:: Deep Water ::

Went and saw one of the best documentaries I think I may have ever seen (on par with Grizzly Man, if not better) - DEEP WATER is the story of the first solo, non-stop, round-the-world sailing race in 1968 which focuses on Donald Crowhurst and his story which begins like a Boy's Own adventure tale but ends up more akin to tragedy... It's very good and worth seeing! The trailer doesn't do it justice... Don't have to be into sailing to love it.

:: R.I.P. Morgan ::

After almost a year of living here in the Fecal Face offices, Morgan, a female soap dish crab, purchased on a whim in a chinese pet store, passed away today. Somehow we feel better as life in crab heaven has to be better than life here in that dank little tank eating the same old icky blood worms every couple days... She'll be missed... but missed most by our cat Poo whose obsession with Morgan bordered on the religious. Subita morte exstingui.

:: Tonight ::

art of Daniel Tierney
There are so many shows tonight. Here's what we're going to check out: First make your way downtown to 49 Geary where most of the dozen or so galleries are holding openings. Be sure to get there early because it gets pretty crowded as the art aficionados get off work and bee line for the place (runs 5:30-7:30). Down there see: CHRIS DUNCAN @GREGORY LIND - ID IS @STEVEN WOLF featuring works by Hooliganship, Anna Schachte, Dan Tierney, & Frances Trombly - and then be sure to head over to Lower Haight to see TODD BRATRUD @FIFTY24SF - and then just down the street from there is HENRY LEWIS @LOWER HATERS - and then on 16th is POLAROID PROJECT @ADOBE BOOKS - plus a whole lot more ON OUR CALENDAR. Looks like fall is here.
