Movember Jax Party @ TSI 11/28

0 comments


From the Jacksonville Beardsmith Society:

To finish up an awesome Movember for the Jacksonville Beardsmith Society, we’re hosting a Movember Party this Saturday, November 28th at Club TSI! It’s sure to be a fantastic event. There will be an awards ceremony commemorating those who participated this month. We’re also going to have donation boxes to help raise more money and a photo booth taking pictures provided by the very talented Jensen Hande.

There will also be $2 Paulaner Hefe Weizen for anybody wearing a mustache (real or fake.)

Awards will be given for the following categories:

The Lame Mo
This is an Encouragement Award for the Mo Bro who has tried his best, yet is still a wispy effort.

Best Mo in Character
As the name suggests we are looking for the Mo that matches the character/costume.

Best Mo Bro with his Mo Sista
This is awarded to the male/female duo with a great costume character/combination, similar to the Best Mo in Character but with the inclusion of a Mo Sista.

Best Team Mo
Safety in numbers with this category.

The Ultimate Mo
This is awarded to the Mo Bro purely on the grooming and styling of his Mo.

Miss Movember
The ultimate prize awarded to the stand out Mo Sista who has supported and encouraged Mo Bros.

Man of Movember
This is the ultimate prize awarded to the stand out Mo Bro who has the best Mo, costume and attitude. The Man of Movember is to be chosen from the finalists of the other categories. He has a true appreciation for the Mo and wears it proud!

Miss Movember and Man of Movember will be awarded sashes to wear proudly. Other prizes include mustache-themed gifts, art, books, and more. Anyone can attend the event and enjoy drink discounts, but only Movember participants can compete for titles and prizes.

Chelleby's Urban Angels showcased on Metrojacksonville.com

0 comments


Chelleby's work has fairly obvious roots in fashion photography, but her subject matter and central themes are hardly the empty headed glamour shots and moody lighting or melodramatic telenovella oevre. Indeed, her models are young, fashionable, beefy, pouty and gorgeous, but in her photography they are imbued with something more than just their obvious physical charms. Instead she concentrates on social issues with a whimsical and light hand, presenting images that are both attractive and thought provoking.... [Read full article on Metrojacksonville.com]

Chelleby is currently looking for benefactors, gallery owners, and models, as she pushes projects to the next level. You can contact her during the artist hours between 12 - 12. 904-517-0405

Whacksonville Practical joke

8 comments
I will stay true to the style of Jaxscene and just show you the pics and video, well maybe with a short background. Every week Whacksonville copies our Things to Do, calls it Friday Fun Factory and writes pretty bashing comments about the events. They say it's too help the city stop being lame, or something to that nature. I'm not going to get into it, this is more or less playing a joke on them. Last night I added a few fake events to the Things to Do list, things I thought might be outrageous but believable. I even made flyers.

This is what was posted this morning: (Fake events are in red)

    My Beautiful Downtown Experience

    12 comments
    You might have heard last month stories of downtown property owners offering artists spaces in some vacant spots around downtown. So recently I had an opportunity to move into one of these artist spaces downtown with eight others. Its the 6200 square ft, second floor Hemming Plaza space above Hemming Jewelers. Out of the twenty days we have had the space I've spent at least fifteen of those nights in the space working. The vibe downtown and being able to have a place to work downtown is an amazing feeling. Looking back at the first time I was there, I knew being there in the daytime was going to present a problem. Finding parking in the area is difficult due to the heavy traffic around Hemming Plaza. The parking is also limited to one hour. I screen print, so printing a series of posters and moving my car every hour is just not going to work. The first time I go to move my car the ink would dry in the screen and be unusable. I began to think about the option of biking from my place in Springfield and it's something I plan on doing in the future. I thought about getting a spot in a garage but most places average about 2/3 the price of my rent. Being there for not even twenty days of signing a lease, I should have read the fine print. Not the one on the lease but the one of committing to being downtown.

    I recently have been carpooling with my fiance to work, she works in the Modis building and has a spot in a parking garage. This is convenient if I need to drive somewhere and she lets me borrow the car. Granted it is six blocks away but the walk is nice and is easier than running up and down and moving around every hour.




    So being there I'm thinking even with the garage space this is a little stressful, and how I feel sorry for the other eight artist renting with me who don't have the pleasure of a free garage space. Then last Monday comes along...I have to say I have been driving for over fifteen years and I know how to read all traffic signs and I've been an American all my life. We have a sign near our front door that reads that it is a freight loading zone with 1 hour parking only. I'm thinking this means if I need to move something into my space it is okay to park there. I move most of my stuff in at night so I have never really used this parking space except one day where I ran back in forth up the elevator hurrying to not use the space for longer than 1 hour. So Monday I had a couple paintings I was bringing up for Art Walk. I parked in the freight loading zone to bring up my paintings and supplies, which took a few trips, and when I came down fifteen minutes later, I noticed that I had been ticketed. First thing I do is look for the parking enforcer, I'm so upset. I want to tell him he gave me a ticket by mistake. I look for him for an hour but I couldn't find him it. So I went home to do some research on coj.net, and the website states:

    Q. Who can use Freight Loading Zones?

    A. Designated Freight Loading Zones (FLZ) are for the expeditious loading and unloading of freight. Commercial vehicles properly displaying company logos in the standardized format or individuals purchasing a FLZ permit from the Public Parking division may utilize a space for the one-hour limit as posted. Certain circumstances may arise that require someone without proper signage or documentation to park in a loading zone. If this occurs, the time must be brief as in a "dropping off or picking up" situation.


    A brief dropping off or picking up situation. I think I fit in that category. So I called the number on the bottom of the citation to talk to someone about the issue. The second I tell him my reason for calling he gets standoffish. I have this feeling he gets called a lot. He tells me he can't do anything and if I want to dispute it I can go to court. I get pissed and tell him that would take so much time it's easier to just pay the $25 ticket. I tell him that the telephone call was pointless and I don't even know why he has a job to answer a phone to explain to me what's already on the ticket.


    I made these because I was so upset I couldn't work. Image is not against Downtown Vision, just referencing Downtown's new recognizable icon.

    I know Jacksonville makes money off these citations. I know there is a such thing as parking illegally. Most people do not own a parking meter code violation book. I think where I parked was misleading, even the website contradicts why I got this ticket.



    I honestly feel like I was doing something good for the city. The reason I'm in that space is to help get people downtown. I got a ticket moving artwork in so I can participate in Art Walk and get people downtown. I feel like the city has a system built so they can reach in my pocket to take out some money and make me jump through hoops to get it back. The citation has since created a different outlook on downtown for me. I feel like I got mugged by the people I'm trying to help. I honestly have seen a glimpse into why downtown is the way it is and seen how it is impossible for a small business owner or even someone wanting to shop to not feel the pressure of the parking situation. I couldn't imagine living in downtown with the expensive rent and the added expense of a parking garage. Then having family and friends over and having to deal with the possibility of them getting ticketed. Because eventually they will get ticketed, guaranteed.

    I decided that I was going to just pay the citation, not because I think I'm guilty, I just feel disgusted I'm even in this situation. I want to get it over and I don't want to go to court. The city has it set up to where if you want to dispute it you have go down to their office, you can't call or set a court date online. So you have to go down there, then set a court date for another day. For most people thats 2 days away from work.

    I am also torn on what it is I'm working on by being in downtown. I don't like the idea of encouraging someone in something that will eventually lead to disappointment. Would you want to own a business if you had to move your car every hour or pay a monthly payment in a garage for you and your employees. Would you want to live in a place your friends and family had to pay a fee to visit you. A place where you couldn't watch a movie without them having to move their vehicle around the block half way through it. Imagine a mother not having money for a parking garage space and having to move all day with a baby. It almost seems like a way to keep people with little income out of Downtown.
