Well, I'll start out with Charlie Chaplin, as he shares my birthday - April 16!
Weird Tales - nice site devoted to the pioneering horror magazine, where H.P. Lovecraft flourished..
Another Form of Intervention II site devoted to modernism, includes some great flash art..
Literary Kicks - areas for the Beat Generation, The Flower Children, the Decadents, and more..
Prisoner Art - three very good artists showcased here..
Cellblock Visions - exhibition of prison art
Downington PA - smalltown America lovingly captured here..
Scotland's Far North
Family Slide Project - Lisa has done superb work, using PhotoShop and other tools, to restore over 50 years worth of family slides. Some are set in California, most seem to be in Saskatchewan. To me, this work transcends the specific people involved, but rather speaks to fading memories of family and place that we all share..
The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.
