If there is one thing to do on Saturday this would be it. Ryan McGinness returns to Deitch for some mind-blowing art action.
Amazing video, check it out
Real Sugar, not that hi-fructose corn syrup junk. Looks like we’ll be making the trek to Williamsburg to get some of that good ish.
I like suffle on the iphone, it’s like a pull at the slot machine to see what your day is going to be like. Today’s pull, and a really good one. The clash Straight to Hell. There are good songs and there are great songs. I guess what I am trying to say songs that take you away, make things better. A cold morning walk listening The Clash….
This is nice, however I personally would have liked to see some Dollar Bill signs on it. $$$$$$$
The Wall Street Journal has a good read on Branding The Recovery, but aren’t we still falling?

Everyone has a day job. Check out Jody Rogac’s work.
Public Enemy, Can’t Truss It, 1991
Kofie’s work is super-fresh.
Very cool viral promotional videos for Yeah Yeah Yeah’s new album. Just a heads up, this is a great album. We are refraining from posting anything illegal that we may or may not have, it’s worth the wait.
I always like the way Shepard Fairey’s work comes off in animation, look out for prints in the future.
“The first global ‘Vote Earth’ television commercial will feature Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ and artwork by Shepard Fairey with animation by Syd Garron, voice over by Cate Blanchett and production by Curious Films.”
I think ‘Earth Hour’ will be one huge makeout session.
C-Monster has put together a great resource outlining bars nearby to the Art Fairs. We would like to add in one from our stable if you’re at Volta.
The ultimate in Korean Fried Chicken, Restaurant Forte Baden Baden, 28 W. 32nd St. 2nd fl. So good.
Internet years are like dog years, each one is equal to at least 5. Anyway, we just got a heads up and some words of praise from Design is Kinky. I can remember when I first heard of them and saw their site and work, it feels like decades ago. They have this event called Semi-Permanent, it is actually pretty permanent. Semi-Permanent has been around for 6 years, with 17 events in 6 cities throughout 4 countries with 109 speakers…. etc etc you get the point. If you have never heard of Design is Kinky or this event check it out and if your close by, go to the event. Here is a bit of info.
“Semi-Permanent is a design event. It consists of a conference and side events which include exhibitions, competitions, workshops and parties. It’s a week long celebration of all things design. Graphic Design, Film, Art, Illustration, Web Design, Photography, Visual Effects, Animation, Graffiti, Motion Graphics, Stop Motion; all these things and more. Semi-Permanent explores the diverse and exciting design world bringing together exceptionally talented artists and designers to speak at the event.”
In a recent interview with Glenn O’Brien for Interview Magazine, Supreme founder James Jebbia gives a little back story on the popular Artist series skate decks that Supreme has been producing. One great quote in regards to the customers buying the decks stuck out to me because it is very true,
“It’s actually easier to get the art crowd, because they’ll buy anything if they think they can make money off of it.”
This leads into Supreme’s latest series by Damien Hirst which will enter stores and the internet later this year. Based off of his Spin Series paintings, I wonder how he feels that each individual deck will only be $68? Welcome to 2009 Damien.
