Take your risks now, as you grow older you become more fearful and less flexible. And I mean that literally. I hurt my knee this week on the treadmill, and it wasn’t even on.”

Tehching Hsieh

Above:
One Year Performance 1981–1982 (Outdoor Piece)
In his third one year performance piece, from September 26, 1981 through September 26, 1982, Hsieh spent one year outside, not entering buildings or shelter of any sort, including cars, trains, airplanes, boats, or tents. He moved around New York City with a backpack and a sleeping bag.

My Favorite:
One Year Performance 1985–1986 (No Art Piece)
For one year, Hsieh did no art, spoke no art, saw no art, read no art, and did not enter any museum or gallery.

Forget the Fishsticks

My little cousin Alyx graduated from high school last night. The valedictorian gave her speech and I immediately transported back to my own graduation, sitting in the blistering sun, probably the only person in my graduating class who was just so sad to have high school be over. I was that girl. The one who loved high school. But then I graduated and made a mess of my life that summer (Hawaii with 8 girls anyone?) and then moved far far away for four years.

And then you look back and think, what the hell happened to all those people? I coulda sworn I never thought I’d stop talking to the majority of ’em. I mean, shit, my “will” in the school paper was filled with inside jokes and pacts that – back then – were supposed to last forever.  Yeah, high school, what a trip.

I gave Alyx the biggest hug after the graduation, like, guhhh, you’re in for a surprise.

I have little use for the past and rarely think about it.

Happy Birthday

It’s Dylan’s birthday.  I love this photograph of him and Joan Baez.  My favorite song:

Please see from me if her hair hangs long / That’s the way I remember her best

COOL

Agent Anything was created to set up fair trade between two groups of people: college students (aka agents) looking to make a quick buck and busy, hardworking people (aka clients) who don’t have time to complete their daily tasks (aka missions). The client simply posts their mission and how much their willing to pay for its completion and if the agent deems it worthy of their time, they accept. Once the mission is completed, the agent gets paid.

Currently available only in NYC and NJ.

the absurd

The universe and the human mind do not each separately cause the Absurd, but rather, the Absurd arises by the contradictory nature of the two existing simultaneously.
