Two Versions of Ex's & Oh's

By Elle King and Grace VanderWaal

Tanner Elle Schneider (born July 3, 1989), known professionally as Elle King, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Her musical style encompasses country, soul, rock and blues.[6] In 2012, King released her debut EP, The Elle King EP, on RCA. The EP track "Playing for Keeps" is the theme song for VH1's Mob Wives Chicago series. She released her debut album, Love Stuff on February 17, 2015. The album produced the US top 10 single "Ex's & Oh's," which earned her two Grammy Award nominations. King has also toured with acts such as Of Monsters and Men, Train and Michael Kiwanuka. She is the daughter of comedian Rob Schneider and former model London King. 

VanderWaal was born near Kansas City, Kansas, to Tina and David VanderWaal, who lived in Lenexa at the time. The family later moved to Suffern, New York. Since winning America's Got Talent, VanderWaal has been home-schooled and enrolled in online courses. VanderWaal began composing her first songs at age three, using a wireless microphone. As a preteen, she found songwriting inspiration by watching movies and trying to imagine what a character was feeling, and "what it would be like if I were them, and wrote a song." She was inspired to learn the ukulele after watching a family friend play and seeing a Twenty One Pilots video on YouTube. She then bought one, using money she had received for her 11th birthday, and watched more videos to teach herself how to play. She has also played the saxophone in her school's marching band.[10] After learning to play the ukulele, VanderWaal began to perform during open mic events at small venues near her home and to study music theory. In July 2016, after her audition on AGT, VanderWaal performed at the Lafayette Theatre in Suffern and at the Ramapo Summer Concert Series at Palisades Credit Union Park.

Nathalie Duivenvoorden

Nathalie goes with the color pencil as a painter. Layer by layer from the stain in place of the line, concentrating on the light. They go looking for places where something might occur. For a moment it looks as if a stage is built, ready for a show starting. LINK Nathalie Duivenvoorden

How to destroy a work of art

Artwork could muster tonnes was shredded in shredder

An artwork of artist Willem Hussem also razed to the ground by the demolition of the old post office in Raalte. The meter-high aluminum object is fragmented into the shredder. But the yield in the metal trade is much lower than the estimated value of the art object. Which is possibly a ton. Thanks PostNL for the right information to the demolition crew! LINK NRC (in Dutch)
