The Central European Bureau, “EuroShark” Mark Staff Brandl and his new partner Lamis El Farra interview Alex Meszmer of the art team Meszmer/Müller.

Meszmer discusses the exhibition they curated at Projektraum Exex titled “Deconstructing Eden – Fragments of a Perfect Life,” their transitory museum-in-progress called Zeitgarten, the Swiss professional artists’ organization Visarte, and the new group of highly active “alternative” art spaces in Switzerland united under the rubric “Off-Off.”

Terri and Joanna give their book review of Eeee Eee Eeeee by Tao Lin . The “shitty drawing of novels.”

Duncan rages about how F-ing angry he is at the Art Institute of Chicago, and in order to make up for it, rumor has it that he intends to increase his donation to them. If you work in development, please make a note of Duncan’s generosity and contact me at badatsports@gmail.com and I’ll pass along his phone number. He really wants to talk to you ASAP.

Powerthirst will keep you from being Bad at Sports
Tired of being “Bad at Sports”?

Well if so, thanks to the power of sciences and the interweb you now can consume Powerthirstâ„¢.

With this beverage you can topple tall things that were previously….. untoppable, and have many male babies. Untoppable male babies with guns for arms.

Just listen to this commercial (written by comedian Mark Little) and see what Powerthirstâ„¢ can do for you. With thousands of satisfied customers and Richard Holland with son Max as spokesmen you shouldn’t wait to get some.

If the local Mart is closed just bust a window, they understand cause it is Powerthirstâ„¢.

Hell you would be the third person this week alone.

The Best Art School Building Ever
The Ultimate Art School Building wasn’t built in NYC of course (space issues) or Chicago (would have to be built with cut stone) or Kansas City even (doesn’t have fountains in the design) no the Ultimate Art School building was built in none other then the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

The School of Art, Design and Media a 5-story facility nestled in the corner of the campus with a forest to it’s back blends the heart shaped grass and glass building amazingly with the surroundings, gives a relaxing cool demeanor and most importantly is now the best place in the world to play hacky sack (aka footbag).

Feel free to post photos of your Art & Design building (or barracks as the case may be).
