Actually, I learned another thing:
We are not allowed to screw at any angle other than in-line with the center of Mother Earth. I wonder if they laid that wall down prior to attaching the plywood so they could paint it.

First off, why was there no mention of sizing the broom for the space being
swept? As the wise man once said "If you are working too hard, you are pro
bably using the wrong tool." (This was said while watching a guy try to put
a hole in a concrete floor with a hammer and chisel)
Second: "Each broom stroke should be more effective than the stroke that ca
me before it." In other words, eventually you should be able to simply show
your broom to the room and the task will be complete.
The video reminded me of something a friend said probably 35 years ago while
sweeping up the the repair area in a bicycle shop. "My mother was worried I
was going to grow up pushing a broom but I faked her out... I pull it!"

But wait...that's not what it says at the Tom Sachs' vimeo page:
"These films are required viewing for Tom Sachs' studio. They comprise guides to studio practice and documentation of specific projects and installations."
They can't put anything on the internet that isn't true.
I can promise you there are easier, less esthetic means of telling his

Those videos do much more to show off the craft of the videographer

If we ever get to where we don't know how to deal with fractions, like
those on the metric system, ;~) we should go to incha'meter,
foota'meter, yarda'meter, and milea'meter.
Much less confusing than centi, mili, deci, kilo, etc. :~)
If not using fractions is so darn important, why are machinists the only
ones out there using decimal inches?
Why do they bother with those prefixes anyway? Why not just pronouce the
power-of-10? My height is approximately 76 negative-two-meters. (I'm
sitting down.) Now, we're to a useful and self-describing but not really
I, for one, found it amusing.
It also brings memories of "Uncle" Leon, who was more like grand-uncle
to my father. Uncle Leon once owned a small mill in Coos County, New
Hampshire. He loved plywood and had a grandfather clock cabinet made of
it, showing the layers. His stated reason for loving it was because he
couldn't make it in his mill.
Uncle Leon was a very old man when I met him as a small child, and the
mill was long gone. The story, though, keeps him alive in the family.
remembers, too, skipping stones on the river there
