My friend Mileece composed the music ('Nightfall' from the album Formations) used in this video. It is as beautiful as she is. The filming and editing was done by Leo. Skateboarding's never been so chill.
The Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco is pleased to announce an exhibit of work by Alex Schweder, titled Ours. The show will include the large-scale pieces Plumbing Us, Our Weight Around Us, and an installation of scratch-and-sniff wallpaper.
My husband, Silvio has the great distinction of having worked on one of the top ten best video games in history (ranked by many different news outlets, game polls, etc.), Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. He also has worked on a game voted one of the top ten worst in history, Fight For Life (I believe it was IGN that gave them this distinction). Can't say he does anything mediocre. Now another game he's worked on has made a top ten list! Huffington Post has named Squash the $treet #5 on their list of "10 Inappropriate iPhone Apps"!
Financial Crisis? Let your rage rain down on the crooks and swindlers who caused it.
Watch the shady bankers, creepy fraudsters and corrupt CEOs flee their gilded offices, sprinting for the nearest escape vehicle. Squash and flick the snarky scoundrels up and down the streets and sidewalks in the festering heart of the city where all the thievery and greed began.

We're Not The Jet Set: EXENE CERVENKA | WAYNE WHITE
July 25 – September 5, 2009 Opening Reception: Saturday, July 25, 5:00 – 8:00 pm
Western Project is proud to present Exene Cervenka and Wayne White in We’re Not the Jet Set. Each a long time resident of Los Angeles, they address contemporary America with an urban sensibility and found objects. Wayne White paints language on vintage framed lithographs, recalling the intelligence and incisive bite of Mark Twain. Exene Cervenka, lead singer of the seminal punk band X, collages remnants from her travels across the US: photographs, children’s books, bullet boxes and other familiar pieces of Americana. Both artists point to a shared history – a Pop culture and cosmology illuminating the light and darker aspects of our society. Cervenka unabashedly explores desire and consequence; White’s paintings are colloquial tidbits, humorous tales of knowledge. Both are after a kind of wisdom within the shadows of human nature. While clearly in the lineage of Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Cornell, these artists cut to the chase about who we are and what we are up to.
"Studies say that drivers using phones are four times as likely to cause a crash as other drivers, and the likelihood that they will crash is equal to that of someone with a .08 percent blood alcohol level, the point at which drivers are generally considered intoxicated. Research also shows that hands-free devices do not eliminate the risks, and may worsen them by suggesting that the behavior is safe."
The interface is the bridge and bottleneck between humans and
computers. Over the past 50 years researchers have invented and
imagined many and various interfaces to join synapse and transistor. In
this talk Jamie will give a brief history of human-computer interaction
research and we’ll watch videos of seminal interfaces from Sutherland’s
Sketchpad in ‘63 up through the latest nerdtastic work at MIT and elsewhere.
