The EMP in Seattle? 


I used to live in Seattle and I can say that I have never seen a building even close to how ugly this building is. It would make me angry to see it. His building design is ugly enough but it has so many ugly, clashing colors. To those who say 'that's the point. this is art. deal with it.' I say take that art and keep it in your city or your home. Do not pollute a beautiful, landmark park with your ugly, confrontational art. Go see Funny Games and Damien Hirch's art and let those of us who enjoy things have a park.

Imagine that in 3,000 years archeologists are excavating this area and are chiseling away into this fossilized building. How long into the digging do you think they would go until they realized that it was an organized structure and not the accidental collapse they thought it was?

I doubt most of that material will last even 50 years. I was surprised at how poor the joints were at the Diznee Concert Hall in LA.

or wasting valuable scholarship money on people with frivolous majors like art

Or pissing it away on sports teams.
Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

First of all, how dare you?

Second of all, how dare you.

Third of all (to Eric mostly) to those who would say "It's art, deal with it" you can always say "It's not good art though". 

Fourth of all, I knew one of Gehry's sons in college and he was a huge Toy Dolls fan.  In fact, the only Toy Dolls fan I have ever met.

Oh, Junk, come on, that was (I thought) obviously facetious. I was responding to Erika; "artsy dorm designs" have their place (Aalto's Baker House at MIT comes to mind).

First of all... okay.

I figured, Josh, but I was sort of experimenting with righteous indignation.

Consider my ire raised and lowered. GOOD DAY SIR!

I like that. It looks like any average dorm, but warped.

That dorm looks like someone left it in the car on a hot day.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

Nice. Finally the NYT has the balls to take on the fashion choices of a 14 year-old.

Honestly? | Ali Lohan Channeling Blair Waldorf

Imagine my surprise — while watching the season premier of E!’s reality show, “Living Lohan,” Blair Waldorf (my favorite “Gossip Girl” character) made a cameo. Only it wasn’t Blair. It was Ali Lohan, Lindsay’s 14-year-old sister, dressed up in Blair drag for her on-camera interview segments. It was full-blown fashion plagiarism, right down to the plaid headband. What would Blair say? Probably: “Nice try, Little Lo. Too bad you can’t style away your Long Island accent.”

I wish they would discuss Ali's persistent gas face.



That broad does not look 14. SCARY.
