Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.
ANNOUNCING THINK TANK’S SUMMER 2014 SHOW - CHILLED AIR
CHILLED AIR is a group art exhibition using art to create an experience that is intellectually and physically stimulating for the viewer, drawing inspiration from how movie theaters operated during the Great Depression. In the 30s, the US experienced the worst economic and environmental disaster in its history. The Great Depression ravaged the country’s economy while its landscape was destroyed by the Dust Bowl.
With little to no job opportunities and a severe drought in full effect, there wasn’t much hope to be found in everyday life. While many industries collapsed during this time, movie theatres flourished because they were able to provide people with things they desperately needed: hope, the rare moment away from unrelenting heat in an air conditioned building, and a platform for the exchange of new ideas.
CHILLED AIR takes place amidst what might become the biggest economic catastrophe of our time. The Skate Art Park is our modern day movie theatre, providing physical and creative stimulus for contemporary viewers, featuring works by individual artists in a variety of mediums including video – some who also teamed up with Keen Ramps to a build the collaborative skate park installation. The show will open on Go Skateboarding Day, will be free to the public, and will remain open as the only evening skate park on the east side for its three-week run time.
Come down to Think Tank Gallery on June 21st, Go Skateboarding Day, to look at some art, skate around, listen to live music by Yarrow Slaps, Luke Pelletier and more, and escape the LA heat!
Can we talk for a moment about how AJ Chegwidden from JAG was the lawyer defending Gibbs? I just about fell out of my chair when I saw that face I had watched for nearly a decade just reappear…Holy crap, I loved Chegwidden, and his new beard is so badass, and I miss JAG like crazy.
JAG was NCIS’ predecessor and I will remember that series for the rest of time. It made me want to be a badass like Mac and marry a pilot like Harm - it made me want to be a lawyer, it sparked my love for airplanes. And Harm and Mac and their longing glances…don’t even get me started.
HAHA remember that JAG episode where the admiral was up in the F-14 with Harm, and he had gas, and accidentally pulled the ejection bar? Eermahgawd. And that time he nearly kissed Mac…woah, what a moment. And it was his coin that they flipped in the series finale ; _ ;
Chegwidden was the greatest - and obviously the best choice to defend Gibbs. It totally re-opened all of my JAG feels. I was probably the only 11 year old girl on earth watching JAG and building model airplanes…good times <3
