tootie

I can't believe tootie won America's Next Top Model.
Or; I can believe tootie won America's Next Top Model and I am not surprised. Nor amused.
Saleisha? Where to start?
Totally fake and been in the business long enough to know how to act cute. Some of her scene seemed scripted. Like the big breakdown shooting the cover girl commercial in the final episode of cycle 9. She ad her little speech about wanting to win or something and Mr Jay and Mr Gay lap it up like little pussies licking up cat-nip.
What?
Chantal making it to the final was an easy shoe-in for tootie. That made her seem like the best candidate. Where's Heather? Or Jenah?
Man. Tyra. What a toddler.

Teen Horniness is not a crime. Deffo!
Sarah Michelle Prinze did a great job in Southland Tales. Just wish I could get my hands on her energy-drink! And maybe one of her porns......
My other favorite was Amy Poehler as Dream/Veronica Mung. So funny!

What really irked me was the animation. What? Just because Tarantino uses is with success doesn't mean that it will gel without thought and consideration. This just sucked.

My photo of Nils was used for an interview with smuglesning.no
It's from his concert at Blå last Monday when I was still in Oslo.
Now I'm in the city of brotherly love! Loving.

too much!!

dude, we went to the Guggenheim and all we got was a stinkin' cap.

But seriously. MOMA charges $20 and gets away with it. The goog has followed suit and charges $18 for normals and $15 for students. What's up with that? We couldn't be bothered to pay those hefty fines, so we split after taking in the view from the drain.

The house of Egypt


ooooh, the drama!, originally uploaded by thefuturistics.

I had the pleasure of experiencing the opening night of "Dear Cockettes" an exhibition for and about the Cockettes. Rumi Missabu, Miss Cockette, was there and performed two songs, Nils Bech sang Jimmy Somerville's "Coming" and House of Egypt performed. AMAZING>>>>>>>>>

I am coming! I am coming!
I am coming through!
Coming across the divide to you

In this moment of unity
feeling an ecstacy
to be here, to be now
At last I am free

Yes at last, at last
to be free of the past
and the future that beckons me

I am coming! I am coming!
Here I am!
Neither a woman, nor a man

We are joined, we are one
With the human face
We are joined, we are one
With the human face

I am on earth
And I am in outer space
I'm being born and I am dying

I am on earth
And I am in outer space
I'm being born and I am dying

I am coming! I am coming!
I am coming through!
Coming across the divide to you

In this moment of unity
feeling an ecstacy
to be here, to be now
At last I am free!

Yes at last, at last
to be free of the past
and the future that beckons me

Yes at last, at last
to be free of the past
and the future that beckons me

I am coming! I am coming!
Here I am!
Neither a woman, nor a man

Oh we are joined, we are one
with the human face
Oh we are joined, we are one
with the human face

At last I am free!
At last I am free!

I am on earth
And I am in outer space
I'm being born and I am dying

I am on earth
And I am in outer space
I'm being born, I am dying

At last I am free!
At last I am free!!!

Yes at last, at last, at last I'm free!
Yes at last, at last, at last I'm free

Only in my dreams

I had a dream about Andrea Fraser last night. It was really nice, we sorted things out and talked. Very Pleasant.

video

She sent me an e-mail a while ago that I didn't respond to. This means I broke some unspoken rules, but inspired by Witold Gombrowicz I felt liberated by acting childish and immature. Joy.
Frasergate has been on my mind since it happened 6 months ago. And apparently it needed a resolution. Which the dream provided. But, as Debbie Gibson says:

Now I see Im up to no good (no, no, no)
And I wanna start again
Cant remember when I felt good (baby)
No I cant remember when

No, only in my dreams
As real as it may seem
It was only in my dreams

Be Arthur. Please.



Fib: Bea Arthur is a transvestite.

Fact: Absolutely not. She is mistaken only because of her low voice and height. If anyone took the time to learning more about her, they would find out that she is and always will be quite the woman!














image, fact and fib from

a great resource for everything bea

and this is some information for people who are on Premarin. Don't.

Happy Halloween!!!!


alley_girls, originally uploaded by thefuturistics.

what could be more scary than four loveable geriatrics in Miami??
Exorcist-style??

Blanche: "Do you know what I hate doing most after a party?"
Rose: "Trying to find your underwear in the big pile?"

DOROTHY: Ma, how would you react if one of your kids was gay?
SOPHIA: I know you don't get many dates, but stick with what you know.
DOROTHY: Ma, I'm not gay, it was a question.
SOPHIA: To tell you the truth, Dorothy, if one of my kids was gay, I wouldn't love them one bit less. I'd wish them all the happiness in the world.
DOROTHY: That's because you're the greatest mother in the world, and I love you!
SOPHIA: Fine. Now shut your fat mouth so I can get some sleep!

BLANCHE: I don't understand lesbians, I mean, a man has so much more to offer, know what I mean?

BLANCHE: Whatcha doing Dorothy?
DOROTHY: Oh, I'm looking through my old yearbooks, it's sad to see how many of my old friends are gone...Frank, the star quarterback, heart attack, dead...
BLANCHE: Don't think of it that way, Dorothy, think of it as God telling Frank to "go deep."
DOROTHY: David...
BLANCHE: What happened to him?
DOROTHY: God told David to drive into a wall at 80 MPH.

Curate or die. Whatever.


curate2, originally uploaded by thefuturistics.

last night was the first of three discussions of the "Curate or Die" series. This was supposed to be the center and periphery debate. Hmmm, totally eurocentric and not really that peripheral. Charlotte Laubard, an independent curator from France who recently took over the CAPC in Bourdeaux, talked about the exhibition profile of the space and how she changed it. The huge church-like space was used to store goods that had been exchanged for slaves, but few exhibitions had taken into account the history of the space, except for the influential Traffic (1996), curated by Nicholas Bourriaud, and the equally important, Cities on the move (1997), curated by Hou Hanru and Hans Ulrich Obrist. Laubard talked about the lack of contact with the local community, which is usually always a problem since contemporary art is not usually meant for the masses. The shows since Laubard took over have been in collaboration with other curators, and have been all destablizing and shit.
Adam Budak from the Kunsthaus Graz, the blip-blop light machine, had so much technical trouble that he never managed to show an image of the building. I guess most people know the building, since the building is what has been touted at every single opportunity, but not showing it was just stupid. Budak has a background in theater, so a lot of the exhibitions are more staged than other, more 'neutral' exhibitions of contemporary art. This has also meant that exhibition design is extremely important for the Austrian space and it looks like a good example of an exhibition space that dares to go where no other space has gone before.
Chuz Martinez, who replaced Marta Gili on the panel (strikes......), was the one who considered the title of the meeting/presentation and suggested instead Research or Die as a more pressing matter. Martinez has an MA in curatorial studies from Bard College...The center for curatorial studies. Or: the periphery for curatorial studies? Nah. I just recognized her language as Bard speak. Fascinating.

ANYWAY, she has taken over the Kunstverein Frankfurt, but talked mostly about the Spain's birth as a democratic nation and discarding anything to do with Franco, which also meant that a new generation of curators were allowed to step up to the plate much earlier.

Markus Müller, the chair, patted everyone on the back and gave his spiel on the center and the periphery. So, Poland is the periphery? And Bordeaux? Whatever. Just admit that you will be presenting the work of three youngish curators that are dealing with an institution after being independent curators. And make sure that all the technical equpiment works and please time your speakers.

Curate or die seems to fall into the old-fashioned catalog of "the death of....." The death of curating seems impending, but it's just a call for discussion. Why the drama? Listen to some more Mary J Blige! Please!!!

Hex'em

The hunk on the left is dead. The hunk on the right is dead. 1983 was the year of the hunk, but look at them now!
Jon Erik shot himself, by accident, on set of Cover Up. The blanks in guns aren't that blank at all and pushed a piece of his skull into his brain. He starred alongside Joan Collins in the made-for-tv-movie Male Model, and in the time travel sci-fi series voyager. And he's been in heaven for a few decades. He would have been 50.
Hamilton was poised to be the new James Bond, but the producers chose to run w Timothy Dull-ton or Pierce Brosnan. Too bad. They should have made Hamilton Bond. And we would've had a blonde and openly gay James on the screen.

And not to forget the ladies. O'neil's sister is Paris Hilton's aunt.
LUCK! or the charm of Kathy Hilton. Miaow!

beautiful lights in a beautiful park

the slogan for gropiusstadt was light, air and, and...eh, something else beneficial to large groups of people lumped into cheap housing

cheap housing good enough for Christiane F and her mother. I didn't really see much of Christiane's world in Neukölln.....

The residency program offers artists a week in an apartment on the 8th floor. A week. That about says everything about the residency. Most of the works on show were dealing with the same issues of architecture, city-planning, utopian ideals, race, and so on, but only on the surface. Ideas aren't allowed to fester, so the works turn out similar and bland. Presentation sucked as well, but I guess you have to show to as much activity as possible to maintain support.

Beautiful park.
