DONT CALL ME! Text me baby.

The story has finally broken in a major US pub...

I really am surprised that it's taken this long for a major study to find evidence that prolonged exposure of your brain to lithium ion and little polarized chips might mutate your cells.

Anywho, text me baby - I'll keep my device at arms length.

Study: Cell Phones Could Be More Dangerous Than Cigarettes

Monday, March 31, 2008

A study by an award-winning cancer expert shows that cell phone use could kill more people than smoking, it is reported.

According to the U.K.'s Independent newspaper, the study, headed by Dr. Vini Khurana, shows that there is a growing body of evidence that using handsets for 10 years or more can double the risk of brain cancer.

Khurana — one of the world's top neurosurgeons — based his assessment on the fact that three billion people now use the phones worldwide. That is three times higher than people who smoke. Smoking kills some five million globally each year.

He warned that people should avoid using handsets whenever possible and called on the phone industry to make them safer. France and Germany have already warned against the use of mobile phones, especially by children, it is reported.

The study is said to be the most damning indictment of cell phone use. According to the Independent, cancers take at least 10 years to develop, which has influenced earlier cancer studies showing relative safety when using cell phones.

todd is my friend.
sometimes we go places, like el tigre,
and we swim there in the fresh water,
and we cover ourselves in mud.

todd introduces me to his friends like Martin Churba.
Martin Churba likes to make pretty clothes for people.
He is a "maestro de textiles." He put me in a fashion show.
i like todd's friends.

sometimes i like to be by myself.
i get to think about things and to observe nature in its natural surroundings,
like when i went for a canoe adventure.

some people might say that todd is a jew.
some people might say that i am a darkie.
i like to think of us as a couple of fruits.

the end.

The Train

i gave up my seat on the train - to an older woman. she thanked me.

i dismissed her greeting, nonchalant.

i melted - having missed an opportunity to accept and truly receive her thanks.

i noticed my body. my jacket. my shirt. my hair.

The train pulled into the station.

i lost my balance and almost fell.

Almost two months have gone by... in a rehearsal room, in tech, in previews for a stunning new show Conversations In Tusculum and in a week-long workshop for the new musical FELA!.

I now return to my regularly scheduled blogging....

Hamlet: What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god!

the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals—

and yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me—

nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.

My lord, there was no such stuff in my thoughts.

Hamlet Act 2, scene 2, 303–312

The photo above is research for a new performance Todd and I have conceived, Weigh In. We plan to transform a defunct reading room in New York’s Humanities and Social Sciences Library into a boxing arena where visitors can join performers in a mixed-media battle between accurate and inaccurate information.
