It’s been a busy week on Instagram. First, there was the influx of Android users. Then came the news of Facebook’s $1billion acquisition of Instagram. [Here’s a good counterpoint]. We also had the Easter and Passover holidays (which are always good for a photo-op or two). This week, we go around the world in museums: One man’s amazing toy art collection readies itself to occupy a museum in Berlin, Kraftwerk plays a series of sold-out shows at MOMA in New York, and a couple of jesters make an appearance at MOMA in San Francisco. As usual, there’s also great cat pics, excellent toy pics, a brand new BABY, and a bonus dog wearing a yarmulke.
Have a great weekend, and you can always find my Instagram Roundups from weeks gone by right here.
Click through; there’s lots more ahead!
(You might remember the very pregnant, hammer-wielding gallery owner from this pic during the EARTH MOVEMENT installation.) So happy for the new family!
You can find the entirety of the Hunter S. Thompson quote (and some more of my meanderings) in this blog post. Or click here to go to Instagram where @luluamy encourages me to get out my red pen and @ryanwheelbarrow points out: “Grammar: The difference between knowing your shit and knowing you’re shit.”
I asked her about it, because sometimes when I’m in a thrift shop, antique store or estate sale, I experience a sort of sadness. I start to think about how this collection was once loved by a collector somewhere, and I wonder what happened to the collector. Here’s Faythe: “@jeremyriad I didn’t feel sad this time but have felt sad about other stuff. In the past. I have mixed feelings about it all, I mean we all die- I think about keeping my stuff manageable so whatever lucky person has to deal with it won’t feel insane. I just hope people end up with things that appreciate them.” I wonder if she bought some of those unicorns though!
