  • In 2006, an English teacher at Xavier High School in NYC gave an assignment, asking his students to write a letter to their favorite authors, persuading him or her to visit the school. Five students wrote to Kurt Vonnegut.

He was the only author to write back: "Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta:

I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don't make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.

What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what's inside you, to make your soul grow.

Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you're Count Dracula.

Here's an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don't do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don't tell anybody what you're doing. Don't show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?

Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash recepticals. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what's inside you, and you have made your soul grow.

God bless you all!

Kurt Vonnegut"

  • “They made the cheapest slice, and they wanted to prove they could make the best slice.” Eli and Oren Halali, the 2 brothers behind New York’s popular @2brospizza, are the masters of the fast, cheap lunch — and the $1 slice. Now, with Noam Grossman, they've opened @upsidepizza, a slice shop that prizes flavor and high-quality ingredients above all. The cooks make fresh #mozzarella every morning. The plain cheese slice has 4 kinds of cheese, fresh, naturally leavened crust and costs $3. @jeenahmoon shot this photo of Upside’s #Sicilian slice with #pepperoni.

  • Like AIDS, PAC MAN was designed to kill. Playing PAC MAN back in 1983 provided an escape from the harsh reality of just trying to survive.  I started incorporating PAC MAN in my work in 2010, but wasn’t ready to speak about the meaning of the work — it was something I struggled with until recently. What’s the goal of any game? To survive —
I SURVIVED AIDS.
