POPARCHIVES DIARIES BY DUSTIN PITTMAN - CLAYTON PATTERSON - THE GOD OF THE LES

FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHIC DIARIES OF PHOTOGRAPHER    Dustin Pittman

CLAYTON PATTERSON "THE $16 BURGER SHOW" WITH ELSA RENSAA & THE Art Collective BAND - DAMEHT

Longtime Lower East Side archivist, artist, photographer, Clayton Patterson has announced that he is leaving New York for a small village in the Austrian alps.“The $16 Burger show,” a pop-up exhibit featuring Patterson’s work, along with his life partner Elsa Rensaa’s original artwork, was held in a gallery space formerly known as "PopBurger" in the Meatpacking District.  It has been christened “Galerie ABP,” short for Au Bon Punk. Patterson, calls the neighborhood “the Dead Meat District.” Dameht, a band which is part of an art collective in NYC, helped stage the exhibit, along with Kate Litvinov.

I believe in Clayton and everything that he represents. I, to, have witnessed the distruction of the LES and other Historic Manhattan Neighborhoods only to be priced out with Corporate Drug Stores, Banks, Expensive Coffee Shops, Cellphone Popup Stores and other Mall Related storefront trash.  Mars Bar=GONE   CBGB'S=GONE   Max Fish=GONE   Brownies=GONE. 

The show was a celebration of young and old mingling together creating equal good vibes and loving spirits. Clayton Patterson is the GOD OF THE LES.

MUTATE AW13 / DIEGO ZÚÑIGA

[ M U T A T E . AW13 ] 
www.diegozuniga.com

Twitback

The homonymous firm of the Mexican designer returns this Fall/Winter 2013 with MUTATE. The starting point is the beetle, an insect that throughout history has been an inspiration for industrial design, architecture and the military world. With eight all-black looks, MUTATE is characterized by oversize pieces, tailored quality and sporty touches. It surprises us with dynamic and original cuts, mesh details, and for the first time in the brand’s history there is a couple of functional accessories (cap and backpack) to create an outfit that reflects the concept perfectly. The collection? Wide-cut blazers with relaxed lapels, sweaters with wide sleeves, pants with big cargo-like pockets, and short wide pants. The textures reflect inspiration and are mixed with the designer’s characteristic black-over-black detail. The fortress, intellect, routine, and strength of the contemporary man is what emerges from this proposal from Zúñiga.

HAPPY 70TH BIRTHDAY ROBERT CRUMB - CRUMB TRAILER


2012-08-29-robert_crumb

In honor of R. Crumb's 70th birthday I have posted the trailer of 1994 documentry about Crumb directed by Terry Zwigoff. This documentry is a very intimate, irreverent, and often disturbing portrait of Crumb and his work as well as the an amazing cast of characters of friends, family and fans around him.

Screen shot 2013-08-30 at 3.17.26 PM

Enjoy.

LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD (DANCE OF REALITY) TRAILER - DIRECTED BY ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY

Realidad-thumb-630xauto-38686

Was happy to find the trailer for Jodorowsky's new film, LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD (DANCE OF REALITY), which debuted at Cannes last May. My dear friend in Mexico City Alisarine Ducolomb did the production design on the film, which she has been telling me about for sometime. I am look forward to seeing LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD, which is described as "a magic-realist memoir" of Jodorowsky's youth.

 

Here is an interview with Jodorowsky from Xan Brooks at The Guardian.

LOLLAPALOOZA 2013 - LAURA DUNCAN REPORT

My dear friend, LA stylist Laura Duncan who works with Dita and styles Perry Farrell, spent the weekend at Lollapalooza 2013 in Chicago. I asked Laura to give us a report and here are some words and picutures from her weekend.

"How do you bring 300,000 people together to one park to dance, sing and rejoice to their hearts content?  Leave it to Master mind Perry Farrell to work his magic to gather some of the best musical acts in the world to play over the course of 3 days and 8 stages in center of Chicago's Grant park. Lollapalooza 2013 was not to be missed!

Our little crew of fashion mischief makers made the pilgrimage in high style from Los Angeles to Chicago as guests of Perry and Etty Farrell to attend this mind blowing festivity.  Miss Dita Von Teese (needs no explanation), Jody O'Keefe (jewelry Designer), Danielle Motor (from the band Swagger) Jessicka Adams (singer of Scarling), Tosh Sherman (fashion Designer), and Eric Szmanda (CSI star).

The mission at hand, to have the most magical experience of our lives!  We danced, laughed and got all together down right silly. Bands like New Order, NIN, Queens of the Stone Age, and of course The Cure rocked our little hearts into a pleasure frenzy.
