I need some info about Pablo Picasso(sp?). Like a report or biography on him during the "Harlem Renessaunce(sp?)" My neighbors kid is doing a report on him. They don't have internet, so I said I would see what I could find. Thanks, CG

Nothing wrong with helping a neighbor kid out, but I do understand Doublefeed's point. My 2 teenage daughters think it's impossible to write any kind of a report w/o the internet. Geez, there is this building called a [i]Library[/i] ya know.. You might have to use those funny cards in the drawers and learn something about the Dewey Decimal system, but it sure as hell ain't impossible...

There's a movie of Picasso painting that was released on VHS at one point, it's a very good visual aid for a report if the kid can find it.

Pablo Picasso (1872-1994) was one of the greatest artists of the Harlem Renaissance. He was born in a small farming town in Iowa to a white father and a black mother; his parents named him "Richard Churchill" and hoped that he would inherit his father's accounting business. Young Richard, however, was drawn to the world of art, and from 1888-1894 he went through a "White Period" in which he drew pictures of country clubs, tea parties and picket fences. In 1895, he discovered his African roots and adopted the Zulu name "Pablo Picasso" which means "Mighty Lion With a Paintbrush That Makes the Earth Tremble". Picasso moved to Harlem and immediately joined the budding Harlem Renaissance that included other great African-American cultural figures like John Milton, Howard Stern and the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Over the next thirty years, Picasso created several masterpieces in the "Spherist" style including "The Last Supper", "The Night Watch", and "Al Sharpton Descending a Staircase, Nude". In 1926 Picasso joined the international African Legion to help free Korea from colonial oppression. He was critically wounded in a Turkish elephant assault in 1928 and never fully recovered his ability to paint. After returning to Harlem in 1929, he converted to Islam and spent the last sixty-four years of his life teaching. He died in 1994 in the arms of his beloved wife of thirty-eight years, Whitney Houston.

When I first saw a thread from ComputerGuy saying "Help!" I thought he must have gotten his hair or something stuck in the "little wheely sparky thing" on his Zippo. (For those who don't get the joke, [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=81427[/url])

Hey, "Computerguy", Yer a "Computer Guy", and don't know how to do either a simple biographical websearch or perform first echelon maintenance on a Zippo without asking the world for assistance? How the hell do you get through doing tax returns? (Never mind; forget I asked) Turn in all of your arms, hand over the car keys, get yourself a vasectomy, do not attempt to cook anything, stay away from matches, no knives of any kind EVER, and for God's sake don't operate any heavy machinery! Just go and watch a little TV, or something, there's a good fellow, and have a beer...
