I'm officially coining the word.
Hopefully, Oxford, or Urban Dictionary will pick it up this year.
I always tell my students, "When you cheat, you're only cheating yourself." This applies to all aspects of our lives.
I'm still trying to determine if it's competitive feeling with me. I think mostly, I'm like "oh no! Everyone's up and moving and my fat patootie is still stuck here!" But when I look at crazy fitbit step counts (whether they are real or fake - which I accidentally discovered could be done through logged activities), it just opens up a gateway of possibilities. I then say, "gee, I wonder if I could get to this number. Now, if you're lying, and I see your number...I'm going to actually duplicate that number the honest way. I got off the chair. So really, what does it matter if someone is bs'ing or not? They're only cheating themselves. lol
It would have been hilariously poignant if bragi meant "brag" in Italian.
If I had to sum up playing the piano in one image, it would be this one. Just the wonder of making a sound in an empty room, not counting the hearts emanating from the keys. What a great photographer!
The Self-Portrait is a unique craft. I have shot near 10,000 "selfies," in my lifetime, and I can confidently say there's only been about 2 shots at best when I felt I had captured the essence of who I was as a person. Of course, I shoot the selfies as a time stamp, not art.
Maybe I'm just a mediocre photog.
Anyway, I love these two self-portraits of photographer Sarah Angelina Acland. Photographers who are acquainted with that sly camera gaze always regard the lens with a tinge of caution as one does an adversarial colleague who won't think twice about spilling the beans on your less flattering traits. Keep your enemies close, as they say.
I just got the book btw. It's fantastic. Nothing like the photos you see online. I think the interweb is so enchanted with her nascent color work, her superb monochromatic half plate negative shots are underrepresented online. Check it out: http://goo.gl/qaSP7T
I also had my cellphone with me yesterday when I was driving through, and I got a chance to film a cop pulling some locals over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGC5rtQ3-Ro
The Art of Feng Zikai http://goo.gl/Kj132w
"Many of these works are straightforward messages about the virtues of not killing animals for food, or of nurturing a humble respect for living things....Feng’s complex image—a memory of life in Japan, or even semi-colonial Shanghai—is inscribed by Hongyi with an historical poem, and an explanation of the dish’s macabre symbolism of this “vicious cycle” of killing."
Hopefully this will take the wrinkles out of my woolen Amish skirts.
Beautiful rich colors.

Yay! I finally made the purchase after years of mulling it over. (I have the Kino / R.u.s.s.i.c.o. dvd Editions) This is my favorite movie of all time. I guess you could consider it my personal Citizen Kane or personal Godfather or personal Jersey Shore Shark Attack.
One problem. No English subtitles. Well, for me, that's not an issue because I've pretty much committed it to memory. The meaty lines are from Tarkovsky's father's poetry anyway. In pop American culture, I would have to say that Terence Malick's Tree of Life borrowed heavily from this film, The Mirror. No surprise, since next to Eisenstein, Tarkovsky is probably regarded as the greatest Russkie filmmaker.
From the opening scene where the metaphor of the creative process as learning to articulate via copying is portrayed as a boy being hypnotized to conquer his stuttering problem, through iterations of Pieter Bruegel's paintings, and a visual fugue advancing J.S. Bach's four vocal counterpoints in the form of interspersing narratives between different generations of a family, showing how we are ghosts of our ancestors, to the final creation mystery of Christian symbolism, this movie gives nearly as much as a John Waters classic.
I once attended a restored viewing of this film at Lincoln Center. I was a bit intimidated by all those New York cultural mavens - I mean come on! me? a real real New Jersoid housewife in an arthouse full of well-read intelligentsia? But by intermission time, we were all chatting it up by the coffee stand (Bob says you need a lot of coffee to make it through any Tarkovsky film, he thinks The Expendables was too slow). I was telling some old Russian bloke that my Bach fugal theory of Tarkovsky shots are essentially a variation of Glenn Gould's counterpoint voices in his interviews with Canadian residents in The Solitude Trilogy. He was like "hmmpfh! really!"
You can watch the entire film here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Yn9q25NWAw) and then mute/block/report/uncircle me.
