Friends,
Almost a month ago Jessica and I became engaged. As is a tradition in many families, my parents requested that we put together an engagement announcement for my hometown newspaper, the Omaha World Herald.  Last night, we went online, filled out the proper forms and submitted them. 
My father followed up with the paper this morning to be sure everything would be taken care of, and was told by the Omaha World Herald that they have a policy of NOT publishing same-gender annoucements.  Jessica and I were shocked. It never even crossed our minds that we would be met with this response.
We know we’re probably not the first to hear this news - but we would really like to be the last.  Please help us end this outdated and discriminatory policy by contacing the Omaha World Herald at 402-444-1000 or pulse@owh.com  and telling them this isn’t right. 
Kristy and Jessica

So it’s just a lazy saturday afternoon, hangin with my puppy, listening to sleighbells (new fave), and trolling the internet for inspiration for my new show.  For no apparent reason other than curiosity, I decided to google image search woman and man and see what came up.  Here is the first image for each search.  Funny how google just about nailed the whole point of this upcoming show in 2 seconds flat. 

BTW my new show opens at Intermedia Arts on August 19th, and is called Sideshow.  8 Minneapolis-based women working in and inspired by hip-hop explore themes of a woman’s place in hip-hop culture and how most of the time that is a voice struggling to be heard.  We will be transforming the gallery into a circus of hip-hop creations made exclusively for this show.  Get ready, this is going to be my best yet.  

offensive soliciting email anyone?

Here’s my new bike!!!  Well, it’s not this one exactly, but it’s identical to, and in my apartment, yay!  If I don’t end up with some skin off my elbows and knees and maybe a few sprains I’ll be lucky.  It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be to balance on such close together handle bars, and don’t even get me started on the vintage gear shifts, but this is going to be so much fun!  And Minneapolis just beat out Portland for America’s best biking city.  What timing!
