Art Of The Week: Spy vs. Spy

The Arts Mechanical

When I was growing up one of the magazines that was always there was the comic magazine, MAD.  Now I don’t think that I ever bought a copy, because to me mad tended to be pretty stupid.  For the most part I got the feelings that the writers just weren’t trying very hard. The exception was Spy vs. Spy. The premise was simple, there were these two spies, one dressed in white, the other black. In every comic one or the other would attempt to create a fatal accident for the other. Usually these things would backfire, causing  the initiator to come to a bad end.  The methods used and how the little scene played out were always creative and amusing, with a little bite to them.

Spy vs Spy was created by Antonio Prohias, a Cuban exile who before Spy vs Spy was biting Batista and later Castro. …

LEADING IN DIFFICULT TIMES, Conversations Among the Clergy of San Mateo County, CA

Jamie Dedes' THE POET BY DAY Webzine

2792b2bb-5918-4580-bf07-9355acdf4291It’s not poetry but it’s important.  As we struggle to understand, to digest pending or potential changes with the new U.S. administration, to figure out what we can do to help insure stability and to ease the pain of others, those who nurture our spiritual lives are struggling with the same questions.  Through interfaith collaboration clergy support one another, coming together in conversation, in protest and in solidarity as they stand in the love of our country, all people and the world.

img_2075On Wednesday, November 30, 2016, twenty-five clergy representing Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Unitarian Universalism and Christianity responded to a call to meet for a working lunch at the Congregational Church of San Mateo to discuss Leading in Difficult Times. I was a butterfly on the wall with the good fortune to listen in.

They discussed the same concerns and fears that you are writing about in your poems, essays and editorials: scapegoating, suppression of free speech, immigration policy…

Friday Song 12-2-16

Never heard song before!

Life of an El Paso Woman

Hi everyone and happy Friday! We finally made it through another week! This week has been filled with lots of ups and downs for me. I can’t believe it’s already Dec. 2! I’m ready to see this year go away. 🙂 I couldn’t find a lot of information about this song. According to Kudos Records, UK born DJ Graham helped with the creation of “Atravessar.” Since he moved to Amsterdam in the 80’s, he’s well-known in the Dutch nightclub music scene. DJ Graham is also referred to as the ‘Godfather of Jazzdance’ by the Dutch press. “Atravessar” was released in 2006. I  was able to pick up some of the song’s lyrics. I’ve liked this song for a couple of years now. I heard it for the first time on Pandora in 2014. I thought it was a nice and upbeat song to share, especially on a Friday. Have you heard this song before? What do you think of it? Have a good weekend, everyone! I’ll see you this weekend!
