Liberace, Mad Men and Sesame Street - just some of the arts, culture & creativity links for this week.Read More
My blog has three categories: create, where I photograph, cook, make art and write about the creative process; travel is about my travels, both local and afar; and inspire - photographers, artists, & designers who inspire my work, and interviews with artists, photographers, & creative couples.
Popular blog series include Tovah Cooks where I "made modern" my mother-in=laws 1960's Mad Men era recipes, Creative Couples interviews, fab takes on art & fashion history in Art One Oh One, & Fashion One Oh One, and conversations with Jen Cooper of Classic Play in Talking About Creativity.
I am the proud owner of a new lens - a 50mm prime and have been playing this week. These are the last bath toys to live in the bathroom here. The girl used to play with them all the time - they've had many an adventure during bathtime. Now that she is older they haven't seen much play for a while but I can't pack them away. Not yet.
Poor Lane Pryce. Great article about Jared Harris, the man behind him. And a Q&A about his character's recent "events" (spoiler alert for those who are not yet in season five - Melanie at Inward Facing Girl, that's you)..
This Sunday it's the TONY AWARDS. Emceed by Neil Patrick Harris. Thought I'd just say that OUT LOUD. But I'll have to tape it 'cause the neighbours are having a street bbq that same evening. You see, they obviously don't know it's the TONY AWARDS. Click on each nominee here to watch an excerpt of their performance.
(PS They also don't know that it's the finale of MAD MEN too). <-----think I need to get a life??
And some nostalgia for you - remember the game show Match Game? Here's Charles Nelson Reilly on Carson, the 70's version of 15 minutes of fame.
Oliver Jeffers collages. I could make collages all day long. Love the layering and the mixed media and the cutting and gluing and stitching and painting...you get the idea.
If you ever watched the Wire, here's a MUSICAL version with many of the same actors. Omar! It's all in the game.
