GETTING SICK IN THE MOSH PIT

Nixon’s next leg of their rotating art installment will be hitting Downtown San Diego on November 16 at 1037 J. Street. Meshing the talents of some of the industry’s best filmers and photo junkies, it’s actually a swinging party disguised as a pseudo high-brow gathering. This time around, style makers Taylor Dunfee, Grant Brittan, Chivo, Dustin Ortiz, Tyler Nelson, Michael Carter, Dave Swift, Rob Machado, and a few other sickos will be exhibiting.

COMPLETELY FIXATED

If you’re new to the fixed bike phenom, we’re here to tell you there’s just no stopping ‘em. Pardon the pun, but it’s sorta funny when one of the hottest trends on both coasts is geared (oops, there’s another one) towards passive death-wishers. As the original racing bikes, “fixies”, as they’re called, are sans breaks. Slowing and stopping is done the Fred Flintsone way. All the rage among LA and NYC hipsters, their popularity is getting just about everyone to slow down and take notice. Jocko Weyland’s recent New York Times piece gives an in-depth perspective to this thrill ride, as does this extensive Fixed Gear Gallery.

We recently came across these two all-time clips of Wait’s doing what he does best. The first is an intro to an appearance on “Soundstage.” The second is a rare music video directed by Anders Lövgren.

PARK LIFE IS #1

How quickly they grow. It seems like only yesterday that Park Life came screaming into this world, and now they’re already a year old. To celebrate, they’ve planed a major benefit / exhibition shindig, featuring the works of more than 30 artists who have helped in their success. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be given to the SF Coalition on the Homeless. The show will run from Nov. 2 – Dec. 5, 2007.
