The Sunday Video: Jonas Mekas

This weeks Sunday Video serves to announce To New York With Love, the forthcoming show of lithographs by experimental film maker, Jonas Mekas at Bas Fisher Invitational, an artist run alternative exhibition space currently managed by Naomi Fisher, Jim Drain, Kathryn Marks, and Agatha Wara. To New York With Love, in association with James Fuentes LLC will feature prints produced by Mekas at Columbia University. The exhibition will only be open only during Basel (December 1st – December 5th) however, in January, touched off by Mekas’ influence, the space will play host to a program of experimental films orchestrated by Kevin Arrow, Registrar at MoCA North Miami.

Here is an sample from Diaries, Notes & Sketches (aka Walden), Mekas’ first diary film:

Notes on the circus, an excerpt from Walden, a diary film by Jonas Mekas.

Walden was Mekas’ first diary film, and it was edited as a collection of images gathered between the years 1964 and 1969. Its original title was Diaries, Notes, Sketches, which was the intended name for all of his films (they would each have different subtitles), though when it became too confusing for film laboratories to distinguish between films, Mekas abandoned the practice. He still kept Diaries, Notes, Sketches as a subtitle in Walden, Lost Lost Lost, and In Between, and the name is often used to designate his entire film oeuvre. The sketches in Walden refer to various films that, edited previously, were later included in Walden: Report from Millbrook (1965/1966), Hare Krishna (1966), Notes on the Circus (1966), and Cassis (1966) all occur within the film.” – Citation.

Reception: Tues.  7-10pm (vernissage)
Dates: Dec. 1st thru 5th
Hours: 11-7 (except Thurs’s Nocturne which will also close at 10pm)

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
