CACTI! (and frogs and restrooms)

so...i was told that i don't post enough (which is true). So its time to get my lazy ass off the couch and onto the inter-web!!!

We went to LA a few weeks ago for the Tee Pee Records Manifest Destiny Festival- which was of course, beyond awesome. 9 straight hours of sludge, drone, drudge, mush, mind-melt, fuzz, mess, slow growing mold, and of course HEAD BANGING.....haha and of course the all powerful Obama was watching over it all (literally there was a huge cardboard cut-out of Obama in one of the stage wings- watching over the whole spectacle)

anyway- we also got to see nature..and i took lots of pictures of cacti.
We love cacti! we even have our own cacti in our rooms (Tiff you should take a picture of the hairy one and post it!)

A shroud of magickness

fo, deb and i went to a friend's show on saturday in williamsburg and then decided to go wandering down by brooklyn heights and the promenade. i'm not really a picture taker so here are the few i did take when i felt like it.

it was a strange surreal night with the foggy weather on friday - the river, the lights, the cobblestones, old brick buildings, absurdly quiet streets and a hazy sequence of events involving bear sculptures, naked ghosts and secret buildings housing secret doors leading to secret places...

fo and deb from atop the playground

the doors to the rectory

fo fo fo!

That party that didn't happen

We made a flyer for the black angels / warlocks after-party a friend put together that for some reason didn't happen, but here it is anyways...

I caught the warlocks at mercury lounge the evening before with a really excited group of fans. I had no idea the mustache drummer and the bassist weren't in the band anymore. Anyway, the show was alright and I was just excited to see them at mercury after such a long time. Bobby just seemed really happy to be playing in the city. They definitely gave a much better show at southpaw the following night though. The lighting was better, the sound was louder and they ended with moving mountains!!! Bobby is my new hero with his brian jones haircut!

Back from the dead with one foot in the grave

So we've been busy with the shithole that practical life can be. Still are, but we're taking some time to put these photos up. Some are from the exhibition, some are from our graduation ceremony. I have the photographer's site lying around somewhere and I will put it up when I find it. (Thanks Brandon!!)

There are some bizarre ones that I guess our department decided not to put up on flickr, but I will get my hands on those soon. And our giant book of tiny characters too! Will put those up on the site soon.

Anyway, busy busy busy... with my thoughts.


And I'm putting these in because... I think this is actually the very first time I've had a picture taken with a dog. And not really, cos my tech-unsavvy boss was trying to take a picture but ended up taking a video instead so... it's dorky and lame but here's me and max. just cos.

RIP Albert Hofmann - synthesizer of LSD

I remember my French-Canadian English Lit teacher Mr Brian Quan getting us to analyze Lucy in the sky with Diamonds. I was 12 and this was Singapore. Don't think I was in any position to get it... Hmmm... Good times.

Anyway, this video is the shites. Got it off the post on BV.

Makes me miss my dear chemist friend up in Boston who often recounts the debauchery she partook in that is a chemistry lab + really genius and bored out of their fucking minds MIT kids.

DIY. That's the only and best way to go.

New stuff is up

Thanks to my largely self-diagnosed OCD, the first half of the clothing section is up and running. The t-shirt section and exhibition photos will be coming shortly.

I suppose I am on some bizarre form of rampage from today's events with the thief. There is something strangely peaceful and melancholic though, working through the night by yourself, and listening to Jim James wail away softly. I'm probably somewhat just a lil more than a casual listener, but I do still dig this very much:

And people ask me why I don't care for most human beings.

Because they disgust me this way!!!

So... it's down to the last part of installing and setting stuff up for wednesday. we are both just working away non-stop in the gallery space (and missed record store day)

there was no question that we were going to find time to make both the dead meadow shows this last week amidst everything else that was going on. yeaaaa! made it out to maxwell's on tuesday after much frustration with the damn path train. great small show, i was expecting it to be ridiculously crowded, but somehow it wasn't. got a good spot right up front next to the amps just behind all the 19 year old gear heads who stood religiously (still) in front of the pedal set up.

then deb's brother came into town and we brought him along to the music hall show which was pretty damn fucking insane too. saw quite a few familiar brooklyn faces there and ran into a friend or 2. i was going nuts nuts nuts nuts.

i think i melted thrice over.

ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! dead fucking meadow!!

Senior show postcards

So the senior show coming up in a few weeks requires individual postcards from both deb and i, so we knew ours had to somewhat go along because our thesis is together. so the main guideline was:

we were both going to have red rhinestone studded barb wires pouring out of our eyes into each other.

so we took some black and white pictures, went to the art store and got some supplies, each did our own thing in our own rooms (albeit a peek every now and then), and here's what happened...

I was listening to the mammatus record outside, doodling, scanning and photoshopping. then this one song came on and i wasn't quite fully aware since i was deep in work. at this point, i was fiddling around with the brain guts and hand reaching out part of the card and then i realized the music was just totally in sync with what i was doing and feeding me all these feelings! low heavy bass notes, slow pounding drums and a heart-wrenching roar and ughhhhhh, i am listening to the same song as i am writing this and i think i just wanna toss myself into the sea and mush into foam!

i looked back on my card just now after it was done and was telling deb how i got this whole weird human/deep sea fish creature prowling the ocean and sending out her evil fish minions vibe from it even though i did not consciously set out to make it that way.

and which brings me back to the name of the song i was/am listening to (i just repeated the song again).

"The Coast Explodes"


p.s. deb was blasting motorhead.

The Horrors She Is The New Thing

i want to do something like this!!!! and i think we will AMAZING

just plain awesomeness all around as you read bellow, this week has been a pretty fucking awesome week in music for us.
the witch/titan/graveyard show on wednesday was i have amazing new music to listen to (namely witch) and also a new crush...ahem ahem.
riding on that high (and the one from just watching Step Up to the Streets!), we went to another show last night at market hotel
and saw these are powers, old time relijun and some other great bands- the venue is an amazing space..lots of moshing again, we didn't quite join in but we were definetly going nuts jumping and just wriggling out to fun fun! although it did take the assistance of a local crazy woman to help us find the place...somehow by looking at us she new exactly where we were going...hmmm wonder why? other news! i just wanted to post some amazing lyrics that i've had on my stickies for awhile:

the chelsea girl is in black and white... her golden hair in her hand
wires are running down her face and her garden is full with no room for you

Had a man in Black Mountain, sweetest man in town,
Had a man in Black Mountain, sweetest man in town;
He met a city gal and he throned me down.

I'm bound for Black Mountain, me and my razor and my gun,
I'm bound for Black Mountain, me and my razor and my gun;
gonna shoot him if he stands still, and cut him if he run.

" the USA...and i get my brains blown out"

great to be back

so i went off to maine for a week and it was nice being by the coast and in the woods but it feels the best to get back after a 12 hour journey with no plans made for the evening and then realize that I had an awesome show waiting for me. all i did in maine was stuff i didn't have time to do in new york anyway - buy music (old dead meadow stuff) and toys (two playmobil figures and i'm majorly regretting the fact that i didn't get the toy accordian)

i made it back in time to catch witch, titan and graveyard at luna lounge. of course it was raining as it does everything we/i head out to luna.

deb and i missed the previous witch show due to bad timing/bad weather/sickness/crap and i'm so glad i didn't miss this one. also managed to catch graveyard (from sweden) and they were rocking it. the singer had that type of traditionally good classic rock voice which i don't hear too often. i was also happy i manage to catch titan doing more of their psych/prog/metal thing since the last time i saw them, they were very very metalled out.

deb bought the really sweet gig poster that looks something like this, only with a dark crimson red in it too. we can't stop ogling at it like how we can't stop listening to 'seer' by witch.

witch closed with seer and people went nuts. some dude in the front was majorly headbanding and hair flipping about 3 people's worth of space and then some kids decided to start moshing, which i am totally down for as long as it doesn't involve me. i was right on the sidelines to witness the shit when it happened at a cheeseburger show at the knitting factory. that was fine, i love seeing people going nuts. but i was right smack in the middle of this when it happened. 180 lb dudes and i don't belong in a mosh pit together. they wake up the next day vaguely remembering prancing around to sweet tunes, i wake up with major bruises. yep.

i think i was pissed off at one particular point in time when some guy crashed really hard into me that i literally kicked his ass - kicked.his.ass... between.the.butt.cheeks.semi.up.the.crack

i don't think he felt anything though... hmmm. gotta love those damn moshers.

Steal Your Face

He moves so slowly but he's coming after you
Nowhere to hide and not a thing that you can do

You're on his mind, you're on his mind

You're gonna leave the human race,
You know you can't stand the pace
Gonna sink without a trace
He's gonna steal your face

Don't try to run, he's gonna find you day or night

Just sit and shiver and be ready for the bite
You're on his mind, you're on his mind
You're lost in hostile space, gonna feel the cold embrace
You're in a state of grace, he's gonna steal your face

Nowhere to run you know he's never far away
Knows where you are and he gets closer every day

You're on his mind, you're on his mind

And I'll bet that he can't wait
You know he's gonna take the bait
Gonna be on your case
He's gonna steal your face
He's gonna steal your face
He's gonna steal your face
He's gonna steal your face
