Love Letter to Plywood, by Tom Sachs

The King is Steel, the Queen is Plywood, and the sooner you know that, and the sooner Tom Sachs explains it to you, the more you will use plywood in your life. And yes, Mr Sachs, in conjunction with his Nike Craft collaboration and his Space Program: Mars show at Park Avenue Armory, he made an entire 7+ minute video on plywood. This is when you know you “have made it.”

The Good, the Bad, and the Thursday: “Herculean” studio version

Posted from The Citrus Report

A long while back, we used this section for a live version of the epic “Herculean” by a little band of Damon Albarn’s called The Good the Bad and the Queen. Now, we think that live version is good, but the studio version is one of the great songs of the past few years, just a beautifully soaring progression of post-20th century paranoia. Enjoy.

Artist depicts assassinations of Bush, Iranian president, Pope, and Queen @ Sao Paulo Art Biennial

Posted from The Citrus Report

Artist Gil Vicente knows how to get some attention, as his series of drawings of assassinations  of very symbolic world leaders, “Enemeis,” is causing a stir at the Sao Paulo Art Biennel. Already, the Brazilian Bar Association demanded “Enemies” be removed shortly after making its debut Saturday. We think killing Bush, the Pope, the Queen, and the Iranian President Ahmadinejad would get you noticed.

Posted from The Citrus Report

We go with the live version of Damon Albarn’s project, The Good, the Bad, and the Queen today, with subtle track “Northern Whale.” There may be nothing more intimidated than Paul Simonon holding a bass guitar like a gun. Its amazing. Enjoy your Thursday.
