He looks up to Ulugh Beg, the grandson of Tamerlane, who is remembered in the history books as a conqueror, not an astronomer. Back in the 14th century, Ulugh Beg defied obscurantism by building an observatory on a hill in Samarkand. His son and a group of religious leaders sent him to Mecca and got him killed on the way back..
It was assembled with screws, a cordless drill and a hammer in approximately 45 minutes. Yes, 45 mins from start to release of chooks. I plan to put this up as a little video when I get the chance.. Contrary to popular misconception, this wasn’t Ferrara’s debut feature. But it was the first time he perfectly fused the avant garde influences of Michael Snow and Stan Brakhage with his urge to be commercially successful. He’d tried the film school artistry route with Could This Be Love, a savage indictment of the mean spirited middle class, and gone for the money with his porn flick 9 Lives of a Wet Pussy (hey, don’t knock it: Porn was big box office business, and even Wes Craven followed Last House on the Left with a skin flick)..
Dr. Seuss would have loved to be a part of this dialogue for change. In fact, Ted Geisel himself said, “It’s not how you start that counts.

I think when I first started after coming out of Mulberry, we had a difficult period, it was quite shocking. Having come through that, I felt I was really lucky to have the opportunity to do something new, halfway through my life. Something completely different.
My older brush always had a problem with grime buildup in the charger and at the end of the handle; this is gone as instead of a hole to set the handle into there is now a flat base with a small plastic pin. This change is much appreciated; a quick rinse followed by a wipe with a towel to dry the handle is all that is necessary to keep it clean. The base will be much easier to clean if it does get dirty as well; the hole the old handle set into was difficult to clean well..
