If you happen to be in NYC anytime soon, check out the William Eggleston retrospective, Democratic Camera at the Whitney , it's pretty inspiring. Long known as the godfather of modern color photography, his pictures capture the beauty in the mundane suburban South of the 60's and 70's. The show is up until January 25th.
Why am I writing to you about a comic called Battlefields? It's not just because of my deep and lasting love for the work of Garth Ennis, creator of Preacher, among many other excellent comics. It's because The Night Witches , a three-part miniseries, is the story of an all-female fighter pilot squadron in the Soviet Union during World War II. And yes, it's based on a true story. These women were given substandard planes and flew only at night, and faced horrible treatment from their own side as well as the opposition, and yet they fought as bravely as any of the men.

I am soo excited because tonight is the opening of Cindy Sherman's newest art exhibition since 2004! Her new art show consists of a series of color photographs about beauty, self-image and aging, and if her old work is any indication they should be very interesting. The opening will be held from 6:00-8:00 pm at Metro Pictures gallery in New York City, located on 519 W 24th St. If you can't make it out tonight, the show will go on from November 15 until December 23. Check out the gallery website for more information! Image courtesy of Metro Pictures.

I recently discovered the work of artist Theresa Honeywell, who made this fabulous pink knitted motorcycle cozy! Honeywell combines traditionally female crafts like knitting and embroidery with supposedly ''macho-man'' subjects such as biking, tattoos, fixing things with tools, etc. I like how Honeywell plays with gender stereotypes in a fun way and I have to say, if I ever went to someone's house and they just casually had a motorcycle in their garage with a pink knitted cozy on it, I think I would be in paradise.

I still don't know what hit me, even two days after experiencing all that is a Quintron and Miss Pussycat show. The New Orleans-based art rockers (which essentially consists of a one-man band and a Maraca-playing backup singer) played Santos Party House, the NYC venue owned by previous BUST Boy du Jour, Andrew W.K. He was the host with the most Monday night, and did his best to hawk the $4 Budweiser specials to a packed house. Here he is, looking snazzy in what a girl next to me noted as possibly trousers from Men's Warehouse. Good call, they were pleated and everything. Imagining A.W.K.
