This week on the blog we went to Castillo; we listened the conversation between Davide Balula and Francesco Stocchi; we passed by the Vincennes Zoo and visited the new show by Neu Gallery at La Douane.

Last night Family reopened their bookshop for the launch of Sean Wilsey’s new book ‘More Curious,’ published by McSweeney’s. Family was closed over the summer and during that time did a bit of renovating.

Family co-owner David Jacob Kramer introduced author Sean Wilsey, who read from his new book of essays. Wilsey is an engaged reader who took us on a journey across the United States. He told us about the car he purchased for 12K that couldn’t go above 40mph, his traveling companions, like his dog Charlie, and, he imitated Southern accents for a few of the characters. Comedian Molly Shannon, joined Wilsey at the end of the evening for a lively interview and conversation about his new book and his writing process.

I am excited to see one of my favorite art book stores in Los Angeles back in biz, and look forward to reading the copy of Wilsey’s 2005 memoir, ‘Oh the Glory of It All’ which I picked up at the end of the night.

WEEKLY WRAP UP | JULY 21- 25, 2014


Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains

This week, I watched the Swedish film We Are The Best! and I remembered one of my favorite films from when I was a kid, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains. The film is full of awesome teenage punk fashion straight out of the 1980s. I had to post more pictures.

dlaneWe also took a walk this week through the Autry Museum in Los Angeles, where we saw the exhibitions, Route 66, and Floral Journey: Native North American Bead Work. We attended the opening of The White Album at Richard Telles Fine Arts in L.A., and in Paris, we watched Pierre Henry in concert, and announced the Paris book launch of Schizo-Culture.
