This is probably one of the most visually intense shows I've been a part of. The opening for Psych Out was last night and I can't believe I am up at 9am writing this. I should still be asleep dreaming about pigs fornicating with lamb to create an ultimate gyros meat...this is what I dream and think about alllll the time. Anywho, Jarrett and I have worked our balls off particularly this past week to really make this show come together. It was hot as shit in the gallery during the week, we were tired, stankin, and going a little crazy. This is the first time a show almost sold out!
Enjoy the fruits of our labor!
This is sort of a close up of the installation we did in the front room. I think its safe to say that I lost about 50,000 brain cells and maybe impotent now. No mask and spray paint indoors = stupid.
This is sort of the approach Jarrett and I took in doing the whole show. Kind of organized chaos, almost schizophrenic. A lot of swearing went down.
These fuckers are huge.
My nephew Chan-Yu made it out. Ladies, he is totally single. He may look young but he's already seen boobs. Light years ahead of me.
Jova, 1/4 of the The Beer Run Gallery also served as the bartender and got everyone drunk. Solid work all around from the staff. The night went solidly due to the hard work these guys did throughout the night.

So fast forward 5 hours later where I'm pretty wasted, tired, and drenched in sweat and rain. Time to head down to Simone's for a night cap. Cheech and Chong 2010.
Loly and Nuntida representin. Loly sat in that pose for hours. We thought she was a stuffed animal.
Here's Dave and Britt sitting pretty. Nuntida with the perfect timing with the thumb up. Her hand really is the size of Dave's head. It's really gross.
CZR and Tatiana trying to figure out who cut the cheese.
This was a show Jarrett and I really worked our asses off on and I like to think that the work spoke for itself on intensity and completion. The opening was awesome despite the rain and heat, everyone was very supportive and I couldn't be more grateful for a night like that. Yeah yeah yeah - sentimental, but I really did appreciate all of the people that came through. I also almost barfed in the cab ride home and maxed out a DiGiorno pizza - its a mothafuckin self rising crust bitch!!!
