Please bear with me while I clean up this site. If anyone wants to make a banner for me, rock! I'll rotate them until I finish a new one. Banner dimensions are 900 x 175. My color palette is what you see now but I'm open to whatever you want to make up. And of course I'll give a shout out if I use it. Thanks, yo!
Mel Gibson is walking down this road right now. Ay yi yi. What a public relations disaster. I mean, we knew dude was crazy. But like, I didn't think anyone could top the Tom Cruise train wreck. I guess I was wrong. All fanatics of any sort are cuckoo for coco puffs.
To all the nice people who link to Hustler of Culture, please update my URL to http://www.hustlerofculture.com. And dump the old hustlerofculture.typepad.com addy. Thank you for your continued support and for helping me out with this OCD issue. Peace out.

Neil Folberg, former student and colleague of the late Ansel Adams, is widely known for his large and medium-format color photographs that infuse landscapes and “built environments” with great drama and beauty. Born and raised in the U.S., Folberg has lived with his family in Jerusalem since 1976. In this new series and exhibition of compelling black-and-white night images, Celestial Nights, the ancient land and skies of Israel are offered to the viewer as mystical points of entry and departure. Folberg emphasizes the singular and poignant presence of objects against the backdrop of the infinite. His photographs describe and underline places where the spiritual is at once near, imprinted in the forms of the arid landscapes, and far away in the dark, starlit recesses of space.
