Bright, colorful paintings and murals inspired by Ukranian heritage. "Muralist, photographer, painter, music video creator... Maya Hayuk prefers to simply call herself an artist, because under that moniker she has the freedom to work in whatever medium she wants at any given time.... Etsian Tara Young met with Maya first in her Brooklyn studio and then in Braddock, PA to talk about Ukrainian crafts, drippy paintings and working to revitalize depressed communities."
, originally uploaded by Birch Aquarium at Scripps. Imagine this artwork I found on flickr on a cardboard box. Start by painting the whole box black and cut a hole for head and arms. Then paint a blue scene on front depicting an aquarium and add fish, seaweed and other decorations. Glitter might be fun and bright.

AP-GfK Poll: Working-class whites shun Dems article by the Associated Press as reported on Yahoo, has the media polling for ethnicity. Repeated theme of the article is that "better-educated whites" favor Dems and Obama, and that less-educated (stupid?) whites don't. The poll involved 1,000 random adults were chosen and interviewed on phone ... and pretty much the article only discusses the "416 whites without college degrees". So how many whites had degrees? What was the breakdown of other races? They didn't share any of that information. I'd like to know why. Was it not flattering?
Interestingly, they didn't bring up that the modern education system that is failing our kids. It isn't just high school standards that have dropped. Literacy of College Graduates Is on Decline. "It's appalling -- it's really astounding," said Michael Gorman, president of the American Library Association and a librarian at California State Univers…
I went to go see the movie You Again a few hours back. It was silly if I didn't think too much about what I was laughing about. But, the theme was bullying. Which really isn't laughable.
Ironically, Elton John has a cartoon roll in an upcoming movie and the preview was shown this evening. The sound was off due to technical difficulties so I heard someone behind me use hate speech with regards to his sexuality.
She was an adult, sitting there with her boyfriend or husband in a quite room and the only thing she said loud enough for others to hear all night was hateful and mean. She said it loud. Perhaps thought others would think she was funny?
I hope she learned something from that movie. But, as for me, I was reminded in real life, bullies don't always have it in their heart to create happy endings for the people they enjoy terrorizing.
1987 McDonald's Monopoly TV Commercial - Saw in my email today that Monolopy at McDonald's starting again. Back in 1987 I actually ate at McDonalds often enough that I still didn't win anything. These days I eat burgers few and far between. The only McDonald's burger I remember having for certain this calendar year was half of a cheeseburger out of my nephew's Happy Meal about two weeks ago before they moved back to Alaska. Oh, I did try a Big Mac Snack Wrap but it isn't great enough to get me eating beef regularly.
I read The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs by Alexander McCall Smith after a recommendation. This is one recommendation I'm pleased to have gotten. Professor Dr. Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld of the Institute of Romance Philology was such a fun character to read about. I haven't laughed too hard to read in quite some time.
When my friend recommended Sausage Dogs I didn't realize at the time that this author wrote The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency (Movie Tie-in Edition). She's the kind of reader that when she tells me to read something, I just do. I was immediately pleased to discover that Alexander Mccall Smith was the author of the books on which the HBO series I watched was based. I have so many books on my to-do list a trip to the library is in order.
