He Dejado

He dejado de esperar que tú me quieras

He bajado a la tierra, sin diamantes ni sirenas

Yo era uno afuera del cánon

Como un búho me refugié

Hubo miles que se burlaron

pero ahora me quieren morder

Me despierta el vidrio volcánico

Ya no quiero que vuelvas a mí

Solo para untarme de besos mecánicos

A tu juicio, yo nunca crecí

He dejado de esperar que tú me quieras

He bajado a la tierra

Dulce y triste, gatuna crisálida,

más o menos amante de mis ojos

En el cine consientes mi mano

y entre amigos me quieres hundir

He dejado de esperar que tú me quieras

He bajado a la tierra, sin diamantes, ni violencia

Sin sirenas. Te he dejado.

I had the chance to talk to Chris a bit. Wish we’d had more time. I admire his project, especially the self-published aspect. Chris will be in Port Clinton tomorrow night, I will be there Tuesday. http://goba.com/goba-portclinton/

Bob Seger Book Notes

In the summer of 1976, Michigan had a soundtrack: Live Bullet, by Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

Frenchtown: 1812

A presentation about the battle in Frenchtown (now called Monroe, Michigan), by the Harbor View Historical Society. Featured speaker: Lt. Col. Nick Sass USMC (Ret). With Samuel J. Bonifas, President Harbor View Historical Society, and Michael A. Joseph, curator.

I was fortunate to be back in Toledo a new able to catch this interesting presentation about what happened in this area in 1812. Nick is full of facts, perspectives and humor.

10 Trial Balloon Sentences

A project is forming; for now...

  1. The musical similarities between Love Me Tender and O Tannenbaum. 
  2. Maybe I should have been nicer to him.
  3. 9:30: rats, great champagne and a column on the stage.
  4. Money Changes Everything. A million hugs and all that.
  5. A painting of Daniel Webster was in the blast; his face became papery fragments that were later picked from the rubble with tweezers.
  6. No millionaires in the front row, no video screens anywhere.
  7. Thursday Afternoon, computer keyboard noises, and doors that bang shut; the elements composing the musical theme of this subterranean, very air-conditioned concrete room.
  8. The Dragon Cafe is surprisingly expensive: the raisin roll was $HK11, compared to the nearby Pie and Tart shop, which charges $HK18 for a huge lemon raisin roll and a cup of yuangyang.
  9. A perfect note, ten seconds long, and sung from a garbage can. 
  10. Woodstock.

19 Crimes AR: the artwork of the millennium (Viva la ARPOP!)

19 Crimes has created the most relevant artwork of the millenium. With it, ARPOP is born. Ponder its relationship with:

- Rembrandt, Dodd, Warhol, and Anderson

- the legacy of black and white photography

- the world becoming MOMA

- the innovations of VR artists

- the act of viewing. AR can become a form of performance art on a private, intimate level

- cinema!

- a companion piece: Duchamp's urinal.

- the "lighthouses"(galleries, theatres and museums) that are no longer the dominant guides for social and cultural navigation. AR, GPS and social media, viewed on glowing phones and tablets, are replacing ivory towers. Decentralization is the future. 19 Crimes exemplifies the future of art.

-ARPOP is born.

I will be discussing ARPOP at ECHA this weekend:
