:: Growing Pains ::

No big deal, but what's with galleries naming themselves after their owners? Maybe it's part of growing up, but our pals at the Los Angeles based galleries The Lab 101 & BLK/MRKT Gallery have decided to go with the owner name deals with Lab becoming the Cerasoli Gallery and BLK/MRKT now called Kinsey/ Desforges Gallery. Maybe we should change Fecal Face to Trippe/ Pollock/ Edwards/ Troff/ Skirvin/ Suthigoseeya/ Marr/ Soto/ Giant/ Bello Online Art Destination... but in all seriousness, the two galleries named above always show great work whatever they decide to call themselves. Maybe there's something to it.

:: Finding Music ::

Jesse made a post awhile ago basically making it very easy to find mp3s using Google. I can't find that post, but I did save the code that you enter into Google to find what you're looking for, and we're going to share it again. Works great!

:: Sunday Afternoon Movies ::

We'll Skirvin is MIA right now, so here's a couple clips: MORE ROKY ERICKSON <-- a low fi recording of the guy who basically started "psychedelic rock" in the 1960s and later ended up wrongly in an insane asylum. Listen to the 13th Floor Elevators and/ or see the documentary on him You're Gonna Miss Me... Not a huge TV person, but Wolfe told us about Hulu.com. You sign up (takes like a week for you to get accepted or whatever) but then you get Fox and NBC shows on demand... All the Simpsons you want.

SS Independence in the Dog Patch
You've been to The Ramp for some bloody marys and looked up to see that huge old cruise ship in the dog patch that's been sitting silent for years and wanted to get inside.

You been in there or know how to get in there?! So beautiful. More info on the ship here.
