I will redact this if needs be,
but my friend and sister in hoops Rachel Garlin reports that the Keith Haring show “The Political Line” at the DeYoung, Saturday thru February 16, 2015 rocks.
She should know because she is a rocker, or at least a new folk, hard folk not quite a folk-punk but rather spunky. In fact Rachel Garlin the former Berkeley High and Harvard ladies basketballstalwart, has a new song about Keith Haring –although to me it sounds maybe a wee bit to much like Natalie Merchant “Hey Jack Kerouac”.
Rachel went to the opening gala and met Julian Cox (he insists he does not follow soccer but played rugby and or has probably never met or read Alan Black, alack) and then Rennee in outreach (Rennee B, as compared to KFOG’s Renee R). Rachel wants to play her new song about Haring at “the Political Line” and maybe some of the publishing to the museum and or the Estate.
Good on Rachel.
Baker of BrandChron cooks up a tale of Haring as not a post-Pop graffito gone mainstream but “as a sort of editorial cartoonist of American culture as he encountered it” which is, come to think of it, or think to come of it, what I am trying to do here at Plastic altlandia.
weird possible seque to When the Game Stands Tall: they made Maurice Jones Drew in the book and real life into a white guy named Chris Ryan.
weirder folk from previous post: I actually did throw out my back
schlepping the up to 99 things I meant to write about or at least count – I am so Jewish — Saturday. Today more sensibly and humbled and brought down a rung or two I carry more like five: Neil Hayes, Shields and Salerno on Salinger, which I’ve already plugged to a Columbia ’93 who works at Microsoft in joint ventures or something and is nephew to a Handicap 10 i.e. world class Argentinian polo player I believe him — I said my three favorite Columbians are Ginsberg, Bill Campbell and Matt Gonzalez;
