Two non-Xena photos
Taken from the Entertainment Weekly review and devoid of that shameful B+ rating, Time magazine lets the qworld know about WHOOSH! We have better company this time, being reviewed with www.jodi.org ("The Rules" obviously didn't make the Time cut), and 5 computer games.
WEBSITES JODI www.jodi.org Don't attempt to adjust your browser. Jodi is supposed to look that way. The blinking green gobbledygook, which at first seems to be a software meltdown, is actually an abstract work that is uploading modern art into the digital era. For the techno-savvy, a peek at the page's programming language reveals a bomb painted in ASCII art--letters and numbers arranged to create a picture. The rest of the piece, splattered with familiar computer icons and seemingly intentional error messages, may be harder to grasp, bearing little resemblance to most art on the Net. Indeed, Jodi's creators, Dutch artists Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans, still receive complaints and tips on how to fix the screen clutter. Their newest work, part of a group show celebrating the Mac Classic, is showing offline at a New York City gallery. Can the Museum of Modern Digital Art be far off? WHOOSH! JOURNAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF XENA STUDIES www.thirdstory.com/whoosh/ Whoosh is the sound of Xena's chakram--that metal discuss-shaped weapon--flying through the air. For nondevotees of TV's Xena: Warrior Princess, it's also the sound of this monthly E-zine's obsessive content--academic articles, gossip column, thesis-size episode synopses, an Encyclopedia Xenaica--flying over your head. But even fans who aren't "hardcore nutballs" (one encyclopedia entry) should appreciate the site's camp, Xena-worthy humor. [snip]
