Pony Party: Your Morning Art

Hope you are all waking up to a fine morning.

Turns out Joe Jackson just made a new CD in January….

Bonus animation I just thought was cool.

Not much to say in this early pony party. Chances are I am surfing for coffee.

Please don’t rec the pony party, hang out and chit chat and then go read some of the excellent offerings on our recent and rec’d list.

  1. I think I might go out and buy that Joe Jackson CD today if I run across it in my errands.

    In the afternoon “pony party”, I will flap on about our Boston meet-up.

    Our house is too close to the water that it won’t stick but I’ve seen cars driving down our street with several inches on them!

    I’ve always liked Joe Jackson’s voice and songs. His songs stick in my brain easily and not unpleasantly!  Another oldster with a great new album out is Nick Cave.  The Wim Widders movie, Wings of Desire introduced his greatness to me.

    I just saw something like art, two boys of some mixed culture riding bikes by in the snow, both with bright yellow orange hats on bright orange bikes and with matching yellow socks which were both visible above their shoes.  Tulips covered in snow?  Strange days indeed.

  2. Somebody who can actually write might be able to include this in an Earth Day diary.  I dunno.

    But Gail Collins, one of the best columnists at the NY Times, was absolutely devastating today: “The Fat Bush Theory”

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had trouble getting my head around goals that involve reducing the rate at which something is growing. To appreciate the administration’s efforts on the, um, issue, let’s try to imagine it in terms other than greenhouse gas emissions.

    [I]magine that he regarded getting fat as seriously as he regards melting glaciers, rising oceans and drought and starvation around the planet. In that case, he would set a serious, management-type goal – of, say, an 18 percent reduction in the rate at which he was gaining weight, to be reached within the next decade.

    2012: Bush hits his final goal and 400 pounds at approximately the same time.

    Imagine it’s 2025, and you’ve got a 486-pound ex-president being wheeled in to accept the congratulations of the world on his excellent physical fitness program. Really, that’s big.

    OMG, you have to read the whole thing.  I have (twice) and she just eviscerates his global-warming policy.
