Earl Norem - check it out!  Mr. Norem operates a direct line to my child mind.  Probably yours too, if you're born around '82.

*In addition, his name sounds like an anagram!

Welcome to the Dollhouse

My beautiful girlfriend is working on cleaning me off.  And re-balancing my sleep schedule.  Also I'm flirting with the notion of a gluten-free diet.  And I am also considering the ethics of factory-farmed meat.  In addition, I have already purchased edible seaweed sheets and I've already eaten one and it was great, as I knew it would be.  You can make delicious wraps with those!  I am going to make a seaweed taco!

Dude, You HAVE No Koran!

Brand-new internet/American hero Jacob Isom.

Now I'm thinking, also a Jedi? He used mind-trick-speak...
"...Dude, you have no Koran..."
"Dude... I have no Koran."
"Dude, you're not looking to start a Holy War."
"...Dude...  I'm not looking to start a Holy War."
"Move along."
"Move along...  Move along!"
But the Jedi tail.  He's got the tail, which...  Doesn't that mean he's still a Padawan?

Word Out! to: Teresa Bernard

Looking at some paintings by Teresa Bernard:

"Bunratty, Ireland" by Teresa Bernard

Runs a site called Bluemoon Original Oil Paintings.  Plenty of interesting subject matter.  She also does portraits, like this one, which was commissioned by an Illinois man for his wife as a surprise Mother's Day gift.  Here ya go, sweetie!

The oil painting does capture something intangible in the old lab's bearing.  Something about the face.  That mouth.  This is a "gallery quality" oil painting that may survive for centuries, to be gazed upon by countless generations of abstracted Illinoisans.  In the future, will their eye implants hyperlink to the original digital image when they encounter this hand-painted canvas in person?

Yes.  And kids in school will get frustrated when they're looking for similar digital originals of Van Gogh paintings, or Rembrandt portraits.

Oh well, that'll be an excellent object lesson for discussion.
