Mix Tape Top Ten

So, I'm home sick and because I can't sit still, have started going through my cd and tape collection (yes, I still have both of them). Low and behold, I've come across various "mix tapes" boys/men have made me throughout my romantic history. Hence, my desire to create another top ten list. I won't name names...but here's a combo of songs from tapes, cds, and ones I remember being sung to me in no particular order...Long Live the mix tape...or I suppose mix Ipod now.

1. "Greater Love"-Elizabeth Troy

2. "Rock WIth You"-Michael Jackson

3. "Wonderwall"-Oasis (anyone whose had a Brit boyfriend has had this one sung to them in many a drunken moment).

4. "Don't You Forget About Me"-Simple Minds

5. "The Perfect Girl"-The Cure

and we can't forget "Just Like Heaven"-10 years later by a different guy...

6. "Norwegian Wood"-The Beatles

7. "Hey There, Delilah"-Plain White T's

8. "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight"- The Postal Service

9. "Overcome"-Tricky

10. "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want This Time"-The Smiths

Joel-Peter Witkin at Silverstein Photography!

My college professor used to tell me that my work resembled Witkin. I still don't see it, but am constantly fascinated with his images...and his evolution as an artist. Go see his new work...and some of his old at Silverstein Photography...his work constantly startles, no matter how much you see it.

here's a link to his work in case you've forgotten what it looks like. Just in time for Halloween!

Dumbo: On a shoot with an Aston Martin in Brooklyn

I was on a shoot with an Aston Martin in the DUMBO area of Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago and snapped some shots with my trusty Kodak point and shoot. Apparently there are only 3 of these cars in north America. I'm sure you car enthusiasts will dig this immensely. Check it out.

and now the car...

Elizabeth Peyton @ the New Museum & Outsiders NY Art Show: Go see it NOW.

(top floor of New Museum downtown-someone have a party up there and invite me, please)

(view from top wrap around terrace of the New Museum)

(rounded chairs are made of fedex-style paper material wrapped in circular layers. Where can I get these? Cool contrast with dark nail polish).

I went to the New Museum downtown on the Bowery to check the Elizabeth Peyton show and found her color palette inspiring...She covers rockstars and hipster life well.

however, it was the Outsiders NY show that made me want to break out all of my art supplies and get to work. On the corner of Houston and the Bowery is an old shelled out building that houses work by international artists like JR, ANtony Micallef, Vhils, and several other talented artists organized by Banksy's dealer Steve Lazarides. Nice to see art that speaks to the mind and soul instead of just making a room pretty. The location in which the work is displayed is just absolutely perfect, as well. The building itself is art, raw and real. Go, ...and enjoy. It's up until Oct. 26th. Make sure you go downstairs.

This piece is actually carved out of the wall, using the drywall as the highlights in the face and the brick, the middle tones and shadows in this fine portrait. One of my favorites...

(how's this for a coffee table?)

My Favorite Song Today

It's older but I can't help but be a sucker for an acoustic guitar...
