Sorry to tell you in this manner, but you’ve been infected and now you’re a zombie. You only have your friends to blame. For the rest of the day all of your status updates and tweets must include the phrase “BRAINSSS!!!”. You can infect other people by tagging them in a note on Facebook or […]

There is the premise that if you have to explain a performance art piece it loses its value. However, much like an old movie with a clever twist, if you haven’t seen it by now you can’t blame someone else for telling you that Bruce Willis’s character is a ghost — enough time has passed […]

Poem – Kenneth Koch Recording – Amy Krouse Rosenthal Kinetic Typography – Alan Lastufka I’m not sure if Koch is right, but it makes me think. Like the things that “Levitz”:http://www.powells.com/biblio/0061234001?&PID=27398 or “Gladwell”:http://www.powells.com/biblio/0316017922?&PID=27398 talk about, it seems to make sense at a 30,000 foot view (or what I call “an economics level”), but there are […]

9, the feature film (based on the short film “9”,) has a new clip out. This is a movie that has me rocking in anticipation like a 10 year old after a Super Big Gulp Slushee. ==   ==

I’m messing around with this visual conceptualization tool, called Processing, to see if I should take it up seriously with fervor for my “OBT”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2009/03/03/4142/. I’ve built a page on this site (over there in the left sidebar, near the top) with my “work”. I will add new posts if I do anything phenomenally different from […]

The Guggenheim is currently exhibiting a collection showing the work of “Cai Guo-Qiang”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cai_Guo-Qiang, a Chinese contemporary artist. It was a stunning exhibit and in the center of the museum was a new piece about the prevalence of car bombs in our society and as a reaction to 9/11. Breaking the first rule of the museum […]

SBCG4AP is rumored to be headed for a small home in Portland, Maine. The owner of the home, Kevin Photiades (52), had this to say “No, TVs and Wiis have no place in my home.” Despite the utter super badness of Strongbad in his own video game Photiades denies any desire to purchase a Nintendo […]

Yeah, I’m one of “_those Austinites_”:http://austinist.com/2008/03/07/box_and_horn_gr.php who came here *~¡~* all the way back in 1992 *~¡~* and I was sick of “SouthBy” before it even started last week. You wouldn’t believe how many skinny boys in pencil jeans with 80’s hairdos were wandering around downtown yesterday evening looking _so_ much cooler than me. Still, […]

Speaking of more “ironic/funny/hipster websites”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/03/11/3189/ that are making the rounds, I couldn’t pass up posting the most recent strip from “Garfield Minus Garfield”:http://garfieldminusgarfield.tumblr.com/: due to Jon’s fourth-wall glance. That is some really eerie kismet joke-inside-a-joke shiznit going on there.

Growing up in B/CS, TX my family would often hang out with a few other families whose parents all taught at the local university. I haven’t really kept in touch with anyone, but have vaguely kept an eye on the set of brothers who happen to make films here in Austin. Their new movie, Goliath, is […]
