Chris Marker: 29 July, 1921 - 30 July, 2012

“I will have spent my life trying to understand the function of remembering, which is not the opposite of forgetting, but rather its lining. We do not remember, we rewrite memory much as history is rewritten. How can one remember thirst? “
- Chris Marker

Rest In Peace.

Favorites: SBTRKT.
Aaron Jerome and (often) Sampha.

"I'd rather not talk about myself as a person, and let the music speak for itself. The name SBTRKT is me taking myself away from that whole process. I'm not a social person, so having to talk to DJs to make them play a record is not something I want to do. It's more about giving them a record as an anonymous person and seeing whether they like it or not. If they play it, they play it."

A great chapter in the history of the world is written in chalk.
- Thomas Huxley, 1868

A piece of chalk is an incredible thing. Under a microscope it's a series of small white globes that look like a snowball made of brittle trivets. The trivets are part of ancient skeletons that once belonged to tiny creatures living and floating in the sea that captured carbon and sunshine, then died and sank to the ocean floor. Over millions of years so many have died and sank and laid one on top another that, along with the weight of water above them, they've formed a white blanket of rock. Hence the White Cliffs of Dover.

John Baldessari announced Thursday July 13th, 2012 that he's leaving the board of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles partly as a result of the resignation of Paul Schimmel, the museum’s longtime chief curator and an architect of many of its most important shows. Paul Schimmel resigned under pressure in late June after months of increasing tension with the museum’s director, Jeffrey Deitch, a former New York gallery owner who took over in 2010 with a more pop-culture-oriented vision of the museum’s mission and a mandate to expand its audience.
