“Creating anything is hard. It’s a cliché thing to say, but every time you start a job, you just don’t know anything. I mean, I can break something down, but ultimately I don’t know anything when I start work on a new movie. You start stabbing out, and you make a mistake, and it’s not right, and then you try again and again. The key is you have to commit. And that’s hard because you have to find what it is you are committing to.”
— Phillip Seymour-Hoffman
We didn’t lose Phillip Seymour-Hoffman today. His performances will resonate in our hearts and minds for centuries to come.

Abstract Thoughts #2
C-type on Kodak Endura metallic paper. 67cm x 49.5cm Edition 5 with 2 APs

Often times I have issues with hyperrealist paintings that look exactly like photographs. They remind me of the dreaded high school still life drawing that was obliged to be part of the art school application even if it wasn’t that good. My issues aside, I can appreciate James White’s paintings even though they look exactly like photographs. To me, they look more like film stills from a moody, twisted, cult classic. They’re a little humorous, a little creepy. Perhaps White is depicting an American-Psycho-type obsession of objects or placement of objects found in what I presume to be his home, especially when a few paintings are different views of the same scene.
His photographs are of a similar caliber. Seemingly inverted flash photos printed on Kodak Endura metallic paper with titles like “Abstract Thoughts #7” enhance the disturbing feeling that began with the reference photos for his paintings.

Naps are great and you should take one. Fact!

"To all our listeners, this is what I have to say - God bless you all. And as for you bastards in charge, don’t dream it’s over. Years will come, years will go, and politicians will do fuck all to make the world a better place. But all over the world, young men and young women will always dream dreams and put those dreams into song. Nothing important dies tonight, just a few ugly guys on a crappy ship. The only sadness tonight is that, in future years, there’ll be so many fantastic songs that it will not be our privilege to play. But, believe you me, they will still be written, they will still be sung and they will be the wonder of the world." - The Count (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman in Pirate Radio)


It may be a bit cheesy but I absolutely love the movie Pirate Radio (The Boat That Rocked). I remarked yesterday after hearing the news about PSH’s death, “I was looking forward to many more decades of work from him.”

Measles has surged back in Europe, while whooping cough is has become a problem here in the U.S.

Childhood immunization rates plummeted in parts of Europe and the U.K. after a 1998 study falsely claimed that the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella was linked to autism.

That study has since been found to be fraudulent. But fears about vaccine safety have stuck around in Europe and here in the U.S.

NPR maps the resurgence of preventable diseases due to public ignorance and lamentable misinformation about vaccines.

Pair with Bill Gates on vaccines, animated.
