Dancing Bird : Snowball the Cockatoo

I heard this story on wnyc today and looked up the video. Nothing short of amazing; and not surprising if you've ever been around a big bird like this.

This is how I feel : I Love COFFEE

I saw this picture online accompanying an article about caffeine/ energy drink consumption. I was like "I wish I had that right now!." Do I have a problem?

Don't answer that.

"Here is Always Somewhere Else" the Disappearance of Bas Jan Ader

I watched a great documentary last night on the dutch/ californian artist Bas Jan Ader. I first saw an image of Bas Jan's Fall II on the cover of Tate, ETc. magazine while I was in art school. I was awestruck; I already knew about Vito Acconci and Chris Burden, who made similar work, but who was this guy with the unusual and beautiful Dutch name hurling himself into a most picturesque canal? I somehow knew he was a tragic charater from the beginning and my instinct was right on. Bas Jan Ader was lost forever at sea in 1975 performing his last artwork called (profoundly) In Search of the Miraculous. The film follows his history and emigration to America and the development of his career as an artist. His wife believes that he did not die on purpose, but watching the documentary a serious doubt is cast.

He was the real thing.

Here are some of his video works.

Top 5! (so far) Funny Sexual-Themed Spam email subjects

I plan to add more as they come. I have a childish sense of humor, I know. #1 - Better wang parameters #2 - Forget what an erection looks like? #3 - No problem in raising wang

new ones!
#4- Support your custard launcher (raunchy!)
#5 - Turn your snake into a python

I plan to make it a top ten and it shouldn't take too long because I get about 5 or more of these a day while I'm at work. I cannot believe that they ever work, but they must sometimes or we wouldn't get any, right?

This is a collage I made for Ashley:
