just had the pleasure of meeting and jamming w/ this guy and mr. sun araw himself last night. 
at betalevel, beneath the crooked alleyways of la's incredibly spooky chinatown...on a dark and stormy nite.
tomo, man rips rad on the double bass, see example:
he'll be doing more things w/ the instrument here:
- January 4th, 8:30 pm:
with Charlie Rauh and Leonid Galaganov at 65 Fenimore Street, Brooklyn, New York City, USA.
- January 7th:
with Charlie Rauh and Leonid Galaganov at The Firehouse Space, Greenpoint, New York City, USA.

aside from his tasered up career in improvised music, composition, 2xbassing, etc., he is also a comic guru and makes some fine artwork. especially dig these #simpleisbest pen and ink drawings, as well as his watercolour approach here.
seems to have an obsession w/ birth. meant to ask him about that. i didn't.

mail baggage...

.damn yes.
my mailboxes have been ejecting such taser material at me recently!
from left to righteous:
-writ words and fab fotos from both new and familiar faces.
from SAN publications in toronto.
-some superb "suburban pyramids" and "car fighter" print action grabbed from goatmother industrial.
last pulls of the yr i believe. "car fighter" actually comes in the t-shirt format, but as a pedestrian in LA (which is why this piece resonates so strong w/ me) that doesn't wear t-shirts too much, i talked my way into a print version.
-a fresh copy of erin k. drew's super spooky "erotic art magazine", fucking amazing.

also, this recently framed up a set of mini-polaroids by the extremely thoughtful anne peterson sobel, straight outta doha.
primo example of my really bad photo taking skills, but everyone who comes thru here is all like "oh wow!" or just like "wow!"
just a taste of some super additions at table-blue studio, llc., and a reminder to keep postal w/ pals.

an thing that happens on kchung radio sometimes...
me (jk) + lunch skirt + sometimes occasional guests, happily sandwiched between 2 of my fave spots on 1630 AM.
it features sounds from our, both our mouths, + selected and/or random audio recordings, and sometimes lunch skirt reads things, and alsooo we sometimes have guests.

the title "sooooooo..." is built on the show we sub for called "noooooooooooooooo".
altogether, it's an rather exploration in awkward convo, with (somewhat) intentional over-usage of :(and, but, um, hmmm, and, yeah but no, and of course 'so', etc.)...
alsoooooo, lunch often prods me to just play the next track.

terrific energy.

"Spanish Silver Fox"

such a taser factory project!
Spanish Silver Fox
By: Guan Rong
Set in fashion magazine format, Spanish Silver Fox offers an extensive view into Los Angeles based artist Guan Rong's vision of her ideal husband.
In this production, an in-depth interview conducted by artist Brian Getnick acts as a guide through glossy pages of glamorously stylized work by photographers Patricia Castaneda and Morgan Yu.
Reality and fantasy merge herein to create what can easily be read as a physical dating site profile of the artist, an appropriate conceptual platform for her views on love, life, and desire.
terrifyingly happy to see it in print, and proud as a clam to have had a hand in helping bring this into being.
just one of the cast, along with:
brian getnick, patricia castaneda, morgan yu, miya wang, mary jane boltz, and of course, the artist herself.
...sometimes it takes a crew large enough to fill an odd communal household to raise a full-color, conceptual, husband-hunting, fashion magazine.
the launch party was the icing, thanks to women's center for creative work.
