Tilda Swinton Sets Off A Dance Party, Is Totally Awesome (As Usual)

Tilda Swinton, you guys. Is there anyone better? In between laying in boxes at the Museum of Modern Art and starring in David Bowie videos, she starts dance parties. Here she is at Roger Ebert’s Film Festival in Champaign, Illinois, encouraging the audience to get up outta their seats and dance to Barry White’s “You’re the…

Tilda Swinton Naps In Glass Box At MOMA

Our love for Tilda Swinton knows no bounds, which is why we’re prepared to ditch everything the minute we hear the actress has resumed napping in a glass box at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

What The Life Of A Hoarder Looks Like

We all sort of gape in horror at the people on those home organization shows like HGTV’s “Mission: Organization” and TLC’s “Clean Sweep” but sometimes, the overcollection of stuff is no laughing matter. For some, the collection of stuff gets so out of control it becomes a legit compulsion and disease called hoarding. People ca…

Love Vandal: Graffiti Research Lab Shows How It’s Done

Emily and I went to the MoMA a little while ago, and a few people from Graffiti Research Lab were doing their thing on some of the museum’s walls. They use a projector to draw using light. Way cool.
