some pics I took today

Friday Dec 29th, 2006, I was walking from work(11:10am) to go downtown to renew my state ID. At this point in time primitive forms of plastic digital IDs are still needed in order to travel via airplanes(?)---i am going to NY and Puerto Rico in January as well as to Dallas in February. Anyways enjoy the images below. I enjoy existing at this section of the timeline.

my new video

Dream, Sept. 8, 2006
digital video with sound
Miguel Cortez, 2006

Inspired by a dream I had on that day. I posted the blog text on Sept. 8, 2006 and decided to create a video about it. Below is the text from the video:

I woke up today at about 5am with a weird vivid dream. In the dream I was at work and our building was going thru some evacuation procedure so since I work on the 5th floor we had to walk down the stairs but when we got to the 3rd floor a group of us noticed the stairway and floor had changed since the last time we walked down. Someone said it was because of the new Indian owners and it had to do with Bolly wood. So we had to go down a different route and upon walking thru some corridors and down more stairs we came across this huge room; the first floor I assume. And in this room there were people sleeping but sleeping stacked on top of each other; inside mounds of earth, like mini-hills and their bodies were inside except for the head and one on top of another with some space in between each. And on the floor was about 2 feet of water with feces and urine, so in order to get to the exit we had to walk thru it. And when I walked several feet I woke up...looked at my cell phone, four fifty eight am.
