Looking in the mirror
Wondering who’s the fairest-
Because I’m feeling like a sinner
Thinking if I can reach-
I can grasp, I can get her
Reminiscing on the past
Hung myself, I’m a killer
Kill her, too drunk
straddled in passenger seats to feel her
Was holding on to love
But out the pocket think I lost it
Is it too late to fix this?
I’m feeling like we forced it.
Hansel and Gretel flow
No relation, but we lost bitch
Hmm…what are we going to do?
Been feeling like an actor the moment I found you
I need a name change since you’re getting it tattooed
Where the next dude’ll be thinking of me when he taps you.
No more preaching to the choir
Telling me that you love me-
Aren’t you feeling like a liar?
The way you entered here before-
Turn around and exit baby,
That will be the door. Bitch.
I said, that will be the door. Bitch.
I hope it hits you on the floor. Bitch.
…the truth is, less is more than more may seem
"Southern trees bear strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop” - Billie Holiday x Strange Fruit
3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time. This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time. Think: a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand or contract.
[ HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY ]
The elevator doors open to the rooftop lounge of a Manhattan sky rise. A beautiful young lady greets and escorts me along a vast platform of low level seating graced by tall mirrored columns. The group of ladies I am here to meet are seated with poise, elegantly framed by the reserved booth…
