All i can say to this is, "AWWWWWWW! So precious!"

Sue Harris was not quite sure how to react to the historic victory of Barack Obama. At an election night party held by the local Republican party in the Texas town of Beaumont, she was briefly lost for words.

"I do not know how I feel," she said. Then she found her voice. "My reaction is: what is America thinking? How could he get hold of the country? I am afraid our way of life is about to change drastically," she said.

Ikea’s homepage recently proposed: "Feel free to take advantage of us." At Postmasters Gallery, the wily Guy Ben-Ner has happily obliged. Last year, without permission, this Israel-born artist, who lives in New York and Berlin -- he ably represented Israel in the 2005 Venice Biennale -- installed himself, his wife and their two cutie-pie kids in Ikea model rooms all over the world. Setting a camcorder on "auto," Ben-Ner filmed his family in a semi-scripted soap opera. Most scenes last until Ikea staff throws everyone out. The result is the bitingly crackpot, politically poignant 18-minute Stealing Beauty.

Sunfood Living: Resource Guide for Global Health

So far reads less like a book on nutrition and more like an inspiring call to action. <3

YouTube i too weird

What's up with the full bleed on the newer YouTube skin? So annoying when using safari since there's not enough contrast with the background applications.

And while i'm at is why is the player window's control's so basic when so many sites which basically amount to rip-offs have way more options like Mofile and Youku. They make it look so easy to watch anything in sepia tones or correct aspect ratios. I guess it's jsut the american way. We like our camera's on auto snapshot and we like our videos to play with no hassles.

Geek Hate?

Great article by Paul Graham that begins trying to figure out why nerds get persecuted in US high schools. In the end he conludes that it is a symptom of our poorly planned school system in general... http://paulgraham.com/nerds.html

Jurassic Parking

Last Monday Went to see Wham City's presentation of "They All Must be Deestroyed: A Jurassic Park Play" at the Market Hotel in Brooklyn. I got some hilarious footage. Unfortunately, I was unaware of myy new camera's LACK of MICROCPHONE. Therefore, it's more of a highlight reel of whatever was visually interesting out of the video I had. Anyway, try to enjoy it. I'm gonan keep my eye on these folks for future shows. It was duh funness
