Today we dance about architecture. Or something like that, since it's Monday.

Architecture: Plans are underway for a building in Dubai that's to be one kilometer tall. Yes. One kilometer. Hopefully they're also looking into supersonic-speed elevators.

Crafts: Art festivals (and the artists participating in them) are yet another victim of the tanking economy.

Music: are there groups that appeal to only men? Or only women? And what does Sparks have to do with any of this? (I am posting this mainly for Cassandra, who gets livid at these sorts of articles.)

Photography: the Flickr Commons has its first Canadian participant with photos from the Mus´┐Że McCord Museum.

Sculpture-like art: The delicate and mind-boggling art of papercutting has its own weblog.

Spooky art bits: The new art gallery Centquatre just opened in Paris, in a building which used to be a massive and elegant funeral parlor. How cool! Also, for the season: Tim Burton's Vincent is on YouTube, and the related videos of Poe's Raven make for lovely watching, too.

Blogger Cassandra: HULK SMASH PART 2

So, the writer of the music article might as well have been asking, "Why can't a woman be more like a man?"

Here goes: Because if she were (if she did like manly music) she would be rejected by men as well as other women. She is smart enough to know that men really do not wish her to be more like them, and women will spurn her if she is too masculine.

Never underestimate the power of social forces!!!!

Social Darwinism with its biological atavism is so 1930s.

P.S. I should never bring my laptop into class with me. I'm going to fail! (teehee) I think.
