Part two of my and RobinTheWagon’s super subjective search for The Greatest Sleater-Kinney Song Of All Time is UP NOW.

Please enjoy these scanned photos of Sleater-Kinney playing live during the Toni Gogin era. I didn’t take these myself, they were sent to me by zine pen pals back in the day, but I don’t remember which. If you took these photos THANK YOU and please let me know!

WHICH SONG WILL WIN? READ THE POST!

Mako Miyamoto’s “Speculative Hunting.”

Opening this Saturday, April 25th, 2015 at Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco, California is Mako Miyamoto’s “Speculative Hunting,” an exhibit of the Neon Werewolf series of photographs that have made Mako famous.  Disguising his human characters with Wookie masks, Miyamoto is able to explore the human condition from a stand alone perspective, that is - unlike anyone else is doing.  The show will be on display until May 16th, 2016.

I always keep wondering where we did wrong. I remember we were so happy and we were always there for each other. What happened to those late night conversations? What happened to those days when we were cuddling in bed while it was raining? What happened to our little kisses? What happened to our love? Well maybe love isn’t always enough. I find myself moving on and you finding someone new. And I’ll never forget you. I’ll always love you just not in the same way anymore.

Inspired by Diane Meyer’s exquisitely embroidered photographs, I have done a few of my own, from old family holidays to more current photos that are all memories for me.

By cross stitching small areas of the photographs, those areas become almost pixelated. It blurs the images to create something more than just a photograph, it becomes something sentimental, more reminiscent of a memory.
