Show Me The Way

The stars have aligned twice in a month, allowing me to visit the city again, this time sans children.
My suggestion to view the Shepard Fairey show at the ICA was merely an excuse to get up to Boston and hang out with Liz for a few hours but like my fateful visit to Graceland lo those many years ago, I came away with a genuine appreciation for Mr. Fairey and his art. That's my way of saying I fell for the whole Obey schtick hook, line, and slacker.
Like everyone else at the museum, I also came away with Andre the Giant's stats permanently tattooed on my impressionable brain: 7 feet, four inches, 520lbs.

song: Show Me The Way • artist: Peter Frampton
