The other day, I posted an entry about Peter Milton. Tonight I found out that, in 1999, he was Artist in Residence at Pasadena City College. I knew I left the place too soon! There were probably exhibits of his work, and lectures and such. I really miss being able to go to Pasadena anytime I want. If Butte College had an artists in residence program, I'll bet their first artist would be the person who does those motel paintings of kids with big, creepy eyes- and it would be downhill from there. Bullfighters on velvet, anyone? No, this place is not a major center of culture.
Another bit of linkage: leprosy discovered subliminal goatse on the cover of the September 20th issue of Time Magazine. If you are familiar with goatse, you'll laugh your (pardon the reference) ass off. You aren't familiar with goatse? I won't link to it. You can look it up on Google, but be forewarned: you might be very, very sorry that you did, even though seeing it will make the (unintended?) humor of the Time cover comprehensible. The original goatse is not a pretty image (and decidedly not work safe.)
Now I'm going back out to enjoy what's left of the first delightfully chilly night in what seems like ages. Happy Monday the Thirteenth.
