It's great. Methinks the Cap'n has been spending a bit of time on fark.com lately, it's a cliche over there
My cover is blown.

I was lonely [weep]

Not that I spend much time there to pick that up *cough*

Hehe, Capn. Not only do I recognise that picture, but I vaguely remember the origins of it etc.

So in a quirky twist of fate, I did see them last night/this morning*:

Doesn't do anything for me. I'd like it a lot more without the fabric - the length of it looks rather peculiar.

*Not my best picture of it, and I didn't even take a whole lot of post-processing time on that.

My pictures didn't come out as well as Dragonman's - even with the maximum exposure time I can set my camera for.

My personal opinion is that given the number of people sleeping on streets in NYC and the number of children there going to bed hungry, spending $20 million dollars on that should be criminal. If anything, it uglifies the park. The real "art" involved is getting someone to pay that much for construction site leftovers.

"As Christo and Jeanne-Claude have always done for their previous projects, The Gates is entirely financed by the artists through their C.V.J. Corp, (Jeanne-Claude Javacheff, President) with the sale of preparatory studies, drawings, collages, and scale models, earlier works of the fifties and sixties, and original lithographs on other subjects.
...
Christo and Jeanne-Claude have donated the merchandising rights to the charitable foundation NNYN (Nurture New York’s Nature and the Arts) who are sharing the proceeds with The Central Park Conservancy."

I remember hearing about that on Conan, but I wasn't sure as to the details, so I kept my mouth shut....
