Lissa Corona’s strangely engrossing (masochistic) videos

[education]

Lissa Corona is an educator in San Diego

and her videos are mesmerizing

posted by Reviewer Rob

Is it wrong that we find her clips on Vimeo psychologically appealing? At first the mind wants to turn away but then it is compelled to look again, and watch the self-inflicted abasement. It tells us something about ourselves that we must watch. Humanity on parade.

Lissa Corona is a San Diego-based artist and educator whose work explores deeply personal issues, from partnership and intimacy to emotional and physical vulnerability. She discusses the work she created for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego exhibition Being Here with You/Estando aquĆ­ contigo HERE on page six.

Rare Books 4 Sale: PORNO by Irvine Welsh signed advanced review copy

Rare PORNO, Irvine Welsh

So I’ve decided on $80 each for the two signed copies of PORNO by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh which I’m considering selling at a slight discount as a pair. One is exceedingly rare as it’s the advance-press paperback that was sent to reviewers. The other is the hardcover general market first-edition. These can be sold as a set, so the dedicated connoisseur/collector can compare and contrast any text variations that may exist between the advance-review copy and the first-edition. Both are in like-new, exceptionally fine condition. The hardcover first edition is covered in a clear mylar wrap. I’m including some related ephemera such as the email printout from the publisher’s press contact and my handwritten notes from Welsh’s book signing in 2002 at the Beverly Hills Library. Serious parties can contact me at robert@bookcabel.com. I’ll give a 5% discount for cash buyers. Enjoy!

Crowd Surfing Windansea

Some pics from yesterday. I was going to surf but got caught up shooting with the 600 and by the time I was done I said, “Forget it for today. This Saturday surf is too crowded.”
