Matt is awesome, Onward! His website
is very cool and I have a signed copy of his book, which is a great read.
Anytime I watch his video--the original with some explanation is here
Where The Hell Is Matt?
I always smile.

Katy Perry and Elmo? Apparently, the relationship didn't work out so well...

Purron, I think that is so funny that Sesame Street pulled the episode, but left the video on youtube.
She is wearing a top in the video, but let's face it, those bazookas of hers would be hanging out of anything short of a burka! I kinda like Katy Perry, even if she sings bubblegum pop.

Awesome! Can't wait to show my daughters. They seem to be the target demographic for Katy Perry and Sesame Street.

Maybe this video is a marketing ploy to get more stay at home dads to tune in to Sesame Street every day?

Since it was a woman* driving it, I would check to make sure the car had some gas in the gas tank. Sometimes seemingly big problems have simple solutions.

* DW left me her car to drive to work and drop the kids off this morning. With no gas. Luckily I had half a gallon for the lawn mower in my shed and made it to a gas station. No bitterness here...

Artist John Riepenhoff and pizza chef Jason Todd made the above work entitled “Physical Pizza Networking Theory.” In an interview about it, Riepenhoff said:

Quote:
Physical Pizza Networking Theory is meant to address the ontology of the social as material in art. Using mise en abyme to illuminate a relationship between the layers of material and our experience, and meta symbolic experience of pizza as a hearth, as meeting point, as cultural convergence, as party, as sculpture, as gift, as collage, as pie, and individuals as ingredients within pieces of a social pie adding up to something greater than their whole in a deliciously simple way. This work of art celebrates the event and temporal moments of art-as-happening, document, and experience. Take a slice, be a part of Physical Pizza Networking Theory.

Yes, but does it taste good? Can a work of art be consumable? If you can eat it, is it art, or craft?

I have to link to the article, since the organization (1010global.org) is desperately trying to get this back off the internet. I thought it was a parody, but it was serious!

If I could eat it, I would call it "food".

Like you have asked, the real question is whether it is good food...
