**NEW SONG ALERT**

This month’s addition to the EXHIBIT series is here! This is the third installment of the How I Spent My Summer Vacation edition of my museum-centric song series.

August’s song is called right side wrong side inside outside" and was inspired by some of Maria Lassnig’s strange self-portraits, many of which are currently on view at MoMA PS1 in Queens. 

Listen to “right side wrong side inside outside” on bandcamp.

Listen to the entire series HERE

This is the eleventh installment of EXHIBIT, a museum-based serial song project. Prior to the creation of each song in the series, I spend time in the museum of my choosing. Within one week’s time, I compose and record a song inspired by the visit.

Hair Flips

Normally my response to something like this would be… a hair flip… but that seems like overkill.

How about a whole bunch of shark teeth for #fossilfriday? 
Sharks produce hundreds or even thousands of teeth in their lifetime. Fossilized shark teeth are among the most common vertebrate fossils. It has been estimated that many sharks produce between 10,000 and 15,000 teeth in their lifetime. In this Museum display in the Hall of Vertebrate Origins, roughly 12,000 fossil bull-shark teeth are shown, dating to Miocene, collected in North Carolina.

A man in a stars-and-stripes t-shirt picks up burning tear gas canister, hurls it back at the militarized riot cops who just shot it at him, and all the while he never puts down his bag of chips.
This photograph captures the purest essence of America I’ve ever seen.
I hope everyone under siege in St. Louis finds safety tonight.
Fuck the police.
