I know I complain a lot about how 99% of the world is being controlled by the tiny 1% and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. And I complain only because it’s true and since I am in a position to use my voice, I exercise that right as often as possible (and I encourage you to do the same).
What I want to say though is that in spite of it all, I am very grateful every day for the blessings in my life. All you can ask for in life is for happiness and no matter how bad we think we have it, it could always be a lot worse, so please take a moment every day and be grateful for what you have, no matter how small you think it is.
Have a happy day everyone!

Happy birthday to artist Elbow Toe! Before According2g.com existed, I remember I’d be walking down the streets of New York and out of the corner of my eye, I’d see a phrase written on a wall and I wasn’t sure what was going on. One phrase that sticks out in my mind was “It’s a sad day for somedays.” The words always made me smile and after doing investigative research, I came to discover those words were written by Elbow Toe. In addition to the work he puts on the streets, Elbow Toe is an incredibly talented fine artist (as you can see from the photo above). Happy birthday, ET!

The Perry Rubenstein Gallery in New York has a great exhibit called “Shred,” and I recommend you check it out. The exhibit features work by lots of my favorite artists including Faile, Swoon, Elbow Toe, Shepard Fairey, Dash Snow and Leo Fitzpatrick, just to name a few. As the title of this exhibit suggests, the artists have shredded the commonly perceived notions of the narratives of art. The results are fantastic and as you will see in this exhibit, these artists have found beauty in things that are otherwise very ugly. Shred runs through August 27, 2010 and the Perry Rubenstein Gallery is located at 527 West 23rd Street in New York.
See more greatness after the jump.
