I missed a couple of weeks.
Here’s what’s been happening.
1: My parents came to visit and we had a lovely time. It was opening weekend for Hudson Yards so we went into see what that was all about. They had heard about the Vessel by Thomas Heatherwick so we went to see it. As I mentioned it as opening day so Hudson Yards was bananas! On Sunday we stayed around NJ and I showed off the van.
I did a test install of a new part I designed for the van. It’s a little vent cover in the back seat that now houses some power outlets, a light switch and dimmer. The red switch on the right is for the shower. Once I have that working I’ll do a post.
2. Last weekend we went to went back to Hudson Yards because we had tickets to acctually walk on the vessel. I didn’t think it would be as interesting as it was. From the ground it’s quite an impressive structure and sculpture so I thought that was kinda it. Turns out it’s actually quite a lovely experience. We got to Hudson Yards earlier in the day so we had a chance to walk around the shopping center. Much of it is a disappointing mall, but on the 4th floor there are some very interesting concept type stores that are much more interesting. We went to lunch at Queen’s Kitchen and had an amazing view of the vessel. Almost too close.
We spent the rest of the day hanging out in Brooklyn with our friend J-bone. He told me about how that old newspaper comic strip Nancy has been taken over by a young writer and what a sensation it’s become. Sluggo is lit indeed.
Lastly we went to see Better Oblivion Community Center, a band Kate is into. Their main draw is Phoebe Bridgers who appears to be the coolest thing ever. It was good, she seem lovely.
