Artomatic!

Got a Secret? (Discussed briefly previouslyhere) The idea behind Frank Warren Artomatic exhibit was simple: distribute 3,000 post cards asking the public to share a secret with him anonymously by reply mail, and sit back and wait for the replies. Some of the post cards are now on display at the Anne C. Fisher gallery, but if you can't make it to the Georgetown show don't worry, Warren has created a "Postsecret" blog where you can see some of the most interesting replies. (via DCist)

What was wrong with the other post?

The "Postsecret" link is really great. Some of those just blew me away. Thanks, indiebass.

Is this a trick? Seriously, it would be better to post your auxillary link as a comment in mathowie's initial January 25, 2005 fpp (which is obviously still open), as opposed to this double post.

PIKE!

Hey smackfu and naxosaxur... I made this post to highlight the artist, the project and the gallery exhibition which was absent from the previous post. I debated burying it in the comments of the previous post, but decided it was worth its own bees-wax. I acknowledged the previous discussion (though somehow forgot a space between "previously" and "here") at the very beginning.

If you disagree with my decisionmaking, well then that's just, like, your opinion... man...

I thought it was cool, and double points for the Lebowski quote

Doood, you totally double-posted #1... intentionally no less, because posting your new link as a comment in a two-day old post would be burying it. I wait for the coming smite-down (but that's just my, um, opinion).

Also. (May be NSFW depending on the latest confessions.)

a) You knowingly double-post a link that was posted just one day before.

b) You post five links, including two copies of the original link, one for the original post, another for the "Via" link, and one single original link.

c) Did I mention you posted the same link twice? Oops, I did. That just, like, sucks, man.

d) Your punctuation sucks too.

Try harder.

If you hadn't double post, I wouldn't have seen it, and this is one of the greatest things I've ever seen.

Thanks.
