Rich Jacobs’ Move 19 at Fifty24SF

Our friend Luke Martinez dropped by Rich Jacobs’ Move 19 the other night and brought back some pictures and words. Enjoy…
Rich Jacobs opened his curated show Move #19 at Upper Playground last Thursday night, showcasing an unusual assortment of artists who are tied together through Jacob’s personal admiration for each. Listening to him talk of his longtime friendships with artists such as Jordin Isip and Melinda Beck, his childhood fascination with 80’s skate photographers Pete Diantoni and Mofo, and his drive to give his friends Andrew Scott (owner of Needles & Pens) and Brian Flynn (Founder of Super 7) some artistic attention of their own, help to bring the individual aritsts together in the show, and actually give a great insight into the curator himself. own work in the show is highlighted by a piece by his father, a drawing done from way back in the day. Its another glimpse into the curator himself, a man who is at a point in his life that he is more interested in showcasing his friends and loved ones, in bringing his own inspirations to light, than about highlighting
himself. It’s admirable, and its a bad ass show. Check it out and you’ll walk away knowing a bit more about Rich Jacobs, and about those artists that have influenced him, and continue to influence him.

Puff!, the Best iPhone App ever

puf-i-phone-upskirt-app

Leave it to the Japanese to be one step ahead.  I did not know this but, the iPhone is sensitive to blasts of air (through the mic) as well as touch, which brings us to this app called Puff! One blow on your iPhone and a burst of wind lifts the cute Japanese girls skirt, creating endless upskirts for your entertainment.  Easy, seamless, wonderful.  See the videos after the jump.

Jason Douglas Griffin’s Getting to Know Someone : 80’s Babies at Leo Kesting

DiagramoftheSupremeUltimate-leo-kesting

Our homie Jason Douglas Griffin opens a new show tonight, 7 – 10pm at Leo Kesting in the Meatpacking District.  Be there, we will.

“The raging 80’s- a time of sex, white lines and financial excess, gave way to a generation of twentysomethings worlds away from their baby boomer parents. With a title seemingly cribbed from a John Hughes’ film, “Getting to Know Someone: 80’s Babies” explores the intersection of self and city in a generation freshly bereft of their cultural icons.

80’s Babies continues Jason’s dialog with the 1980’s generation. “These works are elaborate profiles of the subject and the city in which they live,” states gallerist David Kesting, “With the incorporation of found materials, Griffin’s paintings capture the relationship between the city, the viewer and his subjects.”

Peanut Butter in Recipes from around the World

I was randomly on Jif’s website earlier, and came across all of these recipes using peanut butter from around the world.  Some of these sound so good…

African Beef Peanut Butter Stew

Chicken Peanut Mole

Hawaiian Meatloaf with Peanut Glaze

Now, I need some pretty girl who like Peanut Butter to teach me how to cook all of these things.

(The image above is of a man making Peanut Butter in Haiti, unrelated to Jif at all)
