  • You Should Know About Paul Gould

    / Comments (4)

    If you’ve ever had the displeasure of working with or trying to clean up a piss-poorly built file, you understand the value of good print production. Paul Gould spent five years at Karsh\Hagan learning the trade from his mentor who went on to work at CP+B, so he definitely knows his way around the Mac.

    He’s now bumping around as a freelancer with shops who understand the time, effort and brain damage savings that good print production can provide. If you envision production guys as grumpy, old bastards who sit in the back of the shop cursing under their breath as you walk by, Paul will change your tune. He’s like a cool breeze that never blows hot air or messes up your hair. He’s in our list of Recommended Talent when you need him.

  • Beautiful Losers Movie Review

    / Comments (1)

    We sent our friend Heather Crank to the film’s premiere at the Mayan Theater in Denver last night on us. Here’s what she had to say about it.

    Beautiful Losers is a remarkable personal look at 11 artists (Thomas Campbell, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Shepard Fairey, Harmony Korine, Stephen Powers, Jo Jackson, Geoff McFetridge, Ed Templeton, Chris Johanson and Barry McGee) that created an artistic subculture movement in the lower east side of N.Y. in the 1990s.

    Focused completely on creativity, leaving the world behind, the artists congregated in a 2,000 sq foot storefront that became a place of social gathering, a crash pad, a place for artistic exploration without judgment or the pressure of money. Each artist adding to the other’s experience supporting and influencing each other without competition. The group became an organism unto itself.

    Anyone fed by creativity, any artist, anyone teaching art MUST see this film. Beautiful Losers is an authentic look into the creative process, what living to create truly means. As well as an inside look at all the pressure and conflict fame can bring. You might find it hard to walk away uninspired.

  • The Real Question Is, Why?

    / Comments (2)

    When it comes to subliminal advertising, naked women hidden in ice cubes are cool with us. (In fact, we’ll buy any liquor that tries that trick.)

    But what the hell is KFC doing hiding the image of a dollar bill inside the lettuce on its sandwich? Anybody have a possible explanation for this unappetizing tomfoolery?
