The Subconscious Art Of Shirt Removal

and-a-half_sola_buffed_1.jpg

Matt Connors' photo of a dad pushing a Mamas & Papas Sola stroller down the street on the east side of LA somewhere reminded me of two things:

Matt McCormick's awesome 2001 short film, The Subconscious Art of graffiti Removal, which was the first attempt to analyze municipal buffing programs within the art historical context of abstraction and minimalism. With voiceover from Miranda July, which, well.

Also I need to get to the gym.

Check out the Mamas & Papas Sola, which runs $379-419 in the US. The black one above is the best and cheapest. [amazon]

Or be a cheap hustler by getting it on a used copy of the Best of RESFEST Shorts, Vol. 3 for like $3. [amazon]

this guy was actually walking backwards up the hill crazily enough! working the lower legs I guess...

now that you mention it, his calves do look a little skinny.

I'm worried he's going to slip and let that thing go. Two hands, man! Two hands!
