Christmas Tree out of Tins

Dear Readers,

Over the years I’ve collected many tins of all kinds. This year I wanted to use my Christmas tins as decoration. So I thought II’d try to turn them into a Christmas tree. After 2 attempts where walls of tins came tumbling down, with major racket and clanging on my wood floor, I got it. Neighbor Marci took some great photos. This was my favorite. Note there is one New Years tin in the mix, and of course an Angel on the top!

See blog for photo!…

The Quizzical, Hopefully not a Turkey

Musea Art Quiz

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

Since Mickey Mouse, almost all cartoon characters have had 4 fingers (one thumb and 3 fingers) instead of 5 like us 3d characters. Seems that is easier and faster to draw which saves the animators money.

OK but problems do arise. For example is cartoon land based on the number 8 system instead of a number 10? We will leave that pondering for another time. But here is your question about a… Continue

Tins!

Dear Readers,



Somewhere along the line, I began to collect tins- decorative tins, English tins, collectible tins, all kinds of tins. Living in an efficiency apartment, a small efficiency, they began to take up room, then more room, then THE room.



Lately I've been able to go through them, save favorites and put aside those I could part with. Turned out there were about 2-3 hundred in all sizes that I could part with - without taking away any favorites.



I placed… Continue

Quatros from July 2014

Quatros (7/14)
QUATROS

Door lit
from within

when you leave the Earth
the stars stop twinkling

star maps
voyage paths

white out stars
black ink space

What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/23/booker-prize-2014_n_5613062.html?ir=Books



This is not a book prize, this is a prize for novels - a type of literature that a lot of writers are not interested in. The mainstream has decided to wipe history clean of its real recent literary golden age of zines. Not only were they the best writing, but they… Continue

Biological basis for happiness?

Biological basis for happiness?



This is speculation, but it seems likely that happiness may be something naturally selected for.

For example we feel happy after we eat, after sex, around newborn babies and cute kids, etc.

That would support eating enough, procreating, and raising children.

Sayings of Editor Art (another set)

Sayings of Editor Art (another set)



Don’t predict problems just to avoid new ideas; I can predict fixes to overcome them.



Broadway seem to be shifting away from legitimate theater and towards musical revues for tourists.



Don’t you think the other side knows that the quickest way to drain this country is to keep it in perpetual war – which drains it’s young people, resources, spirit, and standing in the world.



We are locked into thinking all solutions… Continue
