Happy Holidays

“I seem to be having tremendous
difficulty with my lifestyle."

During theses next holiday days I'm gonna take a break from diligently learning too much Astronomy, Science, Cosmology, Physics, Astrobiology and other cool (The Great Courses) space stuff (you see, there's a certain order I am learning all this stuff), and I will be enjoying theses other neat, super-fun The Great Courses releases:

  • My Favorite Universe
  • The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries
  • New Frontiers: Modern Perspective on Our Solar System
  • Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for Non-Scientists, 2nd Edition
  • Impossible: Physics beyond the Edge

I share this information because if you take delight or are curious about science, the universe, physics, astronomy, our solar system and other cool space stuff, then do yourself a favor and check out these DVDs. Make sure to also get your hands on the accompanying guidebooks for each individual release - they will make absorbing this information a delightful experience.

StarTalk is a program I enjoy a little too much. 

Science, pop culture and comedy collide on StarTalk.
Actually, do yourself favor and immerse yourself in watching StarTalk right now: it is too much fun!

What follows are two of The Great Courses DVDs I find immensely enjoyable.

Total Perspective Vortex

The Great Courses: Overview Effect

Space and time. Time and space.

Journeys in Space and Time.

Spacetime has always fascinated me. As far back as I can remember, space-time continuum has done an excellent job at stimulating my surreal pop mind.

Some of my favorite songs by PJ Harvey: YURI-G (Ride Of Me, 1993) and electronic, industrial songs (and albums) by haujobb: DISTANCE (Solutions for a Small Planet, 1996), Steril: DISTANCE (Transmission Pervous, 1995), Forma Tadre: LE MUS√ČE DES APPAREILS (Automate, 1998) + CELEBRATE THE CULT (Navigator, 1997), and Individual Totem: NEW GENERAL CATALOGUE (S.E.T.I., 1996) have managed to seep into my spirit and nestle itself into my subconscious, and as time went by, my thirst for knowledge, love for the cosmos began to flow through my blood and illuminate my art. 

I kinda have a habit of drawing and painting our planet and the universe in a lot of my art. It's actually quite prominent in my video art pieces. I was going to go somewhere really interesting with this... but I figure it is best right about now I let the following photos take center stage:

Remove Before Launch

“Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggling big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space. Listen....It's just so big that by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy...”
