Because it’s always a good time for a snort laugh it’s always a good time to read Brian Droitcour’s gallery reviews on Yelp. The one on the Cindy Sherman show at Metro Pictures is pretty priceless.
RIP Ada Louise Huxtable, purveyor of the kind of clearly written criticism that takes real tubes to write.
From the Annals of Pirated Architecture: Designers in the city of Chonqing are building an exact copy of a Zaha Hadid structure already under construction in Guangzhou. (@petitemaoiste.) 
Incredible photo essay on Buzesco, a farm town in Romania that is home to clans of wealthy Roma. The architecture and the interior décor are pretty dang amazing.
A way of seeing: Joerg Colberg has a thoughtful essay on what the act of photographing has become — with a nod to crankypants Guardian critic Jonathan Jones.
The Walker has put together some nice year-end round-ups by artists. I enjoyed the Year According to Alec Soth. Have to agree on that Zadie Smith essay on joy — it’s pretty gangbusters.
An interesting piece about how giant escalators are being used in urban planning in Medellín. La Paz could totally use these.
Andrew Russeth takes the wind out of Nate Lowman. Art Fag City follows up with a thoughtful response. 
Dave Hickey is getting a lotta ink for saying he’s leaving art criticism — such as this interesting, very sympathetic profile in The Chronicle Review.
D-Zine’s nail art. I’d tried to get my fingers did by him at the NuMu but didn’t RSVP in time. :-(
A Pew study looks at the ways in which digital technology has permeated the work of arts organizations — even expanding the definition of art. (PBS Art Beat.)
The nautical roots of contemporary tattooing.
A good combo: Junot Diaz in conversation with Bill Moyers.
A Twitter-controlled roach cyborg.
