TimeTable of History: Arts and Entertainment, 1993-1994 Edition
TimeTable of History: Arts and Entertainment, 1993-1994 Edition (Xiphias) is a complete mish-mash – some scholarly information mixed in with nonsense (i.e., Raymond Carver listed under “Poets” because he was married to the poet Tess Gallagher. Huh?). Look under painter Larry Rivers and a picture of Hans Hoffman appears – the link being that Rivers studied with Hoffman. There were also just plain stupid things: “…his life was cut short when he died,” written about William Harper. Our favorite was clicking on the word “egoiste,” which brings up a Chanel perfume commercial! No exact dates are given for topics. No names or synopses are given when watching videos so you have no idea of who’s talking. We could go on and on, but why bother? This is a truly odd disc.
