“Then this blonde, about 19, with rimless glasses and a smile walked up. The smile never left. “I want to fuck you,” she said. “It’s your face.”

“What about my face?”

“It’s magnificent. I want to destroy your face with my cunt.”

“It might be the other way around.”

“Don’t bet on it.”

“You’re right. Cunts are indestructable.”

As time and age distill me, i am fortunate to have people in my life who speak their minds and are unafraid of hurling themselves into new experiences. Bright pops of color amid a grey landscape.

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"

I'm slightly in awe of artists -specifically sculptors- who embrace technicality in their work. I've met a few over the years and they appear to have a similar way of working things out: part artist, part mechanical engineer.

One such artist is Reuben Margolin. Based in the Bay area he creates kinetic wave sculptures. He utilizes materials ranging from wood to plastic piping to salvaged objects. Truthfully a still image doesn't do his mesmerizing work justice. His intricate sculptures range in size and he explores elements and aspects of nature such as tidal current or how a drop of liquid behaves as it hits a body of liquid. The video below give a brief glipse at how he creates and his workspace.
