These white leather jeans were purchased for a dollar at a local Out of the Closet.

And they were transformed by our lovely T~bird into a pair of shorts:

Artist Highlight: Patti Smith

"My politics are very simple. Basically, I just wanted to inspire kids, get 'em off their ass, get 'em thinking, get 'em pissed off, as pissed off as I was. Get them to look around at what was going on, even in the simplest way. Just get them to ask a few questions. You know, interject a little extra joy and pain into their lives. "
[Patti Smith, SPIN, April 1988]

some new, some very old suggestions, a mix of things...

music thoughts of the day

Jakob Dylan "Nothing But the Whole Wide World"

So I was sitting there in the bar and this guy comes up to me and he said "My life stinks" and I saw his gold credit card and I saw the way he was looking at people across the room and I looked at his face and you know, what a good looking face, and I just said, "Dude, your perspective on life sucks".
 "Blame It on the Girls"
 "Grace Kelly"
 "We are Golden"

“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.”
[Georgia O'Keeffe]
