I just had the unnerving/rewarding experience of reading my own ratemyprofessors page. I’m not very in need of other’s approval but it’s a different thing when trying to assist someone (or help or grow). I’m not even doing that sort of thing anymore but it still makes me wonder how I might improve in this area or with that tendency. And it’s rewarding to have some responses that suggest I was fair and challenging…in a helpful way, I trust. I wonder what a similar page might say about my current job performance? And what, o reader, would your page say about your current job performance?
Liverpool’s trying to redeem themselves with a win over Inter Milan. And save Rafa’s job. And in the 30th minute, red card for Inter! Liverpool had far more shots before the sending off. The 36th minute sees some larger gaps than the Reds were already finding. Woohoo.
But actually, it’s probably because you’re sick. Just like everyone else.
The closest thing in the US to F1, Champ Car and IRL, are recombining. That’s good for the sport.
In Geneva, Alfa Romeo’s production 8C Spider will be unveiled. Only 500 people will have this inspiring piece of motoring art sitting in their driveways.
The 2009 Jaguar XJ portfolio is looking…well…it’s another Jag. It’s beautifully the same old thing.
My friend was at the MoMA in NY, NY this past weekend and sent me a couple ads that I might just enjoy. And I did. This advertising poster by Hohlwein is from the 1912 Audi show. The colors and pattern on the chauffeur’s coat are so attractive…but what’s he doing? Listening for the quiet Audi engine?
Klimt himself “said, ‘On the left a group of figures, the beginning of life, fruition, decay. On the right, the globe as mystery. Emerging below, a figure of light: knowledge.’ Critics were disturbed by its depiction of men and women drifting in an aimless trance. The original proposal for the theme of the painting was ‘The Victory of Light over Darkness’, but what Klimt presented instead was a dreamlike mass of humanity, referring neither to optimism nor rationalism, but to a ‘viscous void'” as one critic describes it (wiki).
I’ve never had President’s day off before. And I had a lovely time. I prepared for the imminent arrival of a projector. I might be a little excited.
