The week before last, on our way to Montreal, we stopped by the opening for Dime Bag 3 at Giant Robot NYC (curated by Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens). The show is up until the 12th of August, check it out. The above slide show will show you the scene. Big thanks to Jordin for inviting Amy and I!
Last week I finally got some real time off and hit the road heading due north: Lake George, NY then Lake Placid, NY with the destination of Montreal, Canada. Montreal is an amazing city and if you haven’t been make the trip, it’s closer than Chicago (from Philly) and what they say is true – It’s like the Paris of this continent. We also happened to be in town during the Just for Laughs festival and I got to share an elevator with Jim Breuer and in a separate elevator ride, Alonzo Bodden past winner of Last Comic Standing. Most of our time was spent walking around, exploring the city. It’s a huge city and there’s a ton to see and do. One of the standout events was a free (2 nights) concert by an all women’s choir from Belguim called Scala and Kolacny Brothers. They had a huge video screen and performed behind it while lights, fireworks and a full orchestra went down. The first night they performed, it rained the whole way through and was still pretty great. We watched it again the next night (no rain) and it was a second great show. I will definitely go back to Montreal again someday (hopefully not in the Winter).
Saturday night is the opening of Dime Bag 3, curated by Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens. Dime Bag asks each artist (over 240 of them) to produce a piece that fits inside of the provided ‘Dime Bag’. I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of some of Jordin and Rodger’s shows in the past and as long as they keep asking I’ll keep participating. Come on out Saturday night for the opening at Giant Robot New York, 437 E 9th Street, NY, NY
Some time ago I had a series of hard drive failures that forced me to do a lengthy overhaul of my digital archives. In the process many of my ‘recovered’ files showed up as strange versions of their previous selves. This zine is an attempt to make good from bad and move forward from the wreckage.
