Check it out here.

Francis Chan Quote

"When people make changes in their carries greater impact than when they merely make impassioned declarations. The world needs Christians who don't tolerate the complacency of their own lives."

Woods by Bon Iver

I found this cat on emusic. This song is awesomely creepy & compelling & fascinating. I can't stop listening to it.

I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind, I'm building a still to slow down the time.

Vonnegut in Hartford

So, I have been talking to the artist who helped Vonnegut get into making prints, who now manages his artwork, and he is going to lend about 30 pieces to us for a show in the gallery at our center February 27th-March 8th. It should get great crowds and I get to introduce Vonnegut to my students.

How cool is that! We sure have a lucky curator who gets to hang it all.

"...there is the kind of Christmas with presents piled high, the gifts of guilty parents as bribes because they have nothing else to give. The wrappings are ripped off and the presents are thrown down and at the end the child says – ‘Is that all?’ Well it seems to me that America now is like that second kind of Christmas. Having too many THINGS they spend their hours and money on the couch searching for a soul. A strange species we are. We can stand anything God and Nature can throw at us save only plenty. If I wanted to destroy a nation, I would give it too much and I would have it on its knees, miserable, greedy and sick." ~John Steinbeck

what are you - some kind of picasser?

so, as we are all much, much, much more interested in supporting artists and surrounding ourselves with original art (as opposed to played-out prints from super-stores) so i thought i would share this website of very cool and affordable artwork in limited editions. dig.
