2300 Jackson Street

In honour of Michael Jackson I went to visit his childhood home in Gary, Indiana. Terri Stevens and several other family members of mine also came along with me. It was definitely a somber experience. There was a gentle and cool rain that was present during our entire visit. Many admirers of The Jacksons have placed hundreds of items around the house to memorialize the life of Michael Joseph Jackson.

LaSalle Power Company of Chicago

Justin French & The Levi Strauss & Co. Crew attended the unofficial first night at the LaSalle Power Company. The venue is very nice, three levels of quality. The first level contains both a bar and restaurant (which was not open), VIP area. The Second Level was also a bar/drinking area, while the third level served as a dance area/bar. Overall the venue has a mature, underground element to it that is sure to appeal to the Chicago scene and become a must see place to tourist and natives alike.

Jim Zimpel’s Western @ Hungry Man

img_3684img_3688

Un Peintre de Chicago, Jim Zimpel showcases his new interdisciplinary collection, Western at the Hungry Man art gallery in Wicker Park. Zimpel’s Western is in the form of sculpture as well as video. He explores the long forgotten era of the American fontier culture through ficional media (Hollywood movies to folklore). “These are the products of assumptions and a mass media based understanding of the world. They function in the blurred realm of the seemingly authentic, the regulated imaginary, and the mundane grandiose”.

A part time professor at Columbia College, Zimpel received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute and UIC in 2008.

Remise des Diplômes (Matriculation to Convocation)

Monsieur Français' traveling office. (Roosevelt University)

Monsieur Français' traveling office.

During my Environmental Biology lecture I realised that in one month (May 16, 2009) I will no longer have obligations. The daily schedule that consisted of lectures, seminars and revisions will cease. My plans for after graduation are a bit jangled up. Being accepted into a choice law school would be ideal, however my examination scores have somewhat marred the possibilities of that happening. I would love to apply to several of the Graduate Economic programmes with institutions like the London School of Economics & Political Science, London Metropolitan University, and University College London. So as you can see I’ve got London on the brain. I truly enjoyed it and look forward to studying and residing there.

What do you think?

Any post graduate suggestions are welcome?

Tell me what to do.

Joyeux Anniversaire à vous Justin French

I have now reached the age of twenty-one.  Two years ago this was a day I couldn’t wait to see, now I just feel like an old fool. But in all my old foolishness every so often someone does something that makes me feel the way I did before I hit my teenage years. Lindsey, Thanks for the birthday present. It is the first and (probably my) only present. Presents are not a necessity for a good birthday. But your present actually means something to me.

Egon, a protégé of Gustav Klimt, is most recognised for his extreme artistic exploration of the human form. Schiele displays somewhat jolting images of fetishism, eroticism and mortality that are pornographic in nature.

Eagon’s work is influential to modern artist such as Peter Chung, creator of
Æon Flux (1992)
