blah blah blog. the show with yar at domy opened last friday. a lot of people came out. drank beers. bought art. bought books. good times. dan, russell, layne, nick, and everyone else involved really pulled everything together. doing a cool thing and made a good night. thanks guys.
domy ran an ad in hamburger eyes for the last show they did with shawn smith. apparently they actually sold a lot of his work too. stuffed animals giving hugs? who would've thought? but more importantly there was a line at the bottom of the ad about this show coming up. and hamburger eyes is awesome. www.hamburgereyes.com. duh.
