Made of concrete and steel.
They would be great for a disco doll house.

Technology design student
A background in electrical engineering, computer science, and music, along with a spot at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program coalesce to create his current fascination with three-dimensional persistence of vision displays. At TED 2007 he will demo his latest piece, The Orb, while sharing a peek into the production process of his forthcoming fully three-dimensional spherical display."

I found these adorable toys at the MoMA store. They are finger puppets with magnets in the snout, so they look like they're kissing. Really cute, and a blockbuster at the MoMA store. Anyway, I'm giving a couple of these puppets to my friends, who are having a Chinese New Year's Party, and they're going to perform with them. Can't wait to see it!
At the Good Morning America set in Time Square Studios, they are exhibiting all the Oscar award trophies. I am such a tourist.
Here's the info:
11am to 7pm
The actual award ceremony is on the 25th and starts at 5pm. I skipped it last year, but just watched Good Night and Good Luck, which was about a journalist, Edward Morrow, covering McCarthyism, and Capote, which was pretty heavy and well-acted. This year I want to watch Babel, Volver, and Notes on a Scandal, Little Miss Sunshine, The Departed, and An Inconvenient Truth. In Los Angeles, people would have Oscar parties and hold pools on the nominees.
Just visited this place, and they sell cupcakes and cookies with academy award nominees' faces on them. I couldn't take a photo, and when I went back to get a Judi Dench cupcake, they were all out.
They have great butterscotch bars, and after 6pm, everything goes half-off. Macaroons are delicious, as well as their Coconut and Red Velvet cupcakes. A tough competitor to Magnolia Bakery. "No lines" are a plus. "More pricey" is a downside.
