influenced by punk - me too - let's read about it

Babylon's Burning: From Punk to Grungeby Clinton Heylin

at the mohawk last night - i was

wow. last night had the privilege of hanging with some peeps at the mohawk, (which through the sound of people talking there it is coming into its own and is developing a really nice scene and regulars, cheers to those guys) there was a packed list full of nice bands. But i must admit, my favorites emerge as white denim. hot.hot.

introduced to me by their friends at a parlor show in october, they have been practicing and it shows. These guys,(steve, josh, james) are really talented and quietly emerging into a scene of their own. Watch out for them in SXSW, if you get a chance to see them expect some really well crafted original sound, with high energy. rumor has it there you might see them at the mohawk in that case, i hope to see you all there. support local good music like these guys.

need art for a bikeway - call us

a project we are working on made the news the other day, albeit missing some important facts like who is designing it, although it states wilbur smith associates,, it rather should read: leah davis, robert gay, jack sanders (nextproject design collective)...

at any rate the proposal is linked up through my site located here

Artwork will line the Lance Armstrong Bikeway
News 8 Austin by Reagan Hackleman

The bikeway named after seven-time Tour de France champion and Austin local Lance Armstrong is still more than a year away from being complete.

But the city is almost done planning the artwork that will adorn the six-mile route.

The Lance Armstrong Bikeway (LAB) has been in the planning stages since 2000, but the idea for artwork has only been part of the plan for about two years.

"Certainly, here in Austin this is a first of its kind," Arts in Public Places Administrator Megan Crigger said.

South Carolina-based Wilbur Smith Associates was hired by the city to design the bikeway.

The route will stretch from MoPac and Lake Austin Boulevard through downtown along Fifth Street to Highway 183 in East Austin. (A .pdf map is available here.)

Along the way there will be three "tunnels" - square Slinky-like coils that are 12 feet high, 32 feet long and 6 feet across.

"They're sort of sculptural points that give access to pedestrians and bikers to the bikeway," Crigger said.

The bikeway will consist of a combination of off-street concrete trails, on-street striped bike lanes and on-street signed bike routes.

Once cyclists are pedaling down the bikeway, they won't be getting lost. There will be 10 large yellow paintings on the roads and concrete bike trails marking where they are and how far they've gone. If cyclists miss those, they probably won't miss the eight yellow mile markers.

One of the three coil-shaped 'tunnels'

Finally, if cyclists need to stop and take a break, they'll be able to use the six benches that double as bike racks.

"I think it's a very good way to bring art and cycling together.
It's nice to have artwork around our city," cyclist Nadia Kean said.

The artwork is expected to be approved by the Art in Public Places Commission on Thursday. It will receive final approval from the Austin City Council. Constrction on the Lance Armstrong Bikeway is scheduled to get started in the spring and be completed in 2008

yeah i know, well i did it anyway - check it

the web version 2.0 has been the big deal circulating many of the papers and peeps alike, the proliferation of the democratic space, the place we can enjoy and watch ourselves poop on each other. and of course the place where we say thanks for the add.

so if you haven't maybe you shouldn't, just wait for 3.0
