FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Book

A Hilarious New Book “I WON THE INTERNET! – DAILY WIT, WISDOM AND SELFIES, ACCORDING TO G.” To Be Released In September 2014

New York, NY (September 10, 2014) – Poet and blogger Geoffrey Dicker announces his third book, “I WON THE INTERNET! – DAILY WIT, WISDOM AND SELFIES, ACCORDING TO G,” which will be available to purchase through Amazon on September 20, 2014. The book chronicles some of the encounters of a “modern day Zelig” who has met a celebrity born on each day of the year (including Oprah Winfrey, Bono, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Morrissey, James Franco, Lady Gaga, Joan Rivers, Bryan Cranston, Jane Fonda and Ringo Starr) and presents his witty and uncensored one-liners and words of wisdom disguised as Status Updates and Tweets. Dicker encourages the reader to use this book as a guide to put them at the forefront of pop culture. It’s literally three books in one!

The book contains two sections of thoughtful and hilarious ideas for people to ponder and share online to make them the most popular person in their social media newsfeed. The third section is dedicated to “Selfies” which showcase a small portion of Dicker’s impressive celebrity autograph and selfie photo collection. Using this book as a daily calendar, readers get the chance to view these superstars and legends in the making in an entirely different light. The book features 365 exclusive color photographs of some of the biggest names in entertainment, music and art, and features cover art by pop artist Troy Gua.

“As a consumer of social media, I got sick of seeing people posting the same ideas and being afraid to voice their opinion as it might not be politically correct, so I’ve written this book to help people find new things to complain and laugh about. This book is my response to some of the good and not so good things I’ve experienced on line as well as some satire on social (and anti-social) media and the current state of the world. Plus, there are 365 exclusive color photos of celebrities!” Dicker said.

For celebrity enthusiasts, pop culture critics and aspiring social media superstars, this book is a must read. Featuring 365 exclusive color photos, the book is available in September 2014 from Amazon. Go viral!

If you are a fan of Roy Lichtenstein’s work, you will definitely want to head over to Flag Art Foundation in New York and check out their exhibit of his work entitled “Intimate Sculptures.”

The exhibit is laid out as if you were in someone’s living room and Lichtenstein’s sculptures decorate the area.  It indeed feels intimate and you may find yourself wanting to be a squatter in this living space.

The C24 Gallery in New York has an interesting summer group show (yes, I realize those two phrases are mutually exclusive) at the moment called “Yell-o.”  It features 4 artists and here’s a bit about each one.  Nick Gentry from the UK (see above and below for a close up) uses old hard disks as a canvas.

Adele Mills

Adele Mills

American artist Adele Mills creates multi-dimensional artworks by combining slightly different photographs of the same object or two entirely different illusions, resulting in changing, seemingly moving image. She achieves this visual effect by creating a layered visual – a digitally printed photograph based on paper or linen, merged with painted acrylics on layers of transparent silk.

Last but not least,

J Mikal Davis

J Mikal Davis

American artist J. Mikal Davis, who is also known as Hellbent in the world of street art, paints geometric patterns that give his works a very cool 3-D effect.

If any of these works appeal to you, there are plenty more at the C24 Gallery, which is located at 514 West 24th Street in Manhattan.  “Yell-o” is on display through August 23, 2014.

RIP, Meshach Taylor

Sad news out of Hollywood.  Actor Meshach Taylor has died from cancer.  I met Meshach several times during the height of his run as Anthony on “Designing Women,” and he was always extremely nice towards his fans.  As you can see above, he had a beautiful autograph too.  Rest easy Meshach!  Thanks for all the laughs you’ve given us!

Francisco Franco by Eugenio Merino

New York!  Head over to Unix Gallery to see a great and controversial exhibit by Spanish artist Eugenio Merino entitled “Always Shameless.”  In the exhibit he takes the bodies of world dictators and preserves their bodies not in a cryogenics chamber, but instead inside a Coca-Cola refrigerator.  Genius!
