Obama seeking Congressional approval to sell $60 billion in arms to an Islamic state with an absolute monarch. (NY Times Article) I can’t even believe my eyes when I read that. I keep thinking there must be something I’m missing. There’s no way that’s possible.
In the center that’s Garfield exactly how he looked in 1980 and exactly how he looked in 2000. Based on those images I extrapolated how he will look in 2020 and 2040 if the change continues regularly. E.g. from 1980 to 2000 his eyes went from perfectly round circles to ovals. And look how big his feet got! So I just continued the change. I also predicted backwards.
Atlas Sound – Attic Lights (live @ Cemetary Gates). It gets epic starting around 4:15. There are a couple other songs to the set including “Walkabout.” http://pitchfork.com/tv/#/episode/2484-atlas-sound/1/
New York Times article on the rise of lower caste (Nadar) people in southern India. Interesting comparison to the people of the same caste in the north.
“While in the south lower caste members concentrated on economic development and education as a route to prosperity, in the north the chief aim of caste-based groups has been political power and its spoils. As a result India’s northern lower castes tend to be less educated and less prosperous than their southern counterparts.”
I like this too:
“Because these movements arose before independence and the possibility of elected political power, they focused on issues like dignity, education, and self-reliance, Mr. Varshney said.
Nadars created business associations to provide entrepreneurs with credit they could not get from banks. They started charities to pay for education for poor children. They built their own temples and marriage halls to avoid upper caste discrimination.”
You can spend your time protesting and marching on city hall or you can RISE UP.
I’m including a stack of Bear and Fox comic books as my art for the MiraCosta Art faculty show. When I dropped them off I had to write down the info for them. Name, title, medium, value, insurance value. I chuckled when I got to the part about “value” of my “art.”
