HighTimes2HighTimesOne of America’s treasures is her black community, which today is the dominant influence in American culture. The driving force behind black greatness has always been a healthy dose of spirit (Holy Spirit). But at a time when black Americans have acquired enormous resources, opportunity and material power, there has sadly been an diminishing of that true (holy) spirit — because of activism (“loud and proud”) intent on building-up the self with unholy and malevolent spirits (42 million strong). The result is a community where black gold is becoming black mold.

StreetArt2018America’s leaders are loath to protect against, or even acknowledge, the ill-effects of wireless radiation on the unborn (and born).

An unarmed black man, Jamill Jones, killed Sander Szabo, an unarmed white man, with one punch in Long Island City (8/5) — after Szabo mistakenly knocked on Jones’ car window, thinking it was his Uber car. Jones was charged with third-degree assault and released without having to post any bail. New York State law allows for perps who kill people — with one punch, to walk.

For some African Americans in New York, it seems the only thing worse than being disregarded by taxis is being mistaken for one.

KuhnLoebCo-Tsar1918
A day of hand-wringing in the US over Russian meddling in its 2016 election falls on the 100th anniversary of the murder of Russian Tsar Nicolas II  and his family by Bolsheviks, backed by American banker Jacob Schiff of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. This after the US had supported the Russian Revolution and Mr. Schiff had funded the Japanese in a war with Russia in 1905.

From the Russo-Japanese War up to and including Syria, American meddling has multiplied darkness and death. Whereas Russian meddling, in recent years, has sought to advance light and life.

GOK-NYBGThe City of New York is seeking female candidates, to honor with a statue in Central Park. We recommend the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), who spent several decades of her long and fruitful life in NYC — and as a true feminist worked hard, was excellent at what she did, and helped men to be better.

The photo is from a recent Georgia O’Keeffe talk at the New York Botanical Garden.

MarvinRand-CaliforniaCaptured1MarvinRand-CaliforniaCaptured2Those smitten by “Mid-Century Modern” will find plenty to like in “California Captured” (Phaidon, 2018), a book of photographs by Marvin Rand (1924-2009), documenting the work of architects whose buildings help mythologize a place and time.

NYBG-GOK1NYBG-GOK2In 1939, the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe spent 3 months painting in Hawaii, as part of an artist series commissioned by the Dole Pineapple Company. Two of her Hawaii pictures (out of 20 made) were used in print ads for the company. The New York Botanical Garden has recently brought together the fruits of O’Keeffe’s time in Hawaii, in a show that runs through October 28, 2018.NYBG-GOKEspecially noteworthy are the “Waterfall” paintings, which seem more personal, prefiguring O’Keeffe’s important “Black Place” paintings of the 1940s.
