evo morales

i mentioned this already on my personal blog, but jon stewart interviewed bolivian president evo morales the other night on the daily show. i thought it was pretty interesting. i like morales a lot from what i've read about him.

Bollock Brothers - Harley David

Perhaps one of the worst 80's dance jams, yet somehow compelling. I can almost smell the clove cigarettes.

DJ Jack Sloss

i dont know why mr. sloss hasnt contributed yet. word on the street is that he has a new computer and a strong internet connection now. for those missing his all encompassing groove you can download this four part live mix from last year from megawords radio on dan murphy's megawords magazine site. it is great.

hot chip - no fit state (live@glastonbury'07)

this summer while working on my show i listened alot to this mix will made me which included this performance. he is friends with a member of this band and asked him why he broke into temptation near the end. he said that since the bulk of the song is inspired by temptation it seemed right to give it its due. i suggested to will that perhaps when you play to 80000 people at glastonbury you cant help but feel like new order and so one of their songs just comes out of your fingertips.

tomorrow my new solo exhibition opens
thursday september 20th at fleisher ollman
gallery 1616 walnut street suite 100 there will be a reception that day from 6-8 the show runs through october 27th.

The Kinks-Days 1969

wistful fun with the best band

September 9, 2007

Hole - Gold Dust Woman {Live}

still the hottest girl in rock and roll and the one all the edgy teen pop stars try to be.

The Smiths - Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others (12.12.86)

the internet tells me that morrissey turned down a 75 million dollar deal to reunite the smiths (however ABBA turned down 1 billion in 1999) and that this video is from the last show that the Smiths ever played.

Comet Gain

if frank sinatra wants to point fingers and slander my beloved by calling it:
"the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear." when taking sides i'm with david 'if you're looking for me . . .'
comet gain is second in line after the clean in the art school band pantheon though talking heads are close.

Sinatra and Elvis

Elvis, back from the war, high on life? and Frank Sinatra who once said that rock and roll was "the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear." But here, everybody's having a laugh.

a little wednesday evening randomness

i came across this image while googling for pics of "clouds of smoke" for a painting i'm working on. apparently, this was the result of arson in australia. i dunno-- i thought it was interesting. i'm sort of preoccupied lately with the overlap between turmoil and beauty-- the way something can be impressive in form, and disastrous in content.
