Marlyn Minter is for Surfers

With all the down times come the up times. And for every sleepless night and lost cause, there is a productive all-nighter and crazy opportunity. And so it is that I was gifted, a few months ago, a handful of hard drives full of Marilyn Minter's next video project with which to have my way. Well, our way. That is, Marilyn is one particular, artsy gal with a set of objectives, percolations and opinions that would tend bubble out into me normally sedate life. To be honest, she was very patient with me. And to be honest, I am grateful for every minute. Anyhow, this Friday night at Salon 94, Marilyn is kicking off her exhibition with an old fashioned art opening. Besides the obvious point-of-destinationy kind of things that are her massive and incredible paintings, swing by and you'll also see some of my helpy handiwork rear projected onto a wall on Bowery. Inside is a whole room filled with another piece I helped her make. Super sloshy, wet and right down the alley of people who tend to like the sloshy and wet. Marilyn Minter is for surfers.

Today's Thought

TSJ. Scott Hulet. Rad.

Ty Breuer just stopped by to clasp hands, bringing glad tidings of congrats on the CSFF win and making the TSJ blog. 

I'm all "whaaa?" 
And he's all "yeeaaah." 
And I'm all "whaaaa?" 
And he's all "shut up already." 
Then he showed me this:

Today's Thought

Still Stoked

GC: "My friends wife's response to the Lapsed Catholics: 'Wow. Godard meets aging beach boys. Existentialism on a board.'"
TS: "That cracks me up. Kinda a perfect quote."
"Better yet is that shes a french scientist with an iq approaching 200 who works for the getty on how to restore contemporary art, i.e. all that 60's california plastic/resin light type art.  She surfs."

Lapsed Catholics Wins Best Int'l Short

I woke up to a couple emails today filling me in that The Surf Magazines Don't Talk About Lapsed Catholics, a short film we made, won the the "Best International Short" award at the Canadian Surf Film Festival. You know those people who say "but I've never won anything in my life!!" Well, that's about right for me too. What a feeling.
