from the WTF files

We all know bigger cities – Chicago, NYC, San Francisco – have so much more going on. But do they have a caped, masked crusader? One like The Shadow Hare and the Allegiance of Heroes? And their foes Der Stürmer and ROACH – the Ruthless Organization Against Citizen Heroes?

No, they don’t.

Okay, if you check the Superhero Registry, NYC has a couple.

Dark Guardian, of the Justice Society of Justice (not a typo), is just awesome – “I fight for all that is right and just. I protect the innocent and punish evil... I now only live my life for justice and the betterment of mankind."

Another one, Tothian is great – “I've always known my that my mission in life was to save the world from evil. I've dedicated my entire life to studying and training in the ways of the Warrior...
Because my name is Tothian. And I destroy evil."

But they're not the Shadow Hare.

the Pepsi logo redesign



















just realized i've got kind of a food thing going here, so maybe i should move it along. but this was so funny, i had to post it. Lawrence Yang felt he just had to bust this logo. it was just sitting there waiting.

Marlboro Redesign



With the new legislation heavily restricting the nicotine content and marketing of cigarettes, the St. Petersburg Times asked DJ Stout of Pentagram how they thought companies like Marlboro would handle it.

His response, as absurd as it sounds, is pretty spot on. I don't think this sort of packaging is going stop that many people.

just never works out

this sucks, woxy.com closed up shop. owners pulled the plug.
first, right after i finally get a car that'll pick up the broadcast station, they shut down and move to online only. then they move to Austin, which means no more local licks. it was still worth listening to though, and now this. they close up shop.

come on mang!

some awesome photography

Steve Ziegelmeyer is a local photographer who's been spending time at the homeless camps, talking with folks who live there, capturing some truly astounding photos.

the subjects ranging from Timothy, aka Sergeant,a veteran and college student, to Pokemon, a guy so well known and loved, he's got his own fan club.

Steve's really capturing so much in these, this quote just scratches the surface:
The only difference between these portraits and my others is that all the subjects here live on the street. As one homeless man told me, "We are still people."

Shepard Fairey at the CAC

this is my first post on the new blog, and it's just perfect timing.
Shepard Fairey Supply and Demand opens tomorrow night (2.19) at the Contemporary Arts Center, with him as dj after the "artist talk."

you may not be familiar with his name, i'm sure you remember the Obama poster. he caught a lot of heat for it, AP copyright infringement and all that, but it's an icon that everyone knew, and facebookers copied.

the crazy part is he started with Andre The Giant Has a Posse stickers forever ago using just newspapers, a copier, some markers and glue, and a graffiti mentality. he's kept the mentality, evolving Andre has a Posse to OBEY for his plan of "Urban Renewal." but he's grown beyond just that and developed much more of a socioeconomic and political voice, and definitely developed his artistic abilities.

i've been really into his work for a long time, so i'm gonna do what i can to make it. but i guess if i miss it friday night, i'll just hit it saturday after the ADDYs.
