• Steve Lambert took the mobile arrow sign from his solo show at Charlie James Gallery in LA and hauled it around California, writing improvised messages at each site. My favorite, at a sprawling cemetery: "You are still alive."

• The Turner Prize shortlist: Roger Hiorns, Enrico David, Lucy Skaer and Richard Wright.

• Magnum offers a slideshow of photos by Paul Fusco shot from Bobby Kennedy's funeral train as it traveled across America on June 8, 1968.

• Rob Walker runs down the many faces (or lack thereof) of online anonymity.

• As NPR's All Songs Considered dubs Wilco "the best live band in America," Grammar Police reviews the new DVD "Ashes of American Flags" and Pitchfork reveals the name of Wilco's new album (due out in June): Wilco (The Album).

• The Big Picture runs a haunting, odd, beautiful, sobering series on "human landscapes from above," and GOOD follows it up with aerial views of California highways, shot by Benny Chan and on view at the Pasadena Museum of California Art (through September).

• Swine flu poster: "Keep Calm and Don't Sneeze."
