planning yr last meal - w/ automne zingg + joseph ploeg

Well, at like about the same time that Mark Rice and dropt our weird food book, this happened…

Comfort Eating With Nick Cave: Vegan Recipes To Get Deep Inside of You

Defensive Eating With Morrissey: Vegan Recipes From The One You Left Behind

These two delicacies combine the darkly humorous illustrations of Automne Zingg (aka: lacey space cake) with vegan recipes from chef Joseph Ploeg… 

Automne was already in like my top 3 of folks werkin’ over-the-moon style clever and cynical commentary, but to view it in such pro as fuck presentation is a joy!

These vegan versions of quality classics by Mr. Ploeg set page to page with her hilarious representations of two of the most bleak, heart-evoking icons will have you crying tears of laughter into your warm bowl of “Mac-N-Cheez For One”.

This combo meal kills, but will definitely make you reconsider it all just for one. more. bite.

My personal go-to comforter...

Recommended you stop looking over the menu and order something:

street terms: vol. 1

thought i'd put a lil more spark on this recent action...

Street Terms, Vol. 1
Artists: Elaina Morgan + Jeremy Kennedy
Photography: Rebecca Ramirez
In photographic form, Street Terms, Vol. 1 is the first in a series of art books cataloging the collaborative language-twisting works by artists Elaina Morgan (Brooklyn, NY) + Jeremy Kennedy (Los Angeles, CA).

Each installment is catalyzed by a coincidental encounter with a tangible, incomplete set of characters. Utilizing only what's included in their alphanumeric find, the artists create a collection of succinct absurdist meditations on contemporary culture and city life.

Vol. 1 features arrangements of mirror-polished brass letters discovered in the wilds of Echo Park, Los Angeles and shot on verdant turf by photographer Rebecca Ramirez.

~ 26 page full-color book (saddle-bound)
~ materials - matte cover stock, matte photo stock
~ measure - 6" x 8"
~ edition - 44

the launch party was in full effect w/ a taser soundtrack by llull and our "street terms: live!" interactive installation (both pictured below).
huge thanks to everyone who joined in, and insert blanc press for graciously hosting at outside gallery. we find ourshelves w/ a few fewer of this... launched, loaded, and still stocked! 
looking fwd to vol. 2 coming  soon!
check out for a full scoop.

the taser side(s) of the world- drawings by rob hessler

my fandom for this fellow has been there from the moment i locked eyes w/ his work.
not only the work, but as a person, the experience is so damn taser.
a few years laters, and now with ~2,400 miles of distance between us, my incredible appreciation of this work has done nothing but grow.
(funny how that happens)
flipped worlds, feathered scopes, and re-revisited historical scapes... mr. hessler cleverly pulls together forever stare-at-able pieces in insanely exacting detail, with enough conceptual presence to draw plenty o' inkwell dry.
these grabbed photos are just a tease...
 not even the most intense, just a couple of faves. seeing rob's work in person is enough to make my wrist cramp, instant carpal tunnel vision....the amount of fancy, pen technique (to his own) involved in this action breaks my brain.

here's the online, a lot to offer. he's out there often, many cities... grab it live when/if you can.

recent cares, shares, mails...

right, 2016... some spectacular illness was terrifically offset by a visit from my b-day sharer, aurora dorey alice, a few staycation days. and a haul of really rad cards.

the (kinda) downtime gave me a moment to dig through a few new or recent readables grabbed up via mail or handoff...

from left to rights...

-rice harvester #14- The closing edition, and powerfully done up (love this cover art). from 1995 til here, wow... i'm looking through to see what issues i have and what i missed. i've known this human for years. From crazy-ass tales humorous and tragic, written or spoken, even in lost moments, hugs, his words have always made me feel a whole hell of lot more... human.

-theoral #11- (the abc of improvisation) conversations with laura altman, monica brooks and andrew choate- i caught a copy of this fine publication a while back via thee unwrinkled ear. don't believe i've encountered this apparently damn taser series before granted this access. just as one saint bollards re-informed my awareness of my outdoor urban surroundings, this work has spurred exciting new thought towards creative sound-making and beyond. further into this catalog i go: (

-poems by elbe, vol. 2 - this 24 page collection of truth snips and hopscotch histories arrived perfectly stapled up during the holiday times. now read, my copy sits on a shelf of important things. however, it's size and design are very suited for the ass-pocket of most any pants for fast access to anxiety quells, bus moments, and daily mental snacks. small, orange, rectangular pill (high mg). taken in combination w/ alcohol or pregnancy may cause "funny" results: (SAN publications)
honored to have this terrific mention... taser dialed.

just finished this terrific share from lunch skirt (official table-blue studio librarian)
the lover- marguerite duras
i believe in these words, perfect timing. drone strike.
