Did you ever play Wil Wright’s computer game The Sims? In the earliest versions, the little folks (who speak a language called “Simmish”) would say something that sounded like “me tyuhd!” and clutch at their heads whenever they needed you to send them to bed. That’s how I feel right now: tyuhd. So here’s a mini roundup of what’s caught my eye lately. Nighty night.
*Designer/artist Anna Schwamborn makes objects from, um, bits of her deceased relatives. It’s actually quite beautiful.
*Social media artist @platea blogs at Art 21.

*The name isn’t the only thing that’s changing: Sears Tower going green (The Post Family).

*House of Representatives approves additional funding for NEA and NEH.
