Prissy’s Pick of the week is Indy Car Series and Nascar Driver, Danica Patrick. Named rookie of the year in
2005, Danica has been on full throttle with signs of breaking. Currently driving the #7 GoDaddy.comHonda/Dallara for Andretti Autosport, Patrick became the 1st woman to win an Indy car race in 2008. In 2009, she recorded the highest finsih by a woman in the event’s history. Danica accomplished another milestone in the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series when she became the first woman to lead a lap at the Daytona International Speedway where she also had her best finish of 4th in that series.

WHEN LOOKING AT THE present as an indication of where we’ll stand a year from now–much less a decade–feeling optimistic may not come easy. We look out to the universe and see an infinite, lifeless abyss enfolding upon our own small pocket of civilization, while the people we look to for guidance and information seem to be little more than straight-faced bearers of bad news.
Yet while we can’t predict what the future holds for our unending political discourses, we can look at how far we’ve come with technology in merely the last decade and realize the present we know now will, very soon, find itself memorialized in nostalgia. Here’s some technology emerging down the road that’s poised to change your life on a much greater scale than any outcome of a political debate.

The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck’s own creation and unlike anything I’ve seen. Hope you enjoy. –Spike Jonze, http://www.openingceremony.us/entry.asp?pid=3238
