The London Police / dog show this sunday

Hello LA friends,
Chaz and Bob here from TLP. We would very much like to invite you to our dog show extravaganza this Sunday in Culver City. It has been a project we have been wanting to do for a long time and finally we are realising the dream this weekend thanks to Corey Helford Gallery. The attached flyer has all the information. Numbers are limited so get back to the gallery as soon as possible with your desired amount of guests so we can make sure you have seats. The show will be late afternoon and feature live singing, our new short film “DOGumentary” and a dog fashion show. The following week on Saturday the 13th we will have our gallery show at Corey Helford Gallery with new dog themed paintings and sculptures. Hope you can make it or let any other LA friends know who might be interested,

You can hear our new album (of 12 life changing dog songs) entitled ‘ FOR DOGS SAKE ‘here

A week ago my friend Saber hired some sky writers to write slogans supporting public art programs over NYC. I kicked in some funds to support because I believe in the cause. Check it out.

ART > MONEY: Design to Define a Movement – Contest

“So… many of you know that I believe in the power of art to shed light on politics and encourage people to investigate issues further. You may also know that I’m passionate about eliminating the corrupting influence of money in politics. I want democracy to work for everyone, not just the wealthy and powerful. Well, bam!… the unPAC campaign is an opportunity to bring art and ant-corruption activism together. Please check it out and help to create and spread some great art while inspiring the restoration of democracy!   This competition is about empowering people to take back control of their democracy, not from one party or another, but from the influx of money that has concentrated political power in the hands of the few.  It’s about using art to push back against the existing power structures in our society and inspiring real change”.   -Shepard

Important VOTER Information

After seeing my Sarah Siverman voter suppression post, RJ Rushmore from Vandalog told me about a site that clearly explains the voter ID requirements in each state. VoterID.me is the site to check out. Voting is extremely important despite the inherent flaws in the two party system. Make sure you have what you need to vote and please exercise your right to weigh in by voting!

Just Sayin’…

Do you have the proper I.D. to vote?

Sarah Silverman is smart, funny, and gives a sh*t… all qualities that I admire and are thoroughly demonstrated in her video response to Republican voter suppression tactics. WARNING: there are some bad words in the video, so if you have sensitive ears you may want to avoid this video and the real world in general. Life  with those monks who don’t speak might be your best future option. For those unafraid of dealing with the real world with its language and PROBLEMS, please check out this video.
