Saturday Morning Cartoons.

Fell into the web worm hole and ended up spending have the morning surfing through retro-sites. Did  you watch any of these shows on Saturday mornings? Some of them are specific to the East Coast but most were available nationwide.

The Banana Splits (the theme song has a few “theories” about it coming from Bob Marley’s Buffalo Soldier)
The Tom and Jerry, Grape Ape Show
Anything by Rankin and Bass
Underdog
Harlem Globetrotters
Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space
Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch
Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids
Speed Buggy
Land of the Lost
Valley of the Dinosaurs
SuperFriends
School House Rock (which I have on tape – all of them!!)
Soul Train
Creature Double Feature (WSBK from Boston)
Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (all things Kroft)
JabberJaw
The Scooby Doo/Dynamutt Hour
The Krofft Supershow (Electra Woman and Dynagirl, The Lost Saucer)
Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels
Kukla, Fran and Ollie (I had a Kukla marionette)

I can’t be the only person who remembers the segments between Saturday morning cartoons in the 70s where this character in massive cowboy boots talked about healthy snack ideas – I hanker for a hunk of cheese!!

Why I Love the Internet – Reason Number #396

Hey Crackhead Yes, you.  On Wednesday morning I emerged from my girlfriend’s building by U.N. Plaza to find that you had sawed the tops off both the sparkplugs on my motorcycle. Thursday I had it towed to the shop ($45) where they replaced the sparkplugs and the boots ($50 including labor). They explained to me that “people” – I use the term loosely here – like you break off the tops of spark plugs and use the porcelain tubes to smoke crack. As an engineer and former MacGyver fan, in a way I think this is kind of cool. But then I remember that I just paid $100 for YOUR crackpipes, and I get angry again.

YOU ARE A CRACKHEAD. WHY DON’T YOU OWN A CRACKPIPE?

I am an engineer. Do you ever see me shaking down bums in the Loin for a calculator and sliderule? No, you don’t. Because engineering is the main thing I do, I went and bought myself a calculator. The main thing you do is crack. How do you get by without a crackpipe? The other crackheads must clown on you non-stop

Journalling For Lazy People

Today was really great. I got out of bed really late because my alarm clock has broken and I cannot afford a new one at the moment.

I feel unusual because my antidepressants are making me hairy. Last night I had to shave my entire body. Apparently, the lice that I caught from Alex’s friend are really hard to get rid of. I look quite strange with no hair and eyebrows. I’d post pictures, but my webcam is broken.

I want to tell the world that I love you all! You’re all so special to me! I am updating this journal for the first time in ages, because I’ve been in prison. Today, I got a digital camera! Yes! Here’s ten thousand photographs of my cat.

I want to say thanks to the academy for giving me this award.

I went to the doctor yesterday, and he said I have bipolar disorder, and a healthy imagination. You should all do this quiz! It’s amazingly accurate. You just put in your name and birthday, and it will tell you what job you’ll do when you grow up.

That’s enough for now. But I’ll leave you with this thought – sharing your life with strangers on the internet is the cheapest form of therapy available. Leave a comment and tell me I’m beautiful.

Work of Post-Art in the Age of Symbiotic Reproduction

A review of http://www.xgirl.com from The Market-O-Matic (1.0)

Michele Warther’s work investigates the nuances of pixels through the use of slow motion and close-ups which emphasize the symbiotic nature of digital media. Warther explores abstract and scenery as motifs to describe the idea of infinite artifice. Using loops, non-linear narratives, and slow-motion images as patterns, Warther creates meditative environments which suggest the expansion of time…

The flux creates, the empire accentuates. In the trans-gender artifice, art objects are deprecations of the iterations of the flux — a flux that uses the empire as a zeitgeist to deconstruct ideas, patterns, and emotions. With the synergy of the electronic environment, the flux is superseding a point where it will be free from the empire to transcend immersions into the contortions of the delphic artifice. Work of Post-Art in the Age of Symbiotic Reproduction contains 10 minimal flash engines (also referred to as “memes”) that enable the user to make cultural audio/visual compositions.

  • measuring chains, constructing realities
  • putting into place forms
  • a matrix of illusion and disillusion
  • a strange attracting force
  • so that a seduced reality will be able to spontaneously feed on it
