  • A style trend piece we can get behind: Sol LeWitt yarmulkes. [Tablet]
  • France doesn’t have enough poor people who support President Nicolas Sarkozy. Sarkozy hired some fake laborers to attend a press conference. [France 24]
  • Even though SOPA’s dead, there’s still another bill to stress out about: The Research Works Act. This act would restrict “public access to scholarly material and research.” So far, the Modern Language Association and the American Library Association have expressed public opposition to the bill. [The Chronicle of Higher Education]
  • Ja Rule thinks prison “is amazing.” While serving time upstate, Ja Rule made friends with the former executive of Tyco and traded stock tips with other white-collar criminals. [Gothamist]
  • In other prison-related news, at least one opportunistic curator had a studio visit with Ai Weiwei just a few days after he was placed under house arrest from the Chinese government. [Magasin 3]
  • Mike Kelley’s old band, Destroy All Monsters, has plenty of raw film footage online. [YouTube]
  • One of the strangest one-liners I’ve read recently: “The Museum of Modern Art is now in the entertainment business.”  What museum isn’t? [Artforum]
