Richard Serra, Keith Haring… and Jeremy Fish

Pink Bunny elizalO Richard Serra, Keith Haring... and Jeremy Fish richard serrra public art Keith haring jeremy fish

What a two week stretch for Jeremy Fish. First, he just released his Spring collection of superFishal gear with Upper Playground, and then his public sculpture in the Lower Haight was named #3 in the entire city by SF Weekly. Who came in first? Keith Haring. Second? Richard Serra. So now it goes Haring… Serra… Fish in the world of art. Not bad, Mr. Fish. And yours didn’t need a corporation saying okay.

Weakness Wednesday: The Fresh & Onlys “Waterfall”

Even though this song came out in 2010, our appreciation for it and the San Francisco-based Fresh & Onlys grew in 2011, and this could be our favorite song of the entire year. These are the reasons why SF is the best place on Earth… our music scene has ramped up again…

Well this is the best thing we have seen on the Internet all year. A hero, Matt De Lanoy, turned the greatest television show based in Orange County, “Arrested Development,” into a full Lego set. He created the entire series for Brickworld 2011. And there is a stair car. And Franklin.

Buster Posey, you make a grown man cry

ba giants 0499806209 Buster Posey, you make a grown man cry san francisco giants buster posey

The news that our San Francisco Giants have perhaps lost Buster Posey, the star catcher and heartbeat of the defending World Series Champions, for the entire season has incredibly brought an entire region of the country, the 5th biggest market in the United States, to a complete quiet standstill. We weren’t in SF when this happened, but we hear grown men (and one of our moms) was in tears.

Get better, Buster. We need you for years to come.

First and Final Friday: The Pixies “Doolittle”

Posted from The Citrus Report

There really isn’t anything better than the opening of the Pixies’ seminal Doolittle album. “Debaser” is one of the great songs in American Indie Rock, and triumph of songwriting and literate lyrical content. End it all with “Gouge Away,” and you have not only one of the best albums of 1989, but of the entire canon of American Indie.

An Infinite Voyage and Everything in Between: A Traveling Art Project from Miami to Los Angeles Part III

Posted from The Citrus Report

foggy freeway in texas

We left New Orleans, drove straight through Houston and, eight and a half hours later, landed in Austin at the crack of dawn. I’ve been to Austin two years ago, coming here for the first time to attend the music festival SXSW. Arriving with the Infinite Wanderlust gang this time on a whim has allowed me to enjoy it at a much more laid back pace.

We drove through the entire town, exploring the different neighborhoods and on our last drops of gas, made it out to a small town in the hills surrounding Austin to Saltlick. This restaurant immediately felt cozy and welcoming. The place was packed with large parties of large people sitting on wide seated rustic picnic tables all sharing numerous plates piled high with meat and bones. The pit where they cook the meat is also in view of everyone passing by and we were drooling as we were guided to our seats by our hostess. Our breakfast was a giant plate of barbecued ribs, sausage, brisket, coleslaw, beans, mashed potatoes, jalapenos, pickles, onions, bread, and pecan pie with ice cream. Everybody should go here if they get the chance. A lumberjack would be satisfied.

our breakfast in austin

Afterwards, we parked along the shores of the Colorado River near Austin Lake. A quick walk along the pathway led us to a dock with canoe paddling for rent by the hour. Even in the middle of December, the weather was perfect;  Austin offered us the best days of perfectly clear skies and a warm day on the entire trip so far. The sunshine was bright and a cool breeze was blowing through the fresh air. Sherry wanted to take a walk around the lake since we had been in the car for the last couple days, even sleeping in it too, sharing shifts of driving. There were lots of people strolling around, running, biking and walking their dogs. Jason brought his typewriter and was writing stories on a picnic bench. Saelee was laying down on the dock and was reading a book she got at the Austin Salvation Army. I rented a canoe and went around the lake for a while. Being out in the middle of the cool, dark emerald water was relaxing until I had to pee and the sound of the oars lapping the water wasn’t helping. So that cut my ride short, but it was meant to be because as I brought the canoe back onto the dock, I saw Jason and Saelee and some other people surrounded around a black swan.

magical black swan

Black swans most commonly reside where I come from in Australia and they’re a rarity here. I had chat with the man who fed the swans regularly and was their unofficial caretaker. He said that black swans are endangered and he’s not sure how this one got here. He thinks some rich person paid lot of money for it and it escaped. Our new feathered pal was especially friendly to everyone that day. We were petting him and he was comfortable enough to poop three giant green turds the size of breakfast sausage links. After the lake we needed to find some wifi to work and went to the Whole Foods flagship store which is the biggest most enormous Whole Foods I’ve ever been to. Almost as big as the swan’s turds.

Art Garfunkel’s website contains year-by-year listing of every book he’s read since 1968.

Posted from The Citrus Report

Not only did he stand next to Paul Simon and sing beautiful, beautiful harmonies, but Art Garfunkel is also a great Poet and Bibliophile and on his website www.artgarfunkel.com he lists chronologically every book he’s ever read, including the entire Random House Dictionary.

And how fucking good is this song?

Yes, That’s Michael Jackson on new Michael Jackson song

Posted from The Citrus Report

Apparently there is a bit of wonder going around the web about if that is really Michael Jackson on his “new” single, “Breaking News,” that was released on his website today. It really just sounds like Justin Timberlake.

And because it sounds like JTim and about 30 other artists who have copied late 1980’s MJ their entire careers, Michael’s label is saying “yes, that is the King of Pop on ‘Breaking News’.”

The song itself: boring, but not awful.
