|:| 7 & 7 Is... #0.2 |:|








Fittingly the second 7 & 7 Is... goes to O.Two. One of the
founders of my favourite aersol artisans, RockGroup™,
O.Two's work is stylised linguistics and always fresh.
Cheers for the answers squire, here's to 0.2008.

1. Best art/design - [Art] - José Parla/Dash Snow/Matthew Barney.
[Design] - Steve Nishimoto
2. Best live event - Queens of the Stone Age - Era Vulgaris, at Brixton Academy.
Executioners Car Club meet at the Ace Café.
3. Best film/tv - Deathproof (who listens to critics?) and Inland Empire.
4. Best product - O.Two stickers. Printed by Chromatics.
5. Best style - The inimitable Fatsarazzi.
6. Best clothing item - 1 Black rain coat.
(bought or given)
7. Best food - ...is home cooked.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Worst art/design - There is no 'worst'. Better to spend time looking at the good, than the bad.
2. Worst live event - A bar somewhere in Eastern Europe. A a Go-Go dancer and half a bottle of whiskey. Enough said.
3. Worst film/tv - Reality.
4. Worst product - Any plastic figurine, toy or action figure, more specifically - the Kaws Vader companion.
5. Worst style - Expensive, immaculate white fixies - the new roller-blades.
6. Worst clothing item - Plaid.
(bought or given)

it applies nicely to the IPod cases built by 45 Nano Cases.

Analogue complete a hattrick of Report mentions with this
for their next show "High Priestess Of The Woods" by
artisan French.
It's on from January 18th until February 16th (my birthday!)
with the drunkards gathering at the preview on the 17th.
Should be good.

The excellent Tiny Showcase and Early Griffin have
new goodies out both of which include work by Robert Hanson

PS. I shall report on his own "Themes" LP soon. Hold tight.
