Why Republicans should never be allowed around money or any money-making enterprise - Happy Nice Time People    →

…Or at least not THOSE types of Republicans. The Paul Ryan ones. The Ayn Rand ones. The ones who believe earning money by working is for the little people, while investing—ah, investing—is the highest good and deserving of all the rewards, tax-free, forever and ever, amen.

Lest you think I’m exaggerating, take a look at Steven Mallas’s latest work of objectivist genius at The Street:

“The Big Bang Theory” makes a lot of money. The show is worth billions of dollars of revenue in the broadcast and syndication arenas; how much of that is profit is hard to come by, but it has to be significant. Even so, it is my conclusion that [CBS CEO Leslie] Moonves and [Time Warner CEO Jeff] Bewkes should not have given in to the cast and instead called it a day on the show.

At issue is CBS & Time Warner’s decision to pay the top three stars of The Big Bang Theory what they’re worth to the show, i.e., about $1 million per episode, similar to what the cast of Friends was making near the end of that series 10 years ago.

Mallas concedes The Big Bang Theory will still make “significant” profit for the two companies and their investors… but NOT AS MUCH AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. Therefore, cancel that shit.

by Anna Carey Posted on August 29, 2014

Russian-born artist Sergei Isupov investigates binaries in human relationships — male and female, good and evil, beautiful and grotesque. Using clay as both a material for three-dimensional expression and as a canvas for his illustrations, Isupov capitalizes on all properties of what he finds to be the most open medium. He sculpts human and animal figures, and then adds illustrations in glaze. The paintings diffuse into the clay’s surface, like tattoos on his sculptures’ skin. Taken together, the two- and three-dimensional elements of his work establish a compacted but powerful scene of emotions and narratives.

While Isupov pulls from real experiences and moments in his life, these only provide inspiration for the little details in each piece. His works possess a much broader universalism as they are not meant to capture a specific person or time. The identities of his figures remain anonymous — they serve as allegories for general human emotions or themes in relationships.

In their ambiguity, the narratives are remote and uncomfortable. Bodies lie on the ground and embrace in unnatural positions. Animals talk eye to eye with their human counterparts, leaning inward and speaking in hushed tones. The influence of the Surrealist movement on Isupov’s work is obvious. Proportions are perverted and exaggerated. He invents his own outlandish creatures, usually monsters. Although there is something off-putting in his work, his figures evoke empathy and a feeling of comfort.

This vase is similar to vases that I have wood fired in the past. Those vases were finished with iron slip decoration and a shino glaze. This vase has three different colors of under-glaze on it. I plan on finishing this vase with a pearl glaze and a fake wood ash glaze.

I have been thinking about texture, under-glazing, and glazes for cone 6. I feel cone six is going to be fun to work in.
