Love these paintings of TP’d trees, demolition derby glory, and stretching the truth by Christian Herr.
Kameraet is a fun and silly video made by Marc Reisbig & Hanne Berkaak in 2009 for Gyldendal Education for a Norwegian digital educational website for children. The video was shot in a garage in Oslo, Norway using stop motion animation. If you like dragons blowing bubbles, mushroom happy faces, and dancing owls I suggest you press play.
It’s Friday and after a long week at the office I feel like dancin! By Electrocinema.
If you don’t want to shout “FUCK CHEVRON & TEXACO” at the end of watching Crude I’ll give you a dollar. I’m disgusted by yet another example of greedy corporate companies taking advantage of the innocent and the poor. Okay I’m done venting. Here is what Crude is about.
Three years in the making, this cinéma-vérité feature from acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster) is the epic story of one of the largest and most controversial environmental lawsuits on the planet. The inside story of the infamous “Amazon Chernobyl” case, Crude is a real-life high stakes legal drama, set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, the media, multinational corporate power, and rapidly-disappearing indigenous cultures. Presenting a complex situation from multiple viewpoints, the film subverts the conventions of advocacy filmmaking, exploring a complicated situation from all angles while bringing an important story of environmental peril and human suffering into focus.

I haven’t seen a show that has blown me a away in some time so it was amazing to see the current show at Ace Gallery by John Millei. I wasn’t familiar with Millei’s work but apparently he’s been making abstract painting for a while, working in various styles and techniques. I had a few minutes to walk through the show but I can easily say that this is some of the most important abstract painting being done in the last 10 years. My favorite pieces in the show were the black, white, and silver paintings from the Quicksilver, and Maritime series. These are massive paintings that command attention in both their complex compositions and masterly paint handling. The photos just don’t do the work justice as the subtle colors and layering are lost in translation. If you’re in the LA area do yourself a favor and check out this show. I already have plans to make a second and third trip myself.
