HULA

This HULA VIDEO is some serious inspiration. It looks like Nam June Paik made it and the clothes are incroyable! Can't wait to start wearing large donuts of fabric around my hips.Anyway, mientras en el rancho, I found this awesome artist who has a crazy archive of all sorts of sketches and drawings check it:

Rock and Roll McDonald's

So at lunch today Zach and I went to the "Rock and Roll" McDonald's for lunch. First of all, I don't know what it has to do with Rock and Roll and second, I don't know why they have a bunch of Barcelona and Corbusier chairs to sit in while eating greasy McDonald's food. Also, I am wondering if anyone can tell me what language this is: I believe it says, "Thank You" based on the other trash cans at the Rock and Roll McDonald's, but to me it looks like a universal symbol for syphilis. Gross. After lunch, we went to the Schneider Gallery which was ok...there was one artist who made some pretty cool shit--Thomas Kellner.

My boy Dan in Philly does amazing work. These resized dumpsters are just the beginning--check out his website solidsolutionstudio.net. Also here is a picture of him in this awesome skate park he took me to while I was visiting.

Style Blog--Keep it at the beach!

Sure it's hot when a girl wears a bikini top out on the street--but it just looks lazy when a dude wears a bathing suit around town--get some shorts buddies!

Woah!!!

Summer makes people crazy!

Driving around with the door to your mini van open with your 6 children inside is not a good idea. Oh wait--it's 90 degrees! So it's fine!

Egypt

Who isn't obsessed with Egypt? Here is a necklace I made--it matches the earrings I made last year. Love that it looks like somthing the X-Clan would wear. Also sorry it's out of focus and I am grabbing my boob. It's just how I do.

Theme Parties

Chicago is big on themes. Last week I went to a Christmas party. It was great. This weekend I am going to a "taste tripping" party and yet another festival (there are at least 3 every weekend no joke). Here is a pic of Susan as a hot Ms. Claus from the x-mas in july at marks--so funny.

Nice One Tracey...


Love this video by Tracey Moffat "Heaven". If you like what you see here look at more pics.

L.H.O.O.Q.




So I think this is a big deal. This is a new Marc Jacobs ad--it is a guy wearing clothing that is made for a woman. It is not really "gender-bending", it's certainly not drag-- it's not even like borrowing your girlfriend's jeans. This is woman's clothing as pure decoration--pure material goods--no women needed.

P.E. In Full Effect

So we got given passes to Pitchfork festival which included the most amazing show ever last night--Public Enemy performing It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. It was amazing how close we were thanks to the V.I.P. passes (see pics below) and there was free beer and burritos. What! I never thought I would see P.E. and they are one of my faves of all time so this was a great night...Uh!

Art: F Minus

So I'm at this second-hand store and there is a painting on the wall in the fitting room. It is hideous on first glance (photo 1) and then I look closer (photo 2). It is a mess of poorly applied paint with a shimmer sticker as the focal point. THEN I SEE THE PRICE! (photo 3) F MINUS!


Leg Show

Man there are so many f*ed up window displays in my neighborhood. This one is at the corner pharmacy where I get delicious Bible Bars.

Style AND Sign Blog!!

I can't tell if "belted flair pants" are a subset of "better garments" or if the only better garments are belted flair pants...either way it is just WRONG! Also--I wish their was a category called "worse garments" -- that would be a tasty rack!

Do they mean this?

Style Blog-Eeew!!

So out of all the nassy shit in the Village Thrift--these are the worst. These flops (which are like big enough for a dude) are decorated with rubber balloon ties on the thong. Why!

Collective Ethics

Here are two reasons why I watch Fox News: #1 They have this amazing thing called "Right or Wrong". They pose a question and viewers call in and vote. I would like them to pose the question..."is "Right or Wrong" right or wrong?"
Am I blowin'ya miiind?
#2 They have an news anchor named Byron Harlan who seems to have no tact or social graces whatsoever. Half the time he is laughing while reading the news which is disconcerting but somehow endearing. He often comments off the cuff--confusing the other anchors. Many times I have yelled out loud at the television--"what the hell are you talking about?!" or "I can't believe he said that!" which is fun. Check out the entry on "byronism" in the Urban Dictionary.

Stormy



Ended up in Millennium Park the other day with Zach and like 2 seconds before it started to monsoon I took this picture--love this thing--it's like a giant blob of mercury.

Welcome Hunters

Hey my friends Robin and Jason have an amazing store in LA called Welcome Hunters and they just started a blog--

Punk Rock Part 2--Outdoor Edition!

Went to this awful "blockparty" yesterday, which was like some punk rock kid's fantasy complete with makeshift skateboard ramp made of a rattan ottoman. DANGER! Lots of funny people watching and fabulous fashion choices like this dude who is wearing a vest with a faux lace color and pockets!! Also he is holding what appeared to be a small goat.Then there was this other dude wearing a pair of shoulder pads, leather Mad Max gloves and TWO bluetooths earpieces. He was the by far the oldest dude there--like probably 60 and had what I am assuming were prison tattoos all over his arms. I got a pretty crappy picture of him:

Let's Straighten It Out

My current favorite song (by O.V. Wright). Thanks Zach!

Style Blog--For Serious?!?

Ok THIS IS NOT OK. Familiar with Acne Jeans? Familiar with Lanvin? Well--THIS HIDEOUSNESS is what their synthesis looks like. Ah-hem! I am stunned (and a little late commenting I know) but this looks like a joke! What's up with that chinzy-ass medallion necklace? It looks like Sean Jean or Rocawear (neither of which is bad in it's own right -- but doesn't cost $2,000). Even the relatively good stuff (see below) looks like petite mom jeans with an raver expander strip on the side. Why the! You wanna see hot denim looks?! Livin' the dream! Note the WIDTH OF THE MAN'S TROUSERS!

Afrimural

Dudes I cannot capture this whole mural but it is pretty sweet. I call it the "Afrimural". Which reminds me of Afrirampo one of the best live shows I have ever seen. They rule.
