No and also why?
Listen, we know we have been back and forth on this whole reboot and remake thing. Sometimes we're willing to give them a shot if they do something interesting that the original doesn't. Other times, we know better. This is one of those other times.
It Belongs in a Museum!
Starting at Los Angeles' Gallery 1988 West
this Saturday, June 14th, "Icons" showcases the work of Dan Kuhlken
and Nathan Goldman
, collectively known as DKNG. The technical talk is that "icon" refers to the object in a show or movie that distills its essence—like the DeLorean in Back to the Future
, or the barge for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
. The non-technical talk is that this series of art is really damn pretty, and more people need to do Beavis & Butt-head

Architectural group BIG
has given a large, glowing Valentine
to the city of New York
with their BIG♥NYC
project. It is, quite literally, an enormous heart in the middle of Times Square
made from 400 transparent rods that form a 10 foot-tall cube. Lit by LEDs, a large red heart resides in the center of the big cube which can be affected by visitors. Simply pressing a nearby plate will activate the heart, but linking together more people make it beat faster and brighter. Hopefully people will keep some hand sanitizer around, lest this "heart"warming display become a disease vector. See a video of the installation, after the break.
