Hemingway Home and Museum pictures are now a video on YouTube.com

I combined a bunch of my old Hemingway Home and Museum pictures from my Google Plus collection with some music, and created video with it on YouTube.com. I titled it: “Hemingway House and Museum (pictures) video” I made it for those who need something extra for school projects or research and since I took the photos you can do what you want with it.

New YouTube playlist:“TP’s homework music”

Dudes, I have been stuck with homework up the ass this holiday season and the weather sucks so I had to create a YouTube playlist to keep my energy up for my homework, various pre-holiday activities and to keep my mind off the foolish that is Oak Park, IL or when I come from the laundry after I clean dog shit off my shoes.

Yes, I cleaned that GOD DAMN dog shit off in the laundry area sink I figure the same motherfuckers who leave their dog’s shit out on the sidewalk are the same ones who put their dog’s doggy beds in the building’s general public washing machines. Nasty fucks so now they can deal with their dog’s shit in the sink too!

Anyway, I made my cool and hyperactive playlist with 70’s to today’s music from a large pool of different artists and genres and I call it, “TP’s homework music” if you want to try it out this is the playlist’s link:

Working on YouTube for the blog and me!

I really have not played with or tried out YouTube outside of listening to the occasional song or posting a video about Oak Park happening that I have been lucky to catch on film. Recently I have been putting together playlists for different occasions like when I need a block of songs for school work or even when I feel a bit WESTSIDE!!!

Below is a sample I have been working on as it pertains to my You Tube channel which is of course under my name listed on the blog. Enjoy some west side feelings right here:

Ernest Hemingway’s influence outside of Oak Park, IL

Hemingway’s influence has spanned not only throughout Literature, but into other media as well, from songs to film expanding his influence and mythology of the man and his legend, Even the slightest mention of the writer enhances his legend, but of course not all the mentions of Hemingway is covered by The major parties in Oak Park, IL. Mostly because they artist or parties involved are not reflective of the pristine imagery or just do not have that mainstream appeal that many in Oak Park, IL believe promotes the Heming way brand the way they want.

Take for example Prince who mentions Hemingway in the 1992 song “Love 2 the 9’s” well, the oversexualized artist is not someone you want to link to Hemingway, regardless of his popularity at the time. The 1960’s Batman Tv series mentions Hemingway in the 1966 episode The Bookworm Turns using the “For Whom The Bell Tolls” as a bomb by the villain the Bookworm, to blow up the Batmobile. The Hemingway song, sung by Marie Cain, written by Terrie Frankel, talking about the loves of Ernest Hemingway.

All these fantastic mentions of Hemingway go outside the cleaned up version that is presented by the village of Oak Park, IL they all push the boundaries of how to use the legend. In fact, some of these “clean” factions challenge the famous “wide lawns” saying something taught by most of my English teachers and mentioned by such groups as the National Endowment of the Humanities.

A saying that is as classic as George Washington’s “I would not tell a lie” but since it does fit the convenient or picture perfect presentation of Hemingway it just cannot be, and of course challenged fanatically by these groups.

I do believe all the mentions and usages of Hemingway I mentioned here, could open up more people who never would have picked up a book to be interested in the writings or action of Hemingway giving way to an increase number of fertile minds to who Hemingway was, and other endless possibilities.

But unfortunately Oak Park, Il proves that it does not matter if Hemingway was the actual creator or the “wide lawns” statement or not, that they do have narrow minds especially when it comes to how to reach others who may be interested in Hemingway ways that are different than their own. Maybe, the reason why this happens is because the people interested are different from what this “diverse” village wants include in their perfect little conclaves of culture. Heaven forbid.
