Gorillaz In The Mist

I got an e-mail from Kidrobot informing me that:
Kidrobot, Cornerstone Promotions and Gorillaz invite you to join us as we celebrate the release of our new Limited Ed. Gorillaz toys:

Along with the platinum-selling band's new album "Demon Days!" Join us for toy-release and album listening parties at all of our stores (Kidrobot San Francisco: May 24th from 6-8pm, Kidrobot Santa Monica: May 24th from 7-9pm, Kidrobot New York on May 26th from 7-8:30pm), plus an unbelievable SIGNING by Gorillaz creator Jamie Hewlett (Kidrobot New York on May 26th from 7-8:30pm).
I also got an e-mail from James D. over at Moog Music letting me know that they have just released a Limited Ed. soft vinyl Bob Moog doll:

That li'l feller is pretty sweet. According to the e-mail:
This is the official Bob Moog doll authorized by Moog Music. The doll has been customed designed by Archer Prewitt from a sculpture by Kei Hinotani in celebration of Bob' 50 years designing great electronic musical instruments.
"Customed designed," huh? Anyway, I'm tired. I have to go to sleep. I have a big day ahead of me. I'm training for the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii. I'm going to bike 140 miles tomorrow. I have to get up bright and early. Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise, as my father used to always say. The early bird gets the worm. And everyone knows how delicious worms are. I've got a big bowl of them waiting for me in the fridge. But that's another story for another post. Good night.

Update: apparently the Bob Moog vinyl figure is only available to Moog Music newsletter subscribers. Sorry.

New Woo

I was riding my bike around Carrboro on Monday putting up flyer for the next 301 Film Forum, this Friday, May 13th, and I went up to Wootini to see if they would put up a flyer in their shop, and to my shock and awe they were closed! Luckily, it was just so they could move to an even better and larger location within Carr Mill Mall, to re-emerge like a butterfly from its cocoon, or a phoenix rising from the ashes, or Brian Dennehy emerging from his Cocoon. Anyway, Wootini is back open and now they have gallery space for exhibiting art, not just toys. While I was there, Heather showed me around and told me about an interesting Limited Ed. magazine called Faesthetic:

Faesthetic Cover

Faesthetic is on its fourth issue, each of which is limited to only 1000, and features the work of 90 artists over 210 pages of lush black & white art, photography, graffiti, and design. The list of artists is quite impressive and the price, only $25, is not oppressive. So get 'em before they sell out like the first three issues. Dennehy!!!

Yeah, I know what I said in my one-year anniversary post, that I would be bringing you "more crap than you could possibly imagine." Unfortunately, I still haven't found a new job yet, so I have been spending most of my time looking for work and the rest of my time working on old paintings that I never finished, making copies of the poster for the next 301 Film Forum:

301 Film Forum

On Friday, May 13th at Temple Ball in Carrboro, NC. I have also scanned a bunch of stuff from my sketchbook and added it to this page, which is also in my links section over there on the right under Art + Design. Here are a couple of my favorites from my sketchbook:

Big Willy

View From the Jolly Joker Coffeeshop

Rubber Man

The first image is a sketch of my father that I used for a later painting, the second is a sketch looking out the window of the Jolly Joker Coffeeshop in Amsterdam, and the third is a figure drawing of Rubber Man, the stretchiest man in the world. He lives inside my head and I only let him out on special occasions, or when I am at the Jolly Joker Coffeeshop in Amsterdam.

Now for something else Limited Ed. to peak the interest of those who view my site for the purpose for which it was created. It seems that My Plastic Heart has got their hands on the new 8" Hellhound Zero by Touma:


This bad little bugger is pretty sweet! At 49.99 I'm sure they won't last long. And neither will the new 3" Trexi Figures:

Robokong Grey    Victory Boy    Trapped in Space

Some of these cute little guys are already sold out, so get 'em while they're hot! Anyway, that's about all for now. I hope y'all don't get lonely before my next post. See ya'.
