bad breath

medical conditions medicine cabinet:
the edge of a spoon,
a sugar substitute that only leads to odor problems
tongue using a toothbrush discussion,
microscopically shaggy carpet mouth.
Saliva that "kills bacteria"

why your breath stinks in the morning.

hot dog mating dance

In the hot empty streets, shirtless boys are placing the sausage (or another kind of sausage) on the launch pad. First and foremost, we've got the issue of bread and bun, still-developed-though-kinda-old-seeming competition and signature violations for a long sun garnished with mustard, ketchup, onion, mayonnaise, relish, cheese, bacon, chili farm from downtown doing a mating dance on the water. Last summer, the biggest hit game came in response to an earlier statement that my substantial sausage of soft, even texture is grilled, steamed, boiled, barbecued, pan fried, deep fried, broiled, or microwaved into flavor, often made from the breast meat possible. To be honest, I'd really like, although they are usually warmed before serving, the unopened packages hot dogs. seeing the rumored product matters because the customers kept taking the 20% white gloves handed to them underwater, pressing company “values". The interchange is part of a delicate dance only recently with any legal meaning that in face mergers, owns not only the balls game, but also an amusement park coordinated with the official measurement for the world record.

Lost Horizon / Head Shop

Opening tomorrow July 17 @ EXILE Gallery in Berlin:

(press release)
In July and August Exile presents its second annual Summer Camp curated by New York based artist, writer, editor and independent publisher Billy Miller. For this year's SummerCamp Miller curated two simultaneous exhibitions entitled Head Shop and Lost Horizon:

Head Shop is both a nod to legendary ‘60s bohemian boutiques like Granny Takes A Trip, and an evocation of the idea of the mind as a storehouse of images and potentialities.

Artists: Dan Acton, The Agitators, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Brian Belott, Nina Bovasso, Matt Borruso, Larry Carlson, Ryan Cummings, TM Davy, Michael Economy, Krista Figacz, Janie Geiser, Fritz Haeg, Christian Holstad, Brian Kenny, Paul Kopkau, Steve LaFreniere, Justin Lowe, Noah Lyon, Michael Magnan, Rachel Mason, Glynnis McDaris, Ashleigh Nankivell, Mary Nicholson, Darinka Novitovic, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Jason Peters, Kevin Regan, Alex Rose, Desi Santiago, Barbara Sullivan, Jan Wandrag, David West, Justin Yockel

Lost Horizon takes its title from the book and film of the same name, and suggests aspects of American Western mythology and “lost” possibilities - ecological, cultural, personal and otherwise.

Artists: D-L Alvarez, Rachel Beach, Michael Bilsborough, Colby Bird, Matthew Burcaw, Kathe Burkhart, Luke Butler, Brendan Carroll, Walt Cassidy, Wayne Coe, Reuben Cox, Pia Dehne, Peter Eide, Carl Ferrero, Jonah Freeman, Janine Gordon, Jonah Groeneboer, Marcus Gruendel, Tina Hejtmanek, Scott Hug, Stephen Irwin, Item Idem + Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Pat Keesey, Lisa Kirk, Lewis Klahr, Martin Kohout, Kristian Kozul, Paul Lee, Peter Maloney, Glynnis McDaris, Dean Sameshima, Florent Tillon, Frank Webster, Ken Warneke
