End of Year This & That

I recommend watching: Gasland: A Film By Josh Fox. You can catch it on HBO or via Netflix. Fracking, as is, is bad news.

I ♥ NY (Blizzard Edition)


Cast Iron Facades -- Blizzard 2010 © Nina Buesing Corvallo

Downtown is the heart of the city. This is where it all began. Diversity is what makes New York. Get on the subway and you can end up in a totally different world, but in the same city. There is quaint and pretty, modern and imposing. But for me there is nothing like the vista of SoHo.

Sofia


View from my room © Nina Buesing Corvallo

Generally I prefer to rent a place when I travel rather than stay at a hotel. I need a kitchen. However I do love staying at the Chateau. Come to think of it, the Chateau's rooms and bungalows have kitchens too.
Sofia Coppola's latest movie takes place at the Chateau.
I am excited to see it - Sofia and the Chateau. What's not to love?
You can listen to Sofia Coppola and Stephen Dorff speak about their new movie Somewhere on NPR's Fresh Air: www.npr.org.

Saturday This & That


Bovine Beauty © Nina Buesing Corvallo

Last night we watched Claire Danes in the HBO Temple Grandin movie. We really liked it, if you haven't seen it, go get it via Netflix.
"Nature is cruel, we do not have to be". Well said, Ms. Grandin. That is how I feel about being a vegetarian. I am not beyond reproach. But I try to be kind.

If you are interested in reading Temple Grandin's essay you can find them on her website: www.grandin.com.

Antibalas at Le Poisson Rouge December 4, 2010

What a fun live band. I just wish they would go on stage in timelier fashion. Perhaps it is not their fault though, since many members of the band are also doing nightly performances on Broadway for Fela aswell, thus pulling a double-shift.

Holidaze

Hmm. The other day I walked by a chain store that sells cosmetics and in the window it boldly said: "Give More." (Translation: buy more of our stuff). I know they are in the business of moving merchandise, but geez. I have bought things from this company before, but I am not likely to buy anything from them right now. It is such a turn off. I don't like commands and enough with the crazy consumerism.
This year for x-mukah we decided to put a $10 limit for gifts.
It was my sister's idea and we all agreed. I think gifts are wonderful. Even big ones. But not all the time and sometimes it is just nice to get back to the basics. I am just as happy over a box of Twinings Earl Grey as I am if you get me a fancy vase or whatever. In fact depending on the vase I might prefer the box of Twinings Earl Grey.

At the end of year is usually when we make donations. We already gave some money to our high school,UNIS, because we think it is the most amazing place. We gave some money to NPR, because we listen to Brian Lehrer all the time. We gave a little to to MS research and to an LGBT rights campaign. We don't give huge amounts, we give what we can afford. Other organizations I plan on giving to is Ovarian Cancer Research and RAINN.

RAINN has been on my mind. This weekend one of my neighbors was robbed and assaulted in our lobby. At 5 PM in the afternoon on a busy street. The attacker wanted to come upstairs, but fiercely my neighbor resisted and thankfully the attacker did not persist. Perhaps because there were too many people out. This incident reminded me of what happened to a class mate of mine, a couple of doors down from my apartment. A man put a knife to her throat in front of her door and raped her and her roomate in their apartment. Assaults happen everyday and everywhere. Whether you are in the city or the suburbs or even in the country. And sometimes it is even someone you know. I try to be aware of my surroundings and avoid risky situations. But unfortunately the truth is no one can totally protect themselves.
RAINN seems like a very good organization to support. Check it out at: www.rainn.org.

Since Thanksgiving is Around the Corner...

A few years ago we started to host the "Orphan" Thanksgiving. Being alone on Thanksgiving can be depressing, even if you have not grown up with the holiday. I've been there.
So if we know you, and you don't have a place to go for the holiday, come to our house. What's the catch? There is no Turkey. It's all vegge and you have to bring something vegge to eat.
Need inspiration for a vegge dish? Check out The New York Times's Well's Vegetarian Thanksgiving.

Happiness

Two of my favorite people just got hitched. This made my day :)

The (Continental) Home

My European friends all have such stylish apartments. My homes never look the way I want them to.
I have moved 16 times in New York alone. And that has some to do with why my homes never really reflect me. Another reason is that I have lived in places that were not meant for permanent or quality living (dorms, tenements, studio apartments, converted factory spaces). My European friends all live in apartments or even houses that were designed for permanent living. ( I would love a window in my bathroom!).
But at the end of the day of course how your home looks also has to do with you. My parents every time they moved brought all their things, even if they knew that they were only going somewhere for a couple of years. My friend A., put in a new kitchen into her rental apartment, our friend M. redid entire parts of her rental apartment. I admire that. We have barely even bought a piece of furniture. Ours is either Ikea or a hand-me-down or found on the street. I don't mind. Even though sometimes I dream of a nice table or re-upholstering my couch. But in New York I never know what size my next home will be, so I guess I will hold off on buying that nice big round table I am dreaming of, just in case it won't fit in the next apartment.

Here are some links to some beautiful homes:
Down a Paris Alley, a 19th-Century Dream House in The New York Times by Paola Singer
Jenna Lyons' home in Brooklyn at Habitually Chic blog.
India Hicks' home in the Bahamas also at Habitually Chic Blog.

Everyday Magic Realism


Farewell to the late King of Peliatan © Jason McCann

Whether in literature or art I have a fondness for magical realism. When I spent time in Ubud on Bali I felt as if I had stepped into an early novel by Isabelle Allende or a creation by Simen Johan. Ritual is part of everyday life and the arts are part of everyone's life in Ubud. I like to travel because it elevates the mundane to the extraordinary. My experience in Ubud was exceptional, there was so much beauty - appealing to all senses: Frangipani scented soft batiks, air thick with incense, good food, the sounds of the Gamelan, the deep mooing of cows, vast vistas of rice paddies and magnificent carvings everywhere. We stayed at a beauteous villa and along with friends witnessed the nuptials of people we love. Life, if one is lucky, is punctured by sublime moments where everything comes together perfectly. Art is made of the same alchemy.

New Yorkers

When you live in New York, you see celebrities all the time. You'll see the governor on the beach and Jon Stewart buying cat food at the supermarket. It's just part of life and New Yorkers don't care.
Celebrities are just people and one thing the 24 hour news cycle pontificates, is that people in the public eye are just as flawed as the rest of us (Emily has a post on a similar subject, which you can find at: www.emilyshur.com/blog).
However I am not immune and just like Jesse Taylor Ferguson I have a crush on Alec Baldwin.
I was tickled to see Alec Baldwin walk into the restaurant I was eating at last night (the man knows his restaurants!). When The Hunt for Red October came out I probably saw it 10 times. While Brad Pitt has faded from my radar, Alec Balwin maintains a steady position. The man is funny, witty, handsome (I like a manly belly), has one of the best voices, is a proud and outspoken New Yorker and - drum roll please- a vegetarian. He seems to just get better with age.
What's not to love?

Saturday This & That (Accents)

Via Kottke.org I came across footage of subway ride across the Brooklyn Bridge from 1899. Cool. See it, by clicking here.

Because I don't have television, I sometimes miss out on things as they happen. But the other side of that coin is that I can watch things int heir entirety at my own pace after they come out on DVD. The husband and I are working ourselves through The Wire currently. How come is seems that it is easier for English actors to do passable American accents than the other way around? Brit Dominik West in The Wire does a pretty good job. Before I knew he was English, I just assumed he was American.I noticed a slight hint of something in his cadence. But wrote it off to a regional accent. My husband thought it was traces of an overcome child hood speech impediment.
Maybe the answer is that since America is such a diverse immigrant nation that is also physically large, one could argue there is no such thing as a non-American accent. Ergo doing an American accent is easier. However most voice recognition systems don't seem to see things my way.

I don't sound exactly like a native English speaker. Some people hear it, others don't. It is more pronounced when I am tired.
Most people cannot tell by my accent where I am originally from. That is because most assume that an accent only indicates one location/culture/country. And I grew up in many places.
Sometimes when people ask, I toy with the idea of saying I am Amish or Canadian. I think I could get away with both.
If you click here, you can see Brit Dominik West do a fake English Accent as his American character James McNulty.

Ryan McGinley has a new series titled Life Adjustment Center. I have been enjoying reading A Cup of Jo. I particularly applaud her post on breastfeeding in public. And speaking of women & their bodies, I also read Ariel Kaminer's article A Hidden Minefield at New York Pregnancy Centers.

Melancolic, but Resolute


my first passport & a visa to Iraq ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

I should be on the A train out to JFK right now.
Lots of people I love have already made their way to Indonesia for the nuptials of two awesome people. But we have to sit this one out. It really sucks.
There is no more adequate way to describe it. It just sucks.
I wanted to be there for Emma & Jonathan, I wanted to be with the rest of our friends, I wanted to travel and I want(ed) to return to Bali.
I have always travelled. My parents took me all over the globe and not going on this trip made me realize what a priority travel is for me. I love being home too. It's a whole yin yang thing.
Nothing clears my mind better than a long haul night flight. Tabula Rasa. And then you get off the plane and step into another world. Leaving behind the quotidian.
It is now almost November and what that means is that this year is now old enough to have become messy. This year certainly had a few lows. Some things were out of my control others I did not navigate well . So what to do? Giddy up and keep on trucking.

More

More scanning, more things watched. I don't have a TV but I subscribe to Netflix and I watch Hulu. I always liked Julianna Margulies and The Good Wife is a good show. Julianna Margulies was also featured in Rosanna Arquette's documentary Searching for Deborah Winger, which I also just saw. I enjoyed it and made me miss Nymphoto. I meant to see Searching for Deborah Winger for a while, but I think it only recently found its way to Netflix. It features so many fantastic and inspiring artists - Charlotte Rampling for one (and the beloved Roger Ebert).
I always thought I was lucky for having spent my teenage years in Paris. Women like Charlotte Rampling, Simone Signoret and Charlotte Gainsbourg are revered and it gives a girl a way better idea about beauty than growing up with what most of Hollywood feeds.
In the documentary Charlotte Rampling said that passion is what gets you out of bed, and then she half-way joked, that sometimes she just cannot get out of bed. I know what she means.

Climate Change



The Tree House & The Snowstorm; Winter Escapes: Briland & Belize ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

Love the Seasons. I have been scanning & retouching, which is boring and time consuming, but allowed me to catch up on The Brian Lehrer Show. After I watched Love Story & Wonderboys.
Both movies take place on the East Coast in the winter time, and it made me look forward to winter. Home becomes so cozy. And I love the crisp winter air. And Snow. And going to a warm places. It's the best thing ever.
Getting off a plane and being hit my hot humid hot air after escaping the cold back home feels so good.
My friend Catja was married in gorgeous Savannah one spring.
Money was a bit tight and we ended up driving to Savannah. It was blissful to slowly traverse into the balmy Georgia air, leaving behind the cold of New York.

Nature/Nurture


1st & 2nd grade

Yesterday a friend from elementary school came to visit me. I think this was only the second time in 25 years that I have seen him. But sometimes when you have known someone that long and maybe more importantly when you met them when you were really young, you can just pick up where you left off. Of course he and I have lived and experienced much in between, but it feels as if there is a fundamental understanding of who the other person is.
So conversation was easy, we laughed a lot and giggled and time went by fast.

He is a successful actor back in Germany. He also happens to have a great voice. A lot of his work is voice-over gigs. But not only does he have a pleasant voice and perfect intonation, he also has a real singing voice. He is a trained opera singer and has done a couple of productions. However he said yesterday, that he really isn't all that musically inclined. He trained his voice because a voice coach heard it, and said that with a voice like it he could not not train it. He is blessed with an incredible voice, but his passion is acting and speaking. I guess this is just one of those little curve balls the universe throws us.
My friend is successful at what he does, but he is not a super star and in any event, the German language market is much smaller than the English market. So he has known lean times. Like pretty much any artist.
And like many artists in mid-life he has contemplated changing directions. But he came to the conclusion that it is all worth it, as long as he continues to enjoy his work.
I am big on nurture. I believe that I can better myself, that parenting matters, that my conscious eating is good for my health,that change is possible, etc, etc.
But it is not all about nurture. There is nature. Talent is nature. However talent alone is not enough, you also need training and practice -- nurture.
To get life right I guess you need to acknowledge the two and figure a way to play to your strengths and enjoy yourself too. Joy is essential it seems. Without joy you might be ok, but you won't be great.

Film

We went to see The Social Network this week. And I really liked it.
It made me long for the days of The West Wing. I am a visual person and certainly appreciate aesthetics, but it is such a relief and pleasure to encounter good dialogue in a movie. Aaron Sorkin just excels at this. Even the husband liked this movie.
Smart movies seem to have almost entirely vanished . Is it because the majority of movie goers do not want to think or pay attention? The person sitting in front of me at the theater seemed less than impressed or captured by The Social Network. He texted and used apps throughout the entire movie.
Man, the screen of that i-phone was bright.
Anyway. One note, I think Jonathan Groff would have been a better casting choice for the character of Sean Parker.

I keep thinking about my friend Emily's portrait of Mark Zuckerberg. It is one of the most poignant portraits of him. And I would not be surprised if Emily's portait influenced visual master David Fincher.

"Sed fugit interea fugit irreparabile tempus, singula dum capti circumvectamur amore"
Much truth in that. And time flies. So what to do? I guess cram in as much as you can without stressing too much. Grab what you can, cherish & spoil the one(s) you love, celebrate the good, don't sweat the small stuff, but appreciate the little things - and if you are like me, take lots of pictures.

Life & Death (& The Valley)


Desert Rainbow ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

Back to blogging.
We flew out to Vegas to attend the wedding of our friends Pete & Nancy.
I love weddings. To me it is a celebration of life.
After we drove through Death Valley to Los Angeles. The desert was amazing. Really hot. We hit almost 121 degrees Fahrenheit while we were there.


Salt Flats ©Corvallo

Death Valley. The name is apt. Walking out to the Badwater salt flats nearly made me faint. Maybe I should not have carried so much gear. My 5D could not handle the heat at all and just gave me error signs. The metal on my Pentax and Hasselblad almost seared my skin.
We stayed one night at Furnace Creek Ranch (The Stovepipe Wells looked more photogenic but was full) in Death Valley.



Storm Passing ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

On or drive out of the desert, we encountered a rare thunderstorm. It was an awesome spectacle, and nature flexed its muscles a bit.
We had to pull over and manged to do so away from hills, safe from rock slides.
After things cleared up and we drove on, we encountered German tourists cleaning the road. Mind you not just in their direction, but also in the other direction. Hubby joined in, and I took pictures.
Next time we plan on covering such terrain we will spring for the SUV.
We barely made through the post storm landscape of Death Valley in our rented Chevy Malibu (otherwise very comfy car). And we were glad we had that rented Satellite phone with us.
When we finally exited Death Valley National Park we planned to drive on to LA directly, but nature had other plans. Mud slides closed down 395. Thus wee spent a night in tiny picturesque Lone Pine in front of Mt. Whitney.
After our delay, we didn't have much time in Los Angeles but we did get to hang with Anita and with Emily & Isac and everyone's dogs.



L.A. Doggies. Love the Outdoor Space. ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

We considered extending our trip so that we could drive up the coast to San Francisco, but decided against it. Good thing we did, because we returned home to a sick cat.


Sweetheart at the Vet. Dr. Frucht Rules. ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

Our kitties are all in their late teens, which is amazing. But any illness is very serious. Of course this is part of life, but it is still painful. It makes me think about beginnings and ends and the time in between.


Don't worry too much. Things will be ok. ©Nina Buesing Corvallo

I came across an affecting article about Roger Ebert who is living with the effects of cancer (in the New York Times written by Kim Severson). You can read at: www.nytimes.com. Roger Ebert has said we "spent too much time hiding from illness". He is right.
As Hank once said to me when my dad was sick, don't fight the wave, just ride it.
Terry Richardson also posted a touching video of his elderly and partially disabled mom. Find it at: www.terrysdiary.com.
Life is tough, but you have to keep at it.
You know what else is tough? Pigeons, we even saw them in Death Valley.
