Unreal in NYC

In April, I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the winners of the Volkswagen’s Fan Ticket GIFaway.  A few weeks earlier, I entered an animated GIF into the contest in hopes of receiving tickets to one of the performances of Kraftwerk Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 at the MoMA.  My GIF not only won me tickets to the final performance, but was also selected to be projected as part of the VW fan mosaic digital billboard. Thank you Volkswagen for a trip of a lifetime!

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

Lets begin by setting the mood with this cute little song. Thank you Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt for your rendition of What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

This year, I traveled up to Boston to have a Sister New Year’s Eve.  Our night was spent in French bohemian style at our favorite bar, The Beehive.  We celebrated with food, drinks, cotton candy, a live band, and burlesque dancers.  I hope that everyone enjoyed their NYE as much as we did.  If last night was any prediction of how 2012 will be, then I cannot wait to see what this year will bring.

How did you spend your NYE?
