Photos by G except where noted. Art by Judith Supine.
The back story of street artist Judith Supine is quite interesting. He was unable to speak until the age of 17 and he adopted his mother’s maiden name as a persona and for the duration of his career has kept his actual identity hidden. Until now! At his exhibit “Golden Child” at MECKA Gallery in Brooklyn, the artist showed his face for the first time. And a good looking face it is.
The exhibit is located in the heart of Brooklyn (read: far for Manhattanites), but if you are a lover of street art, it will be worth the trek. Unfortunately, it’s unclear if this exhibit is a one night only affair or not (read: if you want free publicity or people to show up, you should at least put the who, where, what on your goddamned website!)
Speaking of Anthony Michael Sneed, whose work I am a huge fan of, he was kind enough to take a photo of Judith Supine and myself. Full disclosure: I attempted a selfie but Judith is tall and I am very short and the photo I took was a hot mess!
See what Judith Supine looks like, after the jump!
I saw this mural in Brooklyn recently. These two ladies are fans of the late Lou Reed as the woman on the left is wearing a “Transformer” T-shirt (and on her fingers, the words “Wild Side” for “Walk on the Wild Side” are tattooed). The lady on the right is a Velvet Underground fan and she is wearing the iconic Andy Warhol image that is also the cover of The VU’s first album with Nico. If you know the artist of this cool mural, please let us know in the comments section.

If you like the mellow vibes of The XX, you will like the mellow vibes of London Grammar. The trio is getting ready to dominate the music world and when you hear the amazing set of pipes lead singer Hannah Reid has, you will not wonder why. London Grammar played an intimate set at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on January 15, 2014 and the place was packed to the rafters. They played for just about an hour and one of the highlights was their cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Games.” Excuse the heads in the way and the few times the video may jump. You do the best you can in these situations.
Congratulations! By seeing this post, you’ve stumbled onto a blog that in 5 short years has written over 6,500 posts primarily about art, music and celebrities and other miscellaneous things I’ve experienced in person. Every post features world exclusive photos. What a concept!!! If you can find another site on the net that has these types of characteristics, please put me in touch with them. I’m always looking for people who inspire me. The sites I tend to see on the internet tend to be people who have no opinion of their own to voice until they receive a press release which they can straight up regurgitate. I find that very sad and uninspiring.
In the meanwhile, here’s a video I took of the all mighty MGMT performing the brilliant track “Congratulations” live at Barclays Center on December 13, 2013.
