|:| Constant Darkness |:|

A 'tini selection here and it's a nice animated feature
called "Fear(s) Of The Dark" which has work by 10
amazing [graphic] artists. It looks pretty impressive
so watch out for it in November.

|:| On A Roll |:|

The first screenings of "Deathbowl To Downtown" have
started in the US and I'm looking forward to it making a
jaunt onto these shores soon.

|:| Visual Linguistics |:|

"Coded Language" was a two day show by Roughe in
Aberdeen and by the looks of the pics it was a treat.
You can get prints and check more here.

|:| Above The Clouds |:|

Above is not an aerial shot from a helicopter it is infact
a detailed map of Shanghai and pretty amazing to boot.
The future of Google maps, and perhaps online shopping.

* It takes a minute to load but believe me, it's worth it.

|:| 100% Man Made |:|

Artist Christopher Wool is just about to drop some
boards in the latest deck releases by Supreme.
Have a peek, you might like them.

|:| Go Left! Go Left! |:|

Ok I will make a better job of updates soon but there is
background happenings over at The Shadow Gallery, I'm
sorting some new works for G®T and of course work is
busy as ever. Even though, I'll be sure to make more
regular updates.

And now... on with the show.

*Also the above is a shot out the kitchen window to a car
on fire, it exploded a few times as well. Yea it even gets
that in Canon Mills sometimes too.

I just got a link from Nick at Edinburgh Fixed Gear about
his new site. It's looks nice and I never realized there was
such a big rider community in this city. Watch out for those
cobbles though people.

|:| WWW |:|

This Friday 12th September at the Art School in Glasgow
my good friend A'La Fu is assisting The Bug, Warrior
, Rob Soundcrash and Memory 9 for some audio
wreckage to usher in the arrival of the new Soundcrash night.

It's on from 11pm and should be pretty amazing.

Also downstairs Baller$ 5ocial Club celebrate their first birthday.

|:| Wordsworth |:|

More typography fun, this time with the people over
at Lifelounge who are putting together an exhibition
titled "Some Type Of Wonderful" (wish I'd used that).
It several contributors and will be well worth a look.

as ever. Check it out.

|:| First Cut Is The Deepest |:|

I just came across the work of Melbourne sculptor
Nicholas Jones today and I've got to say I really like it.
Simply the time these things must take to create is
worth a look at his site alone. He looks a bit of a
character too.

They do also remind me of Jen Stark who is equally
talented with the blade.

|:| Futuristic |:|

So I get round for the 'tini on Monday and she's only
bought me a jumper (aww too cute, thanks) from the
new range on Sixpack called "The Future".
It's designed by Akroe and the line is cool and the
promotion is racy. Double bonus.

|:| Life Moves Pretty Fast |:|

This documentary by Eileen Yaghoobian looks pretty
interesting. "Died Young, Stayed Pretty" follows the
art of poster culture in North America which has produced
some amazing wor
ks from numerous people too many
to list. Check the site
for more.

|:| Oh! My God! I Miss You |:|

Ok I always post things about exhibtions at the Baltic in
Gateshead and never actually make it down but I am
definitely going to try and make the Yoshitomo Nara show
before it ends on the 26th October. Being that the previous
post is in Newcastle then a double header could be on the
cards. We'll see if I do.

|:| All White Now |:|

Famed trainer painter Dave White has an exhibition of
new works at the Opus Gallery in Newcastle.
Simply called "New Paintings" it runs from 11th September
until 6th October. Should be worth a peek.
