uh, like a horse...

so hbo has a new show. it's kinda like weeds. that is if John Holmes were starring in it! Thomas Jane (yummers!) Anne Heche and some other chick i've never heard of (Jane Adams) are starring in it and it's slated for a June 28 premiere (a day before my birthday!)

Years ago in high school, Ray Drecker (Thomas Jane) was athletic, popular and destined for success. Now, as a high school teacher and basketball coach, he's underpaid, uninsured and embittered that his wife of 20 years (Anne Heche) has left him for her dermatologist. After a fire damages the rundown Detroit home he inherited from his parents, Ray's fortunes reach an all-time low when his twin children, who had been living with him, move in with their mom and her clean-freak hubby. Lonely, run-down and at wit's end, Ray attends a local self-help class whose mantra is to identify a person "winning tool" to market for financial success. After a not-so-fulfilling encounter with a fellow attendee - an ex-flame and would-be poet named Tanya (Jane Adams) - Ray has a "eureka!" moment. With the help of Tanya, Ray resolves to take advantage of his greatest asset, in hopes of changing his fortunes in a big way.


Eno Henze

So not much is available about Eno except that he's a German digital artist living in Berlin, and his work is amazing, typically large-scale and has an organic feel to them. I'm in total awe of his work, it's like someone threw James Nares and cheesecloth in a washer, added a couple drops of food coloring et voila! an Eno Henze piece appears!

The following pictures are from his "Human Factor" series which he's been working on since 2006 and he considers it "a collaborative process between me and the machine."

Another of his series "The Subjektbeschleuniger (subject accelerator)" mimics signatures subatomic particles leave in collision detectors such as installed at the CERN in Geneva. They kind of remind me of this Native American pottery I used to collect where they would set horse hair in the clay before they would fire the vases/pots and it would love amazing squiggly lines throughout, almost like black streaks of lightning.

...now here's some of that pottery I was talking about...


eeek! my first posting...

okay, I"m all giddy inside and excited and nervous. why? i don't know, i mean, it's just a blog right? I"ve blogged for years on myspace and have had tons of journals why am I freaking out? i don't know. I need to give a major shout-out to the lovely Erin H. for getting me to start a blog and the super twins Gabby and Elizabeth who encouraged me to actually do it. Thanks ladies! oh, by the way, in case you haven't noticed, I am a very schizophrenic typer. I seldomly use correct punctuation and even more seldomly ever capitolize when I'm supposed to. okay, back to my little whatever you want to call it. so here is my first blog posting. is everyone's first post this weird and lame? i sure hope so! well, I'm going to explore this damn blogger thing. see how I can funkify my blog and hopefully you'll start to see the fruits of my labor in the near future. HAPPY WEEKEND Y'ALL!
