January 17, 2012 The Obliteration Room

Start off with a completely white room - a canvas of sorts.



Give children lots of dot stickers.



Quote:
The white room is gradually obliterated over the course of the exhibition, the space changing measurably with the passage of time as the dots accumulate as a result of thousands and thousands of collaborators.


Discovered on This Is Colossal

Installation conceived by Yayoi Kusama: Look Now, See Forever
and shown in Queensland Gallery of Modern Art.

I like it.

Imagine if they gave each visitor gum to use instead?



bbuilder  Tuesday Jan 17 11:42 AM

Did someone say gum??

This is the Maid Rite drive thru in the greater Greenville Ohio area. The Maid Rite's are good if you don't get too grossed out driving past the gum art. I am a frequent contributor.

then you get the Seattle Gum Wall.

See, this is why they say careful what you ask for.


BigV  Tuesday Jan 17 11:44 AM

Hiya bbuilder!

Nice find. Welcome to the cellar.



bbuilder  Tuesday Jan 17 01:20 PM

Thanks, BigV. I've been a lurker for awhile. Your Seattle Gum Wall is much more colorful.

I really want to paint my basement white now and hand out stickers. I'll put it on my to-do list.

Thanks for posting that, bbuilder. I've been to Maid Rite's a few times, though not for a few years now. As soon as I read that glatt mentioned using gum, I thought of "the loose meat sandwich place in Greenville...what's it called?"

How long has Maid Rite been there? It is pretty famous locally.

Welcome, fellow Ohioan!

You make sandwiches out of hookers in Ohio?


infinite monkey  Tuesday Jan 17 10:40 PM

Only Hobo Hookers.



ZenGum  Tuesday Jan 17 11:37 PM

That sounds like a fishing club who use old boots for bait.

When I was a kid, there was a ride at Six Flags theme park that had a tree you could reach from on the ride. Everybody stuck their gum there.

There are hookers in Ohio? gasp.

Maid Rite has been in Greenville since 1934 from what I can tell. Apparently things don't change there much which adds to the charm.


Pete Zicato  Wednesday Jan 18 10:10 AM

On a more serious note, what the heck is a loose meat sandwich? How does it differ from a...sandwich.



infinite monkey  Wednesday Jan 18 10:17 AM

Crumbled beef. I don't know what all they use in them, but they're delish!



Clodfobble  Wednesday Jan 18 01:36 PM

Like a sloppy joe without the sauce holding it together?



infinite monkey  Wednesday Jan 18 02:16 PM

Yeah, like that. It sounds like nothing special but they are quite good.



bbuilder  Wednesday Jan 18 04:48 PM

(Crud - can't post the pic. Day of all days. google Maid Rite images if you wanna have a looksee.)

Nothing holding it together, it kinda falls apart.



Pete Zicato  Wednesday Jan 18 05:26 PM

Ok. I looked. Someone started out browning hamburger to make spaghetti but decided to make a sandwich instead.



infinite monkey  Wednesday Jan 18 05:34 PM

On Roseanne they started a loose meat sandwich diner.



Pete Zicato  Wednesday Jan 18 05:40 PM

They must think we're too refined for Maid-Rite here in Chicago. They started in Iowa. They're in Ohio. They seem to have missed us here.

Here is Maid Rite.

And the sandwich:



What the heck, let's throw in the menu, too, while we're at it:

You know, it has such a local 'greasy spoon' type ambiance I never knew it was a franchise. Looking at the site, I don't see a listing of all the restaurants to find the one in Greenville OH, but I would assume it's part of the franchise.

I looked up the one in G-ville, and found a recipe...

Faux Maid-Rite
1 lb Ground Beef
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp prepared mustard
6 oz beer (optional)
salt (to taste)

Not much to it, but tasty. Of course, there might still be a secret ingredient.

I think imma make some this weekend.



Pete Zicato  Friday Jan 20 09:37 AM

Imma try this one sometime soon:

infinite monkey  Friday Jan 20 09:48 AM

Those recipes are so different. Imma try a combination of both.

Thanks Pete.

I had to look it up. I've heard of it a million times but had never considered it. It's opposed to 'dry' mustard.
