And if you love Kara Walker you can now own a vase priced at $400 at MOMA’s gift shop. Personally I would be afraid to own one for fear of dropping it.

And the Whitney Biennial has again given us an interesting part of LGBT history woven in with high art:

It’s what I’ve been talking about all along. I truly believe within the next 100 years (if we don’t destroy the planet entirely), we as a community will eventually erase all differences. It’s just a matter of time before we melt into one. If you have been reading my other blog Greetings From Karpland, you will soon find out what is in store for all of us. This may sound weird but if you give it any thought at all, you may be in agreement. That’s if modern medicine doesn’t prolong our lives into the next century. If so then according to our health care system, only the rich will be able to do so.

But I’m sure you would have not been able find this item way back when. This is a really cool look at SF’s shopping malls of the past:

Recently I was contacted by Nha Thuyen the creator of two really nice video poems:

Since they are not collaborations, I can’t include them in my column for Moving Poems. However they are very cool.

Stay tuned…
