If you're like me, you're reeling from today's loss to Ghana. But life has to go on so put down the pills and alcohol and read your evening Sift.
A- Artlurker's online silent auction this week has been rather slow.
Owing to a surprising and quite frankly disappointing last few days of the Artlurker Online Silent Auction we feel it pertinent to remind readers that the function of these auctions is to raise funds to ensure the longevity of the website. While perhaps not the most innovative or exciting approach to fund raising, the cause is worthy and the need very real. Real enough that we feel justified in sacrificing something that has stood faithfully by us since the very beginning just so that we might go on.B- Figure the odds, over at Restaurant Gal.
C- Justice Building Blog didn't waste any time in posting his thoughts about the United States losing to Ghana in the World Cup today.
The Yanks went as far as they deserved to. This was not Hockey in Lake Placid in 1980. There would be no "do you believe in miracles?" moments.D- Swampstyle introduces a new blog for Swampspace which, not so coincidentally, celebrates its 1-year anniversary today.
Football- what we here call soccer- is not our game. It is a game that belongs to almost all other countries, but not ours. We wouldn't expect Ghana to compete and win the Stanley Cup. We wouldn't expect Brazil to field a basketball team to compete with the LA Lakers. We don't expect Germany to challenge the NY Yankees at the world series. And there would be serious risk of death if Japan or China put a team in the NFL.
So it is that we mark one year to the day when swampspace gallery opened its doors. The place was conceived at a time of certainty when all that prime swamp-estate needed was a name and willing appreciators. Google has graciously and automotronically stepped up to cement this occasion with their support of a new blog devoted to swampspace, the venue, its events, ambitions and accreditation.E- Play the latest round of Latino or Americano at Sweet Home Hialeah.
