Anonymous asked: HI Joe, As you can see we share the same last name. The only other Joe Veix I know in our family tree lives in Burlington, N.C. Would you mind sharing your background with me to see if we are related in some way. Henry Veix

Hi Henry! I wasn’t aware that anyone else in the world had this crazy last name, other than those in my immediate family. Neat.

I’d be happy to send you some info, just not my social security and credit card numbers. Since you didn’t leave any contact information, and sent this anonymously, I’m not sure how to get in touch with you other than posting this reply in public. Feel free to email me at joeveix@gmail.com.

Last night’s Mad Men featured Vanilla Fudge’s “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” playing over the end credits (spoiler alert?), which reminded me of this blistering, insane live performance of the song from 1968.

Zwaska, Erin. This is where. 2014, on-going. Three booklets, PoD. 

“This is where is an ongoing chance-based publication project exploring the increasingly immaterial nature of place. Images are randomly-selected Google streetviews (which are often captured at noon to avoid shadowing) of cities like Paris, Tokyo, etc. The copy is compiled from all tweets containing the phrase ‘this is where’ between noon and 12:15pm local time for each city. Consequently the text and imagery for each 15-minute issue originates from the same, albeit ambiguous, time and place. And though text and image are randomly paired, surprising narratives often emerge. Available for purchase on Lulu.”
