  7. Prepping for tonight’s benefit show for NYU Divest! It’s so exciting to see my KXL, divestment, and anti-fracking worlds colliding. And so very heart warming to see so much community support for our campaign. A million thanks to Don Liber for making this happen!!

  10. Year-end Round-up of Things

    by J.A. Myerson

    Last year, I wrote a post here called 12 Articles That Killed It in 2012 that people seemed to find useful. So here’s a similar thing for 2013. My friends are featured heavily both because I like featuring my friends and because my friends produced unbelievable work this year. Away we go.

    Seven essays that bowled me over this year, in no particular order:

    1. How To Be A Person In The Age Of Autoimmunity, Carolyn Lazard, Cluster Magazine

    2. The Worst of White Folks, Kiese Laymon, Gawker

    3. Yes, America Has Gotten Better About Racism, but It Really Doesn’t Matter, Mychal Denzel Smith, The Nation

    4. Cockblocked by Redistribution: A Pick-up Artist in Denmark, Katie J.M. Baker, Dissent

    5. Expecto Patronum: Lessons From Harry Potter for Social Justice Organizing, Chris Crass, Organizing Upgrade

    6. What Picketing Taught Me About Feminism, Julia Carrie Wong, Salon

    7. Dear Khary (An Autobiography of Gentrification), Dr. Jasmine Elizabeth Johnson, Gawker

    The best satire I read this year:

    1. The first job creator, Adam Kotsko, An und für sich

    2. Destructo Salon: Does Matthew Yglesias Enjoy Murder?, General Gandhi, Mark Brendle, Jeb Lund, Et tu, Mr. Destructo?

    An incredible wedding article:

    1. In Zuccotti Park, a Demonstration of Love, Colin Moynihan, The New York Times

    Remember this shit going down this year?

    1. Human Doll Cloning Is So Hot Right Now In Japan, Messy Nessy Chic

    2. School Suspends Student for Writing YOLO on Test, Tweeting It to School Officials, Neetzan Zimmerman, Gawker

    3. Richard III dig: DNA confirms bones are king’s, BBC News

    4. Woolwich suspect’s friend arrested after appearing on Newsnight, Conal Urquhart and Vikram Dodd, The Guardian

    And a couple cool things to look at:

    1. Visualization of Every Protest Since 1979

    2. NYC Grid

TERRIFYING VISIONS OF HELL BY MURDERED POLISH PAINTER
Zdzisław Beksiński (1929-2005) was a Polish born painter with no classical training who showed no real interest in museums or galleries. He started out studying architecture, then began work as a construction supervisor but he hated that. He eventually found an interest in sculpture, then photography and later painting. Those that knew him reported him to be a kind, humorous and well measured man who took little interest in over analyzing his own work. His inspiration for his art is supposed to have mostly come from music, I would absolutely love to know what he was listening to.
The late 90′s were a bleak time for Zdzisław Beksiński, his wife died of an illness and his son, Tomasz, committed suicide. In 2005 the son of his long time caretaker stabbed him to death, 17 wounds in total, because he wouldn’t lend him the equivalent of $100.
His paintings, most of which he chose to paint on boards rather than canvass, can now be seen in the Beksiński museum which houses 50 paintings and 120 drawings. The gallery is in Częstochowa, Poland, so it’s not very convenient for me to visit but I will do my best. His pictures look ultra creepy and bleak to the extreme, but he himself often found them amusing and thought of them as hopeful rather than apocalyptic.

My visceral reaction to this photo: “THE HANDS ARE DISCONNECTED FROM THE BODY!”
