Weekly: Diet Coke x Infinity Mirrors, and the Great Shellfish Cookbook

April! It’s April, and I don’t know where the last three months have gone. I’ve been busy with movies and interviews and music and television and some gaming, and I’d say it’s been a pretty great year. San Diego was fantastic last month, and I interviewed Molly Parker for Lost In Space, but I owe some love to a few events I haven’t had a chance to write about yet.

Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now’s the Time at Art Gallery of Ontario

In the late 1970s in New York City there was a street kid artist named Jean-Michel Basquiat. A Brooklyn born kid of Haitian descent, this street kid was a talented artist who expressed himself through graffiti and tagging subway cars, warehouse doors, pieces of wood found on the street–anywhere on anything. His artwork commented on the over-hyped, over-commercialized world that served the few at the expense of the many and he would sign his work “SAMO” followed by a copyright symbol.
