...Wendi and I hit Montreal the weekend after Thanksgiving. It was a great trip and we enjoyed an afternoon at the Fine Arts Museum; where a series called "Big Bang" was on exhibit. This exhibition, of Quebecois artists, contained work "reacting" to the permanent collection of the museum. There was some pretty funny pieces and some thought provoking ones as well.

Found: original Interrupt Art Magazine

Found an original and rare red-covered Interrupt Magazine, circa 1999, in a box at my parents house. Mikael Kennedy and I published this collection of our concert photos our second year at Hampshire. Mikael has now gone on to publish several books of his photography. Below it is my first and well-worn copy of the Tao Te Ching, I used to carry around in high school, that I also unearthed in Nelsonville.
