Remembering Buzzwinkle, the drunkest moose in Anchorage.

“the massive bull was standing rigid, knees locked, with his wide-set eyes fixed in an inscrutable expression. A long strand of small white lights tangled in his antlers attested to some careless twig noshing in Town Square earlier in the day. The most obvious sign of life was the cloud of vapor venting from his nostrils with every deep exhalation. He was blotto, and he knew it.”

Taco Truck Confessions

Everyone loves tacos. That’s just a fact of life. So it makes sense that the best place to find the largest cross-section of interesting people would be a taco spot at night. It’s with this in mind that L.A. Taco presents a unique look at Los Angeles through interviews with people waiting to get their delicious food.

Moving to the Spirit of Warhol

sponsored

What would Warhol do? That question was the genesis for Absolut’s most recent nightlife collaboration in celebration of their new Warhol Edition bottle. By joining together Leif Elggren, an artist who works with paranormal sounds (EVP), A-Trak, and light artist Schnellebuntibilder, the premium vodka brand threw an Avante-Garde Art Party in New York City that can only be described as “one-of-a-kind” with partygoers dancing to one of the most unique soundtracks ever created. Using the sound waves originating from Warhol’s spirit as the foundation, the three artists worked simultaneously in collaboration where Schnellebuntibilder’s light installation interacted with A-Trak’s music which was mixed with Andy Warhol’s words that were picked up by Elggren’s EVP machine. On this night in the true essence of Warhol, Absolut displayed that anything is possible through creativity.
