Oh Man, I just got back from seeing Sleigh Bells at Soho and they were the Tits! I fell in love with their debut album Treats and it has become my soundtrack. I love listening to it while I bike to the beach on my sunny days off. So hearing just a little part of one of their songs takes me back to so many awesome days. I knew the set would be short as they only have one album, so they didn't do an encore, which is perfect. I've never been a fan of encores. I'm actually amped right now, which is so rare after seeing live music! When bands play too long I leave the show tired, kinda lame. Their laserish light show was the perfect compliment to their bassy screamy anthems. I'm listening to them right now when I should be in bed. Love them, heart them. Got my A machines on the table got my B machines in the drawer Got my A machines on the table got my B machines in the drawer Got my A machines on the table got my B machines in the drawer
Should I be Alexis Krauss for halloween? We look similiar-ish. I was going to be Kat Von D so I could carry around a fake tattoo machine with an ink pen in it and draw boners on everyone I meet. Oh the tough decisions one has to make when they are single and have no dependents.
Here's live footage from the show, shot by my friend Erin:
I feel like that everyday of my life so it was nice to see it in writing.
On to something that will hopefully be amazing.
If you live in LA, I have plans for you
Sunday October 24, 2010
I'm planning on doing some volunteer work as well as vendor during the concert afterward. So this week I'm framing some of my most popular and colorful designs for people to purchase with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.
When a bunch arrived for me the other day from all over the world I decided to use them to make fabric.
Here they are, first the original postcard then the fabric:
The more I look at this the more I want a dress made out of it.
I need to find a clothing designer!
If you design clothing email me:
dolphinandcondorfabric at gmail dot com
On a slightly different note:
I was working on my next batch of post cards to send out. I like to check the profiles of the people I'm sending cards to to see what they like, etc. This one girl is really picky about what kinds of postcards she wants to receive. She has an entire list of what is ok as well as a special section that says she absolutely does not want handmade cards or cards with cows or goats. I couldn't help myself, I had to make her a hand drawn card with a cow and a goat. So It's a contour drawing, mostly blind. I love how the goats back leg looks like a giant dick!
Hopefully she can take a joke!
Today I've been listening to
Coast to Coast AM (as always, it's an addiction)
Which has a really interesting guest on who has written a book about his life; mostly revolving around the haunted house he grew up in. Very interesting.
They held a contest to redesign the GAP logo and, well, it rocks.
Here are my top 3 favorites:
Design by Min Hye Lee
Design by Ernesto Alonso
Design by Chris Reynolds
This makes me think of the release of the 2012 Olymipc logo.
Which I liked!
I was in design school in Chicago when this logo first hit the scene. Everyone in my class hated it but me. Yeah, it's kinda weird. So what? It got everyone talking, it's hard to forget and it looks alive (it has energy). So the cheese stood alone, I defended it. Way to have some balls London 2012!
I can't write about all of this without including the tropicana debacle.
I still can't see what people hated about it. Really, I just don't get popular opinion most of the time, which is why I'm a little concerned that I agree with the hating of the new GAP logo. :( Am I losing "it"?
It seems like most people want to drink this:
And I want to drink this:
Kazimir Severinovich MALEVICH
I've had to do some soul searching, but yes, my heart still races for the Dadaist, Constructivist, Futurist, and Bauhaus movements.
There has to be an artist out there that paints Thomas Kinkade paintings with all the buildings burning down. Internet search:
