These two have taken on a huge project. They are going to begin an archive of previously unseen and unused music/band photos. Check out their site and donate if like what they are doing!
YES! is all i can say! Time magazine has put together the all-time 100 albums and have chosen the corresponding photos very well. They seem to have taken the photos that not only capture the emotion of the moment but also the personality of the artists. Artists that include but are definitely not limited to Johnny Cash, ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Willie nelson, the sex pistols, the Ramones, and Neil young!
Lovers of photo, music, history and culture will enjoy this all the same!
Here is a little tutorial to help out everyone’s photos and christmas cards this year. The rap is a little wack, but the dude surprisingly knows what he’s talking about. CMY-Killa covers red eye removal, “blinging” your text, and applying filters to your unicorn…
Saw this video via the Defgrip crew, and just had to post it here on our site. Really great, i love the concept, color and editing of the video and music. It made me smile!
Our beloved skate and snow shop Exit Real World puts 16 candles on their cake this month! Yes it seems only yesterday i was spending my saturdays loitering at the Salem Exit, pestering Missy and Brad to put on another skate video, while i contemplated spending my hard earned allowance on some new abec 3 Lucky’s… those were the days. So don’t miss the birthday bash, happening at all three Exit locations this month!
The most amazing videos of Pete Seeger’s Rainbow Quest show are up on youtube. Amazing stuff! How could it not be with that name!
Marilyn Manson played the Roseland Theatre this Monday! The house was sold out, the show was great, the crowd was insane and the light show and costumes were awesome! To see a little video from the performance click here.
UPDATE: Mr. Byrne will be here in PDX promoting his book Bicycle Diaries on September 30th at the Bagdad Theatre.
One of my favorite artists of all times, David Byrne, is crossing over genres (which is no surprise, he seems to do it all the time) to curate a fantastic show based on his love of cycling. Unfortunately, his show will not be exhibited in our bicycle loving city, but at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT for its Bike Rides exhibit which opens Sept. 26 and runs through Jan. 3. If you are in CT, enjoy! I hope they chose to exhibit one of those sexy new Globe bikes that I can’t wait to get my hands on… they are a piece of art themselves.
And one of the best songs of all time for your listening pleasure…

The Bread Art Project was created to, “increase awareness of the growing hunger problem in the US.” For every design submitted, $1 will go toward Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization.
Eat locally made bread! Support the growers closest to you! And help feed families who can’t feed themselves. It’s dire times out there.
And, on the walk home I saw this little ditty (click here to see after the jump)… (more…)
I just came home from the Von Iva show at Doug Fir, and this sunday night show was fire! Those three girls put on an amazingly energetic show and the crowd was no let down! Keyboardist Rebecca Kupersmith was really stoked on the poster i did for the show (props for Nemo!) and once that trio got on stage is was loud, fast and personal. Kelly was throwing her drums and Jillian was unbuttoning my flannel and flashing the fans! The Portland crowd roared and the girls came out for one more song after they finished their set, the show was ferocious.
It is time once again! February has long been the month for Portland’s famed Doom Town Rock & Roll Fashion show, however this year it goes by a different name,the Sweet F.A. Rock & Roll Fashion show. The production is still headed by two of Portland’s mightiest design minds Erin “Beretta” Cry of Revolver Revolver and Elizabeth Mollo of Disorder Cloths. As for whats in store, i was able to sneak a look at the fashion and speak with some of this years featured designers, and it looks like this year is shaping up to be another Doom Town Productions smash! Get your tickets, and get your ass to the Fez Ballroom on the night of Feb. 21st.

About Writing on the Wall
The four-man crew of Garrett Reynolds, Dennis Enarson, Nigel Sylvester, and Mike Spinner spent over a year living out of suitcases to film the first Nike 6.0 BMX movie, Writing on the Wall. From 4-wheelin’ to 4-star, ditches to public parks, the 6.0 crew scoured the corners of the Earth to discover the undiscovered and lay down new lines. Battling school calendars, narcolepsy, ridiculous competition schedules, and border patrol; the crew rallied to capture amazing riding. Writing on the Wall showcases the distinct style of each rider, from Nigel’s street skills to Spinner’s technical prowess; from Dennis who rides anything at any time to Garrett’s assault on cities around the world. The 6.0 crew represents the next generation of riders driving the progression of BMX. Enjoy the tour, as one of today’s most diverse BMX teams travels to Beijing, Dubai, Barcelona, NYC, Australia, and more.

By Lucien Pellegrin
I gain inspiration from the clean, dirty, gritty subcultures of humanity who have been torn and beaten by a social construct that is no longer conducive for their personal condition. Through this inspiration, I see the Beauty in all that we are. In essence, there is no one way to live life, no right way to make art, no perfect way to die.
Lucien Pellegrin lives and works in Seattle as a teaching artist for a non-profit organization by the name of Arts Corps. Come check the Lucians art out Friday Dec 5th 6-10 PM at StudioNemo 1875 SE Belmont st. Portland,OR.
StudioNemo stopped by the Charles A. Hartman Fine Art Gallery this week to check out the work of Portland’s Corey Arnold. Make sure to stop by Dec. 4th for the opening ceremony and meet Corey in person. 134 NW 8th Avenue Portland, OR.
Nemo’s own Austin Will and our good pal Nick Lipton of YoBeat put together a sweet little video premier at studio nemo Saturday Nov. 15th. They showed Airblaster’s new film August, Team Thunder’s new movie Gold Country, and Leeward Cinemas’ My Own Two Feet and Isenseven’s “Teenage Love Graffiti.”
With beer courtesy of Nike Snowboarding and Isenseven…it was a great night, no fights, no vomit, tons of new faces, prizes, smiles, and redbull! check out the whole story @ yobeat.
2008’s Studionemo’s Halloween extravaganza broke an all time attendance record. DJ Joel Skool, Brandon and Ned mixed the beats and when Thriller hit the airwaves, the crowd was all dancing. Costumes at the Nemo event were amazing and creative. check out the party pictures on our Flickr account.
On 10/3 StudioNemo was proud to host the fantastic work of Nemo Employee, Nubby Twiglet, AKA Shauna Haider. Nubby’s pop style art consists of stripes, shoes, and letterforms collaged on wood and ceramic, sealed in epoxy resin. The 30 pieces on display are compiled from three series and span over three years. We are ecstatic to have her work on our walls. Come in and check out Nubby’s art all month!!
The JAM packed Boulder Theater housed hundreds of people for the world premier of Airblaster’s Latest film, “August.” August was shown with Absinthe’s “Ready,” Think Thank’s “Stack Footy,” MDP’s “Double Decade,” and Technine’s “Familia.” It was a night to remember. Special thanks to Nemo Design for letting me borrow a Cannon G9 to document the trip.
