Romanclature - Part III
Written by Marr   
Sunday, 06 January 2008 08:20
Marr wraps up his Rome adventures with Jeremy Fish.
whadup ya'll. mo' rome... it's kind of a large one so go take a dump while it loads.

____0123.jpg

IMG_5857.jpg

IMG_5905.jpg

they sell bottles in three packs in romelandia. i'm not much of a pesimist but in this case, the six pack is half empty.

IMG_5919.jpg

welcome to rome, martin. this here's a geeze bag friend of ours from the states that stayed with us for a bit.

IMG_5930.jpg

IMG_5937.jpg

me n' dewd lurked at the colosseum drinking some beer.

IMG_5935.jpg

IMG_5934.jpg

these torture devices were added to the colesseum fairly recently. they make people line up in front of them for hours on end only to be smacked in the balls or vagahole when they pass through. nice one.

IMG_5940.jpg

then martin proceeded to piss on some old ass shit.

IMG_5955.jpg

and not too long later... pissed on some not so old shit. sorry kids, i had to edit this one.

IMG_5968.jpg

hahahahahaha! true story!

IMG_5846.jpg

IMG_5674.jpg

spy...

IMG_5833.jpg

vs. spy.

IMG_5974.jpg

we went to see the monestary of the capucine monks. i forget exactly what their deal is but they basically decorate these rooms below the church with all of the skeletons and bones of past monks. it's pretty dark in there and you're not allowed to shoot photos so most of the ones i took are blurry. sorry bout that.

IMG_5975.jpg

IMG_5977.jpg

IMG_5979.jpg

even the ceiling is decorated.

IMG_5980.jpg

more ceiling.

IMG_5981.jpg

this says 'what you are now we used to be; what we are now you will be'. creepy awesomeness.

IMG_5983.jpg

the church upstairs complete with escaping monk ghost.

IMG_5985.jpg

IMG_5986.jpg

fish making the italian hand sign that means 'damn this thing is sick and it looks like i hand painted it myself'.

IMG_5994.jpg

eat.

IMG_5997.jpg

IMG_6174.jpg

and drink.

IMG_6179.jpg

and eat and drink some more not long later. emiliano's busting out the italian hand sign for 'hey guiseppe, we need more beer!'

IMG_6189.jpg

IMG_6193.jpg

hell yeah dewd. way to scoop up a nice one before you even have a hair on yer balls.

IMG_6203.jpg

then eat some more later. allesondro's rad.

IMG_6216.jpg

simone is also rad and owns the gallery where the show was at.

IMG_6224.jpg

dinner party.

IMG_6213.jpg

beastiality, also way up there on my radness scale. i remember my first threesome.

IMG_6239.jpg

IMG_6240.jpg

then drink some more. bo and matteo are super geezers. you think they skin?

IMG_6242.jpg

aw, hell yeah!

they even like to talk about how much they like to skin. and on a side note, it's pretty cool knowing people read yer crappy blog on the other side of the world hole.

IMG_6260.jpg

homo. i saw quite a few cock fags checking out other dewds at the internet points. i think he's looking at a site called wood. totally gay faggot.

IMG_6266.jpg

i remember the first time i choked the priest.. i certainly wasn't perusing the interweb looking for dewds.

IMG_6269.jpg

IMG_6270.jpg

speaking of boy touchers.. look how creepy holy man is eyeing this little dewd. i'm sure he's thinking 'someday you will be able to fit both my nuts in yer mouth, amen'.

IMG_6272.jpg

roman broom technology is right on par with their internet technology... behind the times.

____0134.jpg

____0129.jpg

____0141.jpg

there was a pre-show collector viewing thing (or something like that). i believe these two fancy pants were doing some shopping.

IMG_6301.jpg

then an after party at paulo and domitillas house complete with a fancy spread, butler/service type o dewdz and plenty o wealthy guests. me and martin walked in holding the roman equivilent to forty ounces and the first thing i did was yell 'va fan culo!' to everyone (it means go fuck yourself). it was quite a gas, lemme tell ya. i had a small 'i would like to hide stuff in this girl' type of crush on the one in the middle of this pik. i talked to her for about a half an hour then wandered off to shoot some photos. the next time i saw her, she pointed at me from a safe distance and said 'yer fuckin crazy'. hmff. so... no, i didn't play hide n seek with her.

IMG_6299.jpg

this here is nicola. i forgot to mention that there's gonna be a book coming out next year with all of the work fish did for the show (and some extras), mirai's portraits of fish, and a grip of photos i took while we were there. nicola is doing the design and layout for it. it'll be for sale on umbrella market and a bunch of other places.

IMG_6304.jpg

i couldn't figure this out. at first i thought it was someones vomit in the bidet but then i realized it was some seashells or rocks. is that fancy for 'our bidet is currenlty a seashell display so don't wash your scumbag ass in it' or 'we know you are a dirtbag so we installed an extra butt nugget filter for you'?

IMG_6306.jpg

kalli (also know as swoon) is fackin awesome and has really really small feet. check out martin after having moved onto cocktails. yeah dewd, go.

IMG_6316.jpg

bottle gut. this photo reminded me of one of fishs shirts.

____0271.jpg

____0273.jpg

____0278.jpg

snappio! bo skinning up hard in what was likely a very non-smoking section.

IMG_6318.jpg

martin putting the zzzzzzz... back into bzzzzzzzdtt!

IMG_6321.jpg

that there is paulo on the right. i don't have many piks of him even though i thought i took quite a few. this here was his party and he is the geeze bag that will be putting out the book (called rome-antic delusions). thanks again for all yer radness, paulo!

IMG_6320.jpg

a bit of a 'pick our asses up' to get us home. i drank the one in the middle with the spoon in it.

IMG_6337.jpg

i don't remember if i brought up the shower problem in our apartment.. so if i have skip this part. this is a photo of our backup shower. the normal one would typically have hot water for about two minutes then ice cold switching back to hot for a minute.. then just freezing water. when this happened, you had to go into the kitchen, climb onto the counter, onto the fridge and hit a button on the water heater to get hot water again... or use the mexican shower in the sink. roman technology yo.

____0281.jpg

me and martin went to see the inside of the colosseum and he spotted this free baby out front (it's a real dewd). italy took it back going through customs or else this blog would be a partial classified ad. yes, in the 'babies for sale' section.

IMG_6342.jpg

on the way in, this dynamic dumper was attached to a saucy broad and standing in line in front of us. unfortunetly, it went the same way we did once we were inside and i wasn't able to look at anything else for the first half hour.

IMG_6347.jpg

IMG_6350.jpg

damn, these dewdz get around.

IMG_6352.jpg

IMG_6353.jpg

dewdz have excavated the ground level (death area) to reveal the paths of doom that the gladiators and animals and other missle anus people used.

____0287.jpg

i've become kind of obsessed with shooting photos of tourists... here's some..

____0288.jpg

here's the rest of that ass wearing the bergay. looks nice from the front too.

____0296.jpg

____0291.jpg

IMG_6367.jpg

tourist douche.

IMG_6362.jpg

super tourist douche with the obligatory american can of coke.

____0038.jpg

i don't really know what's up with this one. a preist talking to some scotsmen about how rad banging little boys can be?

IMG_6374.jpg

next we went to the vatican where, apparently nobody wearing neon pink lederhousen are allowed in.

IMG_6376.jpg

i believe that's god on the right with some of his many yes men in the backround.

IMG_6387.jpg

shit's cool looking inside. those religous people sure do put on quite a show just to get some boy cock.

____0040.jpg

people rub this statues foot for good luck or good health.. or whatever. it sounds pretty ridiculous but if you think about the fact that these people also believe there's a dewd hanging out in the sky that 'made them', is watching their every move, and controlling everything that happens.. foot rubbing's not all that weird.

IMG_6401.jpg

the plaque under this painting said 'i'll take that one. he's got sexy boy tits. lets bring him up this hill and takes turns fucking his virgin ass!'

IMG_6407.jpg

IMG_6434.jpg

went to a strip club that was right off of via tasso (badger street).

IMG_6435.jpg

it was called the office. i've never been in a club that was so dead. i'm not really a fan of strip clubs or strippers so it didn't matter much.

IMG_6438.jpg

IMG_6442.jpg

IMG_6446.jpg

a 'white rocks' t-shirt.. so racial.

IMG_6453.jpg

art show time.. that means free beer.

____0041.jpg

____0043.jpg

papik!

IMG_6456.jpg

this is also made of half of papik.

IMG_6457.jpg

yet another fan of the blog in a far away land. nice one, dewd.

IMG_6465.jpg

IMG_6470.jpg

thanks for everything alice!

____0044.jpg

jeremy and his mom.

IMG_6492.jpg

IMG_6496.jpg

kelli has proper robot technique.

IMG_6499.jpg

IMG_6504.jpg

we smoke bombed.. tired and drunk, waiting patiently for a taxi attack.

IMG_6522.jpg

done.

thanks to all the geezers in rome, here in sf and all you reader people all over that really help tie my blog together. don't be a cunt stick (deep fried style).. come back soon. {moscomment}

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.


Gator Skater +video

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?


Ferris Plock Online Show Now Online as of April 25th

5 new wonderful large-scale paintings on wood panel are available. visit: www.ffdg.net


ClipODay II: Needles & Pens 11 Years!!

Congrats on our buddies at Needles and Pens on being open and rad for 11 years now. Mission Local did this little short video featuring Breezy giving a little heads up on what Needles and Pens is all about.


BANDES DE PUB / STRIP BOX

In a filmmaker's thinking, we wish more videos were done in this style. Too much editing and music with a lacking in actual content. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.


AJ Fosik in Tokyo at The Hellion Gallery

Matt Wagner recently emailed over some photos from The Hellion Gallery in Tokyo, who recently put together a show with AJ Fosik (Portland) called Beast From a Foreign Land. The gallery gave twelve of Fosik's sculptures to twelve Japanese artists (including Hiro Kurata who is currently showing in our group show Salt the Skies) to paint, burn, or build upon.


Ferris Plock - Online Show, April 25th

FFDG is pleased to announce an exclusive online show with San Francisco based Ferris Plock opening on Friday, April 25th (12pm Pacific Time) featuring 5 new medium sized acrylic paintings on wood.


GOLD BLOOD, MAGIC WEIRDOS

Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne played host to a huge group exhibition a couple of weeks back, with "Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos" Curated by Melbourne artist Sean Morris. Gold Blood brought together 25 talented painters, illustrators and comic artists from Australia, the US, Singapore, England, France and Spain - and marked the end of the Magic Weirdos trilogy, following shows in Perth in 2012 and London in 2013.


Jeremy Fish at LA's Mark Moore Gallery

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.


John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle


Tyler Bewley ~ Recent Works

Some great work from San Francisco based Tyler Bewley.


Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery

While walking our way across San Francisco on Saturday we swung through the opening receptions for Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in the Mission.

Stop in Saturday (1-6pm) to view the group show "Salt the Skies" now running through April 19th. 2277 Mission St. at 19th.


The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

SF Giants' World Series Trophy & DLX
Wednesday, 04 March 2015 17:21

I'm not sure how many people are lucky enough to have The San Francisco Giants 3 World Series trophies put on display at their work for the company's employees to enjoy during their lunch break, but that's what happened the other day at Deluxe. So great.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.

Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON
