So to be honest, I was surprised how viral the post about The Phillips Collection being free for those under this 30 summer was – so you like art? I like art too – so let’s talk art!! Where are your favorite spots to soak some in? I noticed this new Gallery was coming to Florida Ave – so I’d be interested to know, in addition to favorite museums, are there any galleries you like to check out from time to time too?
galeria love coming soon

Spectacular. Thanks to Victoria for sharing her find on Craigslist:
“Custom Light up Couch built from 1948 GMC truck – $3000
Here is a quick rundown:
Lights up, rolls, changes beat with the sound of music or can be put on fades, flashes or a solid LED color. Super structurally sound, all the light work via a wall outlet and powered on by a car key. Drawer in the back for storage and clean wiring. All work done by Furhad Nasserjah, 21 year old local artist to Woodbridge VA.

Three weeks ago, I was driving south down 15th Street towards L Street NW. There was a large truck in the right lane, so I switched to the left lane. I then signaled back to the right lane and came to a full stop at the red light. A few moments later, I heard a loud bang coming from the back right side of my car. I realized someone on a bike had hit my car, and he pulled up to my passenger side window, and said “I’m sorry, that was my fault, I was too close to your car.” He asked if I was ok and I did the same. We both were fine.
He had not been riding in the the bike lane that was 5 feet to the right of the vehicle lane, but rather he had driven in between the large stopped truck and the bike lane and then directly into the back of my car. I guess when he passed the truck, he didn’t see my car to the left of the front of the truck and ran into it.
He started to leave, but I asked him to wait so I could see if there was damage to my car. Indeed, there was a large dent on the trunk (presumably from the handlebars?). I asked for his information and he let me take a picture of his license and gave me his phone number. (more…)
