THIS GUY IS A BETTER DANCER THAN YOU Character comedian and UCB alum Nathan Barnatt apparently showed up in character at an open casting call for Kimberly Cole's latest video and guess what? Dude totally nailed it! After posting his audition video Cole tweeted her approval offering him the actual gig! You may recognize Keith Apicary's (Barnatt's socially awkward but totally jiggy B-Boy alter-ego) sweet moves and sweeter wardrobes from videos like Yelle's "Comme Un Enfant (Freaks Remix)" and Madeon's "Pop Culture (Dance Video)" or you might recognize him from a few viral video ads for Skittles. Considering Barnatt's viral marketing history we can't rule out for sure that this whole thing isn't some clever little scheme but that doesn't make it any less awesome when Apicary blows the minds of some limber video ho's or when one aforementioned dancer candidly calls him a "retard." @jshmsh

Songwriting Exercises - Handout Songwriting Exercises by Joel Mabus Scaffolding Stuck? Here’s an old trick to get you going. Julie Heffernan from Julie Heffernan’s Constructions of Self Julie Heffernan creates sensuous figurative painting, like co-Yale MFAS, John Currin and Linda Yuskavage, but her luminous oils are patently unique among them and most working artists today. A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments. They avoid the mawkish or macabre by virtue of an evocative 17th century Baroque styling and the dignity with which she handles her primary subject, herself.

countryside furniture When George Lailey died in 1958 a craft going back more than 2000 years died with him. He was the last person in England to make a living turning wooden bowls on a foot powered pole lathe. In medieval times nearly everybody in Britain ate from wooden bowls every day. They were beautiful, functional bowls that linger on in memories of Goldilocks but were killed off by the industrial revolution and cheap pottery. I became fascinated by the craft whilst working in woodland conservation and set about reviving the lost technique, first learning the blacksmithing skills I needed to forge the specialised turning tools.
