Cheez-balls — May 16th totally snuck past me. I’ve had a lot on my mindgrapes but I’d planned to throw some things up about Andy Kaufman because he died that day in ’84. Yes, he did. Up there is some referential liberated negative space in his honor to at least partially atone for the oversight.


Screencap of Andy Kaufman taken by me.

And here he is selectively lip-synching the theme song to “Mighty Mouse” on the premiere of SNL, October 11, 1975.

RIP, A.K.

Liberated Negative Space o’ the Day: Fibonacci prophecy with a side of insult

May 24, 2010

Looks like some special vandal finally got around to reading the Da Vinci Code.

To recap the bummer aspects of this liberated space:

  • You are retarded (ouch, not cool),
  • — little,
  • — and a shit.
  • The world is ending …
  • … soon.


    But, on the bright side:


  • Math.
  • Live for today.

    I think I just may.

    “You know that day you told me about, when Gotham would no longer need Batman? It’s coming. Harvey is that hero. He locked up half of the city’s criminals, and he did it without wearing a mask. Gotham needs a hero with a face.”

    The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan, 2008).

    Or even …. two faces? What-what? Yeah. You let me know how that retirement plan works out, bud.

    edit: “sidewalk around the corner from Sheridan College in Oakville (near toronto)” according to Jim in the comments, whose friend Matt liberated the space. Super-fat-bat-thanks!

    This shot of some liberated negative tent space at Woodstock is up by way of foreshadowing today’s Movie Moment.

    Liberated Negative Space o’ the Day: Never alone

    San Vitale tunnel, Bologna, Italy.


    No one who walks through this tunnel has to feel alone, because they are surrounded by evidence that other human beings have walked the same path on which they find themselves now. To me this is the purpose of art. This is art at its best, and artists at their most vital: hundreds of people holding hands with you in the dark.
