Whether you know him as AW STUE, or simply just STUE, there was no one in San Diego that could touch this guy in 2006. With the help of some mutual friends that we shared, I had the pleasure of interviewing him a few years back while I was writing a photocopy zine called Local Hero. The photo above was taken by Vincent Santos and was used for the layout of the interview. Visit his site to download a PDF copy of the interview.
There are songs that always seem to sneak their way back into my iPod shuffle. An easily enjoyable (or depressing) selection by New Order. Such a perfect song on a 2AM summer night. Written by Ian Curtis; but you already know that. And Radiohead did it too.
Next Saturday’s bill at the Casbah will be legendary as they host the 2009 Official Street Scene After Party. Cat Dirt Sez put me on the official poster [shown above] of the show. This night will also mark as Art Fag’s West Coast tour w/ Crocodiles, Graffiti Island and PENS.
Today is the birthday of artist/painter Neill Orje. Painfully mixing each gradient one by one, his work takes on a surrealist approach to a linear shaped world. While studying art in San Francisco, Orje exhibited his work at the de Young Museum, sharing gallery space with renown British sculptor, Richard Deacon and Germany’s Gerhard Richter. Neill’s work definitely inspires me to stay creative. Check out more of his work here.
Heavy Hawaii’s Sleeping Bag. Tap your feet, whistle and buy a yo-yo. Then get a red sweater, walk to Nature’s Express and eat gluten free potatoes. HH play the Che Cafe on Friday, August 28th. They also have hats for sale.
Big names, small venue. Billy Corgan will play at the intimate Che Cafe on the 30th. I will try and get tickets for this show… which will probably sell out fast. Corgan will be playing alongside Spirits in the Sky, a band formed in tribute to the late Sky Saxon who passed away in June. [thanks to Cat Dirt Sez]
Probably the most comfortable shoe I’ve worn in a very long time. CTS by Converse Skateboarding [Cons]. Disregard the purple socks.
And then I found this photo; which I had shot at GM’s installation at Nike’s AD21 space in Tokyo. Too bad I couldn’t take any photos inside.
