We wait for what we want, which we want a certain way; but in the heat of the moment we decide who is right -- the object of our way or the way of the object.

By rights, this dispenser ought to give you this picture for 50 cents. And, well, it doesn't.

Fruitvale .............

Significant of the times, the neighborhood will again be nearly devoid of the usual exterior Christmas decor this coming holiday. But this is "East Bay" in California, and more permanent psychic "signs of the times" are usually on urban sidewalk display all year. Farming in the driveway, allegiance to tolerance, the official logo of peace, gates shared with neighbors, the sea of common sun.

The pixelated Hockney

Linking to things like this on the web is not speculative but it is opportunistic. There's no telling if it will still be there later. So it's worth spelling out just a couple of citations of the link:

 

The New York Review of Books

David Hockney's iPhone Passion

By Lawrence Weschler

 

Quote:

Hockney has fashioned literally hundreds, probably over a thousand, such images, often sending out four or five a day to a group of about a dozen friends, and not really caring what happens to them after that. (He assumes the friends pass them along through the digital ether.) These are, mind you, not second-generation digital copies of images that exist in some other medium: their digital expression constitutes the sole (albeit multiple) original of the image.

The flood of images has more or less resolved itself into three streams.

Unquote.

 

To which I say, welcome, David, to the club.

Driving around in wine country on four hours of sleep, I made a wrong turn and was slapped awake by this.
