• Ain't Nothin Rancid Here

    Tim Armstrong is going to be one of those dudes people look back on when he’s gone and say, “Damn, that motherfucker will be missed.” Anybody hit the show at Red Rocks last night?

    Grab Rancid’s new disc, Let The Dominoes Fall, if you haven’t already. In true punk fashion, you can listen to the whole thing on YouTube here if you need a preview. Trust us, you don’t.

  • Banksy v Bristol Museum

    / Comments (1)

    A burned-out ice-cream van is among 100 works Banksy has installed at Bristol’s museum, replacing many of the museum’s regular artifacts.

    The reason the museum was closed was kept secret from top council officials.

    Banksy said: “This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off.”

    Staged in the council-owned City Museum and Art Gallery, Banksy v Bristol Museum features animatronics, installations and a sensory display.

    The exhibition and its location have been a closely-guarded secret since October, with just a couple of museum officials in the loop.

    It opens tomorrow. Who’s buying us a plane ticket?

  • Post-It Stop-Motion

    / Comments (2)

    This is my senior project at Savannah College of Art and Design. Where my idea comes from is that every time when I am busy, I feel that I am not fighting with my works, I am fighting with those post-it notes and deadline. I manipulating the post-it notes to do pixel-like stop motion and there are some interactions between real actor and post-its.

    Well, there you have it. A bit of advice: stick to the art and not the word side of things, and you’ll be all good.

    Thanks, Scott

  • Denver Haps 06.13.09: Dave Sheets Opening at Newspeak

    / Comments (4)

    Local artist and printmaker, Dave Sheets, is having his first solo show in Denver this Saturday at Newspeak Tattoo Shop. His site is slow-loading, but worth the wait. But if you only have a minute and want to see one of the finest examples of his work, check out his Bern helmet design which is rumored to be going in the 2009 Transworld Buyers Guide and will hit the shelves this fall. Even if you don’t dig the work, there will be free beer, free food and free punk music playing on the 1’s and 2’s all evening.

    Our understanding is that there are two A/V geeks employed at Chiat who run around on an ad hoc basis and shoot things the agency needs. Might be a mood video for a pitch, a interview with a top creative or something entirely unbelievable as the two pieces below demonstrate. The first was done by these two dweebs to welcome Chiat’s newest ECD, Al Kelly. The second, well, we’ll just let it surprise you. D\I\R\T\Y.
