local links for this Tuesday that feels like a Monday

Hello all. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. There’s a lot of talk going on about what exactly happened – or didn’t happen – at this year’s Golden Globes. I was mostly bored during the telecast and annoyed by some of the winners (yes I’m looking at you James Cameron, speaking N’avi or whatever during your acceptance speech . . . can we say egotistical much). In cased you missed the broadcast there’s a great recap of the show over at celebrity gossip, academic style.

Putting the telecast behind us, and in a sense cleansing my palate, I’d like to share some girl-related links for those of you in the Austin area.

“Fishes Woe, number 1″ by Angela Bacon-Kidwell, one of the photos exhibited in Childhood: An International Photo Exhibition Juried By Jamie Lee Curtis (image courtesy of angelabaconkidwell.com)

The Julia C. Butridge Gallery is currently hosting an exhibit all about youth. “Childhood: An International Exhibit” is part of a group exhibition presented by the Texas Photographic Society. Photographers (professional and amatuer) from around the world were invited to submit color and black&white photos depicting children, childhood, and youth in general. Jamie Lee Curtis, the actress and children’s book author, acted as juror and selected the material on display. The exhibit is open until January 28th. Please see this site for details on the gallery’s hours of operation. I’m going to try my best to make it to this exhibit and report back here.

This last link can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone! Here’s a new video from the local band Care Bears on Fire – a group that assembled during Girls Rock Camp here in Austin. Here’s the band singing “Barbie Eat a Sandwich” and looking all sorts of cool in this animated music video directed by Daisy Edwards. Enjoy . . . and maybe go eat a sandwich, before you die!
