DJ Venom at Dnipro
Category: dancing
Last Saturday (e:paul) and I checked out the Tea Party rave at Dnipro.

Not many showed up because of the snow but it was worth it. I don't think I've ever danced so hard in one hour. I also think it was the most sober I've been at a rave, (e:paul) and I split one skunky Polish beer.

Strangely enough, I was listening to DJ Venom's music on youtube today and came across his webshow. It turns out he's the brother of Kim, from Matt and Kim (also awesome).

The other djs' sets were awesome too. We ran into our crazy rave friend Lisa, who gave us a saucer and told us that "the night is going to get saucy"

Rest of NYC
Category: travel
A dumpling place with a C-grade health inspection, 6 hours of marathon crunkness for (e:paul)'s birthday and a nameless Korean friend.

The women's march was happening the Saturday we were down. 9 hours after the protest started, it was still going. (e:hodown) said they had three times the turnout they were expecting. Fuck Trump and his tacky tower.

Down the street from the protest was a Microsoft store with people playing VR in the window.

(e:paul) and (e:hodown) in front of a church. That's evidence to get into heaven if they ever need it.

The Metropolitan Museum
Category:
I think the most impressive building I've ever seen, right in central park. I can't even comprehend the volume and insanity of the exhibits. Although, half the artifices donated by the Rockefellers etc not just spoils of colonialism/war/genocide?

Here's a bike riding delivery squirrel in Brooklyn.

We accidentaly navigated via the subway to Metropolitan, the bar, instead of the Metropolitan, museum. It turns out it's a gay bar. What good SEO though. What if you named your restaurant "restaurant" "food" "lunch"?

Trip to New York
Category: art
Last week we headed down to Brooklyn with (e:uchina) and (e:yesthatcasey), to celebrate Paul getting old (40)!

(e:paul) found a super fance apartment in Prospect Hill. It was my first real time in New York and it looked how I pictured Brooklyn to be like (stately ol' brownstones). It had more than enough room for all of us and was cleaner than our house.

The first day in New York we went to the Mueseum of Modern Art. I have to say I was pretty engaged for the first three floors.

What I liked the most an exhibition on utilitarian modern design from central and northern Europe. They had a plain ass looking model kitchen and everything - no crevices to get dirt or crumbs, everything cleanable metal etc.

It got really meta when they exhibited posters, about exhibitions of American appliances in Germany, again in New York. I think someone should make an exhibit about exhibits of exhibits of modern American appliances for 50 years from now.

I don't know much about art history but I never made a connection between modern art from the early 20th century, and pretty much everything that you see from the early 90's.
