Back to School Sale

Monday, 30 August 2010

Bunkarina and the Missus were at the 99¢ Store (where everything is cleverly priced at 99.9999¢ so they don’t have to rename it) and found this great display for readin’, writin’ & rigor mortis.

Time to start boning up for test time, kids.

“I Am Eating Candy.”

Sunday, 29 August 2010

Although the book is sixty years old, Viktor Lowenfeld described the childhood stages of  perception, via drawing and painting, and included a section on the blind and deaf. Lowenfeld was very perceptive and astute in using art to measure the mental progress of young ‘uns.

“I Am Eating Candy” is the title of a clay sculpture by an 11 year old blind and deaf girl who attended the Perkins Institution for the Blind in the late 1940s. It’s from a book entitled “Creative and Mental Growth – A Textbook on Art Education,” by Viktor Lowenfeld, Pennsylvania State College, published by The Macmillan Company, New York, 1950. Here’s the full plate:

I’m tempted to scan the entire book into .pdf format… it’s that awesome.

Saturday Matinee – Buena Vista Social Club; Tito, Poncho & Celia; The Iguanas

Saturday, 28 August 2010

“El Cumbanchero.” The Buena Vista Social Club is awesome. Tip o’ the Tarboosh to Rodan for reminding me of them.

Continuing with Afro-Cubano jazz, here’s Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez y Celia Cruz, with “Quimbara.” No idea what that translates to, but I guess it’s a dance style.

This was one of The Iguanas best songs, and the video doesn’t do it justice. (Here’s the studio version w/o video. As an aside, in the live video, the bass player looks like me in my 20s, but with a better haircut. Heh.) Since The Iguanas were from New Orleans, let’s move in that direction…

New Orleans is gonna be in the news again in a couple of days, but not for the right reasons. I suggest we ignore the msm and enjoy the music instead.

Have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

How To REALLY Piss Off A Golden Retriever – Part 2

Sunday, 22 August 2010

One of these days her owner will be asleep, and Brittney’s gonna make her move. Golden retrievers are like that… always patient, always plotting. As for her owner, well let’s just say it’ll be a couple weeks before he can sit comfortably again.
