SpeedeNeork commented on UVA Architecture School Dean's Forum Lecture: Robert Ivy
Hey guys, My name is Oliver and I am from Stirling in the United Kingdom. I have the other day discovered this forum and I like it very much. I am a bit shy so I wont write much about me but maybe when I will get more confortable, you will get to know me better! My main hobbies are cooking and...
jeannine Regan commented on Communal creation: Four artists flow together
laura Thank you for your review of our exhibit at Mcguffey. I am very appreciative of your review and am thoughtful about your reaction to the music. It was meant to reflect the quiet, contemplative mood of the show, and is asian inspired, mostly from ancient Japanese pieces on bamboo flute.

the music is asian bamboo flute, primarily ancient songs from Japan.
**** commented on Minor's art: Collection might raise $30 million-- but not all for him
I think (from an earlier Hook article?) that Phillip de Pury was paying Halsey 108% of proceeds? [auction houses typically tack on anywhere from 10-20% buyers premium and the extra 8% would presumably come out of that]so 21.05 mil x 1.08 = $22,734,000.00. If ML was smart, their lien covered any...

Don't know how the auction went overall, only caught the last item, Long, Stormy, 1995 by Ed Ruscha estimated to go for $800,000 to 1.2 mil, it sold for $700,000. If thats any indication, Halsey may have to dig a little deeper to get ML off his back.

Who wants to bet that the auction won't even raise enough to satisfy the judgment?
well now.... commented on Minor's art: Collection might raise $30 million-- but not all for him
nice way of putting it angel eyes. If it weren't for the fact that one of these vignettes resulted in a massive eyesore in the middle of our little town, no one would care about this latest 'riches to rags' story.....

I think we all know there's a whole story yet to be told, and all these things are vignettes of the story. It's always intriguing when someone "wins the lottery" and proceeds on a self ruining course that leads him to eventual penury. The mind wonders how someone can "have it all" and still totally...

Perhaps after his creditors are satisfied perhaps Minor can finished his huge failed erection on the downtown mall.
