My head-clearing, chilling out place (OR SOMETIMES) my furious, hate the world place. All depends on the crowd and my attitude. Either way, I'm into it.


My amazing sister and her family sent me a package of KISS M&Ms for Xmas this year. Thanks sis! But that sure the hell ain't ACE(or Peter for that matter) and therefore these are FAKE KISS M&Ms. I've said it once and I'll say it again....IT AINT KISS WITHOUT ACE. I still love it though, Sue! Miss you.


Just pre-ordered the new book, MISERY OBSCURA from Eerie Von, the original bassist from Samhain and Danzig. He is doing a signing of it at Generation Records next month, and I'm totally psyched to be there to meet the legend and check out his photography. Something to definitely look forward to, for all Misfits/Samhain/Danzig fans. Please arrive covered in stage blood, for maximum impact.


The book-god has really been smiling down on me lately, as I've been stumbling into great deals on fantastic books over the last month or so. Two William Eggleston books, THE DEMOCRATIC FOREST and SPIRIT OF DUNKERQUE and a Dennis Hopper classic PHOTOGRAPHS FROM 1961 to 1967, from a show he had in the early 90s. All three books are photography classics in my opinion, although SPIRIT OF DUNKERQUE is my least favorite of Eggleston's publications (which still puts it ahead of alot of shit out there.) And after re-watching EASY-RIDER a while ago, I have been really into Dennis Hopper, as artist, director, and person. Total art-maniac.

Cover shots to enthrall, inform or bore you. Your choice.


I've been a huge Siskel and Ebert fan since I was a kid watching them on channel 13 in my bedroom on a 10 inch black and white TV, waiting to see what they thought about The Road Warrior and An American Werewolf in London. When I watch an older movie nowadays, I always check Youtube to try to find their original review on AT THE MOVIES, and get kinda bummed out when I think about them now (Siskel-dead, Ebert-stricken with some sort of cancer). Anyway, I stumbled upon this clip and it
had me cracking up. I've read that they hated one another in real life, but I for one, will never believe that. No way.


Attended the opening night screening of UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US on Friday and had a great time. Sold out show with directors Q&A afterward. The film is kind of an overview of the early years of the Norwegian Black Metal scene, focusing on Varg (Burzum) and Fenriz (Darkthrone) and a bit on Frost (Satyricon). They covered the church burnings and the murders and all the crazy shit going on back in the 90s, and a little of what's happening today. I was totally into it, but I could see if you didnt know the basics of the full stories, you might be a little lost.

Took a few crappy pics and a grainy video of the line of people stretched down the block, which I don't see too often when it comes to movies. Especially movies about Black Metal. Happy Holidays everyone!


Thanksgiving in worries, just giving thanks that we live in the greatest city in the world.


Dan Flavin show at David Zwirner. New York minimalist who tripped the light fantastic. I honestly felt light-headed walking around this show. What more can you ask for than a contact high from art?


West coast weirdo artist. LOVE IT. Wallace Berman 1926-1976. Killed by drunk driver.


Really feeling his art lately. Google him for more info if you're into it.


Ok I saw the film, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL this evening at Village East Cinema (for some reason my go-to fave) and I have to say it really delivered for me. I purposely didn't see any trailers for this film, but I did scan a review or two which said it was the best horror film of 2009, and that it looked like a relic from 1983. That's all I needed to hear and I was ready to experience this thing. It does look like a 1980s horror movie with all the weird details, but it doesn't hit you over the head with it, and doesn't come off as gimicky. Consider it a satanic/babysitter movie you would catch late one night on t.v. in the 80s. I believe it is available on pay per view now, but I urge you to check this film out in a theater for it to truly achieve its beautiful timewarping effect.

Richard Prince's NURSE HAT CHAIR in the window of the new Gagosian art store on Madison, along with new book BETTIE KLINE. That's right, a fucking nurse hat chair! Any questions? I didn't think so.


Checked out a complete mind-blower at Shafrazi Gallery today. Haven't really followed Rob't Williams as close as I once did, but he has definitely re-opened my eyes. p.s. David Hockney show @ Pace-Wildenstein pretty great also.
