Boob toob

I always like to take “screen shots,” especially of comedic disasters that are maverick in proportion like this one:


I haven’t done squat with stickers all month, other than compile them in notebooks (which are now being stored in my car), hoping to go through them soon for further insight.  Last weekend, I added a copyright statement to all of the items in the collection, as well as to the items in the Gallery’s Permanent Collection.  It’s a copyright statement only to say I/we don’t necessarily own copyright on any of the items in the collection(s), which seems to be what everyone else is doing, too.  Sticker metadata is moving slowly like mud, and my sticker ninjas seem to be busy with other things, waugh.  I was hoping to get into NYC last weekend to look for election-related booty, but plans changed.  I think my next trip will be post-election, unfortunately.

Interestingly enough, however, the sticker collection can now be “harvested” through the Library’s new Encore discovery tool (click on “Encore” at the top).  I especially like the fact that one can tag items in Encore, something CONTENTdm can’t do yet.

A Field Day: More from the NY Times

I don’t have time for stickers these days.  The election is more important (ack, this from the Stickerkitty?).  Maureen Dowd’s article online tonight was fantastic.  More lipstick smackin’ gumminess from Palin:

“With the impacts of climate change, what we can do about that, as governor, I was the first governor to form a climate change subcabinet to start dealing with the impacts.” That was, miraculously, richer with content than an answer she gave Katie Couric: “You know, there are man’s activities that can be contributed to the issues that we’re dealing with now, with these impacts.”

Sarah Palin Quote

This was in the NY Times today online regarding Sarah Palin’s interview with Katie Couric on CBS last week.  That heel-stompin’, lipstick totin’ girl can sure go on!  Ouch!  I’ll have to tally up the number of words in that first sentence.

“After that recent interview that wasn’t so successful because as I admitted on Fox TV the other day, I was annoyed and I was impatient with some of the questions, and I need to learn to I guess hide to some of that annoyance, some of the annoyance with some of the questions I received was because I am so apparently outside the Washington elite and the media elite, that sometimes I don’t understand why they are asking what they are asking when Americans want to talk about energy independence, they want to talk about how they are gonna be able to send their kids to college, to hear our solutions to challenges to health care, not necessarily, ‘What publication did you read this morning?’ OK, so I was annoyed and I have to apologize for that.”
