Dec 06 – Art Basel Week

6 Dec

Aside from Halloween, this is my favorite time of year. Art is flooding the city and I feel more inspired than ever to go out and make stuff. Here’s a recap of my visits to Art Basel, Art Miami, Context Miami, Pulse Miami, Perez Art Modern Museum (PAMM) and the Faile and Basche Deluxx Fluxx Interactive Art Arcade.

Dec 03 – Let’s Hug Day

Who can say no to a hug? Right?

Nov 27 – Pins and Needles Day

Celebrating by literally putting pins and needles in my face

Nov 26 – Shopping Reminder Day

26 Nov

TV is filled with them now. People like me making ads to remind people like you to go spend money on things you don’t need instead of celebrating the things that matter: friends and family. But I actually would hate to work on a Black Friday ad. It’s more like Black Plague Friday. As much as I love this ad, I can’t celebrate shopping reminders like this especially when stores are opening on actual Thanksgiving Day. We should be reminding people to talk instead of shop because that 72 inch TV bargain won’t replace a night of sitting around the table trading war stories. 

In fact, this article perfectly sums up my feelings about this ridiculous Black Friday trend.

Oct 31 – Halloween

31 Oct

For my favorite holiday I stepped it up by actually breaking bad throughout the night as an homage to Mr White.

and the rest of my Halloween antics

Oct 24 – Take Back Your Time Day

24 Oct

What if we could take back our time? Freeze a perfect moment and live in it forever? This beautiful film by Mark Slutsky tries to answer that.

In this case and in the case of my favorite movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I always feel like the moral of the story is that everything is everything. Deleted memories or staying frozen in them isn’t what makes us human. Persevering and seeing our growth is what does.
