Then we went to Bauhaus, which has really sexy interior design, but is looking a little run down around the edges. Which was really the main problem with the actual bauhaus movement. Minimalism does not age well. Unlike Peter Murphy.
Next stop was Lansky Lounge, which has a very very cool entrance and an excellent name. But as S. pointed out, it reeks of a thousand bar mitzvahs.
Tonight, we go to The Screening Room, Yaffa's Tea Room, and possibly Double Happiness.

Bee pointed out some album cover collages by Christian Marclay that were in Elle Magazine this month. Marclay does a lot of other stuff too...like the incredible Video Quartet and long accordion at Paula Cooper Gallery.
I wish I'd seen this show of William Wegman's new paintings at Sperone Westwater last month. First I heard of it was when I saw this painting in Harpers.

1. Tal Bachman's crappy "She's so High". That cute girl with the flight goggles deserves a way better song.
2. No Doubt's old skool "Hella Good" video. Oh Gwen is so adorable, but she'd be better if she were Russian.
3. Some video with this chick in a swimming pool full of writhing supermodels. Goes very well with TAtu's weird cover of "How Soon Is Now".
But none of these can compare to the actual TAtu videos.
TAtu is the very definition of Moscow Fabulous!! Check out their evil interviews with Blender and Q. And this site is extremely funny.

Here are some of the things I am apparently supposed to do in the next 6 months:
1. Order an appropriate number of yarmulkes with our names on them, and the date.
2. Rent-a-Chuppah (1-800-5-JEWISH!)
3. Get a Ketubah. I didn't even know what this was, but I sure do now. And now I need one. These Ketubot are unbelievable beautiful. They are ten times more than I could ever afford.
4. Register for more stuff to put in our apartment. Why do we need more stuff? I mean, it's a pretty small apartment and it's kind of full.
5. Pick a color scheme for the wedding. Huh.
6. Get a manicure.
What I have done:
1. Drew a picture of two cats loudly announcing our impending marriage.
2. Ruined $30 worth of really charming paper by using the wrong kind of printer to print the announcing cats.
3. Ordered a paper eyelet setter so I can make our wedding invitations out of several layers of paper fastened together like this.
4. Photocopied my hand with the engagement ring on it quite a few times
5. Spent $150 on a button maker so I can make crazy numbers of buttons. How this relates to the wedding is a little tenuous, but I am telling you. This is the best $150 I ever spent. I can put anything on a button. I have infinite power.

Later we went to a Tibetan restaurant and I finally got to try the hot tea with butter that I've been so extremely curious about for years. It basically tastes like a puddle of melted butter. Bit of a letdown.
