Ignoring Rembrandt

This picture (probably from Reddit I'm guessing as that is source of most 'hilarious' pictures on the inter-web these days) is a beautiful metaphor of the current human condition. It's funny and ticklingly amusing but in a simultaneously depressing sort-of-way. Self-obsessed tweens twexting on the twinter-web all the while whilst one of the great pieces of Western art hangs almost superfluously on the walls behind them. It leads us to bigger questions such as 'is art great because people pay attention to it or is it great because it attempts to communicate some sort of larger truth?' 'Do the tastes of the masses determine what is considered good?' 'Do our subjective experiences comprise the totality of our existence'? 'Subjectivity? Objectivity?' 'Is blah Blah?'

I'll summarize my conclusions thusly: If I weren't already a member of this species I probably would have given up already. I'll give it a few more go's though.

Lift To Experience

I took a walk through the park this afternoon listening to the entirety of the Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads. I feel alive tonight, as if some stirring brought me back to the beginning. Here's a cool live performance of this short lived band back in the early Spring of 2001.

Saras - Debut Show Poster Design

A series of posters I designed for the debut show of my new band Saras. The images were directly inspired by a collection of dead cataloged birds I saw at the Royal Ontario Museum. Show details can be found here.

Bird Houses Along the Gan Trail

Some good humans had built these shelters for birds. I took a picture of each one I found along the 5 km trail.
