I worked as a teaching assistant in CCAD’s Saturday Morning Art Class program the whole time I was in college. I returned to the program this fall to teach my very own class of sixth- and seventh-graders: Art and Technology.

In our first week of class, yesterday, I taught my students how to use Photoshop’s lasso tool and clipping masks to create this lovely piece.

I don’t think any of them knew who it is in these pictures.

Lambchop — “National Talk Like a Pirate Day” live at XX Merge.

Signal boost in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day. The perfect thing.

Then there was George Chuzzlewit, a gay bachelor cousin, who claimed to be young but had been younger, and was inclined to corpulency, and rather over-fed himself: to that extent, indeed, that his eyes were strained in their sockets, as if with constant surprise; and he had such an obvious disposition to pimples, that the bright spots on his cravat, the rich pattern on his waistcoat, and even his glittering trinkets, seemed to have broken out upon him, and not to have come into existence comfortably.
I’ve been listening to a free Librivox audiobook of Charles Dickens’ Martin Chuzzlewit at work. The quality of the narration and recording is better than I expected. Apparently, Martin Chuzzlewit isn’t one of Dickens’ most popular works, but even so I’ve really enjoyed the rich, wordy greatness of passages like the one above. Worth a listen!
