Live ants dig tunnels inside clear acrylic enclosures in a series of living sculptures by artist Brad Troemel. The nine sculptures — each filled with a clear gel that doubles as ant food — are part of Troemel’s ongoing exhibition LIVE / WORK at Tomorrow gallery in New York City through November 9th, 2014.

Ke$ha is a perfect example of how the media loves to make intelligent girls seem dumb and bitchy even though they are actually smart and caring. Ke$ha isn’t far from being a feminist icon but the media continues to label her as a dumb drunk party girl.
and Ke$ha is all for loving yourself and equality but she continues to receive harassment from mainstream media. Enough harassment to the point that she developed an eating disorder because of it. She is an example of how horrible and sexist the music industry is.
Ke$ha stands in the category of “gifted genius”, she scored near perfect (1500) on her SAT’s and has an IQ of 140
After I ran across Kesha’s cover of “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright" (one of my favorite songs in the world) I did a bunch of research and discovered that her persona seemed to have been invented entirely for marketing purposes…a fact which is much sadder given the apparently abusive relationship she had with her producer.
This needs far more notes than it already has.
The hypocrisy of the police state.

PAINTING OF CREEPY KID WITH CAT
This may be one of the scariest paintings of a creepy little kid and her cat I’ve ever seen on PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow.” According to the show, it’s a Folk Art Portrait of a Girl and Her Cat, ca. 1830.
When the art was brought to the roadshow, the owner had an interesting background story about the painting — it has a curse!
The owner said: “This painting was given to my mother by a woman in Louisville, Kentucky (circa 1938). My grandparents had an antique shop. And on one of the trips to gather items for the shop, she took my mother, who was then five years old. So they were in this house in a third-story attic and my mother sat down in front of a frameless picture and adored it. And the lady was kind enough to offer to give it to her. She was thrilled. But the condition of the gift was she could never, ever sell it. She could only give it away. So, sometime shortly after that my granddad framed it. And when they were buying items for the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Museum in Williamsburg, they approached my grandmother to purchase this painting. And she was ready to do it, being the astute businesswoman that she was. And my mother said, “No, no, no, you can’t do that! It has a curse on it.” Because she couldn’t sell it.
Appraiser Marybeth Keene said this about the art:
"This is an exciting folk art painting. It’s on a wood panel, unbroken. It’s a child. And usually children are part body. This is a three-quarter length child. It has a wonderful lacy bonnet, you know, with the little bows in it. But the best part is this. I know you call this this cat with the scary eyes. But he is so terrific with those funny little eyes. And then all this hand-painted detail on this little stool. Look how funny her little arm is in comparison to her head."
"There’s something going on here. I can see something going on here. It’s under layers and layers of varnish. And it probably should be reframed. It is unsigned. And I’ve asked a few of my colleagues. There isn’t anybody that we can really attribute this painting to. But I think with a little research, you probably could attribute it to some known painter. The date is 1830s, so it’s a really nice early painting. However, since this is not a family relative, I’ll tell you. She’s not the most attractive child."
It’s appraised in value at a whopping $30,000 to $40,000!
