Post Pulse

Well the coverage of Pulse New York didn't quite live up to the promise, did it? Bambino went around and photographed his favorites at the fair, and he'll do a post on that later, but right now, both of us are sick in bed (poor B, with a high fever). Lots of other folks at the fair were coming down with something yesterday as well (too much partying or too much in and out of the cold, we're not sure).

The fair was a total delight, though, I must say. Sales were excellent, the response to the booth was more than we had hoped for, and overall we had a wonderful time seeing our friends and meeting some fun new folks.

Speaking of others who are under the weather though,
Barry Hoggard was kind enough to highlight Ivin Ballen's work on his blog even though he must have caught the same bug we did (feel better Barry).

Thanks to everyone who stopped in to say hello. It was great putting some faces together with blog names. A big special shout out to the lovely ladies at
PPOW (Wendy and Penny), who we can't believe we only just got to know at the fair and positively adore already. Oh, and to Dennis...there's plenty more where that came from....consider a whole installation of them for your project space! Finally, to the Hooligans (you know who you are), B sends his love and hopes we get to see you before October...seriously consider the project we discussed.

Now I'm off to get Bambino some Theraflu.

Wow.. sorry all you guys are sick!

But what do you expect when you party like rockstars with those guys over at DCKT! Dr. Quiz and I learned that lesson in MIAMI.. yikes!

Party with DCKT? Are you kidding? We only wish.

Between their real rock star friends and glamourista groupies, I'd most likely be mistaken for the butler in that crowd.

Besides, I thought you had to pass some sort of perversity proficiency test to hang out with Ken, no? I'll ask SchroeRo.

I should note though, I was totally charmed when DC introduce me to Exene and she complimented my shoes (I'm sure I blushed like a schoolboy).

That work is already very different from the previous Ballen work I saw (below).

Kinda like a diseased Mondrian.

There's hope since he's so young, but to just flatter him over and over won't do him any good.

It's at the edge but not quite enough for me. I can see a path where he can go next but that's to him to figure out what he wants.

Ivin's getting plenty of constructive criticism, and taking it in like a pro, Cedric...not to worry.

Thanks for your feedback though.

My clue is that re-lecturing older art is not necessary.

Ed, I know why you guys are sick, being so close to that ridiculously annoying constant woooooo-ing guitar exhibit.
Like, wtf?
Fantastic show.

Ivin was top 3 in my honest opinion besides the Seoul and Ojai, California galleries.

I'll be posting my reviews probably this weekend after a trip to FLA.

Thanks so much again for the chocolates and gift bag.

Great stuff.

Pulse was a great fair this year (and yes, thanx for the yummy choc. you guys, and cool gift bag). Did anyone take in the totally bizarro Armory vitrine in the vestibule? 69th regiment memorabilia?? from WWI to Apamatox to... Baghdad? I was almost happy I had to wait in line for tickets. There's a tin mess kit w. engravings of nude ladies, titties, and bad french... get well sooon!

That's what you get when you hang out in the second stall from the left, Edward. If you need a packet for your 8 oz. of water, I've got plenty to spare.

Oh, I've met your little Bambino Ed. You've passed my perversity test with FLYING colors!!!

Feel Better!

One word comes to mind;

Like Miami, NY is now "diluted" with artfairs.

Good luck artists.

Quantity is not quality.

Unless you're talking about money, in which case quantity is the only quality that matters.

If Bambino is feverish, may I suggest that frozen margaritas work better than Theraflu? Seriously. Tequila and vitamin C together have surprising medicinal qualities (plus, they go well with sinus-clearing salsa on corn chips.)

Hope you all feel better soon.

Thank you everyone for your wishes, but Ed did a great job and I am almost getting back to normal.

My picks are coming soon.....
