last november i discovered that every pair of shoes i owned, (five to be exact, (which is pretty good for a guy right?)), had been worn through with holes in their soles. this put me in quite the predicament seeing that i was/am “unemployed,” a student, and an artist, all of which = BROKE. so i had to figure out a way to replace them all as economically as i could.  after a good long think, i finally came up with what i felt to be quite a satisfactory solution. i decided that i would only buy one pair of shoes, and since i would have just that single set to work with, they needed to go with whatever i could/would wear. in other words, they had to be white, (i know what your thinking but brown does not always work!) now i wasn’t fooling myself, no sir. i realize that buying a pair of white kicks always ends in disappointment, (i.e. they turn grey/purple/brown sooner rather than later). so instead i decided to go into the situation with a plan in mind. i would use my new shoes as a canvas of sorts, welcoming any accidental marks whatsoever as a record of my activities and experience. once the shoes had run their course, i would save them, enshrining them in a plastic case to share with the rest of the world as a work of art, (“a year in the life” if you will). there was just one problem with this plan…

i swear sometimes i think people are spying on me. take this video for instance. it’s almost as if they followed me around my apartment some sunny morning and secretly video taped me just lounging about. well i’ve had it, enough is enough people! i need my privacy! anyway, the above footage is from a new ad for Oliver Peoples Designer Eyewear which was created by Lisa Eisner/NOWNESS, and features the ‘talents’ of both Devendra Banhart and girlfriend/model Rebecca Schwartz. of course a year or two ago these two were not an item. in fact he was seeing Natalie Portman, (who is now dead to the world), and she was dating this guy. (as they say, love fades?) but enough about the help. the real story here is that this video was actually shot on location at The Rainbow House, one of architect John Lautner’s amazing los angeles area masterpieces, (although i personally prefer the Sheats Goldstein Residence which was featured in one of the best movies ever). The Rainbow House is truly one of the greatest residences in la and definitely a work of art in itself. clearly, it  steals the show here. i for one was far too busy checking out the building’s facade with its powerful arching lines and solid yet sophisticated structural elements to even pay attention to anything else. i mean, when you see something as sexy and sensual as that right in front of your eyes, it’s kind of hard not to notice. am i right, or am i right
