Crappy Taxidermy we like


Stuffed Animals, who doesn’t love them?  You were brought up with fake ones when you were a child, so it makes sense to progress to the real thing when you’re grown up.  Here’s a look at some of our favorites from the site, Crappy Taxidermy.

Banana Head

My friend Morgan sent this ad over from Tokyo.  The Japanese are one step ahead

Chances of us driving this Lamborghini Reventón Roadster…

Well, that’s really up to them I guess.

I’d like one of those oversize matchbox versions of these, to roll around my non-existent desk.

This will be the next print I buy

shepard-fairey-jaws-print

Shepard Fairey’s Jaws Wave.  Float this in a nice white frame, shadow boxed, business.  The print is based off a painting Jaws Wave, which Shepard Fairey completed for the Surfrider 25th Anniversary Gala.

Poor Taco Bell

First your chihuaha dies, and now you have to pose and rip-off the whole Kid Robot Dunny vinyl thing.  I think they should come with the big people’s meals too. Check it.

Manchester: looking for the light through the Pouring Rain

kevin-cummins-manchester

Vinditto turned me on to this book that looks back at the Manchester music scene from the 1970′s onward.

“The volume features iconic shots of bands such as Joy Division, The Fall, The Smiths, Happy Mondays, New Order, and Oasis. Also featured are interviews with Kevin’s former colleagues Paul Morley, Stuart Maconie and John Harris as well as Gavin Martin’s interviews with Johnny Marr, Peter Hook and Mark E. Smith.”

Commisioned Train Graffiti

thalys6-450x300

Amtrak needs to step up.

“Thalys, the European company providing TGV trains between Paris, Bruxelles and Amsterdam, decides to customize one of the trains, inviting SozyOne (Bruxelles), Jonone (Paris), Zedz (Amsterdam) y Seak (Cologne). It’s one of the really few times that graffiti artists are allowed (and paid) to burn metal, it happened yesterday at Gare du Nord, Paris.”

Eric White’s LP


We missed the opening of Eric White’s LP last night at Sloan Fine Art, and are rather sad we did.  The exhibition consisted of 24 LP sized paintings that are quite hilarious and in the words of the press release, “become fetishized objects, incorporating messages that range from cultural commentary to personal demons to silly jokes.”  The work is on view until October 10th, don’t sleep.

titan maximum 09.27.09

Seth Green’s new show, Titan Maximum, premieres September 27th at 11:30pm. Make sure to watch it. Wired called it, “… it’s a sex-crazed, mecha-loving hoot.”

The premise is that a team of misfit space jockeys hits the skids after the government downsizes its warrior machine Titan Maximum. Pilot Gibson “Gibbs” Giberstein goes rogue and tries to annihilate his former team (along with the rest of the planet). Read a full brief  of the show here.
