Son of Table-Talk of P.G. for November 3, 2008
I. New Believer is out—the Art Issue! Hooray!
Lawrence Weschler on/with Robert Irwin and David Hockney; Mark Swartz on ; Sheila Heti interviewing Frank Stella; Morgan Meis on the art of the clubhouse; Joshua Cohen on a fake Caravaggio; Michael Marcinkowski on Cavemen (!!!?!?!?!?!?!); epic Hillary Chute interview with Lynda Barry; Jonathan Taylor on the third Twin Tower...in Tulsa; much, much more!
II. The NYT goes to the Bowery for the return of the Homeless Museum:
He said Albert pointed to a pumpkin that was keeping a stack of letters from blowing away and told him, “Twenty-seven years ago I could have drawn this perfectly.”
(Read all of Samantha Topol's Believer piece on the HoMu, from Dec. 2006/Jan. 2007 issue here.)
III. A Flickr set of spirit photography (via L.G. Thos.)
IV. Dizzies Name of the Year™: Ninth place N.Y. marathon women's finalist Dire Tune.
V. Dizzies Lede of the Day (trademark pending):
It’s like being named the outstanding British soldier of 1776.
The trade publication American Banker unveiled its Banker of the Year award last week: It went to Kenneth D. Lewis, chief of Bank of America.
