Muy Arte Y Pico

Holy cow three of you have chosen to honor this humble blog with the fabulous Arte Y Pico Award! You guys are way too kind and way too cool! So thanks to the ultra talented writer guy John, the most awesome Mob (thank you for introducing me to Edwidge Fenech) and the groovy retro-wonder man Gilligan!


Now I get to hand out some Arte Y Picos!

1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.

2. Each award should have the name of the author with a link to their blog.

3. Award winners have to post the award with the name and link to the blog of the person who gave them the award (done at the end of Paragraph 1).

4. Please include a link to the “Arte Y Pico” blog so that everyone will know where the award came from.

5. Show these rules.

The rules say I should pick 5 blogs that I consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community but since I so generously received 3 of these I guess I get to hand out 15! Hooray I feel like santa!

1. Kitschy Kitschy Coo is a fun blog devoted to retro collectibles/ culture and they have a real knack for fiding some splendidly cool things to talk about!

2. Cap'n Scurvy van artist extraordinaire (when he isn't painting boats)! Check out the very cool drawings he posts on his blog as well as all the other neato stuff!

3.The Cushy Blog has something unusual but very cool to offer, super neat sound recordings from his neighborhood and beyond. I never made it on time for his name that sound compititions but they were quite cool!

4. Sequoia Sempervirens runs a terrific blog and has a knack for finding and sharing the best videos on the web!

5.Distributorcap For writing about politics (and other things too!) in a really eloquent, reasonable and engulfing way. My favorite political blog hands down.

6. Rik Rawling is a wonderful artist and a fellow Russ Meyer fan which makes him extra cool in my book!

7. Ahenobarbus is a masterful photoshopper! You should check out his very wonderful pin-up art!

8. You'll always find some fun, fabulous and terrifically kitchy photographs on planet Fabulon!

9. Dash MacBastard has two blogs; the must read Paper and Plastic Please devoted mainly to action figures and Are You Man Enough... mainly devoted to comics culture but also where he posts he very awesome art. Great drawings man!

10. Captain Incredible is the daring and brave superhero who somehow manages to find time in-between saving kitties from trees and bouts of sleepwalking, to blog! Lots of fun to read!

11. Though we may disagree about the attractiveness of Kim Kardashian (boo, Ben, boo)Ben he is a talented writer who should definitely have one of these Arte Y Picos to decorate his mantelpiece!

12. Chris over at Exquisitely Bored in Nacogdoches is one heck of a photographer and if you haven't seen his work you should really check it out!

13. Percy Trout is a fab artist that liters his blog with fun videos, fantastic pin-ups and his wonderful art!

14. Fletch over at Blog Cabins runs a very nice movie blog, great reviews, fun polls...just a fun read.

15.Atomic Romance is a really well put together comics culture blog with the coolest banner ever! It's the must read for anyone who loves comics.

Thanks, Becca! I heart your blog, too.

Arkonbey said...

Wow. You read all of those? How do you find time to draw?

Ben Varkentine said...

Backatcha.

Chris said...

You cheated! I could have easily listed more blogs (including No Smoking in the Skull Cave) if I hadn't been "restricted" to just five!! Oh well...Rules are made to be broken, I guess.

Thanks for including me, becca.

Becca said...

Tim-
Awww thanks! And you are welcome!

Arkonbey-
I don't sleep...

Ben-
Backatcha-backatcha :)

Chris-
I did 15 cause I got three seperate Arte Y Picos and I figured it was a good excuse to give some shout outs for some super blogs like yours!

Fletch said...

Thanks mucho, Becca! I don't understand a word on the Arte y Pico site, but the award sure looks nice!

I'm honored.

Swinebread said...

Very nice of you to list my blog with so many other great selections. Thank you!

Captain Incredible said...

Becca - once again, thank you!

Like Arkonbey, I'm amazed you have time to read so many blogs, and would be concerned you might be approaching a psychotic episode from lack of sleep...

But hopefully not - the hangover isn't fun.

Have a good weekend and be good :)

Bed In Summer

(1)

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light. 。

In summer quite the other way,

I have to go to bed by day.

(2)

I have to go to bed and see

The birds still hopping on the tree,

Or hear the grown-up people's feet
Still going past me in the street. 。

(3)

And does it not seem hard to you,

When all the sky is clear and blue,

And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

However, if you don`t follow the chantix precautionary measures while taking the medicine, it is capable of causing tremendous harm to your health.
