RiaD is still recuperating from the Andromeda Strain, and doesn’t yet have the stamina to undertake the weighty responsibility of a full-fledged Evening Pony Party, so, since I’m a Trust Fund Guy
(trust that funds will come in eventually) and still have a lot of free time, I am once again filling-in for T.I.T.A.S.S.
We of the O.O.T.L.E. (Out of Touch Liberal Elite) that control the Left Wing, often look to the Arts to sooth our troubled souls. Sometimes by setting up
a Foundation or a Fellowship. Sometimes by starting a a museum, or prize, or school, named for us. Here we tend to focus on writing and computer graphics, so lets take some time to consider some others.
Currently however, funding is pretty tight, so instead of money, we offer an alternative form of support. Once the Democrats control The White House, we are certain that a new era of peace and prosperity will ensue. In the meantime, we encourage the everday working class to take some time out in between your three part-time jobs and delve into the world of the Arts so that you’ll have some skills, and maybe some projects finished, by the time we’re donating money again.
There are many resources availabe for such endeavors, but we choose You Tube, well, because embedding videos is easy, and it’s FREE.

But DO NOT recommend this. Instead , go to the Front Page for some inspiration.
The rest of the videos will be of reduced size, but remember that if you double-click they will open in a new window and you can begin your new career as a starving artist.
Learn an Art Tatum run from Dick Hyman. (Oh, grow up!) This is actually not that hard. The fingering he uses takes you up the keyboard.
Intro to Slide Guitar. KLB seems like a great guy.
DFH’s love these beaded bags
For the more practical
Train your pony. Maybe get a job at an O.O.T.L.E. Arabian Horse Farm
Or just make a sign
