:: PONYO ::

From director Hayao Miyazaki, who brought you such classics as Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and my favorite Spirited Away, has his newest film in theaters now- PONYO. We saw it last night, and if you've yet to see it, make sure you do before it leaves theaters. Good stuff.
The film is much more of a children's film with a simpler story line but with a lot of Miyazaki's dreamy natural environments that always make you feel good. If you have some younger ones you can take to see it with you, even better. Just see it. In SF it's playing at Kabuki where they serve food and booze which is nice. VIEW TRAILER and remember trailers generally suck as they need to appeal to everyone. Don't let it sway you from seeing this great film, and thanks to our Twitter followers who suggested we see it.

:: Art Show! ::

San Francisco artist Audrey Erickson is one of those people who is heart-breakingly talented, but who takes a year on one painting and never ever has shows. That means when she has a show, you have to see it or regret kicking yourself later. Sometimes art shows at cafes can get a bit annoying. You have to lean over people drinking coffee to see the art, it's hard to mingle, there are lines etc.. Luckily for you, Atlas Cafe is not one of those places. You can see the art, drink beer and see bands play just like a regular art gallery (sort of). Anyways, it's win-win, see you there tonight.

Julia Rothman's ever-excellent Book By Its Cover book review site has posted the incredibly sad story of the blatant plagiarism of Lauren Nassef's work by a British grad student. The grad student, Samantha Beeston, won a major design competition using Nassef's drawings. And this isn't just one or two pieces, Nassef has identified TWENTY FOUR stolen images in the work of Beeston (a list is on Book By Its Cover). Beeston even went so far as to offer prints of Nassef's work on her now-off-line site. It seems that the blame for this type of plagiarism often falls on the internet age in which we live, but in this case it seems that the web has served to bring the theft to light. Judging by the fact that Beeston's image is no longer on the Texprint site, linked above, I'm hoping the prize has been rescinded. Anyhow, read the whole story here and bookmark Book By Its Cover, because it is always a good read. AND DON"T STEAL.

You can bowse by room or by collection, seeing almost all of the work through hi-def images. We still think it's better for you get off your couch and go see it for yourself, but until then you can see the most amazing art collection in the world right now. Just make sure you actually look instead of just seeing it.

:: GZA Last Night ::

Wanna thank HUF and Jansport for the free drinks/ free food, but most importantly for the epic GZA performance last night. Not only was it intimate but how many people can say that the GZA rapped standing right next to you. Photos and some video up in a hour or so... Oh and buy this bag as that was what all the FREE was for... Complete open bar means shots of Fernet and a slower Thursday.
