Ghost of Gertrude Stein channeled at UN

You probably heard the sound bite, but it's better than that. Yesterday at the U.N. General Assembly Hugo Chavez spontaneously composed some modernist poetry while bashing Bush and also seeming to trash any chance Venezuela has of a rotating seat on the UN Security Council:

"The devil is right at home. The devil. The devil himself is right in the house. And the devil came here yesterday. Yesterday the devil came here, right here. Right here. And it smells of sulphur still today, this table that I am now standing in front of. Yesterday, ladies and gentleman, from this rostrum, the president of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer to as the devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world, truly as the owner of the world."

It is kind of beautiful, isn't it?

Nearly-Yearly Failure Attempt (it's an acronym)

Fall has just begun and we're already suffering bouts of art hysteria. We broads need to take a sea cure, or at least a spa day. Our quaint displays of our wares are safely hung on their respective white (or not) walls, and at least one of us has made great progress in perusing (okay, scouring) ye olde blog-o-spheare in search of civilized discussions on the topic of our show(s). Why we would ever subject ourselves to such a wringing out of our emotions is a private matter. However, we will say that the attendant roller coaster ("fearless", "terrible", "fascinating", "heavy-handed", "thought-provoking", "pretty lame", et cetera) has left us the worse for wear, just when we need our energy for grant-rejection-solicitation season.

Whatever you do, just don't ask us for a letter of recommendation!

Happy Labor Day Weekend

Dearest Reader(s),

It's September! Which means summer and all dreadful summer-related weather is over! And we here at BS couldnt' be happier. Now that the temperature has finally dipped low enough to require the occasional sweater, we feel a renewed sense of energy and purpose. While the thought of enduring the sight of flip-flops and shorts until the end of October fills us with some anxiety, we will get past this, knowing that it is in fact, cold enough to wear boots.

Thank you for bearing with us and expect some actual content by mid-September.
