I wish I could have included the video, of my friend Adam Becker, proposing to his girl friend Tracey, at the Long Island, NY, gym, where they met. They may have met at a different gym, but why ruin a good story. The entire proposal was documented on Facebook.
I was flabbergasted when I saw Adam, walk over to his girlfriend, kneel down, and propose, while she was working out on a weight machine. It was picture perfect. They both are fitness fanatics, and there couldn’t have been a better place for their formal commitment to each other to start.
While there are many complaints about Facebook lately, I can honestly say, this marriage proposal, is what the social media platform, was intended for. It is a place where people can share milestones and hopes and dreams. Bravo to Adam who made his life a magical journey when he decided to devote his physical and mental energies on himself.
Mazel Tov to Tracey and Adam. We share in your joy.
From Audible to Whole Foods: A Look at Amazon’s Empire. Story begins here….
My first introduction into the world of art came from Richard Ekstract, the publisher of a chain of tech publications. I worked for him for three years (1974 to 1977) and, at the time, was exposed to some of the most bizarre art you have ever seen. He collected ultra, contemporary art pieces. I loved every one of them because they represented his creativity to me.
I never quite understood the world of art even though Eliot and I have bought a fair amount of moderately-priced paintings and sculptures over the years. I have always questioned who establishes the price of art, why do some artists succeed, while others falter, and how did certain collectors get so rich.
You have to watch the HBO special “The Price Of Everything.” It will answer many of the questions we all have.
The following artists are featured in the documentary: Richter, Jeff Koons, George Condo, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Marilyn Minter and Larry Poons, as well as art-world insiders Stefan Edlis, Jerry Saltz, Amy Cappellazzo, Ed Dolman, Margaret Lee and others.
You owe it to yourself to watch this film. It’s so right on.
