Living in Abu Dhabi has been a great adventure and I have learned a lot about life and teaching, but I will be so glad to get back to the USA. You might be asking Why? With the bad economy, cut throat election, high gas prices, terrible housing market etc... But ordering tings like the Task Newsletter (Design Observer has a good review of the project if you were wondering) will be available without paying huge sums of money to ship something halfway around the world with no guarntee that the local postal service will not find it offensive and destroy it or just loose it. I Love the USPS and will never complain again, because it is so much better than anything else in the world.

The American Dream

You have probably guessed from my header that I like baseball. The latest mission from Improv Everywhere was to give a random little league team The Best Game Ever. Jumbo-tron, NBC Sports, program, post-game press conference, autographs and even the Good Year Blimp. This is absolutely amazing and I love it.

While reading the current issue of Eye this story grabbed my attention. A project by Giles Revell and Matt Willey asked people to create self-portraits using an old Photofit kit used by police departments in the 1970's. Studio 8 has the complete project as a PDF download. I highly recommend it.
