Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
I know that art is subjective, and one person's Rembrandt is another person's refuse.
But thanks to the New York Supreme Court, we now have an answer on whether lap dances are fine art.
The court says they are NOT.
It seems there was an argument over whether lap dances could be called art, and don't let anyone fool you: it wasn't over the true meaning of art, it was all about money. Specifically, whether lap dances could be taxed. With the court's ruling, this means lap dances are taxable. The court went on to say it's because they don't promote culture in a community like ballet or other dancing does. (None of the ballets I've ever attended have involved anyone with a pole and a stage name that's something along the lines of "Chastity" or "Forbidden". I'm still waiting for someone to rock it old-school and use "Minerva".)
