Earlier this year we got solicited to participate in a 'DEATH' themed group art show. FYI-- Wowch is always more than happy to contribute any high school stoner misfit imagery for any occasions. The curator was nice enough to give us 4 or 5 months notice and of course I waited til the last week to do it. What the curator forgot to do was provide us with any invitations or information about the opening. WHOOPS. So yeah I really can't tell you a gosh darn thing on how it went. Wasn't there. I have no idea what other stuff was in the show or even where it was. No biggie. I recall life being kinda hectic at the time anyway.
Atleast I know one person liked it , cos when I picked the piece up from the currator a few months later she had it hanging above her faux-fireplace. Did I mention its 30" x 40" and framed? pretty cool....... It's currently hanging above our garbage can and is for sale.
I'm bored to death, so here are some deathly tunes.
the walker bros - death of romance (sweet sexxxy sax)
the wipers - better off dead (from their first 7". makes me think of the movie)
goblin - death dies (sounds like the perfect scary movie chase scene)
pagan altar - judgement of the dead (sabbath wannabes with creeper analog keyboards)

Hey Buddies. ENON is on tour for the next year. If you're cool enough to go see them u can purchase a Wowch designed shirt that might look like this. A few things about Enon....
- John used to be in a rad band from Ohio called Brainiac. As a teen I had a tumultuous relationship with their music. I loved the records, but every time I went to see them I always got pissed off. I confronted John on this recently, pointing out the fact that he once kicked a row of empty beer bottles on the front of the stage into the crowd, directly into my knees. His defense was that the bar (Staches) was lousy at busing empties and that the stage was too high. Gotta love that response. Here's a jam from their 2nd album.
braniac - hot metal dobermans
- Toko used to be in a buncha bands, most notably BLONDE REDHEAD. She has funny stories about how awkward it was touring with them. They kinda frowned upon her drinking. They scolded her for taking showers after 'bedtime.' I think she mentioned they even had to go to a band psychiatrist, although I could be making that one up. Anyway when she aint making music, she's the funnest bartender around over at that bar Enids in Williamsburg. Don't ask me which came first...Enids or Enon. My brain can't handle it. This track is my favourite from their new album....
enon - those who don't blink

So Roomie and I did something especially embarrassing this weekend. Our dear pal Matt Bailey made the mistake of showing us some other blog where a dude made a pizza with nothing but Mcdonalds toppings. It was so disgustingly awesome we had to try it for ourselves.
INGREDIENTS: 2 cheeseburgers, 8 chicken mcnuggets, 1 small fries, 1 boboli crust, mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, loads of shame, a pinch of regret
how about some celebratory tunes!!!!!
McDonalds Disco R&B Makeover

TOKEN HALLOWEEN PARTY!!!
Lets all give it up for my neighbor and good pal Jacques Renault. I hear he won the best DJ award last night at the Paper Magazine Nightlife Awards. He's come a long way since since his happy hour gig at The Alligator Lounge back in 2003-04. BUT SERIOUSLY the guy helps Wowch out all the time ( I think he was up for the first intern position at one point, hehe). Check out some of his tracks below after his Wowch glamour shot.
RUNAWAY - Aint Afraid To Beg
Black Pony - Jacques Renault Wowchy edit
My WOWCH Bro Matt wanted me to display the following image that expresses his hatred for rats. I'm gonna assume it spawned from that giant decomposing rat in the curb in front of our building. Anyway, add this to our long list of fabled bands---ARMD--- All RATS MUST DIE!!

OKEE DOKEE. I had to do it. The Bargain Bazaar closed down. Friedman's Active-wear moved to Brooklyn. My whole world has been turned upside down !!!!
What better way to ground myself than to start BLOGGIN again. Oh water cooler how I've missed you!
Ok gonna spill my guts here. This blog aint gonna be just a showcase for my complaining skills. My main goal heres is an attempt at showcasing all the rad graphic design and art work WOWCH does that goes under the radar. Believe it or not we aren't always the best at self-promoting our various creative endeavors beyond our goofy shirts. (on a side note I'm not sure how or why the font color and size just changed up on me, but cool trick, blogspot).
CASE IN POINT----that crazy face melting balloon pic above. Earlier this year WOWCH was commissioned by that hottt band The Crystal Castle's label to do the cover art work for their album and based on their input thats what we submitted. For whatever reason they didn't like it (lets just assume its cos they're Canadian), and no offense was taken. Besides I've yet to see any of their music in actual cd/lp format. Anyway not too long after we finished it, a totally cool Japanese art 'zine called ROCKET asked us to contribute some work, so we sent them a bunch of images including Mr Balloonface up there. As you can see below, Mr. Balloonface turned into Mr. Coverboy! Everything turns up WOWCHY!!!!
BTW FYI SMD
WHO LIKES FREE TUNES in MP3 FORMAT? Gonna be sharing them often on this here blincoln blog. What better way to start than with an 11 minute J Mascis face melter?
