2. Linked Up: William Carlos Williams, Goats, NASA

Yesterday, I tried to start a #mathbattle on Twitter, but it proved too geeky to take. (Go figure.) I was having a nostalgic moment, remembering back in middle school when we had to write date equations. Everyday. Because each day, my friends, is different. A new day, full of new possibilities, opportunities, and numbers. Today is 7/30/2010. That means two things:

1) It will be August very, very soon.
2) We have the numbers 7, 3, 0, 2, 0, 1, 0 to work with. (Or, you can leave out a 2 and a 0. That is the cheater’s way.)

LET’S DO IT! —>     7 – ((3+0)(2 + 0)) = (1 + 0)

Yessssss. Math is awesome. Got a better equation? Prove it. Until then, here are some interesting things.

William Carlos Williams is not a very considerate roommate.

The Bookavore has created an “E-books article drinking game.” (Finally.) (Thank you.)

Ben Zimmer refudiates fake words.

And the best goat calendar of 2011 goes to…

I am sooooo over air quotes.

This baby must be a deep sleeper.

Get your vocab fix here.

This is an awesome new Twitter tool.

These should keep you busy for a while.

And to clarify, I am not a whiner. NASA agrees with me. So there.

3. Sympathy For The Cyclops



This is a painting I did in an old Chester drawer I found on the streets of Brooklyn years ago. Just painted it for a show coming up in Santa Monica at The Robert Berman Gallery in April. It's a group show called "Sideshow" and has other artists like Gary Panter in it. I'll try to post more paintings as I get them shot to see what you all think. The next one is about a Morlock and an Eloi. 2 characters from H.G. Wells' The Time Machine
