R. Land is joining seven other artists for Art Created for Pirates by Pirates, an exhibit that opened at the Plaza Theatre May 6.
Eyeball Skeleton: "As preteen rockers from Baltimore, these little kids' first record, No. 1, is one of my favorite rock albums of this century."
Shut Up Little Man!, Raymond and Peter: "Although they've been dead for years, recordings of their profane, drunken rants re-emerge every month or so from my CD pile and my heart is filled with the old sweet sounds of the family I never had."
Geography of Nowhere: The Rise and Decline of America's Man-Made Landscape, by James Howard Kunstler: "Affected me profoundly since I first read it 15 years ago. A book about how greed, the automobile and terrible city planning have led our society away from a connection with its past into a future of suburban nothingness."
Florida back roads: "After being away for years, I recently returned for a two-week sabbatical into 'the real Florida.' To hell with the 'big' cities (Orlando, Miami and Tampa), the interstate system and Dizzy World. Treat yourself to a kingdom of swampy state parks, old state roads lined with fruit stands and boiled peanuts, historic landscapes, spring-fed rivers and more reptiles and amphibians than Jurassic Park. No place like it!"
Ross McElwee — Sherman's March, Time Indefinite, "Six O'Clock News," etc.: "If you ain't down with this guy's particular brand of documentary filmmaking, you might be an asshole."
scanfulton.com: "Tune in and learn about more crazy stuff going on in our beloved city than any local news station or blotter can ever tell."
