From the New Yorker, a review of a show mentioned on this weblog a few weeks ago:
“Isle of August” is a collection of videos and photographs of a well-heeled summer world. A tennis player, seen only from behind and the waist down, is oblivious to her flapping, untied shoelaces in “Court Disaster.” A stack of gilt-edged china plates teeters precariously in “Fair field full of dainty,” and a moth lured by a yellow flower bumps endlessly against a window in “buster.” But nothing smashes, no one falls, and the over-all effect is cute rather than menacing. Through Aug. 5. (Castelli, 18 E. 77th St. 212-249-4470.)
Well, "cute" is in the eye of the beholder, especially when a show is viewed selectively. Factual corrections: when a moth hits window glass, it's smashing (to the moth), and the tennis player falls three times if you watch the entire (two and 1/2 minute) loop.

Painter Dennis Hollingsworth has a blog, which combines personal journal-style writing with documentation of his painting process, images and details of work, etc. Scott Speh's critical commentary on Hollingsworth was previously excerpted here. isn't a blog but rather art, meant to be consumed via the medium of the web. The site is anonymous as to authorship, but the man in the cooking show videos looks suspiciously like Ludwig Schwarz, who I mentioned here. Dallas never looks more abject than in his videos and photos.

The volume trailed off slightly during the last few minutes of the 8-Bit Construction Set mix I posted earlier, so I tweaked it in a .wav editor and re-uploaded it. The link in that post now gives you the "enhanced" version, or you can play the file here: [14.28 MB .mp3]

UPDATE: Ha, I asked Cory if anyone else had ever mixed the lock grooves like this before--"I'm not asking whether it's a good idea but just whether anyone has done it" and he said "no."

Wha--? Yes, the page has gone back to the two-column format, after a couple of years with a centered, single column. Firefox (which anyone with Windows is strongly encouraged to use instead of the virus-prone Internet Explorer--download here) did not like the one-column format, and kept rendering the page different widths. Links are now on the left side instead of the FAQ page; otherwise everything's the same. BTW, if your site is not in the link list it may just mean I haven't gotten around to adding it. The list consists of recommendations; absence shouldn't be read as non-recommendation.
