R.I.P. Dr. Donda West





Kanye West's mother dies

In the most epic year of Kanye's life he loses a woman who was not only his mother, but his manager, protector, and closest confidante. It's incredibly sad.

the final episode



With all this writer's strike business I can only hope that the writer's of Weeds are out for a very very long time, or--better yet--that they try to break the picket line and are all beaten to within an inch of their lives by the strikers.

That is how much I hate that show now. Season 3 is like waking up one morning to find your partner cheating on you in your own bed, while you're still lying there. It hurts...real bad.

on the other hand, I wish the writers of LOST and Dexter a speedy resolution.

RIP Lady Jaye



(genesis and lady jaye in happier times)

(from Brooklvn Vegan....)

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and her reactivated Psychic TV aka PTV3 are terribly sad to announce the cancellation of their November North American tour dates. This decision is entirely due to the unexpected passing of band member Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge.

Lady Jaye died suddenly on Tuesday 9th October 2007 at home in Brooklyn, New York from a previously undiagnosed heart condition which is thought to have been connected with her long-term battle with stomach cancer. Lady Jaye collapsed and died in the arms of her heartbroken "other half" Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.

Being overwhelmed by the enormity of their loss, Lady Jaye's significant other, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and the other surviving band members of Psychic TV/PTV3 are not able to properly meet the demands of touring and performance. Obviously, her absence onstage , the conspicuous loss of her unique charisma, music and humor would be an unbearable emotional reality to confront night after night.

The group, who have been touring to promote their first studio album in 12 years, will announce future plans after an appropriate period of mourning. [Genesis Breyer P-Orridge]


going with your gut


Through Analysis, Gut Reaction Gains Credibility
By CLAUDIA DREIFUS (from NY Times)



Two years ago, when Malcolm Gladwell published his best-selling “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking,” readers throughout the world were introduced to the ideas of Gerd Gigerenzer, a German social psychologist.

Dr. Gigerenzer, the director of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, is known in social science circles for his breakthrough studies on the nature of intuitive thinking. Before his research, this was a topic often dismissed as crazed superstition. Dr. Gigerenzer, 59, was able to show how aspects of intuition work and how ordinary people successfully use it in modern life.

And now he has written his own book, “Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious,” which he hopes will sell as well as “Blink.” “I liked Gladwell’s book,” Dr. Gigerenzer said during a visit to New York City last month. “He’s popularized the issue, including my research.”

Q: O.K., let’s start with basics: what is a gut feeling?

A: It’s a judgment that is fast. It comes quickly into a person’s consciousness. The person doesn’t know why they have this feeling. Yet, this is strong enough to make an individual act on it. What a gut instinct is not is a calculation. You do not fully know where it comes from.
