Just two more days ’til the start of the Olympics which will kick-off Friday evening with a spectacular fireworks show by gunpowder artist Cai Guo Qiang. Qiang had the first solo exhibit of a Chinese artist at the Guggenheim earlier this year.
Games start on the block with my favorite Wolverine, Michael Phelps, swimming the 400IM. I may miss this due to Otakon (gottdamn!) but the finals are on Sunday (phew!)
Only thing: I had forgotten to prepare for the Olympics and have a shitload of stuff that’s gotta be filed over the weekend. Maybe on the train to Baltimore…?
