Maybe it will show up at your place, if you make an order…
Oh Lord, I want curry from a Mercedes Benz
My friends all have p’kora, I must make amends

And, Don’t Miss These Highlights!
And here’s how the exhibit ends in Gallery 3, all modern, with the sweetest office desk imaginable:
I’ll dig through the catalog and post more stuff later.
And oh, if you haven’t seen it, here’s the new logo for the Asian – it’s a turned A, fundamentally:
But it’s 3D, as you can see:
All right, see you there!

It’s one of these, right?
All the deets:
“A Brand New Brand
We’ve been eager to share something exciting with you, and now it’s time:
Your Asian Art Museum sports a new vision, a new brand promise, and a new logo – unveiled this week. We’re reinventing ourselves to engage a broader audience.
Our Vision is to spark connections across cultures and through time, and our brand promises to: Awaken the Past, Inspire the Next. We’ll use art to unlock the past and bring it to life, and act as a catalyst for new art, new creativity, and new thinking. We’ll feature more contemporary art, often drawing connections to historic art in our collection. We invite you to experience the beauty and depth of Asian art and cultures, and to be inspired.
Our new logo reflects our Vision. It says we have a new perspective. It’s bold and confident. And, it invites all to engage. (Did you know an upside-down A is a mathematic symbol for “for all”?)
Come see how we’re starting to live our new brand. On view now is Poetry in Clay: Korean Buncheong Ceramics from Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art (through Jan 8, 2012). In the next two months, check out Maharaja: The Splendor of India’s Royal Courts (opens Oct 21) and Deities, Demons, and Dudes with ‘Staches: Indian Avatars by Sanjay Patel (opens Nov 11)”
(Remember when he proudly pointed out his flat-panel TV (“BAM!”) and “great mirror?” And the zebra pelt on the kitchen floor?*)
But now, there’s sadness in his life owing to his slightly older-model Ferrari getting cracked up while in the custody of his Ferrari dealership. Of course, the dealership has offered to fix it up and/or offered to let him by a newer, unused Ferrari at a higher price, but that’s not good enough for G.

See that “why does this crap always happen to me?”
Does this make “G” the “definition of a douchelord?”

Chin up, G!
*Apparently, the people behind the Secret Millionaire show wanted to show a big delta between the lifestyle of his real-life SoMA pad vs. the Tenderloin hovel that he shacked-up in during the filming of the show. Well, some people got carried away with the made-for-TV furnishings. So that’s where the zebra pelt and chandelier came in. Ironically, you might prefer to live in that hovel on Larkin Street – it’s not that bad, right across the street from Homeland Security. Typical Americans watching had no idea that the rent on that supposedly unlivable apartment in the Tenderloin was more than their flyover country mortgage payments…
And, from the looks of things, having white tires was old hat back in the day.

Seems this au currant ride owned by an area art student would fit right in with the style of a century ago:
What will bikes look like in 2110?
The Krishnas came out in force…
…from all over:
And everyone was invited to the “FREE FEAST,” of sorts:
This was the race course:
And here are all the deets:
See you next year!
First up is this effort from four decades ago. It’s from the basement of the Citadel, which is ‘neath the place where all the tourists go these days. Anyway, we know for sure these scribblings were put up around 1969-1971, the time when Native Americans famously took over Alcatraz.
“Custer was White,” dice, and “Indian Land.” See?
