Okay, check this: the Utrecht Coupon, for 20% off a single item through February 29. Guaranteed to be accepted online and at the Miami store. We've sent out word to other stores too and we hope they'll go along with it.

Immaculate Heart College Art Department Rules. "The only rule is work." (Kottke)

Bostonians commemorate January 31, 2007.

"His story has been mostly ignored in North America because journalists here fail to see it as a saga of British craftsmanship and enterprise performing in a world where these qualities are insufficiently appreciated." (AJ)

Butcher, artist. (Reddit)

"Buddhist images painted in the central Afghan region, dating back to around 650 AD, are the earliest examples of oil used in art history, says Yoko Taniguchi, an expert at Japan's National Research Institute for Cultural Properties." (AJ)

Department of Skills: Fluid.

Ooooh, I love Utrecht, even though I hardly belong there (maybe I was an artist in another life?). Still, I'll find some reason to use the coupon. Thanks, Franklin.

The only rule is work? Not if you can hire others to do the work for you. I mean, who are you going to emulate, some obscure nun or Hirst and Koons? Please, get with it.

I am monumentally sick and tired of "your browser does not support..." I can't play youtube any more because I need an updated flash player, and to get the updated flash player you have to go to a page of incomprehensible jargon which seems to amount to "you will never be able to play Youtube and plenty other interesting site ever again."

I have downloaded everything they have. Our techie is at a loss. Irritating!! It's like saying you can't drive on certain roads unless you buy a new car. Don't they realize we are not all geeks? And how does it even benefit them?? Why not just MAKE IT WORK???

Opie, which browser are you using? You can download Firefox for free, it's a good browser.

Thanks for the coupon, Franklin. I'l likely use it if it doesn't expire soon.
