1. Sue and I were walking to the fancy Marie Calendars restaurant to have a delicious lunch before going to the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA) when I mentioned to her that, “Gee, it really smells like tar out here.” She then pointed out that we were, in fact, walking directly across the street from The La Brea Tar Pits. Funny! But seriously, that shit smells like tar.
2. You know, I was all ready to slag Jeff Koons over his sculpture that looks like he just inflated a kid’s pool toy and crammed it through the rungs of a cheap aluminum ladder that he bought at Home Depot. But then it was explained to me that the pool toy is actually meticulously crafted out of Stainless Steele and painted to look like an inflated pool toy. So, snaps for Jeff Koons, because who thinks of doing stuff like that? And how about that giant balloon dog sculpture the size of a house? Fuck, that was rad.
