Dirty Car Art

Click above to see the simultaneously sublime and stupid Dirty Car Art by Scott Wade. There you will find a whole gallery of windshield art, using dust as it's medium.

This is just cool. One image is of the Sistine Chapel, with God and Man reaching out to each other and squeezing a Pillsbury Dough Boy. I can only imagine what these images look like from the inside of the car. Gives new meaning to the phrase, 'Eat my dust'.

Boys Sure Do Start Young

Conversation between 2 boys, ages 7 & 9:

J: I've got a big screen TV that's almost the size of this room!

W: Oh yeah, well I've got one that's 5 inches bigger than that!

Me: (half listening) What exactly are we talking about here, fellas?

Click above to hear some of the all-reggae version of Radiohead's OK Computer. Karma Police is wonderfully rendered in full reggae regalia. This is brought to you by the same people who did the stellar Dub Side of the Moon. I'll let you figure out what that was an all-reggae version of.

I can hear the critics already--calling this one a complete re-hash.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Ground Zero

Recently returned from a trip up north, launching Hermione at Hogwarts. Before heading home, we went into NYC for a couple of nights. Went to ground zero and was appropriatley very moved. It's very much a sacred power spot. To give an idea of how powerful--the above photo is a poem illegally written by a policemen near the site. Just think of what it takes for a policeman to write unlawful poetry.

It reads...

The Road to Heaven

While traveling along
It's never too late.
Take the road that leads to love
Not the one to hate.
Hate is what took these buildings down,
with love is how we'll remember those
no longer around.
Take the right road and you will see,
how much sweeter life will be.
The road may be uphill and
strewn with stones,
so get rid of the weight
and lighten the load.
At the summit there is,
a beautiful view,
all of God's peace
open to you.

--A police officer
