Zak Smith is a punk rock artist, that likes to draw "pictures of girls". He has shown at the Whitney, and has even illustrated Thomas Pynchon's "Gravity Rainbow", which is quite a feat. He has all the images up on his site, oh yeah, and he also does porn under the name "Zak Sabbath". Rock On!
The Los Angeles County Museum held their late night bash last night and the turn out was crazy. It's LA so I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but hundreds of people lined up around the block to "party" at the museum. It was free to get in, but the drinks were expensive, and I found it interesting how the county museum was trying to re-invent itself by creating a "hip" club atmosphere. But the reason why we went was to see a free screening of "Art School Confidential". Of course, a lot of the bits I was in were cut out, but I still managed to see myself two or three times. And I also ran into my friend Nicky, who plays the "angry lesbian", it was fun watching it with her, as she is heavily featured. Anyways, I think the reviews are wrong, "Art School" was really freak'n hilarious, especially if you've gone to art school. I recommend seeing it when it comes out May 5th.

Siegfried and Roy attended a memorial for the late German artist, Juergen Aldag. Aldag had a long time relationship with the two magicians and was also very close to the German rockers, The Scorpions. At the memorial, Roy told fans, "Dont worry, the magic's back!"
I just learned about this thing called Cosplay, where fans of Manga and video games dress up as their favorite characters. Well, it seems to be an interesting group, for more images click here! Note - some of these images appear explicit, even though they are cartoons. **the cosplay girls are below the Anime**
A friend of mine told me about these, I think they're done in some way to raise money/awareness surrounding hunger issues. Maybe they donate the cans afterwards, which would be cool I guess, if you like Tuna and Dolmas. Some of these are incredible, check it out here

Sorry, my posting has suffered but I have just started a new show, Knocked Up from Judd Apaptow, the writer/director of forty year old virgin. It seems that his new one picks up where his last one left off... sex. Seth Rogen will play the lead who gets a blind date pregnant. Check out this article for more.
