Everyone Set For Tonight?

Just in case we have some newbies, I'll review things for tonight.

Our east-coast friends will be live-posting during the broadcast. There will be one thread for the "party" - where everyone is welcome to contribute. All of the posting will be in the comments section. West coast folks (like me) can read along. We can even post questions along the way for clarification. This week TBone will be joining the party. He was getting lonely over there on his own. : )

Tonight, BPR welcomes Matthew who will be live-posting in a second thread as one single voice. For those who want to just follow along in a cohesive sensible manner without a lot of confusion - this is for you. Of course, most of us will be switching back and forth!

Remember to be polite and to have fun. Invite your friends!

Who will be joining us?

If the parental units don't kick me off before the show comes on at 10, I'll be here. Unfortunately, they've caught me every time, usually 5 minutes before it's set to come on. So count me as a maybe =)

<33, Alyssa

anyone want to write a paper on the minimal art of Mark Rothko (mainly comparing 'untitled' 1948 and 'untitled' 1953) for me so i can watch this show. No, just kidding. i will be on here following it though. and i will catch the re-air at 1.

Thank you Mr. Cableman!

New York had a big blizzard this weekend that knocked out my cable at home--I was actually having anxiety that I wouldn't have computer access duringing the show.

Count me IN now.

Where the HELL is my nacho dip...um...I meant chiffon?

AJ said...

jrt, we are seriously sharing a brain! I'm convinced!

I did a paper/project on Rothko during design school! That was over four years ago though so I don't remember, but funny, no?

LMAO @ a...I seriously just giggled audibly at that.

jan, I'm fresh out of wine...I bet I could whip up a mixed drink or two, and there's always beer;)

I'm going to be in and out probably...won't stay past the show cuz I'm TIRED!!

FancyPants said...

This is tough out here on the West Coast-do I blog along or wait until 10 PST? The suspense is killing me!

JRT said...

aj, i find rothko very intriguing and amazing. of course, i am a minimalist at heart, so that might explain why i like him.

a, wanna share some of that nacho dip when you find it? actually, i am eating pasta, so probably wouldn't go to well with it.

AJ said...

Yeah, I really enjoyed the work I did on him even though I tend to prefer art deco, modernism and abstract. The simplicity of his art was stunning. I'm usually drawn to compicated art such as Escher but working on something about Rothko enlightened me into the beauty of minimalism.

JRT said...

yeah, my roommate is an Escher fanatic. And his architecture design philosophy is very influenced by Escher. And I respect Escher and like his work, and other pieces like that, it just isn't my design philsophy. Don't really know how to explain it. As you probably know from studying Rothko, sometimes simplicity gets cast as something to easy or banal, but the thought process and expression that goes into his work is amazing. anyway, this is PR forum, so maybe I should get back on topic.

AJ said...

LOL! I know...in another thread I'm talking to Jan about Lost. I know what you mean about minimalism though. I think my favorite though is Frank Lloyd Wright...he was insanely amazing!

JRT said...

i know about Frank Lloyd Wright. I just went to his Taliesin West in AZ, and it was amazing. The man had such strong opinions and pushed his ideas to the maximum, and somehow they always worked. It is weird because I would actually live in his architecture, whereas going to Corbusier's Villa Savoye, I could never life there. However, I think Corbusier's house is more beautiful. Anyway, I could talk all night about this.

Back to topic so I won't feel so bad. Congrats to the final 3 and glad to see Daniel was safe.

AJ said...

Wright's design seem SO liveable! I went to Falling Water in PA ages ago and just completely fell in love. It was so eye-catching and beautiful yet so warm and inviting.

I don't know a heck of a lot about architecture, but love learning everything I can about art. I'm like a sponge...lol
