here we go again. the clocks have gone back, the early darkness brings on the faint feeling of disorientation, and driving home from work requires a little extra concentration. still, aren’t the colours pretty?

so now we have some guy grafting an ear onto his arm [in the name of art, of course]. whilst i am normally open-minded to modern art in all its various disguises, this comes a little too close to ‘the line’ for comfort. at the very least, there’s a question of ethics. should he be wasting surgeons’ time when there are plenty of people who have far more need for it? ok, it has the initial ‘thats wierd’ factor, but after a few moments the feeling fades and i realise i am looking at an ear. on an arm. i am struggling to see the long term benefits. apparently the publicity will be good for people who are missing ears.

oh, and thanks to the bbc for clarifying that “the ear does not function”.

poet of the month

this month’s acknowledgement goes to James McIntyre. who could forget such literary classics as:

Fertile Lands and Mammoth Cheese
Father Ranney, the Cheese Pioneer
Oxford Cheese Ode
Prophecy of a Ten Ton Cheese
and Ode on the Mammoth Cheese?

mcintyre’s delicate use of dactylic hexameter and anapestic tetrameter demonstrate his sophisticated grasp of social and political issues, which were irrefutebly ahead of his time. he is truly one of the greatest poets in history, and an inspiration to us all. or something.

having recently noticed that the chemical brothers’ lastest track is receiving a pretty bad reception, to say the least, i would like to put my hand up and say that i, for one, love it. singing fish… why? who knows. but i think it works. the salmon dance may be different to any other dance/pop track out there, but is no less creative and imaginative than the chems’ other legendary songs, with a video to match. give it a chance people.

welcome to idreamelectric, a personal scrapyard of art, design, photography, and anything that happens to catch my interest at the time. these miscellaneous tidbits have been eagerly plucked out of cyberspace, and my own [questionable] brand of creativity, for your pleasure. enjoy.
