Formerly Felines for Anarchistic Green Democracies

A Bostonian at the University of Michigan.

There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Sunday, February 13, 2005  

If I could remember where I got this photo, I would tell you.

Today (yesterday, you know) was the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge, which I watched solely because Adam Vinatieri (Patriots) was in the kicking competition and Shaun Rogers (Lions) was in the strongest player competition. The strongest player competition just involved seeing how often the guys could lift a certain amount of weight-- it was very straightfoward and tidy. Big Baby tied for second with 31 reps, so eh.

The kicking competition, however, was awesome. It was just Vinatieri and David Akers of the Eagles, and they were essentially trying to one-up each other with insane kicks. They did crazy lengths, crazy angles, crazy kicking styles (blindfolded, holding the ball like a punter, etc). The whole while they were bantering back and forth like they were the best of friends. Oh, and they wore each others' jerseys, which prompted Akers at one point to say, "Hey, even if I lose, it's Akers winning, so it's a win-win for me."

More quotes from the kicking competition:

Akers, after gazing admiringly for a moment at Vinatieri: "Man you look good in that jersey."

Akers, after making a long punt: "Now that was like 54, 55 yards..."
Vinatieri, talking over him, to the announcer: "That was all of 60. Don't let him tell you less, that was all of 60."

Vinatieri after Akers had attempted to kick the ball blindfolded: "See, I might have an advantage here, because David usually looks where he's kicking. Half the time, I've got my eyes closed anyways." [Vinatieri missed this kick worse than Akers did]

Akers: "Could I have one of your rings?"
Vinatieri: "No."

Adam Vinatieri and David Akers, I love you guys. Oh, Adam won, by the by, but the best part was just watching them kick and chatter, the end result didn't matter a whit.

Anyways, last night Heather and I went to the gallery opening on North Campus, because GSI Zach was DVJing. It was crazy. DVJing takes more equipment than anything I've ever seen, but the end result was admittedly very cool. I did end up liking the music mixes better than the video mixes, but maybe I'm just afraid of The Future of DJing. There was actually a pretty good crowd, and for once we weren't the only undergrads there, although we were a decided minority. I saw my fibers professor (waved to her across one of the galleries), my old drawing professor (with whom I chatted for a bit), the Dean (studiously avoided eye contact), my current art lecture professor (went so far as to slink around corners to remain out of his line of sight-- ever since the Great Philosophical/Biological Debate of Discussion Group I've found it prudent to avoid him), and a whole slew of GSIs.

Best pieces? Ben Van Dyke's Addiction/Utopia/Uforia thing. Wicked cool. He does this stuff with paper cut up obsessively small and skinny little letters you can barely see. Zach's piece in the Robbins gallery upstairs, the name of which I forget. He had 'defaced' a whole series of those cards they give us telling us about the upcoming guest artist lecturers, and they were utterly hilarious. I wish I could just reprint them here, because seriously, this was funny stuff. Someone I didn't know who had cut up old postcards and lined them up to make massive collages... i.e. she cut up a bunch of postcards with pictures of bridges on them and made one giant bridge, a bunch of mountains to make one giant mountain peak, etc. It was much cooler than it sounds here, honest. And there was some comic book art, again by someone I don't know, Jennifer Zee I think. The main characters were drawn as anthropomorphized ants, all Art Spieglman-style. Awesomeity.

Pro Bowl tomorrow, along with massive work to finish my CFC project (modular units of design! don't ask). And I should probably work on revamping my website, because apparently we're suppposed to do that for our sophomore reviews (which I may or may not actually be having this year). See, kids, I have wicked exciting weekends. Honest.
