Dog postcards at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse.

I recently interviewed Bradley Spinelli, author of Killing Williamsburg, a novel about a suicide epidemic in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Check it out on the small press blog.
Artnoose was one of the first residents of the Cyberpunk Apocalypse, and one of the hardest workers. From the time she moved in she cut down the bullshit rate at the house to almost 0. You had to be careful is you said “we should…” and Artnoose was around, because you would—whatever it was would happen.
In a lot of ways the Noose has achieved her dreams, she owns her own home and letterpress print shop, she has a baby boy whom she loves, but of course dreams are different when you dream them vs. when you live them. And being a single mom is hard.
There are a lot of kickstarters out there. I often post about this or that person (sometimes myself) selling things or asking for help. Artnoose’s is a no bullshit low goal Kickstarter asking for a little help, because she’s tired. She works when her kid goes to sleep fixing plumbing or letterpress printing so she can pay the bills. She wants to try and streamline her work a bit. Because being tired makes a hard life harder.
Artnoose’s modest goal has been reached but I know she could use all the support she can get and more. Please check it out and help a lady that’s helped me, and the CpA so much: CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE KS PAGE!

Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is Boing Boing’s podcast featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the practical side of how they do what they do. In episode 22, we speak to Eric Shiner, Director of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
"To Give Voice to Those That Don’t Have It" and "Making the Anomalies of Society Into the Paradigms of Society" are among his responsibilities as the museum’s director. Over the past twenty years, Andy Warhol’s popularity has soared. Shiner talks with us about Warhol’s legacy, about exhibiting the museum’s collection in the Middle East, China, and Japan, and about engaging fans of the legendary pop artist through social media and interactive technology (on-site at the museum, and online).
In 2013, Shiner curated the Armory Focus portion of the Armory Show. He spoke with us about the commercial side of the art world. He explains, “Warhol himself saw absolutely no separation between art and business.”
Finally, Shiner discusses the impact of the internet on the art world and how he finds new and exciting artists.
