The Brave New Workshop Saves the Planet; or Yes We Can, but Do We Have To? with Jon and Kristin was lots of fun. An actually funny and clever (and sometimes juvenile) satire/two-act-set-of-related-sketches. I was particularly struck by Kim Jong Il's plans for a doomsday unicorn from his guts. I still snicker at the little soliloquy. (Dudley Riggs)

Went back to the ICA again with Larry to see the Shepard Fairey exhibit again before it closes up. Wow I like his stuff, especially at such huge scale. Reminds me a bit of how Beethoven can take stuff and repurpose and vary and recombine it to make amazing new stuff from fairly simple starting materials.
Went to the New England Aquarium. Was pleasantly surprised -- despite the dark bunker of a building, there's a lot of cool exhibits. I war particularly enthralled by the Giant Ocean Tank, and the penguins were fun, and the jellies mesmerizing.
