Psyched to be on the road again

After a soul-sucking week at day job, I’m happy to be out and about again. I’ve been working my ass off for the past month and a half, and I need a break. To make matters worse, I was starting to get the travel itch again, so I needed to scratch it with a short gig like DC before it becomes needss a big solution (like Spain or Italy).

I like DC. It’s a great destination for a fast weekend trip. The flight was only 37 minutes long (if you don’t count the hour on the runway at LaGuardia). Can’t beat this shit.

New Travel Stories on Wandering Blogger

Check out my travel blog, Wandering Blogger, for a few new stories on my trip to Washington, D.C. … still in progress. I’ve only been on the ground for 12 hours, and I’m already having adventures! In fact, I’ve already been attacked by a cougar!!!

Julio Aguilera in Saatchi Gallery Art Magazine

Learn about New York artist Julio Aguilera’s latest project, a sculpture of Prometheus, in the Saatchi art gallery’s online magazine. The bronze sculpture, modeled on the God of Fire cigar label, will be featured at a charity auction to be held at the Grand Havana Room on October 15th. This could prove to be the cigar event of the year.

The future of private equity

After having taken a break from recreational financial writing, I’m finally back in action on Digital Journal. Using the latest data from Private Equity Intelligence, Ltd, I have written about private equity inflow trends and the differences in how North Americans and Europeans invest in China.

[From Wandering Blogger] People who bother me

I hate it when people see that you’re trying to take a picture and linger. So, I made this asshole part of it. Fuck him.

Aside from this prick, I had a great time at the Museum of Modern Art over the weekend, and I recommend the Dali exhibition highly. The mix of sketches, paintings and video came together perfectly.

If you haven’t seen his Destino film, check out the video below. It isn’t nearly as wild as the projection in MoMA, but at least you’ll get a feel for this masterpiece.
