Not too much happening here in Jersey. Well, all bad stuff to me, like, me being sick and can’t really do much this past weekend and then when I went to go get food I found out my tire had a flat… number 4 in the same tire in about a month and a half. I think it’s time for a new tire. So as I procrastinate more in calling AAA and getting ready for the day, here are some articles that I read this morning that are amusing… at least to me they’re amusing.
Nothing really art related today
To: Professor@University.edu Subject: Why It’s All About Me ~ Okay, I have to admit that I have written e-mails that I had to miss class right before the class but I never asked for the notes… I got them from a friend. And I usually only ever missed because I felt miserable.
“New Seven” wonders list narrowed; now it’s up to the world to choose ~ architectural designs? That’s it? I wonder what the other 77 are. Thank goodness Mt. Rushmore is considered. That’s pretty impressive if you think about it. A man carving our forefathers on the side of a mountain. Crazy, but a wonder.
With a Few Clicks, You, Too, Can Start to Change Your Life ~ Really? This is all I need to do to find happiness? Sign me up!
Candy maker touts new chocolate’s health benefits ~ Mmmmm… chocolate… I always thought of chocolate as its own food group.
Titles so terrible that ‘Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes’ didn’t even make the final cut ~ Wow. Some of these are bad. Well, all of them are really bad. “Snakes on a Plane”? “Mother, May I Sleep With Danger”? Let alone having bad movie titles, I’ve never even heard of these movies!
Why figure skating is not a sport ~ I kinda of had this vow not to talk about sports on this blog since I really get all my sports info from my brother’s blog but this article made me smile. It’s true! Where are the points coming from? But this is also how I feel about grading art. How can you grade art? It’s all subjective. Papers and tests I understand how and why, but if you tell me it’s effort that’s BS. I’ve seen way too many times people’s art that they didn’t put any effort in their piece, but the final piece wows the teacher and then the work that was spent hours on didn’t even get recognized… I’m not bitter, really, I’m not. But back to figure skating…
