van gogh

October 22nd, 2009 Comments off

I have been very lucky in many aspects of my life. I have seen many of the treasured pieces of art that the world of men has created. In the summer of 2007 dave and i were able to go to Amsterdam and where we were able to get into the Van Gogh museum without waiting more than 5 minutes in line. Obviously you have to go at just the right time to manage this. It was before noon. Although the museum left me feeling over saturated and wanting too, as many of the great masterpieces were not available, – we both enjoyed the visit. I found this link this morning, it reminds me of why i have had in the past such a high regard for Vincent’s work – to have been the recipient of one of these letters must have been such a sweet experience: Vicent’s letters. Upon leaving the museum we walked across the boulevard and entered the Bols Museum – a museum dedicated to the history of Bols Distillery. The experience was enhanced by the smells, sights and sounds of a very modern museum and a great cocktail at the end House of Bols.

Found think link that allows you to explore all of Vincent’s letters.

COLLECTED STORIES – Paul Bowles:
If I Should Open My Mouth: page 251-252: “Saturday 1st– I don’t know why it is that ideas occur to me except when I lack the time to put them down or when it is literally impossible to do so, as for instance when I am seated in a dentist’s chair or surrounded by talking people at a dinner party, or even sound asleep, when often the best things come to light and are recognized as such by a critical part of my mind which is there watching, quiet capable of judging but utterly unable to command an awakening and a recording. Sick-bed and fever often bring up astonishing things, but again to what avail? A less ingenuous man than I might ask just why it should be of any importance to me that what goes on inside my mind should be put down. I am not a literary person and I never expect to be one, nor have I any intention of showing my notebooks to my friends. But that is a point not even discussed; long ago I determined to extreact from my mind whatever by-products it could furnish..

Newly translated Rainer Rilke writings: Paris Review

XII.
In books there are recorded the fortunes of those who were especially happy or unhappy, especially holy or hateful in their hearts. Then there are episodes from the life of each one: hopes and revelations, secrets and swoonings, ordered according to the alphabet of age and experience. They talk in those books either about girls in the country or girls in the city, or maybe about an only daughter taken out of one setting and placed into the other. They describe either a girl nothing happens to or a girl everything happens to, but they have a special predilection for cases where both take place, one after the other—this is felt to be particularly thrilling and educational and is now customary in novels and with anyone who deals with manufactured stories, events, and destinies.
—Translated from German by Damion Searls

Notes for Today 2009-10-06

changed htaccess so that ?w2wms doesn’t show up on RE and SB sites. now it looks nice and clean – http://doubleyourbusiness2009.com/RE/dijones

changed out the links on http://doubleyourbusiness2009.com/dijones so that they carry over the distributors info to the other sites that lead off the site – ie. http://interactivemediaworks.com/magazine/dijones will carry over the distributors info so that they get credit for signups on that site – that should mean that the telemarketers will carry over to? well it will carry over to the http://interactivemediaworks.com/magazine/feb but it doesn’t register the tms on the index page – need to fix that.

thinking about Boyd all day long – hope he is doing well. The lung operation sounds rather dreadful.

turned off everybody that is at day66 until Steve writes day67.

saw the chiropractor today – Buzz Edelburg Palm Springs Healing Center always makes me feel better. Shouldn’t wait so long between visits.

still trying to figure out recursive function – it has numbed my brain.
