Jason Douglas Griffin’s Getting to Know Someone : 80’s Babies at 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.”

it’s a ny thing

20-plus years of subway ads that are still a little odd when you stare at them long enough – brought to life in a trippy, yet quite direct, tv ad…

the perfect doormat


If you are like me, many times I have made it halfway to the train and screamed “FUCK”. This little rug will help avoid that situation. Available at Urban Outfitters for $18.00

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)

Shame when that happens, always remember.  Look at the Mom.

How to Mount an Elephant

I know I’ve always wondered how to do this. These photographs from the American Museum of Natural History are from early last century, and amazing.  See more in their Picturing the Museum photo collection

star wars the remake… kind of

I love “likecool” and I love this remake of the Star Wars trailer. It does pose the question, when will they remake the films with different directors and CW stars? As you know, “Remake” is the new black. It would be pretty cool if they remade “A New Hope” and told it from Darth Vader’s point of view. You could have someone like Ridley Scott direct it.
