Hot in The City
i tell you, it is.
i cut some guy off in traffic while i was lost, looking for the St. Vinny's on Center.
There may not be a St Vinny's on center.
He was pretty nice about it though.
I think he was trying to help and gave me the wrong directions but such is life.
Its burning up though. I saw the brewers give up a million runs from a really good seat. courtesy of Greg Hemple and Lauren Landa.
i've been hanging with the cats. havin a good old time. peanut always wants something and Annie has been sleeping upside down.
I walked around in the mall by myself today. it was kind of a bummer but whatever.
i just wanted a drinking fountain. theres no free drinks at Mayfair.
Now that thats out of the way...
Faythe Levine and Sam Macon are working on a new film about sign painters. Sign painting as a craft isnt something a lot of us know much about because not a lot of people do it anymore. In day to day life you tend to forget that, things you may take for granted, (like signs) evolved form a complicated trade that has an entire subculture behind it.
Its really interesting to think that at a point and time every street sign in a city would have to be hand painted.
Sign painting as a trade/art form inspires a lot of interesting questions and answers connected to why things are (and arent).
So keep an eye on this project...
