I am obsessed with the banned Calvin Klein ads (click here for youtube link). I never saw them when they came out...I remember the print ads being banned, but the TVs spots must have been pulled before they went on the air. They male voice is super creepy. Love it. And love the "moshing". Adorable.

Last year around this time I attempted to sell a lot of books to this old hippy bookstore in Gloucester Mass. The guy totally ripped me off but I was desperate to unload them so..I took the hundred bucks he gave me and took this amazing book from his store titled NATIVE FUNK AND FLASH. This book is amazing. Here is another link to some images--sorry my scanner is weak, but you get the idea. This publication is very of it's time and has some hilarious written bits and insane characters who make beautiful and freaky artwork. Check it!

Inspiration! Here is a great scan from the Russian Flowers Book that Mark gave me last year. A photo of excited hands (non-Hitler related) by Jon and an awesome logo from the best band ever. Let's keep the PMA through the shitty cold weather!!

Went to the Boston ICA with my parents last weekend. The Tara Donovan exhibt was really great. The images on the web are ok, but her sculptures and installations really need to be seen in person--check them out if they come to your town's contemporary art museum.

Just went to the Peabody-Essex Museum which is ok...there was a lot of freaky ceramics like this pair of dogs(?) etc.There was also an photo exhibit about Moko the Maori traditional tattoos which can be seen here in this pic of a woman from the 1880s and in one of the photos from the show. Amazing!!

So remember Sarah Palin? Yeah neither do I. Well I thought it was SO FUNNY that she owned a tanning bed. What a cracker. All these "tanning professionals" were predicting a surge in the market if she was elected. But for real I think I might do the same thing if I lived in Alaska. It is how I get through the winter here...I can't believe it has already begun. Brrr!

Went to Milwaukee this week with Ross and Mrs. Rachel Walker-Walsh to go to thrift stores and buy cowboy boots (the funnest thing ever) and we stopped off at the Milwaukee Art Museum which is AMAZING. It has a G.D. kinetic roof and is just beautiful inside. LOOK!!

My boy Dan is in town for the SOFA show which was really crazy and big. He got some funny press which asks our favorite question: what is art anyway? One of the artists I really liked was Wendy Walgate who's ceramics are to the right--AND lots of these amazing moccasins--BEADWORK 08!!
