A nice introduction to MesoAmerican art. I am a huge fan of this type of art. I think a trip to the museum is coming soon.

First big snow of the year about the 4th snow overall. A pretty impressive snowfall. It has been snowing all day and I would say there is about 14 inches of snow so far and it is still going. Funny thing is they are saying it is going to be in the 50's this weekend. Gotta love Colorado.

Welcome to the San Francisco branch of the Cardboard Tube Fighting League (CTFL). The CTFL was created out of a desperate need to better train and arm citizens with cardboard tubes. While many speculate that our fore fathers, when drafting the constitution, originally intended the second amendment to refer to fire arms, there is now a small group of non-academics who believe that they were more likely referring to elite militias of card board tube wielding ninjas. While this training often takes place during childhood, it is discarded by adults who remain uneducated about the importance of such practices. The goal of the CTFL is to provide organized cardboard tube based events that help spread cardboard awareness. Among these pages you will find information, history, and event listings for duels in the San Francisco area.

Jack Kerouac’s 1957 novel, “On The Road” made him a literary rock star, but the fame led to his unraveling. So three years later he headed to a friend’s cabin in California to battle his demons and his alcoholism. The result was a second novel, “Big Sur.” The real life events behind the book are documented in a new film and CD, both called “One Fast Move or I’m Gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur.” Jay Farrar, leader of the band Son Volt, puts the words from the novel to music on the CD and joins us from St. Louis to talk about it.

A former schoolmate of mine, Kris Kuksi has some new works.
Two of my latest works featured in this exhibit are "Anglo-Parisian Barnstormer" and the infamous "Churchtank Type 7C". This exhibit will last from October 13th to February 10th 2010 and is curated by Art Donovan.
Inside Karen O is a Wild Thing - as singer for the Grammy-nominated Yeah Yeah Yeahs, her wild thing is in your face, vulnerable, obnoxious, tender, exciting... a self-proclaimed "spazoid." To Oscar-nominated Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze, however, Karen O and her music possess something of a child-like innocence, a guileless charm that put her exactly on the right emotional wavelength to sonically capture the film, be it a tender moment or a wild rumpus.
To compose the music, O enlisted friends and fellow musicians she believed had a musical intuition that would bolster her intent to marry sound to vision. Dubbed Karen O and the Kids, these include Tristan Bechet (Services), Tom Biller (co-producer with Karen O and member of Afternoons), Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), Aaron Hemphill (Liars), Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee), Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes), Oscar Michel (Gris Gris), Imaad Wasif (New Folk Implosion, Alaska), Nick Zinner, (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and an untrained children's choir.

I was fortunate enough to get some work in this great book of poster art by Juxtapoz.
The third book in an ongoing series from the seminal West Coast art and culture magazine, Juxtapoz Poster Art focuses on the art of screen print posters. In the past 10 years screen printing has ballooned in popularity and a new class of artists has emerged. These artists stepped away from the psychedelic posters of the '60s and developed their own aesthetic-incorporating everything from hand-drawn type to found objects. Their posters have become sought-after collectors items for art and music fans alike. Featured artists include: Jason Munn, Michael Motorcycle, Little Friends of Printmaking, Jesse LeDoux, THINKMULE, Paul Insect, Seripop, Brandy Flower, Aesthetic Apparatus, Decoder Ring, Nick Butcher, Rocky Grimes, Tyler Stout, Tim Gough and more.
Vintage Pixels is a large database of historical, high quality, free-for-use images which allows people to share their archived photos. You can download images for print, or use in graphic design, as well upload images to add to the ever growing album of vintage images. The best part - it's all free!
