My dad found this longbow (and 6 others!) in the garage of some house he was helping a buddy clean out.  I took the bows to the local archery place, turns out they were all from the ~1950s (!) but they were all too old / frail / cracking to be stung and used… except for this one, which turned out to be handmade (!!) and just all around awesome. I have to wear a glove otherwise the feathers from the arrows slice your hand up (ouch)

#tbt That time we showed up on the front page of NYTimes’ Sunday Styles section for dressing up like PacMan characters and running around Washington Square Park. (“PacManhattan” — one of our projects at NYU’s ITP program, 2004). Btw, this is going to happen again tomorrow (!! 10 year anniv !!) as part of the “Come Out and Play” festival in Brooklyn!  I will not be dressing up as PacMan this time tho :) (at Washington Square Park)
