Impolitic: Propaganda for Non-Politicians – Next Super Precious art show

Here’s some information about the next Super Precious Art Gallery group art show. Super Precious is one of the projects I started earlier in the year, and the shows have been getting better and better. If you like art, it’d be awesome if you’d sign up on the mailing list.

Into the highly charged political arena of this election season, Super Precious Art Gallery wades with an irreverent look at Propaganda for Non-Politicians. The show features over 20 pieces from 18 local and national artists advocating for everything from boats to coffee to Q*bert. Join us on Sunday, November 4th at Bloc 11 Cafe in Union Square, Somerville for an opening reception of the show with artists on hand and prints available.

The show will hang at Bloc 11 from 10/31-11/13. More information available at http://superprecio.us/ Peep the awesome poster by Josh LaFayette below.

Please RSVP and invite your friends to the opening here.

Immediate economic impact of Hurricane Sandy – Market Basket edition

I’ve got a long history of fawning over Market Basket, the grocery store around the corner from my house. It’s cheap, constantly crowded, and features a parking lot way too small for the number of people who want to go. There is always a police detail on site, and for the week around holidays, there are TWO police details on site. The floors are constantly sawdusted from wet breakage. The chaos in the aisles and check out area on the day before Thanksgiving and the days before Christmas is my spirit animal.

Market Basket is the perfect place to check out maniacal storm preparation, but today the road leading into the parking lot was shut for a street fair. The parking lot was more than half empty, and I’ve never seen the store so calm or quiet. Market Basket probably would done tremendous sales today, instead they probably won’t even make their average.

Cindy Brady’s Fluff art

Susan Olsen, who you may know as Cindy Brady, from The Brady Bunch, also makes Fluff art. Her work is currently showing at Bloc 11 Cafe in Union Square, Somerville. Union Square is the home of this weekend’s Fluff Fest. I know all of this because that’s me on the Cooking Contest Judge page right under the astronaut and State Representative. No offense, Mr. Astronaut and Ms. State Representative.

Flood on Lake St, Somerville

I live on Lake St and every couple years you find out why. We were away this weekend when our entire neighborhood flooded, stranding cars and trains. Here’s an awesome video by Paper Fortress Films showing the situation Saturday afternoon.

A couple years ago, I made this much less awesome video to show a flood.

I’m helping to put on a fun event this weekend in Union Square. Going Nutty! features nuts from Superior Nut being used by chefs from all over Boston (Flour Bakery, Kickass Cupcakes, Channel Cafe, Rocca, OM Restaurant, Bloc 11, and how2heroes) in some of their favorite dishes.

If you want to get nuts this weekend, come to Bloc 11 and Grand from 2-4 PM on Sunday the 4th. All proceeds benefit the newly founded Juniper Fund, which was formed to honor John S. Hall, bass player for local band Addison Groove Project, who passed away in 2004. To RSVP or for more info, check out the Facebook Page.
