Critical Mass New York October 2003

Surfing bike sites I came across Time’s Up’s website, the local promoter of Critical Mass. Critical Masses are city wide bike rides that meet once a month in cities around the world. In New York City they meet at 7pm, Union Square North every last Friday of the month, but this month is a little special, it’s a Halloween ride + a dance party afterwards! Wear your creepy costume and come ride! (vision impairing masks not recommended) Remember as their website state: “we [bicyclist] aren’t blocking traffic, We *are* traffic.” — Also For a list of Critical Mass events in your city, check Mike Bluejay’s Critical Mass Directory website, listing locations from Japan to Mexico.

Artforum Sepotemeber 2006- ZidaneSpeaking of catch up reading, here is one issue I might pass on: Artforum’s late and insistent dissection of Zidane’s folly via Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno’s art goggles. I think the rest of the world has moved on to other things. I’m sure the art world will continue to chew the fat on this one for some years to come, ‘the culture of spectacle, there it is again!’. The art world is sometimes so obsessed about the ‘culture of spectacle.’

Rockstar Games table Tennis Screen Shot

Just yesterday a friend of mine unhide his ping-pong table so we could play a couple of games. How he hid it in the first place is a mystery. With the weather being so unpredictable it was a good call to play indoors. He won most games, but I’ve got to admit I hardly broke a sweat. Later that day I came across an email from Dimmak Records promoting Rockstar Games’ Table Tennis tournament here in New York City. I had heard about these huge basement table tennis parlors in Chinatown and figured they went that route and then I remembered… Rockstar Games usually don’t involve any physical effort besides thumb twiddling a-la-shadow-thumbs.

Apparently Rockstar Games have been hosting these semi-private PR tournaments since the start of this month leading upto the day of the release, May 23rd.
