Crappy Taxidermy we like

Chances of us driving this Lamborghini Reventón Roadster…

This will be the next print I buy

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.

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.

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.”
