Hoping to see Who does She think She is?, a documentary by Academy Award winning filmmaker Pamela Tanner featuring 5 women who refuse to choose between their art, careers, children, etc.. It's playing in New York now and soon will be nationwide. Getting rave reviews and you should keep an eye out.

:: Tuesday ::

THE POWER OF VOTING? REALLY? <-- You can make up your own mind about this one, but it's very hard not to notice a couple of good points. All those emails your mom, your uncle, your friends and even your driving instructor send are pretty annoying anyways. Plus, seeing your favorite artists turn into political mouthpieces is always a bit disturbing. Just don't forget that Gavin McInnes is Canadian so his opinions of the United States are worthless (just kidding.. sort of). As a bonus, we've also linked up one of our favorite blogs who chimed in with an additionally important question. Don't forget to read the "uplifting" comment sections on both these articles.

"Fecal Face's Chicago correspondent, Ryan Christian, heads west with a talent pool plucked from all over the map - New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, and LA - with each of the 11 artists lighting out for imaginative territories. Amy Mayfield's bright-hued paint-pours on canvas resemble psychedelic aquariums, while storms brew beneath the nervous, wispy lines of Erin Morrison's nature drawings. Mike Rea carves large-scale wooden space modules and suited astronauts rich in fantastic detail. These artists, their westward expansion notwithstanding, are definitely on the way to somewhere promising." -Flavorpill

:: Matcha ::

Sometimes museums get overlooked during all the First Thursday gallery fuss. It's really too bad because they usually have some good stuff cooked up as well. Like for example, the Asian Art Musuem's exploration of Japanese tattoo. Matcha features a bunch of stuff including live demonstrations (no electric needles) and tea tastings.

:: New Desk ::

You don't really care, but man, our sense of accomplishment is sky high as we wrap up our manual labor here @Fecal HQ. Even though probably going to end up slightly wonky, the new desk is coming out better than we thought it would... Hopefully we'll get this place cleaned up before Saturday's opening of West, Wester, Westest. Power tools crossed...
