"King has done for the female voice what countless singer-composers achieved years ago for the male: liberated it from technical decorum. She insists on being heard as she is -- not raunchy and hot-to-trot or sweeet and be-yoo-ti-ful, just human, with all the cracks and imperfections that implies." (1981)
-Robert Christgau

Alittle sexist, but I see where he's coming from. Really, this woman isn't given enough credit, even though she was a huge success in her time. Although covers of her songs are lovely, there's just something fantastic about her voice.
Listen to her music and you'll realize how raw and beautiful(though it took me a couple of listens to really "get it", at first you might think it's not "edgy" enough. She's easily in league with Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Janis Joplin and has certainly influenced Tori Amos, among many others.

And as much as I love experimental, that doesn't mean well done, innovative, and commercially viable music shouldn't be held in the same high regard.

You know what I can't stand?
Meek, passive aggressive types who only show their true colors in writing because they are too scared shitless otherwise.

Since the landing of Katrina 2 years ago, how has your life changed?

"People are angry and they want to send a message to politicians that they want them to do more and do it faster," said the Rev. Marshall Truehill, a Baptist pastor and community activist. "Nobody's going to be partying."

"It's an emotional time. You relive what happened and you remember how scattered everyone is now. There are relationships now that are completely over," said Robert Smallwood, a local writer. "The city has been dying this slow death. In New Orleans, you can't escape it. It's bad news every day.

1:05 pm - So fashion is only for the beautiful people, eh?


fashion is born from dissatisfaction and creativity. It's the story of the crow wanting to wear the peacock dress- EmileCollapse )

11:03 pm - Farewell, Nylon
It goes without saying that I am a fan of Nylon. Well, I was.
You see, Nylon was kind of a symbol of the type of approach to fashion and culture that I've always appreciated.
I liked the quirky style icons (Jodie Foster from Taxi Driver anyone?) their little essays on our cultures views of certain subjects, be they on mall culture or the viewpoints of womens' hairlength. Their editorials always had a nice charm to it, they didn't have that annoying glossy oooooh we are so much richer then thou(though they are) of vogue. My favorite editorial is still with Lydia Hearst, dressed in the guise of a miss matched 60's new york girl in a dilapidated house (coughediesedgwickcough).Their music tastes I am forever grateful to, since several of my favorite acts I was made aware of in their magazine (yes I am horribly lazy and don't seek out music on it's own)

But..lately it seems they've gone down hill...really down hill..
for a magazine I once thought represented taste, talent, orginality, intellect, a certain wit I dare say..
Well all I can say is their cover girls lately don't seem to live up to those standards. By a long shot...
Down we goCollapse )

So finished reading the last Harry Potter about 20 minutes ago (started reading yesterday after a delayed start bitches)
am pleased that I was right on several assumptions I made. Though I really shouldn't be, they were a bit obvious.

Overally, I give my seal of approval, which I know Ms. Rowling has so desperately sought.
Oh and my Illustration professor is the husband of Mrs. Marie Grandpre..some of you might have seen her work before...

Go to art school? Sick and tired of people that go to "real colleges" saying you don't do shit at school? Here is the group you should join if: (any more ideas to add to the list? Let it rip!)

1. You know you have at least 5 projects to completely finish in a week.

2. On top of those assignments, you also have to write papers and study for liberal arts classes.

3. You pull an all nighter at least 2 times or more a week.

4. You drink more coffee and smoke more cigarettes than an average "college" student.

5. The amount of stuff written in your planner makes you want to kill yourself.

6. But you love it anyways!

7. Your friends that go to "real college" claim they are smarter than you. Of course because attend art school you are dumb.

8. You are not dumb! If anything you don't have half as much time to party, get fatter, and go to lame fraternity/sorority parties.

9. You know that you will be making twice as much more money than your friends when you finally land that masterpiece you have been working on for 5 million years.

10. You hate when people study art history at a "real college" and they don't even understand how to paint.

11. You are the best multi-tasker out of anyone ever. AKA: Talking on the cellphone, typing on a computer, scanning your image, messing it up in photoshop, updating your css webpage, painting, studying and listening to your ipod at the same time.

12. You aren't stuck up. You are just better than everyone because you actually have a REAL talent.

13. You know more about politics and social issues than most government majors do.

14. Your "parties" consist of the following:
-Drunken debates
-Conversations about which art teachers know the least about what they teach
-Drinking a bottle of hard liquor and smoking a pack of american spirits in a span of 1 hour
-Drukenly showing off your portfolio to your artsy friends.
-Discussing the last foreign film you saw at some independant movie theatre.
-Being "weird"
-Talking about how much work you have to do when you wake up from being passed out.

15. You go to art museums for fun and sometimes your school gets you in FOR FREE!

16. People you went to high school with make fun of you and your friends because you look "strange" and have "strange" hobbies.

17. You don't even care or know what "spring break" is.

18. Your cafateria has a huge line in the "vegan/vegetarian" section.

19. You know the right side of your brain is as strong as David Hasselhof and the left side of your brain is as strong as Richard Simmons.


21. Your the only person who's skin crawls when you see a Thomas Kinkade painting. Your skin crawls even more when your friends say "his art is so amazing!"

22. You hate kids that own a more expensive camera than you do, they don't know how to use it, and claim they are photographers.

23. Your friends think its funny that you have seen more people naked then they ever will in their whole life. You also have a few horror stories to add to that.

24. You are the only people who actually have to "MAKE IT WORK!"

25. You know Tim Gunn either personally, through a friend, or through project runway.

26. No, you will not let your "college" friends go to the fashion show with you.

27. Kerning has nothing to do with popcorn.

28. Compare studying for 2 hours or drawing the same object 190 different times one half hour before your 9 am class.

29. When you mention Leonardo DaVinci, your "college" friends say, "oh, the DaVinci code?!" and you just sigh and walk away.

30. You know how to make a screenprint. In fact some people at "real colleges" might be wearing your screen print.

31. You feel unappreciated in the world because in fact the whole world is made up of art. Any "smart" person knows that!

32. You draw your notes instead of writing them.

33. You spend more than 24 hours at your sewing machine.

34. Most "college" students don't even know how to use a ruler like you do.

35. Try and ask your friends if they can condtruct a working umbrella or a chair made out of foam and plywood.

36. you know the true meaning of the phrase "dumpster diving" and know how hard it is to get foreign objects out of your hair.

37. the textbooks you use for art history classes are so perverse they are not found anywhere but your college store.

38. you spend as much time trying to save money on art supplies as you do finishing homework. (6 hours on a drawing assignment - 7 hours going to art stores for the cheapest paper, 9 hours on a 3d sculpture - 12 hours going through trash for materials, etc,...)

40. You feel murderous when you notice how many people “dumb quotes“ and Helvetica improperly.

41. The words “Flash“ and “8“ strike fear into your soul and makes you cry a little.

42. You can‘t wait ‘till finals for the 24 hour building access that totally obliterates your sleep schedule worse than it already is.

43. Your eyes BLEED from staring at your computer screen for too long.

44. Your hair has been 200 different shades of color from freshman year to senior year.


46. You have the ability to sleep while sitting on a stool.

47. You have the ability to sleep standing up...and in the shower.

48. You tell kids who go to "real" colleges that you go to art school, and they go "aww.. thats cute. so you paint landscapes and stuff?"

49. you live in a studio and sleep in a dorm room!

50. people who have prescriptions to aderol etc. become your best friends when big projects are due

51. you have the ability to ware cat ears and still look great

52. you have a blanket, pillow, toothbrush, toothpaste, change of clothes all under your drafting table "a.k.a. your home"

53. our camera goes more places with you than your boyfriend does..
and you understand that a visualist major IS NOT someone who is studying to become a psychic

54. When you talk to your family about what you're going to do with your degree they all ask "are you planning on painting on the streets?" or "So, are you going to teach, or what?

55. you've ever had to walk across campus carrying a portfolio with your finals work and had a wind/snow/rain storm come up and knock the shit out of your hands.

56. Done an insane amount of detailing to the point that people ask how can you do that you must be insane, but then finish and feel that elation from seeing what YOU created come to life. Who else can feel that? accountants? doubt it.

57. you unconsciously analysis all advertisements to determine their semiotic message.

58. every shirt you see for sale is broken down into the munsell color system, and critiqued on their success or failure in creating harmonious color

59. you have pre-concieved notions about all persons not enrolled in art school and thier inability to realize let alone understant anything pertanant to the function of society.

60. all of your clothes smell like febreze and turpentine/developer...because laundry--whose got time for that?

61. When you tell people that you go to art school, and they reply, "So, can you draw good?", you get really annoyed, mostly because you're bitter from people thinking that all you do is draw pictures all day long and on top of that, they have poor grammar.

62. .in case you run out of stimulants....you can always use the 10 sharpies, 20+ prismacolours or rubber cement to wake you up in a jiffy.

63. when you say you spent the day in the darkroom you mean it.. it was dark when you went in .. and when you leave its still darkk.. hence the lack of a tan...

64. You get offended when soliciters and other people look to you on the street for money. "I'm an ART student," you reply, then get even more offended when they act as if they don't know what that means. It means we're completely broke. Art students are the last people anyone should be asking for money

my sister kathy has a blog.

she actually made a contest online and gave out awards.
there were actual contestants(i think).
un-fucking real.

apparently she paints.
i think i like reading what she writes rather then hearing her speak.

and apparently people leave comments on her blog as well. i am so proud of my older sister.

Oh and thanks to Miss Schober, I am enjoying Little Earthquakes entirely too much.
