The New Five-Foot Shelf of Books by Allen Ruppersberg (2001)

This image reminds me that my grandmother bought this set of books for my father when he decided to go to college (the first person on that side of my family to do so). I think they’re still in storage at my parents’ house, if marauders haven’t chewed them up.

Buddy Rich & Animal

I was reading something regarding the Jazz collections at the Library of Congress and realized that I had confused Max Roach & Buddy Rich somewhere along the line. Yes they are both amazing jazz drummers, but they have really different styles. What always makes Buddy Rich stand out for me is that he was the inspiration of Animal on the Muppet Show AND they played a drum battle together in 1980.

Enjoy

Arty Tuesday: 5 by Hongshu

July flew by so quickly, that I only realized yesterday that the first day of August was a Tuesday. And then I realized that there were five Tuesdays this month so that was my inspiration for art this month, the number 5.

The Mountain of the Five Cataracts by Chen Hongshou (1625)

I also learned that the cataract in the title refers to “a descent of water over a steep surface; a waterfall, especially one of considerable size.” Thanks, Dictionary.com
