Shazam Now Motherfuckers!

I have blogged about this guy's artwork a few times. The last time being here. Today fighting my afternoon sleepies, I went out for a bit. I ended up at Half Priced Books in the narcotic studies section which I always end up there when visiting HPB. Low and behold I found this little box with the words SHAZAM! written on it:
inside the box I found this:
I believe I am very close to finding out who this artist is. I'm a hound on his/her trail. If you know please let me know. -A.B.

Weird Picklez

I love the Dallas Farmer's Market. La Popular Tamale House is in shed 2 and this farmer at market has a shit ton of weird pickles for sale. Only $1. I'm going to get the courage to try one tomorrow. Maybe the Red Hot one?
I buy my spices at the Kurry King also in shed 2. Best spice dealer in town. Beats Whole Foods and Central Market by a long shot both in quality, selection and price.

Every pair of Dr Martens I have ever owned. Classic shit Mang. Every shoe has a story ... ask me.

Out Livin' Kings

Riding my bike the other day I found another piece by this guy on the edge of Deep Ellum. I wish somebody knew who was doing these. If you do please e-mail me at him@akbarker.com and let me know. I have other photographic evidence of his work here and here. I enjoy it very much.

Creature W/ The Atom Brain

I got to see Roky Erickson last Friday nite at the Kessler here in Dallas. I was front row baby for a psychedelic mind explosion. It was a dream come true. He sang all of his 13th Floor Elevators stuff as well as his own. If you get a chance to see him. I would suggest you do it. A true Psychedelic Texas Legend. enough said.


BTW it kinda freaked me out because Roky looked and dressed just like Buffalo George Toomer. RIP buddy. I miss you and think about you everyday.

Night Beats On

This is a crappy pano pic that I pasted together in Indesign from crappy digital phone pics of the Night Beats when they played on the astro turf at Good Records last weekend. I drank a bunch of codeine cough syrup and made my way up to the front and they killed it. It was total scuzzed out psych garage rock. I loved it. I even got my copy of the UFO CLUB/Night Beats 10" signed. I was a happy feely good kinda way guy. Might of been the music ... might of been the cough syrup or a combo of the two but I had me a hella good time. My only thing was I wish it woulda lasted longer. The music not the cough syrup. no scrap that, both the cough syrup and the music.

Mundane Milestone Muah

I'm not sure how this compares to other blogs/websites and shit but in a little over 2 years I have had over 30K hits. I think that's pretty good. roughly 41 hits a day or so for little ole' dickweed Aaron Barker and his shitty art. Ha, my next goal is in another 2 years to have over 100K hits. let the fun begin .... and who cares anyways? here is an abstract photograph I took with my camera. I feel it has cinematic qualities like a memory or a dream (click to enlarge):

Huffing New Fumes

Weekend before last I saw New Fumes (i.e. Daniel Huffman of the polyphonic spree) at the Canton Co-op across the street from my house. His show was amazing. Not only was the music sonically mind blowing but the projected video for each song was truly over the top. I was awe struck and mega inspired. I ended up getting my record signed and then a few nights later seeing Daniel at a screening of Norwegian Ninja. We talked for a few minutes. He is an extremely nice fellow. I cant say enough great things .... I digress. The New Fumes kicked ass and I would recommend catching a performance as soon as you can. Here is some digital photographic evidence I took with my phone .... Daniel is in the corner:

Burger & Fries Please

I saw this in Deep Ellum the other day ... in this day and age of corporate advertising and marketing folk trying to cash in on any dollar they can find under a fuckin rock. I've seen some ad campaigns that are supposed to fool the consumer into think that they are street art. I wonder if this is one of those? Obviously it's a Faile rip-off. (see image here) but with burger and fries instead of a bunny? and there is a QVC code. What really sends my mind running is the Texas shape next to it with what looks like the Carl's Jr./Hardees face in it. Is this a marketing scheme for their parent company CKE? I dunno know but pretty interesting shit and I'm left with more questions than answers. If any one knows what the fuck is going on here hit me up and educate a curious brother will ya? Thanks



these are digital photographs taken with my camera phone.

I'm a little bummed I broke my special little white 35mm holga this weekend drunk climbing outta the Cathedral of Junk while in Austin. Lucky I didn't break my head or leg or somethin' But, it did give me a chance to see the inside of a holga and understand a little bit on how they work. Plus, I got to buy a new one ;)
