don't go outside




liz and i have been arguing over whether or not the "buildings of disaster" series of miniatures available at moss are interesting, relevant, or stupid. i think that these tiny replicas of sites like three mile island, the world trade center, and the unabomber shack point out the culture of disaster porn. in a way, they are the physical manifestations of the way in which cultural structures and collective memory imbue physical sites with emotional import. the buildings are secondary to the impact upon human lives, but they are a simple way to package an event as a cultural event/souvenir. liz thinks that they're heavy-handed, obvious, and simplistic. good article in the nyt magazine about it today, check it out.

####
was flipping through artforum yesterday, and noticed an ad for the relaunch of the saatchi online gallery. seems to still be under construction to a certain extent, but still worth checking out for loads and loads of images from the impressive collection of late 20th century art.

####

so i'm finally living out every 14 year old's dream and starting a band. or at least getting together with some friends and messing around. i have to pick a song to cover, and here're the ones i'm thinking of:

the faint - worked up so sexual


black flag - tv party

tom vek - i ain't saying my goodbyes

what do y'all think? let me know...

The full-stealth link (fooling around with friends) should be this. Not Speedy's fault - Livid's.

Very interesting set of links today, Speeedrail.

I suspect you may be misrepresenting Liz's arguments against Buildings of Disaster. It's hard to imagine someone describing models that are less than 6" tall as heavy-handed.

Leslie van Stelton looks fascinating - I liked that she wants to do a photo comic since I read a lot of online comics and I can't draw.

I also *loved* reading the Full Stealth interview. If you haven't seen Full Stealth show, DND readers, do! Both F.S. and his camera man, Carlo de Jesus work incredibly hard for your pleasure. F.S. is always super-high energy, bouncing around for hours at a time. Carlo's job isn't easy, either - I would fill in for Carlo sometimes when he couldn't make a show, and F.S. never liked my feed because I would start using static shots when once my arms got tired.

Also joyful to see Full Stealth has a new logo.
