I totally forgot about these until yesterday. A series of stickers I designed about 4 years ago as a joke to send in to (& which later appeared on) obeygiant.com.
The first sticker was designed in reference to an altercation that took place between Glenn Danzig & one of the guys from North Side Kings, who knocked Danzig out with one punch.
For those curious, see the gloriously awesome video below:
The next 2 stickers were about our then-current administration, particularly the bumbling fuckwit who called himself our fearless leader. I still pretty much feel the same way, though thankfully he's not still leading the country into Hell any longer. Don't get me started on how disappointed I am in the current administration though..
Bill Hicks has been dead for over a decade & a half, but his words still ring as true today as they did when he originally spoke them. While most thought of him as a comic, he was seen by many (myself included) as a prophet of sorts. He spoke universal truths that generations down the line could glean knowledge from. He regularly made light of these diatribes in the middle of his sets, jokingly promising to take the audience back to "Dick Joke Island" by the end. Before we parachuted back to the island, Hicks managed to impart possibly the most important advice anyone could ever listen to...
Next, a surrogate sage for myself, Mr William Seward Burroughs. I found out on my birthday in 1997 that he had passed away just 4 days prior & was crushed for months. Despite his many faults & the hard living of an addict, he managed to live until the ripe old age of 87, & he spoke some of the most important words ever mumbled by any human being during his time on this planet. The man dropped gems like a jeweler. If you are not familiar with him, do yourself a favor...
Was on David Choe's site earlier & saw a link to a hotel he painted a room in, called the Hotel Des Arts in San Francisco. What an amazing concept. The hotel has a full-on art gallery for monthly openings, the rooftop hosts concerts during the receptions & they also have quite a few "Painted Rooms" by some of the best up & coming urban art talents in the bay area.
Now all I need to do is find an excuse to visit SF, & I'll be staying in a different artist room each night. Called the hotel a few minutes ago, & the rates are fantastic too.
