"Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened."

§ Hello & Welcome
I build bespoke websites. I am the father of two incredible daughters. I play rock guitar. I love martial arts - especially Capoeira. I love jazz, blues and heavy metal. I read inordinate amounts of politics, history, philosophy and science fiction. I plan on writing at least one novel before the flame goes out. I occasionally wear red shoes with articulated toes to the horror of my family.
Quite possibly the finest metal album of 1983 slipped through a wormhole in space and landed in 2010. It's the first perfect metal disc since Metallica's "Master of Puppets" or Slayer's "Reign in Blood". Seriously it's that good.

A stunning read about the Indian Wars in America, and how the most fearsome tribe, the Commanches, held off the might of Western Civilization for a number of generations.
