I Want cAndy

"If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There's nothing behind it."  - AW

If there ever was a day to celebrate the sweetness of superficiality, it would be today.   So, don't feel bad if you shed a tear watching the final episode of the Hills (we all know it's about the cinematography, anyway...) or intently watched the Kardashian of your choice making tuna salad.  A little candy won't hurt you.  Trust me, I'm a dentist. 

Celebrating plasticity, fame and facades, and all things proverbial made new. A very happy birthday to you, Andy. 

That's all, really.

American (Ballet Theatre) Idols

Today in Central Park, 230 ballet dancers stood en pointe for one minute and seven seconds, breaking the previous record of 220 dancers.  Their graceful effort helped raise donations for the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. 
Meanwhile, it took me one minute and seven seconds to retrieve a stubborn eyelash hiding underneath my eyelid. No donations were accepted, but I made a wish. The tutu should be arriving shortly.
