  • Off to Highline for Sat afternoon walk. #
  • Umm…there’s a line to get onto the Highline. Only in New York kids, only in New York. #
  • a view of the Roxana Pérez-Méndez & Gabriel Martinez performance at X-Initiative’s No Soul For Sale: #
  • If No Soul For Sale is “a festival of independents” why’s it sponsored by ArtinAmerica & Interview (i.e. corporate media) & not indie media? #
  • Spotted a nice (& very literal) @Elbowtoe in the Far West Village: #
  • George Segal’s “The Commuters” (1980) at the Port Authority: #
  • Legendary Graff’er Iz the Wiz (aka Michael Martin) “longest-reigning all-city king in NYC history” died Jun 17: @NYTimes #
  • Coincidentally, is the Iz the Wiz obit in the @NYTimes the first one ever given to a graffiti writer? If so, that’s BIG! #
  • Seems the Brits scooped @nytimes re: Iz the Wiz RT @quinnjames: London’s @telegraphMG obit’d the wiz last week: #
  • RT @TinyDomingos: RT @jafurtado German dance legend Pina Bausch dies at 68 #
  • The FDA may ban Percocets & Vicodin? HOW WILL WE LIVE!?!?!?! via @nytimes #
  • RT @artfagcity @rachelsklar NYC Canucks: Check Empire State Bldg tonight – gonna be RED & WHITE for Canada Day! #
  • FUCK U Mrs Gov. Sanford: “Our marriage was perfect until these [gay marriage] laws started passing around the country.” #
  • Btw, that last tweet was a joke from a SC joke site…not to give you a coronary. #
  • Apologies to everyone…the second tweet went through too slow to make sense with the first tweet…it was a joke site. #
  • RT @bhoggard: Washington Post RIP via @GregMitch #
  • RT @TylerGreenDC: Clear sign of depth of troubles at Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, They’re now open only 4 days of week. #
  • Just saw Ensor show @ MoMA & underwhelmed. He was out of step w his era & probably looks better today than then but lots of mediocre stuff. #
  • [Pictured Above] James Ensor’s best “Skeletons Fighting Over a Pickled Herring” (1891) metaphor of 2 critics tearing apart the artist: #
  • Just saw movie UP & amazed how Pixar can distill any story to its essence. Love that most of the families were ones of choice, not birth. #
