BACK TO THE PLANET OF THE APES

Many of my friends with whom I have enjoyed the convenience of cellular conversations, no longer answer when I call; they tell me I should text. The result is that I have fewer cellular conversations.

Texting is not a replacement for speech; it is in fact, a threat to spoken vocabulary. We all possess several vocabularies. The most limited of these sub-categories is Text Language which is the smallest of them all. TL is quickly replacing our reporting vocabulary, our reading vocabulary and our conversational vocabulary, all of which until recently were for most people our largest vocabularies.

The smart phone is returning us to a Planet of the Apes.

CONTINUITY

When planning an arrangement of pictures on a gallery wall the outer dimensions may be whatever they turn out be as long as the spaces between artworks is the same.

A man may wear raggedy jeans and a ten year old tee one day and a blazer the next; if his nails are always trimmed and the design of his hair or the lack thereof is always the same his social life will excel.

When the architectural presence of a new building is wrong for the neighborhood it is wrong for itself until or unless the neighborhood adapts.

The 1987 Rose Bowl

Coach Larry Marmee standing by a presentation By Lee Broom Gallery to The ASU Sun Devils. Framed in a molding shaped to resemble that of a football and covered with the same cowhide as used to make these balls, the memorabilia contained therein tells a story chronicling the most amazing event that this Arizona team can recall.

“The 1987 Rose Bowl was a college football bowl game played on January 1, 1987 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. It was the 73rd Rose Bowl Game. The Arizona State Sun Devils, champions of the Pacific-10 Conference, defeated the Michigan Wolverines, champions of the Big Ten Conference, 22-15. Arizona State quarterback Jeff Van Raaphorst was named the Rose Bowl Player of the Game.[1] This was the first appearance for Arizona State in the Rose Bowl.”
