Spring is my favorite time of year upstate New York. Watching the leaves change,
picking a flower or an apple..In the “big apple?” Nothing like it!
Diaries Of A Waitress by John Sebastian
His arms were short, his teeth were sharp, he sat there at table 1
with a crazy look in his eyes and smiled at me with a half cocked glazed
stare that made me think of movies I had seen about murder and the occult.
Kaliopy Interviews Photographer Nicolette Thain
1) HOW DID PHOTOGRAPHY BECOME PART OF YOUR LIFE ?
" I have always been an expressive and creative individual at a young age,
through High school I took up Graphic Design and Writing, but didn't quite find
my outlet till some years later when I was visiting family in England, that was 7
years ago now, and I haven't looked back since. I bought my first camera in England,
it was only a 2 pixel digital camera, but I was fascinated by it and was vastly addicted
to photographing all sorts of objects and my surroundings"

My Dinner With Michael
It’s two minutes past midnight on a Friday at the Bowery Bar. I’ve just
stepped out of a cab and I’m flanked by two of the most outrageous
transsexuals in the world (or the New York club scene, at least). Amanda,
or A-Man-Duh as she liked to pronounce it and Olestra Lucille Stools.
Amanda resembles a risen from the crypt Marilyn, only with much puffier
lips, while Olestra prefers a Carol Brady on super hormones look.

“Express Your Love Everyday”
By: Nina Mistier
Love is a powerful emotion; it transmits amazingly positive messages
throughout your body, along with happy chemicals which trigger happiness,
health and a sense of well being. When we feel these things, more of it is
drawn to us. The classic example is when a single person finds love and
feels so good being in this loving relationship, all of a sudden everyone is
drawn to him/her.
WHAT: Free as Air and Water, a group
exhibition that features a diverse array of artistic works
that will explore the relationship between art, ecology,
and human rights , is part of The Cooper Union’s 150th
anniversary celebration (opening: 10/12, closing 10/27).
The show marks the opening of 41 Cooper Gallery, an
innovative gallery space housed in the college’s new
academic, sustainable building at 41 Cooper Square . The
group exhibition will examine the spirit of a historic quote
by Cooper Union’s founder Peter Cooper: “Education
should be Free as Air and Water.” Recognizing the
difference between then (1859) and now (2009), the
privatization of air, water and land has significantly
impacted the environment and has created many
challenges for citizens and subjects. Free as Air and
Water will pose questions about our contemporary
moment, linking a broad set of issues such a political
ecology and the role of art in relation to the environment.
