Miron Report

Self promo!!!!! I'll try to call my self out every time I do this, because this is not why I started Defgrip, but sometimes I am going to post on stuff Im involved with.

New Miron Report. Check it out. It's pretty tame this time, but it's always fun to hear what the Beast has to say.

Look out for the second version of Defgrip this week. I am finished, just working out the kinks. The new version will have so much more content and a bit more flair. We are all psyched to get it up.

CUT & PASTE

People are doing cool things. A design competition with a "battling" theme. If you can make it, check it out.

The names of the contestants are links to their work.

Vult X Goods

More posts on Rich's shit.... Vult Premier at Goods tomorrow night.

Lotek Video

Does this count as self promo if I have nothing to do with Lotek? If it does sorry, but this is definitely worth a post and since we haven't posted on the site for the longest time since the site has been up I figure I should get some shit up quick. I have an excuse, I've been out of town, but where is everyone else? Just playin, so here we go.... Trailer on the lotek site. If you check this before Rich gets his internet up you will see this before anyone else because he didn't get time to say anything in his news and then his internet went down, so the video is just chillin with no love. Click on the Mixtape box and you will find some good stuff.... Yah that last clip is Eddy and he doesn't have pegs....

Peekaboo Monster

Peekaboo Monster went to my art school, he graduated a year before I started, so i never got to talk to him all that much. I see him around town here and there and he has some art shows that pop up now and then. He and this girl that I did go to school with, Angle 179, are going to be up in Vancouver on the 11th doing a live installation at the Sneaker Pimps show.

If you don't know what Sneaker Pimps is, it's a traveling sneaker show with like 700 limited edition, and customized sneakers. The show is on November 11th at the Silk Haus - 135 Keefer Street Vancouver at 8pm.

I would love to check it out, but there is an opening for the space that I work in on the same night. If you are in Vancouver or have the ability to get there, definitely check this show out.

But more importantly check out Peekaboo Monsters stuff.

Here are the links:

Directors Label

You may have seen these around maybe not. they're basically DVD's with showcased work from selected directors that do amazing stuff. I've seen a few of these but not from the directors that are on the website now. It seems like they came out with four new ones since the last time I checked the site. Anyway if you want to see some amazing work its on these dvd's. I think you can get them at places like Urban Outfitters but if your not into that, google around for them here's the site.Directors Label

The War Within

The website is very well done, but more importantly this movie looks pretty crazy. Watch the trailer.

Nano Advertising

Check out this ad campaign from apple. I would never keep one, but I'm feeling the concept. Good way to interact with the consumer. I know they had little iPod mini’s in magazines a while back, but everyone throws shit away that comes in magazines. This format lends it self better to the concept then the Mini campaign did. Although I have no idea how you are supposed to get the ones off the top...

Check it here.

COBRASNAKE 2

Dude, the Mark the Cobrasnake! I know that guy. I met him a few times at spots in LA; he was a friend of a friend and always shooting polaroids. He was this raggedy dude with an afro, and then one night we saw him all trimmed up and clean cut. Turns out he went on some reality makeover show. Dude is funny.

Alife on Freshness

Haven't had a chance to get into this, but there is a great feature on Alife on Freshness. But believe me this is where I am going to spend my lunch. I'm psyched.

Check it here. Dont pass it up.

Dave Singer

My boy Dave Singer from back home has a site where he showcases some of his artwork (mostly ink on paper). The site is real simple, but it's good enough. I consider him to be one of my favorite artist's and this site is only a fraction of what he's got. Obviously, canvases and colors need to be seen in person, but this is a good sample. He once did a whole peice on a napkin (possibly from a pizza place) that he unfolded lengthwise.

Cobrasnake

So for the past six months I have been hearing the name "The Cobrasnake." I checked him out, wasn't really feeling, it, heard about him again, checked him out again, wasn't really feeling it again, and I probably did that about four or five times, but again tonight my attention was brought to The Cobrasnake, so I said fuck it and tried to figure some info out about the guy.
I guess he lives in L.A. is a community college dropout, goes to parties and takes pictures. This guy must never sleep because tonight (before Halloween parties would have started) he had four galleries with 40 photos or more each of Halloween parties. I know everyone went out over the weekend, but fuck, four, already. The Cobrasnake is on it. Even though his photos are just typical party flicks, the quality is there.

You can spend hours going through his photos here - thecobrasnake.com
