This is so interesting! I can see both transcendent cool in here along with dissident cool.
Neat-O, Zagurski! I like the pictures and the words you chose--they reflect what I know about your vision of cool perfectly!

Awesome way to bring us into your choices! I think it's interesting (and funny) how you use the word Maverick - a word that was heavily used in the last political presidential cycle. When you think of "maverick," what do you mean? Is the word actually cool anymore?
The picture of the woman in typical muslim dress is powerful.I would have to agree that it's a very cool picture. What are all the different kinds of cool you took out of it?
I love that you have a woman violinist. It speaks volumes to me as a female violinist! It is not your average cool, but I have to agree it is. There is something about that classical instrument that can still span the gap of its original intent and the ways it has developed through time. It makes me proud.
