I Saw the Light...
(Cover) "Women & Film Both Sides of the Camera" E. Ann Kaplan 1983 Methuen NYC/London
Plate 8 This shot, like many others, is set up so that the women are seen in front of a window. The garden outside is glimpsed, but nothing stirs. The women together appear to create an Other space; they do not need words to know what each is feeling.
From Ch. 7 Silence as female resistance in Marguerite Dura's Nathalie Granger (1972)
On the Conan O'brien show circa 1997

Around our camp fire last night in Big Sur I remembered this favorite painting of mine and brought it up in conversation...
Loaded with symbols like doves and his mythical "LopLop" bird, Ernsts works vacillate between feelings of estrangement and enchantment. One notable exception on display, however, is Fireside Angel (1937), one of his few explicitly political canvases. Sub-titled The Triumph of Surrealism, it shows a bird-like monster blind with rage that serves to symbolize the wave of fascism gripping Europe.
"The Fireside Angel is a picture I painted after the defeat of the Republicans in Spain," Ernst once said about the work. "This is, of course, an ironical title for a kind of clumsy oaf which destroys everything that gets in the way. That was my impression in those days of the things that might happen in the world. And I was right."
“Fireside Angel,” painted in 1937 (during the Spanish Civil War) is a commentary on the hidden danger that lies underneath the veneer of Fascism. [Also, I think the stomping and this beast trying to escape from itself manifested as this grabbing monster coming out of its leg, might also perhaps be some kind of manifestation of a deep rooted guilt of Ernst’s; I just read that he abandoned, “rejected,” his first wife and child when he left Germany in 1922.]
“Ernst’s works took on a darker tone as he saw the signs of approaching world war. Forest imagery became more prominent in his work — forests, in Ernst’s words, “take over the sun.” Fascism was a plague spreading through Europe, and Ernst channeled his fear of this specter into 1937’s “Fireside Angel,” which depicts a raging, violent monster destructively plodding across an abstracted landscape. Ironically naming this frightening beast an “angel,” Ernst evokes the danger of the seemingly innocuous, referencing the surface appeal of fascism but underscoring the evil he perceived in its proliferation.” Review of "Max Ernst: A Retrospective" by Ryder Kessler

In The Beginning/Shout At The Devil
[Twitter: I want to copy paste to my blog the dream I had right before i woke this morning but i'll probably edit what I wrote and my writing is bad.] I only scrambled the initials;)
A weird dream I had…January 7, 2010
Traveled to Santa Fe kissed passionately on the cheek C
House party that night and I was going to stay in her house…
Ran into T for the first time (since…)…I quickly decided to stop and put out my hand…
She seemed happy (enough) to see me, (weirdly clingy (not likely))….She turned out to be a waitress in a restaurant…
I slipped away but later heard some really good dance music coming from the restaurant/club…
Spent the rest of a dream trying to connect with C by (weirdly) giving her space. This was kind of an allegory of my relationship with Y.
Helicopter aerial view of a map of Michigan – weird desolate lonely but interesting coast….but suddenly its like we are in Italy climbing a hill…we can see and feel the wind of a landslide coming our way…
We decide the only way to escape is to run sideways…also a row of trees saves us from part of the continuing landslide…
We come to a vineyard and I suggest we should climb up because the ground will be sturdy because of the support of the roots; I feel slightly guilty because I had seen a beautiful woman a moment before in the vineyard…
We are with a group of people and we stop to have lunch (it feels like Italy) we are put in a small room without windows and I get to sit next to C, its awkward because I’m still trying to connect…I feel jealous and insecure.
Now we are suddenly in Pacific Grove or New Monterey to be exact.
A funeral proprietor is trying to convince me that my “friends” should use his services…
A friend of C shows up…awkward…I’m waiting for the evening.
Someone asks me for someone else if they can be the entertainment for Saturday and I tell him that I think that there will be to much going on and that Sunday is the main day (wedding party or something?)

James Carr - The Dark End Of The Street
"Carr suffered from bipolar disorder for most of his life which affected his career. This was evident during a tour of Japan in the 1970s when he froze in front of an audience following an overdose of antidepressants."
