Threads Woven Together, Like the Saffron Robes of A Reincarnated Lama

Tert–n Chungdrag Dorje, alias Steven Seagal "The Action Lama"

"This is part of an unrelenting campaign to disparage Mr. Seagal and reads like a bad screenplay."

-- A disciple/attorney of Hollywood Buddhist and (how'd we miss that miraculous birth?) reincarnated lama Steven Seagal denies His Holiness was behind threats against an LA Times reporter. Lama Seagal is in a strictly-business dispute with some Mafia-linked partners.

"...mostly he talked about his buddhist practice, 'penis moments' re: bilbao..."
NY Times architecture critic (and Hollywood-style Buddhist) Herbert Muschamp apparently parodies himself at a recent Columbia Univ. Architourism conference.

"They are astoundingly innovative, creative and exciting."

-- Roland Betts, LMDC, praising the new round of designs he commissioned from star-architects for rebuilding the WTC site. Apparently, the LMDC's parent entity, the Port Authority, is proceeding independently and looks forward to "combining the best elements of the seven design teams" with the plans it's developing on its own.

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
