…speaking of the movie wizards (see previous update) i did a piece inspired by some of the imagery and how it was put together last night…not content though, i don’t go for those goblin type things. it’s called “the arch” and is three layers of paper…a back ground, middle ground, and foreground, each mounted on top of the one below….check it out HERE …and as far as watchng wizards, which i think you should do, netfix it or youtube it HERE
so i’ve been buying old scene magazines as of late, the scene is cleveland’s free weekly entertainment paper which started in 1973 i believe. i’m collecting issues from when i started paying attention to music and up till i was around 20, so 1977 thru 1984-ish scenes, give or take a 1976 or 1985. while looking through a 1977 issue an advertisement for a movie caught my eye. it had a really cool drawing of some crazy guy with a gun sitting on top of some kind of crazy ostrich looking animal and it was animated. the advertisement was for a midnight showing of it and it was called “WIZARDS”. i immediately went online and impulsively bought the dvd version of it…animated, midnight movie, 1977 meant far out dude. that’s the kind of crazy movie people got really wasted for before going in….so there was automatic potential.
just three more pictures from chicago…thanks again to the folks who came out, you’re the greatest…pretty nice tattoo as well
hey! i want to thank everyone who braved the cold and came out to the opening last night in chicago, it is appreciated, and these things don’t work without you. up top is a shot of one of the rooms and below are my pals and their dogs. top one is artist jay ryan and his dog nora. jay and i toured art shows in switzerland and germany a few years back, and he’ll be part of a four person show i’m setting up in cleveland this september. under that pictures is my buddy kirbi who is the owner of the venue, rotofugi…and just by coincidence his dog is named “fugi”…what are the odds?
i’m here in chicago, and i played with the radio all the way here. i like to hear how different classic rock, and rock stations vary their formats from one another……but what i found this is hard to do. radio is ruled by country, rock is dead….i swear there’s country stations on top of country stations…you know when one fades out another fades in on the same call numbers. old man hess remembers when rock was king, country stations were in the south, that’s it, that’s still where they belong….anyway, in the late 70’s through mid 80’s i was hitting an arena rock show at least once a week….black sabbath, queen, ozzy, aerosmith when they were good, ufo, cheap trick, blue oyster cult, thin lizzy, judas priest…all in 20,000 seat venues. where did we go so wrong. i defy you to find one or two rock bands that can still fill an arena, let alone a stadium…all country. ebola, isis, russia, north korea, and now country, the enemy of america
give a punk a gun and he does punk ass shit…ain’t that right you french terrorist trash
