I’ve been invited to participate at Igloo’s 7th Anniversary Exhibit & Bazaar. I remember the first time going to Igloo about 8 years ago and Gary gave me one of his Green Lady Shark Prints (which I still have to this day!). Gary Benzel had always played a huge influence on the way I see design. Its truly an honor to be a part of this shops’ deep history. This show is also a going away shindig for Arik “Eternal Ruler” Acosta and Steph Walker before they go to “far away places”. So come swing by, see some art, and pick up a few items.
So this week is Comic-Con International (fuck that, its still the San Diego Comic-Con to me!). Still going 40 years strong, its pretty rad to see all the super-nerds go out and try to one-up each other. HBO’s True Blood held an open bar last night at Rock Bottom. Lando Calrissian was there and he definitely knows what I’m talking about.
To celebrate the summer’s official arrival after an extended June gloom, I decided to share whats been circling my iPod lately. I know there’s no media attached to the list, but if you can’t buy them from the artists, I’m sure you can find them fairly easily online. The list consists of a selection of tracks between Best Coast, Pearl Harbour and Fantastic Magic.
Best Coast – Up All Night
Best Coast – Sun Was High (So Was I)
Best Coast – In My Room
Pearl Harbour – Lost @ Sea
Pearl Harbour – Sunburn
Fantastic Magic – Flowerbeds
Fantastic Magic – Jam & Yima
Fantastic Magic – Imminent Grove
This song by LA’s Pearl Harbour reminds me of my childhood summers watching Saved by The Bell during their Malibu Sands Beach Club episodes. This Friday, Pearl Harbour plays a FREE SHOW at the Whistle Stop along with the Beaters and Best Coast. Head to Gorrila vs Bear to hear “Lost @ Sea”.
I went and saw DJ A-Trak earlier and all that I have to say is…’wow’. Awesome set. If you are ever in Downtown San Diego, Voyeur is defiinitely a must. Thanks to Johnny and Farley.
