Lately, I've taken to TiVo-ing CBS News Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. Here are some of the reasons:

1.) I like Charles's voice. (I listen to him on the radio.)
2.) I'm fond of the varied sun-image bumpers that bookend the segments.
3.) Wynton Marsalis performs the inspired theme song.
4.) There are usually several reports in a given episode that I find fascinating, informative, and/or entertaining.

This past Sunday, they did a spot on Chuck Close. Last May, I was captivated by an exhibit of his work at The Ft. Worth Museum of Modern Art.

I share this 'cause I think you'll be a better person after viewing it. And I'm always on the lookout for ya. Here's the clip: Chuck Close Video

Yeah, he's awesome. Or, at least his patience and perseverance is way, way beyond just being impressive. I saw a really good show of his work last June at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta that was great. Seeing the stuff in person-- that he actually painted parts literally "out of focus" to mimic a photograph was so neat. And I love the tiny square paintings, or whatever they call them, too.
