will watch this later... i'm in a hurry... got to catch the train...

 

meanwhile "signs of (crazy)"

 

 

B. Storm's beautiful American Sign Language interpretation of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy." This was one of the best videos on the Internet, and has been censored by WMG - it's gone from YouTube and it was very hard to find anywhere else. It is a FAIR USE of the song, and its censorship is a tragedy.

 

enjoy

Here's another bit of Laurie Anderson. I have the album on cassette tape. Yeah, I've been a fan for quite a while. The stage production is much more elaborate than I imagined, and there are songs that didn't make it into the album.

no i won't forget any friend, vice versa it is, i made a couple of new friends.

sorta friends in flesh and blood which i missed much in the past.

 

(sorry if i don't visit often i hope i find more time in the near future)

 

one of the dudes in the therapy group has become a close friend to me and we spend a lot of time together.

most of them (especially some women) like me much and it's a damned good thing to paint and craft.

as i expected i even start to take influence on some therapists, our painting therapist starts to like how i draw flames/drops (cool!) and we talk a lot about the sense of colors.

recently i make linoleum printings and they turned out very well, it's a whole lot of fun and everybody likes the results.

the whole thing is a new concept as they told me, members are quite free in this therapy, you won't be forced to - you can if you like.

if you feel tired or feel not able you are free to rest, that's very good for some.

the main therapy is crafting, do something for yourself and the result will make you feel better.

mostly if someone is new you will hear this: "i can't paint" or "i can't sculpt".

but what a error, everybody can.

the therapist for woodcrafting and sculpting is a very good artist, he thinks big and has a lot of patience.

if you aren't in the mood or you have no idea, rest or read a book, get inspired by other artists work which is a quite good idea.

 

they select even some works and show them yearly in a exibition, that's good and will give some the needed self-confidence and respect to go on.

 

what impresses me personally much is a old book (~1850) about japanese textile designs, i knew they can do it! why do they forgot it?

 

ok, i have a photography of a sculpture on my phone let's show it off, it's something abstract it was the idea of the therapist that i should try something like this and to my own surprise it turned out quite good (in advance, not everybody must like it it's a quite simple looking object.

 

[attachment=3211:IMG_20150806_153952.jpg] [attachment=3212:IMG_20150806_154048.jpg]

 

a few words about the how, it's all handcrafted - no machines used (except for the soldering of the wires) even if he suggested to use machines i liked to do as most as possible without. the base of the object intentionally was made only to give the wire a spiral shape but i decided later to join it to the sculpture as a base.

the wood i used is limewood because it's easy to work with.

the precision is not as good as i liked it to, at least the sphere is close to a perfect sphere.

to make the spiral was a treat, i'm not as good in geometry that i would know how to calculate this (shit!), neither i looked up for some help in the web.

of course with a lathe it would have become far better, but that would be the work of a machine.

 

what it should be i leave up to you, i wonder if someone catches the idea.

 

no, it's no elephants suppository 😉


 

to stay to the topic a clip (i hope i didn't posted it already):

 

once again, let's do the timewarp

 

 

 

(i just love dancing, did i told this already?)

more dancing (don't fear i found many more of clips to share)

Gernot! Gernot was here!

You have been missed. Thats great your getting into printing and sculpting. I remember you were very good indeed at doing printing so its wonderful your getting back to doing something you enjoyed in the past. Perhaps an Imperial Courier sculpture (Gernot style of course) next? I am only kidding of course. The main thing is it's great your back. Take care of yourself Gernot, we are always here.

hi there dear geraldine,

not quite "back" but still alive - fortunately

 

un-FORTUNATELY

 

i had a "wallenberg syndrom" ( Lateral medullary syndrome ) last october,

no fear it's "harmless" and i'm well.

 

that was quite a story,

i woke up on a sunday morning and lost my balance (i couldn't walk anymore, if i tried i made a salto) as well the ability to speak proper (lost sensitivity on tongue), left side of head and right side of body was affected,

still my skin responses sometimes wrong to heat or cold.

to me it appeared quite funny (which surprises doctors and therapists) and still i have to grin if i remember that.

 

yes it's a sort of stroke ("graze shot" we say in swiss german)

 

however, my machine (body) is still functional.

since that affects only the stern it's usually only a question of a few weeks until the brain can use a different part to replace the disabled part.

 

what harms me more is that i again lost access to web due to lack of funds, thus i can comminicate (again) only from my moms laptop,

which finally means once per month or something like that.

 

to stay to the topic (sorry - time is measured, it's such measured that i havent't the time to watch today)

a clip i watched at winter solstice (or else)

 

 

no need to cry,

better start to change a few things,

even (or especially) in our own lifes.

to talk "tacheles"

every "dollar" we earn only by business and not by craft is weighted up with the blood of innocent children.

hard words i know - but it's a simple fact.

 

have phun (nonetheless)

 

 

P.S.

dunno if there's life on mars

but there's life on earth

but it looks like we try hard to end that

@Gernot

 

I'm sorry that happened to you but I am sure you will recover.

 

I send you a big hug.  Thank you my friend for your humanity and your beautiful art. 

 

I would say more, but, you know, the English words are not my strength.

no need to feel sorry for that, it's just life - nothing more and nothing less.

Gernot! Gernot was here!!!

Great to hear from you and you are making a recovery from your illness. I also send you a hug to add to walterar's. Take care of yourself Gernot you will always have a home in this little bit of the internet.

 

And yes more music legends have left us. You get used to having these people around but as we all get older, one by one they get fewer and fewer. At least with these guys we still have their amazing music. That will live forever!

Just like the incredible Jimmy Smith

Chaff, eh... how is SC shaping-up, amiga? What about ED? I've walked away from both game and forum.

 

Meanwhile, the hooded guy with the scythe would like to introduce himself.

ED trundles on. Ive been out exploring, wandering really. The planets are quite beautiful at times.

As for Star Citizen, well, yes there is progress but still many bugs. It is supposed to be "out" sometime this year. Will it? I can't say, but they will need to get alot more content into it sooner rather than later if they are to meet that deadline.

As for the Reaper..
