Check out the amazing photo competition, "Color Wars," tomorrow night in LA! Not to be missed!!!
"Photographers, each tasked with capturing a different color inside of an enormous gallery audience, go on the hunt. The camera will be their paint brush, the film their paint, and the audience their subjects."
Amazing story/slideshow on hand-made recycled houses in the NYTimes

Have an inspired weekend!!
I would say that more than anything, I seem to be drawn to songs about trains. Slow ones, fast ones, those that are leaving, those just pulling in. I like this quote because it's the first step to it all.

From today's artist: "When walking or driving in the city it is sometimes possible to detect the poetic subconscious of the place, the thing we cannot see but can only occasionally access through feeling. The sharp attention required for this experience comes from extensive looking (for nothing in particular), walking without distraction but implicitly always distracted."

Here are some of the author's picks for some of the most interesting ages in his map of cultural history:
Sigmund Freud sees his mother naked, 1859.
Mick Jagger meets Keith Richards, 1947.
Hank Williams learns to drink liquor while living for a year with his cousins’ family in Fountain, Alabama, 1933.
In 1934 Charles Schulz’s family gets a new black and white dog. His name isn’t Snoopy.
John Lennon meets Paul McCartney for the first time at a church fete in Liverpool, 1957.
Salvador Dali meets Picasso, 1926. Picasso tells him he was wise to visit him instead of the Louvre.
Elvis Presley receives a visit from the Beatles at Graceland, August, 1965. Because he can’t tell them apart and doesn’t know their names he addresses each of them individually as “Beatle.”
Ernest Hemingway divorces third wife Martha Gellhorn for laughing at him, 1945.
In 1958, Alfred Hitchcock directs the film Vertigo which is about an older man who persuades a younger woman to change the way she wears her hair.
