whos ready for more fun with the annoying shithead plumber? the kitchen drain pipe from my upstairs neighbors sink has sprung a leak somewhere between apartments (probably in mine) and is leaking inside the wall. so this one wont be an easy fix. not looking forward to it.
Although the White and Black Paintings qualify as monochromes, in other respects they are opposed. Applied with rollers on panels, the Whites have little inflection, and Rauschenberg said they could be repainted, even remade (as some were in 1965 and 1968), while the Blacks have almost too much texture: built up of newspaper strips dipped in paint, glued to canvas, then coated with more paint, they appear worn and fragile, and some show a range of colour and tone too. The Whites appear pristine, empty, flat and serial; the Blacks look rough, full, encrusted and singular. This makes the Whites seem porous to the world and the Blacks closed to it, which is largely how they were received. In keeping with his own desire to suppress authorship and to invite indeterminacy, John Cage called the White Paintings ‘airports’ for ambient accidents of light, shadow and dust. ‘If one were sensitive enough that you could read [them],’ Rauschenberg added, ‘you would know how many people were in the room, what time it was, and what the weather was like outside.’ For their part the Black Paintings insist on objecthood in ways that go beyond ravaged surfaces; tacked directly to supports, they were presented without frames, and Rauschenberg often photographed them among everyday things. As the curator Walter Hopps commented, they also underscore ‘the fact of a new urban surface’.

interesting article on Steve Bannon
Either you already know, or more likely, you don't care about such things, but I'm amazed to be watching what is apparently an actual show (and not just some drug fueled nightmare,) Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party. Yes, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. Throwing a dinner party. This episode feature Seth Rogan and Wiz Khalifa as guests. They are making fried chicken. I'm sure there are crazier things in the world, but wow. This episode started with Martha and Snoop in a faux bed with Snoop saying "I'm not high right now, but whoever gave us this show must have been."

Take a peak outside tomorrow morning at 6:00am (eastern) for the largest (i.e., closest) super moon since 1948. You won't see a comparable one until 2034. (Yeah, okay, 6:00am is just the absolute closest time, but it won't really matter to the naked eye exactly when you see it starting, oh, about now....)

not sure but i think it might be baby having time at my upstairs neighbors apartment in a birthing tub about 10' above my bed. hearing what i imagine to be the occasional yelp along with an unusual amount of scurrying. my only question is what will be delivered first -- the baby or my fresh direct order? only one is guaranteed by noon. your move, baby.
