Defining Maverick

Here’s the only Maverick I want on my team – James Garner.

Now think about this, Cuppa Joe pointed out last night on Twitter during the VP debate that Palin kept referring to her maverick “teammate” and the maverick “team”.

Ummm, mavericks don’t play on teams; they’re more of the loner type.

It’s kind of like saying “I’m a subservient anarchist.”

Meat Art

No, it’s not the Bacon of the Month Club’s mailing for October.

It’s art.

Artist Simone Racheli uses paper mache, wax and other stuff to create full-sized objects that appear to be made out of meat. It’s a bit gross, but also compelling. I can’t look away.

If you can read Italian, here’s a story about the exhibition in an Italian art magazine.

If you don’t read Italian, InventorSpot has some more details about the exhibit.

Feed Em Fish Heads for Feel Good Friday

After all the bailout talk and last night’s debate, I think we needed something a little light hearted.

I had forgotten how long the intro is on this video.

Your patience will be rewarded.

For more FGF, visit Ginger, Newscoma, Scout, Cluttered Brain, Sista Smiff, Left Wing Cracker, Sharon Cobb, GoldnI, MonsterMash40, LeBlanc, Hollywood Ron, Nashville Is Talking, Russ McBee, Beziat and Jag.

There may be more out there, but I ran out of time to look for them.

Happy Friday to all.
