an early start

michigan is currently having a heat wave. this week it is going to be in the 80s... the 80s! i'm convinced it's here to stay and there are no freak frosts in our future, however, last year it didn't get this hot until may. gardening has begun and these beautiful images of beetlebung farm by photographer gabriela herman make me want to get my hands dirty.

join us

ben convinced me to watch 80s horror classic, the evil dead, this weekend. and, while it wasn't really my thing, i did admire the rotting corpse via claymation closing scene. the movie's sequel is a re-make of the original, an idea that brookyn-based artist kadar brock uses in his exhibition (with matt jones) evil dead 2, currently at the horton gallery in nyc. for the exhibit, brock cannibalized his own work—pealing and sanding away paint and color until little remained.
