nbWorldwide Staff Photographer Discovers Evidence Of Intelligent Life At The Beach

On a recent weekend retreat to the Southern shore of Lake Michigan nbWorldwide's staff photographer stumbled upon this cluster of beach stones. Currently we are consulting experts who so far believe that the only possible explanation for this phenomenon is a landing of intelligent extraterrestrial beings.

When questioned about the formation, Dr. Beth Hooven, faculty emeritus at Notre Dame University in South Bend Indiana, exclaimed "Have you seen what people at the beach have been reading this summer ? It's completely impossible that any of these sunbathers have enough intelligence to invent something as unusual as this particular pile of pebbles."

Artists Take Tent For a Stroll Down 57th Street.

We've heard of walking a dog through an art fair, but taking a canopy for a walk is a bit eccentric if you ask me. (Deloris Fortuna's famous black sprinter is pictured in the background, in the path of the walking canopy).

nbworldwide Announces Live Blog Feed.

nbworldwide Corporate's recent investment (2.99 US) in the Blogpress app allows us to blog live with our iphone, vastly expanding coverage of the national art fair scene.

News categories will include:

1. "Under The Canopy." Up to the minute reporting of what's going on in our booth including portraits of our favorite customers.
2. "Neighborhood Report" Hourly update of what's happening in the booths around us.
3. "You Call This Food?": What's edible and what's been sitting in the sun too long and will guarantee you'll come down with a serious case of food poisoning?
4. "Fair Weather". Is it windy, when is it going to rain and are we scared to death that our booth will be torn to shreds by a micro-burst and the EZ-up next door?
5. "Gossip". Who are the stars of the show of whom everyone is jealous? How in the world did the jury pick that, what were they thinking? Did that artist photoshop their images for Zapplication?
6. "Shoe Shots" Photos of patrons footwear, tackling such serious questions as: Why do so many art fair patrons wear shoes that are too small for their feet? We'll provide on the spot analysis of the phenomenon of "Toe Hang".
7. "Dollar Discussion " Are artists selling anything (besides the guys who sell stuff on a stick), and why do they come back year after year, are art fair artists hopeful idiots?"
8. "Exit Strategies" How in the hell are we going to get out of here at the end of the show?
9. " Made in USA or What?" Who's actually having their artwork fabricated in third world countries?
10. "Celebrity Sightings" Up to the minute reports of the appearance of "The Man With the Cockatoo", exceptional art fair outfits, sightings of Oprah, members of the Obama family and Hollywood celebrities. (Does anyone know the Cockatoo's name?)
11. "Dog Patrol" Snapshots of canine fashion at the fair.
12. "Promoter Purgatory" Here you'll view creative use of space where promoters place exhibitors to enlarge their fairs: featuring artists booths in parking lots and loading docks nowhere near the show, amazing exhibits installed on 70 degree inclines, spaces that are only dry at low tide, the booth next to the park's dog-poop can, and legendary wind tunnels where thousands of canopies have been twisted and mangled over the years.
13. "Madison Art Fair on The Square Subversion Special" At this years fair, participants scattered incognito throughout the crowd will attempt to invert the direction of fair patrons movement around the capital from clockwise to counter clockwise.
14. "nbworldwide Best of Show Awards" We pick what we like the best at the show. To hell with the jurors awards, all they provide is a ribbon and some money and an invitation to return to the show next year, we provide priceless publicity on the nbworldwide blog, which would you pick if you had a choice?

(Watch out Huffington Post, here we come.)

nb Worldwide Celebrates Our 17th Anniversary With Miele White Star VC #1.

nb Worldwide is pleased and proud to celebrate the 17th consecutive year that we have been working with Miele Corporation's compact powerhouse of a vacuum cleaner affectionately known as nb Worldwide VC #1. This dynamic machine has been capturing dust and debris in our house and studio for seventeen consecutive years with only one short two day break at the local vacuum repair shop for badly needed cord replacement surgery. VC # 1 has proven to be among our corporation's wisest long term investments. The daily cost of the use of this machine when ammortized over a seventeen year span is approximately 2 cents per day, which we think is a real bargain.
