its monday tomorrow why does this keep happening
Just told a coworker that I bought plane tickets for Iceland and Berlin (excitement!) and his response was to suggest that we bought tickets for too far in advance and likely paid too much. RUDE. So fucking rude.

NYT: What books are you embarrassed not to have read yet?
TEJU COLE: I have not read most of the big 19th — century novels that people consider “essential,” nor most of the 20th-century ones for that matter. But this does not embarrass me. There are many films to see, many friends to visit, many walks to take, many playlists to assemble and many favorite books to reread. Life’s too short for anxious score-keeping. Also, my grandmother is illiterate, and she’s one of the best people I know. Reading is a deep personal consolation for me, but other things console, too.

Ben Sisto: Used Books
March 7 - 16, 2014
Opening reception: Friday March 7, 2014 7 - 10 PM
Opening hours: Sat March 8, Sun March 9, Sat March 15, Sun March 16, 2014. 10 AM - 6 PM
Good Work Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Ben Sisto.
Taking nods from Conceptualism, and with a fondness for free culture and secondary markets, Ben Sisto’s work cuts —sometimes literally— through years of canonical figures from art history up to the present. The punningly descriptive title Used Books explains both the collected works’ methodology and sources: all materials on display have been purchased second-hand via online retailers (Alibris, Abe Books, etc) and local shops (The Strand, Book Thug Nation, Spoonbill & Sugartown, etc).
