It’s not Kate Moss Thursday yet but, you can play with Kate or Agyness Dean over at Refinery 29. To be honest it’s kinda creepy. Via

L-Vis 1990

If you’ve ever wondered what The Enablist’s dreams look like, this is pretty close.  Yes that’s right, I dream in awesome.  As always, fresh stuff coming out of Mad Decent.

recycled wood by Michael Ferris Jr.

michael-ferris

We just recently discovered Michael Ferris Jr., a sculptor who works in recycled materials, mainly recylced wood. The work is really beautiful, and at first glance we thought the subjects were real. He recently had his first solo show at George Adams Gallery in NYC, and he has a second solo show on the books there for 2010. Well done.

stock shock….

Stock Shock is a “Michael Moore” style documentary about the short selling manipulation of the stock market through the rise and fall of Sirius/XM. So, if you are wondering where your money went here is a good place to start.

I also found this commentary clip as well…. after the jump.

Catch a break

Honestly, we had forgotten that 20 x 200 even existed.  This print by Chris Ballantyne, Untitled, Tidal Bore (Surfer), helped put the online shop back on our radar.

tetro

I have been a fan of Vincent Gallo ever since I saw him in Buffalo 66. He has always stayed true to his indie roots. This new film, Tetro by Francis Ford Coppola looks like it will be his biggest crossover indie flick. Its in B&W, which is a plus. If the film is as good as the trailer……check it out.  In theaters June 26th.

Oh Snizzle! Summer Reading!

She’s ready to make her mark

Graffiti art. It’s bold. It’s thrilling. And it can get a girl into serious trouble….

Raised by her single mom (who’s always dating the wrong kind of man) in a struggling California neighborhood, Angel Rodriguez is a headstrong, independent young woman who channels her hopes and dreams for the future into her painting. But when her entry for a community mural doesn’t rate, she’s heartbroken. Even with winning artist Nathan Ramos — a senior track star and Angel’s secret crush — taking a sudden interest in Angel and her art, she’s angry and hurt. She’s determined to find her own place in the art world, her own way.

That’s when Miguel Badalin — from the notorious graffiti crew Reyes Del Norte — opens her eyes to an underground world of graf tags and turf wars. She’s blown away by this bad boy’s fantastic work and finds herself drawn to his dangerous charm. Soon she’s running with Miguel’s crew, pushing her skills to the limit and beginning to emerge as the artist she always dreamed she could be. But Nathan and Miguel are bitter enemies with a shared past, and choosing between them and their wildly different approaches to life and art means that Angel must decide what matters most before the artist inside of her can truly break free.

Or a double-team ensues…
