:: Youngest Around ::

You've probably guessed that we enjoy us some sailing here at Fecal Face (can't live on art alone), and follow some sailing related news/ blogs. One that I think you may be interested in is the BLOG FROM JESSICA WATSON who, you may have read, is a 16 year old Australian girl who is attempting to be the youngest NON STOP round the world sailor which is a mighty task/ feat...
To give you an idea of what's involved, when she set off last month she was hit by a tanker (easily could have died) just a week into her trip and had to return for repairs. Well, she set off again just a few days ago... Hope she pulls it off... although seems pretty dumb to us and not sure of her parent's intentions to let their 16 year daughter sail around the world solo for over 8 months... Non stop means she won't touch land at all. Everything she needs for the entire journey is on her boat, and she plans to round all the major capes and sail through the roaring 40s & furious 50s in the Southern Ocean (gnar gnar)... Anyway, could be an interesting 8 months of blog reading. YOUNGESTROUND.BLOGSPOT.COM <-- --> Oh, and watch the Great GREAT documentary Deep Water for a taste. Amazing film!

:: Movie Review? ::

Where-The-Wild-Things-Are.jpgSaw Where the Wild Things Are last night. Can't say we absolutely loved it, but it does have very many funny, witty, smart and sweet/ sensitive moments, but as far as cinematic masterpiece... not so much, but well worthy of a theater visit <--
Love us some Spike Jonze, but he leans a bit on music video feeling moments a bit much- over stylizing instead of developing scenes so that they produce their own emotions (make any sense?)... Would be interesting to revert back to 11 years old and see how you'd feel about the film - may scare the shit out of me personally, but aren't kids more desensitized these days anyway... Rate it like a 7.5 out of 10... to give scale some meaning, would give Inglourious Basterds a 9.1.

:: Plastic Bummer ::

THESE DISTURBING IMAGES <-- of albatross chicks were made just a few weeks ago on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific by celebrated photographer Chris Jordan.
The disturbing set shows nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

My friend Seth Adelsberger sent me this short article that mentions some Brooklyn dudes, The Bruce High Quality Foundation and others. It's a refreshing read, and makes me feel really hyped about the gallery I'm opening in Williamsburg December 1st! More on that soon! For now read this article.

A t-shirt connoisseur? Do you even wear t-shirts? If so, you should browse the hefty selection of artist editioned shirts that Chicago based, Imperfect Articles boasts. I think they're cool.

:: Everyday ::

Happened to be over at SFAI the other day and checked out the just-opened group show Everyday Miracles (Extended). The show will unfold in three phases starting with Phase One which brings together women artists from all over Asia. The real draw here is Chinese artist Kan Xuan whose video and multimedia pieces never cease to cause a double-take. If you've never been to the SFAI campus before, you'll probably be inspired whether you like the show or not.

:: I.R.A.D. ::

Today is RACCOON APPRECIATION DAY <-- or you probably know it as, IRAD. The intelligence and dexterity of a raccoon is such that it can pick an avocado from a tree, aim, and throw it at a barking dog... The German name for raccoon is waschbaren ("wash bear"), while the French call the raccoon raton laveur ("little washing rat").
