The Museum of Modern Art presents tall buildings. Gorgeous, gorgeous Flash presentation of the material.

Yes, it really is a wonderful interface, and some of the building designs are quite interesting. But I have to say that the "Fence of Teetering Junk on the Verge of Collapse" (#3) proposal for the World Trade Center is the most appallingly bad design for a skyscraper that I've ever seen!

All I care about is scoring a place to live at Landmark Lofts (#20).

I don't know if that's a great idea, Flea: Then you would be spending all of your time gazing out the windows at that great view of New York instead of working on your dissertation.

You know that... that... word is like a stake through my heart!

Oops, sorry Flea... I forgot that for a moment. I hope your sedative supply is well-stocked.
As for my, uh, "document", evening is here and I still haven't written a single word for it today! Woohoo! I have managed to make the towers of books on my desk even more dangerously high, though... They are starting to remind me of Skyscraper #3 a bit.

Hmm. Now you mention it, the double-stack of books (themselves stacked on a row of books) over my monitor have a precarious look to them. For some reason I have Barbour's "Capitalism in Amsterdam in the 17th Century" perched right on top.
Ok, I have switched that for Gansler's "Defense Conversion". Much better.
