fda recalls 'nuclear sludge' candy bars for unsafe lead levels
notes: on the berlin home/studio of conceptual artists karin sander recently published in the nyt.
the two floor rooftop addition (actually its a parabuilding) is ugly on the outside and opulently minimal inside. it looks very, very expensive. why do artists want to live like their affluent collectors? how about keeping more of a safe distance from the man.

The tensions of this art revolved around the very old dyad of adulthood and a child-centered world, but landed heavily on the side of the child. Formally, there was an aestheticization of the mode of pastiche, which Fredric Jameson identified in the early eighties as a characteristic mode of postmodern narrative. Here, however, “blank parody” gave way to a reconstruction of past techniques more perfect than the originals, in an irony without sarcasm, bitterness, or critique. Reflexivity was used as a means to get back to sentimental emotion.via MB
In the nineties, it had become commonplace to assume that one could no longer say heartfelt, sincere things outright, because all genuine utterance would be stolen and repeated as advertising. Whatever anguish this caused seemed gone in the artifacts of the early aughts. The ironic games were weightless. The emotional expressions suggested therapy culture, but hipster art often kitschified—or at least made playful—the weightiest tragedies, whether personal or historical: orphans and cancer for Eggers, the Holocaust and 9/11 for Jonathan Safran Foer.

WUSA commercial free on the movie chanel hd - 1970 paul, joanne and ant + an odd police drama sourced supporting cast set in nola. 2.5 stars on imdb aint a great score and too heavy for the hour but this is a great period piece and worth a watch.

To say that we here at Between The Covers have a few boxes of uncataloged items is a bit of an understatement. While there’s a lot of work ahead, it’s fun going through those boxes to see what you find. The other day I turned up a cool item from the collection of Edwin Erbe, former publicity director for New Directions. It’s a copy of Left Bank This Month magazine with the cover story, “Inside the Beat Hotel” by Verta Kali Smart published in the late ’50s. If you’ve never heard of it, don’t be surprise because it seems that no one else has either
