Should we form a separatist society and destroy all clocks?

Last week we asked if we should all move to Stockton. And maybe we should. Or maybe we should form a separatist society, destroy all clocks and live in a dome.

Hiroshima-based artist (and longtime pal of Mission Mission) Allie Seekely explores this option in “Clockfree Persondome,” a new story/poem. Here’s an excerpt:

day 0 of the dome
initiation ceremony
come on down everybody

hammers, we brought
saws, we brought
knives, we brought
guns, we brought

hands ripped off
faces pierced and sliced
buttons smashed
gears crushed into powder

And it just gets better and better. Read on and prepare to be dazzled. (It’s a PDF, but it’s totally necessary that it be a PDF.)

Zeigeist in 2006 vs. Zeitgeist in 2015

Our own Ariel Dovas has made a startling discovery.

Here’s a drawing he did in 2006:

A Sutro Tower for your living room


Finally, a miniaturized version of our favorite local landmark for your household! And it doubles as a shelf and coat rack, just in time for scarf weather. It’s called the Sutro Tower Rack, it’s currently raising funds via Kickstarter, and designer Timothy Seward wrote in to tell us all about it:

While living in the edge of the mission (20th+Potrero) I looked up and saw Sutro Tower everyday. I decided to take my street art skills and put them to the design test. I wanted to blend the beautiful mid-century designs of the past and incorporate my street art flavor. It may be hard to identify the street in this furniture piece, but the playfulness of the soft lines and pop colors are definitely inspired by my murals and my good friend Ian Ross‘ murals around SF.

Here’s a gif of the Sutro Tower Rack in action:

And here’s one of all of the delightful colors it’ll come in:

Enticed? Head on over to the Sutro Tower Rack Kickstarter page and pledge. Want to see it in person first? Timothy will be showing the rack at the Urban Epicurean Festival at Fort Mason this weekend, where you can also snag yourself an on-trend Sutro Tower lapel pin.

P.S. Here are a bunch of our posts on Sutro Tower over the years…

Check out this colorful new mural by the Fog Bender!

Here’s what he has to say about it:

the intersection of getting paid to do what you love for people who appreciate it is the pinnacle of purpose.  now to make a career out of it.

Blam! Hit him up!!

Street art outside Pal’s Take Away lamenting the loss of Pal’s Take Away, or the loss of everything eventually?

Or maybe somebody’s excited for Nick Lowe’s performance at Hardly Strictly this Sunday?

Last chance to score one of Helen Tseng’s wolfy feminist bike posters!

Helen designed these for ARTCRANK last year, and it’s about to go out of print (probably in advance of Helen’s new design for this year’s ARTCRANK), so get it while you still can.
