"If You're Reading This, There's Still Time." by Morley.  Out NOW!

“If You’re Reading This, There’s Still Time.” by Morley. Out NOW!

Artist Morley has not only made the leap from the streets to galleries, but he can also add ‘Author’ to his list of career highlights.  His first book “If You’re Reading This, There’s Still Time.” is out now!  If you are unfamiliar with Morley’s work, you can remedy that by reading a Q&A Morley and I did in 2011 (wow, where does the time go?!) and you will instantly fall in love with his wit (and as a bonus, he sent us a photo of his cat Nelson wearing a sweater!).   Morley’s art has been seen all over the world and he is equal parts Banksy and Steven Wright.  Needless to say, I’ve loved his work for years and I am ecstatic about this book!  Congratulations Morley!!!

An Encounter with FKA Twigs (Tahliah Barnett)

FKA Twigs (Tahliah Barnett) and Geoffrey Dicker

Hot new artist alert!  Tahliah Barnett, better known as FKA Twigs is a trip hop/R&B/pop singer from Britain and in addition to her gorgeous look, her music is infectious.  She performed a show at Glasslands in Brooklyn the other night and whilst she kept the mood going by virtually performing in the dark, that makes for horrible photos.  So in lieu of those, I will tell you that FKA stands for “formerly known as” since another artist named Twigs was upset that she took on the name Twigs, which refers to the sound her joints make when they crack.  Learn more about FKA Twigs on her website.  Best of luck to you Tahliah and I look forward to seeing you again!

I would love to tell you all about how this photo came about, how much I love Chuck Palahniuk and how cool he was to take a photo with me, but the first rule of Fight Club is….

Thanks Chuck!

Maja Ivarsson of The Sounds

On April 10, 2014, Sweden’s The Sounds made their return to the Manhattan stage at Webster Hall.  The group’s music is part rock, part punk and part electronic and when you cook up those components coupled with lead singer Maja Ivarsson’s great rock and roll stage presence, that makes for one hell of a show.  They are on tour to promote their 2013 album “Weekend.”  But since this post was written on ‘Flashback Friday,’ let’s rewind and go back a few years for the video clip you are about to see.  After diving into the audience for a crowd sing-a-long (see photo below), The Sounds performed their 2006 single “Tony The Beat” which you are about to watch.

Miley Cyrus riding a hot dog!

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d say:  I went to the Miley Cyrus concert and loved it!  Despite thinking her music is largely terrible (and the show did little to change my mind on that), her performance was excellent.  From LSD-inspired trippy visuals, to midgets running around on stage to covering songs by Lana Del Rey, Bob Dylan, Coldplay and Dolly Parton (see below for a video of her covering Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”), to twerking on top of a gold-plated car to riding around on a flying hot dog, which has now set the bar higher for every performer that comes after her, you can say a lot of things about Miley Cyrus (like ‘it seems kind of pervy that we are forced to look at her body that looks like she is 10 years younger than her actual age’), but you cannot say she doesn’t give a hell of a show.  More photos from her sold out concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on April 5, 2014 will be coming soon, but for now, enjoy her cover of “Jolene” by Dolly Parton.
