Thomas has asked me to hump it out today, so here are a couple things that have been plaguing my mind for the past week or so when I would otherwise prefer to be thinking about food or soccer or sex. I should mention that I don’t have a television so I can’t comment on the season finale of Jersey Shore, nor do I intend to see Avatar so there will be no references to indigenous people being saved by a white guilt fantasy
I wanted to say something funny, cool or interesting
but I can’t think of anything, so I’m going to throw out some links which made me think, and maybe they will make you think…
Check out this this sick piece by Josh Keyes-–
Half the money goes to Haiti and you get a nice print, plus that site has lots of other stuff that is mad nice and affordable.
Keyes has a show up right now at Jonathan Levine gallery with Doze Green
a founding member of Rock Steady Crew back in the day
another opening taking place this weekend is Jeff Aerosol being put on the former Ad Hoc Gallery.

Massachusetts you fucked us again. I’m done with you.
Here is a quote from my favorite famous founding father federalist fuck John Adams which goes something like this…
I must study politics and war, that our sons may have liberty to study
mathematics and philosophy. Our sons ought to study mathematics and
philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture,
navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children
a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary,
tapestry and porcelain.
…which makes me realize how spoiled we are and suggests this post is done.
