Not Here michaelwrites

remembering yesterday
and the decades that led up
or narrowed down to it
anticipating breakfast a
shower and the rest of the day
my life coming into existence
in this moment in between
I am not here do not exist
sucked empty by demon time
timing the nonexistent now
gone before you heard it
telling yourself here I am

365 Challenge: Day 251 Bounce This Is My Truth Now

Bounce: (of an object, especially a ball) move quickly up, back, or away from a surface after hitting it; rebound (once or repeatedly)

bounce

Every once in a while, when I wake up, I have little to no energy or clever ideas for the 365 Daily Challenge. Today is one of those days where I know it would be better to just put out a brief message rather than spend an hour coming up with a really strong one. Just bounce with it for me, will ya? Lately, my mind feels like all it does it bounce from one activity to the next, which is a good thing in many ways. The days go by quickly and I see a lot accomplished during that time. We all feel like that on occasion, so Im glad to be in great company with all of you.

I talked about potential words with two friends today (Roda & Noriko), who both helped provide some ideas and/or conversation that generated a few good options. In the end, most of them required more thought before I could truly post anything valuable. Instead, I looked up images of things bouncing all around to amuse myself and thats when I decided todays word would be bounce. We all need those moments of downtime, dont we? When we do something silly like play with a bouncing ball or jump up and down just for the fun of it. I think Ive figured out what I need to do at the gym later on that said, todays only potentially interesting piece of advice/humor/inspiration is that so...

Painting by the last Ottoman Caliph, Abdlmejid.

Art exhibition under attack

As part of the Istanbul Biennal, several paintings of the last Ottoman Caliph Abdlmejid
have been on display. He made the nude picture when he was 31 years old, before he became Caliph. The exhibition has been disturbed by a group of five people, who claimed it was disrespect to Caliphate and the Ottoman past as well as to Islam. The exhibition continues despite the threats.

A Common Ground Against Fascism

Mr Ihsan Eliak, a leading democratic theologian who is among the anticapitalist Muslims in Turkey, was attacked by Islamofascists at Kayseri Book Fair in late October. He held the ruling AK Party responsible for the attack. Mr Eliak took part in the democratic-environmentalist Gezi protests in 2013. Having read his constructive interpretation of the Quran, I admire his recent courageous comment that If this (ISIS and other violent and oppressive versions) is Islam, then I am atheist against it.

Faith Hunter, who is supposed to be planning her wedding, instead finds herself distracted by the town scrapbook she was commissioned to create.  Eden's oldest mystery, the founding family's exodus nearly a hundred years ago, remains unsolved.

A search through the family's abandoned mansion leads to the uncovering of bones on that very property.  And then ex-boyfriend Steve Davis announces a surprise heir has staked a claim.

How can Faith not be distracted?  Now she's determined to dig up the truth left behind.

Because scrappers are multi-taskers extraordinaire, Faith can't say no when family friend Wyatt Buford asks her to look into his deadbeat father's disappearing act and his connection to the murder.

Her quest for answers unearths secrets past and present that some would prefer stay buried at any cost.  Faith's resolve to present the facts and nothing but about Eden's history could lead to her own future being cut short.


Faith Hunter, co-owner of Scrap This scrapbooking store (along with her two grandmothers) is preparing for her wedding to homicide Detective Ted Roget.  She's also working on a town scrapbook, so has been busy.  When one of her employees, Sierra Brodart, asks Faith if she can stop by her mother-in-law's home and pick up a box that might be useful to the project, Faith reluctantly agrees.

But while there, Georgia Brodart tells Faith that her late husband Edward was murdered, because he knew that Georgia was related to the Evertons and had a diary for proof.  Faith at first believes she might just be having delusions, but when Georgia's son Hank shows up - Sierra's husband - and becomes angry that Faith is even there, she begins to wonder.

Meanwhile, the Buford brothers, Wayne and Wyatt, are renovating the Everton home for the town Historical Society.  But while Faith is there to pick up items that might be useful to her project, one of the...

The Wholesome Yet Filthy Comedy of Katya and Trixie The Paris Review

Katya Zamolodchikova and Trixie Mattel.

Because we havent figured out how to actually solve the various things happening in our country, for now were relying pretty heavily on humor. Contemporary political humor has many forms, but its the takedowns that get far and way the most attention. This has created an odd climate in which people assume that for comedy to have any political or cultural value it has to be mean. A lot of comedians fall back on the assumption that the shortest path to funny is through picking the lowest-hanging target. But Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova, a pair of much-beloved drag queens whose show premiered on November 15 on Viceland, have found a way of landing jokes without aiming at anything at all. Theyre able to show, consistently, that being wholesome is not mutually exclusive with being absolutely fucking filthy, and that a firm grasp of ones own brand doesnt mean acting like an asshole. Earlier this month, I sat down to talk with them.

KATYA: Yeah, I dont, Im not like a very good actor.

TRIXIE: Me neither, bitch! Im not good at anything! I can do, like, two voices. We do the white-girl voice

KATYA [white-girl voice]: Im like, so excited to be here, so grateful

Katya and Trixie met on season 7 of RuPauls Drag Race, where they both became fan favorites. They then went on to host an award-losing YouTube show, UNHhhh, and were later cast on RuPauls Drag Race All Stars 2 (Katya) and the upcoming All Stars 3 (Trixie). Their new cable show has the potential to introduce their brand of humor to an entirely new demographic of viewers and to upend the franchise of white men talking over each other on TV. Though bigger and shinier than their original web series,...

Contributor Picks: Doomed Bohemians and Death Masks The Paris Review

In place of our staff picks this week, weve asked six contributors from our Fall issue to write about what theyre reading, watching, listening to, and enjoying. 

Still from Personal Shopper.

In his films, Olivier Assayas often makes use of reflective surfaces: glass walls, windows, mirrors, screens, Hollywood stars. His distinctive recipe seems to be mixing them with dark, strange themes that enter his scripts obliquely. So if you start watching Personal Shopper expecting a satire on personal shoppers, you will be confused and disappointed. Better to expect a peculiar ghost story. Even better, prepare yourself by watching some of his back catalogue: Irma Vep, Late August Early September, The Clouds of Sils Maria. I couldnt decide if the final scene was a botched job or a masterpiece, but the choice of Anna Hausswolffs haunting Losing Track of Time on the soundtrack was certainly inspired. Also: one of the best portrayals of ghosts in cinema I have seen in a while. Isabella Hammad 

I have been telling everyone I know not to miss the wonderful new French documentary Faces Places, a collaboration by filmmaker Agns Varda and the photographer and street artist known as JR. (He drew international attention recently when he installed a gigantic portrait of a Mexican toddler who appears to be looking over the border fence between California and the Mexican city of Tecate.) Having agreed a couple of years ago to work on a project together, Varda and JR hit the road in JRs truck, which is equipped with a photo booth and a printer. They stop in several small French towns where they talk with various inhabitants, usually about the work that the locals do, and invite some to have their...

Narcissism and Pleasure: An Interview with Yvonne Rainer The Paris Review

Yvonne Rainer, still from Privilege, 1990, 16mm, 103 minutes. Yvonne Rainer. Courtesy of Video Data Bank, www.vdb.org, School of Chicago.

The following is excerpted from Interviews on Art, a collection of more than sixty interviews by Robert Storr with contemporary artists. Yvonne Rainer is a dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker who has been recognized as one of the leading conceptual artists of the past fifty years. She emerged in the 1960s as a pioneer of the Judson Dance Theater movement, an avant-garde performance style that blended elements of dance and visual art, and later turned to experimental film. This previously unpublished conversation was conducted on April 9, 2009, at the College of Fine Arts, School of Visual Arts, at Boston University. 

INTERVIEWER

Let me begin by saying that it is a special pleasure to enter into this conversation. Yvonne and I have known each other over quite a long time. We first met in the early 1980sin effect, part of the protracted aftermath of the 1970swhich was a very different time from now. What weve gone through lately, and are about to go through with the onset of recession resembles the 1970s more so than the boom times of the 1980s and nineties: an art world where the terms of making art takes place against a very unsettled and uncertain background. Considering that we are about to speak in front of a predominantly student audience, I would like to begin by saying that Ive been struck by the way that for the past twenty years or so, people have talked a great deal about careers as if there was some kind of scripted narrative or a scripted scenario for how one begins in one place and ends up in another ideal place. But it seems to me that art has always been much more about working, than about careers and about the specific work that one chooses. Since then you have done many things. Perhaps our conversation might start with the fact of just this variety of paths forward: how you have chosen to work in this way and chosen to work in that way and how have patterns developed rather than how those were patterns foretold or planned.

The Insomniacs Dream Diary: Part Five The Paris Review

Copyright Ellis Rosen

This week, well be running a series of dreams from the forthcoming Insomniac Dreams: Experiments with Time. For nearly three months in 1964, Nabokov recorded his dreams upon waking, as a way of testing J. W. Dunnes theory that dreams offered not only fragments of past impressions, but also a proleptic view of an event to come. In other words, that dreams were a sort of reverse dj vu, a way of subconsciously working through not only the past but the future. 

In this fifth installment, Nabokov wakes from an erotic dream to bloody sheets.

Dec. 13, 1964 8.30 am                                                                                                            50.

Skipped four nights

(Did not take down the banal dreams I had lately).

Intensely erotic dream. Blood on sheet.

End of dream: my sister O.,[1] strangely young and languorous. Then V. tells me I must not forget to go to the oculist. I find his street but cannot remember the house number. Am agonizingly searching in the telephone book but do not recall his name and, moreover, do not know how to dial the vague number I have in mindsomething ending in 492. Then stand near a window, sighing, half-seeing view, brooding over the possible consequence of incest. 

This reminds the Nabokov readerbut not Nabokovof a critical episode at the end of his 1941 novel, The Real Life of Sebastian Knight, with its nightmarishly urgent steeple-chase in pursuit of the narrators half-brother: I went to the telephone. < . . . > I thumbed the soft greasy book, looking for Dr Starovs number < . . . > ah, there it was: Jasmin 6193. < . . . > I performed some dreadful manipulations and forgot the number in the middle, and struggled again with the book, and re-dialed, and listened for a while to an ominous buzzing. < . . . > My nerves were on edge (LOA, 153).

Narco-a-Lago: Donald Trump Made Millions from Panama Development Used to Launder Drug Money The Sparrow Project

President Donald Trump has made millions from selling his name to a Panama development used to launder money from Latin American drug cartels, a Global Witness investigation reveals today.

After licensing his name to the Trump Ocean Club in 2006, Trump appears to have turned a blind eye to the source of the buyers funds and the background of some of the individual brokers (1). The investigation, Narco-a-Lago: Money Laundering at the Trump Ocean Club, Panama provides powerful evidence that profits from Colombian cartels narcotics trafficking were laundered through the Trump Ocean Club. Trump was one of the beneficiaries, since he received a cut of all sales. Trumps Presidential disclosures show he was still making money from a management contract for the Trump Ocean Club when he took office in 2017.

This must be investigated. Donald Trump has made millions from a project used by Latin American drug cartels to launder money. The warning signs were there for a responsible businessperson, but it seems Trump didnt want to know, said Eryn Schornick, Senior Policy Advisor at Global Witness.

The Trump Ocean Club in Panama was one of Trumps most lucrative licensing deals: initial projections indicate that he was set to make $75.4 million by 2010. Sources close to the development described it as Ivankas baby, and confirmed that Trumps daughter was in overall charge of the licensing venture for the Trump Organization.

Shoptalk: Major Brands Blacklisting Media is Detrimental to Publishers Editor & Publisher

Shoptalk

Blacklisting all news sites is detrimental to the duties of the local press: to serve the public without fear or favor. Local news is a business, yes. It also is a mission, and a public good. Informing and engaging the citizens of the United States was so hallowed by our founding fathers that the rights extended to it came first, before all other protections. By blacklisting certain media sites, media buyers are essentially stifling those news sites freedom of speech.

Yet this is precisely the notion raised in a recent Digiday article, Brands are now blacklisting mainstream news sites, including Fox News. Whether widespread or not, lumping all news into the same bucket as, say, the hundreds of fake-news sites being run out of wired shipping containers by either hostile countries or organized crime concernsor, if youre old-school, supermarket tabloidsis loathsome. Local media sites serve their communities. We live next door to our viewers and subscribers. We go to ballgames and churches and ale houses with our audience. We live here.

Advertisers who blacklist local media sites not only harm local media outlets ability to conduct business, they also harm their ability to get positive brand exposure among millions of consumers in Middle America. Studies show that consumers trust their local news more so than they do national news sources or the general internet population as a whole. A 2016 Gallup poll found that 62 percent of respondents trust local news media more than national, whereas only 38 percent trust national news sources more. Further, a comprehensive analysis of consumer behavior conducted by marketing analytics company Jumpshot found that these local news websites are as much as six times more likely than the general web population to reach engaged consumers in the retail, automotive, real estate and travel spaces.

We hear a lot from agencies wanting verification of viewability, human and third-party verification and raw impact/engagement metrics from ads that run on our sites. So it...
