Well, the 18th Annual Art From the Streets art sale is coming up really soon — Nov. 6th (12-5) and 7th (9-5) — so I thought I’d share this beautiful piece that I purchased there a few years back:
I am still not tired of looking at it, so I would say it’s definitely part of my permanent art collection.
You really should check this event out if you’ve never been before. In the past it was inside ARCH, but now it will be a block over, at St. David’s Trinity Center, @ 7th & Trinity. There is sure to be an overwhelming amount of artwork to look at and choose from, starting at $20, with the proceeds going directly to the homeless artists. If you go to the link you can read bios from some of the artists and learn about the program. Mark the calendar!
Am I going to get cantaloupes? Oh the suspense!
And oh my goodness. These big boys are almost ready to bloom.
This photo-post is a sentimental indulgence harking back to 2005.

Here’s another, of the puppet stage!
(It says PUPPET SEASON PEP RALLY)
It SEEMS like every growing season, I notice new species of plants popping up that I haven’t seen before.
This one was new LAST season (was that in the fall?):
So here are the newcomers in the yard:
So much going on, behind the scenes! Not much time for bloggin just yet, but if you can come on out to Salvage Vanguard Theater tomorrow night (2/14), I will be making a Synaesthetic Dessert on the stage. ♥ Lights, sounds, color, motion!!

Junk-a-thon! This time the theme is let’s barter more — so, bring stuff you don’t want or need! Drop it off or trade it for something you DO want or need. I want to have a bulletin board sort of thing, so people can leave a flier or note advertising themselves and their services or products or whatever! Let’s make connections, people! It’s a new economy.
Yes! I love crossing things off the list.
This is a special sneaky peek (note: best set list ever, center) at what has gone into the production of the latest Night Viking & Friends album, Side Sauce. Inside a tidy vinyl sleeve, you get a b+w version of this “map”, with a collaborative crazy collage on the back, PLUS full-color front+back covers, and 31 TRACKS of awesome/inane sonic boom. I said BOOM.
Oh right! and back to that subject that I mentioned in the title, Ziney-zines. This project gave me a good vision and a process that I can use to accomplish my goals for The Lost Art (of)’s recordings.
[At some point a while back, I decided to make a February/Valentines’ mix this year, both to honor the Chi-do tradition* that has been dormant for some years, and to have a “gift” available for my audience at SVT on 2-14. Then– I added on to that ambition a desire to create xerox-copied booklets as accompaniment to the Recordings — to house extra stories, to indulge my urges to explain, to save honorable intentions from un-crossed off lists, and, of course, to design. Lovefully…]
Cutting and pasting is fun! Email me to order Side Sauce or to pre-order the February Mix.
*It’s a long story…
