Ok, not a tower but an antenna. If you do not have satellite, even if you do have satellite radio, you better be listening to WFMU. A free form radio station that broadcasts out to the greater NYC area at 91.1 FM and online at wfmu.org. The station is a registered 501©3 non-profit organization, runs no commercials or underwriting announcements and is almost entirely funded by listener donations. Long revered for its unorthodox and eclectic programming, WFMU celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
The FCC granted them permission to erect a booster antenna in Manhattan, provided that work can be completed in 2009. In order to raise funds for our new antenna and to celebrate WFMU’s longstanding relationship with the arts community both in the New York area and beyond, the station will be holding an art benefit show at Printed Matter from December 6th to December 13th.
In addition to the editioned work currently for sale on this site, the show at Printed Matter will also include work for sale by the following artists:
Brian Alfred / Tauba Auerbach / Sarah Bedford / Nina Bovasso / Olaf Breuning / Tom Burkhardt / Ellie Curtis / Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber / Mitch Epstein / Jad Fair / Kyle Field / Matthieu Gafsou / Gelitin / Luis Gispert / Stuart Hawkins / Mark Warren Jacques / Chris Johanson* / Daniel Johnston / Mel Kadel / Mike Kelley / Terence Koh / Michael Krueger / Greg Lamarche / Christian Marclay / Richard Prince / Steve Powers / Andrea Robbins + Max Becher / Cindy Sherman / Casey Jex Smith / Geoffrey Todd Smith / Deb Sokolow / Swoon / Scott Teplin / Will Yackulic.
Random photo search lead me to a myspace page that lead me to someone who went to Comicon. Need I say more.
Cypress Hill, How I Could Just Kill a Man, 1991
After traveling around Peru, I have come to the conclusion that the Alpaca is The World’s Best Animal Ever. I can break this down to three points.
1. They make great pets (see above)
One of the highlights of the Scope Miami fair is at the booth of Western Canon / Symbolic. On the booth’s wall hangs a piece of Art and Rock n’ Roll History, Robert Williams’ Appetite For Destruction. You may remember this as the original cover for Guns ‘n Roses album of the same name but, the painting was executed in 1978, long before the music. If anyone can afford the $350,000 price tag, they should go ahead and buy this awesome painting. (Click for big) GNR cover after the jump.
Hopefully by the time this Daniel Libeskind designed condominium gets built in Midtown, I can afford to live there.
Colette. Well, that is what the signage read when I looked down onto it from my hotel in the Miraflores neighborhood of Lima. It turns out the store was not of the same caliber as the culturally relevant french boutique of the same name and font. After the jump, the guts of the Lima store’s operations.
Opening to collectors at an early 10 am on Wednesday, Joshua Liner Gallery wowed the groggy masses with work by Tomokazu Matsutyama (Matzu MTP), Aiko, and Kris Kuski. Both Matzu and Aiko were in attendance to talk about the grand scale and detail of their work. After the jump, some selections.
If you’re in NY and have the chance, stop by Gizmodo’s 4 day pop-up gallery at the Reed Annex. Gizmodo will be presenting the past, present, and future of technology. More information here.
Previewing this past Tuesday and opening to the public today, Shepard Fairey has taken over Jonathan Levine’s Gallery Booth at Scope Miami. Ranging from album covers to wall size installations, the work commanded a lot of attention (and red dots). After the jump, more images from the show.
Cypress Hill, I Ain’t Going Out Like That, 1991
Piazza San Marco in Venice December 1, 2008. Large parts of Venice were flooded on Monday as heavy rains and strong winds lashed the lagoon city, with sea levels at their highest level in 22 years. Ferry and water taxi services in the city were suspended and Venice’s mayor urged people to stay indoors. Tourists and residents struggled to get across the city over raised walkways. The Centro Maree, which forecasts water levels, said sea levels in the Adriatic rose 1.56 meters (5.1 ft) – a level not seen since 1986.

Not sure if I like the song but the video is interesting. Jerk it by Thunderheist.
