Favorite things- muppets

I don’t really have anything to add to this, oh wait, yes I do.
When I was little, and the Muppets were on TV, it was a reprieve from our usual bed time of 7pm (I was 5 or 6 at the time, and you know what? I still think that’s a good idea…I went to bed at 8:30 until probably 5th or 6th grade and never after 9 until highschool. And i think then 9pm was enforced, but I digress…) The Muppets. Probably changed my life. I remember seeing Debbie Harry on it and it was like….DONE. I wanted to be Debbie Harry so bad. Except I wasn’t blonde. And I couldn’t sing. And punk scared me a bit when I was little. So then I wanted to be the drummer for the Go-go’s many years later.
Anyway, digressing again- Please to be watching the Muppets take on Bohemian Rhapsody. It is so well done and I found myself loudly laughing many many times

My friends are superheros!

My friend Jon Wye gets more done in a day than a normal person can do in a week. It’s mostly because he’s crazy and doesn’t sleep (or eat, so if you’re ever in New York City, please stop by his store and bring him pizza or something)
He’s an inspiration, the amount of stuff this kid does on his own, including risking life and limb to hang his sign up. Lucky for you, he had someone video tape the whole thing. Watch it here:

learnin’ and teachin’

For two years I worked for the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Mostly I put art in government offices (or in the case of our Mayor, removed the art to make room for his plaques) but I occasionally got to work on some public art projects where I was fortunate to meet Peter Krsko from Albus Cavus who asked if I would teach a class on making Plush Art. Now, to be considered in the same group of people like Mark Jenkins , CON and DECOY is something of a thrill, since I consider them to be, you know, *real artists* whereas I’m some girl making squirrels out of old sweaters.
