Sometimes I get really weak in my knees, and then when I get weak in my knees I fall head over heels. And like every other like you know cheesy cliché. Sometimes I get swept off of my feet, and then I have this thing…this thing where my heart it skips a beat. And there’s…so I really have one thing to say. What is medically wrong with me?

EDIT: It was 7:40am (I was half asleep and sick) when I was listening to the podcast, and I couldn’t come up with the title of Chester’s song. I noticed this while I was in class and nearly cursed out loud in the lecture. Sorry for the confusion.

I made a speed painting/podcast. If you like listening to a guy with a heavy accent ramble his way through, and an intelligent dude with his shit together, it might be your thing.

It’s mostly going to be on art/animation industry related and such. It’s kinda terrible right now, being the first episode, introduction and such. But it will hopefully be better the more times I do this.

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast — our 150th show! — features curator and historian Nenette Luarca-Shoaf and artist Sonya Clark.

Luarca-Shoaf is one of the curators of "Navigating the West: George Caleb Bingham and the River," which opens at the Amon Carter Museum on October 2. Bingham was the first great American artist to take the newly opened trans-Appalachian West as his subject. A Missourian, Bingham paintings of waterways, typically presumed to be those in his native state but in reality images that filled in for the river culture that dominated trade and the movement of people through the Ohio, Missouri and Mississippi River valleys, represent America’s first major visual grappling with the enormity and variety of our continent. ”Navigating the West” examines how Bingham both created his art and some of America’s first ideas about the West. The show will travel to the St. Louis Art Museum and to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The catalogue is published by Yale University Press. Luarca-Shoaf is one of the half-dozen or so curators and conservators who worked on the exhibition. 

This is Bingham’s Boatmen on the Missouri (1846) from the collection of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. It will be included in the Amon Carter Museum exhibition. Click on the image to expand it to 1,200px wide.

We talk to some of the people that helped in making Train’s new album—Bulletproof Picasso—and we sit down with Pat’s ‘Wonder What You’re Doing’ duet partner, Marsha Ambrosius, and find out how she ended up working with the biggest singers in the world. Plus, we’ll hear lots of new music from Train. It’s a making of/behind the scenes episode of the Patcast!

Six Feats Under Presents: Breakfast Cult Complete

Character art by Gnome— left to right, Mordechai (Medibot), Edgar (Ambisagrus), Chet “The Toaster” (Ironicus), Manah (Gnome) and Aubrey (Clove)

Breakfast Cult Chat: Setting and Maintaining Tone

Ettin, Gnome, and Clove, some of the developers of the FATE game Breakfast Cult, join Ironicus, Ambisagrus, and Medibot to discuss maintaining tone in games, from lighthearted to darkly serious.

Part 1: Detention

Ettin, Gnome, and Clove, some of the developers of the FATE game Breakfast Cult, join Ironicus, Medibot, and Ambisagrus— in detention. Someone among their classmates broke into the forbidden underground archives, and stole something powerful and dangerous— if they can’t find out who, they’ll miss the big game, and be consumed by some cyclopean horror!

Part 2: Intro to Botany; Investigative Journalism

The team splits up to search for clues, following the enormous roots that continue to spread across campus— research indicates the culprit is an interplanetary organism with a penchant for “upgrading”. Conflicting characters collide, with explosive results.

Part 3: Teamwork Seminar; Physical Education

The team has a hard time covering up their escape from the principal, who is quick to notice (for example) the burning greenhouse. All hints, cryptocurrencies, and doors,even those which open into another dimensions, lead back to the grossest little man on campus— what was his name, again..?

Part 4: Final Bell

With a distinct lack of subtlety, Jorts’ foul plans (and a good number of his plant-zombie clones and creations) are tackled straight into another dimension, and pruned for good. As the smoke clears, it becomes apparent that perhaps more attention should have been paid to another student’s ambitions.
