I don't dip, twerk or hop-hips.

Much can be said for todays young folk, they party with abandonment. The popularity of Hip-Hop culture rivals Don Cornelius and Soul Train. When I looked at the Afrofuture I didn't take off from George Clinton's Mothership. I was on the ship of Sun Ra but I came through Pharaoh Sanders, John and Alice Coltrane, Archie Shepp and Eddie Harris. It was a cusp of light between the worlds of the ancient and tomorrow. I kept wanting to lose it all but discipline and focus to construct what I wanted to…See More

filling my sketchbook

What am I up too....besides working at a grocer, filling another sketchbook. Been hooked on combining quonset huts with shipping containers. Living in big boxes will drive ya nuts so I added quonset huts to get an arched ceiling. Also wondering if all steel structures are a good thing. Plywood and foam sandwich panels, wood post and beam and adobe are much better materials organically, psychologically and economically. I also think about having curved walls so that rooms are not square, art…See More

Red Clay Copper and Gold

Between 1995-1999 I penned so many images. Now in the personal computer age I can scan and color and print them. I put vintage wine in a new glass.

I photographer friend sent me a video about a 1200mm camera lens. It looked like a mini bazooka, the case was carried by two persons. They compared it to a 50mm and a 400mm lens. I could stand on a mountain with my arms raised and you could count the hairs on my arm pits (eh, strike that image) from the valley below.As a young man I had an idea of an imaginary super hero Fotoman who could snap your picture with an Instamatic and beat you by folding, spindling and mutilating the paper photo.

You know Space is the Place

Posted on June 11, 2016 at 10:31am 1 Comment

Saturday morning, decided to do the laundry and dishes. Set up my tablet to listen to a video short on jazz. It was about Sun Ra, John Coltrane and Anthony Braxton and the times of their music. Then I listened to Kevin Spears (electronic Kilimba), Emmett Chapman (inventor of Chapman Stick), Kevin Keith (Chapmen Stick artist), Pharoah Sanders, Sonny Rollins and Eddie Harris (Jazz saxophonists). Sun Ra's theme was playing in the back of my mind, "Space is the Place, yeah yeah Space is the…

Thanks for the connection, Arnold! Have you lived most of your life in Lorain? If so, what, Lorain King, Lorain Sr., Lorain Catholic?  I'm a NEO guy myself. I went to Ravenna High east of you within the Akron district.

Arnold: I met Dr. McNair after his first shuttle mission at NC A&T. I spoke with him the month before Challenger. Yes, we've been significant to his country since stepping off the boat as "reluctant immigrants." Hope you enjoy today's posting.

Not too strange! I just got photosohp cs5 but I had been using GIMP for the last 2-3 years.  I love it and I'm more familiar with it.  Its better than Photoshop in a lot of ways although both have their strengths and weaknesses.  In fact, I still default to GIMP when I can't figure something out in Photoshop, or when I need a faster workflow.

 

Anyway, this is a response to the comment you left on the Graphic Designers and Artist Group wall :-D

If we write BSF with the aim of easing into wider Europhile audience acceptance than we might as well do like dozens of previous authors have done and tell of only white heroes and heroines. One Black author made quite a living telling tales of larger than life white heroes. BUT he neither glossed over nor appeased his main audiences' racial hangup. I can't think of his name at the moment. One of his films was a pre Lincoln southern scum starring Rex Harrison and Maureen O'Hara. The other was a B swashbuckler starring Ricardo Montobaln The Sarcen Blade.

Wynston Marsalis is old school now. I believe the old thing where we start a phase in pop culture, it's frowned upon by the melanin challenged and official Negroes, until large # of the pales' kids get into it, then some member is named the king of it. King of Jazz, King of Swing, King of Rock& Roll. That weirdling called himself the King of Pop but he bleached and chipped at his features to do so.

Always thought of Ohio as the 3C state when in school, Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. What about Dizzy Gillespie?

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
