TV is a medium. but on rare occasions it is well-done, and actually worth watching .

 

i love good TV. it is not easy to find, but it is our there. i have tried to bring here some of the tv shows that left an impact on me.

 

 

You cant sell news stories that have data and cautious predictions. Where is the panic? Where is the impending doom? C'mon people , give me something to work with here…

..and as I was a yuppy marketing and advertising executive for the better part

Who doesnt love TV? the idiot box in the corner, the hypnotist that keeps us hooked up to that idelology, hooked up to the machine that makes us doubt ourselves and want more stuff. it is a drug, but like any drug it is not all bad.

i love good TV. it is not easy to find, but it is our there. i have tried to bring here some of the tv shows that left an impact on me. to some i still come back again and again (thank god for the internet) and some are actualy amost beneficial to your health.

Remember the good old days, when colored were colored, and chinks were chinks? when an honest man could make a buck from scamming the insurance company, when long hair meant you are a commie? Ah…. Nostalgia is not what it used to be."

 

Stephen fry is another breed of intellectual. He is truly curious, has a vivid imagination that carries him to unexpected, and often quite disturbed parts of the human think process, and above all – he appreciates a good laugh, a stupid pun, a knock knock joke and buzzers that make obscene noises. 
As the "bantermaster" in QI he shows one more quality that is charming. He is truly interested, which makes him truly interesting. Quite interesting."

Now that we are done with the sitcoms and dramas inside our flat TV, we can look at the art form it all started form, the real world, the three dimensional movie that was three dimensional before avatar, before colored carton glasses, when 3D was someone on a stage in front of you .

Like most of you I am comforted by the existence of a theatre in my town but I rarely if ever go. one of the privileges of being a photographer is that I do get to see these shows on a regular basis, and being in the rehearsals and work progression I get to experience these art forms almost from within, and let me tell you,
it is something else. This kind of energy is something you will not find inside your plastic framed tube

opera is basically a very Jewish thing. You can put that eyebrow back down, it’s true. Fat women shouting and always threatening they are going to die? You can't get more jewish than that… (your tiny hands are frozen, eat something for god's sake, look at you!)"

I have had the pleasure of photographing some of the older butoh dances, people who were extremely weird even before extremely weird was in style, and let me tell you that a shoot with a sixty year old nude Japanese dancer wrapped only in ceramic foil and crawling on the floor in agony is not your everyday photography work you might get.
