I DREAMT IT WAS EARTH DAY. IS IT EARTH DAY?

...I also dreamt I was creating a magazine "for folks 25 and under". As if that were something we needed more of. In the dream we were thinking of changing the name from something I can't remember to Quarter.

So the 25-yr-old demographic's pretty much taken care of, obsessed over even. And, as boomers grow older, no doubt we'll be seeing more blogs and 'zines specifically for their age group. hmmm...'zines?

Ronni Bennett's already been blogging for the 'growing-older set' since august '03, first via her fotolog, then moving out and into her own blog +TimeGoesBy.net.

She recently wrote a spectacular post about the potential for Daylo.com to become "A Boon for Older Folks".

Ronni and I met when we were part of the small "start up" website cbsnews.com in '97... Our birthdays are 2 days apart and we shared an Ariesness. Which means what? We both like birthdays? (...I wonder if that's going to become less and less true. We've each had about 8 since then.) Well, clearly she's handling her accumulating years with grace and energy. Not sure about me and mine, yet.

To read Time Goes By, subtitled "What it's really like to get older", is to hear from a voice not typically heard in the blogosphere. Of course her readership is not a sparse demographic... and she's certainly not alone in blogging from (but not just for) the 'growing older' perspective, but Time Goes By rises beyond anything typical, thanks to Ronni's unique personal storytelling, which is interesting even beyond the tales of working in radio and TV alongside John and Yoko, Barbara Walters, Walter Kronkite...
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

In addition to her long list of links to "OLDER BLOGGERS" (over 50 links there), Ronnie recently linked to fellow 'growing older' blogger +Old Horsetail Snake, who posts from his nursing home in Salem, Oregon. As someone who's 90+ year old grandmother recently just moved into a nursing home, I'm intrigued to hear from someone on the inside. He has good style... a slight bit cranky, with a vital sense of humor. And funny drawings.

"Imagine how wonderful it would be to spend a day by the pool right here in Williamsburg/Greenpoint" ...Help the McCarren Park Conservancy get the pool on the National Historic Register and renovate the pool instead of tearing it down for a soccer field.

THIS IS NO GAG

+ Chairman Scott Thomas on McCain-Feingold Act & Bloggers (look for the 'Chairman Scott Thomas on McCain-Feingold Act...Bloggers' link. Real Video.)
FEC Chairman Scott Thomas discusses a new Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, applying McCain-Feingold campaign finance rules to political blogs. The panel, composed of bloggers and Internet researchers, is sponsored by the Advisory Committee to the Congressional Internet Caucus. 3/31/2005: WASHINGTON, DC: 1 hr. 25 min.: C-SPAN

Basically, Congress is willing and wanting to accept input from bloggers (I think you will need to watch the full hour possibly to find out where your input can be put-in. But fear-not, it's quite interesting.). Note: the only blogger present at the panel discussion was the man behind 'redstate.org'.

Staff Exchange Program: DAYLO
"This is cool. I have been thinking for a long-time about managing staff and volunteers in a "network" context. How do we know which staff are available? What skills they have to offer the network and what kind of reputation those volunteers/staff have?"—Network-CentricAdvocacy.net

A good idea for an adaptation of the social networking software of daylo. We like it.

Monday, March 28 2:48 PM. Should be working... hard time adjusting to 12-hour time-change. Still.
ART. MUSIC. FASHION. FASHIONABLE ARTISTIC MUSIC. (AND PERSONAL TRAVEL SHOPPING).

I was just thinking I needed to learn to paint again so I could paint my photographs in addition to printing them. Nice to feel additionally attached to the image. The first printing of images I did for a show were sent wirelessly from C's laptop to an Epson 2200 sitting in the next room. No physical connection, even!
While plotting learning to paint, I came upon a book of paintings by Robert Bechtle, who I'd previously never heard of... but now want to paint like.
Comparisons are never totally right, and may annoy, but his paintings are a bit of Eggelston meets Hopper meets Ralph Goings? Anyway, I need to learn to paint. Where do I go? California? Chicago? (K,J: any advice here?)

HOME FROM SOUTH EAST ASIA IN BODY, IF NOT IN MIND


So many other things to be writing about, my trip to Laos, VietNam and Cambodia, namely... namely... blind masseuses, $1 pineapple smoothies, a crab pinched my toes, pho for breakfast, 1000 year old shiva shrines, Lao monks with dagger tattoos, Lao discotheques, 27 hours busrides...
but there are a few hundred photos to process, and new friends to email...
my post-trip follow-up to-do list looks something like this:
  • email Dong
  • email Kong
  • email Song
Meanwhile, until travel journals are edited, and photos are processed: a few unrelated links:

+ GIANT STEPS: Flash movie. John Coltrane... animated, constructed, dismantled, dissipated in graphic glory. not a beat missed...

Did you get a chance to read Jonathan Lethem's Personal History, The Beards peice in the New Yorker last month? Maybe try and find it. Then read it. And try to do so without falling a little bit in love with the author. Compose letters in your head to him which start "i'm not beautiful or clever but i think i might love you... so... let's never meet..."

Also try and also find I just managed to find the short story Screenwriter by Charles D'Ambrosio ~ as featured originally in the New Yorker, and then also published in The Best American Short Stories of 2004 edited by Lorrie Moore. Print out the story, read it on the train, or in the doctor's office waiting room. Smoulder in his writing.
