The spokespeople for The Amino Acids are liars, cheats and charlatans – and I couldn’t be happier about it!
See, back in late 2010, two of the men possessed by the surf-punk aliens, took off their masks, talked to the media and said the Aminos were done. They said the band was played out. In about a decade, the group managed to hammer their sound into our heads through about 500 shows.
So, I talked to Dave Taylor & Scott Boyink – so sexy, just like “Star Search” spokesmodels – about “the end” of the Aminos. The story worked out so well that some fellow journalists give me a few awards for it. Thanks, guys!
The Dirty Show Los Angeles 2011 featuring photos taken with the Polaroid Land Camera 230 and the Lomography Fisheye 35mm by me. No shitty iPhone hipster garbage or Photoshop effects were used, damn-it.
Wow I’m famous! Not really, but one of my paintings got a little on-wall exposure as an extra in this Groupon commercial. The split-second magic starts (and pretty much ends) at marker 1:02. And if you’re interested, check out the somewhat time-lapse video of the painting process HERE.
The painting has since been sold.
I’ll be showing some paintings at Porch Gallery in Venice, California on April 1st… (for real). Come check it out.
