this weekend

there's a ton going on that I want to do/see and I'm afraid I may spend my time packing instead. here's what I hope to do:
  • rem koolhaas at the hammer. I wrote my master's thesis about him, still haven't seen him speak live.
  • one of my favorite shelter rags, domino, is sponsoring a three-day event at hd buttercup. I'll post the info below.
  • see the arne svensen exhibition at western project of photos of forensic reconstructions of murder victims.
and there's the last cemetary screening of the season on sat, the abbott kinney festival, and the anti-war/anti-bush rally on sat downtown. too much going on. might be able to do a quarter of what I intend. oh, and did I mention I need to start packing?
