Subliminal Projects keeps coming up with better and better stuff. Continuing in its tradition to showcase original and innovative work, Shephard Fairey's own Subliminal Projects Gallery will be hosting "Idealist Propaganda" a retrospective of iconic photographer Glen E. Friedman. As mentioned in a past post, Friedman's work has been tied with many of the most rebellious and outwardly spoken music figures and pop icons of yesteryear. He has worked with Fugazi, Black Flag, Public Enemy and a countless number of other legendary names, before they were legends. His keen eye and indomitable affinity for promoting the idea that we should never lose our integrity has helped to assure his place as one of the best photographers of his time.
Opening night is this Saturday from 8 to 11 PM, Friedman will be in attendance.
I think I'll be calling out at work to go, but if you can't make it, no problem, the show will continue at Subliminal Projects through January 9th.

"If something has like, needles in it, that's like what they eat in the carribean."
An awesome short by the man responsible for Anchorman and the Bucket of Truth.
Random sidenote: pretty recently I was given the nickname "Ghost Panther" by some friends. The name came up while we were trying to think of absurd, yet apt, animal names that had a whimsical kick to them (insert: Night Owl and Dragonheart). Upon seeing this video and realizing that the name had already been given to Adam McKay, a part of me was stunned. ...but then I thought, "How weird is it to think that someone else has ever had the phrase 'Ghost Panther' cross their mind?"
