Quote

"How do we explain to the larger society the benefits of this civic investment when they have been convinced that the purpose of arts education is mostly to produce more artists—hardly a compelling argument to either the average taxpayer or financially strapped school board? We need to create a new national consensus. The purpose of arts education is not to produce more artists, though that is a byproduct. The real purpose of arts education is to create complete human beings capable of leading successful and productive lives in a free society."

American Uncanny: Paintings by Andrew Wyeth.

Was reminded of the spookiness of Andrew’s paintings after visiting the Farnsworth Museum today in Rockland, Maine. Three generations of Wyeths — N.C., Andrew, and Jamie — were inspired by the Maine coast near Rockland and off of Monhegan Island.

Oh man, I love Andrew Wyeth.

Hail Liz Lemon full of cheese curls
Our feminist ideals are with thee
Blessed art thou among fans of Star Wars
And blessed art though among the socially inept
Holy Lemon, mother of TGS
Give us the strength of Oprah
to find the balance so we may have it all

Amen.

So husband called me this afternoon.

Him: “Honey, I have a quick question. And I’m asking you on speakerphone so you don’t have time to google it.”
Me: “Um, okay. Shoot.”
Him: “What’s the name of Jabba the Hutt’s pet?”
Me: “Salacious Crum. Who’s asking?”
Him: “You are recieving a slow clap from the dental office. Lt. Chia didn’t believe me when I told him my wife knows everything about Star Wars.”
Me: “Just the original trilogy.”
Him: “I know.”
Me: “Because I don’t believe in the prequels.”
Him: “I know, honey.”
Me: “Has Lt. Chia seen ‘The People Vs. George Lucas’? Because it’s really—-“
Him: “You’re a big nerd. Love you.”
Me: “YOU KNEW WHAT I WAS WHEN YOU PICKED ME UP.”
