‘The Undefeated’: Sarah Palin Film Suggests She’ll Run in 2012 - The Daily Beast

‘The Undefeated’: Sarah Palin Film Suggests She’ll Run in 2012 - The Daily Beast:

Alpha Women Love Adultery As Much As Men Do, Study Says - MyDaily

Alpha Women Love Adultery As Much As Men Do, Study Says - MyDaily:

"'Alpha women look for a partner and conduct their encounters in a very business-like fashion,' Freeman-Jones said. 'They will often grill prospective partners as though they were conducting a job interview.'"

at the reitzal's this afternoon. as soon as i turn up blackberry rd there is a huge cosmic relief. meanwhile my current plan is to: isolate myself in the heat for a week or so and get weller. and in the background some primitive groping towards what to do about the evporating nation-states, and the institutional evaporation of representative government. current thought is whatever it may be if it is an echo of the present zeitgeist it's collaboration. trans-political please.

going to stick around for holiday. moving computers, tables, "stuff", still can't see worth a damn close up.

You may feel invincible today, but your secret weapon is safe from the inquisitive minds of others. This anonymity is because your current power stems from your subconscious mind that's beyond the sensory perceptions of anyone else. Although you may be tempted to explore these hidden non-physical realms, don't lose touch with the real world in the process.
too late.

1970 performance by the byrds. you might have to log in to see it, figuring it was 40 years ago it is a piece from a time that could not last and this video shows why.

still playing with EAW files. this is another version of the same SRF file i shot friday. of course i don't know what i'm doing and am flying blind, little info on how to use this format. but you can see the possibilities.

last night was a combination of sleeplessness and dreams. or one long dream, set somewhere in a huge compound that resembled haiga sofia. owned by an industrial oligarch, i had been invited for some sort of celebration, maybe his daughter's. i of course immediately left my excellant suite of rooms to explore and never made it back, lost in a maze of stair cases, gates, portals, other living spaces, an artist studio, outside grounds that included canals, pools, lakes, and a zillion entrances and gates leading to more expansive floors, halls, dead-ends etc. you get the picture. the entire time i kept running into a growing guest list, mostly young folks, many of them young women who i physically would engage in some sort of tentative action and relatioship. oh yeah, should mention that i, like the owner i met briefly, was dressed in a long flowing robe vaguely oriental.

nightmare? nah, just another swing thru the other side.

Exhibition Monet 2010 - RMN - Grand Palais - Paris

high bandwidth site worth the wait if you have to let it load on a less than optimal speed. you can spend a lot of time here. only wish there was a way to turn off music besides turning speaker volume down.

astrological comment on my day today:
But even your most direct approach could get lost in your foggy mental landscape. Your friends might believe that you are being contentious now, but you're not. Remember, you can still play well with others even if you're marching to a different drummer.

lost in the woods again. a spell of not feeling so hot but pushed by a number of "must be done" things. no observations of note. no direction home.

beautiful time lapse set in canary islands. this set my monkey mind into motion, thinking how artifice today captures what our experience rarely can.
