Photoshops Of The Day: Mick

(Photoshop fun from Daisy)

So often in our culture, we put celebrities up on a pedestal. We idolize them. We forget that they are ordinary people like the rest of us. Take Mick Jagger, for example. Here he is on stage during a performance.

But Mick's just an everyday person with an everyday life just like the rest of us. For example, did you know that Mick really loves to have freshly squeezed orange juice with his breakfast? He even likes to pick his own fruit from the tree.

Mick also loves the smell of freshly washed laundry drying on a clothesline in the back yard. Yes, Mick does his own laundry. In fact, as you can see by the expression of joy on his face, hanging the clothes out to dry is one of his favorite activities.

Remember when Mick said he'd never be a beast of burden? He lied. This trash looks particularly ripe, but there's Mick, doing his part.

On a Saturday afternoon, you are likely to find Mick out in the driveway washing the family van. He'll be out there sudsing it up and scrubbing the bugs off the windshield just like any other ordinary person. Okay, well maybe most people would wear an old T-shirt and shorts instead of a green satin jacket, but hey, he's Mick Jagger. He's gotta look good no matter what he's doing.

Here's Mick, helping the kiddies cross the street like a good citizen.
In Mick's own words*, "Nothing is more important than getting a good education."

Finally, Mick shows his playful side, having fun, zooming about and pretending to be an airplane.

* A complete and utter fabrication.

Cause Of The Day: CFF

If you can, please help FOLOTD Stacie (she of Stacie's Madness) who is walking 800 or so miles this weekend to raise money for cystic fibrosis, and is very close to her goal. Every little bit helps. Do it for Johnny. Thanks. (link at bottom)


What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:

  • clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and
  • obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.

Farewell Music Videos Of The Day #2 & 3

No animals were harmed to create the hair in this video. They were shorn, but it grows back.

If that one was too over the top for you, here's a lo-fi version. I like this one much better.
