BY Vivianne Lapointe 23 Aug 2012 @ 1:19 am | Categorized: Interview Series, Live_Art>
From time to time I love to feature madly talented independent publishers who have a vision similar to mine and whose success inspire me to keep building, keep pushing. When web designer Christopher Jobson launched Colossal, a blog of “art and visual ingenuity,” he thought he was simply creating an inspiration board of his discoveries in the fields of photography, design, animation, painting, installation art, architecture, drawing and street art.

BY Vivianne Lapointe 28 Jul 2012 @ 5:35 pm | Categorized: Inspiration Board, Live_Fashion>
Did you know that Charlotte Free was discovered while playing video games in an arcade back in 2010? Fair to say the geeky, pink-haired fashion kitten has come a long way since she signed with IMG Models a little over a year ago. Jason Lee Parry captured the true nature of this pretty young thing in a recent editorial for ELLEgirl Japan. It’s all fun & games, babies! Have a look:

Live To Eat: Brunch At Rosewood Tavern
BY Vivianne Lapointe 13 Jul 2012 @ 2:04 pm | Categorized: Food & Drinks, Live_Travel>
Since you’re going to go art picking at Known Gallery this weekend (really, you should), might as well make it a full Fairfax Village mission. A few weeks ago, Rosewood Tavern introduced their brunch menu, and as much as I thought this place couldn’t do anything better than their perfectly juicy ribeye, I’m now completely addicted to the tri-tip hash with two eggs and a bloody mary – you just can’t beat that on a hangover day.
Art Picking At Aaron Rose’s Known Gallery Fire Sale
BY Vivianne Lapointe 12 Jul 2012 @ 5:56 pm | Categorized: Events & Openings, Live_Art>
In the past few months I’ve become completely obsessed with American Pickers on History Channel. American hoarders are fascinating subjects; and whether pawned, picked or sold, random pieces of history hidden in garages, storage spaces and backyards around the country have become highly collectible and profitable. This past Saturday night, kids of all ages lined up by the hundreds, waiting in the heat of Fairfax for Known Gallery to unveil Aaron Rose‘s “Cash and Carry” fire sale. Sign of the times? I think so.

Interview Series: Earl Parker
BY Vivianne Lapointe 27 Jun 2012 @ 1:04 pm | Categorized: Live_Art>, Photography
I was kind of shocked when I read the invite to Earl Parker’s photo show and realized that this was to be his first exhibition ever. Since his epic days as a Big Brother Magazine contributor, Earl has been known to “disappear without a trace only to return days or weeks later with rolls and rolls of 35mm film documenting his journeys throughout L.A and beyond,” Sean Cliver explains. His sometimes controversial, always wonderful street captures have turned him into somewhat of a cult legend.

It’s rock n’ roll hashed with a slew of hot babes and California dreamin’ of course. Fashion photographer Andrew Kuykendall works and plays with such passion, he’s the rebel WITH the cause.
Interview Series: C.C. Sheffield Releases “Long Brown Hair”
BY Vivianne Lapointe 22 Jun 2012 @ 6:38 pm | Categorized: Interview Series, Live_Art>, Music
C.C. Sheffield’s new music video for her latest Ultra single Long Brown Hair is pure madness. AOL’s Spinner premiered the clip earlier today, describing the track as “a mixture of a ballad-driven lament and a dubstep freakout.” Her vicious love song is a lucky pretext for an edgy, violently seductive electronic choreography featuring three hot models fighting and moaning in a blood bath. Plus you’ve got C.C. parading in an array of absolutely stunning gowns and lingerie. It’s a banger!
