Still ranking right below BLU as my favorite clip of the year, is the TED Talk by Jill Bolte Taylor “A Stroke Of Insight”. Now TED has posted enough of their lectures to warrant a Top Ten (via BoingBoing).
In my dreams, NYC transforms overnight. Manhattan is no longer the island of the super-rich. The ubiquitous advertising is gone. Everything is art. In fact it looks a lot like The Heidelberg Project outside of Detroit. This alone is a reason for a trip to Michigan.
EncyclepdiaPictura seem to be part of a growing wave of mind-blowing filmmakers and artists hellbent on accessing the deep recesses of our lizard brain. When Corbin slipped me the first taste of their work (knife) I time travelled back to my march through Utah’s Paria Canyon in my late teens when I was covered in mud and feeling akin to the Yeti as I scared the various more sane hikers who expected to commune with common nature. Awww, fond memories. Bjork since found them and they gave her a great 3D vid too.
I got a link today to check out a short film at the YouTube Screening Room. I did not yet know about this new feature at YouTube. It’s High Definition.

You missed a great gallery show in NYC. Marlene McCarty’s gigantic pen and ink drawings were a sight to behold. The detail and beauty in each drawing covered entire walls. I was on my way out before I picked up the brochure that told the true story behind each drawing. Dreams, fantasies, and entire other ways of life emerged fully formed but still encompassing that haze of delirium. I never wanted a big house with big walls until I found these big drawings to cover them with.Tweet
