41 Days and Counting

I was surfing ye olde internets this p.m. and found this wonderful image of a Zaha Hadid building in Dubai. It's scheduled to be done in 2010. It's actually three buildings constructed with a hole in the center.
What does this tell us about post-modern skepticism of authority?
Well, hopefully it illustrates something about narrative, because it's going in the talk!
A little less anxious, as I have written maybe three pages. And I got some books from the library!
But I'm still counting down the days. But that doesn't mean I'm not also watching "American Idol." Thank god it's not two hours anymore. That's excessive.
Son thinks David Archuleta is going to win. I told him that I would buy him an ice cream sundae if he did! He probably will. Aside from him, all the boys were a little blah tonight.

cool, cool building. Don't you kind of wonder, though, how the architect got away with it? because that hole in the middle, that could be more rooms, which equals more rent, which equals more money, right? "skepticism of authority"? what about "skepticism of less money than you could have if there weren't a hole in the building"?

Still, cool building.

I like that building. Still I can't help but wonder about how it would hold up in an earthquake. Are earthquakes common in Dubai?? Probably not but years of living with a geologist AND in California have changed me. It is very cool though. Love to go inside. Keep up the good work.
