A velvet painting is a type of painting distinguished by the use of velvet as the support, in place of canvas, paper, or similar materials. The velvet provides an dark background against which colors stand out brightly. Velvet painting is an ancient technique, took on a new popularity in the United States in the late 20th century. Black velvet paintings originated in the homeland of the fabric; these original paintings were religious and portrayed the icons of the Caucasus region which were painted by Russian Orthodox priests. Marco Polo and others introduced black velvet paintings to Western Europe, some of these early works still hang in the Vatican Museums; the paintings are sold in rural America, have kitsch themes. They depict images of Elvis Presley, Dale Earnhardt, John Wayne, Native Americans, dogs playing poker and cowboys, the colors are bright and vivid to contrast the dark velvet, they can include more exotic or avant-garde themes. Ciudad Juárez, Mexico was a center of velvet painting in the 1970s.
A displaced Georgia farmboy, Doyle Harden, was the pioneer who created an enormous factory, where velvets were turned out by the thousands by artists sitting in studios. One artist would paint one piece of the picture slide the velvet along to the next artist, who would add something else. Velvet paintings mass-produced by hand in this manner fueled the boom in velvet paintings in the 1970s in the United States. Edgar Leeteg has been called "the father of American black velvet kitsch". In Portland, Oregon, a museum devoted to velvet paintings, the Velveteria, operated from late 2005 to January 2010, it reopened in December 2013 in the Chinatown neighborhood of Calif..

Dry Cell (band)
Dry Cell was an American rock band formed in 1998 in California, known in earlier stages as Impúr. They are best known for their song “Body Crumbles”, featured in numerous third party media, such as the Queen of the Damned soundtrack and Madden NFL 2003. They're known for the song "Slip Away", featured in Freekstyle; the band released one studio album, Disconnected, in 2002. Guitarist Danny Hartwell and drummer Brandon Brown met in 1998 at a Ratt Show on the Sunset Strip; the pair added vocalist Judd Gruenbaum and began playing under the name Beyond Control. Beyond Control soon earned the attention of Warner Brothers A&R executive Jeff Blue, responsible for discovering Linkin Park. Blue signed the band to a development deal, found a new lead singer in Jeff Gutt from Detroit and renamed the group Impúr. Blue described the band. No DJing, no rapping melodic and the kids are just phenomenal musicians". While known as Impúr the song Body Crumbles was featured on Rob Zombie's sampler disc Calling All Maniacs which circulated with his 2001 release titled The Sinister Urge.
After being signed to Warner Bros. Records, the band went to work recording their debut album titled Disconnected; the 12-track album was due to be released on July 16, 2002. It was pushed back to August 27, 2002. In the end, one of the band members' father got into a heated argument with Blue regarding the size of the band's promotion budget, the result of months of behind-the-scenes disagreement. Within 48 hours the father took his complaints to Warner, two days they released Dry Cell from their contract; the only place Disconnected was sold at was during the Locobazooka Festival in 2002. These were the final Warner pressed copies complete with artwork. However, advanced copies of the album which come in a paper sleeve cover and contain different artwork, can be found more regularly. However, one song from the album, "Body Crumbles", could be found in other places, such as; that same year, the band's cover version of the Stone Temple Pilots song "Heaven & Hot Rods" was used on the NASCAR on Fox and the Crank It Up soundtrack, "Slip Away" appeared in the EA Sports BIG franchise video game Freekstyle and the song "So Long Ago" is on the soundtrack for Warren Miller's Storm.
The band always stated there was no chance of releasing the album if they were to sign a new record deal. In 2008, it was announced that the band would be releasing Disconnected sometime after September of the same year, it was released in 2009 on iTunes. In October 2002, Dry Cell was featured in an article in The New York Times regarding their brief stint with Warner Bros. In March 2003, it was reported. However, nothing became of this contract. In early 2004, Dave Wasierski was named as the band's new vocalist. At the time, it was reported. In 2005 vocalist Jeff Gutt re-joined the band, they recorded four new demo tracks; the two songs released to the public were titled "New Revolution" and "The Lie". In late 2005, Danny Hartwell left the band; the group subsequently disbanded. After their split, two other tracks titled "Into Oblivion" and "Find a Way" were made available for download via their MySpace page. In 2007, the band stated that: Dry Cell back by popular demand! Contacted by legendary A&R producer to reunite in late 2007 the band is working together on four new demos for Jeff Blue, is gearing up for their release of their Disconnected record.
Dry Cell will be starting to write music for their next record on July 13. New record to be released In early summer of'09. Disconnected record is to be released after September of this year the moment we get confirmation of the date we will post it here. Get the word out- log on and chat with band members! In February 2008, bassist Judd Gruenbaum noted on the band's MySpace that they had gotten back together for guitarist Danny Hartwell's birthday party at The Roxy on Sunset strip, they were recording new music according to Gruenbaum. Sometime afterwards, Dry Cell updated their MySpace page stating they were halfway finished with recording a brand new album according, to Danny Hartwell in this message, "About half of it is done the rest is coming soon so its all good there should be some new posts of it up online in the near future keep it real..." On December 15, 2009, Dry Cell announced through a comment left on their MySpace, that they released two full-length records on iTunes, saying that one was of old songs, one was of new songs.
But the songs were not found on iTunes for several days. A few days the Disconnected album appeared on iTunes, with alternate cover art. In January 2010, the second album appeared on iTunes with the title The Dry Cell Collection, which included previously released material and several more. Four songs on the record had been on the band's MySpace months before the release. Since early 2010, there were no updates/news from the band. In 2012, it was revealed that Jeff Gutt has left the band in 2009 for good and the band is now defunct.

Elvis Aaron Presley was an American singer and actor. Regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, he is referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or "the King". Presley was born in Tupelo and relocated to Memphis, with his family when he was 13 years old, his music career began there in 1954, recording at Sun Records with producer Sam Phillips, who wanted to bring the sound of African-American music to a wider audience. Accompanied by guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, Presley was a pioneer of rockabilly, an uptempo, backbeat-driven fusion of country music and rhythm and blues. In 1955, drummer D. J. Fontana joined to complete the lineup of Presley's classic quartet and RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who would manage him for more than two decades. Presley's first RCA single, "Heartbreak Hotel", was released in January 1956 and became a number-one hit in the United States. With a series of successful network television appearances and chart-topping records, he became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll.
His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, made him enormously popular—and controversial. In November 1956, Presley made his film debut in Love Me Tender. Drafted into military service in 1958, Presley relaunched his recording career two years with some of his most commercially successful work, he held few concerts however, guided by Parker, proceeded to devote much of the 1960s to making Hollywood films and soundtrack albums, most of them critically derided. In 1968, following a seven-year break from live performances, he returned to the stage in the acclaimed television comeback special Elvis, which led to an extended Las Vegas concert residency and a string of profitable tours. In 1973, Presley gave the first concert by a solo artist to be broadcast around the world, Aloha from Hawaii. Years of prescription drug abuse compromised his health, he died in 1977 at his Graceland estate at the age of 42.
Presley is the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music. He was commercially successful in many genres, including pop, country and gospel, he won three competitive Grammys, received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, has been inducted into multiple music halls of fame. Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, to Gladys Love Presley in the two-room shotgun house built by his father, Vernon Elvis Presley, in preparation for the birth. Jesse Garon Presley, his identical twin brother, was delivered 35 minutes before stillborn. Presley became close to both parents and formed an close bond with his mother; the family attended an Assembly of God church. On his mother's side Presley's ancestry was Scots-Irish, with some French Norman. Gladys and the rest of the family believed that her great-great-grandmother, Morning Dove White, was Cherokee. Vernon's forebears were of Scottish origin. Gladys was regarded by friends as the dominant member of the small family.
Vernon moved from one odd job to the evincing little ambition. The family relied on help from neighbors and government food assistance. In 1938, they lost their home after Vernon was found guilty of altering a check written by his landowner and sometime employer, he was jailed for eight months, while Elvis moved in with relatives. In September 1941, Presley entered first grade at East Tupelo Consolidated, where his teachers regarded him as "average", he was encouraged to enter a singing contest after impressing his schoolteacher with a rendition of Red Foley's country song "Old Shep" during morning prayers. The contest, held at the Mississippi–Alabama Fair and Dairy Show on October 3, 1945, was his first public performance; the ten-year-old Presley was dressed as a cowboy. He recalled placing fifth. A few months Presley received his first guitar for his birthday. Over the following year, he received basic guitar lessons from two of his uncles and the new pastor at the family's church. Presley recalled, "I took the guitar, I watched people, I learned to play a little bit.
But I would never sing in public. I was shy about it."In September 1946, Presley entered a new school, for sixth grade. The following year, he began bringing his guitar to school on a daily basis, he played and sang during lunchtime, was teased as a "trashy" kid who played hillbilly music. By the family was living in a Black neighborhood. Presley was a devotee of Mississippi Slim's show on the Tupelo radio station WELO, he was described as "crazy about music" by Slim's younger brother, one of Presley's classmates and took him into the station. Slim supplemented Presley's guitar tuition by demonstrating chord techniques; when his protégé was twelve years old, Slim scheduled him for two on-air performances. Presley was succeeded in performing the following week. In November 1948, the family moved to Tennessee. After residing for nearly a year in rooming houses, they were granted a two-bedroom apartment in the public housing complex known as the Lauderdale Courts. Enrolled at L. C. Humes Hig
Hampshire College is a private liberal arts college in Amherst, Massachusetts. It was opened in 1970 as an experiment in alternative education, in association with four other colleges in the Pioneer Valley: Amherst College, Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Together they have since been known as the Five College Consortium; the college is known for its alternative curriculum liberal politics, focus on portfolios rather than distribution requirements, its reliance on narrative evaluations instead of grades and GPAs. In some fields, it is among the top undergraduate institutions in percentage of graduates who enroll in graduate school. Sixty-five percent of its alumni have at least one graduate degree and a quarter have founded their own business or organization, it is ranked #39 among U. S. colleges and universities by the percentage of graduates who go on to earn a doctorate degree according to National Science Foundation data. The college is seeking a merger.
In February 2019, the college announced that it would only admit students who were offered early admission or who had deferred admission. The idea for Hampshire College originated in 1958 when the presidents of Amherst, Mount Holyoke, Smith Colleges, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, appointed a committee to examine the assumptions and practices of liberal arts education, their report, "The New College Plan”, advocated many of the features that have since been realized in the Hampshire curriculum: inviting students to self-design their program of studies. In 1965, Amherst College alumnus Harold F. Johnson, inspired by the New College Plan, donated $6 million toward the founding of Hampshire College. With a matching grant from the Ford Foundation, Hampshire's first trustees purchased 800 acres of orchard and farmland in South Amherst and construction began. One of the most significant founding documents of Hampshire College is the book The Making of a College, co-written by the College's first president, Franklin Patterson, together with Hampshire's founding employee from Amherst College who would become its second president, Chuck Longsworth.
The Making of a College is out of print but available in electronic form from the Hampshire College Archives. Hampshire admitted its first students in 1970. For several years after its founding in the early 1970s, the large number of applications for matriculation caused Hampshire College to be among the most selective undergraduate programs in the United States, its admissions selectivity declined thereafter because of declining application popularity. The school's number of applications increased again in the late 1990s, causing increased admissions selectivity since then; the college's rate of admissions is now comparable to that of many other small liberal arts colleges. The school has been financially challenged through much of its history, in large part because it lacked a founding endowment to rely on for stability of income, it has relied on tuition income for operations; as of June 30, 2017, the endowment had risen to $48.5 million. In recent years, the school has been on more solid financial footing, though still lacking a sizable endowment.
In recent years its financial stability has relied on fundraising efforts led by its most recent president, Jonathan Lash. In the mid-1990s, the college began establishing a "cultural village" making possible the residence of independent non-profit organizations on its campus; the cultural village includes the National Yiddish Book Center, the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and The Hitchcock Center for the Environment. Adele Simmons served as the College's third president, from 1977 to 1989, the longest tenure of any Hampshire President. Gregory Prince served as its fourth president, from 1989 to 2005. On April 1, 2004, Prince announced his retirement, effective at the end of the 2004–2005 academic year. On April 5, 2005, the Board of Trustees named Ralph Hexter a dean at University of California, Berkeley's College of Letters and Science, as the college's next president, effective August 1, 2005. Hexter was inaugurated on October 15, 2005; the appointment made Hampshire one of a small number of colleges and universities in the United States with an gay president.
Professor Marlene Gerber Fried was interim president for one year from 2010 to 2011. Jonathan Lash was named the sixth president of the College in May, 2011, joining Hampshire as an internationally recognized expert on global sustainability, climate change, environmental challenges and solutions, he has been appointed by two US Presidents to serve on a national environmental council and commission. Lash served a long tenure until 2018, is followed by the College's seventh president, Miriam Nelson, beginning her appointment in July, 2018; the Hampshire College Archives in the Harold F. Johnson Library has extensively documented the College's history between 1965 and 2005, accessible on the College's Website. On August 23, 2012, the school announced the establishment of a scholarship fund dedicated to helping undocumented students get degrees, it would give more than $25,000 each year to help an undocumented student pay for the $43,000-plus tuition. On January 15, 2019, president Miriam Nelson announced that due to rising costs the college was to merge with another inst
A pastiche is a work of visual art, theatre, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work; the word pastiche is a French cognate of the Italian noun pasticcio, a pâté or pie-filling mixed from diverse ingredients. Metaphorically and pasticcio describe works that are either composed by several authors, or that incorporate stylistic elements of other artists' work. Pastiche is an example of eclecticism in art. Allusion is not pastiche. A literary allusion may refer to another work. Moreover, allusion requires the audience to share in the author's cultural knowledge. Both allusion and pastiche are mechanisms of intertextuality. In literature usage, the term denotes a literary technique employing a light-hearted tongue-in-cheek imitation of another's style; the word implies a lack of originality or coherence, an imitative jumble, but with the advent of postmodernism pastiche has become positively constructed as deliberate, witty homage or playful imitation.
For example, many stories featuring Sherlock Holmes penned by Arthur Conan Doyle, have been written as pastiches since the author's time. Ellery Queen and Nero Wolfe are other popular subjects of mystery pastiches. A similar example of pastiche is the posthumous continuations of the Robert E. Howard stories, written by other writers without Howard's authorization; this includes the Conan the Barbarian stories of Lin Carter. David Lodge's novel The British Museum Is Falling Down is a pastiche of works by Joyce and Virginia Woolf. In 1991 Alexandra Ripley wrote the novel Scarlett, a pastiche of Gone with the Wind, in an unsuccessful attempt to have it recognized as a canonical sequel. In 2017, John Banville published Mrs. Osmond, a sequel to Henry James's The Portrait of a Lady, written in a style similar to that of James. In 2018, Ben Schott published Jeeves and the King of Clubs, an homage to P. G. Wodehouse's character Jeeves, with the blessing of the Wodehouse estate. Charles Rosen has characterized Mozart's various works in imitation of Baroque style as pastiche, Edvard Grieg's Holberg Suite was written as a conscious homage to the music of an earlier age.
Some of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's works, such as his Variations on a Rococo Theme and Serenade for Strings, employ a poised "classical" form reminiscent of 18th-century composers such as Mozart. One of the best examples of pastiche in modern music is that of George Rochberg, who used the technique in his String Quartet No. 3 of 1972 and Music for the Magic Theater. Rochberg turned to pastiche from serialism after the death of his son in 1963. "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen is unusual as it is a pastiche in both senses of the word, as there are many distinct styles imitated in the song, all "hodge-podged" together to create one piece of music. A similar earlier example is. One can find musical "pastiches" throughout the work of the American composer Frank Zappa. A pastiche Mass is a musical Mass. Most this convention has been chosen for concert performances by early-music ensembles. Masses are composed of movements: Kyrie, Credo, Agnus Dei. In a pastiche Mass, the performers may choose a Kyrie from one composer, a Gloria from another.
In musical theatre pastiche is an indispensable tool for evoking the sounds of a particular era for which a show is set. For the 1971 musical Follies, a show about a reunion of performers from a musical revue set between the World Wars, Stephen Sondheim wrote over a dozen songs in the style of Broadway songwriters of the 1920s and 1930s. Sondheim imitates not only the music of composers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George Gershwin but the lyrics of writers such as Ira Gershwin, Dorothy Fields, Otto Harbach, Oscar Hammerstein II. For example, Sondheim notes that the torch song "Losing My Mind" sung in the show contains "near-stenciled rhythms and harmonies" from the Gershwins' "The Man I Love" and lyrics written in the style of Dorothy Fields. Examples of musical pastiche appear in other Sondheim shows including Gypsy, Saturday Night and Anyone Can Whistle. Pastiche can be a cinematic device whereby filmmakers pay homage to another filmmaker's style and use of cinematography, including camera angles and mise en scène.
A film's writer may offer a pastiche based on the works of other writers. Italian director Sergio Leone`s Once Upon a Time in the West is a pastiche of earlier American Westerns. Another major filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino uses various plots and themes from many lesser-known films to create his films, among them from the films of Sergio Leone, in effect creating a pastiche of a pastiche. Tarantino has stated that "I steal from every single movie made." Director Todd Haynes' 2002 film Far From Heaven was a conscious attempt to replicate a typical Douglas Sirk melodrama - in particular All That Heaven Allows. The film works as a reverential and unironic tribute to Sirk's filmmaking, lovingly re-creating the stylized mise-en-scene, costumes and lighting of Sirkian melodrama. In cinema, the inf
