Bitters

Just a few things today…

Obama is copying me! Check out this post where I say:

Q: So who do you think is gonna win the GOP nomination now?
A: It doesn’t actually matter!

He just said the same thing!

Do you know what’s nice? Banksy:


So is this #occupy protester’s costume:

More fuel for his fire, er, sparkly ribbons: a study in the UK has found that bankers cost society £8.40 for every £1 they produce, whereas childcare workers generate between £7 and £9.50 worth of benefits to society for every £1 they are paid. (original study here).

And now … dead people. Well, one anyway. Meet L’Inconnue de la Seine (the unknown woman of the Siene), an unidentified young woman whose death mask became a popular fixture on the walls of artists’ homes after 1900.

Also, here are some people who are (probably) dead: Invisible Mothers. I guess it was common practice back-in-the-day for mothers to hide beneath blankets and/or tapestries and hold their children for portraits. That whole website is pretty awesome.

Finally, something very youthful and lovely: pretty music by Laura Marling.

Enjoy!
