Anonymous yet personal, this Blog chronicles
the daily events and musings of Jim.
It provides an easy way for his friends and family to check in on him,
and serves as a online repository for his random
thoughts, kaleidoscopic flashbacks, and writings on an array of diverse topics.
“Deconstructing Jim” is simply here to
entertain you, but not intended for college credit.

S.K. Thoth

Here is a very interesting 42 minute documentary Directed by Sarah Kernochan. The movie won an Oscar in 2002 and is about a homeless street performer and composer named Thoth. Thoth (b. 1956) is completely dedicated to his art and in the film gives inspired public "prayformances" of his work in New York's Central Park and on Wall Street. Thoth has created his own unique brand of music, mythology, and an imaginary fantasy land he calls "Festad."
