:: Borrowed ::

Borrowed Time is a book project that friend Tony Larson is a part of. "Borrowed Time is the story of Taylor Devlin. We meet him as a man who has it all - a nice apartment, a woman he loves, and a job as a journalist that allows him to travel around the world. When an assignment comes down to take a trip through the Bermuda Triangle, it seems like a piece of cake. What awaits him is anything but."

"..If the employees he's bribed at SeaWorld can't come through for him on the sea lion tip, Yamamoto always has the fallback of driving up to San Francisco's Pier 39 with a refrigerated truck, waiting until the wee hours of morning with two assistants, and plugging a sea lion in the skull using a night-vision laser-scope, and a silencer on his high-powered rifle.." ..giraffe toungue, rhino balls, puppies, and penguins, humans too.. "One day I hope I can cook whole Mexican," sighs Yamamoto.. its all there..

:: Thursday ::

Ok, so there are way too many shows to check out on Thursday. i still don't understand why everyone has an opening on the same night. Trying to spread the crowd out or something? Anyway, here are some shows that we think you should check out.
KIM COGAN <-- there aren't that many younger artists working in oils these days. Well, there are, but not that many who do work like Kim does. Check out his solo show Still City at White Walls. Read an interview we did with Kim awhile ago. 835 Larkin St. 7-11pm.
49 GEARY <-- as every first Thursday of the month the established galleries of 49 Geary open their doors for a couple hours (5:30-7:30pm). It seems that the best shows down there have been photo shows as of late. Check out Nicholas Prior @Robert Koch and Idris Khan @Fraenkel Gallery... There are bound to be other treats down there. So go and make the rounds.
PHOTOGRAPHERS MICHAEL GARLINGTON & CHRISTOPFER IRION @111 MINNA <-- The exhibit will include Garlington's latest collection, 'Positively Sixth Street,' which captures the faces of the forgotten denizens of San Francisco's skid row... Christopher Irion designed and constructed a portable PhotoBooth in 2003. He set it up at Farley's, a local cafe, in 2004, shot 500 portraits all of which were exhibited there... 111 Minna. 5-2am.
YUMIKO KAYUKAWA & JOHN JOHN JESSE <-- at The Shooting Gallery. We're big fans of Yumiko. In fact, read an interview we did with her last year... Should be a great show! 839 Larkin (right next door to White Walls). 7-11pm
Yumiko Kayukawa

HERBERT BAGLIONE @ FIFTY24SF <-- not familuar with Herberts work. We know that he's from Sao Paulo Brazil and after checking his website, well, his work is pretty fucking awesome. FIFTY24SF always has great shows so it's bound to be another great one and well worth checking out! 248 Fillmore St. 7-9:30pm

Herbert Baglione

SACRED PLACES <-- At creativity explored. From the Australian desert to the Baptist Church, artists with developmental disabilities from San Francisco's Creativity Explored investigate sacred places in a new exhibition of paintings, drawings, handcrafted shrines and sculpture... 3245 Sixteenth St. 7-9pm
