Leonard Lopate Show

Hi Everyone,

While listening to Leonard Lopate talk about the marathon, I decided to post a comment on his show page. Low and behold he read out my comment in its entirety. Go 20:40 in and you will hear about Lou from Yonkers. I was giddy.
Download the MP3 and zoom to 20:40. Then, listen to the whole thing. It is pretty neat

Everyone is Welcome
A K.O.S. Panel Discussion
Moderated by James Romaine

The New York Center for Art and Media Studies
44 W28th Street, New York, NY 10001
April 8th 2010, 7:30-8:30pm

New York, January 18, 2010—The New York Center for Art and Media Studies (NYCAMS) is pleased to announce Everyone is Welcome: A K.O.S. Panel Discussion. This panel will be held on April 8th 2010, from 7:30 to 8:30pm at The New York Center for Art and Media Studies. This panel is being organized in conjunction with the exhibition Everyone is Welcome: A K.O.S. Showcase, February 19th-April 9th, 2010. The exhibition features the work of K.O.S. artists Angel Abreu, Wesley Martin Berg, Robert Branch, Daniel Bocatto, Daniel Castillo, Ala Ebtekar, George Garces, Nelson Ricardo Savinon, Steven Vega, Benjamin Volta, and Bryce Zackery.

Since 1981, members of K.O.S. have collaborated with artist and educator Tim Rollins. Their collaboratively produced art is in the permanent collection of more than eighty museums and has been the subject of more than one hundred solo exhibitions. The art of Tim Rollins and K.O.S. is currently on view a traveling retrospective, organized by the Tang Museum, at the Frye Art Museum. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog published by MIT Press.

Over the past three decades, many members of K.O.S. have continued to produce and exhibit independently created art. The remarkable quality and diversity of this work disproves any suggestion that there is a “K.O.S.-style.” Everyone is Welcome: A K.O.S. Showcase is the first exhibition devoted exclusively to the work of current and former members of K.O.S.

Nice meeting you lo

Dude: You wrote the best Marathon article in the history of VCTC newsletters (dating back to 1560). Seriously,, I enjoyed that Francaise cigarette comment and the whole surreal, happy-go-lucky, experience of your run. Not too shabby for a guy that just knows how to draw cartoons.
I'm used to articles that sound like this. Mile 2 good, Mile 3 very good, 4, bad, 5, very very bad...

I love it your goal: "marathon and then never doing another one." I have the same feeling. I ran NYC in 2005 and was so miserable from mile 21 on that I said to myself "never doing this again". The half is enough for me. I've so far stuck to that although there is a slight temptation to try it again.
