finished 'the fountainhead'...

now what?

'thousands of years ago the first man discovered how to make fire. he was probably burned at the stake he had taught his brothers to light, but he left them a gift they had not conceived of, and he lifted darkness off the earth. throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision. the great creators, the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors, stood alone against the men of their time. every new thought was opposed. every new invention was denounced. but the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. they fought, they suffered, and they paid - but they won. ' 


go see it: black swan

finally! i've been waiting for this to come out since i first heard the buzz months ago. natalie portman. i dont even know what to say. i was convinced that she WAS an actual ballerina, not just another actress in a tutu. bravo. i would say 'best actress, in the bag" but it may be too 'weird' for any major awards or for mainstream audiences to appreciate it. rodarte's swan lake costumes were perfect. they were proper ballet costumes and stuck to the tradition and crafstmanship of tutu making but they were still SO rodarte. darren aronofsky got me again. go see it.

Queer Kids 2010 from M. Sharkey

love this song! "somebody to love me" by mark ronson featuring boy george and the business intl.


hot mess

i came upon these works by artist alicia ross from her current exhibit 'hot mess'. she finds photos online of some the 'tabloid's favorite females', does a phrenology study, and then does a cross-stitch of their portrait. the results are rather stunning. plus, i'm partial to an artist who uses 'unconventional' methods and pays an excruciating amount to detail. the exhibit is on view now through november 21 at black & white gallery in nyc. here are a few of my favorites...

for colored girls

i can't wait to see this! based on the play "for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf" by ntozake shange, directed by tyler perry. with thandie newton, anika noni rose, kerry washington, loretta devine, janet jackson (who looks bomb), whoopi goldberg, and...get ready for it...phylicia rashad (my head explodes).

enuf' said.

grover has always been my favorite


where to begin?

i've been thinking about starting a blog for some time now. mostly to share my thoughts and findings with friends. this may wind up only being for friends. this may wind up only being for me. we shall see. most of what i plan on posting will be random things i find on the internet that i think are worth mentioning. hence the title, for honorable mention. each day i find something new, whether it be an article, song, review, quote, odd site i 'stumble upon', i plan on sharing it with you. i may not be the most eloquent writer, but i imagine sometimes i may decide to share my point of view as well. this really has no set formula or rules, it's really just going to be...stuff.
