Evander Berry Wall, a New York Dude, King of the Dudes

Berry-wall-king-dudes

Sounds like a Dandy to me.  Regardless, King of the Dudes is a great title.

From Wikipedia:

“He is credited for having been the first person in the United States to have worn during a ball, at a time when the tailcoat was still the rule, a white dinner jacket, sent to him by the London tailor Henry Poole & Co “to be worn for a quiet dinner at home or at an evening’s entertainment at a summer resort”. He was immediately ordered off the floor.”

Crappy Taxidermy we like


Stuffed Animals, who doesn’t love them?  You were brought up with fake ones when you were a child, so it makes sense to progress to the real thing when you’re grown up.  Here’s a look at some of our favorites from the site, Crappy Taxidermy.

KFC ran a t-shirt competition, and this is the best America could come up with

kfc-t-shirt-contest-winner

Really America?  The awesome design possibilities with the Colonel and his ‘grilled’ chicken chain are endless.  Even second and third place are boring.  The year free of Grilled chicken should have been enough of a motivator.  Popeye’s, Bojangles, need some help in future marketing?  Get at me.

Barry McGee at The Armory Center for the Arts

barry-mcgee-painting-armory-center-for-arts

Opening as part of the Armory Center For Arts Installations Inside/Out 20th Anniversary Exhibition, Barry McGee has created an off-site installation in the city of Pasadena.

Barry McGee, untitled
2 E. Holly Street, Pasadena
Installation: September 19 – December 31, 2009
Space is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays noon – 5 p.m.

Given his sources in street art, Barry McGee’s temporary work for the exhibition is unusual compared to the normal site of an outdoor painting. The artist chose an unused storefront near the Armory. McGee’s work, covering almost all the walls of the store, is made up of a large number of his complex geometric paintings on thin pieces of wood on which he has done additional painting.

If you have mad hours to kill and want to lightly engage your mind, Nerve.Com’s feature I Did it For Science will do the trick.  They should probably make this into a bathroom reader for efficiencies sake.  May I suggest you read this one first.
