From Dagie Brundert

"Ode an Juni / Ode to June 2 ... is online! 30 minutes long super 8!!
Every year I wait 11 months for my very beloved month – June. And once it's here it's gone. I want to hold fast to it. So I do what I can – film. Every day a little bit."

My favourite "New" equipment!

c 1953 Ansco Shur-Flash 120 6x9 camera and matching Anscomatic bakelite developer tank and reel. I've made a replacement faceplate so that I can switch back and forth from the original fixed focus lens and pinhole photography. The first roll of film in this little unit turned out quite nice. I process all of my films and papers using a variety of Caffenol recipes.

     empiricus invadere
_ _ _ _ runs through my dream again 
Butting head and cape against reality
Robe stretched across drying stakes
to scrape away life's remains clean
I saw them once or twice as I grew
Romping across sage-grassed dunes
Breaking dotted landscape of steam
Mocked for caring by the one master
Masterful Death giver of life & time
runs away with his abducted brides
stolen from land for bone and hide
to feed soft-shirted men and swine
rent to quench industrial hunger
wasted stockpiles bleach behind
slowly melting under prairie snow

Great Googly Moogly...but is it Art?

Emotional Roller Coaster Ride of Life The slow clicking internally charged clockwork pulls my carriage awkwardly, invariably upward towards the ever closer precipice I must engage. Once the ride commences there is no redress. No chance to escape the approaching plunge into darkness. Fear is a word in which I no longer place any purchase. I have gazed directly into that most foul and evil place afore. Nearing first climax where my soul shall inevitably be tested my awareness increases by leaps and bounds threatening to spew out into the Grand Abyss. Lain out before my existence to feed the mocking cosmos. Unwilling to return me my past and plentiful riches. Fragments from a long shattered dream hang still in argent discontent. As feces I entered and shall re-engage, once found lacking. Broad lathering pools deep with the sorrow of nonexistence await my entering return to the glory of pestilence from which I was unwillingly launched. Nothing more than detritus hangs me onto the edges clinging. Returning me to that which I never wished initial escape. Twisting my resolve with sweet language hardly understood. Siren’s song enticing putrid inclusion with that most base. Seasons change faster than days now it seems with every pulse and ring of clanging inner thoughts which beat me down to nothingness. This was not my intended path promised so blithely unwinding. Firmament dissolves into blackness of naught stretched out below. Reaching forward to desperately grasp at life’s fleeting mirage. Tipping the balance dissenting to headlong orthogenetic decline. Surrender forbidden to me as final irretrievable mercy freely allowed all others before having followed this long suffering route to achieve.     James T. Randall, 2013.
