Glorious Excess (Born) at JANM -Ian Dury

more on glorious excess…

from Wikipedia:


“Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll” is a song and single by Ian Dury. It was originally released on the 1977 Stiff Records single BUY 17 “Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll” with “Razzle In My Pocket” as the B-side. on August 26th. The song was released under the name Ian Dury. Only two members of Ian Dury and the Blockheads appear on the record, the song’s co-writer Chas Jankel and saxophonist Davey Payne.

The single did not chart, selling only around 19,000 copies (a small amount for a single in 1977) but won critical acclaim. A factor of this poor sales could be Stiff Record’s singles deletion policy designed to promote initial sales and as such, chart success. The original single was deleted after only two months.

Released as it was in the height of the Punk rock scandal the song was misinterpreted (as it is often is to this day) as a song about excess as its title and chorus would suggest and was banned by the BBC. However, Dury maintained that the song was not a punk anthem. He said he was trying to suggest that there was more to life than sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll or a 9-to-5 existence (such as in his track-by-track comments in the sleeve-notes of Repertoire Record’s Reasons To Be Cheerful: The Best Of Ian Dury & The Blockheads compilation). The verses themselves are somewhat riddle-like at times though always suggesting an alternative lifestyle:

Here’s a little bit of advice, you’re quite welcome it is free Don’t do nothing that is cut-price you’ll know what they’ll make you be They will try their tricky device, trap you with the ordinary Get your teeth into a small slice of the cake of liberty

from wikipedia:


Memento mori is a Latin phrase that may be translated as “Remember that you are mortal,” “Remember you will die,” “Remember that you must die,” or “Remember your death”. It names a genre of artistic creations that vary widely from one another, but which all share the same purpose, which is to remind people of their own mortality.

In ancient Rome, the phrase is said to have been used on the occasions when a Roman general was parading through the streets of Rome during the victory celebration known as a triumph. Standing behind the victorious general was a slave, and he had the task of reminding the general that, though he was up on the peak today, tomorrow was another day. The servant did this by telling the general that he should remember that he was mortal: “Memento mori.” It is also possible that the servant said, rather, “Respice post te! Hominem te esse memento!”: “Look behind you! Remember that you are but a man!”, as noted in Tertullian in his Apologeticus.[1]

The concept, in the art of classical antiquity, was more frequently embodied in the phrase carpe diem, or “seize the day.” This carries echoes of the admonishment to “eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die”, the language of which originates in Isaiah 22:13: “But look! you feast and celebrate, you slaughter oxen and butcher sheep, You eat meat and drink wine: ‘Eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!’”[2] The thought appears elsewhere in Roman literature: Horace’s Odes include the well known line Nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero pulsanda tellus. (Now is the time to drink, now the time to dance footloose upon the earth.) Horace goes on to explain that now is the time because there will be no drinking or dancing in the afterlife, a classic example of the carpe diem theme. This theme is repeated in the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, stanza XXXV: ’...”While you live, / “Drink!—for, once dead, you never shall return.”’ And the popular theme of “Timor mortis conturbat me, quilla inferno nulla est redemptio”...The Fear Of Death Torments Me Because In Hell There Is No Redemption.

Memento mori
Материал из Википедии — свободной энциклопедии

Филипп де Шампень: Лотос, череп и песочные часы — три символа бренности бытия

Memento mori (лат.  «помни, что умрёшь»; также используется форма memento mortis — «помни о смерти») — выражение, ставшее крылатой фразой.

В Древнем Риме эта фраза произносилась во время триумфального шествия римских полководцев, возвращающихся с победой. За спиной военачальника ставили раба, который был обязан периодически напоминать триумфатору, что несмотря на свою славу, тот остаётся смертным. Возможно, настоящая фраза звучала как: Respice post te! Hominem te memento! («Обернись! Помни, что ты — человек!») (глава 33 «Апологетики» Тертуллиана).

В русском языке после эпизода в фильме «Кавказская пленница» фраза иногда шуточно обыгрывается как «моментально в море».

Иногда выражение ошибочно записывают как memento more, что изменяет его смысл на «помни обычай».

Mike Shinoda Art Show: Glorious Excess (Born)

Mike Shinoda is excited to announce his latest exhibition of artwork, titled Glorious Excess (Born) this July in Los Angeles!

Mike will be showing nine all-new pieces that blend his personal experiences in the spotlight with pop commentary and classical vanitas influences.

Special Glorious Excess programs will be available for purchase.

i found this on

Everyone in this world wants to famous. By everybody I mean you too. Trust me you don’t have to spend a penny or kill somebody to become famous. Don’t be famous because you want to be, become famous for some good reasons. Do not do something that is harmful to you or others such as jumping from a multistoried building just to get your fifteen minutes of fame. Being famous is all about grabbing the attraction and attention of the media and people for something positive yet spectacular and unique…

Secret Of Success!

Do you want to be one among those most hot and happening people? Are you craving for fame and success? Are you in search of glory? Don’t stop yourself from thinking. Dream big and you are just some miles away from success. Be positive and think that you are the best and prove yourself.

With the right kind of attitude and talent you will definitely be famous among your family and friends, but there is a long way to go. Attitude and confidence can only help you for some extent but if you really want to pull yourself out of your comfort zone and stand in front of the world, then you need to be more fashionable and should always have that borne to be a hero material in you.

Positive Attitude

To be one among the present stars, you should be strong enough to face the hard side of the world. The grass is not always greener on the other side. Stay close to your family, friends and the people who admire you the most as they are the one who can boost your confidence level and help you reach your goal for certain extent. Go to parties; mingle with crowd and all the page3 activities. Do not criticize yourself as this will lower your confidence level.

Work your way around the big celebs and see how they can change your luck. If your purpose is to get rich and famous then don’t let anything hold you back, this can be a major draw back. Move around and get adjusted with leading producers and directors as they are the one who have the power to make and break superstar…

Modern Vanitas

June 9, 2008

modern works that relate…(click “read more” to see)
POSTED 2 MINUTES AGO BY XENITH Mike do you not think its pretty ironic that the only people who are more likely to be able to afford these peaces of art are in fact what you and many other artists are protesting against within your work? NO ROADS LEFT.COM

MS ANSWER: yes and no…the wealthiest people in the world, who are the only ones who could afford a piece such as FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, are not celebrities of the sort that my works focus on. my series isn’t about the likes of warren buffet. then again, my prices are (not so coincidentally) in the range a red carpet / in touch / E! / OK! celeb might spend. if that happens, we will all be able to enjoy the irony together.

PS, i know about the noroadsleft site. although i doubt we can make it a single, i hope to someday play the song live. it’s really just a matter of my voice being up to it: that song takes a ton out of me, and if my voice isn’t 100% going into it, i can’t make it through properly. plus, it might kill my voice for the songs that follow it…anyway, we’ll see what happens. thanks for the support!

someone i’ve never heard of, but found today: … l-79562067

Vanitas with Disco Ball. by *saturninus on deviantART

and two that many of us are already very familiar with:

mark ryden (from his “blood” series)


and damien hirst. the piece is called FOR THE LOVE OF GOD and is made of real platinum, diamonds, and human teeth. i understand it cost £15,000,000 to £20,000,000 to make, and sold for £50,000,000. that’s almost 100 million US dollars.




many of you have been asking about prints and merchandise for GLORIOUS EXCESS (BORN). it’s not completely sorted out yet, but what i know so far is the following. as usual, all proceeds go to the michael k. shinoda endowed scholarship at art center college of design…

(1.) BOOK/PROGRAM there will be a small book / program, which will feature all the art from the show. it is likely to be 8.5x11” or smaller (we’re designing it now), on a high quality paper stock, perfect bound. full color, with photos detailing the creation of the pieces and some of my inspirations behind them. the book will likely be between $15 and $25.

(2.) SKATE DECKS there will be 3 skate deck designs, featuring art from the show. they are amazing 4 color skateboard decks. you can skate on them or hang them on your wall…they will be sold for between $50 and $75 each. like last time, there will probably be a discount price if you buy all three.

(3.) PRINTS at the last show, my prints were on stretched canvas, which looked more like a painting and were a little more expensive. this time, i’m doing prints on high quality art paper. these are also very nice, and will look amazing in a frame. price is yet undetermined, but will be more affordable: they will probably not exceed $150.

we may possibly add a t-shirt. keep in mind that all items are highly limited, so keep an eye here on and act fast once they show up.

FYI, there are still books and prints from he last show in the store if you’re interested.

HOW DO I BUY THEM? i am planning to offer these three things at the show and here at in about one month.

if you are interested in buying an original painting: the only way to do that is at the show.

sent to me by the phoenix...

On April 15, 2008 in San Francisco, Green Works brought together an English

reverse graffiti artist and a critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker, to create an environmentally friendly work of art and a film about a philosophy of clean.

San Francisco’s Broadway tunnel is a highly traveled thoroughfare in the heart of the city. Over 20,000 cars, trucks, and motorized vehicles pass through it per day. Its walls are caked with dirt and soot, and lined with patches of paint covered graffiti from days gone by. It set the perfect canvas to create a beautiful work of art showcasing the talents of reverse graffiti artist “Moose”, and the power of Green Works plant based cleaner.
