He is now resting. He is now at peace. Our nation hast lost its greatest son. Our people have lost its father.

Nelson Mandela has died, South African President Jacob Zuma announces. (via frantzfandom)

The world has lost a real man, someone positive and worth listening to. It’s a sad thing.

This stinks, but these other counties don’t have the financial issues that the US has.  I wonder how to get the debt crisis under control and get to a livable minimum wage….

Olympic Protest of the Day: In protest of the strict branding regulations for the upcoming London Olympics, six street artists known collectively as Brandalism have reclaimed more than 30 existing billboards around the U.K., postering over the existing content with their own ad busts:

Installed over five days in one continuous road trip that has covered the length of the country, the Brandalism crew have hit 33 spots in 5 cities. Edited and developed on the fly, this project sees the culmination of 8 months work and we will be adding more content to the site after we get some serious sleep, updates will follow daily…
Inspired by a little known writer Sean Tejaratchi, the infamous British street artist Banksy plagiarized and popularized the Brandalism term in his latest book — Wall & Piece. It is from here that we are picking up where they both left off with the Brandalism project by putting words into action with the world’s first international, collaborative subvertising project.

Help

Ok tumblrs,

I have been asked to teach a very intense 2 week photo class at the local university. (yikes)

I would be expected to show these students how to use their 35mm camera and introduce them to the darkroom experience.  These students will earn a grade and are expected to retain information in 2 weeks that I learned over the course of 8 weeks.   If you had a great project/trick/tip from your photo 1 teacher/class please share it!

I need all the help I can get with this class.  I want the students to learn and retain the knowledge more than just work on earning a grade.  I hope that this is attainable in 2 weeks.  Any ideas would be appreciated, thank you!!
