::..:. Long Way Round .:..::
Topic: Arts 2:31 pm EST, Nov 25, 2004

This is the web site for a trip that actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman took around the world on motorcycles. It's a documentary miniseries, airing on Bravo in the US. They have also published a travelogue of their trip, available in bookstores.

20,000 insurgents in Iraq,
20,000 hardened insurgents,
take 1,000 down,
move to another town,
22,000 insurgents in Iraq.

"It is pretty clear that the coalition can win in Afghanistan and Iraq in one way or another, but it will be a long, hard slog."

So if Bush is following the One Way, what's that "another way", again?

I write computer programs to create graphic images.

With an algorithmic goal in mind, I manipulate the work by finely crafting the semantics of each program. Specific results are pursued, although occasionally surprising discoveries are made.

I believe all code is dead unless executing within the computer. For this reason I distribute the source code of my programs in modifiable form to encourage life and spread love. Opening one's code is a beneficial practice that both helps the community and grows the strength of the programmer.

Visionary Anatomies
Topic: Arts 10:30 am EDT, Oct  2, 2004

Visionary Anatomies contains the work of contemporary artists who use medical images and concepts to express aesthetic, social and cultural ideas. Despite ideas of separation between "unbiased" technological representations and "biased" artistic interpretation, some artists and scientists continue a dialogue and discover powerful metaphors and insights in each other's work.

In art, as in biology and medicine, anatomic representation can be a point of departure rather than an endpoint. The anatomic form becomes more than an illustration of living tissue; it reveals an intersection of life and imagination and provokes us to think anew about who we are and of what we are made.

The works draw from ancient anatomy and from modern imaging technology. Individually fascinating, they are yet more powerful as a collection, demanding repeatedly that we take a fresh look at ourselves, our inner being, and our place in the world.

Avenue Q
Topic: Arts 10:32 pm EDT, Oct  1, 2004

The inspired brainchild of the songwriters Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, this canny toy chest of a musical takes its stylistic cues from "Sesame Street," from its cheery urban set to its singing puppets of assorted colors and dispositions. And in doing so it becomes the first mainstream musical since "Rent" to coo with such seductive directness to theatergoers on the fair side of 40 in their own language, in which irony is less a mind-set than a loosely worn style. Directed by Jason Moore, with a book by Jeff Whitty, the show applies the coaxing, learning-is-fun attitude of children's educational television to the R-rated situations of postcollegiate life in the big city. Featuring a pitch-perfect ensemble of live performers and oversize hand puppets, "Avenue Q" is to "Sesame Street" what Mel Brooks's "Producers" is to vintage Broadway musicals: a connoisseur's tribute to what it only seems to send up.

The Art of War
Topic: Arts 2:37 pm EDT, Jun 12, 2004

Generals and presidents approach war as a vast struggle. But war, at its most achingly real, happens not to armies, but to individuals.

Nicholas Kristof shares the best of war poetry from his readers. I don't often read poetry, but these poems are heartfelt.

I stood, dumb as a cow, and watched two choppers
Collide like fists and spin across the sky.

My heart swells in my chest and while I laugh,
I feel fear, smell a faint stench of insanity.

I beg you, as you begged me,
Tell me what I can do
To make you forget
That my people never remember.
