Sidney Lumet Watch: Lifetime Achievement Follow-up

scadthumbSome of you might remember that last month my good friend Rebecca11222 found a Lifetime Achievement Award (as seen at left) issued to none other than Sidney “Serpico” Lumet from the Savannah College of Art & Design in a patch of Greenpoint shrubbery. If you haven’t you can read about it here, here and here. Well, Mr. Lumet hasn’t stepped forward to claim it yet (and as a result this item currently calls a skeleton wearing a lei as a neighbor) but this most unusual turn of events has not gone unnoticed by a reporter for SCAD’s student newspaper, District. Tandy Versyp writes:

…Rebecca Poole, a stage actor and teacher of the Alexander Technique, was walking her dog, a shih tzu named Fred Sanford in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint when she noticed the award hidden in a row of bushes next to the sidewalk.

Just rescued my dog from a junkyard that’s where he got his name, Poole laughed. So I watch everything he does when I take him out. He was sniffing something at this three-point intersection and was about to pee on it, when I saw it. My first thought was, “What the hell?”…

What the hell, indeed. To read the rest of this article click here. Do give it a read. It is tremendously entertaining.

  2. This is all so silly and random.

    My plan is to contact all the other SCAD award winners from 2005 and try to get them to give me their awards (You hear that, James Franco?!! I want your SCAD!)… a friend of mine pointed out that if I acquire enough of them, I can call my apartment a “museum” and register as a non-profit.
