At least give them something to really petition against.

Leading artists call to action against the Frick expansion plans
Interesting how it wasn't even acid itself that inspired "a new thing called acid-tecture." And...
"Who knows, maybe 100 years from now architecture will be like multiple choice..."

The new $2.5 billion plan to rebuild the historic Penn Station
I'm sure it will be considered too stylish, but I'd love to see some neo-baroque touches incorporated.

Architecture Critic Mark Lamster: "We systemically encourage bad building."
The real problem is that new development isn't junky enough.

"Junky is so uniquely 21st century. I love all of it!"

Architecture Critic Mark Lamster: "We systemically encourage bad building."
"Oh yes, 'Junky Architecture' is indeed uniquely 21st century, but aren't you also glad to see how 22nd century architecture is now even "Junkier"? I mean, I'm like ecstatic over it!"
And if "silly memes" killed the "Folk Art demo opposition," then the "Folk Art demo opposition" must have been a featherweight and the "silly memes" a heavyweight.

Don't just embrace the junk, make it junkier!

Interview : March 22, 2014
...also coincidently this morning, was reading "Deleuze's transcendental empiricism" in Continental Philosophy: A Contemporary Introduction, and towards the end of the chapter "eternal return" comes up. Turns out the passages revolve around quotations from Deleuze's Difference and Repetition:
"Eternal return, in its esoteric truth, concerns--and can concern--only the third time of the series. Only there it is determined. That is why it is properly called a belief of the future, a belief in the future." (DR 90)
"The present is the repeater, the past is repetition itself, but the future is that which is repeated." (DR 94) So just now I looked more into the 90-94 pages of Difference and Repetition, and I'm going to continue reading there. I've owned DR for 18 years now, but I never read much of it. Now I see some potential fruitfulness as to it relating to the notion of "Eternal Wrest will have to do with reenacting with a twist as a constant generator of originality."
Wrest is itself a fruitful word: 1 a : to pull, force, or move by violent wringing or twisting movements   2 : to gain with difficulty by or as if by coercive force, or steady determined labor   3 a : to divert to an unintended, unnatural, or esp. improper use b : to misinterpret or misapply (a law) intentionally   c : to deflect or change from a true or normal bearing, significance or interpretation

Who's work are you currently interested in?
Last two days been working on a new house.

Four days ago it was interest in OMA's Apraksin Dvor that spurred some "learning from" and ultimately this:

Two weeks ago interest in BIG's 2008 work, particularly Art Souq, led to Art Souq neighborhoods within IQ12, etc., etc.
One month ago there was interest in Hejduk's wall [house] types and museums.
