Sounds of the city

there are 3 man-made sounds of civilization i love. the church bell ringing at noon, a train's horn in the distance, and the wheels of a skateboard clicking across the sidewalk.

Newest post for Diane Pernet's A Shaded View On Fashion


I've been lagging on posts here, but you can find me sometimes over on the legendary Diane Pernet's site "A Shaded View On Fashion." I've admired her work for years, so its an honor to be an LA correspondent for her site.

As they say, "write what you know." So here is the latest.

Dear Diane, Dear Shaded Viewers,
I feel that there are certain artists who tap into "it." They have a talent to organize and communicate a nostalgic mixture of pop, counter-culture and psychedelia with their own point of view. Its capturing the spirit of freedom, "outlaws" and forward thinkers. They trip us up with their psychology. Is the work from then, now, or the future? In more simple terms, I like what I see here. I am happy to encounter the artists and works below that I'd like to share with you.
