James Howard Kunstler

James Howard Kunstler is great to listen to. I first saw him in the documentary "The End of Suburbia" Even if you think his ideas on peak oil are a little extreme, he's very funny to listen to.

He has a very good weekly podcast in which he talks for twenty minutes on a specific subject, you can find it here

here is his website

He's also a painter

New York Times

For the New York Times over the weekend. For a story about the Tony award nominees sharing a feel good quality, taking tough topics and giving them an easy to swallow/made for TV feel. I really wanted to avoid doing a visual that plays off all the usual Broadway cliches, curtains, lights, stages...etc....I took some of the writers words, and turned it into a soothing ointment.

Free Music : Chenard Walcker

I have been enjoying Chenard Walcker's music lately. Completely made from sampled/collaged music.Very high quality, and free!

Here is the link to music.

One of my favorites

Info from the site:

"Chenard Walcker is a French samplecore artist layering large slabs of pop music, obscure funk, soundtracks, etc. The site offers many albums worth of material as free downloads, as an anti-copyright stance. He also publishes the Free Sample Zone, which is all his material under several monikers...."

Now the sad news:

Chenard Walker a friend of the online music world, is slowly recovering from a diabetic coma. His brother reports that he is not physically suffering. He fell into the coma in September, and is now working on speech development and object differentiation( 2006 )
