arts·meme turns eight, expresses self 18

Ideas & Opinion


arts·meme has been a good little girl. She writes timely blog-posts, publishes them with nice pictures, inserts proper hot-links.

Now it’s her turn to show off. Do-mi-so-do-so-mi-do. Fa-la-la-la.

To celebrate the blog’s eighth birthday (founded on May 24, 2008 by Debra Levine with Mark Levine as talented tech man), arts•meme would like to sing you a song. An aria.

Could she come over to your house and do that right now?


Enjoy our birthday-posts through the years, all eight of ’em:

    You’re the most grown up eight-year old I know — reeling in the big stories…and such a beaut you’ve become too! When I was eight, I was hardly grown up. I think that was the year for a big boy bicycle. Well done, Debra. Precocious in every way.
