my new favorite super group Them Crooked Vultures

crooked-vultures

Them Crooked Vultures – my new favorite supergroup.  Josh Homme from Queen’s of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl from Foo Fighter and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones played their first live show at the Metro theatre in Chicago last night. If you remember Dave played drums on QOTSA self-titled release I stand corrected it was Songs for The Deaf, and in my opinion he should always play drums for Queens…

“One of the hardest-hitting percussionists of his generation, Grohl seemed even more intense in this setting than he’d been during his stint with the Queens, hammering his snare with both hands to create a massive backbeat, firing off rapid fire single-stroke rolls that made his single bass drum sound like two, and playing long and complicated fills between hi-hat, snare and rack tom without ever losing the songs’ propulsive drive.”

If you missed the show….. we all did, you can read more about it here and check out some really bad youtube video’s of the performance.

Not as random as usual since I searched the phrase ‘laser tag.’  It was worth it.

Shepard Fairey Tuesday: Graffiti Proof

Shepard-fairey-Studio-number-One

Apparently, after some sandblasting and the application of anti-graffiti coating, Studio Number One is becoming a buff spot.

Shepard Fairey was quoted through an email saying…

“When graff seeped into the raw brick it was very difficult to clean, the building is historic and I love and want to protect the brick. The city was never any help with removal. Graffiti is par for the course.”

Well, it is a nice looking building.

Check out Sienna Miller in the September issue of British GQ. They also have a video of her rolling around in the Grass, if you’re into that sort of stuff. BTW, am I the only one who did not know she was in G.I. Joe?

A Girl’s Bike Circa 2004


Five long years ago in the Summer of 2004,  Jason Oliver Goodman went out on his bike and documented girls in New York City and their bicycles. In this project he took photographs of Swoon, Claw, Aiko, and Monica Canilao, at a time before they were fully introduced to the internet and popular culture.  A book, published in 2008 by Partners & Spade was the concrete result of his efforts and is definitely worth a purchase for bike and girls on bikes enthusiasts.  You can find out more information from Goodman’s website and a sampling of the artists (plus a few treats) above.
