So I was looking at the wikipedia entry for the actress, Fairuza Balk, who some might recognize from Almost Famous, The Waterboy, and others.

I was surprised to read this little section of her bio:

In 2011, Balk began to exhibit art in Los Angeles and New York. On August 4, 2012, she participated in the group show 'MiXTAPE', with other notable artists .... Artists were asked to pick a song and create art inspired by that song. Balk chose the song "Nuages" by Django Reinhardt and created a 16"x20"x12" mixed-media sculpture.

I found a picture of her artwork and it is below. I don't know that a rusty walkman and can headphones speak "Django" to me, but hey, that is art. It moves people in different ways. I just found it neat to see that Django continues to inspire people beyond our small world of GJ musicians and aficionados.
