My eyesight  isn’t the best, but it wasn’t hard to spot this tiny Pink Flamingo Lip Balm (I know what it is because I own one myself) on one of my recent walks. The Flamingo and its friend, the Ice Cream Cone Magnet Pen (seen below) were abandoned on a ledge outside an apartment building. I made my documentation, and I continued on my walk.

Pink Thing of The Day: Buff Monster’s Mister Melty Figure

Do you like Buff Monster? I sure do.  If you are familiar at all with this world-famous street artist’s extensive body of work, then you know that his key creation is Mr. Melty, which is an anthropomorphic ice cream cone. This Hot Pink version of Mister Melty was a limited edition that was selling in the Clutter Magazine booth at last years Five Points Festival for about $275, I think. That sounds like a big chunk of change, but consider that this piece is also a highly-collectible work of art, and, you know, it’s kind of a bargain. Plus: Pink.

Indulge In Love Mural By Jason Naylor

Jayson Naylor’s murals are easy to recognize for his use of bold, psychedelic colors and pop culture images wrapped around an uplifting message. This piece, which is on the side a store located at the northeast corner of Grand Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is called Indulge in Love. As you can see, Jayson has spelled out the word LOVE using images of things we all love to indulge in, such as  . . .

Jayson also a has a piece on the building behind this one, which is only partially visible from street level, so I’m afraid I cannot tell you what that one says. Indulge In Love went up in August of 2019.

Mark Mothersbaugh’s Ruby Kustard Sculpture

Resembling a soft-serve ice cream swirl, the upper portion of this sculpture consists of the world’s largest crystal ruby, at 30,o9o carats. Mark Mothersbaugh had the gem carved to poke fun at both fine jewelry and fine art. A ludicrous send-up of both disciplines, the sculpture, Ruby Kustard (2009 – 14) evinces Mothersbaugh’s longtime interest in using humor as a means of cultural and institutional critique.

Sunbathers II On The High Line

Kathryn Andrews appropriates images from popular culture, often American movies, television, and stock photography archives. She then alters and re-contextualizes these images into three-dimensional configurations to create new narratives where viewers are invited to rethink the photographs in relation to their own bodies.

Sunbathers

For her High Line Commission, Sunbathers I (not shown, located at 18th Street) and Sunbathers II (shown here), Andrews responds to two contrasting aspects of the elevated park: its relationship to nearby billboards and to the natural landscape. Andrews describes the High Line’s environment as a “hyper-surreal image world,” composed of large-scale advertisements and commercial signs that surround park visitors as they stroll high above the bustling cityscape.

Sunbathers II is a large, horizontal aluminum box containing a giant fan and featuring a photograph of an ice cream cone. The fan’s movement is juxtaposed with the adjacent static image, mirroring the park itself.

Kathryn Andrews’ Sunbathers I and II Will Be On Display Through March, 2017.

Video Clip of The Week: Dilly Dally, “Purple Rage”



Hey what’s up. Welcome to the first Video Clip of the Week for Fall, 2015, courtesy of the Canadian band, Dilly Dally! Aurally, Dilly Dally’s “Purple Rage” sounds like Maria McKee possessed by the spirit of Kathleen Hanna fronting The Pixies. What that means is that your ears are in for a blast of grunge-melodicism that is, in a word, irresistible. In the video, Dilly Dally lead vocalist, Katie Monks plays the challenging role of the embodiment of Rage, a popular and underrated emotion which takes the form of a Creature from the Purple Lagoon, or something. Purple Rage then wanders from the marshlands into the streets of downtown Toronto for a story line that is both surreal and totally familiar simultaneously. It is a lot of fun to watch, and the song is just fantastic!

“Purple Rage” is the second single from the band’s hotly anticipated debut album, Sore, due out October 9th, 2015 on Partisan Records. Enjoy!

We’re not feeling the spring weather quite yet, but once it warms up a bit, I think any hip five year old girl would love to rock this Biggie Smalls T-Shirt paired with a White Tulle Tutu and accessorized with a novelty Ice Cream Cone Pendent. I wish this outfit came in my size, is all I’m sayin’. Available at Piccolini NYC on Mott Street.
