Fool for April

Hey - April Fool, did you read any good articles about the war lately?
Fool: No. Not really.

Appropriate for April Fools day - I'm reading an interview in the latest issue of bomb about Tom Sachs. I love this guy! He created an entire minature car racetrack surrounding Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation and Mies van der Rohe's furniture, a McDonald's restaurant, and 10,000-watt boom box, a ghetto, a modernist art park, a DJ station and had participants do bong hits, drink beer and wager for money. Deeper political implications of driving, modernism and project housing aside, I can't think of a better way to spend a first thursday (in this case, it happened Tuesday nights)... I think this man is the MTV Marcel Duchamp Mac Daddy for the 21st century.
