So here’s some stuff I did for a Refinery 29 article. The Ultimate Guide to Styling Your Bangs.  It was great to work with Gabrielle Korn and the rest of the crew at the downtown offices. Up there are a couple of pics. One making fake bangs and the other, some going out hair with an impossibly deep side part.

NOW IS THE TIME. 
And in these times consider how radical it would be to have a voice and a choice about the direction of the economy. Imagine an engine just for you to exercise that voice and flex that choice muscle and really help implement CHANGE for a neighborhood and it’s peoples that promotes health, growth and opportunity.

“The idea of the Pop-Up Co-op came up which would open a shop at 128th Street and St. Nicholas that would sell $1 organic take-out coffee and eventually produce.   Minority youth with no prior work experience will be paid $28.5K a year as a starting salary and will get valuable job skills along with the option of receiving ownership shares for the co-op”

Beastie Boys Ad-Rock,  Artists A.L. Steiner,  Becca Albe and Matt Wolfe, Musician Sia, Le Tigre’s Johanna Fateman (who is also donating her highly coveted pet portriats as a prize at the $250 dollar mark) Musican Kimya Dawson, DJ Designer Imposter, FilmMaker Aurdry Marrs, Legendary punk drummer Molly Newman, and Art word superstar Emily Roysdon, just to name a few, have lent their names along with their donation $’s to back this seriously radical and much needed project. 
Greg Allen who has been an active member of his West Harlem community since 1998 has worked homeless kids or kids otherwise in need of support for more than a decade. If there was a masters degree in “What youth culture needs to propel it’s self into successful adulthood” Greg would hold it. 
So instead of another non-profit systematic band-aid/temporary fix-it, Greg has devised a brilliant plan to implement an actual radical alternative response inside of the small business template, creating a worker owned/cooperative sustainable food market. 
Kathleen Hanna says of the project:
“I think his plan is really radical because it’s about creating a business based on people’s needs rather than a desire for profits.”
What more to say? Please support this with as much money as you can with as little at $10 dollars.

These beautiful images are from the most recent shoot of COUNTY DOWN, an episodic video work-in-progress by Laura Parnes. This scene features Shaun, my friend and partner in SEAGULL SALON. I’m the music director! Watch the trailer.

OOOHHHHHHHH! I just re-found this conversation about Riot Grrl tattoos from 2009. Thanks Jo for your infinite wisdom

Laura Parnes is a super rad artist. She blew our minds with “Blood and Guts in High School” last year. Based on Kathy Acker’s highly regarded and widely banned book of the same name, BAGIHS was a collage like series of video installations and live actors playing out the themes of abduction, sex addiction prostitution and slave trade. 

County down is a bunch of episodes of a new narrative story in video format Parnes is gracing us with. This is a re-post from Johanna Fateman so for more details read below.

Teens in a gated community invent a new drug and their parents go crazy in COUNTY DOWN, a new episodic work by video artist LAURA PARNES.

I made new music (some with JD Samson) and helped select songs by Wynne Greenwood, Kisses, Lesbians On Ecstasy and Long Hind Legs for the soundtrack.

Thank GODDESS one of my clients told me about the “Chakra Online Test”. I have to say my results were pretty much what I figured. Closed heart, not grounded, living in a fantasy world and socially domineering to the point of pushing people away… Thank god for the fantasy world part.

Johanna Fateman, co-owner of SEAGULL SALONZine Queen, member of the band Le Tire, songwriter for Pop Stars and BookForum writer has started her own Tumblr! This new format for a largely analogous artist is most certainly cause for celebration.
