Nerve Man

The giant man of nerves was part of the "Conquest of Pain" exhibit held at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry in 1955. If I had seen this thing as a kid, it definitely would have given me nightmares.

Polycystic Kidney Disease

Our own WUvian, Tyrusguy, had polycystic kidney disease, in which the kidneys form cysts all over them. Over time the kidneys become very large, Ty's were 20 pounds, and stop functioning. Eventually the kidneys must be removed and the patient must go on dialysis until they receive a new kidney. I say he had the disease because he no longer does since the 'evil twins' were removed on lucky Friday the 13th. Ty came through with flying colors and is recuperating at home. A picture of his kidneys is in extended, not safe for stomachs- you have been duly warned. More >>

Michal Samama



Let me know how far you get into this performance.

Her home page.

Maybe you'd like to catch her newest exhibition in NYC:

In the theater, Ms. Samama, with a whistle in her mouth, removes her clothing and lies on the floor next to the room’s white brick wall. Stretching her legs up the wall and folding them into her belly, she travels in a continuous spiral along its perimeter. It’s painstaking work, and her labored breathing is audible through the whistle.

Trophy Wife

Statue of Stephanie Seymour commissioned by her husband from artist Maurizio Cattelan. Not brand new news, but missed by me certainly when it happened. And art is eternal.
