snail's pace

ESSENTIAL LISTENING: david suzuki's one hour radio show called the last call in which he interviews david cheesewright (CEO of wallmart canada), james lovelock (gaia theory), annie leonard (the story of stuff) and al gore (vicepresUSA/inconvenie...nt truth) about our consumptive lifestyle and what we need to do to save the planet. (*radical change needed*) thanks anne!!

i heard this CBC podcast a few weeks ago and it's awesome!

i hope nobody thinks i am a jerk for saying there is too much art out there. i think i speak from years of experience and awareness - even if only standing on the sidelines, holding up the walls and watching. everything.

A beautiful PAPER FIRE by jamie q! now that's damn fine & necessary art!
her art is great. my favourite sculpture of hers is a plastic take-out fork with a tine broken off and a piece of trident gum wrapper paper wrapped around the handle.

um...i am working on my book and it's hella slow going. i only have a few boundaries: no boys allowed. no images of couples. mostly all colour and trying to have no text. it's challenging to separate the vast body of work (see: too much art) i've produced over the last few years. lord geezus. help me.
i do produce alot of work but alot of it is NOT NECESSARY. people need to edit more. esp people who post hundreds of stupid & bad photos on facebook.

Thanks for posting that podcast. Mel & I really enjoyed it. I actually have the James Lovelock book on hold at the VPL.
