Heal Everything! Heal Everyone! print by Ron Regé, Jr. with words by Peter Glantz & Becky Stark. 18”x24” so psyched.
Hey, in this week’s episode John C. Reilly tells Becky a personal story about being the Easter Bunny for his son’s class and how he used the same techniques as when he’s acting in a movie. But this time the stakes were higher - could he fool his own kid?
John just happened to be in the neighborhood.

I have a print of this above my bed and i love love love it
This is a video of Becky Stark from Lavender Diamond and Andrew W.K. lip-synching to each other’s song as the other sings. I’ve watched it… maybe too many times? I wrote about the new Lavender Diamond record for Pitchfork today (in brief: it’s not perfect but I like it) (but also, isn’t everything) and tried to work in something about how Becky Stark : Love :: Andrew W.K. : Partying, as a way to explain the “Are these people for real?” question, but couldn’t make it fit. Anyway, this video A) makes me laugh even when I think about it and B) pushed me to listen to “Party Hard” for the first time ever (I KNOW) and I am now obsessed with the piano in it and I wish my hair was longer so I could go as Andrew WK for Halloween.
