Bye bye Theory

Somehow this past weekend I browsed past John Hedjuk's "Bye House". I was never a particular fan of Hedjuk, I love the drawings and I recognize the importance of that streak of the avant garde, especially in the historical context bla bla bla. What I had not realized was that the Bye House had gotten built, and though it does look somehow fun, I think I lost something there. Should one build theory? Paper architecture in concrete? maybe better left to paper I think, though of course this is no vote.

If the sky falls

I was listening to Cibelle when she sings "and if the sky falls, we'll catch mockingbirds..." and I just wanted to be prepared, in case the sky falls, what do they look like?
there's tons on the internets of course

and there's that famous book too

Day Without Gay

Today we're supposed to "Call in Gay", not show up at work, and donate our time to work against the hateful H8.. But what do you do when you're the boss? How to call in Gay? And anyway Athens today is facing more elemental problems than this, so maybe we just keep working... Here a nice shout out though (and I heart the merch too)

Stereo Nostalgia

Last night was the gigantic LIFO magazine party, where Stereo Nova reunited for a short performance.

It was a total memorabilia evening, as Stereo Nova were the bright beacon of the hazy 90's days. And overtaken with nostalgia, I browsed on youtube, and everything is there of course. I even found my two collaborations with them, which I had lost for a long time
the video clip for "Ασυρματος Κοσμος", which I partially shot in my tiny New York apartment, in the Chelsea Hotel, in 1994.

and the set deign from the ΗΛΕΚΤΡΟΜΗΧΑΝΙΚΗ performance (made to look like the inside of a plastic bag)

Not South Beach

I'm missing all the South Beach festivities (and Art of course, ooops) where Angelo went to present his We give you money, we want your love "Board Meeting" at Nueva Galleria De La Barra. Still, with a hangover, I managed to drag myself down to this North facing beach anyway

where there seemed to have been a party going on too

with elegant furnishings

three little tubes watching

the Cloud and the Mountain became best friends

the bench went surfing

curious shower

left alone on the beach to ruin

exit with sun salutation

Universita del Qatar: In the Name of Islam

Browsing through old Domus, I stumbled upon this 80s desert hallucination, standard Islamic shopping mall, but somehow managing to look cute...
