This is romance?!

November 29, 2012

If you aren’t watching Crash Course on Youtube than you totally should be. Lets face it, the modern American educational system isn’t something to celebrate but there is a way you can educate yourself and for those like myself who are out of school and drowning in the so-called “real world” the hum drum of everyday can be mind-numbing. So keep learning.
I love this video because it calls into question something that we all just kind of accept as fact.
“Romeo and Juliet is the greatest love story ever written!”
Or some equivalent. Really?! If you break down the story to the bear bones its more of a tragedy of stupidity and poor decision making. Lots of life lessons like don’t lie or fake your own death, don’t kill anyone, or fall for a chick one night and marry her the next day- especially if she’s only 13.

Tis The Season of Pumpkin Carving

October 16, 2012

One of my favorite things about Halloween, as I’m sure it is for many of you, is carving the pumpkin and roasting it’s most delicious seeds.  A bonus though, would be to receive a prize for all of your creative handy work  that went into painstakingly carving that mofo.  Fortunately along with pumpkin season nowadays comes carving contests, and quite a few of them actually.  I have compiled a list of the ones I could find still running so please submit away!  If you don’t win, do not fret; you can always email your photos to us at dailyblowhole@gmail.com and will post them for you on the site.

Artist Spotlight- Michael Prosper

October 9, 2012

Everyday is Halloween- by Michael Prosper

Usually when choosing an artist for our artist spotlight, the time of the season doesn’t really apply, but in this case it helped me pick.  Michael Prosper is a English born sculptor and painter that currently resides in Florida with his wife. and kitten.

I love the silhouette style he has and the way each painting seems to stay within one simple color palette. No extreme variations in color; therefore, your attention is equally devoted to the entire painting and not all over the place.

Lucky for us Mr. Prosper has a Halloween collection out, so please go to his site and check out all of his current works and past collections.

JACK DAWSON COULD HAVE LIVED!

October 8, 2012

According to the MythBusters, Jack’s death in the film Titanic (1997) could have been avoided.   Initially James Cameron refutes this claim, but along with his assistance, the MythBusters prove that jack could of hopped up on that board with Rose.  How?  Just Watch.
