The Communist Party



I love this Threadless shirt, called “The Communist Party“, created by Tom Burns. Though I’m a sucker for puns. It reminds me of the Bad Religion song “Atomic Garden” which has the following verse:


And I’m glad I’m not Gorbachev

’cause I’d wiggle all night

Like jelly in a pot

At leats he’s got a garden with a fertile plot

And a party that will never stop


Crazy car in the Haight

While walking through the neighborhood today, I noticed this crazy car at the corner of Page and Masonic. It looks like something I’d see at either Burning Man or Maker Faire.

Anyone know more about it?

Ecstasy in the Park

Ecstacy in the Park

Went out shooting some photos today, for the first time in what feels like ages. This is one of my favorite photos that I’ve taken in a long time. The sculpture is Ecstasy by Dan Das Mann and Karen Cusolito and was installed at Patricia’s Green in Hayes Valley last week. It’s on display until June 18, 2010.

More information is available on the Black Rock Arts Foundation blog.

First displayed at the Burning Man festival in Nevada in 2008, Ecstasy is one of the eight monumental metal figures of the artists’ masterpiece, Crude Awakening. In Crude Awakening, these eight figures surrounded a 99-foot tall wooden oil derrick in gestures of prostration, worship and exaltation. Alone, Ecstasy embarks on a hopeful journey. Instead of throwing her head back in reverie to the oil derrick, she gazes wistfully into the open sky as she steps forward into an optimistic future, free of dependency on fossil fuel.
