Before moving on, I wanted to mention a couple of news items. First of all, DOCOMOMO, the fantastic organization that works to protect our Modernist heritage, has launched their new website. I'll have to say, it looks quite nice, and I'm happy to see them thriving.

His monsters represent exorbitant telephone charges. It makes me wonder if Longo's ever been approached by, say, a troupe of experimental puppeteers, and if not, then why on earth hasn't he?
