God is Real

One of the most brilliant artists on the planet today, the stunning GRIMES is back again with a bit of ultra VIOLENCE.  Don’t make mother nature and the women mad guys, unless you want some more hurricanes tearing down your doors.

POPPY is back with more MK ultra style brainwashing, death-worshipping, and Barbie meets satan, discussing things not fit to print here.  She has truly run off into dangerous territory and now there seems to be no turning back for the lost blonde-lamb gradually being led to the slaughter before her cult-programmed fans.  We won’t show you that downward spiral here; but instead, some TRUTH.

$atan has found his-her way into the grocery business this month. We will never be a good android, and you will NOT see us swiping our butts, foreheads, wrists, or hands at Whole Foods / Amazon for a 666 purchases in this or any other lifetime.

It seems the Amazon owned Whole Foods is rumored to be rolling out testing check-out scanning with palm prints, where customers swipe their hands.

We interviewed Jack Grisham (TSOL) and Lydia Lunch back in the day …old school baby. Re-prints maybe?

LA-based singer and songwriter Annika Rose has shared the music video for her debut single “In The End” (TaP Records), directed by Danica Kleinknecht.  Annika states, “Filming this video was a really special experience as it’s something that I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid, It was amazing to have it finally come to fruition and help tell the story of my first single.”

Released last month, Annika’s debut single has been featured on Apple Music’s “A List Pop,” “Breaking Pop” and “Pop Chill” playlists as well as Spotify’s “Fresh Pop” and “On Point” playlists.

Subnormal states, “Annika reminds us a bit of early Alanis Morissette.  With a beautiful look, a beautiful voice, and an outstanding vocal range, and at just 17 years old, she is definitely one to watch out for. ” 

Another young new LA artist; Delacey has released a moody new single. With a mature, rich voice, Delacey has a strong career ahead of her.

While Delacey has continued to release new music this summer including “The Subway Song” and “Emily,” her debut single, “My Man” has continued to climb the charts and is currently #33 at Top 40 Radio in the US.

Originally from Orange County, Delacey started writing songs and playing piano at age seven while idolizing artists including Stevie Nicks and Billie Holiday.  She has co-written songs including Halsey’s “Without Me,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as songs for Demi Lovato, Zara Larsson, and The Chainsmokers, among more.

After debuting her MAGDALENE show in May – twigs’ first live shows in nearly three years – FKA twigs announces nine additional North American dates on her headlining MAGDALENE tour. The North American leg of the tour begins November 3rd in Vancouver, making stops in major cities across the U.S. and Canada including LA, Denver, Chicago, Boston, and Brooklyn (see a full list of tour dates below).

MAGDALENE weaves a tapestry of sound, performance, costume, pole dancing, Wushu, set design and lighting. Inspired by the revolutionary 19th century concept of ‘Gesamtkunstwerk,’ or ‘total work of art,’ it is a complete experience. FKA twigs summons all that she has – technical mastery, creative brilliance and physical endurance – to transport her audience into a stunning artistic realm.

FKA twigs launched her MAGDALENE world tour with two sold-out nights each at LA’s Palace Theatre and NYC’s Park Avenue Armory, continuing on to play headlining shows in Berlin, London, and Sydney, and performing at Primavera Sound, We Love Green Festival, and Afropunk.

Subnormal magazine states “FKA twigs legendary video for her new song “Cellophane” below, subverts the ‘male-gaze’ and the degrading / predictable role of the female recording artist as ‘stripper-sex object-whore,’ to that of ‘elevated angel-woman-mother of all creation-and goddess incarnate.’  A true filmic masterpiece of visual work, and a stunning near a cappella delivery by Tahliah (FKA twigs) here, whose ethereal voice harkens to Julie Cruise’s work with David Lynch.  Reportedly citing “Germfree Adolescents” by X-Ray Spex as her favourite album of all time, and reportedly mentioning Siouxsie Sioux as an inspiration, FKA twigs is truly outstanding.” 

In the news: Some pop star got married. Like we care. Politicians are being idiots. What’s new?

Fake Climate Change 

If you are reading this and don’t believe in global warming or climate change, you need to stop reading this NOW and go back to kindergarten.

Political Piggies

The Center for Biological Diversity and allies sued the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this week for failing to protect endangered species from coal mining in Appalachia in violation of the Endangered Species Act.

Pollution, razing forests and blasting is pushing aquatic animals to the brink of extinction due to heavy political interference from the Trump administration, the organization states.

“Trump appointees have enabled a rubber-stamp system allowing mountains to be blown up and streams to be polluted without protection for endangered species or the human communities of Appalachia,” said Tierra Curry, a senior scientist at the Center. “It’s illegal and immoral and it needs to stop.”

Scientific studies have linked coal mining to declines in birds, fish, salamanders, crayfish, insects and freshwater mussels. More than 1 million acres of hardwood forest and more than 2,000 miles of streams have already been destroyed by surface coal mining in Appalachia.

Mining also threatens nearby communities with air and water pollution and risk of flooding. More than 20 peer-reviewed scientific studies have now linked mining pollution in Appalachia to health problems, including increased risk of disease and birth defects.

There’s a few people we can think of we’d like to throw in here, but of course, we will not as we don’t litter.  We do love the SMELL of the tar here, reminds us of that broken glass, grit, dirt and hot tar burning under I-90 and LSD (Lake Shore Drive) in those hot summer days in Chicago on the way cruising to see Ministry and more.

ANNA UDDENBERG: PRIVÉ
Through December 1 at Marciano Art Foundation: Privé, the first solo show in Los Angeles and first institutional show in the United States by the Berlin-based Swedish artist Anna Uddenberg, is currently on view in MAF’s Lounge Gallery. Through the lens of the feedback loop that is social media, Uddenberg analyzes systems of representation, the performativity of femme expressions and its cross-connection to consumer culture and gender studies. Her interest in femme as figuration is geared towards exploring power dynamics in the service domain, and disputes the idea of femininity by revealing what happens when these roles are amplified and over-performed to a degree of uncanny absurdity.

Female Sculptor Doris Caesar’s Work; Remembered

Doris Caesar; Woman, Sitting Back on Heels; 1964; Bronze;
31 1/2 x 24 x 14″

(1892–1971)

Doris Caesar was a passionate sculptor, distinguished by her radically elongated nude female forms. Her poignant renderings each embody the spirit and essence of a woman, with selective details that achieve a directness owed to Caesar’s tireless honing of her talent as a sculptor.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1892, Diane Caesar’s father encouraged her  love of the arts, She spent her teenage years dividing her time between a formal education at The Spence School, and the artistic environment of the Art Students League in Manhattan.

Putting her artistic career on hold for several years to raise her children, she began to return to her work as a sculptor in 1925, with support from her husband.  She then began her apprenticeship taught by one her greatest influences; cubist pioneer Alexander Archipenko.

In 1927, she formed a relationship with the Weyhe Gallery in New York which resulted in ongoing series of solo shows beginning in 1935. Caesar continued to pursue sculpting relentlessly, gaining momentum throughout the 1950’s with several successful solo shows. In 1959, she was featured prominently in the group show; Four American Expressionists, at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, where forty of her works were exhibited .  In addition to the Whitney where her work remains, her work is also exhibited in over thirty other museums. She continued to sculpt and exhibit her work throughout her life.

Cavalier Galleries in New York and Connecticut represents two of her esteemed works.
