As we all know by now, Friday is ART DAY at myninjaplease. And if you didn’t know, well we told you last week, what’s wrong with you?!?

The above work is a Wassily Kandinsky piece, which I’m sure you’re familiar with. But, if not, there’s also a nice article right here published by NY’s MoMA. Scroll down to read the rest of the awesome art posts. Enjoy!

Bound For Glory: America in Color

Bound For Glory is an exhibition by the Library of Congress.From website:
"Bound for Glory: America in Color is the first major exhibition of the little known color images taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information. These vivid scenes and portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations, the nation’s subsequent economic recovery and industrial growth, and the country’s great mobilization for World War II."
It is simply unbelievable. The above photo, by Marion Post Wolcott, was taken in Louisiana in August of 1940.
Check it out.

Project Precita

From The Creators:

Years lived in: After 2 unpleasant years of top-to-bottom renovation, wea€™ve been living in it for 18 months.

Inspiration: The open layouts of Frank Lloyd Wright, the broken ruins of the former Huntera€™s Point Naval Shipyard, the converted Army barracks at the Headlands Center for the Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge.

Our style: Contemporary modernism meets the military-industrial complex.

My Ninja, Please! 8/25/06: Jenga! Jenga! Jenga! Aw…

An aspiring Guiness world record holder sees his leaning tower of jenga triumphantly destroyed with a mic chord.AA At least he went out like in the commercials- it’s a video that almost brings a tear to me eye.
