Names withheld to protect us all, but I can't resist sharing this bit of stress-o-tainment received from one artist today:

"Dear [curator] : i try to fine my DVD file in my laptop and i could not fine the file !!! but i already call the gallery in Taiwan !! and they will send you the DVD two copys !!! tomorrow !! from Taiwan !!! please make sure that you will get it ! thanks Best [artist]."

This refers a work we hope to include in THE PROGRAM that was exhibited at one of the world's biggest international art exhibitions within the last few years.

The artist is in a residency in the U.S. We had asked that the work be shipped by Ground Fed Ex and given the Video Association's account number to the artist . . . wonder what that'll run us from Taiwan.

UPDATE: We got it.

Controversial Speech by Tim Robbins at the National Broadcasters Association

Ok, this is third-hand, but much of it's confirmed at the links below.

NAB asked him to speak. Its members are tv broadcasters, cable owners, etc. Officials backstage got wind of the speech he planned to give. As the person reporting put it, "brakes were slammed, gears reversed, tires shredded." Robbins came out on stage anyway, first saying he would not be giving his speech after all; but then he spoke anyway. After the first few minutes, NAB floor agents ordered all cameras turned off. They forgot about the audio recorders.

Some video here; complete audio speech here; transcript here. I recommend at least eyeballing the whole thing or listening to the whole audio.

I don't think Robbins understands the full extent of the problem, but at least he took a whack at it.

Google News Hides Bush Impeachment Hits?

According to one source, confirmed to greater or lesser degrees by others, yesterday evening there were 2,172 hits, based on six stories on the wires. When you clicked sorted by date with duplicates included, there were 1,957 distinct outlets carrying the story.

As of 8:49 a.m. today, when you clicked sorted by date with duplicates included, there were only 49 related articles.

Explanations, anyone?

Re- Post Re- Japanese DVD Program to Teach Men Confidence

. . . by practicing staring at women for 96 minutes. Via Gizmodo.

I personally do find eye contact scary. Each person is so dam' unique -- getting to know them is usually worthwhile, but sometimes they're psycho.

At the same time, why exactly is it that the original poster described this female gaze as "staring at you angrily"?

But the comments! Maybe I'm tired, but I think they're reaching an art form? -- men are so dam' cute when they just forget about global domination (+ ok i'm pretty straight, i kinda like it when men like female "ornaments," as Muhammad put it. Re- comments, see also, e.g., those re- UroClub Makes Peeing on the Golf Course a Private Affair) (thanks, Ben!):


Are you supposed to look them in the eye? I'm having trouble with that.

Does it count if you're staring at her boobs?

speak woman! speak!

Nineteen freakin' years of that...
I'm immune.

Oh come on. That doesn't work unless it is in-person. I had a staring contest with Jessica Alba on youtube. I'm still single. Go figure

Too many people on too small of an island I tell you...

God bless the Japanese. This is amazing.

Or cater to the less stable members of society.
"Hi, I'd like you all to meet my wife Zenith. As you can see she's not the talkative type, but she's always there for me, and she's a tiger in the sack. Grrrrraaawrr."

you my friend are quite right japs are amazing

That was creepy as fuck. At least when I get the silent treatment, I'm not paying someone for it.

Worst Japanese game show ever.

what that f*ck you staring at?! got a problem b*tch?!? you got something to say?!?!
These lines are killer here in NJ, my confidence is already up

slams money on table*
Kramer: "I'm out."

They work well in many cities!
I would think especially New York on the subway!
But really if she's not gonna show me her tits or play with herself, I don't want it!

I like the blonde! She likes me....she can't keep her eyes off of me.

If you think it is creepy watching it, imagine having to be the person getting filmed for the DVD.
"I am doing what? Really? Just staring at the camera? For 96 minutes? What are guys really going to be doing with this video? Do they really need 96 minutes?"

...Two minute Jones I see

Wait a sec! Is that Carmen and Lindsay????

my confident increase by 17%, another 2 hours I will gain lv 78.

looks just like the first time i, you know.. if she says "is it in yet?" i'll freak out!

It's a still image. They just jitter it around a little.

Nice. Nice. *fap fap*

i was thinking the same

I like to think of myself as "efficient." No need to waste time on trying to accomplish impossible tasks.

I want the last 2 minutes of my life back

IM NOT ASIAN!...::blinks multiple times::

Are you sure?

Wouldn't this be awful for your eyes?
I stare at tv screens and monitors as much as the next guy, but im never focusing on just one thing for a billion hours.
Well, that's assuming they want you to be looking into her eyes the whole time.

I swear, I saw everything written on this page in Portuguese.
Ok so if I satay watching this dvd for a whole week, Iwoul gain the confidence to date a model???

::starts crying::

OH MY GOD. did you watch it til the end when she grunts? SO NOT RIGHT.

Look in their eyes? Heck, the top one's cleavage begs you to stare. Introduce yourself
But please, the loop-dissolve is obvious.

hey stop making my baby cry! you... you SUBGENIUS!!

Japan is funny.

That's the worst pron I've ever seeen.

damn..that first video made me feel guilty for staring at her rack.... i failed...

What woman..? I only see boobs...
Plus, it kind of scared me when at the end she speaks, i answered: "i wasnt looking at your boobs"

I wanted to see her naked...don't feel bad one bit.

No way! Do you live in SE Michigan? That's where all my Chaldean homies were from.

F-you! She deserves it! Let's take this outside!
(Setting you up to be the hero, bro)

It helps when their breasts are furry little balls of bliss....hence video two, no breasts of god.

Am I the only one waiting for a giant lizard to pop out of the screen?

HAHA..man Do I hate my own people,lol. Please don't hold it against me for w.e ignorant crap they do, look, or say :(
Nutbastard is already my hero, but thanks for not being some neanderthal but a sweet man with the misfortune of knowing more than one of my people,lol.
96 minutes looking at her boobs, i feel confident now!

I was actually waiting for them to burst into flames and spontaneously combust.

I never met a Chaldean before, but my negative run-in with a rather ornery Italian chick put me off exploring races for a few days.
That, and I should probably not play with Supersoakers in my girl's apartment.

I just feel horny

Well I don't think there are very many chaldeans in America. Italian chicks and most Chaldean chicks are all crazy psychos. I don't even hang out with my own kind...RUN if you see them-except me. I'm ok :)

I win. Her boobs blinked.

"NO, I'M CHALDEAN!!!!!!"

Isn't that like Iranians in NA saying they're "Persian"
BTW... The Persians found the Chaldeans masters of reading and writing, and especially versed in all forms of incantation, in sorcery, witchcraft, and the magical arts... VERY coo!
Modern day, Chaldea is southern Iraq, right?

I don't think I can really tell the difference to know whether to run away or not.
That said, I'll be sure not to run ;)
I can't guarantee that Czar will stay put though. Skiddish lil' bastid.

NO chaldeans are completely different than arabs. We don't speak arabic nor write in it. So actually it's not the same, because we are very different. Yes the main origin of chaldeans is NORTHERN iraq, not southern.

and there is no such thing as Chaldea...We are babylonians :p

Hey, my mom is an Italian chick! ;-)
As for Chaldeans, come on. Hot middle-eastern babes, without the crazy I'm-going-to-blow-up-your-pizza-place relatives. What's not to like?
The Japanesse...
Bridging the gap between a flirting glance and the pearcing gaze of a psycho.
Hmmm the left is bigger. Well actually the right is bigger... Well come to think of it, both are huge. :-)

...Babylon by Bus... Stir it UP!

This is so boring and I did for for 30 seconds. It's like watching paint dry .... only you know .... just a tiny bit less boring. Good luck to those doing it for 90 minutes :)

Marley makes bridges over timeless waters.
Like all art.

Well admittingly I kept trying to stare the Asian lady in the face. I REALLY DID!.. but I'll be damned if I could not seem to help myself form staring at her cleavage..
I got this weird urge to just bury my face in her cleavage to see if she was hiding something in there.
She's pretty!
Now the other chick, well I successfully stared her right back. Now.. I don't think it was as challenging as the Asian lady though; there was no distraction.

Hey I dig the Marley, no need to discriminate

Yes good job...We are of awesome origin...too bad now the young chaldean kids have a thing for Tupac and talking smack to Nadya and ignoring Fadi for like FIVE WHOLE DAYS!

There you go: I thought you were a non-reggae-digging-asian chick and now I know just how wrong I was.
I feel like we've done some good work here today.

Must...Ignore..Boobs...Gahhh.:Stares Down:

I'm Persian. So what?

*fake punches dobbs who 'passes out' immediately*
*reaps carnal rewards*

I'm American and I love labels just as much as the next guy, but we should probably move on.

You look like you're thinkin' of something hon...?
"Yeah... trying to remember if I paid your life insurance or not."

My problem isn't staring, it's the fact I can't get a woman to maintain eye contact with me in the first place!


0:03 oh, she really is staring at me
0:07 Must not look down
0:12 She has a cute nose
0:13 Did I just fart a little, or was that her?
0:22 She is digging a hole into my skull. oh, God, can she hear my thoughts?!?!?
0:30 I think I love her
0:39 She is judging me. Stop judging me!!!
0:45 I start crying. Am I crying? Is it because I love her so much, or hate her?
0:57 Yes, I will sign my house and car over to Heaven's Gate

bow chicka wow wow, bro.

I hear it helps if you give it a try when you are not in a dimly-lit parking lot late at night crouched between her car and a van.

Id pork their fried rice. or sushi or something I dont know.


WOW I think that is the hardest i've laughed all day.


He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.

They should have a split screen version so I don't have to try to picture them nekked.

She was staring at me? Didn't notice, I was too busy staring at the headlights as they had their highbeams on.

I'm seeking venture capital and the backing of Brian Peppers to release a 2nd edition where you stare at Brian Peppers, staring at you, for 98 action packed minutes. The DVD takes aim at restoring talking relationships with deformed midget pedophile rapists.

Any backers? Message me for more investment opportunity information.

alrite this is really confusing, i thought in japanese culture your not suppose to stare... so with these videos am i suppose to look away when shes staring at me???? "stares at ceiling", "shrugs shoulders".

Beautiful! 1984 is my bible.

Cookie for my Kool-Aid?

My point exactly! :-)

I know, it was really directed at everyone even though I quoted you... I don't want you to think I'm singling out the Persian ;c)

YouTube showed after that the start of a Japanese porno, I wonder if it is as bad as this?

Dammit, I fail.
Can't stop looking at cleavage.
Wait, I think I'm in love.

Coming up next.
Lesson 2: Women with disaproving (you're a f*cking otaku) look.
Lesson 3: Women with angry (get the f*ck outta here you pervert) look.
Lesson 4: Women smiling at you (that weirdo thinks I like him).
Lesson 5: A couple kissing.
Lesson 6: A GAY couple kissing.
Lesson 7: Staring at eye, while lying (anime, what is that?).
Lesson 8: Your boss, while he's shouting at you.
No prejudice here, I'm japanese descendent and Otaku. :P

Give ze money to Elliot Dreizen!

If Japanese men are so afraid of women they need a stare down dvd why haven't they died out as a race?

As an American male of Anglo Saxon stock I thought the point WAS to stare at the cleavage... before ravaging on. Part of the pillaging tradition!

Do you fail the test if eyes keep drifting downwards?

For some strange reason i dont feel as bored looking at the second video :)

I smell a lawsuit from that other staring girl on Youtube.

If they ever make a DVD of men, give me a shout. Sounds like an easy enough job.

I am guessing here, but obviously there is a cultural form of communication there that we simply don't do here.
I bet eye contact has a myriad of power plays associated with it and it plays a very large role in sexual conduct.
Seems like this simple kind of eye contact which I try to engage in on a daily basis with strange women on the subway is near taboo over there.
Like a woman could make or break a dude's day depending on whether or not she caught his eye and how it was done...

"THE PROGRAM": In the Code

UPDATE: New, much more detailed post here; although as of this addition, I haven't yet had a chance to add images to the new post.

As you may know, the Video Association of Dallas was the first in TX to show video art by Michel Auder, Matthew Barney, Paul Chan, Harun Farocki, Graffiti Research Lab, William Kentridge, Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler, Pipilotti Rist, Martha Rosler, and Bill Viola, among many others.

The Video Association's Dallas Video Festival is now dividing into two parts. This year for the first time, most of the video- and other media-based art you might normally find in museums or galleries will be presented in a separate, expanded series of exhibitions at Conduit Gallery. The rest of the Fest, including documentaries and other venerable varieties of video, will be presented in October.

The new, video art + other media-based art exhibition series to be shown at Conduit, called THE PROGRAM, starts July 26: 5 shows over 5 weeks, with openings on 5 consecutive Sat. nites, after-parties, etc. etc. Co-curated by me, Charles Dee Mitchell, and Bart Weiss.

Where else can you find this much exciting, recent video art and other media-based art by internationally-recognized artists -- esp. on our near-null budget? (I certainly hope never to work this hard again for negative income.)

This is not a complete listing, and all programming remains subject to change:

Guy Ben-Ner's Moby Dick and his latest, Stealing Beauty (see Postmasters gallery).

John Bock's latest, The Palms (see Anton Kern gallery).

Dena DeCola + Karin E. Wandner's five more minutes (see the Video Data Bank).

Matthew Barney's latest, Drawing Restraint 13 (see Barney's DR site or Gladstone Gallery).

Michael Bell-Smith, t.b.d. (see Foxy Production or and/or gallery).

eteam: with luck, something re- their Rhizome commission proposal, Second Life Dumpster (see their commission proposal site). I personally also loved 1.1 Acre Flat Screen, 'though it's not looking like we'll be able to show it, but you can view it on their website; just click on "videos" and scroll on what opens.

Nathalie Djurberg: her Camels Drink Water, which debut'd at Art Basel Miami just last year, and, I hope, one or more other works (see Zach Feuer Gallery). I'm pretty sure, 200 yrs. from now, if you search for what might help you both survive and forgive humanity, Djurberg's work will pop.

John Michael Boling + Javier Morales (see their site at http://www.gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogle.com).

Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung's animations featuring Al Gore as a polar bear, his Nobel around his neck, deploying solar panels against a BBQ'ing Bush (see Postmasters and Hung's site).

Cao Fei: knock on wood, her Second Life "documentary," iMirror (see Lombard-Freid Projects), which showed at the Venice Biennale, this year, and her newest piece, RMB City.

Guthrie Lonergan: net art from a favorite New Museum alum (see his site).

Shana Moulton's work takes you back to everything you thought you hated about the 80's but now "pine" for (see Country Club gallery).

Tom Moody: appealing and intriguing shorts from a former Dallasite who's shown around the world (see his site).

Meiro Koizumi's latest, The Human Opera. If I say he's the new M. Barney, that's just shorthand for, i.m.h.o., you need to see his work -- it's going to come up again (see Nicole Klagsbrun gallery).

Matt Marello: Marello greenscreens himself into the horror flick that made Charles Dee Mitchell want to be an art writer; plus, Friedrich Nietsche converses with Hogan's Heroes.

Yang Fudong's An Estranged Paradise. This wonderful early piece illumines the work he's made since (see Marian Goodman Gallery).

Yves Netzhammer: evocative 3-D animation from one of my faves from the '07 Venice Biennial (see Galerie Anita Beckers).

Jon Pylypchuk's animations with hotdogs -- not even bacon is better (see Friedrich Petzel Gallery).

Steve Reinke's Hobbit Love is the Greatest Love. Yes, he actually makes it work (see Video Data Bank).

Treewave (Paul Slocum's band) performs live (see his Tree Wave page, Dunn and Brown Contemporary, or and/or gallery).

Ryan Trecartin: A Family Finds Entertainment and Tommy Chat Just E-mailed Me. He may seem hallucino-gen-Y'd, he may even be really fun; he's also profound (see Elizabeth Dee).

Kalup Linzy's Melody Set Me Free and Ride to da Club, both totally smart + fun (see Taxter & Spengemann gallery).

Rick Silva, a.k.a. Abe Linkoln, + jimpunk + Mr. Tamale: a compilation from Triptych TV (also check outAbe + Mo Sing the Blogs: e.g., one blogger's daily psychotropic dosage, à la metal -- and more {here's Rick's site; I also love jimpunk's}).

Clemens Von Wedermeyer: compelling work from one of Europe's stars (see Galerie Jocelyn Wolff).

The main venue for THE PROGRAM will be Conduit Gallery in the Design District, where lots of great galleries are now located (go here for lists by neighborhood with url's, addresses, etc.); and our opening nite, Sat., July 26, will also be "gallery walk" nite in the Design District. The gallery walk hours will be 5-8 pm. We expect to open THE PROGRAM with Matthew Barney's new video, although that's not set in stone, and with Paul Slocum's performance starting around the time the gallery walk winds up (plan to end up back at Conduit).

Then, for our after-party that nite . . . remember Apples in Stereo, whose lead appeared on The Colbert Report with his paean to Stephen? And the inestimable Danette Dufilho, Asst. Dir. at Conduit and Dir. of the Project Room there? Well, her hubby, John Dufilho (of Deathray Davies fame), plays drums in the Apples, and the Apples are playing Big D that very nite, at one of our fave venues, Sons of Hermann Hall, starting after Paul's performance. And strictly betw. us, the Apples might show up at Conduit for Paul's show; and we might be handing out coupons for a discount to get into the show at Sons . . .

And, believe it or not, there's more spectacular stuff in the works! As well as a panel discussion at the Dallas Museum of Art on Sun., August 10 at 1:30 pm and evening screenings in Fort Worth on August 5 and 12. I'll post more details about the schedule as they're firmed up.

I've been working really hard on this, so pls cancel any and all conflicting oblgs, ink us in for the 5 consecutive Sat. nites starting July 26 plus, + tell your friends. (And by the way, if you can't make the opening nites, the shows will remain on exhibit or available for viewing until it's time to install the next week's work.)

Thanks of course to the artists, galleries, and others already mentioned above. I'd like also to go ahead and thank Suzanne Weaver at the DMA for her advice to me over the years, which greatly helped me educate myself, as well as for her support in arranging for our panel discussion to take place at the DMA; the folks at Electronic Art Intermix (esp. Josh Kline), whose advice and screening room have also been invaluable to me; Paul Slocum, who has also generously shared his advice, esp. regarding new media artists; Danette Dufilho and Nancy Whitenack at Conduit, not only for providing us a great space for free but also for their advice, time, and effort in many areas, all of which have been and will continue to be essential to bringing this thing off; volunteers such as LeeAnn Harrington and Emily Ewbank; my co-curators, Bart Weiss and Charles Dee Mitchell, from whom I've also learned so much; and last but not least, our presenting organization, the Video Association of Dallas, which has for over twenty years been one of the foremost proponents of video as a creative medium (please join and support it!).

Until I do a new post based on more definite info, check back here 'cause it's easier for me to just update this post.

Bored Noble Gasses et. Al.

Pls forgive, been otherwise occupied the last wk; + now can't resist this.

Glad I'm carbon-based (and that's not all I learned from Star Trek).
