Here also, some articles first published in the DezineCafe? in the early 90s.
Unfortunately, the website doesn't show the June issue yet. The article is an interview of David Hockney with illustrations regarding, initially, his research and opinions on the "optical" techniques of the western painters back as far as van Eyck's circle in 1430s.
In contrast, he finds Rembrant's magnificent calligraphic line, with spiritual if not literal homage to the
perspective-less Chinese imagery arriving in Holland of the day on every ship of the Dutch East Indies Company.
Anyway, get the June issue if you can. Of course, reading Lewis Lapham's eminently literate rants is worth the price any time. (and thanks to John for signing me up in the first place! It's the only magazine I take on paper any more!)

Every Mother's Day Weekend in the wee hamlet of Gays Mills there is a wonderful confluence of folks, old-time, Irish, Bluegrass and other oddball musicians.

An amazing collection of tales told with plain english words... but somehow put through a blender. An old favorite is "Ladel Rat Rotten Hut an tea Anomolous Woof" (say it out loud a few times...)

Q: You are working on a new book tentatively called "The God Delusion." Can you explain it?
A: A delusion is something that people believe in despite a total lack of evidence. Religion is scarcely distinguishable from childhood delusions like the "imaginary friend" and the bogeyman under the bed. Unfortunately, the God delusion possesses adults, and not just a minority of unfortunates in an asylum. The word "delusion" also carries negative connotations, and religion has plenty of those.

Jeff Chang's new book sheds light on -- and puts in context -- the contingencies of American youth who are using hip hop as a point of departure for their own generational rebellion.
