IMDb: The biggest, best, most award-winning movie site on the planet.
I love movies and am fascinated how actors are chamelions. I doubt I could turn myself inside out the way they do to play a part in a movie or play.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
“Actors are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, actors face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they'll never work again. Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every role, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment.With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life -the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. Why? Because actors are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience's soul. Actors are beings who have tasted life's nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another's heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.”-David Ackert, LA Times

Daniel has come up with some terrific items he has made out of duck tape. I could not resist selecting something for myself, a bacon design shoulder case. My sunglasses fit in it perfectly. He donates the proceeds of his sales to Blue Card. He's a talented and very special young man.

What fun street art and so close by.
Amy Purdy has been through hardships that most of us will never face -- or can even fathom. But what makes her story so incredible is not that fact that she lived a "normal" childhood and spent her high school years as a passionate artist and snowboarder, then traumatically lost both her legs at age 19, but how she has persevered, taking implausible challenges and rising above them.Today, Amy is an athlete; currently the top ranked adaptive female snowboarder in the world. Amy also spends a good amount of time helping others; specifically those with physical challenges get involved with snowboarding, skateboarding, wakeboarding and other action sports through the organization she co-founded Adaptive Action Sports. Challenging herself while making a positive impact on the world is a true testament to Amy's spirit.
A totally amazing story.
Sounds like a fun and inspiring event.
For the first time a Habitat for Humanity project is creating a home for a person who is completely paralyzed.
I am very excited about this project since my brother is overseeing it. I am also extremely prowd of him. He is the President on the Roaring Fork Valley Chapter where this house is being built. Former US President Jimmy Carter is expected to give the key to the owner at a ceremony when the house is completed.
A segment from the Denver CBS local TV station about a first for Habitat for Humanity. I am extraordinarily proud about this story and this amazing first. My brother is the President of the Roaring Fork Valley Chapter of Habitat for Humanity and a vital part of bringing the project into being.
The San Luis Obispo Tribune Cal Poly architecture program tops national rankings The San Luis Obispo Tribune 1 in DesignIntelligence's rankings of the country's top 20 architecture and design schools.

Never heard of it.
In a world where people live more mobile lifestyles than they have for centuries, cities are facing a problem they rarely planned for: their citizens move away. When jobs and resources start to decline, modern cities, such as Detroit, suffer difficult and often wasteful processes of urban contraction. In contrast to this, Manuel Dominguez’s “Very Large Structure,” the result of his thesis project at ETSA Madrid, proposes a nomadic city that can move on caterpillar tracks to locations where work and resources are abundant.
Conceptually, there is something to "a walking city for the 21st Century". But aesthetically "Manuel Dominguez's 'Very Large Structure' looks more like anOrwellian 1984 science fiction nightmare.

[Note: Click the map to enlarge, and mouse over it to move around.] Every state has "that agency." The one you can't help but admire, or envy. The one where you'd like to work—or if you're lucky, where you do work.
I would guess that there are both statistical data and emotional input in deciding what agency is best.

Great stuff and clever art.

I love Street Art. Amazing things are happening around the globe related to it.
While it is true that people still deface buildings and bridges with squiggles that could hardly be called art, a good portion of it is now an innovative, creative expression of people worldwide that deserves a new title: Street Art. - See more at: http://artsnapper.com/street-art-worldwide-phenomenon/#sthash.9mwVsy06.dpuf
Uploaded on Feb 15, 2012Raghava KK is a celebrated renowned Indian artist. CNN named him one of 10 remarkable people the world is yet to know of. He began his career in art as a newspaper cartoonist, and the cartoonist's bold line -- and dead-on eye for truth -- still powers his art. His work spans painting, sculpture, installation, film and performance, always linked by his challenging opinions on identity, conformity, gender, celebrity, ceremony.
He shows in galleries and performance spaces around the world. He also spends much of his time teaching storytelling through art. Among his latest work is an Ipad book (POP-IT) that promotes multiple perspectives and empathy. He is a two time TED speaker. He lives and works out of New York.
He has collaborated with world famous artists such as Paul Simon, Erykah Badu, Yann Vasnier (perfumer). He was invited to be on a BBC panel on creativity and spoken in conferences around the world. He teaches a course at NuVu Studios, an experimental education project of the MIT Media Labs in Cambridge MA.
Great story about avery create young Indian artist.

Patagonia not only champions environmental and social causes. They also design outdoor clothing that is meant to be the best of its kind. The few pieces of Patagonia outerwear that I have is very dear to me.

Design Intelligence provides articles about the top Architecture schools from a variety of perspectives.
My alma mater, U of Southern California ranks in the top ten in the country.
Venice is sinking. To save it, Rachel Armstrong says we need to outgrow architecture made of inert materials and, well, make architecture that grows itself. She proposes a not-quite-alive material that does its own repairs and sequesters carbon, too.
Now that is a novel idea. Architecture that can repair itself. It's alive!
My Oct. 25 review of a new exhibition at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” ignited strong reactions from some Latino artists.
