2nd SCREENING ROOM at TSL Jan. 2015

January 14th, 2015

TSL has expanded our programs by adding a 2nd SCREENING ROOM at TSL. This space gives us more opportunities to present more movies and special events. We have a host of independent movies that we like to screen and the new space does just that.
Stop in check in and spend sometime at the movies—many spend an afternoon with us on as Saturday or Sunday—it is a perfect place to take time and enjoy the work of new moviemakers or some classics.

TSL also has a cafe’ where you can have a conversation, check your i-pad/pod/i-phone (we have wifi) or whatever you like to use to stay connected to the universe—we do recommend that you join TSL become a member and support our space.

We are the place where you can get lost in time and space be it at the movies or the MET opera or the National Theater of London or the Bolshoi Ballet—it is a great vacation.

Moments . Mussmann

December 20th, 2014

Moments come and go. Moments float across the mind like a skater on a pond of ice. Spinning figure 88888’s making signs of infinity in the folds of my memory. Remembering this and that sliding to and fro in the row boat of time. Hello Prufrock—do I dare descend the stair or do I stop time put it under glass like pressed duck and eat it.

Thinking about World War I

November 30th, 2014

Thinking About World War 1. Eugene Debs said the following in 1921.

“As we have said, the bankers are for bullets—for the fool patriots that enlist at paupers’ wages to stop the bullets, while the bankers clip coupons, boost food prices, increase dividends, and pile up millions and billions for themselves. Say, Mr. Workingman, suppose you have sense enough to be as patriotic as the banker, but not a bit more so. When you see the bankers on the firing line with guns in their hands ready to stop bullets as well as start them, then it is time enough for you to be seized with the patriotic itch and have yourself shot into a crazy-quilt for their profit and glory. Don’t you take a fit and rush to the front until you see them there. They own the country and if they don’t set the example of fighting for it, why should you?”

THE BOX by Mussmann

November 22nd, 2014

The box.
They put some in a box.
Why put some in a box?
Was some safe there?
Were we safe with the some there in the box?
or was the box a commodity?
The box had a lock.
The box had a door
The box had a key.
The box had a bed and beyond.
Who would live in the box?
Would it be a man or a rat?
Would it be a mother. father. brother. sister. or Chelsea Manning?
Tell the truth Chelsea and it will not always set you free.

Mary Wille

November 16th, 2014

She was hard pressed—like cider.
She was difficult—like weather.
She was exact —-like crystal.
She was a victorian— Mary Wille.
Now when I look back what do I see?
Outlines–edges–shadows—her life her remains—what’s left? what counts? What is remembered?
Hands. Quilts. Pies. Dresses. Corsets. Tears for Frank. Grieving for what is lost. Time spent. Time measured.
Mary Wille Mary Wille– she said little prayers, she held her purse, she loved God, and more. Where is she now? Is she quilting or crocheting little thread around hankies as she watches our life from afar.

EVIDENCE by Mussmann 11-13-14

November 13th, 2014

Evidence was hard to find….to locate.
Life was difficult. It was tricky…this looking…this locating…it was not so easy to see the particular…all had become so much alike. We were merging—had war done this to us? Or was it civilization or globalization or democracy?? What happened to us?
She asked.
She listened… but answers were not forthcoming. Silence as noise was a reality. Marshall Mcluhan was first to see the globe as the village. It just took time to get there.
Just like it took time to learn to dance or say words—and so on.

George Bernard Shaw on Democracy

November 10th, 2014

I have been working on a World War I project and have looked at GB Shaw’s Heartbreak House.
The prologue has a nice few sentences on Democracy so says GB SHAW: “From what is called Democracy no corrective to this state of things could be hoped. It is said that every people has the Government it deserves. It is more to the point that every Government has the electorate it deserves; for the orators of the front bench can edify or debauch an ignorant electorate at will. Thus our democracy moves in a vicious circle of reciprocal worthiness and unworthiness.” Shaw is a brilliant writer—I can aspire to be like him but shall not live so long to fine tune my own dance with words. As we approach the eve of Armistice Day 11-11-18 on the eleventh hour the Great War ended.

November 2014

November 9th, 2014

The month says one thing and is another.
The letters spell N O V E M B E R but the climate has changed.
Some say yes and some say no to the change in the weather.
Some deny it.
Some doubt it.
Some decry it.
Some just go on like the cats and dogs they eat and wag and check for a mouse in the grass or a rabbit in the hedge.
They move on as we shout at one another and do nothing that will keep the rabbits running and the mice mousing.
