The flag only gets to be a cultural symbol because Americans don't remember what the Civil War was really about.

A new Flannery O’Connor stamp doesn’t really convey the writer’s strange and majestic vision. And what happened to her signature glasses?

Can't say I totally agree with Le Guin, but she does make some good arguments in favor of resisting the money machine.

A little bit of sex ed for you today... ;-)
#femalesexuality  wow...there is no previous hashtag for female sexuality...
From ancient history to the modern day, the clitoris has been discredited, dismissed and deleted -- and women's pleasure has often been left out of the conversation entirely. Now, an underground art movement led by artist Sophia Wallace is emerging across the globe to challenge the lies, question the myths and rewrite the rules around sex and the female body.

Oh, so true. He is a shaman who lives in the magic of his poetry. I love me some Walt Whitman, especially the pre-1865 material.

ÇIĞLIK ( SANAT TARİHİNDEKİ ADI BOĞUNTU)TABLOSUNUN HİKAYESİ..
''Bir tarafta yaklaşık 321 milyon TL ye satın alınan çığlık, diğer tarafta 'sergilenen' duyulmayan 'çığlık'..''

Edvard Munch'un günlüğüne göre tabloyu Nice'den etkilenerek yapmıştır. Ressam günlüğünde anlattığına göre iki arkadaşıyla yürümektedir, bu sırada ise güneş batmaktadır ve kan kırmızısı rengindedir. Ressam kendini yorgun hissetmiş ve trabzanlara yaslanmıştır. İki arkadaşı ise yürümeye devam etmiştir. Ressam bu sırada doğanın çığlığını hissettiğini günlüğünde dile getirir. Ressam bu resmi yaparken hastadır ve bu yorgunluğunun oradan geldiği düşünülür. Amerikan sanat tarihçisi Robert Rosenblum'a göre bu resimdeki insan figürünün yüzü Paris'teki Musée de l'Homme'da bulunan Peru'dan gelmiş olan mumyanın( Fotoğraftaki) yüzünden etkilenerek yapılmıştır.

Çığlık tablosu, 119 milyon 922 bin 500 dolara (yaklaşık 321 milyon TL) satılarak müzayede yoluyla satılan en pahalı eser olarak tarihe geçmiştir. 
.......

Sanat eserlerinin( özellikle görsel sanatların) esin kaynaklarının ne olduğu araştırıldığında karşınıza sizi dehşete düşüren gerçekler çıkabiliyor. Munch' un esinlendiği söylenen Peru' dan gelen mumya Paris' te sergileniyor. (Mumyanın gerçeği, fotoğrafta görüldüğünden (Pompei' ye gittiğimde bu kadar etkilenmemiştim. Çünkü orada elleri bağlı mumyalar yoktu!) çok daha fazla dehşet verici; 
''Hangi insan böyle bir ölümü hak eder? Hangi insan böyle bir ölüme adını yazdırır? 'An' da asılı kalmış 'Çığlığı'...elleri bağlı... İnsan ,insanın en büyük düşmanı..
Bir tarafta yaklaşık 321 milyon TL ye satın alınan çığlık, diğer tarafta 'sergilenen' duyulmayan 'çığlık'..
