This is what some recent art here looks like on a Mac:

"Greater Powerz" [mp3 removed]
Something for the headphones in the BLOG installation. The rhythms were worked out last July and published as "808 Straight." Decided it needed tunes so I added those.
In the comments
to her blog Paddy and I have been discussing a post
about a Jerry Saltz review
of Walid Raad a while back.
Paddy thinks that might have been one-upmanship, but of who? The point of exposing Jerry's "money graf" was so you could read what he said about Raad without all the BS around it.
Raad has been questioned
Your dysfunctional government at work. According to the Washington Note
, Dick Cheney is mad that Bush appears to be softening on Iran and has cooked up a plan on how to get us into war with that nation.
Meanwhile, neocons are meeting in the Bahamas to discuss how to get the US into an Iranian war
. All the speakers are having their expenses paid and each gets a 1000 dollar fee. The forces of darkness have more money than we do, people.
BLOG, artMovingProjects, Brooklyn, NY. Installation of this blog in project space as seen on May 26, 2007. Thanks to the gallery for sending this photo--I was hoping to get it up while the space was still officially open so we could have a shot of BLOG on BLOG during BLOG. Oh, well there's always tomorrow. "Insanely self-referential" seems like the logical way to treat this project. Kind of the worst nightmare of people who say blogging is all about ego.
GIFs by Charles Westerman
, based on ones I posted earlier (these are enlarged and may fuzz out on Macs, too bad)
Westerman's web page is here
Update: The fuzziness that was once only a problem for hapless Mac users has now spread to Firefox 3. By default the command to enlarge an image now means "tastefully fuzz out for the rubes."
Update 2: After all browsers including IE 8 and Firefox 3 followed the inferior Apple "involuntary anti-aliasing" model I decided to remake these GIFs as they were originally seen on non-Apple computers.
