I Can't Even Explain This

I have to send you away to 2 places and then ask you to come back here and tell me what you think. I'm linking to a relatively cryptic post by Evany then you have to hit the link in that post and see what this guy, Dave Horvitz, is doing. I think it's sort of brilliant and endlessly weird and I have this urge to participate but I feel like the rest of the world is looking back and saying, "That's stupid." Anyone who knows me knows that I'm certainly not above stupid (examples too endless to list, feel free to insert your favorites in the comments) so the real question is, which one do I buy?!?!?!?!

Suggestions and offers to go in on projects together are greatly appreciated.


  1. I'm sorry - I don't really get it.

    The star sand is cool, though - I'd like some of that. Of course, I'd like to go there MYSELF to get it, but that's another story...

  2. I like the meal for a homeless person. The tuition for school cracked me up, somewhat.

    Don't be duped. Duped should rhyme with stupid in any language

    Put 10 bucks per week in your own pocket and take yourself a nice vacation. Otherwise YOU take a photo a day and sell it for a fee. A friend here took a photo a day of a crabapple tree and it got published as a coffee table book. Buyer beware.

    You don't know me but I found you through Mrs. Chili.

    I love this idea!! I think it's a creative way for a poor student artist to raise some money. It isn't a scam - he tells you exactly what you will get for your money and I think it's clear that his intention is to do something unique to raise some money rather than just ask for handouts.

    I'm totally going to do one of these - probably the meal for the homeless person one. But I'm going to ask if I can pay a little more and have him take a picture of the person with the food or of just the food or something.

    I will comment on every blog you ever post if you pay my tuition.

  7. I think the comments here say everything I thought about it. Some of it seems stupid and yet it seems creative and honest on some level. Clearly it's not terribly motivational seeing as how he hasn't had too many of these projects funded. I do like some of them and am interested in doing them. I think Evany's entry was lovely way of expressing it, too, since she was kind of piggybacking his idea.
