Vote for Nuci’s Space daily for this grant from Pepsi. Can never say enough good things about Nuci’s. Ever. And voting is just a click.

This is a super cool show featuring works by Carol John and Carl Martin, two amazing artists in Athens who’ve contributed much to the current, hip style of some of Athens’ most appealing places — including Big City Cafe, the Leathers Building and Cine — through their company DOC Unlimited. Cool, industrial-elements mixed with historically preserved details is a style that’s shaped the architectural aesthetic in Athens considerably. As artists, they’re equally exceptional. Trace is located in the Chase Park Warehouses, next to ATHICA and Canopy, 160 Tracy St., in Athens.

Farewell paste-up department, which has sat empty and dark for most of the years I’ve been here. It’s a relic of another time, when what appeared in print came not from a computer screen, but from a printed out column of text, hot-waxed to a page before it was photographed and sent to the printers. It seems a sad demolition anyway.

And it seems ironic, too, considering the glitch in the new system that lays out the paper keeps kicking back to older comic strips as the pages get sent to the printer. Apparently it’s been a huge source of frustration for the desk, and around the newsroom, it’s been a frustration for the number of phone calls from readers who are piping mad and saying how horrible the paper is because of the repeated comics. I get it, but still. I don’t think our readers’ level of frustration with repeated comics comes anywhere close to the frustration level of the desk peeps trying to fix the problem.

At any rate, I doubt this was much of a problem when the paper was laid out by the paste-up department. Computers aren’t always better than people.

Also, here’s my story that ran on Wednesday last about Peter.

Taste of the South magazine recognizes Athens and The National as the region’s tastemakers.
“Peter Dale, the handsome chef and partner at The National, runs this restaurant like one of the family-owned Spanish neighborhood standards that inspired it. It maintains its Southerness, with a comfortable and friendly atmosphere, and the menu boasts patatas bravas (crispy potatoes) with spicy tomato aïoli.”

CNN iReport has posted their Top Five Squirrel-y iReports, and while all are ridiculously adorable, this one is heart-bustingly cute.

Thanks for posting, Lila! :)

This just in!
After over a decade of being impossible to find (and when found they were fetching collector’s prices) Chunklet Industries is scheduled to reissue both of The Olivia Tremor Control’s classic two double-album full lengths (Music from the Unrealized Film Script: Dusk At Cubist Castle and Black Foliage: Animation Music Volume One) this October. Lest ye think these are two barebones reissues, nothing could be further from the truth. Original art has been rescanned and retouched. Both albums come housed in sturdy deluxe Stoughton tip-in jackets. And for the first time since its original release, Black Foliage has been remastered from the original tapes!

In addition to the vinyl and artwork, the band sifted through their archives to give fans over three hours of rare, hard-to-find or previously unreleased material in a 320kps download card. Drone. Tape loops. Live tracks. And finally, for the first time, all of the rare import b-sides and compilation tracks that came out in the 90’s are in one place. The Dusk bonus material features the bonus CD that was included with initial copies of the record when it came out in ‘96.

Here’s our story about Athens artist Sarah Hubbard, whose quilts will be on display this month starting Friday at Floorspace (in the Chase Park Warehouses). Sarah’s daughter India will also have her beautiful photographs on display as well.

Halló, this is Iceland.

I have heard that some important humans and cities have official photo-graphers. My Reykjavík has an official drawing person.

She is called Rán, and you can look at her drawings.

Bless bless, 
- Iceland 

P.S. Alísa made the moving picture, and Sin Fang made the músík.

So Iceland has an official drawing person and I have an official girl-crush on Rán! <3<3<3

mapsandtransit by way of Kyle Dawkins:

“Danse de Travers” arranged for classical guitar, glockenspiel, mandolin and digital scraps.

This Erik Satie tribute from Arbouse Recordings is out and about. I did this track a year or so ago but it’s nice to see it surface on the other side. Also featuring music by Max Richter, Hauschka, Rachel Grimes and Sylvain Chauveau. 

So lovely.
