  • “Better than any net art I’ve ever seen”, reads the email title I received yesterday with the url for yvettesbridalformal.com.  I don’t know if I’d go that far, but certainly, this site is worth a perusal.  I particularly enjoy the embedded mp3s in the red hat section, and the pageant/prom dress page.  Originally via metafilter.
  •  This coming Monday Art Fag City friend Dan Callahan (of the L Magazine, and The House Next Door), will sing Cole Porter songs roughly in the order they were written at the Don’t Tell Mama theatre.   To be honest, I don’t have too much connection to Cole Porter, but since Callahan is a man of great talent, I’m sure he’ll inspire my interest.
  • Brian Stelter at The New York Times takes a look at the work of Chris Hughes on Barack Obama’s campaign.  Hughes, one of the four founding members of facebook currently works full time on the campaign’s new-media strategy, including My.BarackObama.com
  • The New York Times covers photographer Rachel Barrett series documenting Manhattan's newsstands.  Squarely fitting into the cataloging-everything-within-one-category genre of art making, the photographs also coincidently capture a particular kind of newstand about to be eradicated, as the city recently decided to replace the old structures with new ones.   The photographs are okay, but I am growing tired of collection art that seems to have no purpose past the act itself.
  • Gawker covers artist Filip Noterdaeme’s latest project, whereby the artist hands out discount fliers for the Murakami/Louis Vuitton Store currently inside the Brooklyn Museum.  I can’t say this is my favorite project the artist has ever done (see the awesome HOMU).  Despite the ridiculous amount of debate that store seems to have inspired, I don’t have any problem with its location inside the museum, and asking for a discount on retail items when there is none seems like something like people would do on their own.  The prank inspires a shoulder shrug from us.
  • This is sort of amusing:  Someone got a hold of a Chucky Cheese animatronic band and programmed it to play Usher.  The video has 400,000 views, so I guess it’s making the rounds in the blogosphere.

    Yvette’s is a joy. (and yes its killing net art)

    Reminds me of the time someone was describing a tank full of live lobsters that they saw on a trip to the Maritimes. The shells had tiny sea-scapes painted on them and I declared that they were killing installation art.

    I also maintain that Princess Diana’s funeral killed video art.
