Emma Florence Harrison
Not many details are known about Art Nouveau and Pre-Raphaelite artist
Harrison, who was also one of the
Glasgow Girls, but I think these are some of the
best children's book illustrations that I've ever seen. There
are more of her illustrations
From "Early Poems" By William Morris
An illustration to Christina Rossetti's poem 'A Birthday'
Joseph Stieler was a German portrait artist, who's realist painting and subjects
are quite fascinating. I was particularly
impressed with his paintings of women in "The Gallery of Beauties".

These are wonderfully composed photographs of Iranian women, who live in
a Islamic contraction forcing them to have one foot in the past and one foot in the present.

Norah Jones -
I saw an
article about Norah Jones on NYT and found this gem on YouTube. She's great!
Tegan And Sara
- Back In Your Head
When I was looking up Norah Jones on YouTube, I found the amazing
Tegan and Sara from Canada. Here are a few of their songs I
enjoyed on YouTube: I know I

The Count Basie
Orchestra - Corner Pocket
This music is simply sublime. I wish I could have seen his band in his
Kraftwerk - Radioactivity (Live)
I saw this
article on Metafilter, which reminded me about Kraftwerk, who I have
featured several times before. Radionactivity is a great of song
performed live. I'd love to see these guys live. They're one
of my favorite bands. They look a little like the Blue Man Group in
that picture below, don't they?
Brian Eno - Babys
This was kind of a weird experimental color video shot at MIT in 1976,
but the recording by Brian Eno is one of my all time favorites.
Brian Eno's First Album - Here Come The Warm Jets (1973)
Michael Powers -
Baby's Got a Train
This New York City blues man can really play his
Stratocaster reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana and Stevie
Ray Vaughn. His MySpace page is
here. Thanks Tom
W. for the link!
Michael Powers Live
Santana - Black Magic Woman (Live)
This 1970's hit still sounds fresh to me and not dated at all.
