    Those animal portraits by Brad Wilson are fantastic! I would love to watch the artist at work when he’s photographing the animals.

    I got 221 on the music quiz. I’m feeling pretty good about myself right now.

      Ha! I got 221 too! Mostly it was just lucky guesses though (I know approximately jack shit about indie or pop stuff).

        I got 220 and feel pretty good about it after level 5 or so. A lot of this music I’ve not heard – though sometimes I knew the performers’ / band names – but also several lucky guesses. Interesting quiz!

    I got 232 on the music quiz and would have done better if my old lady eyes could’ve read the tiny print on the album titles.

    Listening to Dinah Shore try to explain punk rock has made my day!

    Also, Iggy Pop and David Bowie = my favorite bromance of all time.

    I scored 245 on the music quiz (messed up some of the less obvious hip hop). Finally all of the music information clogging up my brain is paying off! 😉

      I got the same score, and had the exact same feeling of vindication.

      (Full disclosure, though — Some of mine were guesses. I tried to match the sound and feel of the songs to the album art. It worked pretty well, actually!)

    Those animal portraits will cause you to re-think all of your assumptions about humans and all of the other non-humans we live with here. Man. This world is a rich and wonderful place.

    WOW. Just wow. Claire Coles’ work is so beautiful and the animal portraits are mind-blowing. They look like super-detailed drawings. Thank you, Kim. <3
