Wild and Untamed Things

So, hair.  Why is Issac Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation, what goes up must come down, accepted unequivocally?  Ok, fine.  Gravity.  But has anyone sought to challenge that theory?

More than 2oo years later, Albert Einstein would find flaws in Newton's theory on a couple of fronts, but my question is, could Einstein's hair have proven Newton wrong altogether?
Did Einstein's hair challenge some basic laws of gravity?
Would Newton have been threatened by Einstein's hair?
Has anyone ever seen a photo of Einstein with a slick do?

I'm tackling my platitudes one theory at a time, people.

Randy James & Famous

I told Randy he has good posture.  He thought that was strange.  People tell him different.  Either I'm a bad judge of posture or Randy has good posture.  I think it's the latter.

Randy is a poet from Los Angeles, with good posture and on occasion can be found near Prince Street, standing in partial sunlight.

Kehinde Wiley's Closing Party for Black Light,
Deitch Projects, September 26th:

Ok.  I realize I'm late in posting this one...let's say... for reasons having to do with a counterintuitive, insular time construct, primarily non-linear in nature.  Look, I never said it had to be October.

Here is a consoling thought to keep in mind when running late:  beginnings and endings are one and the same, with exceptions being the gallery world and chess perhaps.

If there's no beginning, then there's no end, in which case, you've never been late for anything, nor will you ever be again.  Or you can always hop a cab; this is New York City.

"Totin' techs..."

Totin' the project hallways...
                                           -- Christopher Wallace (1972-1997)

Texting in the corridor of Deitch Projects:
Is it a fashion statement?
If you look good while doing it, then...maybe.
If you wear a fur-lined collar while doing it, you're an installation piece...and also fashionable.
If you walk into a wall while doing it, it'd very likely be more embarrassing than painful and perhaps also an installation piece.

Eddie and The Quiet Type

In a previous post I hypothesized that Louis XIV's shoes had to have matched  his furniture and you thought I was crazy.  Or let's assume you thought I was crazy.  Now, entertain the theory for a moment and imagine another world.  A parallel universe, the West Coast or Uptown.  Now imagine that within this world there are people, a countless number of people, wearing things that match things they're not wearing.
