      SLOTHING IS THE NEW TWERKING

      There are some movie characters out there whose presence transcends time and space. Sloth, from the movie The Goonies, is one of those characters. You could show a picture of Sloth to someone in their 50's or a 5-year-old and they will know that beautiful Baby Ruth-eating face. The movie was a huge success, and two of the Goonies cast, Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings ) and Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men ) went on to big Hollywood careers. But if it weren't for his untimely death in 1989 from being too awesome (aka, his heart couldn't keep up with his awesomeness) Sloth actor John Matuszak would have out shined them all. 

      They don't give out internet memes to just anyone.You have to really earn that prize with hard work and dedication to your craft, whatever that may be. With that said, I give you "Slothing" or as it's known in the graphic artist circles: "Intro to Photoshop". First, you take a good long hard look at Sloth.

      Have you got it? Have you burned that beautiful visage into your brain? Ok, good. Now find any photo you want and drop it into Photoshop. The last step, you mash that face up really good. I suggest the "liquify tool". Done! You are now part of the cool kids meme of Slothing.

      YOU NEED ART IN YOUR LIFE AND ON YOUR WALLS

      People tend to think that art is out of their reach, that art is something for wealthy celebrities like Leo DiCaprio, who by the way has one of the most impressive art collections you've ever seen. There are the posh art galleries that are "Invite Only" and by the time the doors open, the shows are entirely sold out. That's great for the artists, but not for everyone else. But there is hope. Almost every town has it's lonely artists striving to make it. But people forget that before artists hit it big, they are just like us, trying to make a living. If you want to see art or own art you are going to have to seek it out and you will be glad you did. The big art collectors only buy art when the artist has made it onto the public's radar, but that can be years in the making. If you make a point to go to small galleries and school art shows, you may discover the next big thing all on your own.

       

      You may be asking yourself what's the point of this post? Our friend Mike Mitchell is curating an art show and you should go. There will be loads of different artists there, a regular buffet of talent.

      You may not be able to buy an original, but you can probably afford a print. Prints are awesome, they are usually pretty inexpensive, come in standard sizes so you can buy a frame no problem, and then Voila! You now have real art on your wall. People will look at you with all new respect and admiration as a person with fine taste. Do yourself a favor, support the arts where you live or online, bottom line is just get involved. Art is awesome.

      HOW ONE MAN CHANGED THE WORLD

      Once every few thousand years comes an invention that changes the world. Changes the world in a way that effects every man, woman, and child. Some would argue that it was the automobile or the computer but those people would be wrong, dead wrong. In fact, some people would call those people idiots. Because we all know that the single most important invention was invented by Dominique Ansel. Did he cure cancer? Find life on Mars? Purify water for 3rd world nations? No, he combined the flaky goodness of a croissant with the heavenly perfection of a donut. May I present you with the Cronut.

      Ansel was recognized in 2013 with the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef. And if all goes according to plan, he will receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his Cronut. Because if there is one thing that can bring all humanity together is fried dough and sugar. Did I mention that they are pumped full of cream? No? I didn't did I? They are pumped full of cream, might as well be pumped full of angel tears because this is as close to heaven as some of us may ever get. 

      There is only one place in the entire world to buy a Crount and that is at Dominque's Bakery in New York. They are released every morning and sell out within minutes. For those of you lucky enough to live in New York, you should probably drop out of school, quit your job, abandon your family, postpone that life saving surgery and go wait in line. There can be nothing more important than tasting one of these Cronuts.

      REGULAR SHOW

      Seems like every time you turn on the tv, some channel is proclaiming that they have number one show on television. I mean really, NCIS can't possibly be the number one show unless you start narrowing down your criteria by a lot. Like, the number one show about Navy cops who have desks facing each other. I don't see how that can be true when everyone knows the number one show is clearly Regular Show.

      The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a Blue Jay named Mordecai and a Raccoon named Rigby. Both "work" as groundskeepers at a park. That's all you pretty much need to know. That, and it's probably the funniest show you aren't watching. If it makes you feel better, the two main characters are twenty-three years old, so it's not for little kids like you might think.
