BEAUTIFUL LOSERS celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation
In the early 1990′s a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the “establishment” art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture.
Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes “in” as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today’s youth.

We recently announced that Google profile results now appear at the bottom of U.S. name-query search pages. Creating a profile gives you greater control over what people find when they search for your name on Google. Your profile can include online photos, links to your blog or other online profiles, and ways for people to contact you — and you can restrict contact information like your address and phone number to only the people and groups you choose.
When creating a profile, you have the option to use your Gmail username as a your profile URL (profiles.google.com/yourusername), so it’s easier to remember and share. Some examples:
If you want people to be able to contact you, but don’t want to reveal your email address to the world, you can hide your username and use a 24 digit number instead. Turn on the ‘Send a message’ feature, and anyone with a Google Account can send you a message through your profile, without having your email address revealed to them.
Don’t have a profile? Go to www.google.com/profiles to get started.
We are not talking about the venomous limbless scaly elongate reptile but a text analytic snake (a.k.a crawler) – COBRA (Corporate Brand and Reputation Analysis). IBM’s brand monitoring tool.
The brainchild of IBM’s research and consulting team, COBRA builds on the advanced data mining capabilities of IBM to help the client keep a finger on the pulse of millions of daily digital postings. Basically, it crawls the social space where conversations took place.
