Watch this book art video right now!

Wow… New Zealand’s Book Council  is officially the best in the world just because they commissioned this video (do we have a book council?)

I saw in the comments on youtube, randomly, that they don’t have crows in New Zealand? I’m sorry!

Interesting tribute to Obama: sculpture in flames!?

November 5, 2009

Liu Bolin, the artist I mentioned a couple of weeks ago for his photography where he painted himself to become invisible against the city backgrounds, is apparently also a sculptor. Man, I have mixed emotions about this one: it sure feels disrespectful, with racist overtones, to me. I’ll leave it to someone else to argue the “on the other hand,” as I don’t think this is the most tasteful statement Mr. Liu has made. I’m surprised no one’s talking about this story.

"The Jesus" from The Big Lebowski Licks His Bowling Ball on Black Velvet, A Custom Hand-Painted Tijuana Black Velvet Painting from Indignico Inc. by Indignico.

I like the Big Lebowski, but that’s just, like, my opinion, man.

David Lynch’s new project gets odd, and the coffee in Twin Peaks really is damn fine!

May 16, 2009

I just got back from the diner from Twin Peaks. That’s a damn fine cup of coffee. We had the cherry pie too. It’s in North Bend, Washington if you are ever near Seattle. I really wanted the autographed Log Lady photo.

Anyway, by now everyone knows David Lynch has been at work with Danger Mouse and a member of Sparklehorse on an album/photography book project  called Dark Night of the Soul. Very limited release, and so far it’s been mostly word-of-mouth news on the project. What would have been awesome will now will be an odd affair: It’s reported that the album was scrapped because of a record label dispute. So apparently the book will now be released with a blank CD stating something like “For Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will.” For now, NPR has a stream of the album, which has input from the likes of Frank Black, The Flaming Lips and Iggy Pop on it. Really, why does anyone sign with a major label anymore? Buy DIY.
