Email Correspondence with Bill Collector: Priceless

Click the upcoming hyper-link for a hilarious email trail documenting correspondences between a collection agent named Jane and a guy named David who insists on trying to pay an outstanding bill with a picture he drew of a spider. This totally made my day! As a follow up to the story, David’s drawing  was later auctioned off on eBay!

Banksy’s Village Pet Store: A Walk on the Wild Side!

If there’s one thing I like, it’s something that appears to be completely normal and mundane on the surface but which, upon closer inspection, proves to be completely subversive and fucked up. Such is the case with the Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill, a mind-bending installation from maverick street artist Banksy. Continue reading Banksy’s Village Pet Store: A Walk on the Wild Side!

Final Day for John Lennon Art Exhibit in NYC!

It is no secret that The Beatles were the greatest band ever in the universe of all time. For those Beatles and John Lennon fans in or near New York City, Sunday October 12, 2008  is the final day to see a moving and impressive collection of John Lennon’s drawings and song lyrics entitled “Imagine Peace.” Geoffrey and I went yesterday and spent about an hour enjoying the funny, insightful and often provocative collection of over 100 drawings and framed lyrics of songs from both The Beatles’ and Lennon’s solo catalogs. Some of my favorites were colorful sketches John did with his son Sean, like the frog drawing seen above. They also play Beatles songs non-stop over the gallery’s sound system, which makes it an even more enjoyable experience, because you can work in a little dancing! Sadly, the exhibit has a limited run which ends this evening. Do try to make it by if you can. Gallery address info is below.

Exhibit is at Openhouse Gallery, 201 Mulberry St., in SoHo. Hours: Thursday night 5-9; Friday 12-9 p.m.; Sat. 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Sun. 11 a.m.-6p.m. The suggested $2 donation benefits City Meals-On-Wheels.
