Sorry to hear this. I really hope they catch the ass wipe’s that did it. There really is nothing worse than having things stolen from you. I hope you can rebuild the store and come back stronger. All the best.

Hopefully the tougher window (maybe combined with something like motion activated lights or surveillance cams . . . even fake ones) will prevent this from happening yet again.

So sorry this happened to your store. Is there any surveillance video from the area nearby?

Comment on Joe Brainard Would Be Nearly 20 Years Older Now by John Brainard http://wowcool.com/engine/joe-brainard-would-be-nearly-20-years-older-now/comment-page-1/#comment-16939 Tue, 11 Mar 2014 21:31:45 +0000 http://wowcool.com/engine/?p=10076#comment-16939 Yes- today Joe would be 72. I have just now stood on my terrasse in Paris and lifted a glass of wine (and a cigarette)in the direction of New York, (as have my brother and sister, from the states and Canada respectively) to honor and remember him on his birthday. He was- as apparently you know- an extraordinary man. It pleases me to see that others note his birthday as well, and remember my sweet, generous, gifted, wonderful brother.
All the best to you as well- (whoever the hell you are, I don’t care- enough that you love Joe.)
John Brainard

Matt from God Hates Computers here; excited to read about the shop! I have been living in Oakland for the past four years and often like to make a day excursion to the south bay (mostly for banh mi). So now is more reason!

Take care,

Happy new year! I’m an illustration student living in Rhode Island originally from Austin, TX. I made a drawn loop that I think work nice for your show at WowCool. It’s called Chicken Men. Please watch on my behance website, and in the meantime I will upload in a form that you can then download.

Thanks for your time!

Comment on The Urban Exploration Endless Slideshow by N_ga http://wowcool.com/engine/the-urban-exploration-endless-slideshow/comment-page-1/#comment-16680 Thu, 14 Nov 2013 01:35:46 +0000 http://wowcool.com/engine/?p=9848#comment-16680 Certainly beautiful galleries, but not in the vaguely resigned film-noir-like beauty that declining populations, low sex drives, and infrastructure collapses would suggest. Instead, these empty, broken, and abandoned places seem to me to represent the enduring spirit of humankind. Long after the original creators of these places no longer have a use for them, the indelible stamp of contemporary civilization will begin (and has begun) to meld with nature, creating future relics that simultaneously speak to Ozymandias’ aspirations and sniff at their limited scope. Abandoned and decrepit buildings aren’t the signpost to the end of anything, but to a transition away from the known/expected. All a matter of perspective, I guess. If a quote may be used solely as food for thought: “Cynicism is easy, hope is hard.”
