Senescent Shaman

senescent shaman by corey le chat

It’s called “Senescent Shaman” and it’s done by Corey Le Chat. You can look at more of his work and loads more of other artists work at Grainbag. You can also buy these works. The curators blog is great, pity it doesn’t have an RSS feed.

The Rasterbator. The Rasterbator is a web service which creates huge rasterized pictures out of relatively small image files. The pictures can be assembled into extremely cool looking posters up to 5 meters in size. You upload an image it spits out a pdf which you print off and put together. I tried a butterfly photo but it seemed to complicated to fit on 8 pages. I’ll try something like someones face. Still it’s fucking cool.

The New Yorker takes the book ‘Eats, shoots and leaves’ to task .

Jared Buckhiester Art Drawings, Photography and T-Shirts. Not sure would I presently fork out $84 for a T-Shirt. I’d consider it if it was a really good one and a rare one. His art has been described as slightly homoerotic.

For those too lazy to search for an answer.

The Naropa University online audio arhcive. This includes Ginsberg doing a reading of Howl. Has lots of William S. Burroughs lectures and talks too. Interesting stuff.

How to make Firefox even faster.

Signal Orange – anti Iraq war site. Well not so much anti but a way to highlight the total disregard to life that the Bush administration has for their own soldiers. It’s a good idea. Get a cause noticed by wearing bright orange t-shirts which are highly visible. Get everyone to turn up at any and all events where theres press coverage. Before long people will know what the t-shirts represent. This could be done in Ireland for some other campaign…

Powdered Alcohol. Not taxed in America either. So many applications…

Art of Maggie Taylor. Using a scanner and photo editing software. Some good work.

Carvel

Friday, June 11th, 2004

When I try I force it out
Never looking in only out
Now is the time for millions to lose
Never the same since I lost you
Running me out of town
Wishing the best around
Would only get you off my back
Heaven receives you and throws you back
Sending a dummy to my God
Driving to eat a Carvel cake
Somewhere you know isn’t where you think
Have you gone away already
All the good things are on their way
Up and down that’s how energy stays alive
And I wouldn’t have it any other way

Shadows Collide with People

Friday, June 11th, 2004

From here.: John Frusciante’s fourth solo album, Shadows Collide with People, is a scatterbrained, eclectic tour de force and a joy to listen to. His guitar work, so sharp and funky for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, mellows for his solo work, and to beautiful effect. Frusciante gets experimental, as he has on his last three solo albums, but this time it really works. This album, though encompassing a wide variety of styles and genres, is ultimately rock music made very, very prettily.

I totally agree. This is an undiscovered gem of a record. I really really like it and has the best opening song on an album that I’ve heard in a while.
