This past Sunday the OYG team decided to spend some good times playing shuffleboard at the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in our neighbor neighborhood the Gowanus area. The place is beautiful! Everything felt like a Wes Anderson movie down to font choice and the live band.
Check out this beautiful bathroom wall situation:
Here is a little breakdown of how to play: Get it inside the lines in order to score. If it all touches a line, nada points! the widest and farthest box is -1o. Watch out!
Here are our VICTORIES!
Tammy the Hammer!
Mary the Piledriver!
Connie the Con Artist!
Here is a good re-enactment!
all in all a great night!!
To celebrate our existence in this futuristic period, and also our survival of blizzard Hercules, here are some Improbable Snowmen created by our very own Matt Shoch.
Tammy AKA DA BOSS AKA DJ REGGAEBABYTOONZ was really nice and went to buy me a sandwich from our favorite sandwich shop, Caputo’s. She and I really like this one sandwich that has bruschetta, mozzarella, asparagas and balsamic vinegar on the amazing bread. Mmmmmmm. Tammy came back and mentioned that she accidentally ordered the “large” instead of medium sized ciabatta. I didn’t know they had large ciabattas…
Well, they don’t. I mean they do but this “large” sandwich was 22 dollars and the size of a baby. It’s impossible to express just how big it was, how big it felt. Here is a full sized bag of chips to compare it to.
HUGE! That’s not your 50 cent bag of bodega chips here, we’re talking big mama 3+ dollar size chips. This was a sandwich to feed an army. This was a sandwich to feed the your tired, your poor, your hungry masses yearning to eat. It’s a sandwich full of hope and wonder.
This was a sandwich that was actually the size of three full sandwiches. 22 bucks split three ways isn’t actually that bad! We saved some money!
Understand though that these thoughts of savings all came later. In that moment of unveiling, we were in complete shock!
We could not and probably can not still to some degree, handle this sandwich.
Look! It even had these things that I have never seen before!
Italian Sweety Drop Peppers. Whaaaat? Did you know these things are real?
After the shock dissipated and the calm came but was quickly smothered by raging hunger, we dove into the sandwich, mouth first.
Yoyoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms are currently on display at the David Zwirner gallery in New York City. Last weekend I waited 4 hours in line to experience I Who Have Arrived In Heaven, which was totally worth it.
But, if you don’t have a lot of time for lines, you might consider making your own Infinity Room at home.
What You’ll Need
1. 2+ mirrors
2. Small lights (string lights, candles, or a Hypnocube will work)
1. Arrange mirrors facing toward each other.
2. Assemble lights in the middle of your mirror setup.
3. Blammo! Infinity room achieved.
4. Take close-up pictures to make it look like it’s bigger than it actually is.
