"Being in an Ed Piskor comic is cool enough to freeze hot water." – Fab Five Freddy

"This is the comic of all time." – Biz Markie

"This is the comic I’ve been waiting 40 years to read." – Harry Allen (Public Enemy Media Assassin)

"If ever a chapter of modern American history were ripe for the Classics Illustrated comic book treatment, it is hip-hop’s first decade. Ed Piskor, a talented writer and artist who has long savored the connections between comic books and hip-hop, has now written that chapter in the seductive and entertaining form of Hip Hop Family Tree. He weaves dozens and dozens of individual stories into an unprecedented book-length narrative encapsulating the out-sized drive, creativity, humor and violence that defined hip-hop culture from its gestation in New York’s outer boroughs in the early Seventies to its thrilling first steps onto the world stage via records and tv in the early Eighties. … It’s a great great story and Piskor tells it immaculately well.” – Bill Adler, co-author, Def Jam: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label

"They say the story of Jesus is the greatest ever told, but JC didn’t steal a DJ mixer during the New York Blackout of ‘77 or bomb a subway car with Fab 5 Freddy. With his ‘Hip Hop Family Tree,’ comics artist Ed Piskor delves into the history of hip-hop and gets straight-up biblical, penning a ‘who-begat-whom’ with a b-boy twist." – Jonathan Zwickel, MTV.com

Renoir
Directed by Gilles Bourdos
2012

Before “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” became a trope for socially awkward white dudes in cinema, there was once the artist’s muse. One such muse was Catherine Hessling (born Andrée Heuschling), subject of the later works of renowned French painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, as well as actress and future wifey of his son, and filmmaker, Jean Renoir.

Less a conventional biopic and more like Art History 101 as told by Terrence Mallick, Gilles Bourdos directs a slow and atmospheric portrait of two different artists: one on the waning end of an already prolific career, and the other who has still yet to discover his life’s passion. The constant: both father and son find their muse in Andrée, a model and aspiring actress sent over to the Renoir household by fellow Impressionist Henri Matisse.

What is particularly good though is the camerawork and cinematography of Mark Lee Ping Bin, who has previously worked with Wong Kar-Wai and Christopher Doyle on In The Mood For Love, as well as the equally atmospheric film adaptation of the Haruki Murakami novel, Norwegian Wood. There are great shots throughout in deep focus and natural lighting, and of trees blowing on the French Riviera, which are very evocative of Renoir’s paintings themselves. And like Renoir, Mark Lee is so good at capturing this beauty in a way only few can.

nbaoffseason:

It’s been a crazy week to be living in the Boston area and due to the recent events, the Double Scribble In The Paint art show has been rescheduled to this Friday, April 26th.

I was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of it this weekend, as well as meeting up with the organizers: Nick of Double Scribble, Ananth and Crystal, and the folks at Voltage Coffee.

Show your love for art and basketball, as well as the city of Boston, and reserve your tickets here: http://www.inthepaintbos.eventbrite.com/

From the event page:

Everything that was planned for last Friday will happen again.

Door donation and raffle proceeds to Shooting Touch, and both Grillos and Downeast Cider will be there with pickles and hard cider galore.

So let’s experience great art (including Aaron Dana’s fantastic mural), eat/drink, and come together In the Paint.

*Note: tickets have sold out but register anyways to get on the list. If not, the artwork will still be up until May 18th. 

**Sidenote: If you want to support another fine Cambridge establishment, all hoops fans are invited to “NBA Nerd Night” every Wednesdays at Parlor Sports in Inman Square for all things basketball nerdery.

(more info: Double Scribble, In The Paint, Voltage Coffee)

If you are looking for a neat place sort of hidden away in the Boston area there is the Papercut Zine Library located inside Lorem Ipsum Booksin Inman Square. You are right, a zine library might sound like the most twee thing in the universe (you even get a laminated library card!), but there are some good comix and art zines there, as well as this Rihanna fanzine.
