W.C. Fields – The Diner Sketch – YouTube.

“…Northern friends – anyone notice a very peculiar word about halfway through this sketch?…”

Distinctively…. “qallunaaq”
and not a bad pronunciation to my ear…
for Hollywood
especially at that date…
Distinctively…. at 4:19
and not a bad pronunciation to my ear…
for Hollywood

Then W.C. Fields repeats it and says
“… I haven’t been called that for two days…”

“…To her colleagues at the college where Kublu works, she is, we hope, an equal, with a professional competence extending beyond her particular role as instructor of interpretation and translation. To her students, she is a role model, one who has attained a balance between two worlds. To herself . . . well, she knows she can never be the kind of Inuk her elders were, but, with all due respect, she doesn’t want to be. And she never could be a “qallunaaq” (white person). …”

“….In the last interview before her death, close to the time of these photographs, Patricia Newcomb, her friend and press secretary, remembers that Marilyn pleaded unsuccessfully with the reporter to end his article like this:

“What I really want to say: That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody: stars, laborers, Negroes, Jews, Arabs. We are all brothers.

Please don’t make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe.” …”

“…If there was ever a time to use the term jaw-dropping, this might very well be it. Because while we’ve seen some amazing footage and even more amazing pictures of supercells and other spectacular weather phenomena, this (GoPro?) time-lapse by the storm chasers at Bashunters Chasing is really something to behold.

At two minutes long, it won’t take you very long at all to sit down, click the fullscreen button and get a serious dose of respect for the power of nature….”

2012 Call For Submissions SONIC GEOGRAPHY: exploring Space & Sound

2012 Call For Submissions SONIC GEOGRAPHY: exploring Space & Sound
Deadline November 15, 2012
Categories: Transmission Art/Radio Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Interactive Installation Art, Locative Media Art

Go to for full information and on-line application

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme SONIC GEOGRAPHY: exploring Space & Sound for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2013 programming in Toronto, Canada.
The NAISA Space is located in a 100 year old building originally constructed as a repair barns for the city’s streetcar trollies. The sound of these trollies over the past 100 years has become a signature of the Toronto soundscape. In recognizing this important local milestone NAISA is asking artists to consider sounds that speak of place and that help identify communities.
Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme of SONIC GEOGRAPHY: exploring Space & Sound. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works for performance, gallery exhibit, screening, webcast or audio stream, radio broadcast, network or translocal performance, mobile experiences and any other emerging formats that include sound as a primary element. Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your audio by midnight on November 15, 2012. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works chosen for presentation will receive an artist fee.
