Giving Like Scrooge
All those Gift Guides must have gotten to me (The Atlantic’s was particularly ridiculous and useless: Vespa, tech, tech, tech, book, book, book, nailpolish), since I was spurred to make a gift recommendation of my own over in the Observers Room. But then, two days later, I reverted to my natural Scrooge.
Little Boxes: AMAC Plastic Boxes just happen to be one of MoMA’s Humble Masterpieces, but I didn’t know that when I lined them up on my bureau as a child. Their cheapness, usefulness, brilliant color and crystalline shape makes them an object for the ages.
No Rest at the Last Supper: “Leonardo’s Last Supper: A Vision by Peter Greenaway” is indeed a dud: cheese-tastic, bombastic, didactic.
