Listen up. I'm looking for someone to take over this community. I was ever so flattered when Ozzy handed it over to me, but I let it die when he did. At one point his was my favourite community at MBP, and it'd be a pain to see it death anymore.

So if anyone's interested. Please. Just comment.

54 tons. 51 miles. 21 football fields.

I tested positive in 1988. My wife and I had to wait three weeks to get back a negative. I had another negative six months later. I've had negatives ever since.

By the skin of my teeth. 40 million other people weren't so lucky.

Use condoms. Know who you sleep with. Use clean needles. Don't be an idiot like I was.

Three Graces, Michael Parkes, 2000 & Three Graces, Peter Paul Rubens, 1638 [17 Nov 2005|04:14am]

The first work I ever bought was a version of The Three Graces, which has been done by a million people in a million different forms. The Parkes piece, the first, is a contemporary painting I bought a few years ago and now hangs in my London flat. The Ruben, the second, is the most famous rendering in history, I think, and is usually found in either the Louvre or the Ufizi. I'm not sure what it is about the Graces that pleases me so much, but I've bought probably twenty different renderings in several different formats over my lifetime, and they never seem aged or dull to me. Anyway. Pretty.

Watercolour pen on watercolour paper. This was one of many, many, many done while in temporary retirement. Y'know, after the doctors told me I had six months to live.

The work I'm posting wasn't made by me, and I had no part in making it. I don't even own it, although I do own a postcard with an image of it that sits on my desk at home. No, I just wanted to post it because it is a work I saw when it was showing at The Brooklyn Museum, and it really touched me because it was at a time when I was suffering with a lot of negativity being foisted on me. I'd just moved to New York, and people were telling me that I'd never make it. My own father told me I'd better be damn good if I wanted to make it because, you know, female musicians aren't taken seriously. I don't want to go into a huge lecture about it, but at a time when people were patting me on the head and going, "Oh isn't that cute, the little girl wants to play musician!" this hit me really hard. It inspired me to think of all the women who'd forged their way regardless of if they were recognized for it at the time or not. Made it hard not to realize I had to do what I loved no matter what people said. It's stuck with me ever since.

My first "big" purchase and probably my favourite, still. Loaned currently to the Manchester if anyone wants to swing by and see it in person -- it's worth it.

I've been meaning to make this post for a while, now, but I'm really self-conscious and paranoid when it comes to my photography. I've only just worked up enough nerve to share a few examples of what I often do in my spare time.

I met this girl three years ago, working at a Starbucks in New York. She doesn't work there anymore, so don't go looking for her. Anyway, something about her really captivated me. I had to capture her on film. It took me a year and a half of my patronage to really establish enough of a relationship with her for me to work up the courage to ask if she'd pose for me.

She said yes.Collapse )


There are many more, but those are some of my personal favorites.

Okay, so I admit it. Films inspire me. I had some down time and M.Butterfly was on the independent film channel. It’s one of my favourite plays, and the film isn’t so terrible.

I don't usually enjoy abstract. I never see much except colors and patterns, and I feel stupid. However, I love this guy.
Rassouli. The Contact.Collapse )

And I very much agree with this statement by The Chronicle Review-- "Sensed Beyond Sense: The painter Rassouli doesn't paint abstraction, just realities we can't see."
His canvases are "...Art that dances, with no dancers...."


And I'm not even going to attempt to give this one a try.
