Jeffro’s Fish & Bird

It’s relaxing to chill out and watch Jeff methodically ink some special work. Says Jeffro:

Upcoming Tom Waits Tribute Art Show at Atlantis, the Lost Bar–small group of artists. Tight theme, paying homage to one of my artistic heroes. I’ve done many drafts on the theme of this song over the years, but couldn’t get it right. I think I’m getting it this time–realizing that humpback whales usually breach the surface spinning upside down.

If the ink drawing turns out how I want it to, I will have a limited edition color print made for the show.

Mike Bell & the Movies Punched in the Face a Lot

The second video from previously mentioned Goal Achievement Club is the official music video for the Mike Bell & the Movies track “Everyone,” in which Mike takes some blows to the head in delightful slo-mo:

Also get into this interesting bonus footage from camera 2 for a look behind the scenes:

“Everyone” by Mike Bell & the Movies is from the album Nothing Works now available on Major Bear Records and iTunes.

Soxx’s Happy Trash Month

Soxx's Happy Trash Month

Check it out, Soxx (artist Jenny Drumgoole) is soliciting your cash to fund a month of eight surprise trash day parties for Philadelphia sanitation workers. It’s been almost a year since Soxx’s Happy Trash Day parties began, and funding this will provide the means for Soxx to get the party supplies she needs (glitter, beans, balloons, refreshments, etc.) for this final Happy Trash Month after which Soxx will march her life size papier-mâché trash collector to City Hall for a special trash day celebration for mayor Michael “Mix Master Mike” Nutter. See, Happy Trash Day indirectly raises awareness of an ongoing issue facing the sanitation workers: they’ve been working without a raise or contract for over five years. Soxx’s celebrations of trash day also acknowledge the essential services that the trash collectors provide the city all year long, which otherwise gets ignored at best. Here’s a widget thing which I selected because it also shows the funding percentage and days left. This is a 15 day funding drive:

Some of the rewards include a custom beaned DVD case and DVD of all the trash day parties, buttons, custom watercolors of trash day moments (by Soxx), and even an opportunity to choose one of the trash day party themes or have Soxx throw a trash day party in your own neighborhood (within 200 miles of Philly) for your own trash collector crew.
