alright, ago. you cant call my cell phone when im at work and leave no message. not when ive applied for a bunch of jobs with your organization and now im imagining that i have missed my window. maybe it has to do with my membership, but i always get automated messages for that. maybe i should call back, but there was no extension and so i will be more of an annoyance than anything. "hey uh, someone called me from this number?" nope.
i once quoted the movie amelie, c'est l'angoisse du temps qui passe qui nous fait tant parler du temps qu'il fait, it is the anguish of passing time that makes us speak of the weather.. more or less. but in french theres a lovely repetition since temps refers to both time and weather.
if you are in new york, let me live vicariously through you and please go see andy warhol:motion pictures at the moma. i feel like warhol was so ahead of the game with his screen test portraits, and saw a few on a larger scale when i was in seattle at the exhibit love fear pleasure lust pain glamour death that i mentioned, here.
to me, the screen test portrait captures (one of) the only things that a photographic portrait cant fully convey, which is gesture, and the character one brings to their appearance through an individual style of motion. this is what is so enamouring and hypnotic about the screen tests. as i wrote on june 19, the sense of immediacy you feel looking into the eyes of a young edie sedgwick, for example, is so sharply contrasted by the realization that it is not immediacy you are feeling... its just that you are seeing what the still image cannot capture: life, movement, gesture, as it happens.
im open for book recommendations. ive moved from rhinoceros (and other ionesco plays) to the biography of anne boleyn by eric ives that my sister bought me. i have had a very strong interest in boleyn since i first studied the tudors in my undergrad (seriously, sometimes i think i knew her/was her in a past life), and from what i can tell this is the most thorough biography to date. so far, im not finding it as dense as other historical biographies i have read and gives a good sense of a context. ah context. what are you reading?
the isabel marant woman doesnt sport a full face of makeup, or even brush her hair. she wears heels, but only the kind that can be danced in all night, and when shes at home, she’ll most likely be barefoot. theres an air of insouciance about her wardrobe—her clothes look as if she picked them up on a trip to some exotic, far-flung destination, or pilfered them from her grandfather or maybe her boyfriend. marant herself just happens to be such a woman. her effortless brand owes more to serge gainsbourg, and her regular collaborator, paris vogue fashion director emmanuelle alt, than it does to any fantasy femme or hollywood starlet.

title - more from ionesco and the theatre of the absurd. the future is in eggs is a play that continues the story from jacques or obedience. ionesco notes that "the change of decor is of no importance"; facades are of no importance.
an hermès rhinoceros made of ostrich skin. i saw this at the musée des arts décoratifs in paris and spent some time with it.
