Totally Want to Be Nancy Pelosi’s Friend and This is Why

Please take the time to watch this video posted by the Speaker of the House, your friend and mine Nancy Pelosi.  The video provides a little insight into her life and thoughts.

I love her and her sense of humor.

“experiment in phenomenology”

While walking in Uptown Saturday night, I spotted this little guy.  Looks like a Banksyknock off.  Oh man, it would be totally awesome if Banksy was in MPLS.  An amazing vacation= visiting Banksy locations . 

Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery?  Andy Warhol mocked popular culture.  Sherri Levine borrowed from Duchamp’s Fountain.  GirlTalkmashes everyone’s work.  Collaboration has potential for really amazing forms of expression.
