Yes, we all thought spiders were evil, carnivorous creatures who wanted nothing more  than to suck the life out of others, but in Central America the first hippie spider has been discovered, spreading peace, love and…. vegetarianism?!

The Bagheera Kiplingi is the first spider known to man who eats mostly plants! (Maybe “vegitegan” is the right term for this spider). It also lives in harmony with other spiders of its kind. The things you find on wordpress blogs and “Science Daily.”

"Bagheera Kiplingi." The world's first known vegetarian spider.

Yesterday’s New York Times had a brief article about an upcoming exhibit we are all excited to see! Clayton Patterson, a longtime resident of the Lower East Side is exhibiting his photographs of documentation of his neighborhood that he’s snapped in the past 5 years. The exhibit is called “Clayton Patterson: L.E.S. Captured.” According to the NY Times Patterson considers his work historic documentation despite the fact that his photos are not more than 25 years old because of the rapid change in the neighborhood. It is no secret that the “Lower East Side,” while still vivacious and happening, is not the same as it was just a decade ago. Rents have been raised, graffiti has been removed, and new people have moved in. From what I imagine, the “Lower East Side” that Patterson has been able to capture is very similar to parts of Brooklyn right now, like Bushwick. I’ll be great to see the original neighborhood from Clayton Patterson’s photographs, how its evolved, and think of what may become of Brooklyn!

Clayton Patterson: L.E.S. Captured” is now on view at ALIFE  PRESENTS (a gallery for select artists and brands on Rivington).
