Below is a photo of the Betsy Ross flag prominently displayed at the 2013 inaugural of Barack Obama, of whom I was not a great admirer, but who at least did not hold completely insane views like displaying the original Stars and Bars is an endorsement of slavery.
“As an artist,” he says, “I like to know what sells.”
Right! Leave the starving artist shtick to some other starry-eyed clod.
The article delivers on its promise, enumerating the most popular genres, themes, subjects, media, colors, sizes, etc.
“Sizes”?! Heck yeah, sell ’em by the yard.
Van Gogh, to my knowledge, did not sell a single painting in his lifetime. He did not “know what sells.”
Iy saddens me to think that if only we could reverse the hands of time and make the information in this article available to him, perhaps he could have made something of himself and still been alive today.
There are a lot of cyclists in Irvine . . . if you visit the local coffee shops on the weekend, you’ll see a bunch of them after their ride, usually in groups, all togged out like Tour de France participants.
While actual bike racers are very lean, these folks ironically are always among the fattest people in the establishment, a fact emphasized by their skin-tight attire.
I’m tempted to ask, “Why don’t you ride in a t-shirt and a pair of shorts, given that 1) your racing togs just emphasize what a physical mess you are, and 2) no amount of aerodynamic material is going to make you a bike racer because you’re too fat.”

I was leading a hot yoga class when Access Hollywood came on one of the TVs . . . they were raving about Charlize Theron as Mother of the Year if not Mother of All Time because her 3-year-old son announced “I’m not a boy” and this dingbat decided to roll with it and raise him as her “daughter.”
Even a crackpot celebrity trying to make noise and draw attention to herself must realize that a 3-year-old has no conception of what “I’m not a boy” means. Right?
Maybe he means he’s a space alien. Maybe next week he’ll decide he’s a golden retriever — then what? Put him on a leash and go for a walk?
Anderson Cooper is saying that CNN has never made any claims against President Trump . . . I’d put my research team to work on that if I had a research team, but since I don’t, I’ll just point out that 99 percent of CNN’s panel guests for the past two years made claims against President Trump, which I don’t think was accidental.
There was a period of several months, for example, where Michael Avenatti was on CNN probably more often than Cooper himself, for no reason other than to make claims against President Trump.
(Whatever happened to Avenatti, by the way? CNN seems to have lost interest in him.)
There’s a technical distinction between making claims against someone and providing two years of airtime to other people making claims, but it’s not a credible distinction.
Cooper also likes to say that President Trump was not cleared of Russian collusion, which is another technicality . . . a two-year investigation that uncovers no illegalities is not exactly the same as being “cleared.” There’s always one more rock somewhere that could be looked under, so it’s never possible to state definitively that nothing happened.
But “not cleared of Russian collusion” is a phony baloney phrase that can be applied to anyone. Has Anderson Cooper been cleared of Russian collusion?
