There really isn’t a good excuse for not updating my blog, besides I was too busy making things happen. That said: check out Everyhere Logistics! I wrote a post a lot about why you should back us.
Beat back the winter blues with the Daily Do-cember Fun-athon - an advent like calendar that suggests one simple, easy, fun, open-ended and mostly cheap activity each day.
Thank you for being part of Competitive Winter Picnicking! Seeing people having that much fun out side in 30 degree temperatures is really something.
Sunday Jan 19, 2014 from 1-3 PM in Brooklyn, NY – register your team to bring a unique, memorable, delicious picnic to battle other teams (and the elements) to see who can have the “best” picnic!
Waiting For The Man – May 18, 2013 – Anticipation, Secrets, and Seeing If You Can Be The Most Fascinating Person In NYC.
Twenty teams of artists competed to see who could be so interesting that they would be photographed in one of the 10 instant photos of our unwitting photographer/judge.
Meeting of the Minds Aug 21, 2013 – an impromptu event and infiltration for people who are interested but not yet involved
People always ask me to bring them along on events. But, I hesitate to bring along people I haven't worked with before. So, I did a project where everyone was someone I hadn't worked with. SO. MUCH. FUN.
The Mason Project – eating together, while eating apart – A social, distributed way to cook, share and eat for busy people.
A weekly get together where people share meals for the week. Each attendee brings 6 mason jars, all filled with a complete meal. Food is traded, and everyone goes home with a diverse batch of home cooked meals.
Thanks United Purpose for having me speak! Using a reverse panel discussion was an amazing experience. It really allowed me to engage with some bright minds, and get to moderate a great, fast paced conversation. I felt like I was piloting a human computer made of minds!
This Fall has been busy for the Lost Horizon Night Market. Philadelphia held one on Sept 22. This is great write up of the event: http://www.knightarts.org/community/philadelphia/little-berlins-evernever-night-market One of the Philadelphia organizers has promised to bring the event to Portland as well. I’m looking forward to it! It also seems that two LHNM NY veterans took inspiration of the idea to Las Vegas: http://blog.getspeakeasy.com/behind-the-scenes-dusty-rabbit/ Future LHNM’s are also happening in the San Francisco Bay Area on Nov 10, and in NYC on November 17. Of course I can’t tell you anything... Read The Rest →
If you ever get asked to lead a marching band through the streets of New York to meet up with other bands at a marching band festival, I can say with first hand experience, you should do it: http://www.boweryboogie.com/2012/10/marching-with-honk-nyc-in-the-east-village-video/ I got an email that morning asking me to lead Minor Mishap from Austin through the East Village in a confluence of brass bands as part of Honk Fest. There is nothing like the feeling of being followed by a brass band through the city, playing your own soundtrack.
