First off, Husbandman and I are watching Seinfeld's series called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Our favorite episode so far is with Brian Regan. I never heard of Brian Regan before, but now he's one of my best friends. The premise of this show is a good one, but where are the women comedians, Jer?
Nextly, there's a new exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery called American Cool, with portraits of the 100 coolest Americans. The curators used 4 points to determine coolitude, which I will now share with you via a bulleted list:
- Original work with distinctive style
- Rebelliousness, or transgressiveness
- Icon status
- Cultural Legacy
You only need to have 3 of the 4 to be in the exhibit, and I've decided I have 1, 2, and 4 and am, thusly, cool.
And last but not least, there is a problem with a creative installation by Tony Matelli over at Wellesley College. Some of the peeps don't like Matelli's sculpture, called Sleepwalker. I think it's okay, so it stays, Wellesley.
It's a wrap. Thursday Creativity Share.
