It’s like a giant brain-sucking leech. I want one.
Oh wait…

FIBONACCI DODECAHEDRON Rafael Araujo

Rafael Araujo‘s work blows me away considering it’s hand-drafted and not computer-generated (unless he traced it and hand-lettered it). Either way, it’s killer manual drafting, and some day I’d like to talk to him about it.

[Confidential to R. Araujo – I saw what you did there. – Bunk]

The Saturday Matinee – To All The U.S. Cubano Families Who Just Got Chumped

Saturday, 15 August 2015 by

Yep. The American Flag now flies over the U.S. Embassy in a country dedicated to the abolishment of the one form of government that is guaranteed to bring its denizens out of poverty, i.e., capitalism.

I pity those who think that capitalism is a bad thing, for they’ve been deceived and lied to, and the people who suffered under Castro’s brutal and oppressive regime are unable to speak.

Except for a very few, and I’ve met some of them. They’re not happy about this at all because they remember what happened to themselves and their families when the communists took over.

So where do we go from here?

¡MUSICA CUBANO!

The Cuban sound is a mixture of Spanish, African and European styles, an eclectic mix that blends well. Meanwhile, here’s another great Cuban:

Steven Stills & Manassas. Stills wanted to become one of The Monkees prior to his days with CSN&Y, but he was rejected for contract conflicts. It probably had something to do with being a Cuban, like this orchestra:

In case you didn’t click the link last time around, that’s Prague’s Talichova Komorní Filharmonie in 2012 performing a classic song by the late Cuban composer Frank Zappa.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

All against the wall.

Nothing funny about this.
Take care of your elders and NEVER abandon them. They took care of you, and now it’s your turn to return the favor.

Never forget what they did for you.
