The Writing On The Wall

Out of print since 1976, Roger Perry’s The Writing On The Wall has been called “the original book of London graffiti.” Featuring more street sayings than street sprayings, it’s a fine look at 1970’s London counterculture.

Lunchtime Laughter

Glad somebody finally did this, although it could have been done with some better music… Without further ado, some dude running around NYC giving high-fives to people hailing taxis.

Art From the Skillet

In Kiss My Aura, his latest show at Slow Culture in Los Angeles, artist Travis Millard has taken his pancake art, covered it in resin (not syrup), and used the plate as a frame. Oh, he also made some rad drawings too.

“This was never wet before”

creek-california

A random benefit from last month’s earthquake in Napa Valley? Water. Lots of it. Seems all that shaking in the earth opened up fissures in the rocks that have allowed massive deposits of groundwater to reach the surface, turning once parched land into pockets of green. At one creek north of Vallejo, an estimated 200,000 gallons of water are flowing daily down the tiny waterway into the bay. Like all good earthly things though, the surplus is bound to stop. As one hydrogeologist said: “There is only so much water in there. As the water table lowers, the water flow diminishes. It’s like a bank account. You’ve just reached into the bank account and borrowed some money, but the spending spree will eventually end.”

Openings & Parties: Promiscuities

This past Wednesday we co-hosted a party at Le Baron with Selectism for Jonathan Leder’s new film Promiscuities, starring Amy Hood. As one would expect with a sexy film, the crowd that gathered at the downtown club was nothing short of stunning.

brazilian-town-of-women

Noiva do Cordeiro is a small town in southeastern Brazil that is populated only by women, most of whom are single between the ages of 20 and 35, and apparently desperately in need of a man. The Brazilian beauties would love to find bachelors to court and potentially live with them, but “first they (the men) need to agree to do what we say and live according to our rules.” Sounds just like marriage to us…
