Chris-Craft 22 Launch

Medicine Lodge, Kansas’s Locally Owned And Operated Newspaper

Blink O Rama

We all do it. So why devote a blog to it? Because it’s just so darned funny to see Geraldo, Emeril, Clint, and Arnold in a state of eye-fluttering awkwardness. There’s nothing like being caught on camera with closed eyes to give pundits and performers the appearance of gracelessness and ineptitude. Some body language experts purport that excessive blinking is a body’s cue that someone is telling a little fib. So we have to ask: Were the subjects of these photos engaging in a single blink, captured at a fortuitous moment? Or were they engaging in a larger, more ominous stream of extreme eyelid flapping? Blogger Danno offers no insight into this phenomenon. But he does show that anyone can go from cool to fool in the blink of an eye.

Stretch Daily

What is the mysterious Stretch Daily? Shameless self-promotion, or visual vanguard of the coming New World Order? Pre-IPO beta site, or online aerobics class gone wrong? Nobody really knows except Mark, who writes his site exists to help me stretch myself creatively. A likely story. The only thing certain is that every day the Stretchmeister, using photography, drawing, arranged objects, doodles, graphic design, animation, typography, poetry, music, food, text, and other tricks of the trade, gets himself revved up enough to post yet another artful abstraction, complete with accompanying caption. Check out as many of the stretches as you can, but for starters we recommend the existential despair of May 7, the slightly perverse symmetry of March 8, and the whimsical lampshade mask series of October 25 — 28.

Dancer’s Journal, A

Chris-Craft 24

From your seat in the front row, you can enjoy a performance of Appalachian Spring, choreographed by Martha Graham, the founder of modern dance. But this Flash site offers more than a front-row seat — it gives you a backstage pass to the preparation required to mount a modern dance production. This interactive exhibit chronicles the pre-performance world of dancers in the Martha Graham Dance Company, the oldest modern dance company in the world. Open the locker of Jordy Kandinsky, the company’s newest member, and you’ve got access to her journals, filled with annotated programs, notes, memos, and background material. But most impressive of all, you can watch and listen as members of the company, including Martha Graham herself, perform. Take your seat; the orchestra is about to warm up.

Nathan Sawaya: The Art of the Brick

Playing with toys for a living sounds pretty good to us, but artist Nathan Sawaya takes it to a whole new level. Having abandoned a lucrative law career for a hard-won stint as Lego master builder at Legoland California, this inventive sculptor now runs his own company and hones his unusual skills on such pieces as a 10-foot-long Chris-Craft Speedster, mosaic portraits of Alfred Hitchcock and Lindsay Lohan, a seven-foot replica of the Brooklyn Bridge, and an incredible rendition of Han Solo frozen in carbonite — which took nearly three months and 10,000 gray Lego bricks to build. And as if his job weren’t cool enough, Sawaya has started sculpting in candy, too. Explore this entertaining and elegantly designed site to see the Lego virtuoso at work, and don’t forget to look below the images for his cheeky commentary.

The Color Television Revolution

Hey all you iPod-festishizing, TIVO-addicted, Blackberry-dependent techno-geeks. Kris Trexler is here to tell you to quit slinging all that trendy jargon long enough to marvel at the simple joys of. color TV! That’s right, back in the day a color receiver was as pricey and exotic as that high-def plasma behemoth you’ve got your eye on. Trexler, who’s worked in television since the ’60s, waxes ultra-enthusiastic as he presents a look at some important aspects of the great color revolution. Among the highlights: Quicktime video (with sound) of the color presentation logos seen on NBC, CBS, and ABC; behind the scenes photos of early color TV shows; footage from the first NBC color special (An Evening with Fred Astaire, 1958); and a couple of pages on The Edsel Show, including video from the opening. Yes, in these polarized political times, it’s nice to know not everyone sees things in black and white.
