I Say Eh Man

It’s not often that one of your favorite reggae songs is featured on a hit TV show. And it’s not often that twenty-some odd years later you can find the clip that you remember so well. But thanks to YouTube and the pervasive power of the internet, we can enjoy so much that was once forgotten. A big thank you to all the appreciators out there who find stuff like this and give it to the world. Black Uhuru + The Cosby Show = good for so many reasons…

Kate MacDowell Ceramic Sculptures

Kate MacDowell quotes C.S. Lewis to describe her art…We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough.  We want something else which can hardly be put into words–to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. – C.S. Lewis.With that in mind, her hand-sculpted porcelain sculptures inspire creativity and thought…check out her portfolio on her site, here!

Emily Leonard – New Work

Emily Leonard is one of our favorite local artists here in Nashville. From her site: “Emily Leonard’s paintings transcend any singular goal; they present themselves with an unusual clarity and apparent depth. They are at once landscapes and contemporary paintings.” Her work is featured in a new book called Speak for the Trees, where she wrote something we really identify with, “I am always looking for something to unfold, to know again what I have known forever. I am always looking for that which has always been, for salvation and to let it settle at my body.”You definitely have to see these works in person to appreciate their beauty and mystery. Her current exhibition is at The Rymer Gallery through Jan. 2nd 2010…so try to see it before it’s too late!

Album Cover Homages

Very cool site from The Knockoff*Project, where they have compiled album cover copy-cats over the years. They are always looking for updates and undiscovered knockoffs, so drop them a line if you can think of one they’ve forgotten. Some of our favorites are below including Atmosphere, T-Rex, Ween, Marvin Gaye, Camp-lo, Elvis, The Clash, Depeche Mode and Black Sabbath…
