It was a great honor to host Mr. Daniel Day, aka Dapper Dan, yesterday @themuseumofmodernart. Incredible turnout, most elegant audience ever, great questions, deep conversation. I am happy! Thank you, Adelia, Jelani, KP, Shell, Larry, and all those who helped! #dapperdan #itemsmoma


Happy (90th!!!) birthday to the divine Joan Kron, role model, indomitable journalist now turned filmmaker. Yes, she just switched career. Her first movie--Please, Take My Nose--will be released soon on video. #joankron #pleasetakemynose


Quoting @disegnodaily -- An emoji for 2018, courtesy of the wonderful @sebastianbergne, who responded to Disegno’s brief with an emoji that reflects on a societal tendency to act without proper consideration of the likely effects. "In so many aspects of life today we seem to be making mistakes because we take action with too little consideration of the consequences," says Bergne. "Whether talking about pollution, global warming, electing rogue leaders or Brexit this visualisation of the popular idiom 'Shooting yourself in the foot' seems likely to be useful in 2018."

No matter what Washington does, says, ignores, or destroys, NY, LA, SF, Chicago, Atlanta, Alabama--dozens of states, hundreds of cities, millions of Americans--stand with the world. I wish you a resolute, hopeful, and constructive 2018. (The great beanie is by Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss (2016)).
