This is a few years old, but worth digging up. Beautiful machinery. Great, great, great.

Portland Art

I never met this guy, he stopped working at The Bookman just before I began. However, I feel that I gained certain camaraderie with him due to the large amount that was spoken of in his wake. For all you Portlandians, it looks worth checking out:

Here’s the Deets. (Since I can’t seem to get the hang of that indented quotation stuff)

Street Views

The whole world, captured once.

Ludicrous as it seems, that’s the goal of Google Street View.  And in it’s artless way, it somewhat does capture the human experience.  Don’t believe me? Look at some of these guys. The accompanying article has a bunch of good ideas, but it also has an excessive amount of bullshit.  Take it for what it is, and enjoy it.

The Home Bar

Posted in A Put It Up Summer, America, art, G&T's, LOTW on June 18, 2009 by John

A year older a few years wiser, the new book is overhauled, proofread and ready for print.   The Home Bar is here.  The version some of you might know is gone.  There were a lot of awful recipes in there. There are only one or two of them now.  It also got a face-lift and a couple pages of non recipe content.   Also, as a Put It Up exclusive, I’ve provided this cover page and a recipe not included in the book! I’m a regular Billy Mays over here. Look for it below the jump!

Cheers, dude!

For those of you who weren’t fortunate enough to be in the Southern California area this past Spring, here is a chance to take a peek at the latest masterpiece from one of the fastest growing voices in film. Emett Casey’s Peter & the Mischievous Hanky blew audiences away during it’s premiere screening at the Marion Knott Studios so much that it was cordially asked to re-screen the very next month!

Take a gander for yourself – and if that doesn’t satisfy your gutteral and filmic urges then feel free to explore our newly expanded website. Stay tuned for more info on a very special screening of Alicia Peterson’s much delayed but all-the-more anticipated Golden Afternoons!

What theater should I expect to see this melodramatic spectacle, you ask? Oh no, put on your boots and pack up your picnic supplies because we’re heading out to the beautiful Tujunga Canyon. Come for the micr0-commercial & home brewed beer in a hand-built kegerator by Mr. Clark Baker and stay for the amazing spectacle of New American Cinema.
