Today we are all about visual art.

The creating: you can make your own Jackson Pollock work of art by moving your mouse around wildly (click the mouse to change color, press the space bar to erase the screen).

You can also use LEDs to make light doodles - they show you how to make your own on this site, which also has a gallery of creations.

The altering: Once again, b3ta has a great gallery of photoshopped work - this time, it's music album covers before the cropping took place. I love the Simon & Garfunkel one.

On March 1st, Cincinnati will run its version of the Iditarod, but with shopping carts and scavenger hunting. Er, well, yes.

The disappearing: paintings worth millions of dollars are stolen in Zurich. I keep trying to imagine what it would be like to be part of an art thief gang. Are they cultured? Are they high-tech?

Also, it's the end of an era: Polaroid is discontinuing its instant film. Nooooo!

Or as I affectionately refer to him "Hack"-son Pollock.

Wakka wakka

My Pollock art reminded me of a colon resting in a flowerbed. Hmmmm....I wonder what that ink blot test means?

Those album covers were pretty funny.

And the rest of you: Leave Jackson Pollock alone!! He's a human being!!
