Arthreat offers an insightful analysis on the financial crisis facing Halifax’s NSCAD and why this latest funding problem is so much more than a lack of money, but rather indicative of a greater devaluing of a liberal arts education, with such stellar quotes as this: “In criticizing the hype over the creative economy, one risks ‘killing the goose that laid the golden egg.’ In an age where all values need to speak the language of money, this has been one of the only ways arts organizations have been able to get funding for their projects. In the campaigns to save NSCAD, as well as in the strategic vision of the last several university presidents, highlighting the school’s contribution to and catalyzing effect on the creative economy has been absolutely central. […]But the trouble is that in framing the value of the fine arts, and of fine art schools in the language of the creative economy, we risk forgetting what makes them really valuable.”
Lovely stop-motion animated video from Toronto’s Type Books bookstore of the store’s books magically shuffling positions over the course of one night. The video is so popular/charming it’s been viewed a million and a half times already and garnered the store 400-plus followers over the last few days.
Some friendly writerly advice from the Burgendy GIrls blog: wake up every morning and write three pages, go, right now!
Oh, and a popular one-page website/ apology to the world for Stephen Harper, complete with countdown until the next election.

Thanks for your post. I would like to say that the first thing you will need to complete is to see if you really need repairing credit. To do that you have got to get your hands on a replica of your credit report. That should never be difficult, since government makes it necessary that you are allowed to be issued one free copy of your real credit report annually. You just have to check with the right people. You can either look into the website for the Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the major credit agencies right away.
