Make-Up With Pure Ingredients: An Open Letter to Entrepreneurs

Dear Entrepreneur,

I hope you'll create a makeup line with pure (100% non-toxic) ingredients. (See the Environmental Working Group's Cosmetics Database to see what I mean.)

As a magazine writer (for Senses Art and Culture Magazine, and Positive Change, Sarasota) and as the editor and publisher of the online magazine RawFoodsNewsMagazine.com, I know I speak for many women when I say I have not been able to find a line of cosmetics with non-toxic ingredients.

Burt's Bees used to make some, but they no longer do. I believe they didn't market them well. With all of the media coverage about protecting the environment, the general public is much more interested in green products than ever before! If I created a line of pure makeup, I would market it with sexy ads in women's magazines. And I would make sure my company's lip liners and eye liners, blush, eye shadow and lipsticks were available in a range of colors to flatter all skin tones and age groups. I have olive skin, and the three products I need the most are a bright coral lip liner, a black eyeliner pencil, and a coral blush.

The first company to create a line of pure cosmetics that address all colors and that are marketed to all women--not just nature lovers--will make billions.

An Open Letter to Michael Moore

If Michael Moore's people see this, please ask him to read the open letter to him that you can see by clicking on the above headline.

And by the way, I saw his new film Sicko tonight and it was brilliant! If anyone wants to see it (and I highly recommend it), there's a link to it free, online, at the blog of www.MySpace.com/rawgrrl

Sicko shines a light on what's wrong with the US health care system, and what's so right about the free health care systems in many other countries. As in: Why can't WE provide free health care for all?

As Awesome as Sweeney Todd

I love the Broadway show Sweeney Todd for the way it expresses frustration at injustice. And now the Tony-Award winning Broadway Musical Spring Awakening stands right next to Sweeney Todd in that department. Click on the headline above to see the performance of "The Bitch of Living" from that show. It's breathtaking.

Morphing Past Art Into a New Work

This animation (click on the headline above) is magical, awesome!
Whoever did this really took the time to arrange the faces in like-order.
Amazing. I wish I knew who did this so I could compliment them.
I'd like to see this done with celebrity faces.
