Travis Millard and Michael Krueger are opening a new exhibition in San Diego at Double Break tomorrow night, May 18. They are calling it Digging A Hole, Looking For Something, and if we lived in San Diego, we would go. “Double Break is delighted to announce Digging a Hole, Looking for Something, an exhibition of new work by Michael Krueger and Travis Millard. Coming to us from Lawrence, Kansas and Los Angeles, CA respectively, Krueger and Millard will bring new drawings, prints, ceramics and more. Both widely exhibited and admired artists, the two first connected at the University of Kansas and have long drawn inspiration from one other. Both artists explore the figure of the “common man,” displacing the mundane and the mythic from everyday life, weaving threads between past and present. Their search for the sublime in this densely hyper-visual yet vacuous post-industrial age is rife with humor, longing and discovery, as is apparent in this selection of new works on view at Double Break. The opening reception is Friday, May 18, 2012 (6-10pm).”
If we are going to celebrate the work of Michael Miller and his exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery, “West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures,” then we are going to celebrate 2Pac’s last studio album, Makaveli and the The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory and “Hail Mary.” Hard to imagine this man was only 26. Legend. Of. The. Game.
Recently, as I was parking my Mini in my garage spot in the Lower Haight, and gentleman, not unlike Larry David’s friend Leon on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” complemented me on my car but said he could never drive one. He said he needed to pick up ladies with a car, and a Mini couldn’t do that. So after me telling him that a short white guy can pull a lady with a Mini, and him probably surprised that I actually pick up ladies, he told me that a man needs a Corvette in order for a woman to pay attention to him. And this proves his point.
As a kid, we loved the Michael Jordan x Spike “Mars Blackmon” Lee commercials. They were staples, and it made Jordan seem like this incredibly special athlete. Little did we know he was hawking every commercial product thrown at him, but the Nike thing just had something creative behind it. Uncle York just released this Spiketoy, for all us grown ups around 30 who want to feel youth again. (via)
Well, wasn’t the Dolorean, minus the Michael J Fox effect, a major fail in the 1980s? Like Footloose, someone decided to recycle, sort of reimagine, and release an all-electric Dolorean. It is called the unreadable DMCEV, nd is planned for commercial production in 2013. Wonderful. There will be Hypebeast-reading rich kids waiting in line like they are buying a pair of Nikes. Oh wait, they still live at home.
Because there can’t be enough pressure backing up Michael Vick, you have to back up Franz. Mike Kafka, do you think your parents should have given you a more regal name when you were born? Like F Scott Kafka, or Ernest Kafka, or TS Kafka? You get one shot at this, you got to make it a money shot.
