3rd Annual Drawing for Life Marathon, Saturday, March 6

0 comments


FaceBook event Description:
Fighting cancer is a team effort and the impact we can make together is much greater than what any of us could do alone. All of the artists on our team wish to use their abilities to help those whose lives have been affected by cancer.

At the 3rd Annual Drawing for Life Marathon, our team will draw for 12-hours straight and sell all the artwork created during that day to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save more lives from cancer. Visitors are welcome to watch us draw the entire day and purchase our art as soon as we finish it.

By coming out to our event and making a donation you will be part of a life-changing event that gives everyone in the community a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that takes too many lives...not to mention you get some amazing original artwork by some of Jacksonville's top local artists!

Please support our team by coming to the 3rd Annual Drawing for Life Marathon and purchasing some of our artwork to help create a world where cancer no longer claims another year of anyone's life.

If you would like to make a donation to our team or to an individual team member simply visit this site: main.acsevents.org/goto/logansheroes

Thank you,
Logan Zawacki

JaxScene Redesign

3 comments

Well it's just about done. The major changes are finished but you will see smaller ones coming soon. RSS button, font color and size changes, ad space to pay contributors, and more. The need to redesign was to reduce the side gutter clutter and bring an aesthetic focus to media. The ideas that I was kicking around for the look was mainly how Zines look. And still, I am going to tweak it to get closer to that goal. Feel free to comment. The one drawback is those that still use lower monitor resolutions (1024 width and down) won't see the new design correctly. I am still working on that.

These mixes always seem to happen in the middle of the night. I usually call them practice, but some people seem to think otherwise; so I'm putting them up online and hopefully, you'll dig them, too. Enjoy.

Electric President’s "The Violent Blue" Out Tomorrow

0 comments


Taken from the Fake Four Inc. post:
Electric President’s third album The Violent Blue will be out tomorrow, February 23rd! The awesome limited pre-order deals via Circle Into Square are SOLD OUT, but you can order the album by itself tomorrow HERE. It will also be available on iTunes and in finer music boutiques worldwide.

According to The Fire Note blog review published today, it’s “Electric President’s best album to date” Click here to read the rest of the review!

For more information on Electric President visit radicalface.com.


Electric President MySpace Band Page:
Electric President is made up of Ben Cooper and Alex Kane, both natives of Jacksonville, Florida. Ben is pretty awesome, but Alex is a piece of shit. He's good at bass, though, so Ben puts up with him for that and that alone. Both of them are very fond of pizza, but Ben's stomach is easily twice the size of Alex's and he can eat much more of it per sitting. Alex also drinks Diet Coke due to having diabetes since he was a little kid, which is embarrassing (the Diet Coke … not the having diabetes part). Ben must have the patience of a Saint to put up with that guy.

They've recorded two albums and one EP under the Electric President moniker, all released under the German imprint Morr Music, with a third to be released this in early 2010, set to be released by Fake Four Inc. They've had songs on television (two on the OC, which was canceled shortly after – coincidence?) and in various short films. They both came from pretty DIY ideas of making music, and as such record all their music in a tool shed and a bedroom with a handful of recording gear. Apparently, this gives them cred.

They hope to one day be incredibly rich from their music so they can buy an airplane and set it on fire without ever using it. To burn that sucker simply because they can, and to stand by and drink expensive wine and laugh manically until it explodes.

JaxScene yard sales

0 comments
I want to start featuring yard sales from anyone, to be listed along with that day's things to do. The idea came from seeing so many signs pop up as people are moving into or away from places. It's also a good idea because it's that time to save money and pick up some stuff for cheap.

If you want your yard sale listed email me at jaxscenedavid@gmail.com or feel free to comment on the day of things to do.

I will most likely limit it to the areas of Downtown/Springfield/Riverside/Avondale/San Marco/Murray Hill.
