This 103-year-old philosopher's to-do list will get you through self-isolation

Like everybody else, Romanian philosopher Mihai Sora is stuck inside. He is keeping busy for a 103-year-old man, and keeping the world up to date on his indoor adventures with Facebook. His to-do list is impressive, but not so impressive it can't be used by most people. The social isolation necessitated by COVID-19 is difficult for a lot of people. Between being mostly stuck inside, having reduced contact with other people, and the creeping boredom that comes after you've done everything on your...

Soothing, Uplifting Resources for Parents & Caregivers Stressed by the COVID-19 Crisis

How good a six was the sliced six in Moeen Ali’s 11-ball 39 against South Africa?

Moeen Ali sliced six (via YouTube) Moeen Ali hit four sixes in England’s last ball victory over South Africa in Durban. Because he’s Moeen Ali and hasn’t even heard of ugly batting, each and every one of them was a languid, spaghetti-armed thing of wonder. In all, Moeen hit seven lovely boundaries in his 11-ball innings. Being as the last of those 11 deliveries resulted in his dismissal, this means that Moeen hit 70 per cent of his non-terminal shots for a lovely boundary, whic...

Force and resistance I have a vivid memory of being very little, maybe about 7 or 8 years old, and my mother telling me to do something – when suddenly, a light bulb went off over my head. “You can’t make me,” I observed, with dawning astonishment. My mother was a patient, loving woman, but she was a Taurus, and I could see her nostrils start to flare. But I has...

The Annual Reese Family Christmas Letter - 2019

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from the Reese family! I’m sorry to report that we weren’t able to achieve our goal of teaching our dogs to bark the notes of The Twelve Days of Christmas. I had this vision of how awesome it would be for the UPS guy to ring the doorbell and have our poodle and Great Dane serenade them with a Christmas song. Maybe next year. Here’s a little rundown of 2019 at the Reese household: Kylee is a sophomore at Hurricane High. I don’t know what kind of ti...

Bob Ross couple's costume and other Halloween night surprises in my neighborhood

This Bob Ross "painted" happy little trees onto their partner's face all evening. I've lived in Alameda, California going on 10 years now and I'm always surprised by what I see on Halloween night — it's a real circus! Each year, thousands of revelers head to my neighborhood in the Fernside district to trick or treat. And my neighbors go all out with decorations, costumes and candy. I've heard from friends in the busier parts of the neighborhood that it's easy to hand out over 1,000 pieces of can...

Black man from Moreno Valley who controlled Neo-Nazi group to dismantle it dies at 55

By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN A black activist who took control of one of the nation’s largest neo-Nazi groups — and vowed to dismantle it — has died amid a legal fight over who would lead the group. James Stern died Oct. 11 after getting hospice care for cancer, according to one of his attorneys, Bob Ross, and a friend, Arne Edward List. Stern, 55, died at home in Moreno Valley, California, List said. “James was a very unconventional crusader,” Ross said Monday, praising his client’s “quiet confidence.”...

How to Paint Like Willem De Kooning: Watch Visual Primers from the Museum of Modern Art

Before you learn how to paint like Dutch American Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning, you might ask, why should you paint like Willem De Kooning? Shouldn’t every artist have his or her own inimitable personal style? We might ask, why learn to play piano like Nina Simone or write prose like William Faulkner? If you stop at mere imitation, there may be no good reason to mimic the masters. But if you take their techniques and make them yours—steal, if you will, their best parts for yo...

The five best Bob Ross pep talks

The best thing about being sick as a kid was staying home from school and watching Bob Ross's The Joy of Painting.

A couple of examples: “Let your imagination run wild, let your heart be your guide … In the time you sit around worrying about ...

A Little Story for Earth Day

Now various folks call people like me who try to reduce their environmental impact on the earth "Tree Huggers". Most times I take the reference as a badge of honor. But sometimes, depending on the context, I'm not always thinking Bob Ross style happy thoughts about trees. I recently built myself up an electric bike and even more recently pledged that I was not going to charge it off the main power grid. With the help of my son Peter, I assembled a small bike shed in our back driveway a...

Bob Ross through Google's DeepDream

DeepDream is AI software developed by Google to identify things it finds in images. Most people know it for the way it turns photos and videos into hallucinatory kaleidoscopic nightmares, in which faces of creatures inexplicably appear in clothing, rocks, clouds, or anything with a pattern or texture. Alexander Reben made good use of DeepDream in an episode of Bob Ross's The Joy of Painting. My favorite part is where Bob is petting some little animal in his hand. It changes into a different ...
