TV Review: Hostages Pilot

Hostages, a new CBS drama, packs a lot of punch. When a show (or in this case a "limited series") puts it all on the table with one allegedly magnanimous event to propel itself forward, it had better be compelling. It had better pack some tension, and it's got to successfully heighten that tension from the beginning until the credits. For the most part, Hostages delivers.

Hair and Now: Beards and their fuzzy Pasts.

So, I'm pretty frequent on the social media sites and I'm seeing these hashtags everywhere #beardlife, #beardthef***up, #beardgang and so on and so forth and I'm not impressed. I've heard the saying "nothing under the sun is new" and it's true. If we take a glance back far enough, beards have always been hair, I mean here. All the greats possessed beards, well the greats in my eyes. Fidel, Che, Moses, Jesus. Who can argue with such a line up?

An Artist Pep-Talk

So you're not really sure if you can call yourself an "artist" yet, but you have a healthy amount of artwork completed. You have been leisurely creating art for a couple years now and are beginning to grasp a firm grip on your craft.

How Art Gets Lost In Money

Today I was mulling around the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Amongst the empty frames from the most prolific art theft of recent history, was some pretty incredible and meaningful art. During my visit I caught myself thinking about the amount of money the theft is advertised as (north of $500 million).

Why Art Is More Important Than Math

OK, time to piss off some mathematicians and those always pushing for math and science.

I find it incredibly interesting that the arts are the first thing on the chopping block at schools with lagging budgets. I am aware of the importance of math.. to figure out change of a dollar and figure out how many big macs you can eat. However, advanced math is utterly useless when it comes to real life application. Unless of course you are an engineer, but as a trained architect I choose to ignore engineers.

Is Art For Everyone?

Dreamers..... its something we deep down inside, actually are. But our dreams are even more closer to reality than we even know. It is our distant thoughts of doubt which seem to always flood our souls and continuously fight with our hearts and minds almost every time. We are all special and we all hold hidden talents and artistic values that we may not recognize or feel we are worthy of displaying.
