A fantastically busy birthday weekend. Thanks for all the good wishes.

Huge thanks to everyone who came out to Les Infants Terribles and donated to the the tsunami relief effort. We raised about $500 for Architecture For Humanity. The live silk-screening was quite a hit. Special thanks to Loren, Barbara and everyone who donated their time and skills, to Gretchen for playing crazy records and to Corktown Tavern for keeping things going past bedtime. Great party. Great cause. Photos soon. If you missed out, you can still donate directly through the AFH site of course.

Saturday night's opening for The Other Auto Show was also a huge hit. Special thanks to Andy Malone and Aaron Timlin for picking up my slack, to Rob Theakston and Jon Ozias for the excellent musical selections, to Alissa Lincoln for putting together the video design, Whole Foods for the cheese, Elaine, Joseph, the artists, the CAID board of directors and everyone who's efforts made this an exhibit Detroit can truly be proud of. The Other Auto Show will be on exhibit through March 12, 2005. Visit CAID online for gallery hours and details.

Congratulations to Emin and Ivana at Clear Magazine for putting together the first ever runway show at the North American International Auto Show Friday night. It was a real treat to be involved in this project. See the official press relase from DaimlerChrysler.

After many weeks of madness and hard work, Sunday we rested, and saw House of Flying Daggers, which is one of the most visually stunning films I've ever seen, and a beautifully tragic love story. I'm having a hard time finding any reason to not call this movie "perfect".
