OBEY THE GIANT

OTGWe’re very proud & extremely happy to announce that Learned Vices is one of the Executive Producers of the newly released “OBEY THE GIANT” film!!! (Whaaa?!? Yup, we can’t believe it either, but it’s true…still don’t believe us, check the credits. Boom.) We couldn’t be more honored & more exciTED to be a part of our homie Julian Marshall’s latest film…

OBEY THE GIANT, directed by Julian Marshall, is the first narrative film about the early life of Shepard Fairey and the origin of his OBEY GIANT street art campaign.

Based on the true story of Shepard Fairey’s first act of street art, OBEY THE GIANT tells the story of a young skate punk challenging a big-city mayor and the powers-that-be at art school.

Frustrated by his inability to gain respect within the confines of art school Shepard sets out to gain notoriety and acclaim by targeting the most powerful man in Providence, former Mayor Buddy Cianci. Risking expulsion and jail time Shepard plasters Andre the Giant’s face over the image of Cianci on a campaign billboard. As word of Shepard’s prank gets out, Shepard learns that art is a weapon and attention is both a blessing and a curse.

Congrats, Julian!!!! Please enjoy & share…

Theo’s Things That You Maybe Missed

Happy HUMP day, f*ck*rs! Sorry for the lack of updates last week. Hope you all had as much fun as I did these last 2 weekends. MDW was especially awesome! My friends & I were able to meet Donald Glover a/k/a Childish Gambino before his show at The Cosmopolitan pool. (Thanks again, Katya!) He’s a hella nice dude & he absolutely KILLED IT on stage later…Camp Gambino was a blast! & I guess he was pretty stoked about the million dollar bill that I gave to him (#BLACKFACES), because he posted a pic of it on Instagram the next day…Sofa King AWESOME! Well, I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week & have a great weekend! Here’s some things that you maybe missed over the last week or so…

  • Shepard Fairey paid tribute to the late great hip-hop legend who went by the name of MCA with a couple billboards in LA. RESPECT! (OBEY)
  • Be sure to watch & support our BFF @HeatherBilyeu on the season 5 premiere of Million Dollar Listing LA tonight…BIG NEWS?!? (BRAVO)
  • Wait, huh? Childish Gambino + Beck? YES, PLEASE!!! I can’t wait for Bino’s new mixtape…Wu-Tang + Bino? Coming soon! (IAMDONALD)
  • I really want to meet the trillionaire Ebayer who paid $90K for a pair of Nike Air Yeezys 2. I wish I had a pair, but c’mon, really?!? (EBAY)
  • You REALLY are what you eat, so when what you eat (chicken) eats ARSENIC, well, then that’s probably not good for you either. (GOOD)
  • So the “War on (illegal) Drugs” failed & helped create a market for synthetic “legal” drugs made by mad/rich scientists? Why not! (WIRED)
  • Someone already recreated the Throne of Hawkthorne game from Community’s Digital Estate Planning episode…WOW! (REDDIT)

I’m so happy it’s Friday & I’m so happy for the future…it’s going to be so much fun. Not the band named fun., just FUN, but they’re awesome too by the way, I loved The Format & love fun. as well (the band this time). Haha! Anyway, hope everyone has a FUN weekend (NBA Playoffs!) & here’s some things that you maybe missed over the last 2 weeks…

  • Julian Marshall needs your help to finish his AWESOME short narrative film, Obey The Giant, about the origins of Obey & Shepard Fairey. Hella exciTED!(KICKSTARTER)

  • Have you met Iceberg, maybe the world’s only all-white (albino) killer whale, yet? “Hey Iceberg, nice to meet you. Say hi to your mutha for me!” (NATGEO)
  • Zappos’ 38 y.o. CEO, Tony Hsieh, has a ton of cool plans for Downtown LV & he’s using some of his own cash to make them a reality. Thanks, man! (TIME)
  • A Havard paper says that legalizing marijuana could save the US gov’t about $14 BILLION/year! <;300 economists concur. Just do it already! (HUFFPO)
  • Peeps at CinemaCon in LV said Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit (shot at 48 frames/sec, instead of normal 24FPS) looks weird & “like TV”. Shitty. (THR)
