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.

The result is a powerful, mesmerizing reflection, a moving 2D art representation, of the state of today’s society.

‘We Are The World’ …. “🌎 We Always have Been, We Always will Be 🌎 …. “!!


~~July 13, 2018~~ 

TURBULENT TIMES

~We Always have Been, We Always will Be~

I find myself so pulled by the negativity and awful events taking place in our world nowadays. Sometimes it’s so overwhelming that I can’t really breathe.

I can’t fathom or wrap my head around the level of inhumanity, greed, vileness, evil, violence, crime, injustice and so much more that inhabits this world.

Music helps me.

Here’s an example.

AMERICAN IDIOT

~DRUMPF ARRIVES IN BRITAIN THIS FRIDAY~

This will be one several greetings that the current “American Idiot” will receive upon his arrival the the U.K.

We really have to hand it to the Bits!

From the Idiot of 2004 to the Idiot of 2018!! 

I think he’s so dense that the sarcasm will be wasted on him.

American Idiot is the seventh studio album by American rock band Green Day. Produced by Rob Cavallo, the album was released in the UK on September 20, 2004 and in the US on September 21, 2004 by Reprise Records.

When my band Green Day released our album American Idiot almost 13 years ago, we knew we were lobbing a grenade into the lap of the culture. With the fallout from 9/11 and the Iraq War revealing deep divisions in American society, our confrontational lyrics and attitude clearly touched a nerve, if our 15 million records sold are any indication. But now that enough time has passed to let the dust and controversy settle, I finally feel comfortable revealing that the “American Idiot” I sang about was none other than President George W. Bush.

The main reason we made George W. Bush the “American Idiot” is because he started a war.

Enough Time Has Passed To Reveal George W. Bush Was The ‘American Idiot’

Oh, the things ‘so-called President’ Drumpf will be greeted with this week when he visits London: demonstrators, a giant “Trump Baby” balloon – and a uniquely British musical protest.
For the past couple of weeks, a social media campaign has sought to make Green Day‘s classic 2004 jam “American Idiot” the No. 1 tune in the UK by the time Drumpf arrives Friday, July 13.

The “Get American Idiot to No.1 for Drumpf’s UK Visit” Facebook page has been advocating for some type of musical protest during a Drumpf visit to Britain pretty much since the start of his presidency. After Drumpf’s “working visit” – as opposed to a formal state visit – was announced in April, the effort went into overdrive.

‘”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.
