And, before you ask–no, I don’t know what the difference is between “art works” and “photographs.” Although photographs are definitely artworks. Mostly. Most of them. Some of them, anyway.

news from my uncle, Ed:

Francoise just reported that there are three does on the front lawn. The other night when we went to bed there were eight of them out there. I wish we’d look out one day and see eight turkeys. We used to see wild turkeys all the time, but not for a couple of years now. We think the coyotes are encroaching from the north and raiding the nests. This past Monday a friend/neighbor stopped by to say he’d shot a big tom turkey for me, and we needed to go back and find him in the woods. He said he’d gotten a good head shot, but the turkey had supposedly disappeared when the mail carrier drove by. Well, I spent an hour or more searching this steep hillside for the bird, crawling over all this blown-down timber and through big thickets of briars, and never found the bird. In fact, I never saw a drop of blood or a feather. Now, this guy is a big-time drinker, and I have to wonder if he even saw a turkey. He had a 24-ounce Bud in his hand when he came to get me. We finally went to his house and got his dog to track the turkey, but that didn’t produce a bird either. So I guess we’ll have to wait to get our turkey.

The other night over at Archie’s barn one of his old friend showed up. There was beer being consumed, and his friend, Bobby, started spinning some yarns. He told us about how he was down in Roanoke recently and had stopped at McDonald’s for a burger. He left his car at McDonald’s and walked down the steet to the postoffice to mail a letter, at which point he was greeted by a very friendly dog in the parking lot. Well, it turned out that the dog was a drug sniffing dog, and his handlers came up and questioned him, asking him to submit to a search, which he did. They busted him for a pipe, and then asked him if he was driving (in Virginia, they can confiscate your car, I guess, in drug cases), He told them, “Hell, I’m not driving, I’m homeless!” and they released him. He had to wonder around town for a couple of hours until it was safe to go back and retrieve his car at McDonald’s. The episode cost him $150.

Stay tuned, more mountain tales to come…..

Alexandra Nechita

[Nineteen]-year-old Alexandra Nechita was born in Romania in 1985. She began drawing at the age of two. At seven, Alexandra was painting with oils and acrylics, and her first exhibit was a one-woman (child) show held at a Los Angeles public library when she was just eight years old.

Alexandra’s talent was instantly recognized as capacity crowds came to see her amazing and often monumental paintings. After seeing her art, the press labeled her “The Petite Picasso.” She attracted the attention of art critics and the media who began telling the world about this rarest of child prodigies – an artist who had mastered drawing and color, an artist who had created a visual language of her own, in a unique, lyrical, figurative, abstract cubist manner, an artist who had only recently turned nine years old.

Went to New York, yesterday, yadda yadda yadda. Took the bus, as opposed to driving. Saw the Dieter Roth show at MOMA-QNS, which makes me want to start making things, again. I also took a lot of photos. Well, digital photo-like objects. Well, not objects, becuase they are digital. Anyway. The camera with the most and most-interesting images is corrupted. But here are some from the other camera:

low-dose X-ray moving-footage camera

Mar 24 2004 – MillTv has provided the effects for three x one-hour BBC programmes detailing the behaviour and science behind a wide range of amazing reptiles.
The team from MillTv created many graphics showing reptiles in action based on real skeletons. Research was undertaken at a South African University where a low-dose X-ray moving-footage camera had been developed. This bespoke camera was used to film a moving turtle and a snake eating. The results were anatomically interesting, but not visually arresting. So MillTv set about trying to develop an aesthetic in collaberation with series producer, Phil Chapman. These X-ray shots were imbued with vivid colours to achieve a more interesting visual style, often using white backgrounds to differentiate the sequences from conventional X-ray imagery.

To make the X-ray sequences more dynamic, the specially-shot footage was used as a starting point for 3D recreations. Following this approach, MillTv created sequences involving diverse animals and dramatic actions, including a snake biting a rat in ultra slow motion; a lizard eating a rabbit; a whole sequence of snakes following scent trails; and demo sequences illustrating how various reptiles hunt, eat, run, walk, swim and even fly.

Bridge “melts” on Conn. I-95
click on the slideshow for some interesting images.

State police said a car apparently forced the tanker truck into a concrete barrier on the southbound side of the interstate Thursday night. The truck carried 12,000 gallons of home heating oil, which fueled a huge blaze that sent a fireball dozens of feet into the air.

The highway buckled and the overpass, which was new, sagged several feet, said Ronald Jantzen, a state Department of Transportation engineer.

U.S. Newswire – Transcript of Remarks by President Bush at the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner

I have to admit it really ticked me off when Democrats questioned my National Guard service in Alabama. Here’s a photo proving that I was in Alabama fulfilling my duties. (Laughter.) Political campaigns always have their unexpected moments. This next photo is when I heard that Senator McCain said he was considering being Kerry’s running mate. (Laughter.) The next one was taken a couple of months ago. I had just gotten word that Howard Dean had lost Iowa. (Laughter and applause.)
