bicycle diaries

back during the convention, on the night of the critical mass bike ride, i ran into this guy who used to live in my building. he's an illustrator named marcellus. we were biking beside each other for a few blocks on fifth avenue. i was saying how it was my first time doing critical mass, but i was digging it so far. we separated after a while, and it wasn't too long after that that the cops showed up and things got ugly.

a week later i ran into him on essex street, and i was all, "did you manage to dodge the police?" i was teasing, but he said, "actually, no. i got arrested." the cops were still holding his bike. i was so shocked i didn't even know what to say. later my friend rachael told me he was illustrating his story, and sent me some of the drawings. now they're up on nerve and you can see them here.

word up: the large and the small

i have a deep, undying love for the dictionary. at home i have merriam-webster and merriam-webster's collegiate. at work i generally use merriam-webster online, which is brilliant for several reasons. for starters: the new words they've added to the collegiate editon include teensploitation and pleather. what could be better?

wait. don't answer that. because i'll tell you what's better: having the m-w robot pronounce these words for you. if you're feeling snarky and superior, get it to say the word callipygian. feeling juvenile? click here.

the one word everyone should get to know, and not just because gawker uses it all the time, is schadenfreude. it's basically the god we all pray to these days. isn't that right, ashlee simpson?

in other news, hearts broke in my world today when it was reported that the incredibly talented peter dinklage got engaged. and neither to me, nor my sister. *sigh* i won't even get to see him in richard III, because it is freakin' sold out.

gloomy bear

on a recent trip to kid robot i adopted a gloomy bear. he is in the form of a keychain, adorable and pink, with blood dripping from his mouth and claws.

the story behind gloomy bear is simple: he was a cute abandoned cub. a boy found him, took him home and raised him. the cub grew up into a bear and gruesomely attacked the boy. end of story.

for some reason, i just love how the bear is all girly pink but with bloody lil' paws. it's like a gangsta hello kitty. kawaii!!! as the japanese girls would say.

the beast of east texas

my sister sent me a story about a "beast" that was killed in texas.

the locals were freaked out:

"What is that?" are the first words out of anyone's mouth when shown photos of the animal, according to Stacy Womack. "It's not a dog," she said. "I'd bet my lottery ticket on that."

is it some sort of coyote/stray dog mix? is it a poor, old, lost mexican hairless? or is it the famous chupacabra?

what is it?

what is it?

oh man. remember the fabulous event i went to at the airport? looks like the party at terminal 5 was a little too much fun: the exhibit was shut down. here's what our friend the new york times says:

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has shut down an art exhibition in Terminal 5 of Kennedy Airport after a raucous opening-night party on Friday that left broken glass on the floor, graffiti on the walls and further destruction in its wake, the agency said yesterday.

Pasquale DiFulco, a spokesman for the Port Authority, which operates the airport, said the curator of the show, Rachel K. Ward, had "failed to control the unlawful behavior of her guests" at the event. "We pulled the permit because the curator violated her agreement," he said.

Besides smoking in the building and defacing the walls with graffiti, some guests broke a door leading to a runway, Mr. DiFulco said. Liquor was being sold at the party without a permit, he added, and Ms. Ward failed to maintain the space to "an acceptable level of cleanliness." Vomit and broken glass were on the terminal's floor, he said.

Ms. Ward, who acknowledged that the crowd had exceeded her expectations - hundreds of people showed up - said she ended the party around 11 p.m., an hour earlier than planned.

chronicles of life and death

last night i went to the good charlotte AOL broadband show. got to see my homie josh and his double C chanel logo tattooed self. i have to say, i really like the new album, especially the cure-esque song "world is black." celeb sighting: brett scallions from fuel. i don't know much about the band, but brett is hott.

as for my toe injury, ever since the doctor removed my toenail, it's been looking really scary. if you don't like gore, then for the love of god do not click here.

egads! totally disgusting, right? feast your eyes on the adorable GC boys and try to think happy thoughts.

good charlotte

attention passengers

friday night there was an art opening at the gorgeous, Eero Saarinen - designed former TWA building terminal 5. it was one of the most fantastic parties i've ever been to, in a space that, after 40 years, still has the ability to stun and amaze. i just wish there'd been some tulip chairs there as well. partying in an airport is highly recommended. hanging out at baggage claim, watching the moon rise over the tarmac... must do it again.
