Avant-Garde Dating is a new experimental dating service for artists. Very experimental. Hosted by Wooloo, an artists-run organization based in Berlin, it’s not for actually for dating at all, but exists soley to host a competition exploring issues associated with relationships. To apply, artists must explain how they will pry at the sticky conventions of monogamous love, challenge the very idea of artistic collaboration and/or explore one of the other diverse stereotypes of human pairing. Based on the applications, a Dating Board will pair artists off with each other, then later judge the “winners”, as three of these couples will be later awarded a one week exhibition during the Art Forum in Berlin to “further explore the concept of human partnering.” No, I am not applying.

Not sure how I missed this back in September: US shocked to learn that world’s longest undefended border is long, undefended.

Next up, water is wet, fire burns, and TSA agents are sadistic semi-fascist pod people.

Which reminds me, I’m going to need to get my passport soon. Very soon. Anyone interested in having thier picture taken? Nice portraits for cheap.
