From Bitch With Wi-Fi:   Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has created an organization to encourage kids, teens, and young people to be creative – to get out there and just do it (no nod to Nike intended), his organization encourages kids to participate in art and music – to hit record and go, without criticizing themselves or trying to be perfect.  It’s a damn fine idea!

I will periodically cross-post (reblog) HitRecord posts from Tumblr.  This is the most recent.

The topic is Home.

This is a good topic too.
