  • Favorite visual art
    Ann Hamilton, Antony Gormley, Christian Boltanski are my big three. Egon Schiele, Anselm Kiefer and Kiki Smith are probably my next three. And Bosch, Fra Angelico and Rembrandt don't exactly suck either. Even so, there are literally hundreds of names written in my sketchbooks...

    I also just found this: http://www.houseofblues.com/tickets/eventdetail.php?eventid=83209! Janelle Monae with Roman Gianarthur @ House of Blues San Diego
  4. L.A. and area - lodging recommendations

    cool. I might check that out (if there's time). i'm definitely planning to head to LACMA for the james turrell retrospective.
  5. I will be heading to L.A. and area for a wedding November 7-12 (ish) and, other than hopefully taking in LACMA, won't be doing much else. Activities will take place in Midway City and Westminster (OC?). I'm a little overwhelmed by it all. Can anyone recommend any decent (read: inexpensive) places to stay? Much appreciated.
  6. not sure what anyone else is doing for national poetry month (in both the US and canada) but i am posting a poem a day at my blog. please drop by, take a dip in the language and perhaps even leave a comment. regardless, happy poeming!
  7. This Is Forty

    wasn't sure where else to post this (and feel free to move it elsewhere) but since she is in this movie i thought it was as good a place as any to put this crazy esquire interview with megan fox.
  8. wanted: kieslowski's decalogue

    i must admit, the fact that copy is in south korea throws me off...
  9. wanted: kieslowski's decalogue

    if anyone frequenting these forums ever sees it (on DVD) for a decent price, could you please let me know? please? please?
  10. this seems like a lovely compilation: 135 of the most beautiful shots in cinema (perhaps, through the corporate knowledge of a&f's members, we could even identify the movies from which these scenes hail?)
  11. Thomas Kinkade

    even art:21 has blogged about kinkade's passing...
  12. David Wojnarowicz

    which? the tacoma art museum, or the wojnarowicz piece?
  13. Levitated Mass

    that's a really big rock.
  14. Most Shocking Plot Twists in Movies
