INTERESTING TIDBIT: How "handy" are you?
I remember projects I completed during my school years such as: (a) my Bowl of Fruit embroidery I completed during high school (I used a cross stitch for the bananas etc.), (b) the About Me embroidery project at my primary school (I used the chain stitch with bright colors such as orange and red), and (c) a skeleton drawing for art class at my high school.

Comments15/02/2017 #5 🐝 Fatima Williams@Chas ✌️ Wyatt I love the sketch that opens the buzz. A sketch tells much about an artist like writing does. I would love to see this waterfall someday ! I wish that I could travel like this someday ! My perception on snakes changed the day had myself talking to one or attempting to talk to one a couple of years ago. I wasn't scared of them after that. There's something about them than they were they were introduced to us. The evil one that had us thrown out of the Eden ! Infact I tried stopping few people attempting to kill a snake and they thought I was insane. I distracted them and the snake escaped. ( Chuckles )
I learnt so much about the devil's own disguise as they call it in this buzz. Always found venom in any creature fascinating including spiders , wonder if God had given Humans an ability like that. Oh wait we have boneless tongues instead.
I have watched the movie more than twice "The Sorcerer and the White Snake" (2011) and I enjoyed it both times. There's so many way to look at this buzz and I'm left contemplating ! Thank you :)11/02/2017 #4 Chas ✌️ Wyatt#2 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich, your comment is most welcome and very thoughtful. I know this piece is full of ambiguity and using another metaphor, winds its way around many diverse concepts. The snake's darting tongue aids it in the sense of smell, as well as regulating its body temperature, and of course we are all familiar with the euphimism of 'speaking with a forked tongue'. I hoped this piece would be thought-provoking and by your comment, I see, for you, it has been. I had never thought of a snake as being something "beautiful", until I had seen that Diamondback with its fresh skin and the vibrant colors. Thank you for your feedback.11/02/2017 #3 Pascal DerrienI am glad you shared it again Deb, :@Chas ✌️ Wyatt I was meant to drop a note when I saw the fantastic visual from yourself :-).I bumped once into a very small snake when I was kid I ran my head off in fear. Non wonder why I am in Ireland St Patrick kicked out the snakes according to the Irish legends :-) My fave part of the post is Susan Hawthorne's piece :-)11/02/2017 #2 Deb 🐝 Helfrich@Chas ✌️ Wyatt - Let me start by saying this piece moved me so viscerally, in so many conflicting ways, that I had to let it marinate before I could properly comment. I tend to be curious about snakes, I thought, but that open-mouth picture might be the most horrific thing I have ever seen (it might combine with a dentistry issue) Nonetheless, I will cherish the mental pictures you drew in describing your opening encounters as I have never had an opportunity to meet a waterfall loving snake, we just might get alone, both in separate reveries, a very appropriate distance apart.
You have brought together a number of themes. I hadn't actually thought about it, but there is a gender ambiguity when it comes to snake symbolism, although my feeling is that the slithering and darting tongue relate mostly to the dance temptation which is a basic human quality. Of course, cold-bloodedness is a plain manifestation of fear.
I really enjoyed the bit about the uses of venom, which I hadn't run across before. Although I found myself shaking my head, thinking, oh, but of course. Evolution is far more than survival of the fittest, at a more basic and important level it is the compounding and building on top of what came before.
Is not one of the big metaphors of the last few years about learning to tame our lizard brain?

What Kaufman showed is how people can be influenced by people that are designed to be the villain. The conditioning of people was the joke whether it is a person people like or as WWE now shows, millions made on creating pretend villains in a show that Kaufman himself created by claiming himself the Womens Wrestling Champion of the World.
Now to get into the joke here, remove the layer of the jibing, cajoling and inciting and understand that in case of Kaufman all of this is highly orchestrated and he knows what he is doing. This Atlantic article begins to peel away the performance of Kaufman - yet instead of people realizing this conditioning, the same conditioning is today used by that reporter called Vince McMahon to create a multi-billion dollar industry of combining near-vaudeville performance with traditional wrestling. Jerry Lawler an actual wrestler was always on in the joke - so WWE was born.
Atlantic Article on Kaufman
It is not everyday that German philosophical terms are used to describe what people view as a comedian, but once we understand that Kaufman was operating at the level of philosophy it shows an altogether different side - the only one that actually helps in understanding the genius of Kaufman.

The important thing here for me is not deletion but the meaning of deletion in the millennial world.
Deletion is one of the things I find about fascinating about this generation and deletion has expressed itself in the world of technology and that is why I am equally fascinated with snapchat, which I know @Javier 🐝 beBee and more so @Juan Imaz - but their fascination with snapchat is in terms of the startup itself and is marketing rather than art focused.
The problem I find with millennials is that have also been taught by technology to follow - so now you have these two contradictory forces at play - deletion and following. That to me is absolutely fascinating because I love contradictory forces - the best learning of all !!! Close15/02/2017 #11 Aurorasa Sima#9 That sounds right to me (gray).
I get what you are saying about the Guppy video.
The only troublesome fact this symbiotic relationship draws our attention to is that the line between internet and reality is becoming more and more blurry.
The link below the poppy buzz was the last video of Mars Argo before she vanished and deleted all of her content. While the new poppy refers to this video several times, it seems strange to make a video like this when your heart is so broken that you want to vanish from the face of the public.
I refuse to be manipulated into considering theories. Something those two - couple or separate - are very good at.
They are very successful at creating emotional connection with their viewers.
I am a philistine who rarely gets why people like a piece of art. Art does not penetrate me.. This art I get. It is art.15/02/2017 #10 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#8 I find Guppy personally interesting - that is where my nose immediately takes me to peer inside the whole Mars thing. This is where the attention is drawn inward at themselves rather than what is happening externally - removing the coating of love you and see what it is I am able to see underneath all that
It is original - that much got my antenna up for this and works at so many new levels into my dissection of personal brand and its effects - and that is my own discovery - and anything that moves that is a nice buzz.15/02/2017 #9 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#5 I can see where it fits now - I found an accommodation for this questioning of pop culture in GRAY
Took out Instruction Design and replaced it with
TEACHING & QUESTIONING
GRAY now equals
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT
TEACHING & QUESTIONING
REFLECTION & GROWTH
That is where this media now fits in my learning journey.
It is indeed a hypnotic and symbiotic relationship, I am glad you featured this as a buzz. Thanks15/02/2017 #8 Aurorasa Sima#6 They made good music too

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAbuVM5oVV4 View more#2 If only Andy Kaufman was still alive - Nothing will ever beat reading the Great Gatsby to an audience all night long
Remember Kaufman was the genius that noted the audience which still has not noted itself, which led to the rise of Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment, which we never associate with Kaufman.
What people follow is what people follow, I don't speak for followers - people are free to follow what they want, there is enough for me to chew on in Buy a T-Shirt and Delete Your Facebook, that is keeping my funny-bone occupied and my body most assuredly amused.
Let me now meditate on the tweet :
If someone wants a million followers they need a personal brand. This is the unfinished legacy of Andy Kaufman. The true genius generation isn't the millennial generation, it is the generation they give rise to. Close15/02/2017 #5 Aurorasa Sima#3 Yeah ... I even buzzed about it.
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@aurorasa/the-poppy-project View more#3 Yeah ... I even buzzed about it.
But be careful, dear City, you might get lost for hours in a weird but seductive world.
THAT is "social media advice" "how to create a brand" and "how to reach millennials" - and it´s also how to get people thinking and curious in our current setting with short attention spans.
I don´t want to be you right now and decide for a color. Close15/02/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 ManjitOMG!!! it gets better and better

Close15/02/2017 #2 Aurorasa Sima#1 Did you find his vid on personal branding too? A true artist. You as a seeker will come across "Mars Argo" and "That Poppy".. Millions of followers.
Forget the boring "how to market to millennials". He showed how to do it and it can´t be copied.
What he achieved with that poppy is impressive. And it makes me feel good about the young people. While some of us old people worry about the intellectual status of the younger generation I suggest that many older people do not even get this satire.
He inspired hundreds of youtubers to create videos discussing his projects. That´s the thing about personal branding. You also have to be interesting ...15/02/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank you, Thank you Aurorasa for finding this.

but with Titantic Sinclair's Buy this T-Shirt - man' even if I write 20 more things about the superficial side of personal branding - he says so well in under 2 minutes
Now I think I have to write a little more about Pee-BS (Personal Brand Superficiality) - not to be confused with PBS, a channel for people who don't want to watch superficial commercial television.
THANK YOU - this is deeper than just wryly hilarious. To deep for the superficial.😄 Close

- 09/02/2017How important is art talk to you? Do you need a lot of other people to network, connect and share with? Do you crave for talking with other artists or have you ever tried your best to get into circles that would do so?
Comments17/02/2017 #3 Eeva Maria Al-Khazaali#1 artist talk used to be the essence of my life. Now days I live and work in a remote location so it's very rare for me to meet colleagues. I kind of miss it, but don't know if I should be looking for people in my network to start over the conversations once lost.
Sorry for the loss of your friends, Chas.09/02/2017 #1 Chas ✌️ WyattI am not exactly sure how to respond to your questions. I had a friend who was a mural painter who passed away in 2012. We use to talk at length about art (among other things) and its place in the world. I do miss those conversations. We also had a group of us who would meet for informal figure drawing sessions; I miss those, as well. I will leave you with this quote about art; "Art is the stored honey of the human soul, gathered on wings of misery and travail." ~Theodore Dreiser, Life, Art, and America, 1917.
