LoveBOMB & Harold & Maude

It's been a quiet start to the year at Medium Reality & Pandora's Trunk, focused on moving the studios again (back to our old digs downtown!) and producing a video project. I wanted to let you know about some upcoming events, fresh goods, and all the usual amazingness, both flash and substance.

Join us for swanky beats, sexy clothes, lingerie, burlesque dancers, and a whole lotta hubba hubba.
Also featuring a day spa for all your pampering needs and cute little gifts perfect for the occasion.

I will have some rad new clothes there, the leading edge of my own personal embroidery revolution. Send some vector graphics my way if you want to see 'em on the clothes.

Also if you are feeling feisty, or even a little curmudgeonly, Harold and Maude might be for you. If you haven't seen this hilarious 1971 cult classic, come see it at Brava Theater, the fabulous restored vaudeville house where we held our December runway show. They are opening their doors for us to invade again. Join me!

doors open at 7:30, show at 8.

Harold and Maude, one of the weirdest and most inspirational classic love stories about an unusual love affair, is a fabulous way to beat the February blues, connect with your loved ones, and I promise you won't be squicked out by it if you're not feeling the loving spirit. Well, maybe a little, but not by butterflies and sunshine and googley bedroom eyes, just by effing weird awesomeness.

fractal wood burning pt1 of 3

Stuff like this seems so embryonic but compelling... This spring seems to be shaping up to be all about art/technology intersections and fashion/music intersections. In my spare time this summer i want to make a music server that you can cuddle with.
