An assortment of happy and bizarre imagery from new-to-me tumblr Barrio Bajero.
Initially when Indo Project’s window display went up as part of the Make-Believe Project in Wicker Park, I wrote a call for folks to vote. Interestingly enough since then INDO’s gotten quite the feedback just from passersby and local business owners which you can read about here. I’m super impressed at how much they’ve managed to engage the community. I just really hope they bring in the the win because it’s so inspiring to see your friends finally be rewarded for busting their asses. Luckily there’s a few days left to vote, if you have two minutes to spare, please hop over and click the button.
It was a particular shock yesterday to hear reports of Minneapolis MC Eyedea’s death of unknown causes at only 28 years old; it’s a devastating blow to the MN Hip-Hop scene and the genre as a whole. Aside from attending a couple of his shows over the years, I’ll remember Eyedea as the starry-eyed talent of my high school’s graduating class. Instead of doing school work he used to just sit and read a Thesaurus in class, but he was already so clearly devoted to music that the teachers didn’t make too much of a hassle over it. He was even voted “Most Likely to be a Superstar” which just seems ironic now.
Rest in peace buddy.

Enter WEEKEND! Starting right….now.
Matej Kren’s book installations. I want to make one of these into a book-treehouse-gazebo-thing on a beach somewhere. I’d put a hammock inside, drink cocktails, and read all day long. Want to come?
