An effort to describe the diversity of birds led to one of the first modern color systems. Published by Smithsonian ornithologist Robert Ridgway in 1886, A Nomenclature of Colors for Naturalists categorizes 186 colors alongside diagrams of birds. In 1912, Ridgway self-published an expanded version for a broader audience — Color Standards and Color Nomenclature — that included 1,115 colors. Some referenced birds, like “Warbler Green” and “Jay Blue,” while others corresponded to other elements of nature, as in “Bone Brown” and “Storm Gray.”

On Tuesday, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, a federally funded facility outside San Francisco that focuses on nuclear research, released 63 rare, restored and declassified nuclear-test films

The films, uploaded to the lab’s YouTube account, are part of a trove of some 10,000 that have been in storage since they were originally shot between 1945 and 1962, and had been held in secure vaults since then.

Negotiations have been going on for a few months but it's now offical, a number of my films are going into the MoMA archives.  I have to admit it was a head scratcher for me, my stuff isn't well known or great but I didn't put up any arguments.  It turns out the museum is collecting films made by filmmakers who were living in and active in the east village in the 80's so I squeaked in despite being kind of peripheral to that scene. Also, the assistant film curator, back before she was at MoMA, was on a selection panel for a film festival I entered Buoy in.  She argued unsuccessfully that it should be included in the programming but remained a fan. 
Yesterday I shipped a hard drive with the complete elements for Buoy as well as an exhibition copy.  I'm going to get my super-8 and 16mm films scanned to the highest resolution possible before shipping the camera originals and negatives because once they have them I will no longer have access to the material.
I'm told that one or two of my early films will be included in this show in October but so far it seems they haven't nailed down the programming so nothing's certain.

Alex, I haven't submitted our collaborations yet but I would like to so let's talk.

ready to endorse legion. first ep was great but i wasnt sure if it would devolve into some rote marvel property. has managed to stary weird albeit aimless in a traditional plot sense. certainly worth a look. airs on fx.

Greenwald links to a piece in the NYRB by long time Putin critic Masha Gessen. I was going to say it is a worthwhile read, but I guess I really just mean, "this is what I think too*." In any case, there it is.



* Well, it's part of what I think. I'd also go much further than she does here concerning the motivations for neo-liberals who keep relentlessly pushing this story.
