  1. Love the blog! It’s funny, smart, and easy to read (except for the French, that was a little bit harder). I like all of the topics. Did you by chance read or see the exhibit at the MOMA about Marina Abramovic who did a 3 month live performance piece on the second floor? ww.nytimes.com/2010/05/31/arts/design/31diva.html

    thought you might enjoy this!

    1. Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I know about the piece – I didn’t get the chance to go to NYC to see the piece, but I really love her work in general. She has some really interesting work.
