Hokusai Ice Wall
This is not the actual installation, but an incredible simulation of a piece that my friend Alison Ullman made last spring. Hokusai's print of a cresting wave projected onto a wall of ice that Alison built in her bathtub.
I suspect that the still photography should be credited to Lee Anne Phillips, but I guess I should check that out, eh?

The above image is some laminated Kabbalistic holy roller claptrap that the mohel set up. I'm losing patience with 'my people.'
From the Temple Sinai Hymnal:
The Torah is a tree which spreads its leafy boughsA few criticisms:
Pro-o-viding shade and happ-i-ness
For those below.
Its pa-a-aths are peaceful ways, of qui-i-et and rest
And all those, who walk therein
Are amply bless'd.
- No melody
- No meter
- Can't sustain a metaphor for six lines. Tree, path; choose one and develop it.
- All this 'peace' crapola appears to be a lie.
Just twenty dimes
Is all you give
To plant a tree
And help Israel live!
"No prepuce--no peace."
I'm hanging up my sandek shoes.

American Lung Association of Wisconsin's Quit Smoking Self-Hypnosis Tape.mp3
This is a dub of a quit-smoking (audio) tape that the American Lung Association of Wisconsin put out sometime in the 1970's. I helped me to quit. I'm putting it up here for the use of anybody who wants to give it a try. Probably best not to listen to this while driving.
Your eyelids are getting very heavy. Bullem....bullem...bullem....
