A Visit to Globe Posters

Last week, Roger, Angelique, Caleb and I took a trip to Baltimore. We visited SHAKEN, ate crab balls at Chappie’s, explored the punk rock/graffiti den known as the Loft, and visited a strip club where the stage was made out of raw plywood (because there’s nothing sexier than strippers with splinters). But most memorable of all was our tour of the historic Globe Posters. Founded in 1929, Globe produced bills for almost every soul, funk, rhythm & blues or hip-hop act imaginable. Their designs, chunks of florescent colors and typefaces are now iconic, and it was a privilege to visit Globe before it is gone. Due to financial issues, Globe closed its doors last year, but co-owner Bob Cicero granted us a special tour of the shop and its piles of original posters, hand-carved wood type and vintage print blocks. These are probably some of the last photos you will see of this amazing place. Bob estimated that Globe will be gone for good within the next two months.

In the Trees: Twin Peaks 20th Anniversary Art Exhibition


Sad I missed this one, as Bob is still one of the only things that truly puts a scare into me. Tim Biskup’s painting of Laura Palmer is off the charts too, as well as David Lynch’s Map print.  Hell, the whole idea is amazing.

The Mondrian Los Angeles


Without a doubt, the Mondrian LA is the coolest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The rooms are super comfortable, the beds are nap inducing, and the space is equipped with this crazy oversized double-sided mirror in the center that both reflects your person and houses the tv, rotating on a pole to face you wherever you are. A lot of things in this hotel are oversized actually, and for big person like me it’s welcome. Leaving the room, the in-house entertainment factor is on point too. Kenzo Digital happened to be in town at the same time, so we successfully hit up the SKYBAR downstairs, and unsuccessfully tried to get a match at the Hollywood offshoot of the SPiN ping-pong club. There are good times to be had in the Mondrian LA, and it is definitely the place to stay if you want some upscale comfort with that exclusive, Hollywood shine.
