white tiger

ok so this crazy terrifying white tiger gets a post about him, even though this is like old and has been on the interwebz for awhile, i came across the images again and he is so terrifying that it is HILARIOUS. btw, his name is Odin, he's 5 years old, and he lives in a six flags in vallejo, california, and he does this for crowds of people and i am SO JELLLLYBEANNN of them.

balloon dog

so when i went up to go to bamboozle with pat, we woke up that morning and decided that we didnt really want to feel like killing ourselves all day. so instead, i drove to nyc, and we went to the Met. this was a MUCH better choice. one thing that particularly stuck with me was their jeff koons on the roof exhibit - and how impressive it was to see. (i also liked that they had a roof martini bar with themed martinis to go with the works, but we didnt drink, unfortunately.)
along the lines of what we saw there, i even like this one of a giant blue diamond a lot actually, and a green diamond; but not as much as the cracked egg.

in a different medium, or actually combination of incredibly interesting mediums, this puppy is insane, made of stainless steel, wood, soil, geotextile fabric, internal irrigation system, live flowering plants.

also his ethereal work is awesome and i really like how food is worked into it (xtreme fat kid), the shape and texture it adds. he has a lot featured on his website, go look! although his kama sutra stuff where he features himself as a subject is a little odd, like a glass made to look like and ice sculpture where he's eating a vagina, you know, stuff like that, nbd.

i thiiink i'm going to test drive the above tc today, the limited release '08 galactic grey metallic or whatever it is. there were only 2,300 made, that's kewl i suppose. but i am very much considering the black sand pearl, and am general partial to black cars. anyway i'm really excited and i've never gotten to test drive a car myself (as in, i've never been the one physically driving), so that should be interesting. i feel like the weather may get bad though, and that test drives arent really a rain thing. i am pretty much 99% sure i'd like to get the car, i just have to make sure it doesn't drive like a disgusting saturn ion, which ever since having one as a rental has made me fear all cars in its class/range. i don't think it could possibly be that bad, though, i hope it just drives like a nice little toyota. gimme.

awww i saw this on geekologie (article here), poor littles:

look at his face!
also if this is some kind of huge scam like, i dont know, fucking bonzai kittens, then sorry i am dumb.
from the article it was found in:
"In waterfront Qingdao, vendors were selling heart shaped plastic keychains sealed with a live goldfish inside. Since the keychains are completely sealed there is very little air and no way to feed the fish inside.
“The fish would survive just a few hours, and would be lucky to make it from the manufacturers to the point of sale. We are shocked and appalled. It is a gimmick and shows no respect for the animals at all.”
One of the 2008 Olympics mascot HuanHuan was printed on the bag and although it is not an official Olympic item, it just goes to shows a complete lack of respect for all the fish who will die in these keychains."


so yesterday for work, one of the new interns and i accompanied one of our media reps on a quick interview for eyewitness news, on the 'celebration of life' event at jefferson's kimmel cancer center. we had set up a patient who was a cancer survivor - a 43 year old woman who had had a brain tumor/brain cancer, i think along a similar line of what ted kennedy has. she showed up a little late, we had been worried, but when she and her husband got there and were such amazing people it was just incredible. she was 38 when she was diagnosed - no history of it whatsoever in her family, no problems ever before for her. her children are now 10 and 14, meaning they were way young at the time of the actual diagnosis. she was tall and thin with pretty, well styled hair (which is interesting, because for her type of chemo you only lose hair around your surgery scar line, not all of it) she was so nervous about being on camera, since her memory is not what it used to be and she hasnt even worked in years, but once she got on camera she looked so good that people kept stopping and staring, thinking she was a reporter or someone famous. she explained how initially she'd been given a few months or a year to live, different diagnoses from different doctors, and how it had now been 5 years and there were currently no signs of cancer. she was so incredibly strong and well spoken, even though nervous. it was for last night's 6 o'clock news, and was probably turned into like an 8 second clip, but it was really incredible to actually listen to what she had to say. i think she was also going to get up and speak at the event, i should have stayed, but i felt a little small being surrounded by cancer survivors.

also this tiny mean-looking asian woman like, kept trying to lurk her way into the shot, and it was my job to glare at her to make her leave. i am good at such things.

ooh i just got a link to the clip! they shortened it a ton, but its really positive and good. also, from my job standpoint, very successful.
