A giant box arrived at my doorstep today, return address: Converse. I opened it up to find a pair of Dwayne Wade 4′s and a pair of Elton Brand 1′s! Oh and matching t-shirts! This site might not be making me rich but stuff like this is nice. Thank you to all the great people over at Converse! PS – If anyone over at Blackberry wants to send over a Blackberry Bold I’ll take good care of it! (worth a try)
Finally! A blog combining two of my favourite things – no, not homemade spaghetti and cleaning my ears with q-tips – this one’s about art galleries and jumping!
Allison Reimus, creator of JumpingInArtMuseums has been inviting people to send in photos of their jumps for her site and now she is taking it a step further. Next Monday (December 8th). 6:30 PM. MoMA. There will be an organized art jump! So all you New Yorkers get out there – the meeting spot is in front of the Pipilotti Rist exhibit.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who participated and to all of you who came out in record numbers to vote. You guys really made this project a lot of fun, stay tuned for Project #5, it’s gonna be another fun one!
This weekend my friend Terri (The Conveyor Belt) and I were asked to speak on the topic of blogging, at the University of British Columbia! It was actually pretty fun to share the little bit I’ve learned so far, running this site. The best part is we were paid in my second favourite currency: Beer (second only to diamonds).
After I spoke, someone stood up and said “Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.” I thought that was a little rude, maybe that’s just me.
