Art + Architecture: Inside the Burj Khalifa

Most photos of the world’s tallest building tend to focus on its height. But did you know that the Burj Khalifa also features a world-class art program? Jaume Plensa’s World Voices is composed of 196 gold-plated cymbals suspended on titanium rods, representing each country around the world. Water droplets gently crash upon on the cymbals like pond reeds in rainfall, filling the skyscraper’s residential lobby with beautiful sound. Learn more

Leif Vollebekk

Saw Lief Vollebekk at Newport Folk. Absolutely great sound, and his singing style reminds me of a folkified Jeff Buckley. Check it out.

One really can’t say enough about this album. Wow.

six word poem 12/16/13

atonguewithbutsixwords:

Prompt: “I’m one of two Muslim girls at school who wear a hijab, and I’ve never really viewed it as much of an issue. But, I always get asked by my non-Muslim friends how I can stand wearing clothes like that and why do my parents force me to wear it. Can you write a poem about how wearing a hijab or a scarf or whatever you want to call it is a choice and a commitment that only you,as an individual, can enforce?”

Humans
wrongly
label pride
an anchor.

This is too relevant.

Two stars at most. Unless you decide differently.

"You can’t discuss sexism without first acknowledging that as a culture we define the heterosexual male as normal and everyone else by how different they are from that arbitrary normal, ‘arbitrary’ being the key word."Winston Rowntree

Cracked has been so on point lately.

We, for one, welcome our robot overlords, but agree with this chart’s point, too.

Thank you, Frank.
