which one shall it be
in this day and age
of technology
the creepy/the weird/the free
FREE-DOM of the net

that somehow one or the other
is no longer
faithful

we abuse – we use
We switch from one to the next
and its all about the SEX…

angela gegg artistIn May of 2008, there were reports that Facebook would be raising the friend limit from 5000 friends because there is less than 1000 users who have maxed out and reached the limit –> Read Full Story Here: http://techcrunch.com/2008/05/09/facebook-to-lift-5000-friends-limit/

The last paragraph however reads –> But for many people, being a friend is much different than being a fan, and the level of interaction allowed is also significantly different. And the new FRIENDS LIST feature, which allows users to classify and group friends, makes organization easier anyway. —> Which I am in TOTAL agreement with. I always said I much rather have a friend page than a fan page bc I feel it is much more personal. Given the fact that the limit has since not been raised, I finally opened a page, not by my real name of Angela Gegg, but my Art name, PROSHKA, a page that has been much needed and something I should have done ages ago –> http://www.facebook.com/proshkatheartist

Sadly I reached my 5000 friend limit well over a year ago!! And since then have had the 1000 (pending) friend request limit, the problem is though, is that most facebook users aren’t aware of the fact that A. There is a Limit and B. that there is a pending limit —> so the problem arises where people think I am snubbing them or just avoiding their requests.  It got to the point where I was receiving so many messages that I opened the page and am trying to operate from that so as to avoid the drama of social networking.

1000 pending request limit


In all honesty I would love for facebook to up the limit especially since we have so much control over our personal sites and not much control over the fan sites, but in any case I have opened the page, named PROSHKA and hope facebook figures out their limit issues sooner rather than later because lets face it people, the world of social networking is where its’ at and especially for those of us in the public eye.

Another thing that facebook is doing is opening Community Pages (without the permission of people and/or businesses) —> I know this because I was messaged by someone who tried to freind request (annoyed with me as usual) and they said that they instead became my fan. Now I automatically assumed they became a fan of PROSHKA, but when i took a look at their page (which is open to the public) I saw that this person LIKED –> ANGELA GEGG. Now I know I have never created an Angela Gegg Fan Page so was like WTF, I automatically thought someone was impersonating me and went to the page, but turns out it was a Community Page, stating —> Our goal is to make this Community Page the best collection of shared knowledge on this topic. If you have a passion for Angela Gegg, sign up and we’ll let you know when we’re ready for your help. You can also get us started by suggesting the Official Facebook Page.

After investigating the matter and reporting the page I found out that it is a facebook page and that I would have no control over this page, which is really something I am not fond of .

QUESTION: Can I edit the content on a Community Page?
ANSWER: No. When available, we update the information and profile picture based on the article for that topic in Wikipedia. At this time, there is no way for people who choose to connect with a Community Page to add their own pictures or edit the information.

So this is my Facebook Drama, my Facebook Dilemma and my Facebook Rant for the day!

It was Jackson Pollock who blazed an astonishing trail for other Abstract Expressionist painters to follow. De Kooning said, “He broke the ice”, an enigmatic phrase suggesting that Pollock showed what art could become with his 1947 drip paintings.

It has been suggested that Pollock was influenced by Native American sand paintings, made by trickling thin lines of colored sand onto a horizontal surface. It was not until 1947 that Pollock began his “action” paintings, influenced by Surrealist ideas of “psychic automatism” (direct expression of the unconscious). Pollock would fix his canvas to the floor and drip paint from a can using a variety of objects to manipulate the paint.

The Moon-Woman Cuts the Circle (1943; 109.5 x 104 cm (43 x 41 in)) is an early Pollock, but it shows the passionate intensity with which he pursued his personal vision. This painting is based on a North American Indian myth. It connects the moon with the feminine and shows the creative, slashing power of the female psyche. It is not easy to say what we are actually looking at: a face rises before us, vibrant with power, though perhaps the image does not benefit from labored explanations. If we can respond to this art at a fairly primitive level, then we can also respond to a great abstract work such as Lavender Mist. If we cannot, at least we can appreciate the fusion of colors and the Expressionist feeling of urgency that is communicated. Moon-Woman may be a feathered harridan or a great abstract pattern; the point is that it works on both levels.

To say that Pablo Picasso dominated Western art in the 20th century is, by now, the merest commonplace. Before his 50th birthday, the little Spaniard from Malaga had become the very prototype of the modern artist as public figure. No painter before him had had a mass audience in his own lifetime. The total public for Titian in the 16th century or Velazquez in the 17th was probably no more than a few thousand people — though that included most of the crowned heads, nobility and intelligentsia of Europe. Picasso’s audience — meaning people who had heard of him and seen his work, at least in reproduction — was in the tens, possibly hundreds, of millions. He and his work were the subjects of unending analysis, gossip, dislike, adoration and rumor.

He was a superstitious, sarcastic man, sometimes rotten to his children, often beastly to his women. He had contempt for women artists. His famous remark about women being “goddesses or doormats” has rendered him odious to feminists, but women tended to walk into both roles open-eyed and eagerly, for his charm was legendary. Whole cultural industries derived from his much mythologized virility. He was the Minotaur in a canvas-and-paper labyrinth of his own construction.

He was also politically lucky. Though to Nazis his work was the epitome of “degenerate art,” his fame protected him during the German occupation of Paris, where he lived; and after the war, when artists and writers were thought disgraced by the slightest affiliation with Nazism or fascism, Picasso gave enthusiastic endorsement to Joseph Stalin, a mass murderer on a scale far beyond Hitler’s, and scarcely received a word of criticism for it, even in cold war America.
