To Thrash

Brian Brannon of JFA signed this cover of Thrasher Magazine for me back in the day. This may be the hight of my obscure street cred. Or is all street cred based on obscure connections?

Mrs. Holt

Back in the 80’s I found the denture casts marked Mrs Holt among the unwanted things of earth. I rescued them and applied them to this armature and created a mouth only puppet, lovingly referred to as Mrs. Holt.

How not to steal, subway version

Use turnstiles to enter and exit the subway.

If you need the subway gate, don't hold it open.

Board through the front door on local buses and have your MetroCard ready.

Buy your ticket before you board and keep it throughout your ride on SBS buses.

Follow, and upward

I saw this poster hanging in the Gallery at a college art show last week. Gustav Klutsis (January 4, 1895 – February 26, 1938) was a pioneering Latvian photographer and major member of the Constructivist avant-garde in the early 20th century. He is known for the Soviet revolutionary and Stalinist propaganda he produced with his wife Valentina Kulagina.

Have you heard my Song of the day?

Have you heard my Song of the day?
Well it is real and has all kinds of great songs on it. I only post truly great songs. Occasionally terrible songs make their way in somehow. 

Mostly they are YouTube links with Spotify links added.

Song of the day . . . .

Of course I am the kind of person who will sport a pocket protector. This is super nerd territory. And Algebra Suicide is one of my fav bands of all time. Great Chicago band!
