nyc waterfalls

i am DYING to go see these waterfalls by Olafur Eliasson... he built 4 waterfalls on the river in lower manhattan - including one at the base of the brooklyn bridge...they are up until october, so hopefully i will have time to go see them at some point.... for now, i'm headed down to the beach for vacation with family.... i guess i can settle for an ocean instead of a man-made waterfall on the river... but when i get back, i am definitely planning on doing this bike tour of the falls!...anyone care to join??

ooooh goodie

my favorite icelandic band, Sigur Ros, is coming out with a new album, 
Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust  (which apparently translates into "with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly") - on June 24. But for now, you can listen to the whole thing online here - good stuff!! AND....they are playing a show at MoMa on June 18 in conjunction with the Take Your Time exhibit by Omar Eliasson (a fellow icelander!). it's an amazing exhibit, and they are one of my all-time favorite bands!!... I think it's a pretty well-kept secret, and i can't wait! - that is, if i can get tickets...

p.s. - mom, if you're reading this, sorry for the naked butts in the picture...
