    Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.

    What is the value of a kind word?
    In January of 1986 I was flipping through the channels on TV and saw the closing credits for a PBS show called "Funny Business," a show about cartooning. I had always wanted to be a cartoonist but never knew how to go about it. I wrote to the host of the show, cartoonist Jack Cassady, and asked his advice on entering the profession.
    A few weeks later I got an encouraging handwritten letter from Jack, answering all of my specific questions about materials and process. He

    went on to warn me about the likelihood of being rejected at first, advising me not to get discouraged if that happened. He said the cartoon samples I sent him were good and worthy of publication.
    I got very excited, finally understanding how the whole process worked. I submitted my best cartoons to Playboy and New Yorker. The magazines quickly rejected me with cold little photocopied form letter. Discouraged, I put my art supplies in the closet and more...

    Nice Art

    An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest
    in his paintings on display at that time.

    "I have good news and bad news," the owner replied. "The good
    news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and
    wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When
    I told him it would, he bought all 15 of your paintings."

    "That's wonderful," the artist exclaimed. "What's the bad

    "The guy was your doctor."

    Walpole had lived in his loft for six months, and by now it was filled with the
    paintings he had created. He worked day and night, stopping only occasionally for something to eat. He thought little about food and less about sleep. But what he thought about least of all was his rent.
    As a result, his landlord now stood before him, demanding the three months' rent
    Walpole owed on the loft.“Give me a couple of weeks,” Walpole pleaded. “I know I'm on the verge of making
    some sales.”“Absolutely not,” the landlord said. “You gave me that story last month. You won't get
    another day's credit from me.”“Look,” Walpole said, “think of it as an investment. Someday this loft will be famous, and you'll be able to charge a fortune for it. In a few years, people will come into this disgusting loft and whisper, ‘Walpole used to paint here.’”“Pay your rent now,” the landlord said, “or they'll be able to say it tomorrow morning.”

    Three Black Men

    At the National Art Gallery in Dublin, a husband and wife were staring at a portrait that had them completely confused.

    The painting depicted three black men totally naked sitting on a park bench. Two of the figures had black willies, but the one in the middle had a pink willie.

    The curator of the gallery realized that they were having trouble interpreting the painting and offered his assessment.

    He went on for over half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual emasculation of black men in a predominately white, patriarchal society.' In fact,' he pointed out,' some serious critics believe that the pink willie also reflects the cultural and sociological oppression experienced by gay men in contemporary society.'

    After the curator left, an Irishman, approached the couple and said,' Would you like to know what the painting is really about?'

    'Now why would you claim to be more of an expert than the curator of the gallery?' asked more...
