INTERNA

I had the immense pleasure to spend some time with the talented and inspiring Rik Garrett (… and beat the shit out of him at table football).

Anyhow… I’m only here to say that I’m not back yet. I need to revise 5286 pages (sic!) for a media studies exam and I should really start preparing my 120-minute Goya & Callot presentation beginning of July. Please understand that I won’t be back before the 2nd week of July. There are loads of great blogs in the right sidebar that will surely entertain you in the meantime. Gracias.

Oh, and for all those readers who keep asking me about more nudie pics tasteful photographs for Flickr: I’m sorry to say that I simply don’t have the time to take pictures at the moment. Besides, I’m getting old and senile, wrinkly and grey-haired. I’m too old for this self-portrait thing. At least for the time being. Thanks for understanding this, you perverts.

PSYCHICK PET HERO OV THEE DAY

Jack the Cat

On June 4 a black bear wandered into a West Milford, New Jersey, back yard, was confronted by a 15-pound (7-kilogram) tabby cat … and fled up a neighbor’s tree. Hissing at the base of the tree, Jack the clawless cat kept the bear at bay for about 15 minutes, then ran him up another tree after an attempted escape.

Finally, Jack’s owner, Donna Dickey, called the cat inside, and the timorous trespasser disappeared back into the woods.

P.S.: I received one of K. Louise Judd’s prints the other day (‘They Tried to Cure Her Ills With Lady’s Slippers’), and what can I say… it’s breathtakingly beautiful and it almost looks like a painted original. I think all WurzelReaders™ need at least one of her artworks on their walls.

Frühlingstänzerin

by Suzanne on June 8th, 2006


© Darren Holmes: Ladies of the Sky – click to enlarge

In deinen Blicken wiegt sich der Frühling.
Rosengeflecht und ein Apfelzweig
Schaukeln ihn duftend einher.

Auf deiner Lippen Granat- und Marmorsitz
Streiten zehntausend Lerchen in süßem Tumult
Wähnend sie säßen im Morgenrot.

Wo deine lieblich errötenden Füße schreiten,
Schlägt aus dem Boden ein holder Schwall von Musik
Und erstürmt sich den Himmel.

Wippend dem zierlichen Schmetterling gleich
Schreitest du tanzerhobenen Arms
Wie über schwankendes Seil.

Wenn deine tastenden Brüste den Atem der Gärten verspüren,
Heben und senken sie sich, zugespitzt,
In verworrnen Gedanken.

Zierlich ist deine Seele, dem Rotkehlchen gleich,
Und so ängstlich, daß sie bei plötzlichem Wort
Flatternd im Käfig sich stößt.

(Frühlingstänzerin by Hugo Ball, 1886-1927)

A reader emailed me to say that the page is loading slower than normal.

I did add a few plug-in thingies to the sidebar over the past few days, however, for me, the page loaded at the same speed as always.

Has anyone else experienced difficulties accessing the site?

I can highly recommend Jessica‘s Awaken and Derek‘s Wingnut / Dirteater prints. They’re utterly adorable.
