Gone Today; Hair Tomorrow

Yes, I meant to invert the old saw. It's not Jenny Holzer, and it's not even proper performance art, but my getting my twelve or so inches shorn and mailing a braid to Locks of Love to help little kids recovering from cancer was as close to a Karen Finley moment as I'll ever get. Come to think of it, maybe I'm just getting started; with Valentine's Day coming up, a body suit of chocolate could well be my next act.

Speaking of hairy, today Kurt Andersen's extremely most excellent Very Short List had a squib on Ok Go's video. The whole thing makes me happy, but I particularly heart the swampfolk musicians.

All of this is so charming! Kudos for sending your braid out to LoL...some other uni-bruni out there will be very happy!

And that OK Go video is so smile-inducing! Thanks for posting. We love the swamp things, too!

Have you seen the "other" video for the OK Go song?

I love how their painty clothes create so much tension about what's going to happen.
