Thomas S. Hines fleshes out the heroes of L.A. architecture with a smart look at their most important buildings.
the new farewell mills gatsch hyperbolic-paraboloid roofed snack stand at lk tbh.
Its walls are made from concrete block the color of wet cardboard, and the mortar that holds them together seems to have been squeezed straight from a tube. You won't see a single window when you arrive at the Trenton Bath House, never mind a conventional front door.the bathhouse was featured at its most dilapidated state in the L Kahn 2003 documentary my architect made by kahns son. its a corker! glad the reno is finally complete.
The New Jersey summer camp that commissioned this little pool house from Philadelphia's Louis Kahn didn't think much of the results. Kahn finished the building in the scorching summer of 1955, and was immediately fired from the project. Then, the European and Japanese tourists started showing up.
The spartan pool building that Kahn created for the Trenton Jewish Community Center isn't the sort of architecture you fall in love with at first sight. It's too plain and too cerebral, especially in an age when judgments are often made from photographic eye candy. The Trenton Bath House is a building that hides its wisdom in cool, shadowy corners, and is best experienced in person.
this is a little disconcerting: "The architects also contributed one of the missing pieces that Kahn didn't get to design properly: a snack bar. Similarly modest, its walls are built from concrete block, but of a newer vintage. Its cedar roof flutters up like a butterfly wing, in contrast to Kahn's downward pitch."

notes on anvil! the story of anvil
although the film reads sweetly natural bordering on naive, i suspect the (spoiler alert) victorious ending was in place from the start with the emotional ups and downs leading up merely allowed to play out. that is, its all a tactical career intervention by the films producer/director (hollywood insider and original uk uber-fan) sacha gervasi. thus a career resurrected an injustice corrected. for instance: the rock star interviews, the lawyer in prauge, the influential japanese fan, the record producer signing on (for a fee) and finally the huge show in japan all results of the director making key phone calls. "hey, its sacha gervasi. i'm doing a documentary on anvil ...blah, blah, blah and we really need you on board." still, its a worthwhile film and a good watch (you laugh, you cringe, you cry). and its nice to see an injustice, if not fully corrected, at least nudged in the right direction. a quick check of their website indicates two festival bookings in the next couple of months.

Dialectics becomes materialist when the primacy of the object is established; yet, Adorno warns, “the primacy of the object notwithstanding, the thingness of the world is also illusory. It tempts the subjects to ascribe to the things themselves the social conditions of their production. This is elaborated in Marx’s chapter on the fetish …”13 What is crucial for Adorno is to combine “tenacious opposition against that which exists: against its thingness,” with a staunch rejection of attempts to identify thingness as evil.14 “In thingness there is an intermingling of both the object’s unidentical side and the subjection of people under the prevailing forms of production—their own functional relations, which are obscure to them.”15 While, on the one hand, thingness (das Dinghafte) stands for the subjection of people under alienating and mystifying forms of production; on the other, the thing stands for the non-identical, for that which escapes the clutch of instrumental reason. It does so more fully than the object, which is “the positive face of the non-identical”; in other words, “a terminological mask.”16 Objecthood is thingness objectified, subjected to concepts in the same way that a subject is a person become concept, a legal-philosophical abstraction; a thing is to an object as a person is to a subject.via st fb

The Saragossa Manuscript
ordered on impulse from netflix, it turned out to be an incredible experience and a big surprise. i only looked it up afterwards.
The film was released in Poland  uncut at 182 minutes, but it was shortened for release in the U.S. and UK at 147 minutes and 125 minutes, respectively. During the 1990s Jerry Garcia, together with Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, financed a restoration and subtitling of an uncut print of the film. The restored film, re-released in 2001, is commercially available in VHS and DVD formats.
Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Luis Buñuel, David Lynch, Lars von Trier, Harvey Keitel and Jerry Garcia have at various times described The Saragossa Manuscript as their favorite film. The film won the Golden Wolf at the 1965 Bucharest Film Festival.
