The Gates (they spent how much?!?)

Sam dragged me out to go see the Gates again last night at around midnight. I suppose they do look better with the snow. Or maybe it was the lack of daylight that made the orange colored metal and fabric 'pop'. Regardless, I still think it's a flop. If you haven't seen it yet, you aren't missing much. The only reason I ever went to go see it in the first place was to see why on earth the Christos would spend $20 million of their own money on this piece.

Anyway, I suppose some good did come out of our late night romp in the park. Mind you this was no romantic walk. We took a jog through some of the paths, took some photos and I ended up feeling sick like I did on Tuesday after snowboarding. Ended up passing out in the car when we went to go pick up Sooran from work to drive her home. That was a terrible night of sleep...

Oh and the Gates is bleh. For real art, check out Super Mario, medium = 3M Post-It notes. Probably didn't even cost a percentage of the Gates' budget.

Update: Words fail me! You MUST check out this segment of the Daily Show and their take on The Gates. BRILLIANT!
