Amanda and Richard talked to loads of folks in the Peoria Street area for the 2006-2007 season kick off, maybe even you! Lots of people you know or have heard of get drunk and say embarrassing things! Awesome!

Also, Brian Andrews sets the world straight on how totally fucking stupid Burning Man is. MTV owns you, you sad, sad west-coasters who have more money than imagination, fuck the pre-packaged and throw your own damn party.

Damn, the Touch and Go party was mind blowing.

  1. Dear Brian,
    Don’t think we have ever met but, when and if we do I will shake your hand and buy you a round.
    Burning Man has only evolved into a descriptive i.e “She is very Burning Man” or “it sucked but, they would be into it at Burning Man.” You are a wise man to have saved your stipend for the trip. Go buy yourself something nice.

  2. Since when have we been giving Stipends?

    I thought he got a 3 year old Rand McNally map, a pack of Bubblicious’ Lebron’s Lightning Lemonade gum and a message that said good luck.

  3. Very very very very very nice site the new design is really nice. The audio players are amazing.

    Thank you think you

  4. Highlights for me on the season opener…

    Architech Gallery — Early 20th century drawings by Burnham, Root and others. They also had elevation blueprints of Marshall Field’s on the eve of the changeover to Macy’s.

    Thomas Robertello Gallery — Something in braille written on one wall out of two-way mirror globes from security cameras and the word “Kampf” made up of magnetic ribbons stolen off of the backs of cars.

    Linda Warren — Slipping Glimpser installation reminded me of a project in sculpture class where the object was to create a roller coaster device where a ball bearing would roll through it for a specified length of time, only this was gallery size and with bowling balls. It was cool that they had plenty of Goose Island, brewed just up Fulton Street.

    Speaking of Fulton Street, does anybody remember when they used to drag race on Fulton, before the city would open the fire hydrants on the weekends?

  5. Did everyone have to do that Marble in Motion for a specified length of time project in Sculpture year 1? If so did anyone really get alot out of it? What was your solution?

  6. I didn’t even get that. Bubbalicious would have been nice.

    “I corresponded for bad at spots and all I got was this lousy t -shirt.”

    That’s not a joke. Really, all I’ve gotten is a T-shirt. (Although it’s not that lousy.)

    It’s all about the love people.

    Brian

  7. “Did everyone have to do that Marble in Motion for a specified length of time project in Sculpture year 1? If so did anyone really get alot out of it? What was your solution?”

    Yes. We were given a specific area dimension that the sculpture fit within and a length of time that the marble had to take to get through the device. Through a series of roller coaster-type chutes, elevators and anything else one could think of, the time had to be exact. The materials were balsa wood as these were relatively small.

    The project was more or less an introduction to using engineering and the importance of craft. This meant planning it all out before actually doing the work and making sure tolerances were adhered to. One could find an aesthetic beauty in a well-crafted and engineered device.

    I don’t think that anyone succeeded in meeting the time requirement. I believe most were too fast, while in at least one case, the ball got stuck in the middle.

  8. I did the same project as a first year also and thought it was so odd that I never imagined that it would be a universal lesson plan.

    My solution was to put the marble in a casket and show the marble via a series of mirrors which would pivot and make the image on the final mirror appear to look as if it was moving for the specified 60 seconds.

    I just never imagined anyone else would go through a project like that willingly hahaha.

  9. That’s really cool!

    Mine, like the rest of them was a roller coaster. I think mine took about half the required time. I can’t remember how we were graded since everyone failed, some sort of curve, I guess.

  10. Will the real Jeanne Dunning please step forward!
