Make use of the things around you.
This light rain
Outside the window, for one.
This cigarette between my fingers,
These feet on the couch.
The faint sound of rock-and-roll,
The red Ferrari in my head.
The woman bumping
Drunkenly around in the kitchen …
Put it all in,
—Raymond Carver, from “Sunday Night,” in All of Us: The Collected Poems (Alfred A. Knopf, 1998)

Quentin Tarantino gives zero fucks. Gettin’ real sick of your shit JAAAANNN!
Fine art in Damascus… Digital artist Tammam Azzam created this work, superimposing Gustav Klimt’s famous painting “The Kiss” over a bullet-riddled building façade in Damascus. (This is not an actual mural there.)
According to the artist:
I want to discuss how the whole world could be interested in art and on the other hand two hundred people are killed every day in Syria. Goya created a work to immortalize [the] killing of hundreds of innocent Spanish citizens on May 3, 1808. How many May 3rds do we have in Syria today?
The other two images are similar works of Azzam’s… using Matisse’s “La Danse” and Gauguin’s “Tahitian Women on the Beach” on top of similar scenes from Syria.
