Its been two whole days since I checked out the awesome but gross art at Silent Barn with Jared. I can't get these images out of my head. I took cell phone pics but they don't do it justice. The artist's name is Nate Hill. The picture here is from his website. Blehgh.
Joanna Newsom's Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie keeps popping up in surprising places. A few months ago, I was watching Great World of Sound, a great movie about a guy trying his damnedest not to become a sleazy music talent scout.
In one scene near the end of the movie, a woman sings an awesome rendition of Newsom's tune that made my throat lumpy. (But the best song in the movie is actually this one...)
The second spotting of Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie comes from an HSBC Bank ad that I saw linked to on Boing Boing today. That shit's killer.
Holy fuck, watch this... It make me want to travel back in time and have Bjork for my kindergarten teacher. I want her to teach me about television and about life, and about how I shouldn't trust poets.
I like flashlights, especially when they can turn into little creatures that play piano. This video is awesome. For more pretty looking things made with flashlights (and LEDs, sparklers, burning embers, etc.) check this out.
To the awesome graffiti artists and mural makers in Bushwick: Keep up the good work.
I especially this new piece that popped up on Central Ave. I walk by it almost every day. Its awesome. This weekend was the first time I crossed the street to see it up-close. I like all the little details.
I don't know if you guys take requests or anything, but if you wanted to make something like this near the Dekalb L station, I would love you even more.
