happy park(ing) day

today is friday, park(ing) day all around the globe. i will be on the lookout for them on my way downtown.

Originally created by Rebar, San Francisco art and design collective, PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens independently but simultaneously temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks.

i saw this last year down in the financial district and the suits mainly looked confused.

and i'm totes back on bici, so i think i'll leave soon to go find some parks.

oh, and btw, listening to ira glass bust npr listeners for listening for years and not paying. it's funny listening to him reason with people. the person he busted this morning was this man who on an online dating site listed the top 5 things he couldn't live without. number one was npr. the woman who would become his wife and mother of their two children liked that list back in the day. then totally busted him for using npr to pick up chicks and never donate, even though apparently he can during this crapppppy economy. me thinks the combo of ira glass and his wife worked.
