Radio Lab Blog

I am really amazed that Mantis shrimp can see the most colors of any animal on earth. I also never considered light to be a physical object before  I knew it could be manipulated (obviously) but I never considered it as something in the physical space, I felt it was more ethereal but I didn't give it serious thought till now. I really liked the opera music that they used in the background of the podcast, it made it funny and entertaining when they would repeat everything they said in chorus.

Self Portraits I like/Dont like

I like this self portrait by Frida Khalo because she expresses herself and the pain that she was feeling very well in her art. She was pretty new at painting as well which makes this even more spectacular.

I dont like this portrait by picasso because its relatively simple and doesnt show much detail of his facial features in it. To me it looks almost as if a child had painted it and not someone as famous and talented as picasso.
