Sir Ken Robinson spoke at my 2012 college graduation. What’s interesting about this quote is that creativity & literacy (and even writing) can - and should - often be combined.

Hey I want to give away some sweatshirts because giving things away makes me happy. Just repost this image and @dallasclayton or #dallasclayton and tell me something that makes you happy. I’ll pick a winners by next weekend. Fun!

It all started with an old typewriter and some tired expressions. “I began playing with the clichés we hear all the time,” São Paulo visual artist Verena Smit (@verenasmit), says. “I’ll cross out a letter or a word, but make it so it can still be read. While there’s a part that rejects the cliché, there’s also a part that would like to somehow embrace it.”
Happy Day of Making! Today the White House is hosting it’s Maker Faire - will we see you at @cincymuseum for Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire September 13-14? #NationOfMakers
About 2 weeks ago I received this email:
“Dear Mr. Mac Lethal
My name is Mrs. Francine, I’m a 53 year old high-school music teacher, and I love your YouTube videos. The problem is, I can’t play them for my students because they contain too many bad words. Would you consider making a fast rap video for my students, to inspire them to be great? With no bad words?
p.s. Do you like Mozart?”
This video is my response!
