Fair warning: Combined, the footage above and below doesn't even add up to two minutes. But I've been meaning to post the former since a few days ago, when South by Southwest first made it available -- the trailer for actor-turned-director Jonny Mars's America's Parking Lot, which will world-premier ...

Catherine DownesIf you're like me, you wondered what exactly Shepard Fairey would spin at Saturday's Dallas Contemporary Phenomenon event. Sadly, Tuvan throat singing and Icelandic death metal were not in the cards. Instead, it was sort of like being at a really fun wedding reception: House o ... More >>
Thursdays in Dallas are getting unruly, reworking my school night routine a bit. I make sure the laundry, nails and hair are did a day or two early since we are all bound to run into each other once the sun sets. Last night, Dallas overfloweth. I love Parks and Recreation as much as the next gal, ... More >>
When Shepard Fairey speaks his eyes go someplace else. They squint and look beyond you, alternating left and then right, scanning the entirety of his surroundings. It isn't posturing and he isn't searching for a more interesting person to flag down. The fact of the matter is that Fairey has the eyes ... More >>
Spent a few hours today with Phil Romano, Stuart Fitts and Larry "Butch" MacGregor at their Singleton Boulevard HQ at the foot of the Calatrava bridge. It's the brick building painted red -- one of three on that side of the bridge now decorated with Shepard Fairey's handiwork. When I pulled up a ... More >>
If you wanted to attend Saturday night's Phenomenon event with Shepard Fairey at the Dallas Contemporary but can't swing the $50 ticket -- or were just interested in hearing the artist's intent, there's a chit chat with Fairey at 7 p.m. tonight at the Dallas Contemporary.
The view from the foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is about to get a lot cooler. This afternoon a spotless rented silver minivan pulled up at 331 Singleton, a vacant West Dallas office space with a large, invitingly blank outer wall. A group of four guys rolled from the van and started unloadin ... More >>
Tickets are still available for two events on Saturday, February 4 that target youthful supporters of the arts. The Young Professionals of the Dallas Opera are having beers and rapping about Wagner and the Dallas Contemporary has international DJ/Artist/Cool Dude Shepard Fairey spinning a giant bash ...

Fine, so Ed Young's get-to-screwing sermon may be nothing more than a genius PR stunt. But the accompanying artwork on Fellowship Church's Web site is pretty fab. "Like Saul Bass and Paula Scher had a baby," says our art director, the great Alexander Flores. "Doesn't exactly say 'Seven Days of Sex,' ... More >>
Maybe you know DJ Z-Trip. Maybe you don't. He's a pretty big deal on the touring DJ circuit, though. Know that. And he got himself fairly involved in the election, throwing various "Party for Change" events across the country alongside Shepard Fairey--the guy responsible for this image, which we l ... More >>
There have been many, many parodies of Shepard Fairey's Obama "Hope" posters, few of which elicit even the faintest hint of a giggle. (Always did like the Luke Skywalker "New Hope" version, though the execution doesn't top the concept.) What you see above is, of course, our version courtesy Observer ... More >>
