sweet love

I know M already talked about Jeff Lemire on her blog - but I think he needs to be mentioned again. If you aren't reading Sweet Tooth go out and get the first two issues. {Issue #3 comes out next week on the 4th.} While you are at the comic store get Essex County. You will not be sorry. He's a little bit of magic.

event today - Sejima@UCLA

Kazuyo Sejima, co-principal of Tokyo-based SANAA, designer of the Glass Pavilion at the Toldeo Museum of Art, the New Museum in New York, and this year's Serpentine Pavilion, will be lecturing at UCLA tonight. She rarely lectures and this is a great opportunity to see their work. Live.

a BIG disclaimer

Already on blog post #3 we start to wonder if a blog was a bad idea?
We want to take this time to say a few things before this blog really gets going.
The people who write this or contribute to it are not "professionals".
They are a bunch of artists that M. suckered. A small group of people:
who think to much
speak to fast
drink to much coffee
on occasion drink to much at Happy Hour
make doodles,prints, paintings
think short films are the way of the future
are heavily influenced by:
music,books, films,people, art,pianos,
accordions,tap dancing,bad jokes
designs, bikes, trains, walking
laughing,food, friends,family
life and are
way to opinionated.
Forgive us.
There will be times when the writings on this blog will be a chaotic mess
with bad grammar and spelling. Other times it will be like Salinger and Dylan formed a love child and that child is writing you a love poem. Most times though it will be a few lines and links of things we like and thing you will too.
