These are just some bullet points (my new favorite thing) from Shepard Fairey’s extensive blog post
We have a bunch of friends in this show, so stop by and show some love.
Our friends at Material Interest pointed us to this trailer for Marilyn Minter’s new video installation which will go up in Times Square April 1st.

“An 18-year-old has secretly painted a 60ft drawing of a phallus on the roof of his parents’ £1million mansion in Berkshire. It was there for a year before his parents found out. They say he’ll have to scrub it off when he gets back from travelling.”

Supertouch Art is my normal go-to for all things Lance Armstrong, but in the midst of all this breaking news, the website is silent. What gives? ESPN got to the point and filled in the road to recovery.
Marc Ecko points us to Jarmusch’s 5 rules of Filmaking. These can be repurposed to most things in life and his quote of Godard “It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.” is pure wisdom.
BTW, Mystery Train is one of my favorite movies of all-time. After the jump, the trailer for Jarmusch’s upcoming film The Limits of Control.

Keep this show on your radar. McGee, Templeton, Pettibon. Curated by Aaron Rose. Bring this to NY.
“This exhibition serves to focus on the recent artistic output by three underground heroes from the worlds of skateboarding, graffiti and punk. Even though each of these artists has now firmly established themselves in the world of contemporary art, there are still common themes between them that hail back to their subcultural roots. It could be described primarily as an overriding sense of concern for and representation of the downtrodden, the outsider, the anti-hero. McGee’s sad, sullen faces and neon-colored geometric panels reflect the archetypal image of man overpowered by omnipresent media, Templeton’s portraits of suburban youths perfectly illustrate the harsh alienation of teenage life, while Pettibon’s drawings and paintings focus sharply on issues of personal/social unrest, life during war and the constant power struggle between a man and his destiny. The fact that this is the first time an exhibition has featured all three artists in such direct proximity to each other will be an interesting statement not only on each artists’ individual style, but also the unique similarities that run through all of their works.”

Media Temple helped crash our server today (Thanks Guys!) and the site will be slow until we can transfer everything over to a new host. Please bear with us during this time. We’ll still update like mad, but site access can be limited due to such horrible disappointing hosting.
Parra x Arkitip x incase = Parra Plays, a cool iPhone App for monotonous subway commutes and idle time hanging out on a corner looking cool.
It’s like a touch screen version of Whac-A-Mole.Â Touch the clouds before they pop! Sounds easy enough, right? Keep playingÂ¦
Loosely based on Simon Says,Â but with a twist. You think you can break 100? Yeah right!

NY Mag has put together a brief, mouth-watering slideshow of double cheeseburgers.Â Their so hot right now.
Art Crimes put up a nice gallery of Gaze’s work from the 90′s this month. His letters and colors were sick.
The company that has provided Yankee Stadium with all of their sod for around the past 40 years has decided to brand the turf, Yankees Sod, to sell to the public. Smart Move.
