One of the last pictures I took yesterday - Aurora Australis - the southern lights - dancing with the constellation Orion. An amazing moment.

When I got nothing left to do, I like to read myself one of them critically thought essay to wake my brain cells. And one of them things I critically thought after the reading was, Almost everywhere in Europe this year, shit went down, things got broke and that dude was rioting, but not in Belgium (contrary to popular belief, started by a late night television host on CC. Damn you Jon Stewart).

I Know why. We haven't seen none of them Austerity Measures, because we ain't got no governing power. Actually we have one, its just dudes standing there like workmen. We call it Curent Affairs and though Belgium been threatened by a credit rating downgrade and some good old european finger wagging, the elected officials are till at the flea market haggling level of forming a government. Am I mad about it? Hell no, but I clearly foresee some austerity measures and the heavy shitstorm that comes with it. Unions might have toned down their demands, but they ain't gonna give in without a fight. I hope for none of that Hegelian Abstract Negativity.

For you +Alida Brandenburg, who was looking for a smoothie recipe.

Recipe For Prison Pruno
Jarvis Masters

Take ten peeled oranges,
Jarvis Masters, it is the judgment and sentence of this court,
one 8 oz. bowl of fruit cocktail,
that the charged information was true,
squeeze the fruit into a small plastic bag,
and the jury having previously, on said date,
and put the juice along with the mash inside,
found that the penalty shall be death,
add 16 oz. of water and seal the bag tightly.
and this Court having, on August 20, 1991,
Place the bag into your sink,
denied your motion for a new trial,
and heat it with hot running water for 15 minutes.
it is the order of this Court that you suffer death,
wrap towels around the bag to keep it warm for fermentation.
said penalty to be inflicted within the walls of San Quentin,
Stash the bag in your cell undisturbed for 48 hours.
at which place you shall be put to death,
When the time has elapsed,
in the manner prescribed by law,
add 40 to 60 cubes of white sugar,
the date later to be fixed by the Court in warrant of execution.
six teaspoons of ketchup,
You are remanded to the custody of the warden of San Quentin,
then heat again for 30 minutes,
to be held by him pending final
secure the bag as done before,
determination of your appeal.
then stash the bag undisturbed again for 72 hours.
It is so ordered.
Reheat daily for 15 minutes.
In witness whereof,
After 72 hours,
I have hereon set my hand as Judge of this Superior Court,
with a spoon, skim off the mash,
and I have caused the seal of this Court to be affixed thereto.
pour the remaining portion into two 18 oz. cups.
May God have mercy on your soul.

#BTLcritique
dear members of the photo-critique group and people with whom I have been engaging in thought provoking discussions, Google has emptied most of my circles. Could you please help me rebuild my profile by +ing this post, or does someone knows a quick tip to add a big number of followers in one shot?
Thank you all for the sharing and stuff, I'm looking forward to critique your works again.

They really need a groups mechanism on Google+... a bunch of college mates were completely turned off from joining this when they found out how many people they had to add to their circles one-by-one.

I wonder if it has ever been featured as the villain's lair in a movie.

great review of "Contagion". One of my all time favorite podcast. May induce laughter, listener discretion is advised on public transportation.

After watching Helvetica, I had a compulsive disorder where I would point at any sign that, I believe, was written in the famous typeface. Right now looking around my bedroom, I can point out three book covers, one shoebox, a train ticket and a fair amount of LPs that use the renowned font. After watching Gary's next film, Objectified, I tried to find those fancy Braun electrostatic speakers that were in Dieter Rams' living room (also watching him taking care of his bonzaï in his overly design house was very funny). Gary Hustwit design documentaries are eye-opening on a world that I often underestimated. Next up will be Urbanized, but living in the country, I guess that won't be important.
