new year's eve


will be doing some virtual celebrating on a group blog called Haze Luux or commetscommets, depending on where you are looking. please come by to watch people igniting cyberfireworks (the ones above are agnes martin's) and guzzling jpeg champagne

oh, yeah and vomiting.

the results will be online for a few days. hat tip David Gray.

Update: Hypothete's posting of Prince's "1999" on YouTube reminded me of this story, which I think I just put out of my mind for eleven years:

On Dec. 31, 1999 I went to a party in an artist friend's Brooklyn studio. Fun, but very sparsely attended because every other New Yorker had left town for cabins upstate, family in the burbs, etc. It was widely believed that due to the Y2K bug the city was going to be in chaos with widespread looting etc. So those of us who stayed did indeed "party like it was 1999."
