Fecal Face has a nice interview they just posted with the artist they are showing opening this week, Josh Keyes. The show opens this Thursday, April 7, the same time our sisters at FIFTY24SF are showing KMNDZ. Keyes’ Magician’s Garden looks like it will be another gem from the very talented Portland based artist, with the work getting even more detailed. We are excited about this one.

Posted from The Citrus Report

You know, we outwardly scough at the idea of our Valentine sweetie doing a frantic last minute search for Valentines dinner and coming up with The Olive Garden and Red Lobster and Applebees. But really who are we to judge a bottomless pasta bowl, salad, and breadsticks being any less cheesy than Chez Panisse? From Salon.com: A report by a search engine consulting firm called Everspark Interactive reveals that right around 5pm Eastern time on Valentine’s Day, Google lights up like a pinball machine with searches for the following terms:

  1. Olive Garden
  2. Red Lobster
  3. Applebee’s
  4. Outback
  5. Outback Steakhouse
  6. Outback Steakhouse coupons
  7. Outback Steakhouse menu
  8. Chili’s

Read on to see how Edible Arrangements is trying to break into the top 10.
