Hee Haw Breakdown, Nolan Cormier & The L.A. Aces (1971) From  Lousiana Cajun Music Special, Swallow Records 1988:
“Cut in 1971 at the first recording session of Swallow’s last recording studio, this Cajun ditty became an instant hit regionally, and then skipped over the Atlantic to become a popular Cajun hit in England as well.”

The Perfect Storm Birds

An image of a storm (near Earth, Texas, by photographer Laura Rowe) was posted on Facebook recently by Pam M.

Then someone enhanced it…

I ramped it up a notch, just because.

Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Eyck

The Syndics – Rembrandt

The Milkmaid – Vermeer

The Arnolfini Portrait – Van Eyck

“In early 2004 I was invited to create a new work for an exhibition at an art foundation in Holland. The subject of the exhibition was humor. I decided to depart from the field of new-media experiments, while remaining in the ‘digital’ realm, by having some fun with the great Dutch Masters — Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Van Eyck. My partner Andrea made all of the costumes and spent a long time crouched underneath a cardboard box while I carefully positioned and photographed her fingers. It was a new experience for me when the show’s curator refused to exhibit the work he had commissioned, even though it was already listed in the catalogue. The explanation he provided was that the photos “weren’t funny”. About a week later I received an even more puzzling request to exhibit the project in a Taiwanese digital art festival.” -Golan Levin
