Creative Play : #Theme Thursday 5/7/09

Last Friday, I posted some links for creative play. I said it was more fun than Follow Friday, a Twitter invention, in which folks recommend following other people’s Twitter posts.

Truly bizare, but absolutely real: aloe flower spike, about 12-ft. high

Then I had this idea–suppose all those people who love art, or reading, or music (on any other thing you love–fishing, gardening, folding paper airplanes),  searched and found some great links on those topics?

Once you’ve found some great sites,  post them on your blog.  Suppose we all did this on Thursday and call it #Theme Thursday?   If you have a Twitter account, you can post a link to your site there. (The hash mark is an indicator for Twitter so it will get indexed and we can all find everyone else’s posts.)

If you don’t know, like, or care about Twitter,  post a link to your site in the comments below. You can do more than three cool links on your blog, but make it at least three.

Here are mine, in no particular order.

Over at the creativity incubator, we were talking about music and the creative process. Here’s a link to create your own music using You Tube clips. Best thing: you don’t need any musical talent.

Some very imaginative graffiti, some of it art, some of it inviting art.

Of course you are unique, but how many people in the world have your name? Find out.

Virginia Siegel is an artist, but until May 7 she is auctioning off art for cancer research. She does collage work, and the prices vary widely. Interesting concept, art for health. Her blog discusses collage mania in detail.

Katie Sokoler imagines what shadows would do if they had a lie of their own. And over on The Seeded Earth, there is a great graffiti-on-graffiti balloon man. Look closely!
