stanley, stanley, stanley---- let's play 
james wagner points out that there is a new book on stanley kubric.
and he made a very nice comment about it in his blog pointing out that he probably the last person discovering kubric as a photographer.

I have watched kubrick films and thought about his work a lot over the past five or so years, I once was thinking on doing an exhibition on artist and art works that related to his films- but we never came longer than the idee and some research.

I haven't been writing so much on kubrick either, one of the few texts published is written together with the norwegian artist °ystein aasan . This was for the berlin magazine neue review - the magazine is edited by art critic raimar stange and artist dave allen.
We did write the text for the exhibition on kubrick when it was shown in berlin late last year/ beginning of this year.

I think that what is most facinating with this film maker is his ability to transform or develope (going from being some one that did not read to a profound reader, from being a photographer to being a major hollywood film maker etc.) and his way of dealing with archiving (archiving is always a 'problem'). Not to mention that he played chess very well.

ps. do play on freechess.org I am apxtangen, the same goes for gameknot.com/chess.

things I didn't know... part 1 
I guess I am sort of out of it, but I learned two minutes ago the origin of the word spam.

life and so on 
I guess it was not a great surprise, but I did not get the job at Art in Nordland... they are still looking for a director, so if anyone wants to move above the artic circle and work on contemporary - international, I might add - art. then go to their site and send them an mail. I haven't given up yettough...

soundtrack of the day:
king midas, the albums Romeo turn and The Jaguars (2005).

selling banner ads. for the norwegian online paper http://kunstkritikk.no and trying to finish a few texts.

further, according to spyware doctor, I do have 39 infections on my laptop, there is at least one trojan on my computer (it is a Trojan.MulDrop.1324 I think, and it is situated in c:\recycled\Dc234.exe -- and I do not know what to do with it.)

I feel sort of helpless. I did a hijackthis logfile - and this one to showed some very bad things.

i tried to do an online check at panda active scan but they do not support firefox or opera browsers.

I am really fed up with being a halfling -- I want to umsteigen to ubuntu -- but sort of never find the time really, and so is it that every now and then the search for bugs, virus etc is eating up my time. But I guess to umsteigen would also eat up a lot of my time to fix everyting and to get installed etc as well

update to radiodays 
I like the sound of 'radiodays'.
Have added a static page named 'artlinks: sound and Radio'. There are maybe more sound than radio in there by now, but I liked them all what I had time to hear so far.

many of the links I found at Magnetic Spirits link site. This is an sound artist called Victoria Fenner in Canada. Also, do read her thoughts about sound art ...

Now, I know there is much more to the subject of sound art and radio online, but I think I will leave the subject for today. Maybe more tomorrow.
