Silverlake music Wunderkind KamranV and club Spaceland have launched a new label, Spaceland Recordings, that specializes in live shows. We had a chance to find out about the innovative project on a recent visit to the brand new ExPlex venue beneath the Echo.

Erin Broadley: How did this all begin?

KamranV: The way all this started was Billboard and the LA Times sort of simultaneously...

London artist Zoe Mendelson creates a sexual candyland in her paintings, drawings, and murals. While this can become a narrative fantasy world, there is no explicit story being told - sexual organs and acts morph/flow seamlessly into flora, fauna, and creatures. Like most artists I tend to gravitate towards, the beauty in her work, and the preciseness of its detail, captures the viewer's attention...

Great interview. I've been drawn to her work since I first saw one of her pieces two years ago.

Weird Hobbit Spam?

"the thrush, which merely fluttered aside and came back.
Drat the bird! said Bilbo crossly. I believe he is listening, and
I dont like the look of him."

I'm too tired to post more right now, but will tomorrow. Maybe some pics, too.

They were from the Netherlands, and it was around 1933. His Grandpop came to America for work, and they remained in touch via the post. After a couple of years, he wanted to bring her over, but he couldn't afford to go back and marry/escort his fiance to the U.S., so they wrote a letter to the Queen requesting the right marry by proxy. Her father stood in for his daughter's husband-to-be, and she came to the states just before most of The Netherlands' (and the rest of Europe's) Jewry was wiped out by Hitler and the Nazis.


This is like the stories I tell myself when I'm waiting for the bus; I'm so happy to hear that something like this happened to real people! If this is the first thing I'm to read today, I suspect I shall have an excellent morning.

CHRIST ON A CRACKER! It's always the most daring and improbable, against the odds stories that matter. Think of all the people in central Europe who got a bad feeling and left, before the mid-thirties, then later and later. Some people, conditioned to accept pogroms every generation or so with resignation, must have been just totally desensitized, tuned out, thought those who got out were nuts for a while.

No point getting depressed about all that; nationalism and genocide will never succeed in killing off any people who have soul. All of us alive on the planet right now are survivors, in one way or another. And whenever I start whining, I eventually think of people who had unspeakably awful conditions and were able to triumph over them.

Fuckin A', the hate and the love and the love and the hate; likeness and image of God and yet horribly scarred by the fall, or caught up in samsara, delusion, you name it baby.

A Spam Poem for DenimDemon

Water under the bridge. Your ass is grass. Timing is everything.
Sturdy as an oak. Stubborn as a mule. Rise and shine. The silly season.
Raking in the dough. Some like carrots others like cabbage. This is for
the birds. Rise and shine. What on earth? Water doesn't run uphill.
Water doesn't run uphill. They're like two...

Tight as a crab's ass, crazier 'n a pet coon, more nervous than a whore in church, grinnin' like a mule eatin' garlic, hornier 'n a three peckered billygoat, naked as the day you were born, drunk as a lord, howlin' like a hyena.

Oh Happy Day. My first profile post. It took me long enough. Generally speaking I'm way too overly analytical and self-conscious to journal or blog. I just don't think that anything I personally have to say is really relevant to anyone but myself. Except, that is, for how effing great my dog is. So that's what I'll post about. Here he...

Jupitron is my Transformer name. Helen High Water is my Native American name. Helen Wheels is my Hell's Angels name. Helen Back is where I'm gonna take ya. Helen Earth is what I am.
