Back in the Day When They Used to Market Cocaine

 
Like everyone else with a Netflix subscription, we’ve been bingeing on Narcos. And while watching crazy Pablo Escobar pile up and bury money in Colombia is great entertainment, we got pretty curious about where that money was ultimately coming from. In 1979, with one in ten adults using drugs on a regular basis, the American consumer was on fire, pumping an estimated $420 Million per week into Pablo’s pockets. With almost everyone using, needing to distinguish oneself from the next person blowing snow became a status move and the paraphernalia market boomed. Here, we look at some of the advertising from the coke era between 1976 and 1981. Times, they have changed.

Roger Goes 2 DISMALAND

 

I have known about Dismaland for awhile. I was excited, curious and so many other things I won’t talk about. I was just happy to be attending an event that I was going to as a fan and a supporter. I didn’t have to work the door, deal with clients or even collectors—I could just have fun. And what fun did I have. BANKSY really has outdone himself AGAIN. Dismaland shits all over the art world without even trying. It shows what hard work and believing in yourself and doing things on your own terms does. Not only does BANKSY bring together a terrific group of artists old and new, he makes us look at their work in a different setting. This is the show that art needs, that galleries and curators are going to be striving to stand up to. Well, it ain’t gonna happen is the news I have for them.

An important thing to note is that no where through out Dismaland did I see BANKSY branding and marking things. It wasn’t “BANKSY PRESENTS.” Again another WIN.

Another important note is they did have pizza – and yes I got one and it was good. I don’t have pictures of that. I know, I suck.

Thirty Years of the Screaming Hand

 
One of the most iconic graphics in skateboarding history, Jim Phillips’ “Screaming Hand” was first sketched in 1985. 30 years after its creation, VANS presents a touring art show tribute to the artistic legend. We stopped by The Seventh Letter gallery to check out the inaugural stop and took some pictures of our favorite pieces from the exhibition.
