STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom, if agreed, stayed home to raise the kids..
What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”—Anaïs Nin (via elige)
I’m sure many of you have seen my “I AM” project (If not, it’s here). Well I have some good news! The project has been selected to be a part of an upcoming art event called 2nd Floor Rear, put together by It’s a Pony Projects here in Chicago. It’s going to be a wonderful art event with works installed and exhibited in nontraditional spaces for 24 hours (February 4-5, beginning at noon). There will also be activities, dances, drinks, etc. and everyone is welcome to attend.
It’s a Pony Projects is raising funds (up till February 1) to help cover the costs of the festival. If you can find it in your hearts, pockets, purses, Paypals, and wallets, please donate at least $1 (just $1! Only 4 quarters! You can find that in your sofa!), it would really help to bring this event to fruition.
Here’s more info on the festival:
2nd Floor Rear is a 24-hour festival of alternative spaces, apartment galleries, and ephemeral and migrant projects celebrating Chicago’s vibrant community of alternative and DIY art spaces.
In 1980, the Neoists, a little-known avant-garde subculture descended from Fluxus, held their first annual “International Neoist Apartment Festival” or APT, a four-day long event complete with concerts, performances, film screenings, and installations, in the apartment of one of the members of the Neoist group. Poorly documented and marginally historicized, it is thought that APT carried on annually, in various iterations, until 1988.
Drawing on the 24-hour block party model (think Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Mainx24 festival), 2ndFloor Rear adapts the spirit of APT to a condensed, 24-hour timeline. From noon on February 4th to noon on February 5th, festival participants such as Pop-up Art Loop, Carousel Space Projects, Milk Gallery, the Happy Collaborationists, and individual artists such as Chiara Galimberti and Karen Faith will host pop-up exhibitions, dream yoga sleepovers, site-specific installations, and New Wave synth-pop art extravaganzas.
Here, also, is the official site, where you can see my name in the Collaborators list! :D
Thank you all, and I hope you can help pitch a buck or two!
Hey guys, have you met The Purity Bear? He’s a plush toy who appears to tempted teens and warns them without moving his mouth that going inside a girl’s house will inevitably lead to sex having, and sex having before marriage is literally the worst decision you could possibly make. In spite of…
On display now at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute museum in Manhattan is the show “Joaquin Sorolla and the Glory of Spanish Dress,” which was conceived by designer Oscar de la Renta and curated by Vogue’s André Leon Talley.
I really enjoy this article and I’m sure you’ll be able to relate as well.
If you’re not feeling happy, take a look at this list and see what you can remedy.
You need to make plans to see someone on a Tuesday because having a guaranteed fun activity in the middle of the week will keep you sane and give you something to look forward to. And let’s face it, we all need something to look forward to during the work week…
You need music you can fall in love with…
You need someone in your life who excites you, makes you nervous, and forces you to question what you think you already know… someone who’s challenging, who we can’t figure out, and can tell us that we’re full of crap.
And of course, as Donna and Tom from Parks & Rec have promoted… a day or two to TREAT YO’ SELF!
We need to treat ourselves to stupid stuff. We spend a great deal of our time saying “NO” to things just so one day we can be like “Screw it. I’m doing me today.” If you did “you” every day, you’d either be broke or ridden with STDS.
This is disturbing! I can’t believe this happened. I hope people understand that this is not an example of how the whole US military operates, but a disgusting few.
The parents of a New York City Army private who committed suicide in Afghanistan have been told distressing new details of the racial bullying and mistreatment their son endured at the hands of his comrades.
A spokeswoman for Chen’s parents said investigators told them that on the day of his death, he was forced to crawl 100 metres on gravel with his equipment on as fellow GIs threw rocks at him.
Speaking through an interpreter, his mother said her 19-year-old son was called ‘dragon lady’ and derogatory phrases.
