I see redolence... An internal struggle without agency, as veteran as the punitive tilts towards canopy and coverage, as fugitive in meaning as any counter-regime and its corporeal divisions. I have erupted, like the remover, ever-broadcasting and confederated. Into Iran, I inviolate six nations, as muniment, beyond comprehension. Audiences accord, flocking to the sites from the period after 9/11.

Ash

TRUNK

Oops

I mistook the chancel for a tub of blood
and the lectern for a cup of blood
and the alter for a screen of blood
and the chalice for a spray of blood
and the book for a quart of blood.
I thought the baptismal font was a gush of blood
and the windows stained with blood
and the door choked with blood
and the pulpit awash with blood
and the canopy composed of blood.
It seemed the hymnboard was a box for blood
and the gallery a bag of blood
and the choir stalls so many homes or blood
and the taberancle a dream of blood
and the vestibule an arch of blood.

All stone, stone, stone.

Ah yes, the joys of another "Most Horrible Night In Your Life"! Mr. Krakowiak's ironically (or not) titled experimental music series continues with Vol. 11 set to take place this coming Monday. And I'm in it again! Not surprising considering my reputation, I suppose. Here are the horrible details:

Monday March 15, 8:30pm

-the most horrible night in your life vol.11-

Paul Dutton/William Davison - mouth / objects
Elliot Chapin/Nick Fraser - computer programming / drums
Pau Torres / Joda Clement - Doepfer A100 / Korg MS20 (music to "The
Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes" by Stan Brakhage)

Smiling Buddha, 961 College St., Toronto (where else?!)

Not sure about admission, it's probably PWYC. Looking forward to providing you with a truly awful evening out!

Flood NASA With Phone Calls to Help Save Monkeys!

Dear Friend,

PETA has been relentlessly urging NASA to halt plans to fund cruel radiation experiments on monkeys.

Unfortunately, NASA hasn't had a change of heart, and the window of opportunity to save these monkeys is quickly closing!

Please take a few minutes of your time today to call NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden Jr. at 202-358-1010
and politely ask him to halt plans to fund radiation experiments on monkeys and to direct funding toward modern and humane methods.

Thank you for everything that you do for animals!

Sincerely,

Justin Goodman
Research Associate Supervisor
Laboratory Investigations Department
PETA

The Palais Ideal




Ferdinand Cheval and his extraordinary structure truly embody the spirit of surrealism and became an inspiration for a number of artists such as André Breton, Picasso, Tinguely and Max Ernst who have all created works in homage to this postman from the Drome region of France.

Jonathan Glancey, the Guardian's architecture and design correspondent, included The Palais Ideal in his list of favourite weird and wonderful designs. 'Give Us A Swirl' --
Glancey writes:
"A village postman from the remote Drome province of southern France, Ferdinand Cheval (1836-1924) spent 33 years creating an "ideal palace" from stones gathered on his daily 32km round. Poorly educated and with no knowledge of architecture, he shaped his surreal palace from daydreams, without help.

Considered a madman by fellow locals (whose descendents live off his legacy today, the palace being a big tourist attraction), Cheval was hailed by artists and intellectuals, from Breton and the surrealists to Picasso. Here was - and is - a work of wholly spontaneous surrealist art, a man's dreams turned into a gloriously abstract work of architecture.The Palais Idéal is overwhelmingly bizarre, its handmade architecture drawing its inspiration from what appear to be sources as diverse as Khmer temples, Swiss chalets, Neuschwanstein castle in Bavaria and Hindu shrines - despite Cheval's lack of learning, books or photographs. Some of the palace looks as if Gaudí had a hand in it, and the petrified fountain could easily be by Dalí. Today, Cheval's lifelong work is a national monument."

The most recent homage to Ferdinand Cheval now hangs at the entrance to the Palais Ideal Museum. The American artist Tim Shepard was inspired by the idea that as Cheval followed his postal route through the landscape around Hauterives it was this life, daily immersed in the forms from nature which provided the foundation upon which the Palais was built. Over several days in the summer of 2009 Shepard spent the morning and afternoon retracing Cheval's postal route ending up each day in the late afternoon at the Palais itself. "In doing so I gained such a strong sense of the relationship between the landscape and Cheval's own formidable expression of it." Shepard creates photomontages by combining together hundreds of photographs taken whilst visiting particular sites and landscapes. " I am interested in creating landscapes which exist somewhere between reality and imagination -- very much in the way one might remember a landscape or dream of a place where one has been. I like the idea of taking into sleep the things of the day and tearing them up in our mind to recombine them into dreams. Everything in my pictures exist -- they are photographs of actual things and are not altered in any way -- but after cutting up all these various elements they come together again and express something of the essence or spirit of the place rather than the actual place itself."

Will the real Recordists please brandish their lobsters

No, this is not Recordism... (the following link)
http://www.recordism.org/2008/09/what-is-recordism_14.html

So, uh, this person couldn't do a Google search to see if someone might already be using the term? No alarm bells went off when recordism.com was already registered?

WTF???!!!
