Germs

1. Favorite bosses of all time (Mutoid Man, the hammer-and-sickle wielding 'collective' from Strider, Krang from TMNT)

2. Time attacks

3. Time attacks / mathematical beauty

4. Everything is art but asking what is art / what is good art still interesting, why? (because someone has to decide what goes in museums)

5. New Yorker on Olafur Eliason; first response = middle finger, second is thinking about roles of a critic, finally 'mature' stance that maybe they have a point. Is interior design art? Must things be difficult, must the soul be tortured and starving?

6. Rejection letters

7. V.S. Naipaul - Amongst the Believers
