dip dip di

I have been watching The Exchange for a while now and thought I would share it with all y'all. A graffiti artist named Jersey Joe hosts a kind of cultural trade amongst some of the worlds great graffiti writers who trade sketches that are to be painted at a later date. It is definately interesting to see these masters interpretations of peoples names, as well as the final products. Definately good times

More Le Parkour....a growing obsession

Urban Freeflow has been feeding my growing enthusiasm for Le Parkour, the crazy freestyle gymnastic action that has been making the rounds in commercials and even a Tony Hawk video game. I guess this is where you can get the skinny on whats going down here in Seattle

Hitting Tiles

I simply cannot get enough of this tribute site to Del mar Skateboard Ranch. When I first started to get really into skating this place was the Mecca alongside Upland Pipeline. The sickness that came out of these spots is insane. I love skateboarding. I can't believe it's been a part of my life for 20 years.

Blacken Caricature

Holy batsnaps, Toru Nishimaki scares me. I just got an email from 'em and wow. This is pretty cool, in a very creepy way.

Ritual territory marking for god

I find "Painter of Light" Thomas Kinkade to be completely interesting. His art is ridiculously corny but homie made $53million over the last three years. Well dude is often getting Crunk and belligerent and here is a great story in the LA Times about all the people suing his righteous ass.

A Plea for Support from the Seattle Channel

Art Zone on Seattle Channel

Art Zone will be a pioneering first-in-the-nation TV project that could help transform the way people access the arts in this community. As part of a new City of Seattle cable TV franchise agreement, the Seattle Channel has asked Comcast for $500,00 per year for 10 years for funding of Art Zone…local arts TV programming. Comcast has agreed. Approval of the deal must be given by the Seattle City Council after a public hearing and review process.

Arts and music is both a cultural catalyst and an economic driver for our region. The arts build community and are vital to our childrens education. If you think TV coverage of local arts is important please urge the Council to approve this Art Zone funding. This is new money for arts coverage and will purchase increased resources for programming covering and promoting local arts, music and culture in all forms on both television and the Internet.

This programming will focus on getting people to go out and participate in the rich cultural life of our community. The Art Zone will begin as 12 hours of weekly programming on Seattle Channel 21, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 8pm to midnight.

The Seattle Channel named 2005 Best Public TV Station by Seattle Weekly, is proposing to partner with the community artists and arts groups, promoting their events, shooting video of rehearsals and performances, interviewing artists and musicians, profiling organizations, and encouraging viewers to buy tickets and attend concerts, plays, shows, and exhibits.

The Council Energy and Technology committee will discuss the legislation at 9:30 a.m. on March 8. The Seattle City Council will have a public hearing at 5:30 on March 30 in the Shaw Room at Seattle Center, followed by a vote on April 17, 2006.

Please make a phone call, send an e-mail or letter to the Councilmembers listed below or come and speak in person at the hearing to let them know of your support.
