The Look Ahead: Wings of Desire, Trees of Thirst, Relationships Left Wanting, and Aerosol in the Future
Here we are after another weekend. This one was special, in that it’s done a number on everyone’s sense of time. The day’s get shorter and the nights get cold, maybe. There is a cool front on its way. That should hit Tuesday night or Wednesday. So, in short, aside from the events we’ve gathered below, nature’s got something in store for us too. Double the good stuff!

Most of you have probably seen this one. Although, not in black and white and certainly not in German. Angels watch over the earth. One, in particular, longs to relate to humans. Its desires grow even stronger when it falls in love with a mortal woman. Is this ringing a bell yet? At the risk of sounding like a snob, I’ll go ahead and say this 1987 version completely outdoes the Cage/Ryan redux. And yes, that’s Bruno Ganz and Peter Falk.
It’s been a rough year for Houston’s trees. If there were ever a time to attend a RedBuds event and donate, let this year’s dry conditions be your catalyst. Beyond that, it should be a nice cool evening in the Four Seasons pool area, perfect for create-your-own-smores. Also, as part of that $10 evening, you’ll be receiving a complimentary glass of wine, light appetizers, and holiday drink specials.

We’ve all been around the naive newly formed couple. Believing that the other half would stay true no matter what obstacle may arise. This skewed view of human nature is nothing new. It was alive and thriving back in the 1500’s. Look how far we’ve come. It’s said that this is one of Mozart’s finest operas, poetically and musically. I hope so, because the thought of wagering whether or not your mate will remain faithful, sounds like that reality show on the island. You know the one.
Aerosol Warfare Gallery’s ROCK THE LOT!

When: Saturday, November 26th | 7:00PM

The rocking lot will play host to the STICK ‘EM UP! exhibition. Look for posters and photographs from the artists in the film. Expect Give Up, Dual, Eyesore, Cutthroat, 2:12, Shreddi, David Elizondo, Shannon Reiswig, Marco Torres, Vote Right and Ack. You’ll get a chance to see twenty years of street art as GONZO247, Jester & Reverend Butter display the art installation, ARTifacts. If that weren’t enough, also on display will be pieces by “The Recruits.” That’s David Lozano’s thoughts becoming things, Jonathan Jardin (AFTK) artist and illustrator, Tok’s reflections of his culture, Varina Rush’s post-it mural, Keegan Farrell’s Trash Revival, photography by Marina Torres and the Aerosol Warfare Army Surplus.
