The Lover, Marguerite Duras (via manko-lush)
Well, beauty comes largely from within….
Clothes (or none) can display it, hide it, or accentuate it.
But recall (I, Pete, said this):
"Beauty is in the Eyes, Ears, Nose, Tongue, and Touch of the Beholder/Receiver." So, those that like something, like it. If it does no harm to others, well GOOD! And if you don’t like something well there is lots of: Art, Sculpture, Music, Smells, Things to taste (Food, Drink), and things to "Feel" in the world. So, go find something else….
And that is my 2 cents on that.
this is so way beyond cool. goodtypography:

Yes, I can relate to this. But I have incredible dreams. Some involve very Magic People.

Going to be saying this on my next birthday
Yes. Agree totally
Yes, I have loved some really neat (to me, Pete) pieces of art. They were worthless in the marketplace, though…. Now the marketplace DOES speak. But sometimes, even it has trouble putting valuations on things. Valuation, is a human task. ”Let’s look at the Value. Then… we’ll look at the price.”
On the other hand, sometimes when you speak up, well, a lot of people do mot like that. So IF you speak well, be prepared for the nasties.

Nice! Thanks guys!
Meet Amy Burvall, a true beliver in the power of humor and music, sharing, and transparency. Better yet, take a look at her touching and beautifully-composed introduction video about Hawaii, obstacles and costume celebrations using Popcorn Maker.
Remix this project, or make your own introduction to the world from scratch at Webmaker.org.
Unfortunately, she has no sense of timing, and no one can possibly follow this machine gun speed presentation. And that takes away a lot from it. She’s not a Vulcan, people.
To defend her:
Do note, she has no formal training, and little experience, though, which is why this particular thing is amateurish. This is purely a self taught thing she has done. Her real vids (see link) were made by her creative partner, who is a genius. And because this thing cannot be stopped, slowed down, or rewound on Tumblr.. you may have to watch several times to get any gist of it. Unless you know her…. It will seem like a waste of time. But you may get value from it.
NB: If you really want the full story, Google Amy Burvall and Herb Mahelona, and see the TedX Honolulu link.
Her real vids are here: http://www.youtube.com/user/historyteachers/videos?view=0

(Yes I know, listening to the entire “Henry the 8th” Video is torture, especially since you want to find out the meat of the story. Please, do persevere. I guarantee true value.)
