This blog was born out of my passion for art, culture, human rights, literature, multicultural issues and the Internet. It is also a resource of where I stash & play with my words/images/tweets?&c.
One Brooklyn poet used one of my Brooklyn Rail articles as source material for his poetry (I love this!), he turned my “article about architecture…into a TV thriller through poetry” called “Made-For-TV”:
Made For TV
by Erik Von Ploennies
The grave of a KGB ruler.
His death, odd.
Designed to highest international standards.
An integral role in protocol.
A dictator telling them what not to report.
There were few examples.
A moral quagmire and politics.
It is no coincidence.
The cinematic masterpiece.
Who has heard my blogging screams on the World Wide Web? Well, these folks for one:
Art Fag City, BushwickBK, C-Monster, Eyeteeth, Flavorwire, Heart As Arena, Global Voices Online, Modern Art Notes, New York Observer, Rebel:Art, UTNE Reader, Village Voice, Walker Art Center’s Off Center,
Some people even like my tweets — UTNE Reader — I guess there’s no accounting for taste.
Then there are my thousands of photographs on Flickr, which I post with a Creative Commons 2.0 license, so that anyone can use them with proper crediting. They’ve showed up everywhere, incl. Brooklyn Rail, Business Week, UTNE Reader.
Btw, my bio on Wikipedia is a little out of date.
