This has been really fun guys, but I’m going to try something a little different. From now on, I’ll be over here. See you over there…
Quiet blog, busy life. This last week/weekend really flew by with events at the annual Time Based Arts Festival organized by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art -we saw Nature Theater of Oklahoma “perform” Romeo and Juliet and it was totally hilarious, lots of swearing and goofing around and a bunch of other stuff I like. Plus, the above pictured closing night dinner hosted by chef Jeremy Larter…I mean really, when do we miss one of his dinners? This one was *loosely* Syrian themed. And delicious.
And then we saw Pantha Du Prince perform his romantic techno, very deep and dark and heavy on the melody (more things I like). This was a good week.
Spirits are high around the house, M was named associate at the firm he works for today, and tomorrow we hit the road for some fun. This week: NYC and NJ. Next week, Lake Wallowa. Expect light posting while I tour around eating BBQ, swim in oceans and lakes, see old friends, dance into the night, visit with nieces and nephews (who will be chattering in German as they are now living in Frankfurt) and a whole host of unforseen cool stuff. Pictures when I return, but of course.
Vena Cava is having a yard sale. Looks like they got some good shit. (Like you expected any different.)
Matt Connors is one of my favorite artists out there. From his recent residency:
American painter Matt Connors who has occupied a recidency at Krabbesholm for two months during the spring term 2010 has arranged an exhibition at the end of his project in Four Boxes Gallery.
Matt Connors is educated from Yale University and works within a classic modernistic tradition starting from artists like Ellsworth Kelly, Kenneth Noland and Jasper Johns. His paintings are based on geometric shapes and pure colors to which he deliberately adds a sloppy handmade dimension.
The exhibition primarily shows small scale paintings, together with photography and sculpture.
You can see the rest of the work here.
New favorite album. There seem to be a lot of vinyl copies of this floating around, grab one if you can. I recently had a major vinyl score when M.Quiet found an LP copy of Sunrise in mint condition, only 400 made! It was not cheap. But so worth it. This one is more reasonable, at 22 beans. A worthy purchase, the music is divine. And dig that cover! Circle are making their way quite easily into my top bands of all time.
Lazy Post Day (because I am running out the door late for work and have no business blogging): This weekend we will be in San Francisco with Tim Sweeney (Beats In Space) and Mike Simonetti (Italians Do It Better) to DJ at the Triple Crown for the monthly BIS party happening there. As I mentioned before Tim is turning a new age this weekend…let’s give it all we’ve got! San Francisco, consider yourself invited (just don’t call me for guest list spots! Jeez!)
Also, I updated my website, which I have been wanting to do forever. I now sleep easy (no more cringing!) knowing that people are not checking out my old confusing/ not that cool one. (If my sister is reading this, I love you, you did a great job, it’s me not you.) Check it out HERE if you want. Hooray for Indexhibit.
See you after the weekend!
