discovering david horvitz

i don't really know much about david, but i do know that my life may never be the same again now that i've found him. this morning i discovered david horvitz's list - a list of extremely unusual things you can purchase from him - things such as:

If you give me $1,626 I will go to the small Okinawan island called Taketomi and send you an envelope filled with star-sand (don't worry, I've been there before, I know where to go). I will send it from there.

another favorite:

If you give me $250 I will read the Little Prince in front of the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street in the middle of a work day. I will send you photograph documentation of this. (or: if you give me $1000 I will buy as many copies of the Little Prince as I can and give them away to people leaving the New York Stock Exchange after a days work)

i think david horvitz would be a great friend. a crazy friend perhaps. but i'd never have a dull moment.

today i also discovered the secret to life. well almost. a clever bowl designed to keep your cereal crunchy.

in conclusion, i've realized that i pretty much instantly fall in love with three breeds of people: inventors, music makers and contestants on 'so you think you can dance'.
