Hi Nadine, it's Brett, I thought, If you're gonna come by and and. I don't know if you're sunsets no backyards and spoke Smash and maybe watch movie One of those things but. I would like to see it. So, gimme a call when you can.

Lessons of Darkness (German: Lektionen in Finsternis) is a 1992 film by director Werner Herzog. Shot in documentary style on 16mm film from the perspective of an almost alien observer, the film is an exploration of the ravaged oil fields of post-Gulf War Kuwait, decontextualised and characterised in such a way as to emphasise the terrain's cataclysmic strangeness. An effective companion to his earlier film Fata Morgana, Herzog again perceives the desert as a landscape with its own voice.

There’s a really good massage school in Boulder—like one of the best. I could totally see me going there while you go to cooking school. We’d be roommates again—off to our respective campuses each morning, eating well, doing outdoors shit. Sounds good right?
Goat’s heads are sprouting in the yard, revealing distribution patterns and much about their structure and how they germinate. Also, the big black desert ants are collecting them like there’s no tomorrow, making long journeys across the yard, hauling the awkward objects over gravel and rough terrain. Around the nest is an abundance of spent nutlets, suggesting the ants are sprouting underground then hauling out their trash. I’d venture to say it’s their main energy source, at least at the moment.

Assignment: document the entirety of one of these exhausting journeys, from source to nest. Over boulders, through young Tribulus Terrestris forests, ending with an arrival at the entrance to the nest.

Chairs are about status, power, and control. That’s why we like them. Ask any furniture historian about the origins of the chair and they’ll gleefully tell you that it all started with the throne.

As chairs became prevalent in schoolrooms, they became a tool for teachers to control the movement of children, whose healthy tendency toward activity made them difficult to teach. Today, children in the developed world learn early that sitting still in a chair is part of what it means to be an adult. The result is that by the time they actually reach adulthood, most have lost the musculature to sit comfortably for prolonged periods without back support.
