Two Good Things I Would Not Have Clicked On

" Like a soufflČ or brain surgery, the supernatural requires a delicate touch."
- Alessandra Stanley's NYT review of "The 4400," a remarkably good-sounding USA Network movie about alien abductees.

"One is always on the lookout for an excuse to write about mimes, so impassioned are the people who hate them."
- on the odd power of mimes. Note that on this day, the phrase "traffic mimes" had only 15 Google results.

Now I will go see Cheim & Reid's summer group show, "I am the walrus,", which looks at contemporary artists' use of clowns.

My advice: read the print version sometimes, too.

[Update: A reader suggests the C&R show's so bad, I should send away the clowns. I got sidetracked anyway, so I have no idea of my 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.
