Today's discussion points: art, music, and writing.

Art: Google got in trouble for showcasing Miro's work in their logo last week. Apparently they got in the same predicament when honoring Dali. Man, it's hard to deal with copyright these days.

More art: Did you know Dale Chihuly has an eyepatch? As a result, he has no depth perception any more, so others do the glassblowing. And he's dealing with bipolar disorder. I had no idea.

Classical music: Was it Bach's wife, rather than Bach himself, who wrote some of his best works?

Modern music: Do Southerners make better pop singers?

Writing: For any girl who's ever been twelve, your take on what happened then is requested. The "When I Was Twelve" project asks for your stories. (I don't know if there's an equivalent project for boys in the works.) I think I've repressed most of my memories as a 12-year-old, myself.
