blunder bus

now is the summer of our discontent made glorious fall by the awesome fall shows at The Hole!

Photobucket
i hate summer and i love fall
for manifold reasons

Photobucket
i like how everyone messes up the above quote when they crop it to “now is the winter of our discontent”
a paraphrase of the full sentence would be “right now is glorious summer and the winter of our discontent is over because Edward IV (sun and son of York) has ascended to the throne”
but it is said sarcastically

Photobucket
today was the last day of the Mat show and in a few hours, Dearraindrop arrive from Virginia Beach!
yesterday i went to Lauren Cornell’s internetty opening at the New Moo

Photobucket
i was happy to see this was not an “aids 3D” piece
amanda ross ho made it if i remember correctly? its neat
you have to see the scale to get the interest i think

Photobucket
this piece touched on my personal feelings vs objective curatorial feelings:
i personally privately or whatever have strong feelings about “art in the digital age” and love corny things that i shouldnt like 8bit like chip tunes like anythign old video game looking like bad GIFS like internet commenting. i actually suggested to avery he make a piece of hilariously juxtaposed angry internet commenting recently
and he looked at me like “are you kidding”
and it took me a second to realize that was a corny idea
because of my intense personal proclivities

Photobucket
patrick if patrick was a girl?
(the fabric is covered in pins)

Photobucket
speaking of patrick i bumped into him today!!!
it was so weird
he was on his bike stopped at the light by the bowery mural, he would barely look at me or say anything it was horrible!!!

Photobucket
as much as i love clunky analog dinosaurs lingering in art, i would love to see slide projectors retired forever

Photobucket
the wall label described these photos as explorations of how digital cameras can fuck up (was one of them called “digital flare”? that doesnt sound right… fuck.) and that sounds really exciting! but then none of that excitement is present in the piece

Photobucket
this was a surprise favourite: Hanne Mugass did i spell that right?
items on ebay that people have bootleg customized with modern art
this photo is not the best photo unfortunately
a good reason to go see in person!

Photobucket
takeshi’s piece is banans:
he essentially spent months and months finding a new way to make a video (after pioneering the data moshing technique and making the best videos with the hacking existing clips method) and learned all the 3d animation thingies and made this crazy POPEYE movie
the copyright for POPEYE just expired, which is weird the idea of expiring copyright, so takeshi made a bootleg popeye movie from memory that was all these sad fucked up anti-hero vignettes like him chugging spinach and destroying his apartment in a spinach-drunk rage, him getting evicted, etc

Photobucket
whee!
i missed a few pieces in the show due to excessive crowding but look! who is that blonde on the left?

Photobucket
upton and i will eat more coffee-rubbed burgers while you figure it out

Photobucket
its SALEM!

Photobucket
the blonde was jack, heather and john are the other two bandmembers

Photobucket
you guys bought their new album right? you should

Photobucket
they played Santos last night and it was packed and super

Photobucket
with liberal use of fog machine

Photobucket
i had to listen to their album over and over for the i-D article and i felt like a dorky groupie because i knew, like, alll the songs
the research i did for the article also indicated that many people dont think hearing them live is an improvement, but the sound system at santos is so stellar and the lighting was great and everything seemed awesome i dont know what “the internet” is talking about

Photobucket
from spooky to folky: Jd’s band MEN played after them! late night

Photobucket
JD has fantastic stage presence i love watching her

Photobucket
i play softball and i love watching JD perform!

Photobucket
thank you spencer!

Photobucket
where am i now

Photobucket
oh why thank you i woud love to sit here and have big free bottle of whiskey!
this place is great!

Photobucket
boys are great

Photobucket
blondes are great!

look at the brunette getting face pushed outta the frame!

Photobucket
“we are totally partying”

Photobucket
the only place that would let us and our underage and unidentified friend in at 3am was this drag club

Photobucket
we were into it

Photobucket

Photobucket
upton was not into the secret one way glass thingie

Photobucket
there is always someone watchin

Photobucket
ack

Photobucket
we were pretty blurry by this point

Photobucket
i forgot to photo it but there was a photo in Lauren’s show of a night sky in time elapse showing all the stars leaving trails but then three geo-synchronous satellites were three big bright dots with no trail and i liked that photo

Photobucket
and offer this, my drunk recreation

Photobucket
hey that big seeder fireextinguisher is gone! the whole building is gone!

Photobucket
i noticed that on my way to softball

Photobucket
its our “world series” and we are playing Juicy Lucy for the… pennant? or no that is the wrong word. the…championship
im going to go with championship

Photobucket
i did like one good thing and then a million stupid crappy things; i was being a blunder bus
my arm is so sore and i feel all old and un-sporting thing, it’s so sad!

Photobucket
it’s really fun to spend a morning into afternoon hanging out playing sports though
i need sports to feel normal my life does not make sense without some sport

Photobucket
adult sports: the number of like knee and elbow braces is ridiculously high

Photobucket
yellow is yellow

Photobucket
ear is ear

  • alife baller

  • curious/sad

    also wondering why you two broke up, you seemed so great together.

  • tskross

    …sometimes corny is okay, its best not to take oneself so seriously…

    admin I love your pics, the manifold one is great, but they are all great

  • Kathy

    Well since you asked, Patties graffiti was beggining to get soft and I just cant stand cooking vegan dishes . I like real men who eat meat.

  • Drug Penis

    why are you being all sad and depressed about it then if you were the one who broke it off with him? go and get him back. you can do it.

  • admin

    Bright idea: Get some business of your own and tend to it, losers.

  • Sober Dick

  • Drug Penis

    I’m just sycophantic and I get my thrills meddling in others personal affairs.

    It would just be nice to have some background information, since we oftentimes hear about Patrick and her feelings about him and used to see him all the time, but don’t know what subsequently happened.

  • waitforsteadylight

    …let’s just call him ‘mister softie’, mkay.

  • Alex Anderson

    1. I never meddle in ex-BF biz
    2. I love this entry Kathy – inspired – I now officially have a crush on you.
    3. I eat meat.
    4. My graffiti is never soft.

  • Drug Penis

    I’m not going to meddle. It’s just a question. She can choose to answer or not and either way is fine, since it’s her choice.

  • Want Want
