NYC Popfest on the Brooklyn Vegan

The lovely Dominick Mastrangelo covered the NYC Popfest for the Brooklyn Vegan last weekend and I helped him out by contributing words for night 3 at the Bell House featuring the Eux Autres, The Secret History, and The Radio Dept. among others. It was a good show, but I was so tired my review came off as pretty blase, especially considering I had to get up very early the next morning. I love shows and bands, but I am realizing that I need to go to less of them. I feel a little bit famous getting to contribute some words to NYC's most notorious music blog and have already generated some snarky comments. Awesome! Please check out my review (and Dominick's lovely photos) here.

Tag, You're It!

I like a workplace that's fun as well as intellectually stimulating and it's always nice when I get tapped on the shoulder to participate in one of our ever expanding and innovative online community projects. This one centers on one of my favorite objects in the collection, the space lander bicycle, and demonstrates how one can "tag" objects in our collection online through the "Tag! You're it" game on the Museum's website. Enjoy!
