Earthquake Weather


  1. The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.

We never knew surrealism looked so good as tattoos!

Most tattoos have underlying messages that require the observer to ask the owner what they mean. But in this case, I don’t think the owners themselves even understand what their tattoo means! Milan-based tattoo artist Pietro Sedda uses surrealism to ink the flesh of his clients, painting faceless portraits that show what they feel rather than what they appear to be. The designs are a bit disturbing, because you know, faces with no faces, but they’re beautiful nonetheless. It’s tattoo designs like this that make tattooing high art.
I don’t think I can define it. Perhaps melancholc’, said Sedda when asked to describe his style in an interview with InkedMag. ‘I don’t really like definitions. I prefer to talk about talent and imagination. I consider the exchange between myself and the client a fundamental part of my creative process’. Would you get a surreal tattoo?

    Omg.. The way the cat slows down to allow the bun to catch up, probably because it knows how much the bun likes to stop and look at stuff

    has anyone noticed THAT THE BUNNY IS TRYING TO WALK LIKE THE CAT.

    BUNNIES FUCKING HOP

  5. But to assume that a lot of clever people adds up to a clever group is to neglect a phenomenon well established by social scientists: the more similar the members of a group think, the lower the group’s collective intelligence.

I hope he’s right!!! Support the 28th Amendment to #GetMoneyOut:http://bit.ly/getMoneyOut

Bernie!

I’m liking Senator Sanders’ PR game. Sanders/Warren in 2016!
(NB: I needed a shot of whiskey after writing that because of course that’s not going to happen. Something like a Sanders/Warren administration seems impossible, and yet America needs it so desperately. *gulp*)

  7. Rick Perlstein: By the Book

    • NYT:
      If you could require the president to read one book, what would it be?

    • Rick Perlstein:
      The Book of Job, maybe. It’s the best story I know at driving home the fact that the world just isn’t always a reasonable place. Not grasping that, I think, is Barack Obama’s tragic flaw: He still seems to stubbornly believe that if he just explains clearly and calmly enough to his friends across the aisle why his ideas will bring the greatest good to the greatest number, there’ll finally be no more Red America and no more Blue America. But my 18 years studying conservatism has convinced me the right just doesn’t work that way — they’re fighting for civilization stakes, and he’s a liberal, so, Q.E.D., he’s the enemy. His longing to compromise with them just ends up driving the political center in America further to the right.

  10. My first question to anyone who is on television saying, “We have to get tough, we need to put boots on the ground and we need to go to war in one of these places” is, I will hear you out if you tell me you are prepared to send your son, your daughter, your grandson, your granddaughter to that war of which you are beating the drums. If you aren’t, I have no patience with you, and don’t even talk to me.
  11. I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.
