Not Out Of The Woods Yet

Can you believe it? Another art show is opening at Everbrite Mercantile Co. this Saturday.

Not Out Of The Woods Yet reflects Alejandro Teichberg's semi-urban perspective of nature from which he is inseparable, yet alienated. Teichberg weaves natural themes together with personal memory, and allegory into landscapes that represent his psychic environment.

Just like our bodies react to exposure, so do our minds, well- marinated in processed foods and sensory overload. As every minute is layered with contradiction- tinged truths, the definition of nature expands while the very edges of the woods shrink. Despite these discords the mind ties the loose ends into a relatively uniform whole.

Alé, a old friend from my Richmond days, will be showing his collection of richly painted canvases. The opening will include intermittent sounds by ambient-experimental project Muilch.

best spam evar

There really is an art to writing spam. One of my accounts has been spam-heavy lately, mostly laden with offers for low-cost insurance, criminal justice education, GPS systems, and ads for Walmart- most of them in Spanish! But this one... this one was special. read on...


I must let you in on the real facts about your delayed payment, I was an ex-member of the FBI on local and foreign debt attached to the World Bank office in Washington, DC, USA. Prior to my resignation, I discovered the unholy activities of my colleagues during a private investigation. I suspected some kind of foul play in their discharge of duties which they never informed me due to my Christian believes. I am very concern now over their incessant chargers on you and the fruitless dealings with my ex-boss.

I discovered that my boss connived with some top officials of the World Bank to divert funds approved to settle Lottery Winners, International Contractors and Inheritance payment. The World Bank (WB) has already given approval for your payment while my colleagues deliberately withheld your payment file. They incessantly ask you for fees from different quarters in order to justify their selfish interest. I wonder why you haven’t notice their games.

Well, I just hope you believe me, if not, your fund is gone. Your fund has been authorized to be paid to you from a WB financial consultant either in the UK or US, approved with a World Bank Key Tested Reference/Claim Code Numbers, which was supposed to have been issued to you, but my colleagues decided to divert your attention by telling you of something to do with one committee or the other especially in Holland (Amsterdam), Spain, UAE or in Africa and they make you believe that the fund will be transferred into your account – FALSE!

The reason why I am giving you this information is because of the fact that I was aware of it and my doctrine does not permit me to withhold such information. The only help you can get from me now, is the actual link to your payment, please do not give this information to my boss as he may influence a total blockage of your payment, so you have to be very careful with this information.

Upon your response, I shall give you all you needed to contact the World Bank payment centers in UK or US.

Yours truly,
Ms.Tracy Sanson

ebay auction ending at midnight tomorrow

heya! b and I decided to set up an ebay shop for everbrite. I posted the first item, the Gumball Engagement Ring by O-Live. The auction ends tomorrow at midnight, and the opening bid is just $10.

O-Live was one of the first designers we picked up when launching the everbrite site in October of 2009. We found her magical wonderland of a booth (minus Olive- she came and found us) at the Gift Show (giant trade show in case you don't know) earlier that year. One of the many lessons we've learned being shop keepers over the past couple of years is that just because you love a product, doesn't mean it's necessarily going to sell. So! here were are with some great, perfect, never used items that we are going to be auctioning off on ebay. stay tuned for more and more goodies as we get the hang of being ebay sellers.

in the mean time, go ahead and bid on O-Live's ring! It's completely hand made by the genius Olive herself, from colorful charms encased in a lexan bubble, surrounded by crocheted vinyl cord, and finished with sterling silver wire. beauty!

John Stein's Grampa

New in the Everbrite Mercantile Gallery: John Stein bring us his altered universe, where grampas and teddy bears wage war with cowboys and dinosaurs. In addition to John's signature ballpoint pen panoramas, the show includes 3-d printed sculptures, paintings, and a large, digitally-printed banner. Miniature cast resin bears and posters are available as souvenirs.

The art shows are lining up fast and furious- we're nearly scheduled through the end of the year. What really excites me is that we are able to hold onto pieces from each show, to add to the store's collection. We currently have one of Greg Barnett's large quilts, a painting on board, a smattering of his 8 1/2 x 11 drawings, and two plush toys. Kegan Fisher was kind enough to loan us No Way Out But In, and L.A. Sunset. And of course we still have a smattering of Jenna Kole's origami ornaments on hand.

Stay tuned for more art and make it out to Red Hook this weekend if you can.
