Saturday morning cartoon music: Tom and Jerry music performed by the John Wilson Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall

Not a cartoon in itself, but music from the old Tom and Jerry cartoons, performed by a full orchestra. It’s like Saturday morning cartoons all grown up and cultured.

Brice Bischoff and His Revelry with Light and Colors

Early this year, we zoomed in on the works of Los Angeles-based photographer Brice Bischoff, absolutely positive that film-loving people and long exposure fans would love the way he brought color to a bare and dull-looking location. We got in touch with Brice to learn more about him and his work, so if you’re also curious, let’s revisit some of his colorful long exposures, take a peek at some of his new works, and find out more about his inspirations, motivations, and plans as an artist.

Why do advertisers persist in selling the image of the beautiful, shapely woman executive who keeps the same perfectly made-up face and styled hair, even after a hard day of earning a six-figure salary, dining in expensive restaurants, having a brisk game of tennis at the club, and a late night of discotheque hopping? It’s no surprise that real women are tempted to wonder what they’re doing wrong.

Opposite directions, synchronized feet

I recently watched a TedTalk about the dangers of a wandering mind; how a mind that strays from the present tends to lead to unhappiness. The romantic idea of the daydreamer; well, they’re overrated. A daydreamer that manages to stay content and on two solid feet is a rarity.

It took me a while to grasp this idea, to fully understand what was being said. However, after recently having a few days alone with only my thoughts to keep me company, I realized that my mind did wander to possibilities that my life may hold, future and past. And more often than not, these thoughts led me to situations that I wished I had handled differently, or things or people or opportunities that were lost that I wanted back, or dreams that I want to pursue but cannot at the moment embark toward them. Not that I was actively longing for them, but my wandering mind brought back those feelings, and it took active thinking and self-reassurance that my current state is an equally rewarding one.

I suppose this has led me to an even firmer appreciation to living utterly in the present. Focus on what is happening right in this moment; on things that are within arms reach. Everything else can wait until I get a little closer, close enough to determine whether it is a permanent feature or not. Once I am able to make out the distinct features, then and only then is it perhaps time to focus attention on it. I have exhaled too many heavy sighs on hopes that I have wanted to reach and have simply not been able to attain them due to not spending enough time examining - and perhaps appreciating - the size and shape of my current life.
