Video Clip of the Week: Talk in Tongues, “Still Don’t Seem To Care”



What I love about this first-ever music video clip by LA-based, psychedelic pop band Talk in Tongues is that “Still Don’t Seem To Care” sounds to me very much (i.e. exactly) like a Tame Impala tune. And you know how I feel about Tame Impala.  In this clip, we see a nuclear family experience a paranormal phenomenon as they are frozen and scanned by what we can only assume is our soon-to-be alien overlords, or possibly amplified sun rays. And then every thing catches fire. FIRE!

Talk In Tongues will release their debut LP, Alone With a Friend, on May 19th, and if you Pre-order it digitally now, you’ll get “Still Don’t Seem To Care” and another single release, “While Everyone Was Waiting” instantly! Like them on the Facebook at This Link. Enjoy!

Alphabet Mural in Alphabet City

ABCD
All Photos By Gail

This mural of the letters of the alphabet, called (appropriately) Alphabet City, is the work of Brooklyn-based artists The Yok and Sheryo, who work for the Jersey City-based arts group Green Villain.

EFG

The mural went up on the exterior walls of the RCN Building on Avenue C between 5th and 6th Streets last December, but with severe winter we had, it was only nice enough this past weekend for me to get inspired walk over there and get some good shots. Enjoy!

Bacon Thing of The Day: 3D Print Bacon

3DPrint Bacon

If you are going to make a 3D Print of a strip of Bacon, I think it should at least be cooked Bacon and not raw Bacon, as this 3D Model obviously is. But I am not complaining, Because, Bacon.

David Shrigley at Anton Kern Gallery

Sorry We Bombed You
All Art By David Shrigley. All Photos By Gail

Do you love the art of humorist /painter David Shrigley? I sure do. Confession: I have a little crush on him. He is amazing, and I worship his art. Anton Kern Gallery is currently hosting a show of new paintings by David Shrigley, the opening reception of which Geoffrey and I excitedly I attended on Thursday, April 16th. I recommend you go see this show while you can.

Gallery Shot

First, I want to show you what the gallery looked like with people in it, so you can see how the works are hung and get an idea of why all of my photos had to be cropped at weird angles. Because I am not 15 feet tall. In case you are not familiar with why David Shrigley completely rules, here is some background on his deal, which I cut and pasted from his Wikipedia entry.

Eat The Bugs

David Shrigley is best known for his mordantly humorous cartoons released in softcover books or postcard packs. He finds humor in flat depictions of the inconsequential, the unavailing, and the bizarre, although he is far fonder of violent or otherwise disquieting subject matter.

Everything I Do is Right

His work has two of the characteristics often encountered in Outsider Art: an odd viewpoint and, in some of his work, a deliberately limited technique. His freehand line is often weak (which jars with his frequent use of a ruler), his forms are often very crude, and annotations in his drawings are poorly executed and frequently contain crossings-out.

Six Shrigley's

In authentic outsider art, the artist has no choice but to produce work in his or her own way, even if that work is unconventional in content and inept in execution. In contrast, it is likely that Shrigley has chosen his style and range of subject matter for comic effect.

I am a Sign Writer

Two Sides It Will Fade

Subtractor

In addition to the 78 drawings on display, the exhibit includes two sculptures, one of which is this Subtractor; a calculator with limited function keys.

Opening Hours

What the Hell Are You Doing

They sell this book at the gallery. Just thinking about opening its pages makes me squeal.

Autograph

David was present at the opening party and he is very easy to spot because he is about 6’5″ at least and also very, very cute. I had brought with me this cartoon of his that I love, which says “No Speed Limit Anymore Go As Fast As You Want Like in Germany” and I asked him if he would sign it, so he signed it “in German.” I love him.

New Works By David Shrigley will be on Exhibit Through May 23rd, 2015 at Anton Kern Gallery, Located at 532 West 20th Street, in the Chelsea Gallery District.

Hot New Products: we want to know all about them, and when those new items come from a brand whose products we already  love, we can’t wait to try them! The promise of being introduced to, and l tasting, delicious new, limited edition and seasonal items from trusted favorites like Tombstone, Pom and Uncle Ben’s — as well as some trending brands that were new to us — brought the food writers and bloggers to the Marriott Marquis on April 6th for Editor Showcase Eat This Event. Here are some of our favorite tasty products that we can’t wait to tell you about!

Hot Pockets Breakfast Bites

Hot Pockets, one of the most popular names in frozen sandwiches, have two new additions to the family:  Snack Bites and Breakfast Bites.  At the showcase, we sampled Hot Pockets Snack Bites Four Cheese Pizza and Pepperoni Pizza, as well as the Breakfast Bites Bacon, Egg & Cheese variety — all very delicious and appetite-satisfying!

Hot Pockets Samples

Additional varieties include Snack Bites Hickory Ham & Cheddar and Cheesy Beef Nacho, and Breakfast Bites Ham, Egg & Cheese and Sausage, Egg & Cheese! My mouth waters just typing that.  Hot Pockets Snack Bites and Breakfast Bites are made with 100% real cheese, are a good source of protein and do not contain any artificial flavors, providing a deliciously hearty snack option that’s ready in just over a minute.

I tell you, it does not ever get boring looking for fucked up shit to photograph for this blog, because it is everywhere. I saw this baby head sculpture with a seed pod body — and actually, if you look below, there are two of them — at the Into the Wild exhibit at Art Now NY Gallery on West 28th Street. And now it cannot be unseen.
