Where else but a freight train can you see a Bozo Texino piece ?
Where else but a freight train can you see a Bozo Texino piece ?
I have photos mainly in this alcove /transom between the front of the store and the back.
There are some black and white prints from reclaimed Fp-100C negatives as well as some 35mm, 6X9 and half frame prints, I printed them all at the San Francisco Photography Center AKA Harvey Milk Photo Center. In the front of the shop I also have a few color prints which I printed at RAYKO photography center. There is all types of art represented in the space, sculpture,instalations,ready0mades, paintings, silkscreens, drawings and of course photographs. It was an honor to be able to have my work hung among so many greats, please go see it if you get a chance and PLEASE let me know what you thought of it back here in the comments section.
The opening was over the top crowded crazy stories of people finding large amouts of money and big bags off weed. I hardly left the sidewalk but I did buzz in for a quick photo blitz giving the instant photos I took to people who posed for them. These photos were all black and white (fp-3000b) so I couldnt get a negative from them to make prints. I instead took the goop and made acetete enlargements at kinkos which then were brought to the darkroom where they made very rough looking contact prints. heres a few of them:
A few days later ,well, the next thursday ,I went out to a live show to see the band Bronze , who were playing their 24th or 25th show in a month , the others being throughout europe , suffice to say they were tighter than ever. Heres a photo from the right of the stage at the Eagle, where the show was.
you WILL listen to them here:
(open another window now this is a long post you need something new to listen too)
You will hear lots of sounds besides the drums and vocals. All of those sounds are being produced and controlled through that box that Joe is holding on the left of the stage, sure its going through a rack, but it has a lot of functions built into it..its quite amazing the only only thing I think it seems close to is the instrument from the thirites the therimin, but thats only in some sort of playing style, the box he has has controllers switches,levers, and motion sensors that change pitch and voulume and tone but also that can fire sequencers ( I am assuming all of this I havn't asked him about it ,just going by sounds) ok now that you have them playing in another window here is another photo of them
|failed double exposure(tried to get the vocalist rob into the shot as well)|
At the show
I was smiling ,when I turned around to find myself looking at Barry Mcgee.
I had seen him in the run up to the CHINA BOO gallery show but this was the first time since then ; and the tension and madness of hanging a show was gone.
It was the perfect chance to show him my new zine/ Paper blog " 7 shots" which now has nine issues.
Barry being helpfull as always , went around the Eagle trying to sell them for me. Im much too shy for that! i have an etsy shop...
|Good thing hes not on commision! MY #1 Salesperson|

More about the zines..
All of the 7 photos in each issue of 7 shots are exposed with manual
instant cameras. Many of the shots have notation as to which camera
was used. The original prints are hand placed on the copy machine for
each printing. The printinng and total numbers to date are noted , and
each copy is hand nnumbered.
They are all printed on 90 pound paper unless noted , The back (non
color) side has innformation about the camera ,date and subject of the
photos. The 81/2X14 sheets are then cut and folded into a 8 page mini
The easiest way to purchase them is from ETSY my shop the address there is(again) : ZO's Shop-
But they take some money as commision (unlike mr.mcgee)
...you could probably figure out how to paypal me as a gift for a slight discount (I save commision/you save shipping) . But even though it is a paper Blog I feel you should be able to aquire it like a zine.. in the old days we would trade zines through the mail. I don't want to trade Zines for this however as I am trying to make a living and unlike the old days I don't have free xerox copies so..
Becuase we all must remember the old ways I do offer a way to aquire them without having to inovlve yourself with the internet!
For the reader in the united states i am willing to take barter.
In the old days of finding zine adresseses from maximum rock and roll or FACTSHEET5 there would have been a notation WCC which stood for Well concealed Cash.. I dont want to take that path... however if you wish to order zines without going through etsy. What would be the most awsome thing that could happen is that People(thats you dear reader) Send me the components that I use to make the Zine... TRADE ME SOME OF THESE THINGS!! its more fun than bitcoin!!
Kinkos cards :$4 an issue or$ 35 for 9issues
please send to poBox170218 sf ca 94117-0218
and if you can let me know its to be expected. (
TWO_The other main component in this Zine is film. You may have a stash, or know someone that does, you may go into a camera store and ask if they have any expired film they are going to throw away.You can even buy it or send it to me from B&H .I want it!! I dont care about the date, the film can be polaroid or fuji but fuji is easier to find around .
heres what it looks like:
Film Barter rates:
FP-100C film -4 issues shipped for one pack ///9 issues shipped for 2 packs
Other films contact me.. I am always looking for it and will barter for whatever I might have that you would like..
If you are not in the US and you still want to barter (shipping might make it tough) get in touch ad we can try to work something out
