Been thinking about German Expressionism some, lately.
It was a particular topic of interest, when I was schoolin'...
This is a painting by Emil Nolde.
Not sure I would exactly lump him in with the whole German Expressionist camp for any reason beyond that of convenience.
There is some overlap I guess, but he was kinda his own deal.
Woodcuts from that camp may be my favorite, on an aesthetic level, but they were all painting and experimenting with other media.
Nolde always had it, for me, with color in his painting...
I might need a museum day, soon.
This is a bit of a ramble.
Looking at art is cool...

I have been on a Portland music kick lately.
There is a distinct sound to that city, at least to my ears...
It's not genre specific.
It's an under current, a tone, maybe...
And then, here is a new bit from an old band, that just popped up.

My little sister got me a Formula 5000 pin, some time ago...
There was it and a little plastic race car in a plastic bag, from some vintage store, out somewhere...
Anyway, it is right here next to my computer. I look at it all the time, but never thought about the race series.
Here is a Formula 5000 race, at Lime Rock, 1970...

Yeah, I know...
I am not really a show guy.
But there is this one.
It seems like it is cool, from a distance...
I would really just like to go to Portland to sleep on my friends floors, maybe shoot some pool at creepy booby-bars, talk about life and drink a lot of beer...
But it seems like I could have used this show as a cover story for all of that.
You oughta go.

Lest you think I have forgotten about hot rods and have gone soft in the head, from whatever might do that to me...
Here, look at this.
I haven't seen a lot of cars that flip my noodle switch, for a while.
This was one of the AMBR contenders at the GNRS.
I like it for not exactly following the formula and being cooler for it...
