Nuala: I was walking down the Bowery and afriend told me that the next show at The New Museum was called Youngerthan Jesus. Got it…younger than Jesus when he died at 33 years old. Then, beforegoing to see the show I had a dream… 3 women art professionals, inblack, are sitting behind adesk and there’s a crowd gathered. They tell us that in fact Jesus didnotdie at 33, he died at age 66. Iwoke up thoroughly amused at my subconscious. (Nuala admits to being 38 years old at the time of publishing.)
Namenorg: Does this mean the curators are making a direct comparison between these artists and Jesus? Woah. Didn’t Buddha live till like 80? (Namenorg confesses to being 24 years old and very excited about this show.)
namenorg@escordato yeah, some work is getting drowned out in the museum setting, liked cory arcangel’s piece better on second viewing. namenorgNuala just laughed when I told her that eastern europe is really hip. Nuala Patrick really wants to have a party in here. namenorgMatt keegan’s photo portraits of 22 year olds really capture the transition from youth to adulthood. namenorgHaving trouble locating where the feeling of delight is coming from…something to do with community NualaOverall it’s very playful, kinetic, personal, coherent. namenorgNuala is rolling a cigarette and we’re back on the bowery, talking about ego, marketing and personal spirituality

Wisdom 2.0 If a zen master were sitting next to the chief technical officer of Twitter, what would they talk about? That sounds like a hypothetical overheared at a bar in San Francisco. But this weekend I saw the very thing at Soren Gordhamer's Wisdom 2.0 ...
