“Do not let any calamity-howling executive with an income of $1,000 a day, who has been turning his employees over to the Government relief rolls in order to preserve his company’s undistributed reserves, tell you – using his stockholders’ money to pay the postage for his personal opinions — tell you that a wage of $11.00 a week is going to have a disastrous effect on all American industry.” (1938, Fireside Chat, the night before signing the Fair Labor Standards Act that instituted the federal minimum wage) F.D.R.

The Troubled Stripper

I have a funny connection to this bar, but this isn’t the time or place to explain it.

Instead, watch my awesome friends kill it.

For the last two days I’ve been pulling my hair out because the term juxtaposition had temporarily escaped me. I had to think back to the example my high school teacher provided me 10 years ago. He said, “think of it as busy sidewalk, bustling with businessmen, while a lone mannequin stands in the middle of them.”

This book by photographer Mark Nixon documents everyone’s earliest and most loyal childhood friend, our first stuffed animal. Most are in a state that can only be described as ”Much Loved" and are accompanied with a corresponding story describing the age and context of the toy.


In other words, I love it.

The imagery of Keith Haring (1958–90) has become a universally recognized visual language of the 20th century. As a student of history, he was particularly interested in semiotics (the study of signs) and art from a variety of cultures, including Precolumbian, Egyptian, and Asian. As a result, his work—built from an iconic language of signature lines and symbols—also shows influences of different visual styles and movements. The interrelationships between his compositions and the ancient imagery presented in The Aztec Empire underscore both the contemporary relevance of Aztec and the powerful points of connection where distinct cultures and centuries meet.” -Guggenheim

I find great commonality between these two images. Scooter owners are our modern Cowboys.
