JeongMee Yoon’s photograph, Jeeyoo and Her Pink Things (2007) from The Pink Project (2005 – ongoing) inspired this diorama of Pink Girls Toys, which provides a launching focal point the new exhibit, Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color up now at the Museum at FIT.

The idea that pink is for girls and blue is for boys is ubiquitous today. Already conspicuous in the 1950s, when it was part of an ideological push towards gender conformity, the pinkification of girl culture really took off in the late 1970s and 1980s.

Good timing: it is a thing. Because we neglected to pay close attention to the unorthodox start time of the recent opening reception for Mark Ryden’s The Art of Whipped Cream exhibit at the Paul Kasmin Gallery, we arrived four minutes before they locked the doors behind us, and had to do a mad dash through the gallery to snap some photos for this post before they gave us the bums rush.

The upside to our extreme tardiness is that gallery was nearly empty, and we were able to secure many decent, people-free photos! Winning!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Popsicle-Shaped Thing That is Not a Popsicle

Pink Popsicle Vibrator

Yeah, you know what it is. This Pink Popsicle-Shaped Vibrator takes the words ‘Adult Novelty’ to a new level! Geoffrey and I spotted this fun thing in the Gift Shop when we visited the Museum of Sex recently. I didn’t check the price, but it looked like one of the more straightforward toys on the shelf, in that I don’t think I would need a set of instructions to figure out how to use it, which is advantageous.

Pink Popsicle Vibrator with Others

Here it is on the shelf alongside some of its friends! It’s just like being in an electronics store, trying to figure out what all the little gadgets do.

And don’t those little round things above just look like exotic ear buds, or some type of space-age Bluetooth? I ask yez…

Worleygig.Com Goes to Eleven!

Happy 11th Birthday

Well, it’s June 10th again and that means it’s time to chalk up another banner year here at the Worley Gig, where today we are celebrating Eleven (11!) solid years of Web Dominance! Hurray for us! This past year has seen The Gig give pause to its competition with our unequalled coverage of Art, Bacon and Things that are Pink, as well as Food and Restaurant Reviews, consciousness-expanding coverage of Design and Lifestyle topics and our wildly popular new music series, Video Clip of the Week (which just turned one year old)! I can’t believe how much we rule!

Of course, we could not have achieved this level of success without all of our dedicated and enthusiastic readers. Thanks as always for all of your support, your faithful readership, for Tweeting and Posting our links via your social media outlets, and of course for your fun and insightful comments. Cheers to another great year!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Gingerbread Shop

Here at The Worley Gig, we are always on the hunt for cool Pink Things to bring our readers, and here is a good one. The Yucaipa-based Gingerbread Shop was spotted by me a few days after Christmas at downtown Riverside’s Festival of Lights, where they’ve parked for at least the last three years. The Google informs me that this Bright Pink A-frame pop-up bakery is an offshoot of a bakery at Santa’s Village (a small park with kiddie rides that I recall visiting as a child), and for a time was a fixture at the Inland Center in San Bernardino. The shop serves up delicious desserts, including cinnamon rolls, apple crisp and, of course, gingerbread cake and gingerbread men, as well as hot beverages. The Gingerbread Shop is located on the Main Street Pedestrian Mall, on the north side of Mission Inn Avenue. Unfortunately, the Festival of Lights runs only through January 4th, 2014, so you’ll have to wait for next year to check it out!
