hey dudes .
so , my buddy matt leines is having a show at the space on april 6th. he is rad, his art is rad , and you should go look at it.
the good thing about shows at the space is that they dont get popping until 9 or 10 . that would would give you more than enough time to go to the painted bride from 6-8 for the other show that night. mine.
you are hereby ordered to to attend amy’s show , friday at the painted bride.
that is all.
apparently , i no longer know how to post photos…
sorry bout that
this photo is from the the 1026ers opening at the ICA . many of the artists in philly, hell , the country , would cut off their ear to have a single painting hung at that place .this is the space’s SECOND show there.
i like this photo because they are all in it (well , most of them anyway ) in it , posing for the fans . they deserve the adoration. i never would have guessed that the this dirty,dungeon of a place , founded to avoid getting actual jobs , would become a philly institution .
10 fucking years. crazy. you should hug these people when you see them and say thanks.
stay rad , 1026 arch street .
on a less art related note ( but relevant due skate faggotry’s relationship to art faggotry ) : mike stein from traffic sent me a gold mine of a link…
it has some of the best video parts you’ll remember from when you were ages 16-20 .
there’s a youtube video of joe rose shooting a jumper . search “afbl” .
one of the comments is :
“nice jerseys, its obviously a very organized league. And i love how that guy that shot it is wearin loafers to play basektball. and the defensive effort by the man in the white shirt is second to none. ”
hey , man in the white shirt , andrew jones , they callin out your D !
there’s a show up right now with andrew wright and other shitty artists like me up at collette , in paris . i recommend everyone fly over and check it out. the food and wine over there is just delish .
or you could just check it out online :
all the names on the list are click-on-able , and you can see what everyone did.
i miss jay ! where are his ribald zingers ??? where’s he gone ?
i just thought i stop painting to mention a few things , inspired by this disgusting showing up in NYC where the boys in black are down 20 to the grossest team ever.
thing one : the way steve mix says the word “move” makes my stomach turn. he adds all these extra letters, real fast i can’t even spell it … it’s like , “MAEOOOVE ” . or worse , “SPIN MAEOOOVE” . ug.
thing two : scottie pipen looks like osama bin laden , sans beard . racist, you say ? ok , he looks like a easter island head. is that better ?
thing three : if i was a basketball beat writer in chicago during the nineties , i could’ve made all the other reporters laugh at the press conference following a loss ….
“why the long face, scottie ? ”
i hate basketball now . thanks sixers !
