FIRST OF ALL, Ed Baker I wouldn't WANT your filthy corpse in my city! So PLEASE DO die elsewhere!

SECOND, for those coming to the MLA there're some amazing art exhibits VERY NEAR the convention center, one being The Ryan Trecartin Show, and even though this link says until Summer 2009, Trecartin's show is still up by popular demand. Trecartin is like an amazing alchemy of Bruce Andrews meets David Lynch meets John Waters while on a cocktail of acid and crack. NOT TO BE MISSED! And it's just a couple of blocks away.

The other show is The Malcolm McLaren Show and The Barkley Hendricks Show, both at PAFA, also only a few blocks away. And when at PAFA, upstairs at the Hendricks Show in the permanent collection are amazing pieces of work by Lee Krasner, Louise Nevelson, and other great pieces! The Nevelson is one of my favorites, it's a sculpture she created from the remains of the St. Mark's Church on the Bowery's church organ after they had a fire many years ago.

Have a great time everyone, but only die here if you love it here. We'll give you a nice funeral.

Don't forget a quick spin over to West Philly for another one of the better exhibitions that have been here since I moved here in October '08.

It's free.
