I considered the R. Crumb correlation, too, as well as that series of prints from Bryce McCloud of heroes like Johnny Cash and Fred Rogers on pennants.
Ditto on the Kurt Vile, but I still can't get on-board with Daft Punk. On my list: Philip Glass' "The American Four Seasons," a re-issue of Marshall McLuhan's "The Media Is the Massage," and a mix of girlie '90s nostalgia like Madder Rose, Belly and Luscious Jackson.
I loved that series too, and agree that the round frames gave it the fraction of levity it needed to not just be a total bummer. When she said that she was an emotional wreck when she was knee-deep in that project, I totally believed her. I was kind of a wreck just being at her artist's talk!
This looks fantastic. I wonder if the title comes from "Jim Cain," the Bill Callahan song that starts with the line: "I used to be darker, then I got lighter, then I got dark again." I love that song.
Another SPRING BREAKERS collab, in sneaker form: http://comatosemag.com/2013/03/supra-x-har…
This is outstanding.
This event was fantastic. My favorite part: The junior high kids reading their MLK essays. My second favorite part: When Alexander said something like, "We're all criminals. We are all sinners. If the worst crime you've ever committed is driving 10mph over the speed limit, well you've done more to endanger the lives of your fellow man than someone who's smoking marijuana in their living room." The audience laughed nervously, then cheered.
