My fellow Americans chocolate-colored or not will use the left-brain savior to cut out a little vacuum for my ‘smart ass’ one line poem:
eagerly awaiting the return of African matriarchy… no fat chicks
These people are quick to break up human relationships before they start—they know destruction and separation very well. And my smart-ass remarks are deliberately designed to provoke them—their non-conscious programming will kick in and they will autopilot away from me.
And the irony is that a creative hustler like the force behind bootybabeart.com will get more play from the pre-programmed ladies because they can ‘feel’ what he’s doing.
I can feel what he doing too. The image at left is the exact visualization of the successful North American African woman. She is trying to hold the spear of her dead male warrior and wear her ladies’ high heel shoes on her way to try to boost the stock price of Crispy Crème Donuts. We are so proud that Oprah Winfrey has lost weight—right? Well, she is still a fat chick to me.
We people need to remember our symbolism instead of “keeping it real” and obeying the laws of imperial materialism and idolatry. So when I speak my words am I literally condemning all people suffering from serious health problems? Or am I attacking the idolatry that makes wealthy captives overindulge themselves in all forms of individuated materialism—including overeating?
Why “put all the blame” on the women? Because matriarchy cannot happen without women and it cannot happen with “leaders” like Condoleezza Rice. Because Lady’s first. Lady now master… Lady now master… You call a woman African woman. No go ’gree. She go say “I be Lady.”
For those ladies who cannot stand to hear a male minister, listen to the female streaming audio of bell hooks in “Connecting Self and Community” here at kintespace.com. For those with a printer and reading light please try “Global African Healing with Sufia Giza” here at kintespace.com.
“Police State” Lyrics
Dead Prez should be among those celebrated for the literary level of their lyrics here at kintespace.com. But when the likes of Dave Chappelle features Dead Prez in the theme music of a television show for a major cable network I can tell they are doing just fine without us. However, let it be said by us that the lyrics to “Police State” kick ass! This shows time and time again that the fleeting presence of Deep Black Thought in popular music is deliberately effected and is no nigga accident.
3D Models Used for Film Studies
HollywoodCameraWork.us teaches a course on directing by using simple 3D models and professional voice over work. These production values are often used in forensic investigations in legal proceedings. It is yet another endorsement of 3D outside of child’s play.
Harry Lennix Outside of the Matrix
The Greenway Arts Alliance is another level beyond that poetry lounge I wrote about earlier.
DVD from the Underground
Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire is the thang. Work like this is beyond simply trying to shock ignorant but wealthy suburban housewives out of their complacency. Too bad I can’t rent this flick because my credit cards need a rest.
Open Source Math Software
They say that mathematics is not of the humanities. And we wonder why they can’t build pyramids. The Math Studio people introduce me to a world beyond the commercial demands of Wolfram Research.
I am not going to record what this piece of software is… The victims of this piece of crap know who they are and they need to know how to uninstall it.
Robert X. Cringely on the iPod
PBS.org had a few real liberals left and Robert X. Cringely may be some of one of them. His article “Dethroning King Gillette” is interesting. Not much liberal stuff in this article but he has shown something thoughtful in past pulpit sessions such as “Why We Send So Many Americans to Prison and Probably Shouldn’t”—that one will not get him chummy with a prison guard union.
“Poser3 to Bryce3D” by Lisa Casler is old but, hey, all of my 3D software is “old.” Lynescreations.com has another venerable article about low-end hair effects on 3D models. “Simple Brycean Roads” describes an interesting technique for making realistic mountain roads.
Using Flash for Native OS Apps
Screentime.com, it’s product, mProjector is like another Macromedia response to XAML. I leave a link to it here for ‘human’ interest.
So the engaging and dynamic Kristie LaTray tests my ability to sustain life by being friendly and handing over a plant. And when plants come to mind, I get fuzzy memories of art history classes—and I come up with stuff like Matisse trying to visualize the flora nature in human beings by painting women as or near flowers—women as trees. The image at left is not the symbolism I have in mind but perhaps, you, Blog reader, might see what I mean.
I believe this Matisse symbolism comes from an extremely unpopular interpretation of Judeo-Christian scripture: that people should act like plants instead of acting like animals. Why would any reasonable person want to act like this?
It’s just sitting there! It’s not moving! It makes no sense! Well, one sensation that may be striking your eyes is the perception of the color green. This color is a symbolic color. It represents renewal and growth. My year 2000 design diary for kintespace.com explores “Adinkra Green” and ‘strangely’ does not ignore the idea that people should act like plants instead of animals. Of course, this leads to the possibility of resembling a vegetable and me with a big pumpkin head makes Kristie laugh:
Kristie, I’m no Ray Kurzweil. I can’t guarantee that this plant will live forever sustained by nano-robots. I have watered it so far and intend to keep it in the sun.
I was forced to recast and redesign the part for The Mother. We just could not pull it off technically—‘we’ meaning DAZ Studio, Curious Labs Poser 4, Uzilite and me. None of this work is superior to a dedicated, human illustrator so we are trying to do the best we can under the circumstances. The Cool Coils hairstyle for The Mother was not working correctly (in DAZ Studio) so with the new mother we are using a short-afro texture map:
This shot was rendered in Poser and the non-polygonal hairstyle provides a lower memory footprint—this is now a concern because the project will probably go ahead in memory-intensive Poser instead of DAZ Studio. This design is based on the excellent work by Dalinise—a name evidently coming out of Germany. The wide shot reveals a body this not that unrealistic:
I’m not trying to perpetuate eating disorders among impressionable young people with more toxic fantasy imagery. I could make the breasts a bit smaller but remember this mother had a baby. Let’s say she lost most of her weight by swimming in her backyard pool—but not all of the fat came off… that’s not so unrealistic. I would put some ‘artistic’ stretch marks around her navel just to mark her in a ceremonial way but I’m just not that talented…
