Other Noteworthy Events (From Different Ends Of The Creative Spectrum)

From the LA Times, Mark Swed's rather lyrical article about "See Here, A Colloquium on Attention and the Arts," held at Pomona College. Alumnus James Turrell and others spoke, and works by once-attention-trying composers like Anton Webern were played. [via Peter Johnstone's Revelator.org]

Something I never thought I'd see - a broadcast version of Paul Verhoeven's classic, Showgirls, the first NC-17 film released by a major studio. I kid you not, it's on VH-1 right now, complete with thoroughly dubbed dialogue and low-budget, digitally inserted bikini tops in the scenes they just couldn't cut out. [Or settle for the original on DVD.]

What VH-1 should do, is Showgirls: Behind the Music. Space Ghost up some clips from Saved by the Bell, throw in some childhood home-style footage, and interviews with former classmates, and explain to me why Nomi's so angry.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, 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 greg.org that time.
