A Human/Turtle Encounter

Posted in Now Showing on September 9th, 2010 by nao

I found a little turtle on my lawn, it wasn’t moving I thought it was dead. I put it in a shoe box. I thought s/he was dead

I soon found out that turtle was very much alive, as it slowly tried to escape! I forgot to ask his/her PGP.

I took the turtle down to the river bank and gave him/her a piece of organic frisee from my garden boxes.

It turns out that the turtle doesn’t want to have anything to do with my pathetic bourgeois attempts to connect with nature!

I can sympathize with her/his perspective.

My little friend can smell the future.

Oh yes my friend seems to know what to do!

Poor little guy must have been dehydrated!

The turtle disappears into the brackish waters of the Hudson River.

OK, this is the part, you may not believe. The turtle swam back, poked his/her head up and said thanks and goodbye to me.

Is it bravery or familiarity that spurs on the turtle?

Just another day living on the mighty Hudson River.

Work of Art viewing party guide

Posted in Now Showing on June 3rd, 2010 by nao

How to get the most out your viewing pleasure: It has come to my attention that many of my friends don’t have cable television and many don’t even have televisions! And so it may be necessary and desirable to sprout some official unofficial viewing parties for
Work of Art: the Next Great Artist, premiering on
Bravo, Wednesday, June 9th at 11 PM (EST) and 8 PM (PST).

Here are five fun things to do:

1. Follow my twitter feed (www.twitter.com/naobustamante) for real time snarky comments during the show.

2. Buy a t-shirt (www.naobustamante.com/magic.html). You’ll want a cool, au courant item of clothing to wear to the party and claim your allegiance. Remember, I can’t sell out, if I don’t make money.

3. Encourage your friends to bring mobile computing devices to start conversations online on Bravo’s website you can start new topics or respond to others (http://boards.bravotv.com/index.php?showforum=127).
Other notable forums may be found at www.stretcher.org and www.artfagcity.com

4. Post any interesting related links that you find to my public facebook site: www.facebook.com/naobustamante

5. Why not make it a themed potluck? I like an “Apocalyptic Luau.” Always a classic…
