aguacero de cieno

without comments

la noche se inicia?
en picada profunda

su?fina ceniza de hulla
llueve impuros monsones

de tiempo sin medida
que coagula el mar

logrando un puente
de carronya compacta–

costa a costa quemada
puerto a ruina de puerto?

esperando romper el alba
por el horizonte gris

November Arc, Barcelona 2003

without comments

she wear th fat belt
she meet my eyelid
she draw her butt cheek line
so dark & close to my own dead & gone edge

she hold th crowd back
she keep a friend cool
she trigger-happy looker
wearing my own stolen heart of gold
–on cuff-linked sleeves, dear–

surrender, dear eye– do remember, my eye–
think again, sink again, try again, memory!

she sit on blow clean slate
she squeeze my mem’ry gland
she march all night on lace-white friends
all grown so old before our time!

she foreign spectate– or
correspond to speculate address!
(in my mind’s eye only–
argue come to blows again?)

OK, the lowdown: Custom Crush Your Own Wine

without comments

Hola, todos–

Alan Baker, whose decision to make Pinot Noir from Wentzel Vineyard in Anderson Valley was my own catalyst for involvement, conducts a thorough, focused interview with Crushpad director Michael Brill in th linked podcast.
This will provide better answers to questions about th workings of th project than any I might attempt. Hope this clears any doubts and inspires many of you to join in!


The services provided by custom crush facilities range from the bare
minimum of equipment and facility use, to a full service operation
which does absolutely everything, from acquiring the grapes to
delivering the cases of wine with labels they design for you
according to your instructions.

I’ll take a look at how this is done today with an interview with the president of one of the most innovative of custom crush facilities, Crush Pad in San Francisco.
At right is Michael Brill president of Crush Pad, in the barrel room of the urban winery he started in 2004.

Basically the smallest batch of premium wine you can make is a single barrel.

One barrel = 25 cases = 300 bottles

Custom crush facilities will typically charge you by the barrel or by the case with various things included. The two operations here in Northern California which cater to those who are not as familiar with the winemaking process both charge by the barrel. The price ranges
from about $4,000 to as much as $10,000, with the majority of the wines that us wine geeks would really want to go for landing
somewhere in the middle of that range. This makes the bottle price range from around $14 to $35.

Well, turns out that Lonelygirl15 really wasn’t – Intl Herald Tribune

without comments

…are you following this??
You’ve all read Wm. Gibson’s Pattern Recognition, I trust? Life imitates Art, & at a furious pace…

I have a project generally inspired by th book & th Chris Marker classic?La Jet?e, featuring a mix of found footage & clips?
from my ‘94- ‘99 stint as video documentarian– finally threw in th towel on digitizing 25-26 hours of Hi6 footage on my iMac G5
& took it to a pro…let’s see how far that $et$ me back…


The discovery and the swift and subsequent revelation of other details surrounding the perpetrators of the videos and the fake fan site that accompanied it are bringing to an end one of the Internet’s more elaborately constructed mysteries. The fans’ disbelief in Lonelygirl15 was not willingly suspended, but rather teased and toyed with. Whether they will embrace the project as a new narrative form, condemn it or simply walk away remains to be seen.

The masterminds of the Lonelygirl15 videos are Ramesh Flinders, a screenwriter and filmmaker from Marin County, Calif., and Miles Beckett, a doctor turned filmmaker. The high quality of the videos caused many users to suspect a script and production crew, but Bree’s bedroom scenes were shot in Flinders’s home, in his actual bedroom, typically using nothing more than a Logitech QuickCam, a Web camera that retails for about $150.

Together with Grant Steinfeld, a software engineer in San Francisco, Flinders contrived to produce and distribute the videos to pique maximum curiosity about them.

Jill Sobule’s musical tribute to Helen Fisher

At TED2006, Helen Fisher delivered an unforgettable talk (now available online) focusing largely on love: Its evolution, its vital importance to human society, and the science behind the stages of lust, infatuation, and long-term attachment. Inspired by Fisher — and, well, slightly disturbed by the biochemical basis of it all — singer/songwriter Jill Sobule penned a pensive tribute, which she began performing in clubs this spring.

We didn’t want to wait for the next CD, so Jill recorded a special demo just for TED … Here, timed with the release of Helen Fisher’s TEDTalk, is Jill’s lyrical response: The End of Love (MP3. Duration: 3:33).
