Willie Cole's African Art
Topic: Arts 11:05 am EST, Nov 29, 2009

>Willie Cole’s art is best known for assembling and transforming ordinary >domestic and used objects such as irons, ironing boards, high-heeled shoes, >hair dryers, bicycle parts, wooden matches, lawn jockeys, and other >discarded appliances and hardware, into imaginative and powerful works of >art and installations.

I saw some of his work the other day at the High museum. I found it very interesting because he uses found objects like shoes or irons to make art that mimics the patterns and color choices of tradtional african art.

Patrick Swayze Fighting Pancreatic Cancer
Topic: Arts 9:34 pm EST, Mar  5, 2008

"Actor Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is currently undergoing treatment," a rep for the actor said in a statement released on Wednesday. "Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects. The outpouring of support and concern he has already received from the public is deeply appreciated by Patrick and his family."

According to the statement, Swayze's physician Dr. George Fisher said, "Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far. All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic."

Despite the encouraging words from Dr. Fisher, oncologist Maurice Berkowitz told Access Hollywood the outlook for patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer is generally not good.

Warning! Warning! Robots rule planet
Topic: Arts 10:57 pm EDT, Oct 14, 2007

Featuring more than 100 pieces by local and national artists, "When Robots Ruled the Earth" is the debut show for the Gallery at East Atlanta Tattoo, a new space next door to the long-standing skin art shop. From comedic paintings inspired by "The Jetsons" to 3-D pieces that literally burst from their frames and morph into sculptures, the 'bots range from friendly to menacing.

While robots are the theme in all the works, the interpretations of that theme are as different as C-3PO and R2-D2. Works of pop surrealism by artists such as Samuel Parker and Shane Morton take a retro approach, with giant machines wreaking havoc on puny humans. Others, such as Trish Chenard's series of classic Catholic images and Eric Joyner's "Smackdown," with Rock'em Sock'em Robots in the roles of Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston, put robots into divinely recognizable human roles.

• THE 411: "When Robots Ruled the Earth." Free. 5-8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays or by appointment through Oct. 20. The Gallery at East Atlanta Tattoo, 1188-B Glenwood Ave., East Atlanta. 404-226-2279,

Totally there :)

mixmedium was created in 2002 as an online art magazine. Using the internet to exhibit the works of artists who use a variety of mediums, mixmedium includes the photography, music, films, print designs, and other artwork created by both emerging and well established artists. The goal of mixmedium is to inspire creative diversity, expand artistic knowledge, and create an active network among artists and those who appreciate art.

mixmedium strongly encourages viewers of the site to interact with the content, contribute media and artwork, and submit film and music reviews. The more media and artwork that is contributed, the better this site will be.

Interesting site. Seems to still be working on growth.

Rebuilding The Wall

You have to hit the bottom of the well, where you feel as if you have nothing

Drowning in the depths of agony

You must reach point where you have cried so much that there is no physical way to weep anymore

When it seems you can no longer feel anything

You have hurt so much that your whole body is numb

There comes a point where your body is an empty shell hollowed out by grief.....

Let the cycle take its course

Pretend that it isn’t happening

Blame someone or something

Promise you can do it differently if given the chance

Go through the what ifs feeling desperately alone

Make the choice to move forward

Find something still beautiful in the world that is worth the effort

Place the first brick and keep building

Let go of everything and everyone that is holding you under water

Assure yourself that you can make it on your own

Nothing can take away your choice to go on

Build it bigger, stronger and taller this time

Make it harder for someone to knock it down again and throw you into the well

E.T. returns to the big screen

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Thursday, June 28 at dusk in Atlanta's Piedmont Park for "Screen on the Green" 2007

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) is more than a movie – it is one of those rare cinematic occurrences that strikes at exactly the right time and place, revealing the cultural zeitgeist of the moment. The film sparked an immediate pop culture frenzy when it was released in 1982; it turned the precocious, young Drew Barrymore into a household name, led to a 65% increase in the sale of Reese’s Pieces and had kids, and even adults, everywhere saying, “E.T. phone home.” The movie grossed $700 million worldwide, making it the top-grossing movie of the 1980s and the 4th highest U.S. box office of all time. Variety called E.T. “the best Disney movie Walt Disney never made.” And Rolling Stone raved that Steven Spielberg was “the most successful movie director in Hollywood, America, the Occident, the planet Earth, the solar system and the galaxy.” But E.T. was never intended to be such a phenomenon.

If you are in or near Atlanta and feel like reliving a part of our childhood here's your chance to watch E.T. on the big screen all over again.
