They Hunt for Exiled Stars – Pad Thai & Ski Lift

February 23rd, 2013

They write a long conceptual poem based on Christian Bök’s tweets

Suicide Pact you first

They sell you words
They interview the “totalitarian Buddhist” who has built “Magnasanti”
They create visual poetry by permuting four dark triangles
They build a fractal pyramid
They review “How to Write” by derek beaulieu
They design an online toy that lets you write prose-poems automatically in the style of a TED Talk (More Christian Bök’s tweets)

The True History of Pad Thai –

It’s the noodle that’s the most Thai, and at the same time, the least. Before the 1940s, Pad Thai didn’t exist as a common dish. Its birth and popularity came out of the nationalist campaign of Field Marshal Plaek Pibulsongkram, one of the revolutionary figures who in 1932 pushed Thailand out of an absolute monarchy and into a Game of Thrones-style democracy, where coups and counter-coups have become the norm.It’s the noodle that’s the most Thai, and at the same time, the least.

  • Update: Hirokazu Koreeda’s new film is called Air Doll or Love will Tear us Apart via (Globus Film Series)

    His 2009 film, Air Doll, examines loneliness through the eyes of a blow-up doll come to life. Bae Doona stars as Nozomi, a plastic sex toy owned by Hideo (Itsuji Itao), a restaurant worker who treats her like his wife, telling her about his day, sitting with her at the dinner table, and making love to her at night. But suddenly, one morning, Nozomi achieves consciousness, discovering that she has a heart, and she puts on her French maid costume and goes out into the world, learning about life by wandering through the streets and working in a video store, always returning home before Hideo and pretending to still be the doll.

  • A portrait Mark&Velasquez of Philip IV by Velázquez and Mark Z. (Photo collage by Toni Dalton)

    Two Illusionists by John Haber

    The portrait of Philip IV of Spain, one of at least nine by Diego Velázquez, anchored Velázquez in New York museums here a decade ago. Now one can appreciate the distinctions between Philip’s red hair, red coat, and warm shadows on the wall—or the silvery embroidery, an illusion created entirely by dabs of white.
