the song might have been by LCD Soundsystem

1. Harper's is beginning to serialize an essay on hipsterism/mobthink by senior editor Bill Wasik. Interview is here.

1. (a) Texas A&M's flash mob was, predictably, a year past the proper time. At a specific and meaning-defying time the mob gathered in front of - ah fuck, the story's right here. Suffice to say, we had fun, and likely naught but Kyle Hale connected the event to the idea of scene-as-art.

2. What else. Yes. We had a horse-drawn carriage for sale at the TSHA auction, and Clayton Williams bought it. Apparently he told our development director that he plans to have it installed in his office.

With monkeys sitting in it.

Monkeys - one male and one female - that he shot in Africa.

Not gorillas, because it's a challenge to pick monkeys out of a tree. Like birds, I assume.

And one of the monkeys poses a problem because his genitals are showing.

Someone in the office asked if I would blog this; I took that to mean I could, and there you have it.

3. Oh, and I caught Herbie Hancock's Miles Davis induction speech. Poignant, insightful, pithy. And before he could give it, he had to enter to fucking "Rockit". Idiots.

I totally remember that flash mob, and thinking for a split second that it was the most amazing thing ever. Especially the part where brad got all nazi-like with the bullhorn.

My favorite part was saying, "Now resumes the Age of Man".
