LOL! That first sentence is great.

MAO.. It seems that the Ryan McGinley book signing "Scheduled Sat" was a total lie by the people at Printed Matter... Shame on them!

The book, "Moonmilk" was soldout in the first 2 days over a month ago.. so Ryan was NEVER schedule to be at the NY Art Book Fair.

I know several people who made the trek out to PS1 in the rain just for that event.. only to find out Ryan wasn't going to be there.

Great posting. I like these detail.
