On Cycling

Over at Modern Art Notes, Tyler Green has solicited Art Top Ten lists from some folks, partly as a rebuttal to the too-hip-for-him lists in Artforum. [He reserves his best Ike Turner for Thelma Golden, who I like very much.] Anyway, my list is up now. Most of it is culled from the site, so fanatic greg.org readers [Mom, I'm talking to you] will probably not be shocked by any of it.

But I did surprise myself with one choice: I felt obliged to put the Guggenheim's Friday marathon screenings of The Cremaster Cycle on my list. [I mean, I survived it, didn't I?] But then I actually got choked up reading David Edelstein's account of Trilogy Tuesday, the marathon screening of Lord of The Rings.

Granted, not everyone is going to thrill to the point of life-defining religious fervor when they see Return of The King (I'm not really much of a fan myself), but by any standard, LOTR must be considered a far more important, influential, and authentic achievement than Cremaster. And that's before and after adjusting for budgets.

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.
