– SXSW review. Interesting to think performances are the only means of financial sustainability for a band now that albums are near extinct.
– This is unfortunately irrelevant to me.
– Improv Chat Roulette. He needs to do more of these.
– This article is on point in so many ways but also slightly irritatingly stereotyped. My mother doesn’t speak a word of English and I attend my sister’s parent teacher conferences, interpreting for mother, taking on the authoritative role. This program of providing interpreters is super helpful and is a sure way to bridge the communication gap. It only highlights the Asian population which has soared to 70% to Stuyvesant, the much coveted ridiculously competitive public high school, and highlights how students/children are challenged by parents who are OBSESSED with their children striving to be THE BEST, blinded by this idea of turning their children into obsessive math problem solvers. These Asian parents are disillusioned by equating happiness and success to nothing more than pure wealth, straight up neglecting social, physical, and mental growth of their children. Hence these Asian smarty pants are more often than not puny, geeky, anti-social, awkward, and boring. I know plenty established professionals who are Asian, went to the best universities and graduated at the top of their class, own some company or another making shit loads of money and THEY ARE MISERABLE. They don’t know how to interact with their peers without coming off as some social delinquent, they are SO confused by having achieved great success, and not knowing what the next step might possibly be. They’ve been brainwashed to believe this was the top, endlessly striving to be the most successful and drowning in a sea of wealth. And once they reach that top, they are clueless as to how to go forward. It’s the end from there folks. And those special Saturday schools and private academies are all useless money sapping phonies. I worked in them for few years and they are all so deceiving and does little other than creating massive amounts of unproductive pressure. This quote is hysterical and totally inappropriate: “Those trying to solve the frustrating shortage of black and Hispanic students who score high enough on Stuyvesant’s entrance exam might start by taking a look at whatever magic happens in those Chinatown Saturday schools.”
– Visitors react to Marina. I look forward to goosebumping myself.

– Who has time for deep discussions? It would be fun to end every conversation you have with “Is this a deep discussion?” What the hell qualifies a deep conversation? Taking about weather can be profoundly deep, if I say so myself.
– On Ken Price and Josef Albers: “Its overarching theme is that abstraction is reality-based, distilled from lived experience, and actualized through highly personal approaches to process and materials. It’s a lesson in life as much as art.”
– “Reperformance is the new concept, the new idea! Otherwise it will be dead as an art form.” Perhaps performance art be not distinguished in ethical sense from dance, theater, opera, music. The concept is written, and can be performance and number of times.
– Cinema 16 runs an amazing series of events with film and live performance, resurrecting the communal film experience throughout spaces in Brooklyn. They recently had an event at Coco66 which I unfortunately missed, but I would not second guess supporting their kickstarter drive so they can continue to develop their series.
– Is this really his logo? barf.
– I’m sorry I missed the ridiculous but inevitably hysterical Art Handler Olympics.
– Is this for real? This is like me looking for an assistant to enter all the gallery shows I need to see into a excel sheet not paying him/her to do the gruntwork required to blogging and organizing events. hmmm…
– Hipsters on food stamps buying organic ground beef and triple creme. I swear to god some of these well endowed unemployed folks are spoiled brats!

– art21 is looking for freelance bloggers. oooOOoooo. But, does it pay? Question of the day.
