Our family was at the Liberty Science Center a few weeks ago and they were setting AirZookas. These are “air cannons”; they shoot a ball of air at a target/person/butterfly and hilarity ensues with a healthy running start. I must say that they are very accurate, but expensive, so I made one.
Simultaneously the happiest and saddest fortune cookie ever.
Cisco and I took Bridget up to Boston and came back the same day. It’s a 400 mile round trip but we made pretty good time…about 43 seconds.
This is an arty clock in Union Square. The left half tells you the time to 10ths of a second and the right side shows you how much time is left in the day. You can tell it’s art because
a) it highlights the fleeting nature of time and our own mortality and
b) it’s useless, being an hour slow.

Update: who, as it turns out, was the most popular write-in candidate.
Let’s see if I’m going to be sufficiently motivated to keep this updated. I’ll be posting updates on my latest projects (the majority of which I will never finish), funny/odd things that I encounter in NYC (with pictures where available) and observations which at least I find hugely entertaining.
The latest funny thing is that I carried this guy from 65th to 70th street to help him in his effort to be carried the length of Manhattan. He’s making a video of it and I’ve started writing my autobiography in anticipation of the media frenzy.
