    Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi ...Come celebrate ..Birthday time !

    in Pop Culture

    Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. Raised in Whittier, California, he studied drawing and painting at California State University, Fullerton. Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia. He inspired extensive international press coverage in 1988 when he founded Kostabi World, his Manhattan art studio, which employs numerous painting assistants and idea people. Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene. 
    Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey. Kostabi is the subject of numerous documentary films.Kostabi has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Eye to Eye with Connie Chung, A Current Affair, Nightwatch , The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Nonsolomoda, West 57th, CNN, MTV and numerous television programs throughout Europe and Japan.His permanent public works include a mural in Palazzo dei Priori in Arezzo, Italy, a large bronze sculpture in the central square of San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, and a bronze portrait of Pope John Paul II in Velletri, Italy. http://mkostabi.com

    In December 2014, Tasjan spent a week recording In the Blazes at New Monkey Studio in Los Angeles, the same hallowed space where Elliott Smith cut his final record From a Basement on the Hill. At the helm for the sessions was Tasjan’s good buddy Eli Thomson of the band Everest, whom he’d met on tour while pulling a stint with Brooklyn indie-folk outfit Alberta Cross, and who produced Delta Spirit’s Ode to Sunshine. “Eli is a very grounded dude, personality-wise—he has a zen way of being,” Tasjan says. “On a subconscious level, that’s a comforting thing to be around during the creative process. You’re relaxed enough to try new things and blow it. And for better or worse, part of my thing is messing up—I have to mess it up first to do it great. Really, that idea permeates my life, far beyond being a songwriter,” Tasjan explains. “I always identify with the underdog. Some people, if you look at ‘em, you wouldn’t think much of them, but then they surprise you. It turns out there’s something about them that blows your mind. And that’s kind of the overarching theme of most of the songs on In the Blazes.”Truth in advertising—In the Blazes finds Aaron Lee Tasjan more than just one toke over the line. But it’s cool. The charmingly self-deprecating underdog of an East Nashville songwriter can handle his shit. Instead of the munchies, young gun Tasjan—who cut his teeth playing lead guitar in late-period incarnations of The New York Dolls and Drivin N Cryin—wound up with one hell of a debut LP.

    Yusef Shakur talks about community why its important and what is zone 8? InBigD!

    in Pop Culture

    Measuring neighborhood quality is important for shaping many public policies. For instance, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) is intended to expand social and economic opportunities “outside areas of poverty or minority concentration” (HUD 2008: ch. 2, p. 2-1). In other words, the program is designed to promote access to decent and affordable housing in higher quality neighborhoods compared with neighborhoods of traditional public housing projects

    'ANTM' Recap: Will Drama Cost One Model the Title?

    in Pop Culture

    Aghhhhhhh! I hate being right. (Not really) Okay, it is what it is. After everything that happened during this episode -- Mikey's body not cooperating, Lacey butting in on Mame's photo shoot, Lacey doing slutty poses, Mame freaking out over the potential ruin of her romance with Justin -- who will Tyra announce as the two final finalists on the final America's Next Top Model catwalk? My esteemed colleague Jennifer Lind-Westbrook has anopinion that you are welcome to, but I want to know how you think ANTM will wrap up.


    In our poll about which two will be the last models of the cycle, 55% said Nyle and Lacey, while 34% said Nyle and Mame. Unfortunately, Mikey only got 11% of the 1,037 votes to date. I have to agree that Nyle will be the last man standing. As for the girls ... flip a coin ... but I have more faith in Mame's abilities.


    Now it's your turn to vote for who you think will take home the money, the modeling contract with NEXT and the fashion spread with Zappos Couture.

    20 years or so ago, Thanksgiving officially surpassed Christmas as my favorite holiday. Because that’s around the time “food” finally surpassed “new wallets and sweaters from The Gap” on my importance scale.

    Real Housewives of Atlanta’ recap (‘Party in a Sweatbox’): Season 8, Episode 3

    in Pop Culture

    Later, a calmer (and perhaps sadder) Cynthia admitted that she and Peter hadn't had any communication for 10 full days. "It doesn't feel good to come home to an empty bed night after night," she lamented before finally coming face-to-face with her significant other.

    Though it was clear that their wounds were still raw, both Peter and Cynthia seemed to want to talk things out. "I felt like you acted completely inappropriately at the party," Cynthia told her husband, who admitted he was "inebriated" when he arrived at the eyewear event where he'd argued with her friends.

    Peter seemed to think that their troubles stemmed from putting work ahead of their marriage, while Cynthia focused on a more general "disconnect" between them. Cynthia couldn't help but point out, however, that Peter was the one who decided to open a bar in Charlotte, far from where they lived. He didn't like that so much
