Today is your last chance to see "a collaborative project birthed from the desire to create new imagery and understanding around what peace is, what it isn’t, and what it could be from a subjective point of reference by creating an environment open to experimenting with the ideal."

This calls to mind a particular historical beer guzzling Steve Slater-some people hurrahed but others boohahed. AIR RAGE!
What is a modern day hero? Can we compare these two? Who is your hero? Are there so many icons subversively, underground, in the air, on the air that we are lost in an oceanic blob of choices?

After scrutinizing, blaspheming, cuss, and dawn, "Blog on Linen" has arrived. Blog wrapped in swaddling media exposure, cyberspace fluid, and love is now an answer to all you Nihilists out there in search of an answer to the Art Existentialism. "Blog on Linen" is an asexual new born weighing in at the human attraction gravitational pull, that is, weight is your own personal reckoning. Now, you must wonder what happens when a blog is born, well the polite reaction would be to throw a birthday party in honor of thou art. Choosing a location for such to accomodate the local (user) and remote (server) poles of network attachment may be a fire hazard and we may overload the carrying capacity but this is blogland, landless, intangible and on cloud nine. With this said, I feel the only physical domain that can manage such an enthusiastic audience would be: Cheryl Donegan's show opening at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery. We will channel our zealous fervor to Irelands provocative, lucky booty-based impression making female. Welcome and let's all pause for a moment to wish "Blog on Linen" a very happy birth.
