Jonathan Harris and Sepandar Kamvar have created an interesting site that gathers information about the emotional state of bloggers. Their site, We Feel Fine, declares that,
"We Feel Fine is an exploration of human emotion on a global scale.
Since August 2005, We Feel Fine has been harvesting human feelings from a large number of weblogs. Every few minutes, the system searches the world's newly posted blog entries for occurrences of the phrases "I feel" and "I am feeling".
Anthony Padgett is an artist interested in the way postmodern art reflects religious belief. His site www.theism.co.uk is a hoot--full of wild ideas and interesting juxtapositions. As a United fan I was quite taken by this image called, God Utd 4, Man Utd, 0---I am sure the score would be different, but good idea.
The online mission statement for Se7en magazine is as follows:
"Seven magazine will address key issues from the seven continents. It will also feature art, film, fashion, and culture reviews from around the world.
In an age where the mainstream media fails to address the real issues that affect the world, Seven will provide a diverse representation of the multi-cultural environment we live in and discuss the positive and negative issues generated by the contemporary climate.
Seven will also provide young and emerging writing talent with a platform on which to address the real issues that affect the planet we live on."
It is a pretty cool magazine, of course, I say that as someone with a big magazine fetish, am always on the lookout for shiny new mags that offer the promise of insight and artistry.
"People ain't no Good," is a classic Nick Cave lyric from The Boatman's Call. It sums up the general feeling in this, the first film from one of his screenplays. The Proposition is a morality tale, or perhaps an immorality tale, or an amorality one--something like that anyway. Not a single person in this movie is good, not one, and it is what makes the film so jarringly real and intense.
