“Kings of Graffiti”

“Kings of Graffiti”
a new documentary from Doug Pray the director of the wonderful movie “Scratch” is Clawpawcurrently being filmed in New York City. “Kings of Graffiti” is about the art and lives of seven notorious graffiti writers. from the inside info we got, this looks like an amazing documentary that promises to capture the real feel of the graffiti scene and people who live and breathe it, something that’s yet to be done. as we get more info, we’ll keep you updated on the movie’s filming and release.

punk rock, tattoos and hot rods

punk rock, tattoos and hot rods
this coming weekend is the annual Woodstock Tattoo and Body Arts Festival. Tattoofestival_1 despite poor recall due to several illegal substances consumed – we can vouch that last year’s festival was a KILLER TIME! the festival (and the rocker, punk, tattoo freaks who attend) take over the town. shops and cafes are packed with some of the worlds best tattoo artists. you can grab a tat or watch some of the mind-blowing work being done. there’s also a “country fair” atmosphere with funny hippie stuff, t-shirts, tasty food and alcohol being sold around town. and the bars and performance spaces are stacked with line-ups of great bands (like legendary NY hardcore and punk band Murphy’s Law, and the kick-ass chick fronted metal band Grounded). $18 gets you into every show and venue for the day. we go early check out all the fun stuff, watch some tattooing, see friends, eat and drink, and then bounce around checking out bands and partying into the night.

AND as luck would have it, the same weekend, right across the river in Rhinebeck is the massive east coast Hot Rod and Classic Car Show, featuring over 1,500 rods, customs, classics & muscle cars. This show is fantastic, the cars are so fucking hot! a nice way to wind down on Sunday afternoon.

it’s PhotoFriday, yay!

it’s PhotoFriday, yay!
we’re addicted to the incredible diversity and accessibility of photographic art on the net. there are thousands of beautiful, moving and creative photo sites out there, and they’re growing daily. from massive sites like Fotolog to Typepad, it’s becoming difficult to simply jump in and find something new.

so when we spotted PhotoFriday a couple weeks ago (on WhatISee, a site we like), it’s clean, simple and lightly focused style quickly drew us in! each week a topic is posted and anyone can post their photographic interpretation (part of what we love about PhotoFriday is that there aren’t a ton of rules) different topics get different levels of response but there’s usually several hundred. it would be hard to get through them all each week, but we don’t even try. just a few random clicks will yield plenty of interesting and diverse photo sites to look through. click on “linkviewer” for super easy browsing (and the noteworthy section directs you to some of the best.) and entering your own photo adds another way to have fun! here’s our shot for this weeks topic “Blossom” -
