Good Art is Hard to Find.

Platano Pride by Miguel Luciano

Isn't this an amazing photograph?


There is a new show up at the BK Museum and the artist
Miguel Luciano,
is featured in it.

Stop by.
Show love,
its the Brooklyn Way.

Here at Model Minority, we are all about you making
your cake.

I found this GREAT little tool that shows you how to
calculate your salary AND it breaks down
what you estimated pay will be after taxes.

Imagine my delight when I saw that you could plug in your
job title and have your Numbers crunch.

This sh*t is so necessary when you are negotiating

for cake w/ your employer.

The Yeye & Andre Mixtape is HERE.


I am ready for new Outkast.

They needs to stop playin'.

MZ. Here is the book list.


But its weird, in that the font is small.

The books that I circled are:

The Art of Possibility- About living a life that is open to good sh*t happening.
Talks a lot about teaching styles and how when you expect MORE from
young people they tend to perform better AND give more.
Get Paid What You Are Worth- Title sums it up.
The Hidden Cost of Being Black- Dope Title. Never read it tho'.
Stolen Harvest- One of the first books on local food movement, global warming
tip.

Some other sh*t that I have noticed recently
Free Food for Millionaires- Book title is sick.
Guaranteed Success-
Master P's handbook on being dedicated
entrepreneurial and successful.

Junot Diaz has a new one out as does Edwidge Dandicat. They both,
I presume, are mind blowing.

This isn't the list I "promised" however technically, I kept my word.

LOL.

Anyone else reading anything good?

What if there was a relationship calculator?


You put in your info, and the machine spits out
the
estimated length of your relationship,
the sources of
your potential fights, the estimated emotional/financial
damage
done after the fact. Whether happily ever "n*gga clean them dishes"
after is an option?

I bet you the Freakanomics dudes could flip it.

I can comment again now. Thanks for the book suggestions. www.salary.com is a good place to get that information from as well.

And if they had that for relationships....People still wouldn't listen. It'd be like telling a little kid not to touch the hot stove.

Just have the cold rag ready

I said that I would stop reading books that take place during slavery (they make me too angry and I can't go to work like that), but I am currently reading Red River by Lalita Tademy. It's fiction based on her ancestor's real lives and it is pretty good.
