"Still caught somewhere between the plans and the dreams"

A few nighttime shots of the cherry blossoms and the Washington Monument. Now, if only the spring weather would come back!

A few weekends ago, C. and I went to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. The regular collection is awesome (Piet Mondrian, Henry Moore, David Smith), but we were there to see the Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color and Space exhibit. This was one of the “coolest” art exhibits I’ve ever been to. Some of the installations seemed like something from a trendy nightclub.

Suprasensorial will run until May 13. I highly recommend running/spinning/dancing in Jesus Rafael Soto’s “Blue Penetrable BBL” nylon string installation.

ANOTHER national publication doing a piece on restaurants in Charleston, SC?! By the time I get back there no one’s going to even have a drawl!

The best is when a song is really awesome… but the video is even better.

Everything I ever needed to know about the debt ceiling I learned from the West Wing

There isn’t much in life I love as much as Brian Williams and a good slow jam…

Hare Christmas Maharishi Hunter Stabler

I’m not quite sure how my obsession with Hunter Stabler hasn’t surfaced on tumblr yet, but it is definitely time.
I based an entire semester’s worth of drawings off of his intricate drawings and cut paper works. I even tried my hand at doing this kind of detail work with cut paper for awhile. 
I was most heavily influenced by Hare Christmas Maharishi, and in fact did a series of drawings with architectural elements such as columns and bricks developing a human skull.

I was also super excited to find out that Hunter Stabler looks just like what I’d hoped and has the most awesome beard ever…  http://www.notcot.com/images/2009/04/hunter.jpg
