Making a Spectacle by Chris Pilkington

I came across a fantastic limited edition graphic novel about a crow named Jim. It is geared towards children and has a moral story to it. It looks lovely! Anyone know how I can get my hands on a copy?

Crow’s Commentary (a song by CorvidCanine)

I would like to share with you an original experimental metal song by CorvidCanine called “Crow’s Commentary” written and performed by Matthew Borders a.k.a. CorvidCanine. Matthew warns us to listen to it at a low level at first… you can download Crow’s Commentary here.

Crow’s Commentary

Original Artwork by Matthew Borders a.k.a. CorvidCanine

Crow’s Commentary lyrics:

Knocking at your window
But only for a treat
Or perhaps a gleaming treasure
To adore and to keep
Black-blue like the midnight sea
Clever, mischievous master of the sky
Poor human in the window
Who sees not, we share the same tone
In our eyes

Matthew (CorvidCanine) wrote, “the album still has a way to go before it is finished, but I’d like to go ahead and share this song.”

You can learn more about the special project here. Or you can hear all of his music here.

Thank you for sharing Matthew!

This exhibit was really crazy. The Costume Institute put it on, but put all the mannequins in the period rooms, which are usually empty (of both mannequins and museum-goers apparently). This one was crazy, since she’s holding her mask in one hand, and the raven face is supposed to be her actual face. The table in front of her has a whole bunch of bird statues (like she’s holding court, or something) and they had raven cries looping in the background. It was probably the most provoking exhibit we saw.
