Chasing light: Arctic landscapes by Zaria Forman

Artist Zaria Forman works with soft pastels on paper to recreate moving images of the disappearing icebergs in Greenland.

Her fine tuned technique of capturing these melting icecaps create a sense of mystery and awe of these disappearing beauties and remind us to consider the consequences of global climate change.

Weakness Wednesday: Arctic Monkeys “Mardy Bum”

Even when they were barely 20-years old, the Arctic Monkeys, or their lead writer Alex Turner were writing ready-for-radio songs like it was second nature. “Mardy Bum” perhaps was the most poppy, and simple upbeat guitar pop. Enjoy.

If you want to experience the Arctic without the cold we’d recommend checking out National Maritime Museum’s exhibit ‘High Arctic’. You’ll get black lights and let loose in a room where you’ll interact with a synthetic arctic accompanied by a narrative of the trip conducted by Matt Clark.

When this Arctic Monkeys debut came out, it was a tad exciting for the Brits. And then the American caught wind, and they got excited, and then Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not became a classic debut. And this was just 2005-06. Oh, how time rolls by fast. Enjoy the great “The View From the Afternoon” and the SNL classic (when they played it there), “A Certain Romance.”

It is said today that President Obama is going to suspend Arctic drilling for the rest of the year. The NY Times reports, “The decision essentially extends an informal moratorium that Mr. Obama had set shortly after the BP accident on April 20 that led to the spewing of millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The new restrictions would suspend new offshore drilling permits in the Gulf of Mexico and off the North Slope Alaska until the cause of the accident is determined and stricter safety and environmental safeguards are imposed.

One major oil company, Shell Oil, had been hoping to begin a controversial exploratory drilling project this summer in the Arctic Ocean, which the new restrictions would put on hold.”

Well, that means $5 a gallon by mid-summer. A hard pill to swallow, but maybe its the way it should be? This is the closest we can be to being European! If you can’t be somewhat socialized, might as well join them in petrol prices.
