HAD A GAS AT THE WALDORF OPENING
Really fun night at the opening of the new Waldorf Hotel last night!
Huge crowd! - They have done an amazing job on restoring and updating the place! Paul Wong created weird room environments that were really clever. Attila wandered the halls having fun. Cathy Darby came as herself. Mad Hatter Cathy Brush was having a good time. I wandered over with fellow Strathconanites Lisa Grant, Tracey Pincott (in vintage Abby Kanak) and my guy Fang. Cory Wyngarden was ready for action . Tanus Lewis did Don King with hubby Gardy as Karl! Great time - and thanks to the management for the hard work!

Icelandic "Necropants" explained
If you want to make your own necropants (literally; nábrók) you have to get permission from a living man to use his skin after he's dead.
After he has been buried you must dig up his body and flay the skin of the corpse in one piece from the waist down. As soon as you step into the pants they will stick to your own skin. A coin must be stolen from a poor widow and placed in the scrotum along with the magical sign, nábrókarstafur, written on a piece of paper. Consequently the coin will draw money into the scrotum so it will never be empty, as long as the original coin is not removed. To ensure salvation the owner has to convince someone else to overtake the pants and step into each leg as soon as he gets out of it. The necropants will thus keep the money-gathering nature for generations. So now ya know!

I like Rodney Graham but...
It not as though I don't like this sculpture, it's that I just don't like it at the entrance to Stanley Park. I think it would look really good in a mall, in a mall food court. And yes I am an art expert.
