WHAT A DISCOVERY!

I just found Alexa Meade today. It’s a treat for my senses.

A reprieve from daily life.

Amazing talent!

RedLineBAlexa Meade (born 1986) is an American Installation Artist best known for her portraits painted directly onto the human body and inanimate objects in a way that collapses depth and makes her models appear two-dimensional when photographed. What remains is “a photo of a painting of a person, and the real person hidden somewhere underneath.”

She takes a classical concept – trompe l’oeil, the art of making a two-dimensional representational painting look like a real three-dimensional space – and turns it on its head by doing the opposite, making real life appear to be a painting.

~~Published on Sep 6, 2013~~

Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it – literally. She covers everything in a scene – people, chairs, food, you name it – in a mask of paint that mimics what’s below it.

In this eye-opening talk Meade shows off photographs of some of the more outlandish results and shares a new project involving people, paint and milk.

Transfixed by racial, political, and socioeconomic tensions saturating the news, movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, enveloped by the art of Alexa Meade, switch off the TV and release their emotion into a stirring dance that is both a lament and a spirited call to action.

Movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, who use dance to move people and improve the world, find alchemy with Meade’s perspective-changing art.

‘”FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS”

PUERTO RICO’S CRISIS

There’s still a crisis in Puerto Rico and we can’t forget that.

It has become the second longest blackout ever.

Here’s a condensed version of Puerto Rico’s history by itself, with Spain and with he United States.

This video also takes us back to September 6, 2017, when Hurricane María destroyed Puerto Rico as we knew it.

Hurricane season is already under way.

Hurricane Beryl has formed and it’s too close for comfort.

Let the video speak for itself.

Something to Think About …. “🤨 Stolen Native Land …. Illegal Immigrants? 🤨 …. “!!


NO ONE IS ILLEGAL ON STOLEN LAND

For some ‘unknown reason’, this fact reminds me of what is happening in Palestine (David) as Israel (Goliath) continues their invasion and encroachment in Palestine ‘native land’.

Very interesting information including an interactive map

~~The Invasion of America~~

~~Published on Jun 2, 2014~~

Please visit our interactive map: invasionofamerica.ehistory.org …

Between 1776 and 1887, the United States seized over 1.5 billion acres from America’s indigenous people by treaty and executive order.

The Invasion of America shows how by mapping every treaty and executive order during that period.

It concludes with a map of present-day federal Indian reservations.

ANTWON ROSE, JR.

Another senseless shooting, another victim to police deadly force.

Another victim to ‘running while black’.

Another black citizen shot in the back by police!

On Monday, June 25th, two friends of Antwon, 17, a rising high school senior from Rankin, Pa., who was killed by an East Pittsburgh police officer one week prior to this writing, struggled to read that poem, “I Am Not What You Think!,” as family, schoolmates and friends gathered for Antwon’s funeral at his school, Woodland Hills Intermediate School, in Swissvale, Pa.

Antwon died after being shot three times as he ran from a vehicle during a traffic stop. The police said that he and another passenger fled after an officer stopped the Chevrolet Cruze they were in because it was thought to have been involved in an earlier shooting. The driver was taken into custody, interviewed and later released, the police have said.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz …. “🧐🇵🇷 Get to know the Girl from the Bronx 🧐🇵🇷 … “!!

~~June 29, 2018~~ 

THE GIRL FROM THE BRONX

Who knew her name before the recent primaries? 

I don’t think many.

She was the upset of the evening.

I’m so very glad for her; mainly because she has Puerto Rican heritage and also because she brings new ideas which are very much needed in the current political climate.

I wish her the best and hope that the ‘monsters’ in Washington don’t have the ability to change or corrupt her.

Here’s to you, Alex!!

A former Bernie Sanders organizer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz of Queens, New York City won the democrats spot in the 2018 primary elections over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley. A 28-year-old Latina woman, Ocasio-Cortez may also be one of the youngest elected to House, at age 28. Check out our extended interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Alexandria (born October 13, 1989) is an American democratic socialist, activist, educator, community organizer, and politician.

On June 26, 2018, Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, defeating the incumbent, Democratic Caucus Chair Joseph Crowley, in what has been described as the biggest upset victory in the 2018 midterm election season.

Ocasio-Cortéz is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and is also considered to be a left-wing populist.

After securing a stunning upset victory over long-term incumbent Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s Democratic primary, June 26, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz has suddenly become a household name.

The 28-year-old, who’s all but guaranteed to be the next congresswoman for New York’s 14th District, appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to talk about the surprise over her win and facing off against Drumpf.

Most significantly, she unpacked democratic socialism – an ideology that’s still unfamiliar, and perhaps frightening, to many – for a massive late-night TV audience.

“I believe that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live,” she explained.

“What that means to me is health care as a human right, it means that every child no matter where you are born should have access to a college or trade-school education if they so choose it.

I think that no person should be homeless if we have public structures or public policy to allow for people to have homes and food and lead a dignified life in the United States.”

~Paul McCartney On Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Is TV At Its Best~

I’m a huge Beatles fan!

I love James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke Series.

Put them together and it’s an instant hit … at least in my mind and 21,677,891 view as of today.

It’s a bit long but for Beatles fans it’s not long enough!

Let’s take a trip down “Penny Lane”.

James Corden has set a very high standard with his Carpool Karaoke TV pieces. Only a million or two viewers watch him on CBS’ The Late Late Show when it’s broadcast, but YouTube and other social media sites extend Corden’s reach phenomenally.

A new one showcasing Sir Paul McCartney stands above all others.

In only a few days, it’s been viewed on YouTube more than 14 million+ times – and with very good reason. Not only does it have all the happiness and goofiness you expect Corden to deliver but this McCartney karaoke is also unexpectedly tender, touching and meaningful.
