a picture a day. that is what this blog is about as of today. more or less what i've been doing for awhile anyway. glyphs, symbols, the stuff that i've been posting for awhile now.

these will be all over the map, variations, alternate takes, works in progress.

from time to time some words may be included.

went to bev's birthday yesterday afternoon. very small gathering, mostly the younger folks.

i really enjoyed playing music w/ these folks. all kinds of instruments, folks picking up whatever thing they could emanate sound with, no point or goal except to echo the now.

my age group with a few notable exceptions seems to have lost this knack and it is such a loss. it was a real lift to me to see that it is still in the air and happening thank god.

yesterday douglas falls.

i couldn't sleep last nite. at all. when i looked p frrom the monitors where i was hoplesly looking for ariadne's thread, it was light outdide. tried laying down but nearly vibrated out of bed. so i showered, took care of some household perpendicular angels, and hit the road. errends. when i got back the day was so loely that i drove and hiked to douglas falls where i osmosised HDR photography, example above.

don't know if you saw charlie rose last night. my all time heroine reporter naomi klein was on along with xx. it as the best rose i have ever seen. te guests calmy and with good humor nailed obama not for being a socialist, but for seemingly restoring the ante-staus quo.

i voted for him to change the stranglehold the finance mirage has on you and me. he seems to be changing it back to the warlords, masters of the universe, the demented and disconnected from life.

boo hiss.

checkout the rose interview it can be found on NPR.

ysterday was the first day this i felt sort of comfortable, caught up on major tasks, just a few details left. so i yawed, stretched, and sort of gloated. then i sat down at computerland, took care of a few long neglected glitches, looked up and saw it was light outside.

picture above is one of the results of this whiplash metabolic staccato limbic world.

got hung up trying to create/upload the above. if you can play it - and see it - you're good. i can't.

so consider it a teaser and i'll get it up tomorrow.

meanwhile i'll take a long walk. i am happy to report that i'm almost caught up on all fronts, and it feels kind of.... strange.

**i'll get used to it. the movie plays fine on a fast machine.

vague huh?

picture of a rock i took the other day during a long walk on the parkway. unfortunately it didn't offer an opinion about how to sneeze or how long it takes for the inhabitants of this planet to wake up from the consumer dream that is nothing but a detour, a diversion from any future that might be.

"The problem of Web 2.0 music culture, which often gets overlooked in the hype concerning DIY music culture and digital empowerment, as I see it anyway, is how the internet overexposes music culture, breeding and intensifying a kind of fiendish hunger in everyone -- corporate marketing experts, brand consultants, journalists, bloggers and musicians -- to attempt to pre-empt sonic innovation, to get ahead of the curve, so that anything new that happens can be viewed retrospectively, and therefore its shock absorbed. What happens as a consequence is that the time gap between real invention and mass marketing approaches zero, or even inverts. That's why older notions of futurism are so highly problematic in the age of Web 2.0. I think the shadow of the internet will become an increasingly small but interesting place."
