State Street - an Angel of a Book

The poem in this book is as beautiful as the cover. The author brings us along in her life post-Katrina. You will feel like you stood by her side or in her head after reading it.


Watch how you use the word NAZI

The term Nazi is thrown around like a pink play thing these days; "Soup Nazi", "Obama-Nazi." As time passes we are forgetting the real meaning of that term. This documentary, Night and Fog, is a wide-eyed reminder of what Nazi really means. It is also a provocation that warns of the half sleeping monster that lies in wait among us all.

I have not been to the Holocaust Museum in DC. Much of this information was new to me. Shame be onto the Holocaust deniers.

These are some great photographs and photographers. They are finding art in the everyday we all overlook or run from in the urban landscape. Inspiring.

Artist Dies for his Art

WARNING: This video is very disturbing and contains scenes of violence, death, and sexuality.

The above movie trailer is for the documentary La Vida Loca made by Christian Poveda. It was made by a french documentary artist who was killed on September 4th, 2009, while working on his gang related documentary project in Tonacatepeque, a rural region north of the capital of El Salvador. He was shot in the head.

I hope you will pause a moment in your busy life to pay respect for this brave artist who gave his life to shed light on the human disaster of poverty and gang related violence.
