So there I was, trying to figure out advanced Excel syntax under a time crunch. If that is your idea of fun, you’re probably a billionaire by now. I was not having fun. All of a sudden, an oasis of inspiration appeared: Chandoo! No man has loved Microsoft Excel more truly or deeply than Chandoo. He is a capable teacher. Chandoo has written a great Excel formula e-book. It has one of the...

Plastic silverware & Solo cups
Every day is a party with plastic silverware and cups. I haven’t bought any silverware since I moved into my no-dishwasher apartment 7 months ago. I bought some glasses but I don’t use them. Solo cups are easier and more fun.
Jadakiss - We Gon’ Make It, 2001
Wyeth showroom in Wainscott, NY. This place is serious, hundreds of “museum quality” pieces. The woman asked me to stop taking pictures, kept declining to tell me what anything cost, and failed to laugh at any of my jokes. But there was a great dude there who was able to look at random pictures of chairs that I had taken and tell me who designed the pictured chair. Recommended.
Don't Hate The Player...
I was thinking today about the phrase “love the sinner, hate the sin” which I associate with Jesus and had assumed he said. ……..it does sound kinda similar the saying “don’t hate the player, hate the game” which I associate with rap. “Don’t hate the player…” was indeed first introduced as an Ice-T lyric. But “love the...
I don’t even really like the Rolling Stones but I highly recommend this book.
Sisal, Cardboard, Hydrangeas, etc.
A beautiful museum in LA. I went with college friend and LA denizen Tony. This photo was taken on Sunday right before I went to the airport. On Monday Tony got appendicitis (for real), that’s how hard we rocked LA.
(Bought it, didn’t make it.)
Outside the moFone factory in LA.
I was in LA and joined the assembly line to help my college friend Morrisa fulfill her moFone order for Nordstrom’s and Urban Outfitters. If you went to college with me and remember Morissa’s original moFone, you will enjoy this even more.
At the Getty Museum in LA.
Dan Flavin’s “the nominal three (to William of Ockham)” “In a letter to artist Mel Bochner, Flavin explains the reference: On this sheet, I enclose lovely tempering aphorism which has been with me for a few years. ‘Entia non multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.’ ‘Principles [entities] should not be multiplied unecessarily.’ Of course, it is ‘Ockham’s...
Dan Flavin’s “the nominal three (to William of Ockham)” In this installation, Flavin reinforces Ockham’s proposition by using only the minimum number of ordinary fluorescent fixtures needed to establish a series, that is (1) (1+1) (1+1+1).
Dan Flavin’s “the nominal three (to William of Ockham)”
To quote Wikipedia: Occam’s razor (or Ockham’s razor) often expressed in Latin as thelex parsimoniae, translating to law of parsimony, law of economy or law of succinctness, is a principle that generally recommends, when faced with competing hypotheses that are equal in other respects, selecting the one that makes the fewest new assumptions. I first encountered this term in...

Cam'ron vs. Pharrell
Custom pink Range Rover and matching fur outfit vs. oversize Hermes Birkin bags everywhere. I gotta go with Cam’ron as the champion of brazenly feminine braggadacio. Up and coming rapper Lil’ B recently named his album “I’m Gay” for the explicit purpose of showing that he’s so confident in his masculinity that he can name his album “I’m...
Dan Flavin Museum
I recently visited the Dan Flavin museum in Bridgehampton, NY. It was awesome. These are pictures of a little room that acknowledges the building’s prior use as a church.
