  1. Here is a link to the zoom artist talk tomorrow at 7:00pm ET. Feel free to share it with anyone who might be interested. If you have questions, fire away. You will be working on the talk today and tomorrow. https://apsu.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_jiC0gqw_TdSj5-nj-_ML6g
  2. Thank you so much wp. I really enjoyed our collaboration on the fallen Angel project
  3. Thanks bb. One of the hard parts of this exhibition for me is not getting to meet folks and share conversations around the work. I think the new work is definitely making some headway. Hope thinks are well with you and the family
  4. Thanks JB! It has been a long path, but things are great now. I am probably more of a grinder than talented- but I appreciate your kind words.
  5. Hey strangers, I hope you are healthy and safe. 15 years ago, post Hurricane Katrina, this amazing board donated money and shared it with Football guys impacted by Katrina. Joe B matched the total. it made a huge difference for me- the amount was 4x what I received from FEMA, the Red Cross and the government combined. This exhibition at Austin Peay’s New Gallery tells some of that story. The link has a snappy 3D virtual tour and an audio guide. I have never had a show documented at this level of quality Show at Austin Peay’s New Gallery White circles- where you can stand virtually and see clearly blue circles- text red circles- audio guide feel free to tell me something funny that I have missed- or just make something up
  6. Rougher ride on the older forester anyway. Also, with two car seats ( thank goodness those days are over, there was only room for a small teen in the back, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a boring SUV. Subarus are EVERYWHERE in Maine.
  7. Haven't checked the board in months, then I saw this thread. You can probably find someone better, but i would be happy to help.
  8. Gronk took a little time off from the summer of Gronk , to send my son who is recovering from a second emergency surgery at pediatric hospital in Maine - a get well soon video. It was awesome,
  9. What you have shown here though within my skillset. feel free to send me data, logo files and thumb nail napkin sketches and I can get you something pretty useful, visual and functional for the short-to-mid term. Not hurt feelings from this end if you don't use it, or when you swap over to a better one.
  10. Rothko painted in oil only on large canvases with vertical formats. Very large-scale designs were used in order to overwhelm the viewer, or, in Rothko's words, to make the viewer feel "enveloped within" the painting. For some critics, the large size was an attempt to make up for a lack of substance. In retaliation, Rothko stated: He even went so far as to recommend that viewers position themselves as little as eighteen inches away from the canvas so that they might experience a sense of intimacy, as well as awe, a transcendence of the individual, and a sense of the unknown. Rothko began to insist that he was not an abstractionist and that such a description was as inaccurate as labeling him a great colorist. His interest was: I got married at the Rothko chapel in Houston. Some folks thought it was the most depressing place every for a wedding and we're looking for the paintings. Others thought it was the most spiritual place they had ever been. I am mot a fan of Rothko' s in print. But, if you see one in person, and just stare at it- not try to decided what it represents, or what it means, or if you could do it- but just stare at it, sometimes your heart might start to race. It happened to me once, and aside from some James Turrell work, I haven't had that experience with art. Sometimes, they open up like a portal, and that rectangle in front of you starts to tremble and vibrate. It is similar with some Jackson Pollack work. It is one think to stare at the splatters on your tablet. It is another to sit on a bench in the MoMa and just stare at that sucker, or try to follow a line through the composition.
  11. I like everything about this show. I think the shots are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen, in film or tv. I am not surprised Pizzolatto studied a painter. Many of the landscape backdrops are stunning in composition and color. Fukunaga is fantastic. The show reminds me, both in look and feel, of the movie the Pledge with Jack Nicholson.
  12. Beaumont is a city in TX about 30 miles west from the Louisiana border and about 90 miles east of Houston. It has about 100,000 people, 15-20k go to Lamar university. It sits right on I10 is the maine highway that goes across southern Louisiana and central tx. On the outskirts of Beaumont, you can get into serious bayou country by boat. All sorts of sketchiness is available out there- meth labs, dog and #### fighting, you name it. Marty was instructed to listen to the Beaumont police scanner.
  13. Years ago, I think it was just after Katrina, I was headed into Texas for an exhibition and knew about a pretty soft game. I was pretty broke and the storm and family illness had wiped out my bankroll and frankly, most everything we had. Assani and I had never met, but had exchanged some writings about a possible poker book.Long story short, Assani just sent me a check for a grand. I suggested some different deals, him getting a cut of my winnings, different ways to protect him if I lost- but he was awesome. He wanted no deal, no worries if I lost the money, just pay it back if I could. I had a hard time cashing the check on short notice ( due to issues on my end not the check) and couldn't cash it before the game. I then just decided that my head wasn't right for poker because I just needed the money too badly and it is hard for me to play right when I am thinking about the reality of the value of the money on the table, rather than just making reads and slinging chips. I tore up the check. However, the fact that I didn't cash the check doesn't detract from the fact that Asssani sent me a grand, no strings attached with no need to repay unless I good. He will always be good people to me. Well Assani sent you a check to cut a deal if you win. I just send you money to help you through your hard times. I sent it through Keesrock and it had nothing to do with poker,just to help you out. But WTF do I know, I am an #######, but I give not take. I really don't know what's going on here or why you singled me out in this weird non-sequitur. You asked me a question about Assani. I answered. You seem angry with me and I have no idea why. Two things: 1) Assani wasn't cutting a deal with me. He was sending the money. It was generous. I thought that was a poker funding question, as that is the nature of this thread (or was). 2) I have, in many times, many threads, many places and over many years, made a general "thank you" to the good people at football guys for contributing to the FBG Katrina relief fund. It made a huge difference in my family's life. I can grind out a life of sleeping on hard floors, eating ramen, etc, but it was heartbreaking when my daughter had no crib, no books, and no stuffed animals or soft blankets.I probably have not often thanked specific individuals particularly well. So let me tell you, belatedly, but most sincerely, thank you for your generous spirit and your kindness. That gift gave us a lot of hope, when that was little something we were in short supply of. A most genuine thank you to you.
