I have not entered the War of Words as I were busy trying to update some photos and you have to be pretty well into the strengths of several weak points for the 9th April..
When it comes to creative outlets I am much more of a music guy than an art guy. This is because I have no manual artistic skill. I can not paint, draw, sculpt, or carve. I do not have the hands of a surgeon. I have always wanted to express myself visually through film. It started out as an obsession with movies and wanted to make them. I have tuned it down a little and I am concentrating on still photography. I now have the tools I need to pursue this (hyper link is working?) but I might have a guide to Europe via insultsunpunished in the form of P J O'Rourke's dumb enough study on freetime...

We drink napalm to get our hearts started in the morning. A rape and a mugging is our way of saying 'Cheerio.' Hell can't hold our sock-hops. We walk taller, talk louder, spit further, f*ck longer and buy more things than you know the names of . I'd rather be a junkie in a New York City jail than king, queen and jack of all you Europeans. We eat little countries like this for breakfast and shit them out before lunch...

Sometimes that happens ...
..but when small groups such as the recent scurmish do not want to speak English and most have no formal educationalists other than the religious nature in Iraq not even a mapped landscape...

a bucket load of this...
but Archer's had more luck in finding the super weapon ..
Having located the prototype of the Xindi superweapon, Archer and the crew manage to capture the weapon's creator, Degra, and launch into an elaborate scheme to dupe their prisoner into revealing the location of the final weapon under construction. With time running out before the Xindi discover Degra's disappearance, the entire crew play key roles in the massive charade which combines Archer's acting skills, Trip's faux alien shuttlecraft, Hoshi's decrypted data and Dr. Phlox's memory tampering, in order to trick the Xindi scientist into believing he and Archer are now allies and on the run after escaping a Xindi-Insectoid prison.

from timemachinego an article about an american writer this is your like sequence...
'Once, in the mid-fifties, on a whim, Lois took the train to New York to attend the World Science Fiction Convention and there she met a young writer by the name of Arthur C. Clarke. Clarke took a shine to Lois, and next time he was in Chicago he called her up. "He was at a pay phone," Lois recalls. "He said, 'Is there anyone in Chicago I should meet?'

Snuffed out by Paris Style. DUGGIE FIELDS is a painter of whom no one should take the slightest notice. In his hands paint is dead colour and drawing a thick insensitive, unvarying line. His work, as another critic has observed, is stylish - but to me that is a derogatory insult, suggesting empty nothings paraded with bravado. That he has had a measure of popular success is not surprising. He paints images that have immediate appeal to the homosexual mafia that is one of the least attractive sub-cultures of the art market, and trendy liberals feel compelled to bend over backwards to avoid seeming narrow-minded and illiberal. He has, moreover, the kind of personality that invites exploitation - to advertise his 1983 one-man show in Japan both the artist and his work were splashed all over the Tokyo Underground on hoardings and on television in a nationwide hype. Nostalgia. Recalling the horrors of Japanese occupation in Burma, Singapore, the Philippines and elsewhere in the Pacific, I quite see why the Nips gave him so enthusiastic a reception. His pictures must have filled them with nostalgia for the heady days when they could decapitate at whim any Anglo-Saxon prisoner or spike Filipino babies on their bayonets. Young Duggie Fields, a cult figure with the farrowings of King's Road and Carnaby Street, likes lopping of the limbs of his figures, slicing through their necks and skulls, and arranging in elegant patterns the stylised tears of blood that spring from these calamities. His images are not, however the horrors of war but of pornography. I have not been to New York since 1979, and I do not know if the atmosphere there now is the same as was a decade ago. I did not care for it. The art world then thought it amusing to chop fresh cannabis leaves into its salads and make cookies with the resin. It openly snorted cocaine and jabbed syringes into anyone foolish or dazed enough to share the experience. Worst of all, it gloated over what was called "snuff' pornography - that is extreme sexual sadism in which the victims die of beating, strangulation and ex-sanguination from the stumps of severed limbs. The films were, I hope, in some way faked, but they were horrifically real; in printed pornography they were supported by crude drawings in which the sadistic imagination could be specific to the last detail, and twice as foul. Duggie Fields' latest exhibition seems to me to reflect these horrors. If his imagination has arrived at his present set of images without the external stimulus of this kind of pornography, then the poor wretch is out of his mind. If, however, snuff pornography is the source of his stimulus (and he too was in America in the mid-seventies), then I have never seen more disgustingly deplorable pictures on the walls of any london gallery. Trash Were there some comment in the work the subjects might be acceptable, but there is nothing to suggest that Duggie Fields has any response other than an over-grown naughty boy's urge to out-rage. Ceorg Grosz and Otto Dix could use such images and make them work, eliciting from the spectator the anger and disgust that they themselves felt. Fields apparently feels nothing, and is happy to employ the flat primary colours and primitive outlines of American comics to popularise his fetishes. Trash comics and pornography are not his only sources. Throughout his working life he has made punning references to Dali, Miro, Leger and Fontana - "Miro, Miro on the Wall" is a title typical of his level of visual wit - but larding the horrors with borrowed surrealism is no camouflage for the paucity of his ideas and skills. It was with relief that I slipped into the Marlborough Gallery a hundred yards down the road, to see the early drawings of Lyonel Feininger ... Young Feininger makes young Fields look as appetising as a punk rocker

comic perspective was the google image search criteria but I am getting concerned reflective[s] reality lost horizon's and Rory's mindfull rumblings because some of The Blyth stuff is really quite sublimbinal but the extraction forgets the urgency of the image....

All we need now is a computer screen that can read small print and will differenciate the littlest detail in those high end camera shots that publicly appear on the net but because your screen resolution is bad you DON'T SEE IT all you SCC is what you thought you saw - blinding flashes? ring any bells!
But! and that is not all ~ if you don't have an up to date sound card or your sound is OFF that is about it then.... keep looking?

If you use quicken read this from Joy who's recently gone back to law school and probably uses the program extensively as she knows a bit more than most sufferers of the lack of small change..
she never fails to make quite good copy, I reserve my rights..

Its been rumoured for some time, but Google today finally confirmed it was planning to take on Microsoft's Hotmail and launch its own free webmail service.
Called Gmail, the service is about to enter its beta-testing phase, and is expected to be up and running later this year.
Bearing in mind what day it is, we took Google's claims that the service comes with 1GB of free storage with a big pinch of salt - but we're assured this isn't a wind-up.
The huge storage space is equivalent to 500,000 pages of e-mail and is more than 100 times what most other free webmail services offer.
Gmail will use the company's search technology, allowing subscribers to quickly find every email they've sent or received and will dispense with the need to delete unwanted messages.

Google also promise the service will be spam free.

So what's the catch? Well it appears subscribers will have to tolerate advertisements tailored to keywords in the emails they receive.
For example, if you receive an email from a friend about The Simpsons, ads plugging DVD's of Springfield's finest will appear at the bottom of the message.
One definite hoax perpetrated by Google today is a job advertisement on its site for a new lunar research centre set to open next year.
The ad says the company is looking for engineers for its new development arm called Google Copernicus Hosting Environment and Experiment in Search Engineering (G.C.H.E.E.S.E.).
It goes on to say the research centre will be carrying out experiments in high-density high-delivery hosting (HiDeHiDeHo) in a bid to bring information access to new heights of utility.
