The world is upon us.

The world is upon us.

Bothersome like a whimsical thought of what is apparent of achievement and what needs to get done. To think for a second that what you want is what we want is right. And to think of the later is too late and gone to be done just right. Let us bring flight to those that cannot fly and blind those that can already see.

For in the long run it is us that stand in the way. It is us, the leaders that carry the torch from a land far away to enlighten and then frenzy an irreplaceable interconnectedness. The gates have opened. Signals and co-opted simplicity shed these lights and are only less manly than the comfortable tunnels of Winnipeg, Canadia. Moving on and progressing are the hardest of things, more dense then of the iron, brass, and cult copper that are forged together on a daily commotion.

Let us bring flight to those that cannot fly and blind those that can already see. I’ll see you in station and we will have fun.

What is going on in Roma?

-Post-It Notes are creating a scene in the city, or namely walls of notes..
-Romas are organizing [and celebrating] on International Roma Day, April 8th : are there Romas in Roma?
-The wholesale appropriationing of art is causing some musing problems of their own amongst the local gallerists….
-Accolade infested and music collectively-based, the Accelerators return to Roma
-Sebastiano del Piombo : A Forgotten Artist Gets a Second Life in Rome
-The best pizza of all the land-Will the rise of xenophobia bring Roma back from the ashes?
-….and finally : this is what happens when President Bush visits Roma

    Arsenal Of Illusion

    weddingcakeufo.jpg

    Nearly four years after the destruction of the World Trade Center, I surrendered to a long-held curiosity and joined the United States Army. Therea€™s a popular misconception that you can walk into a recruiting station and sign up. But the American army is the most sophisticated fighting force in history and it doesna€™t accept just anyone. After a rigorous interview process and several hours studying the materials, I climbed onto the recruiting bus and headed off to basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia.

    At boot camp I learned to handle the m16, the fearsome saw, and other modern weapons. After qualifying on the shooting range, I donned night-vision goggles and stalked through the spooky corridors of the urban-warfare facility, firing by instinct at pop-up targets of swarthy enemy soldiers or sometimes a shopkeeper armed only with a bagel. After twelve weeks of training, my outfit, the 22nd Infantry Regiment, shipped out to Iraq. Two days later, I got my first taste of combat. I was on patrol near Baji when my Bradley Fighting Vehicle came under sniper fire. I pursued the gunman into a village before realizing wea€™d been drawn into an ambush. Bullets whizzed by; a rocket-propelled grenade struck me in the chest, transforming my upper body into a mushroom cloud of pink mist and ricocheting my head off a nearby wall. At this point it occurred to me that fighting the war on terror was going to be more challenging than I expected. With a click of the mouse, I went back to reboot camp and started over, humbled but not discouraged. In this mana€™s armya€"a computer game called Americaa€™s Armya€"getting killed in action is nothing more than a temporary embarrassment. [read the full article from walrusmagazine

    Did you know that most books published between 1923 and 1963 are in the public domain?

    mrmixies.png
    At least that is what Google, in reviewing Copyright renewals is finding. See Google Book Search Blog on US copyright renewal records available for download.Googlea€™s latest announcement (the topic of that post) was scraping together a 56MB XML file (zipped) containing a list of the books that were not renewed.The fact that Google is tracking such information and (presumably) scanning those public domain books for online readinga€¦is an unbelievable thing.

    Check it Twice

    Everybody loves syndicated content, right?AA I do, anyway, so it doesn’t much matter what you think.AA In that same sentiment we would like to welcome Amara into the MNP family, unofficially of course.AA Amara is a friend of the MNP fam whose content we will be syndicating across all of our blogs from time to time - so get used to it.AA If you want to check out her food/variety blog (Daily Bread) you can do so at amaraeats.wordpress.com.AA Enjoy!

    A wise man once said that ita€™s never too early to start your Christmas list. AMEN.

    a€oeThe Center for Land Use Interpretation is a research-based educational organization that produces public programs about the built landscape of the United States from its sites in Los Angeles, Utah and the Mojave desert, with an upstate New York location opening in 2006. The Centera€™s aim is to increase and diffuse information about how the nationa€™s lands are apportioned, utilized and perceived. Recent examples of their work include a two-day Tour of the Monuments of the Great American Void by bus and the exhibit Immersed Remains: Towns Submerged in America. This book takes readers on a tour through the strangely unfamiliar land that Americans live in, demonstrating that we can understand ourselves and the nation by examining the clues on display all around us, often clearly visible but ignored. Each chapter explores a different topic, from an in-depth look at Ohio (a€oethe most all-American statea€A); through scale shifts in model landscapes, exemplified in the three largest hydraulic models in the world; and law-enforcement training environments that simulate public space. Readers can dive into the hidden and enchanting world of show caves, where America is on display underground; and come up into the Great Basin, a zone covering most of Nevada, and portions of Utah, California, Oregon, Idaho and Mexico, whose network of watersheds has no outlet to the ocean. Following lines and edges, through cities, suburbs, small towns and wide-open spaces, the Center guides us upstream, toward the heart of another Americaa€"the same, but different.a€A
