Linda McCartney. Photographer. Singer. Activist. American. 1941 – 1998.

Linda married Paul McCartney in 1969, and the two had three children: Mary Anna, (fashion designer/activist) Stella, and James. Linda was a member of Paul's band, Wings, and she also wrote/recorded music independently (Seaside woman- Suzy and The Red Stripes). Linda was house photographer at the Fillmore East concern hall and shot numerous musicians including the Stones, Doors, Frank Zappa, Kinks, the Who, the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the Beatles etc. During her days as a professional photographer, she published Linda McCartney's Sixties: Portrait of an Era. As a vegetarian and animal rights activist, Linda wrote several cookbooks, and also created the Linda McCartney Foods company, selling ready made veggie food. Linda famously said "if slaughterhouses had glass walls the whole world would be vegetarian". Sadly, Linda passed away at age 56 from breast cancer. She was a beautiful human being and a personal inspiration.

I heart Javier Bardem.

2010 was a great year personally, but not so positive for the planet... its hard to realize that yet another year has passed and we're still moving along on the path of self-destruction... Lets clean up our acts and make some real changes in 2011... try a little harder to protect and respect the earth... give back when we can to those less fortunate... live simply so others can simply live.

Anthony Bourdain. No Reservations Cleveland. An Epic Episode.

This episode is particularly radical because it features Harvey Pekar, the famous comic book writer (American Splendor), who takes Tony on a tour of the worlds biggest book store. Later on, the awesome FREE STAMP by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen is introduced (which I blogged about HERE). Finally, Tony takes a tour of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum with Marky Ramone, and the two dine at Iron Chef Michael Symon's restaurant Lola. The show integrates graphic illustration animation, similar to the style used in Harvey's comics... Cleveland rocks!
