Jessica Joslin 2008

This weekend, some work will be done on Sb, so no posts (or new comments) will be updated for a day or so. I'll post to let you know when the drought is over. :)

In the meantime, there are many great events to keep you occupied this weekend. if you're in Philly, head over to the Mutter Museum dance party (!) tonight. Yes, that is a skeleton in a disco wig.

If you're in San Francisco, Velvet da Vinci is holding an opening reception tonight at 6pm for Hilary Pfeifer's new show, Natural Selection. And if you're farther south, Billy Shire Fine Arts in Culver City is holding a reception tomorrow for my perennial favorite Jessica Joslin's new show, Clockwork Circus.

If you're in the DC area tomorrow, Rebecca Goldin of the Statistical Assessment Service is speaking to the National Capital Area Skeptics (NCAS) on "How Statistics Are Misunderstood in the Media and Society." The public, free lecture is at 1:30 pm at the National Science Foundation.

Enjoy your weekend!
