    Contemporaneity of Real Estate Ads

    Scott Kepford Jan 31 '09 0

    I was at the MOCA gift store today flipping through a mens magazine called Fantastic Man, which is put out by the creators of the fabulously gay Butt Magazine, when I was amazed to discover UCLA professor Neil Denari full-page staring back at me. It was apparently an ad for his under-construction HL23 (kind of a nice site actually) condo building on the High Line in Chelsea.

    They really did an ad JUST for a gay mens mag? The shot IS very Fantastic Man... Congrats on being an object of gay desire Neil! I kind of want to show this to my theory teacher Sylvia Lavin so we can deconstruct its contemporaneity in class.

    Even Kanye loves it:

    He even had a very erudite critique of it, even discussing the merits of the structural system. Maybe an intern wrote that.


    Also, I'm going to a funny "mixer" at school tonight called "Drape Me". The description is:
    "Come dressed as your favorite Rhino
    command. Drape, Split, Make2d, Show
    Naked Edges... Use your imagination!"
    And it includes "Beer! Music! Noshes! Fun! Best Costume Contest! Pin-the-horn-on-the-Rhino! Point Cloud Twister! Draw-Curve-on-Surface Body Painting!" I'm bringing non-arch friends, so I hope it won't be TOO dorky.
