I spent last week in Brazil - São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Búzios.
In Rio, we had the amazing opportunity to walk through a favela that has been recently pacified. (“Pacification” is, essentially, the establishment of police units in favelas to drive out gangs and drug traffickers.) The stacked and squeezed buildings reminded me of the way San Francisco looks from outside the city, each unit a colorful little box that feels like a giant could just reach down and pull it open like a dresser drawer.
I loved Rio. The city is already gorgeous during the day, but it really comes alive at night, when the lights come on and create tiny stars on the horizon.
You can see these little stars on buildings in DC and Baltimore.
They’re called star anchors, and they’re there to literally anchor rods and beams to the interior to keep it from falling apart. They also happen to look really cool.
Evoking an era of modernist painting, Andy Dixon's work is both expressive and contemporary in form and aesthetic.(viaexhibition-ism)
Nope, everyone needs to witness this. This is Hatebeak, a death metal band whose lead singer is Waldo, an African Grey. You’re welcome.
Looked them up, their wikipedia page says they are from Baltimore, which makes me happy. Also
"Hatebeak made their second record with Caninus, a band whose lead signer is two dogs."
This makes me even happier.
