A Vacuum Of The Unexplained

No, I didn’t watch Obama’s SoTU address last night. And not *just* because I was feeling ill and in bed by 8:30. I’d just rather catch the highlights after the fact rather than have to sit through the whole dog and pony show, and the spin afterward with follow-up responses from idiots like Michele Bachmann (oh, Minnesota, sometimes you embarrass me so).

Five things more interesting than the same-old/same-old of politics:

  • Killer Storks Eat Human Babies (Perhaps)
  • ATP NY is no more. Looks like All Tomorrows Parties is leaving the Catskills behind and headed to the Jersey shore. ATP America presents I’ll Be Your Mirror in Asbury Park. Curated by Portishead & ATP with very special guest Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel) September 30th-October 2nd, 2011
  • Six Word Story Every Day is a pretty neat thing.
  • I’ve known about Art-O-Mat vending machines for a while now (”kerplunking culture since 1997″) but didn’t know until now that we have one of their machines in the Twin Cities. Yet another reason I should get myself to the Chambers Hotel some day. Almost shameful that I’ve never been.
  • Gizmodo posted about the world’s most expensive apartments, just completed in the heart of London ($9.5 million per square meter) and speculated one might as well buy an island instead. But not in Dubai. Because those islands are already sinking into the sea. Now those really are rich people problems.

On the plus side? Either tonight or tomorrow night I’ll be paying a visit to Twin Cities Magic & Costume to procure more props for my Saturday and Monday photo shoots. And this afternoon I am meeting with the curator of the show (that the photo shoots are for). Things are really coming together nicely.

Sam, in a field
