catalog numbers for books[edit]

Hi ... I just ran in to this discussion Talk:List_of_Adolf_Hitler_books#I_was_rather_surprised. If you're still looking for an ISBN for the book you mentioned, you can see it at this link OCLC 11888468. Kind Regards, Keesiewonder 12:18, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your note! I think I've only seen Pulis from a distance, like at a dog show or something. i.e. I don't think I've ever had a chance to pet one. What color is yours? Are they one of the dogs whose fur can be used for spinning? Keesiewonder 23:21, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

One more thing ... I find it useful to provide an ISBN or if that is not available an OCLC for books that I list. Especially if it is not one that is commonly known and is in an article that may be controversial. If I cannot find an ISBN, OCLC, LCCN or ASIN for a book, and no library that I can be in touch with seems to have it (because of a terrible typo, say, in the author's name), then I may have serious doubts as to whether or not the book even exists. Just my perspective. Keesiewonder 23:25, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:AudreyMunsonInspiration.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:AudreyMunsonInspiration.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Yamla 22:22, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

You said: "thumb|88px|leftI just discovered your message regarding the copyright issues with Image:AudreyMunsonInspiration.jpg. Here is the story that goes along with that, and you can feel free to do the right thing. I wrote the article on Audrey Munson some time ago and at the time wanted to get a picture to show something about her movie career. I was mostly interested in her as a model for sculptors and other artists. So I got on the www and found the fellow who owned the rights to the picture and explained wikipedia to him and he said, "Sure, go ahead and use it." His name is included in whatever copyright information I included. I tend to hold on to such email, but I've suffered many computer crashes, system changes, etc since and might not still have the correspondence. Anyway, I'll look for it, and that's my pitch."

Okay, I'm guessing this picture is old enough to be public domain now. Any way to identify what year it was created? That's the easiest approach here. Otherwise, if it is new enough to still be covered by copyright, I think we are just going to have to ditch the image. But I think it is probably old enough. --Yamla 00:15, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

You helped me out before, so . . . . . . . . . . . . ...............[edit]

I need some help setting up a Category page. What I'd like to see on wikipedia is Category: Sculptors who exhibited at the 3rd Sculpture International. More and more of the artists who were there are showing up at wikipedia, so there are (opinion) enough to get the category going. Here is a handful of them. Chaim Gross, Pablo Picasso, C. Paul Jennewein, Albert Wein, Adolph Alexander Weinman, Jo Davidson, Milton Horn, Jacques Lipchitz and more. There are 250 in all, though most of those are not in wikipedia . . .... yet. Anyway. I am hoping that you can set this page, or whatever, up for me. Life is good. Carptrash 00:09, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion re: "Sacrifice" photo[edit]

I really do think it would be a good idea to take the photo to a local university anthropologist. Now if you do, there's a distinct possibility you'll get this response: "Oh, yeah, I've seen dozens just like that, here's my paper on it", in which case it would immediately become verifiable. Another response could be: "Fascinating, I must study this", which would be even more interesting, though it wouldn't make the sacrifice verifiable until there's a study. The other major possible response would of course be this: "Oh, that's probably just some jerk messing around with a dead dog," which is why the image is just not suitable for Wikipedia as of now. The problem is, we just don't have verifiable information that anyone habitually sacrifices dogs in this manner. Thanks.--Pharos 05:42, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Hello. You write to me: "in getting people to vote about this picture which was just removed from the sacrifice article, so am contacting some of the folks who have contributed to the page. Please consider taking a few minutes, looking it over, and voicing an opinion. Thanks. Carptrash 04:13, 28 January 2007 (UTC)"

I don't can't this picture. I'm just only add Polish version article pl:Ofiara. I poore understanding English language but sorry if you i'm wrong and write error. Bye Stepa 06:28, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Hi. As I understand it, the objection to use of the photo appears to be that one doesn't know whether the animal was sacrificed or not. It certainly has a ritual appearance of some sort. But perhaps the animal died first, not having been intentionally killed by anyone, and then someone performed a commemorative ritual by placing stones around it. Considering the uncertainty involved, why not include the photo with a caption along the lines of, "The sacrifice of an animal often entails some sort of ritual arrangement or placement of the corpse. The careful display of the dead animal seen in this photo suggests that it may have been sacrificed, although this is not known with certainty. The photo was taken by a hiker in New Mexico who happened on the scene."

[Here you might add, if you know, some information as to whether people living in the vicinity, perhaps native Americans, have any history or tradition of engaging in animal sacrifice.]

I hope this helps you decide! MdArtLover 15:12, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

  • You're welcome; thanks for thinking of me. Sorry I couldn't vote to keep it. It must have been quite startling when you found it, though. Do you know whether such sacrifice is common where you found it? Maybe someday, you're photo will be in high demand! Keesiewonder talk 16:08, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
  • The observant rock is excellent! Has someone analyzed what they feel is depicted in it? A face, etc.? And the photo has the highly desired token red (remembrance?) blooms. One thing that is hard to see in the photo that the carcass is in fact a dog ... looks more fox like from the bit I can see. It is hard to get a sense of size from the photo since there isn't anything in it that I immediately see for scale purposes. A 75 lb. dog is a pretty big dog.

Marquette Building (Chicago)[edit]

I haven't heard from you in a while. You seem to be continuing your positive contributions. Thanks for the edits to Marquette Building (Chicago). I have been a bit remiss myself, but I am trying to get in the habit of citing references properly now that I am the defacto administrator of the CHICOTW. If you look at some of the recent articles there you can see what the citation method I am trying to use. Is it possible you could cite as per the notice that I added to the top of the article page that I just added. TonyTheTiger 21:55, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for clarifying where your great additions came from. TonyTheTiger 16:09, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

core shamanism[edit]

Surprisingly, I still remember that three month old tagging. I'm not going to delete that statement any time soon, I'd rather that someone cite it instead. Do you have any way of citing those Harner shamans' complaints? I mean, can you just cite that they complained about this? Have they published it anywhere, or has anyone else published about their complaints? Any of that would be helpful. — coelacan talk — 09:21, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello Carptrash,

I kind of feel sympathy for your worries about original research. I sometimes shiver at what the patrols might do about creative research next, once they observe it to escape their whittering breath of immortality. Maybe what they really want is to immitate an encyclopedia...

Sorry have to go, duty calls (could talk for hours though)

On The Road Again[edit]

Being of the meathead/meatball variety myself and, contrary to rumour, not that much of a Dickhead I'm perhaps not the best authority on that phallus thing (could be a lingam though), but I'm sure to trust you with the expertise. Visiting your Userpage I had this great feeling of Déja vu; that "Wired" thing brought it home. It's "On The Road"...That great highway in the sky, the dharma bums...

Boy, am I glad nobody ever made you a professor. Nobody ever volunteered to make me one, either. Those were the wise nobodies. And now we have so many volunteering to make us as good as themselves. That's fame I guess (the silly b*ggers)

About the expertise thing. For a moment I thought "Man and His Symbols" by Carl Jung, Jaffé e.a. might give, but it just skirts the issue. Section 3, by Henderson in the last few paragraphs of his contribution (can't well cite, have it in French) gets very close with his analysis of a sky rocket (related to phallic symbolism of Hermes). At least it has a very suggestive fotograph. I am sure you know it. Still have not had a clear read of the Phallus article though.

Now, if we could prove that towers sometimes take off like sky rockets...HA! The b*ggers are panicking already!

Re: Battle of Cieneguilla[edit]

Well, it's probably something to consider on a case-by-case basis. Here, the archaeologist clearly has access to the transcripts; the question is whether they're something the general public can get at (in which case you'd have a fairly legitimate claim for using them as primary sources).

In any case, I look forward to actually seeing an article for this topic; it seem like it'd be quite interesting to read. Kirill Lokshin 21:36, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the thumbs up Carptrash. I learned alot of stuff while working on the article. Much appreciated. -- Szvest - Wiki me up ® 19:20, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

FYI...Cantonment Burgwin has just been created. -- Szvest - Wiki me up ® 12:11, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Now I see that John Davidson (general) has suddenly appeared. I went to Santa Fe (the capitol of New Mexico) two days ago - went to the State Library and Historical Archives and found a copy of his biography by his grandson, Xeroxed the pages regarding the Battle of Cieneguilla and am reviewing those. The real interesting part of his story (opinion) begins when he returns to the West after the Civil War as on officer for the Buffalo Soldiers. Now I will have to get that book again. HOWEVER - our connection began when you responded to a question of mine regarding original research. I have now found the letter from Lt. Bell written shortly after Cieneguilla in which Bell, who was out here (Northern New Mexico) at the time presents a very different view of the fight and makes some of the allegations that lead to the Official Inquiry. A typed version of Bell's letter was given to me by the archeologist who was investigating the battle a few years ago and I have no idea how, or even IF the general public could access it. So do I use the letter in the article or not? Actually I will use it, but and any one else, will get to decide if the POV contained in it is admissible or not. Life . It is supposed to be interesting. I also have a large piece of the transcript of the Court of Inquiry that I hope to get around to including. Carptrash 15:54, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
When i titled the sections "The role of Lieutenant Davidson" and "Court of inquiry" i wanted to give a context to the battle. I am not meaning by that that i wanted to focus on Davidson's mishandling of the battle or the opposite but i just wanted to focus on the encyclopaedic aspect of the battle. So, IMHO, the letter is of a high encyclopaedic value and should be mentioned. However, we should not, in any case, argue about its content. In other words, we can only state what's in it without judging its content (i.e. saying the allegations are right or not). This approach respects the nature of NPOV. If we read carefully the article as it is now, we will notice that the two sections above-mentioned do not give credit to neither Bell nor Davidson and so should be the letter. We only state facts and cannot analyze. Cheers. -- FayssalF - Wiki me up ® 17:10, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Free images should be hosted on Commons: and not Wikipedia, as then they are available to be used in all Wikimedia projects. The Commonshelper is a tool designed to expedite that process.

Hey. Thanks for the message. I am very new to wikipedia (obviously). I don't know what a waymarker is, but thats probably the case. I just got bored. I really like the way that wikipedia entries show up in google earth, so I thought I would add some coordinates in where there weren't any. Thanks for the tip about adding to my profile. I'll give that a shot.

Thanks for the tips. The mking part of my name refer to my middle initial and last name. I know most folks prefer more anonymous handles online but I feel this is easier and I dont really buy into all the conspiracy theories and privacy issues. Personal preferences i guess.

UDM and Corrado Parducci[edit]

No, not clairvoiant as much I have tried in life, never worked. It is right in the Corrado Parducci article itself that some of his work was at UD(nowM). If you ever have time or inclination that article could be expanded, you obviously do have quite a lot of info on him but its totally up to you, the article is okay now. --Mikerussell 06:02, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

A map of his work around Detroit would be quite interesting, although I have no idea how it would look or how much work is involved in that. You must have been at Eastern when George Gervin was there? Around that time if you mention Haywood, or am I off a few years? As a kid growing in Toronto I used to have a big "Iceman" poster on my wall of Gervin when he was still playing with the Spurs.--Mikerussell 16:33, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Gargoyle picture[edit]

Hi there - sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I very seldom bother to log in to Wikipedia nowadays, so it's typically about a month before I notice messages left for me!

Anyway, you left a comment about a gargoyle picture of mine. As I recall, I've contributed two photographs to the article - one is a grotesque on the gallery of Notre Dame in Paris, and the other is looking down on the channel in a gargoyle on Sacre Coeur in Paris.

Both of those appear to still be on the article. Was there a different photograph that you were asking about? - MykReeve T·C 14:28, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Beginnings of Art Deco[edit]

1910 is a good starting date for Art Deco because the beginning of Art Deco was influenced by the Futurist painter's manifesto of 1910 and the Armory Show of 1913 where the Cubist painters inspired early Art Deco. Already by 1913, early Art Deco set designs were being created and by 1916 Art Deco tile designs were appearing on buildings. Keraunos 04:34, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Note: If you are originally from Iceland or have relatives there, you might be interested to look at the article I wrote 100% of on the color Rose. Go to the color Thulian Pink which is in that article and you will see that another name for Thulian Pink is Icelandic Pink. Best wishes, Keraunos 04:50, 3 March 2007 (UTC) P.S. I created the Shades of Pink Color Comparison Chart 2/3 of the way down the article on the color Rose and I expanded the Shades of Pink color template at the bottom of the article from 10 to 35 different shades of pink. Yours, Keraunos 04:58, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

My moms favorite song of Linda Ronstadt is "Love is a Rose". If you could play that, I know both of us would love it. I enjoy the song too. Have a wonderful day!

Oh, did you see? I just created a page for Love is a Rose! It's my first page, so it's probably bad, but if you could look at it, I'd be thrilled. I know there is a lot to do, and I'm going to try to do it, but I woud love to have some advice if there are any glaring problems.

I'm working with an admin and between the two of us, this page is looking pretty decent. I still need to add info about Linda Ronstadt, which I will do in a bit, but this page is starting to finally look like a real page.

I'm not sure what else the page needed - do I need to put a lot of information about her, or just information pertaining to the song? It's hard to find information on this song that's specifically about/by her, because Youngs results keep coming in as well. I wasn't sure if I could put that, or if I should make the page for both of their versions of the song. If you have any ideas, I'd be very thankful. Have a good day!

Wirt Rowland[edit]

See what you think of Wirt C. Rowland edit. Love those Corrado Parducci scupture photos, place insert a gallery for each Detroit building. Thomas Paine1776 00:10, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Second W. S. Stratton statue[edit]

It's not the greatest foto, but I did have a picture of the Stratton statue in downtown Colorado Springs, and I have uploaded it to the article. No equestrian statue here. "Winfield Scott Stratton" is clearly legible on the base of the statue. It's obviously on Nevada Avenue, but I forget the cross street.Plazak 03:03, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

Thanks for the photos. Let's have some more! Need University of Detroit photos, especially U-D Law School downtown Dowling Hall at 651 E Jefferson. Bankers Trust at Congress & Shelby in Detroit (is that Parducci's work?), the detailed facade in the arches of Cadillac Place (is that Parducci's carving?), Detroit Free Press building (321 West Lafayette) by Albert Kahn, Metropolitan Building at 33 & John R, and the Hurbut Memorial Gate at Waterworks Park (E Jefferson at Cadillac Blvd). Also need photos of Cranbrook House, Cranbrook School at 39221 Woodward, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Cranbrook Science Institute, there is already a photo of the Cranbrook Art Museum, but some better close ups of the statues would be nice, Christ Church Cranbrook, Belle Isle Scott Fountain, Louis Kamper's Eighth Precinct looks like a "Castle" at 4150 Grand RiverThomas Paine1776 22:44, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

An excellent photo angle would be a color one of the Michigan Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument (Randolph Rogers sculpture) with the new emerald green glass One Kennedy Square in the background on Campus Martius. There is one like this in the external link under One Kennedy Square for Downtown Detroit Photographs. Then another photo of the monument with the golden topaz Compuware World Headquarters. Also, are you aware of the magnificent facade of Detroit Cornice & Slate Co (1897) at 733 Antoine. Wirt Rowland was the Architect for the Bankers Trust Company (1925) (low rise) at Congress & Shelby, so it seems Parducci would have had to have done the magnificent sculptures. If you haven't seen them, let me know. Albert Kahn designed the Detroit Trust Company a different one at 201 West Fort & Shelby.Thomas Paine1776 01:17, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

What's up?[edit]

I just saw your edit to your user page. What's happening? Please feel free to respond here or on my talk page. I think you're too good of a contributor for us to want to lose if we can avoid it. John Carter 15:26, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
