Pangea Archive

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!


Time: The ALL-TIME 100 Albums

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!

Sex Pistols; 1973, never mind the bullocks, heres the sex pistols


Photoshop Tutorial Rap

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…


Spheres Of Fury by Hecq Vs Exillion

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!

Exit Real World gets all Molly Ringwald

Sweet16_WebBlast

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!


Pete Seeger Goodness!

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.


David Byrne Cycle Enthusiast and Musical Genius

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.

Design for a good cause…

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. 

 


Black Mountain feels so good…

For all those who missed the amazing Black Mountain last night (Mertzy!!!!), this is for you- ps the Sadies played and I didn’t get any footage, but you should check them out…

Von Iva by Plain T

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.

 

 


Sweet F.A. by Plain T

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.

LOVECITYLOVE By Lucien Pellegrin @ StudioNemo this Friday!

LOVECITYLOVE

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.
