On this day in 1969, Johnny Cash debuted his own network show on CBS-TV.
Waking up in the middle of the night and realizing you still have time to sleep
"Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?"

Feather Child by Lucy Glenlendinning.
This art work is inspired by her fascination with a future society. The feathered children are questions, where the artist is asking us if we lived in a world where our genetics could be freely manipulated, will be able to resist altering our physical abilities?
The fragility of the feathers also represents the fate of Icarus in Greek mythology, where Icarus flew too close to the sun and burned to a crisp. How far can humanity progress before everything falls apart?
