Poly Styrene R.I.P

It's incredible how much this woman meant to me..her simple but powerful message was that it was OK to be different because everyone is special. Usually people die when they are meant to and I imagine her best work was behind her, it's just that this work she did spoke to all these intelligent misfits like myself in a brash, direct arty and unarty way that has never been duplicated.

Happy Easter

If You Want To Sing Out....

This is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. It distills the teachings of every religion, 12 step program and self help book into two brilliant minutes and 48 delicious seconds. It's a perfect example of my belief in the genius of pop music

Urs Fischer Bear Sculpture

I really like this new piece going up in front of the Seagram building but I can't quite figure out why the bear is impaled by a lamp....any ideas?
