“Once a dancer, always a dancer. It is a very consuming art but also such a short career that you have to live and breath it if you want to be at the top.”—Principal ballerina Darcey Bussell, on retirment after 30 years as a dancer.
Hugs are seriously my favorite. Does this signal that teenagers are seeking stronger physical connections, even as they descend deeper into their Facebooking, texting, OMGing and LMAOing? (via nytimes)
“Do not jokingly criticise the Jonas Brothers — you will receive less-threatening death threats. There’s nothing worse than opening a letter and then seeing in it a death threat. You think, ‘Hold on a minute. I wasn’t looking forward to the letter particularly. Now I fear death. Ruins a perfectly good read.”—Russel Brand’s advice to Adam Sandberg who hosts this year’s MTV Movie Awards
my body likes to kick my ass when i’m sick… and boy did i get a beating. but i’m semi back-in-action today (and luckily it’s a pretty short day at work… like me!) so hopefully my body will me kind to me and let me do my thang. yes, i said thang. (too much Bring It On: All or Nothing on TBS while I was sick. my bad!)
things I’ll miss while being at work:
knowing that the afternoon episode of Full House repeats the next day at 12pm
falling asleep whenever and waking up whenever
McDonalds & Green Apple Green Tea (thanks to the Ryans)
People NOT bugging me at all times of the day
chit chats with mom
ok. this is me coming back to reality. bring it on!
is it absolute art historical blasphemy for me to say that ive seen the mona lisa and i dont get what the big deal is about? don’t get me wrong, im a huge art history buff, i love loved loved studying paintings and writing art history papers during college. burying myself in a pile of art history books was something i truly looked forward to…i know, im a geek. but anyway i think da vinci was a bloody genuis, however, people just went crazy over this painting. in my opinion, he’s done more incredible things in his lifetime that most certainly outweigh our dear mona lisa.
anyway, here’s a few reincarnations should we say, done by famous artists such as banksy, dali, butero, warhol, duchamp, jasper johns, leger and many others.
banksy’s just might be my favourite, he’s always pushing boundaries.
I completely agree with you. I honestly did try to like it. Even when I saw it in person and saw the huge crowds, I really really tried. When I studied it in art history classes, i TRIED to get what he was doing with it. In all honesty, the painting just creeps me out.
