A few times in my life

"For the first time in my life I can't see my future. Everyday goes by in a haze, but today I have decided will be different."
~George, A Single Man (2010)

IPHONE OIL PAINTINGS BY JK KELLER

iPhone Oil Paintings” by JK Keller are NOT the kind of iPhone Oil Paintings you would expect. Using only his finger as a paintbrush, Keller, 36, turned the oil from his face into fun works of iPhone art - and then made a Tumblr dedicated to it! 

“I think people are drawn to it at this moment because there’s a current thread of uneasy tension that we all have with our technology,” Keller tells DailyDot. “People are very interested in these places where beauty and repulsion are at odds with each other in very relatable ways.” Intriguing… what do you think? Cool? Repulsive?

Art is everywhere. 

Everything is art!!!

Emily Greenhouse asks: Why do news reports still count the numbers of women and children killed in war zones? http://nyr.kr/1xAjgSO

“If we truly wish to identify the most helpless victims, we should count, alongside children, the infirm and the elderly. Instead, we tally the number of women and children killed, reflecting and perpetuating outdated ideas about women’s lives and women’s bodies.”

"What would happen if women, who we perceive as innocents in war zones, were understood to be simply war casualties, their worth neither more nor less than that of male civilians? Perhaps we would be more just and more respectful to female soldiers, and we would come a little closer to grasping the magnitude of each human loss."

John Lahr remembers Elaine Stritch: http://nyr.kr/1n27Wgg

“Onstage, she was all prowess; offstage, she was all panic. The lyric of a song, the stage directions of a script, gave her a sense of direction; onstage, and it seems to me only onstage, she could be free.”
