The truth about Tim Taylor’s Home Improvement clothes

When he’s not teaching audiences how to spruce up their home on Tool Time in a button-down shirt, dress pants, and tie, Tim Taylor lounges around at home in less formal threads.

Tim Griffin to Depart The Kitchen After Nine Years as Director

Tim Griffin is leaving The Kitchen after nearly a decade as the director and chief curator of the experimental New York art space. During his tenure, Griffin continued and expanded the storied institution’s focus on interdisciplinarity and oversaw a program featuring Chantal Akerman, ANOHNI, Charles Atlas, Gretchen Bender, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Ralph Lemon, Aki Sasamoto, and Tyshawn Sorey, among others. His term also led to new initiatives including the hybrid talks series “The Kitchen L.A.B.” and electronic music series “Synth Nights.” Griffin—who began helming the nonprofit in 2011 after a seven-year run as the editor-in-chief of Artforum, where he is currently a contributing editor—will shift into an advisory role at The Kitchen by year’s end; he has accepted a visiting professorship in the art history and English departments at Ohio State University in Columbus, where his wife, Johanna Burton, directs The Wexner Center for the Arts.

Home Improvement stars Tim Allen and Richard Karn land new show called Assembly Required

History Channel has announced that Home Improvement stars Tim Allen (Tim ‘the Tool Man’ Taylor) and Richard Karn (Al Borland) are set to reunite for a new show called Assembly Required.

The show “will spotlight the best and brightest builders from across the US, at their home workshops, as they compete to breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing,” a press release said. “This new series will push each contestant to their limits while testing their ability and ingenuity to not only rebuild it but to build it better.”

Tim Allen added: “Let’s face it — we’re living in a throwaway society. We buy, break, replace … rinse and repeat. Whatever happened to repair and rebuild?

“There are some people who unfriend, unfollow and dispose of anything that offends, annoys or breaks – so I’ve created a show to remind people of the satisfaction
