Adoring Aerial Animation

Although I watch a lot of TV, it isn’t too often that I’m so compelled by something I’ve watched that I feel the need to share it. However, when I was watching America’s Got Talent this week, I absolutely fell in love with Aerial Animation and wanted to share what I loved. So creative!

Color Me Badd at Monarch

My beaux and I originally met on the How About We dating site. A few months ago, we joined their relatively new site for couples where you pay a monthly fee and get a monthly date for free along with discounts on various dates. We’ve done some fun things through them although I’m not sure it’s worth the $18 monthly fee. A recent example of that was our date at Monarch, which was a fun date but not worth the $18 we paid just to get a free date for the month.

Color Me Badd

The date was called Color Me Badd and was supposed to be a date for two at happy hour at Monarch. It was advertised as having 90’s slow jams and risque coloring plus two free vodka drinks. I assumed that there would be dancing since I’ve been to the two-level bar before but the bottom level with the dance floor was actually closed so it was just lounging. The music wasn’t danceable anyway; there were no slow jams and whatever was playing was more in the family of heavy metal than anything nostalgic.

Beautiful Art Peacocks by Laurel Roth

I originally discovered the work of artist Laurel Roth a few years ago when researching for my crochet blog because she has a set of crochet pigeon suits that are adorable. Roth recently did a local fellowship at DeYoung museum (where so many of my favorite artists spend time!) so I wanted to check out what she’s been creating. That’s how I discovered her pretty bejeweled upcycled peacock art, although she actually created it in 2011.

More from the Cartoon Art Museum

A couple of days ago I mentioned that I’d been to the Cartoon Art Museum recently to see a women’s comic artist exhibit and a Ninja Turtles art exhibit. Here are a few more things I saw during that visit.

Some things never change!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles … 30 Years?!

Yesterday I mentioned that I’d been to the Cartoon Art Museum recently. I went to go see a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles art exhibit. It’s there because it’s the 30th anniversary of the Ninja Turtles. It was so weird to see childhood toys and drawings that were in my home now placed in a museum as vintage ephemera! I wasn’t interested in TNMT myself but my little brother and sister loved the movies (VHS tapes at the time) and had all of the action figures. To think that those are now museum-worthy is just so weird!
