Trans visibility pioneer Wendy/Walter Carlos was also a vanguard of electronic music production and it’s performance. I’m so glad they cared enough to always teach the audience about this developing and never before heard gebre of music. She kept it classic and mostly recorded classical pieces and Bach was her biggest hit. Their album, Switched On Bach was the highest selling classical record EVER!!! Go trans power!!!
A great book for your January lock-down-slow-down-extra-reading-time reading list. This one is a mind blower, let me just start with that. It’s about how the ancients had concepts of, fears of and encounters with robots, yes robots, exactly as we do today. Sounds crazy, right? Wrong. It’s history kids, and it’s fascinating. Adrienne Mayor writes so beautifully and makes it all so easy to understand. I’m giving this one five golden feathers for quality, five mushrooms for trippy-ness and factor of mind blown plus an extra plus for all the sex, drugs, power struggles and general drama involved. That’s our highest rating ever! I bought the hard cover because it’s better – FIND IT HERE. For those of you who can’t stop doing other things but still want to know about it, you can watch a youtube in the background wherein Adrienne gave insight into some of the things in her book – WATCH IT HERE.
Adrienne is my new hero, I mean my ancient hero, I mean not that she’s ancient, I mean I feel really old myself most of the time, I mean….nevermind. Its a great book. You should read it.

Over the past 30+ years Moller International and its predecessor companies have been working on the development of the technologies required for a new class of vehicles called volantors. The “Neuera” (pronounced “new era”) will be the first of these volantors to enter the market as a low-cost personal recreational or utility vehicle, capable of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL).
The multi-purpose Neuera can operate hundreds feet above any surface: land, water, sand, snow, swamp or grasslands. It can be used like other recreational vehicles, combining the capabilities of a boat, hovercraft, ATV, snowmobile, or other off-road vehicle. It has the hover and VTOL capabilities of a helicopter. Its ducted fans provide lift and propulsion without the danger of exposed rotor blades and high maintenance costs of helicopters. The vehicle uses state-of-the-art fly-by-wire computer technology to monitor, control, and maintain stability while simultaneously making the Neuera simple and easy to operate.
The Neuera’s performance, while similar to that of a light helicopter, is safer and potentially less expensive. Moller International is currently working to obtain cerification from the appropriate regulatory agencies prior to the sale of this vehicle to the public

They are now. Don Allcorn’s annual best Christmas Card ( should I have said, “holiday greeting?” Why is hard to be politically correct? Shouldn’t it be easier? – they need to make fairness easier than unfairness then I think it might have a chance.) has taken the printed posted greeting and raised it up to the level of fine art… all within one an easy to open envelope! Is he a magician? No silly, he’s an artist. He’s also an architect and my old college buddy and Susan’s brother! Duh! Don Allcorn people…remember that name. Anyway, when I easily opened the envelope the first thing I thought was, “That was so easy to open.” Next, I instantly recognized the contents as being fine art. ‘But how?” you are probably not asking yourself…Let me learn you now, a simple rule of identification should you one day wonder, “Is that art fine?”
If it’s in a frame, it’s fine art.
Very simple really. No frame? Not fine art….for the most part anyway…I mean there’s always Yoko Ono and making holes in the wind type of art stuff…but this little rule right here will keep what’s fine and what’s not pretty clear. BUT you must also remember that just because some art is not fine, that does not mean it is not good art….or bad art….or expensive as fuck art…or actually just garbage….that’s the rub.( no, Scott Covert’s paintings are the “rub”…riiiiiiight?????? – yuck yuck yuck) – NEVERMIND.
I like that textural fine art frame with that fine furniture in “Claridge Carbon” by Modernica seen in the photo above. That’s looking fine. I’m seeing a design rule here…
Fine is fine with Fine.
…honestly these marvelous ideas just come right out of my fingertips and onto the keys of this computer…they really do…they completely bypass my brain. Hmmm. Fascinating….yeah, I know! OK, here comes another one right now….
Art is a mystery. Don’t try to solve it. It’s not called Rubik’s Cubism, kids.
Take these wise words of easy to remember wisdom and use them! I give these things to you my twelve to fifteen readers.

Remember this? I don’t.
Hey, seriously though…Jesus is really mad at you. He’s kind of embarrassed to mention it though…
But he’s really really mad at you man. uh huh. You know why too. Dude, he was so mad at you, he couldn’t even concentrate and just kept looking down at you like really pathetically.
Im serious man. You better shoot him a text or something because he’s about to give up on you… for real.
Why don’t you get him a little birthday present or something? Some incense or like a nice gold chain or something…
Hell no to that! PLEASE SHARE THIS!

I was very serious about creating this image. I wanted to present J.C. with reverence and respect, with a personal truth but also with something very new. The same son of God, depicted in the same stylized and over-painted way we have seen him for generations yet with a new ethnicity. Hispanic is my update. I thought maybe it could sell in South America. My honest and uncensored depiction of Jesus would not be complete without a divine sensuality that heats a forbidden glowing layer of desire…like a glossy layer of clear love smeared over his lips, his watery eyes, over his whole beautiful face. The content of this art comes with your pondering stare – making it blurry in your mind as you gaze into it and beyond it’s few details. This is introspection, the individual’s unique third-eye point of view . I hoped to put all that on top of the half-man’s mortal masculinity that made this famous prophet, at least in this artist’s mind, quite hot.
This never happened. Polaroid imposters.
