The Artist Picks His Favorite Paintings

BALL OF FIRE (18×15 inches, watercolor; 2008)

 

 

” Guy Harvey is many things, nearly all of them related to the ocean and his love and appreciation of that environment. Dr. Harvey is best known internationally as a prolific and talented painter of marine animals, his interest in marine biology (in which he holds a PhD) and his countless hours of underwater observation leading to an obsession with accurate detail. By 1988, Harvey was widely recognized as a top game-fish artist in the world.

  Harvey is also one of the staunchest advocates of marine conservation on the planet. In 1999, the artist/diver/cinematographer/explorer collaborated with Nova Southeastern University in Dania Beach, Florida, to establish the Guy Harvey Research Institute, one of only a handful of private organizations dedicated exclusively to the science-based conservation of marine fish populations and biodiversity.

  You can read more about Harvey here.

  Sport Fishing is honored to share with our audience this exclusive gallery, not merely of 50 Guy Harvey  paintings, but the 50 favorites picked by the artist, with a  comment from him on each. It’s also worth mentioning that a portion of all Harvey’s art sales go to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. Reproductions are available for most images here or call 954-581-0073. “

John Mayall: Jammin’ With The Blues Greats 1982

 

 

 

Published on Jun 30, 2013

” One hot night in June 1982 at New Jersey’s Capitol Theater, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, featuring Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones) on lead guitar, John McVie (Fleetwood Mac) on bass, and Colin Allen (of Rod Stewart’s band) on drums, paid homage to and were joined by five blues immortals: Albert King, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and the 83-year-old Sippie Wallace. Each of the blues greats were backed by the Bluesbreakers, resulting in some amazing musical moments. Awesome is the only word to describe the guitar jams among Albert King, Buddy Guy, and Mick Taylor. “

Jeff Beck & Imelda May – Rock n Roll

 

 

 

 

Published on June 30, 2013

” One of the most influential and charismatic in the history of rock guitarists, mainly for his seminal work with the Yardbirds and diversity of styles.

  After passing through the Wimbledon School of Art Art in London, Jeff Beck (born June 24, 1944 Surrey) began professionally in the world of music with a band called The Tridents. His big break came when Eric Clapton left the Yardbirds in 1965 to understand that they moved away from blues and welcomed more commercial sounds.

  Beck’s entry into the group opened new perspectives for English training with his imaginative style, making the band pioneers of psychedelic pop-rock and mirrors the American garage with his innovations in distortion and feedback.

  Also Beck decided to quit the Yardbirds in 1966 to form a new group that called Jeff Beck Group, set in the future were Faces, Rod Stewart and Ron Wood, with keyboardist Nicky Hopkins and drummer Aynsley Dunbar, who was replaced by Mickey Waller.

  Before that and Mickey Most as a producer, Jeff had recorded a simple pop that had been well received in the British charts, “Hi-Ho Silver Lining”.

  With the Jeff Beck Group, Surrey guitarist adopted a rocky and powerful sound based on the blues-rock.
Their live performances were enthusiastically received. Alongside them, the band released two essential Lps, “Truth” (1968) and “Beck-Ola” (1969), both produced by Mickey Most. In 1970 the group ceased to exist.
After suffering a car accident which prevented the creation of supertrío Beck, Bogert and Appice with Vanilla Fudge members Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice, Jeff Jeff Beck Group reformed with new components, recruiting the singer Bobby Tench, bassist Clive Chapman, drummer Cozy Powell and keyboardist Max Middleton.

” Rough and Ready” (1971) was the first Lp of the new project, a job that failed to sell too in Britain despite its attractive mix of jazz, funk and rock.
“The Jeff Beck Group” (1972), an album produced by Steve Cropper, also failed to draw the attention of press and public, which led to the final Beck Appice and Bogert binding, who had begun prior experience with Cactus.

  The trio also failed to reach valid conclusions and another interesting project of Jeff finished collapsing.
“Blow by blow” (1975), a large Lp blues-rock with jazz scraps produced by George Martin , like “Wired” (1976), were two important works of Jeff Beck fully recovered.
After a live album recorded in 1977 with Jan Hammer, Beck published works very occasionally, without returning to the studies to 80s.

  His new album, co-produced with Ken Scot, took the title of “There and Back” (1980), an album continued by Lps as “Flash” (1985) album produced by Nile Rodgers and Arthur Baker he returned to associate with Rod Stewart on a version of “People get ready” and “Jeff Beck’s Guitar Shop” (1989), one of the best jobs in the last stage of his career that afforded him a Grammy Award.

  In the years 90 published by Jed Leiber’s soundtrack telefilm “Frankie’s House” (1992), a tribute album to Gene Vincent called “Crazy Legs” (1992) and “Who else” (1999), Lp in which Beck showed his ability to accommodate current sound times.

  Also the legendary guitar this great amateur automotive appeared in collaborations with various artists like Donovan, Tina Turner, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart and Roger Waters, offering his expertise in the six strings Service of hard rock, blues, psychedelia, jazz or pop-rock. “

Some notes that came with the show:

  Johnny Winter Timeline 1977
After playing “Rock and Roll” for several years, in 1977 Johnny Winter returns to his musical roots: playing the real blues. His stage shows become calmer; he ceased to jump around from one side of the stage to the other; while playing rough guitar riffs. Now he remains seated, close to the mike. For recordings he uses the notorious all metallic self-made John Velano guitar with the thin silver neck.

  Johnny Winter produces the grammy award winning album “Hard again” with Muddy Waters which launches the comeback of Muddy

  Muddy Waters : during an interview on Johnny:

  Tim: Talking about collaborations, I was curious how you got together with Johnny Winter.

  Muddy: I met Johnny in Austin, Texas. He opened the show for me back in ’60, I think.

  Tim: And how did his producing your Blue Sky album come to be?

  Muddy: He was on it. He was with CBS, and CBS distributed Blue Sky, and the guy that owned Blue Sky was Johnny’s personal man all the way through, Steve Paul. So we was looking for a record contract, and when my manager went to CBS, they said, “Well, we got a good place to put him.” And they put me on Blue Sky with Johnny. ‘Cause see, Johnny, he loves me, because he learned a lot of things under my music. He likes me personally as a friend. So when he heard that we wanted him to produce the record and all — Man, that was just what he wanted. It’s like a little family thing we got. So we did good over there. This is the fourth one out, and we done won three Grammy awards. Every one we put out, we win. This might be the one this time, who knows.

  Tim: That’s kind of a strange partnership. He’s a relative newcomer to the blues compared to you.

  Muddy: Yeah, definitely. He’s a young boy, compared to me. But he learned under my records, and people like me. But he mostly studied my records when he was a kid coming up. And a lot of more of ‘em did too.

  Tim: And he’s helped to bring the blues to a bigger population, wouldn’t you say?

  Muddy: Sure. Definitely.

  Muddy about Johnny : ‘Cause see, Johnny, he loves me, because he learned a lot of things under my music. He likes me personally as a friend. So when he heard that we wanted him to produce the record and all — Man, that was just what he wanted. It’s like a little family thing we got. So we did good over there. This is the fourth one out, and we done won three Grammy awards. Every one we put out, we win. This might be the one this time, who knows.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Can Now Make GIFs Directly From YouTube

 

 

 

 

” If you love making GIFs (and really, who doesn’t?) today is a happy day for you. YouTube has finally heeded the call of millions of users and quietly added a GIF-creator tool to some of its videos (for example, anything uploaded by the PBS Idea Channel). The share button (which previously only had share, embed, and email as options) now includes an extra feature: GIF. 

  It’s a pretty bare-bones affair: tap share, set your start and end points, add any captions if you’d like, and click “create” — YouTube will host the GIF itself. The clip can only be a maximum of 5 seconds long, which makes it somewhat of a crude tool for GIF-makers, but it will help keep file size small. The ease with which one churn out GIFs and add meme-like bottom and top text will certainly be enough for the casual user and perhaps spur on a Mememageddon the likes of which we haven’t seen since 2011. The future is now. “

Antelope Canyon Photo Sells For Record $6.5M

 

LIK USA Peter Lik's Phantom

 

 

 

” The world’s most expensive photo depicts Arizona’s Antelope Canyon, near Page on the Navajo Reservation.

  Landscape Photographer Peter Lik sold his print, titled “Phantom,” for $6.5 million to a private collector in November.

  The black-and-white photo depicts an underground cavern inside Arizona’s Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon formed as rainwater eroded the stone into narrow passageways.

  The canyon, first opened to the public in 1997, attracts photographers and sightseers to marvel at its uniquely smooth, flowing corridors and arches, Navajo Nation parks officials said.”

Neda Suzanne Sullivan

  Neda Suzanne Sullivan of 14 Cove Road, Westerly, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, May 21, 2011. Born in San Francisco, on Oct. 19, 2004, she was 6 years old.

  A beautiful and preternaturally delightful child, Neda was a happy, energetic little girl with a playful sparkle in her eye, a mischievous crooked smile and a gentle warmth and tenderness that melted the hearts of everyone with whom she came in contact.

  She was much beloved throughout the community and within the Westerly School system, particularly in the special education department and at the Bradford School, where she was something of a celebrity.
She is survived by her parents, Mark Sullivan Jr. and Stanislava Sullivan, of Westerly; her big brother/hero, Joseph; her grandparents, Mark and Suzanne Sullivan Sr., of Westerly, and Gancho and Nedka Ganev, of Gabrovo, Bulgaria; her aunts and uncles, Dave and Maura Sullivan of Rocky Hill, Conn., Leeann and Michael Keady of Medfield, Mass., and Hristo and Aneta Ganev of Berlin, Germany; her cousins, MJ, Mary, Mathew, Mack, Kate, Callie and Marie; and a multitude of children, thoughtful families and dedicated caregivers throughout southern New England and all over the world.

  Neda’s family will host a waking and memorial service in her memory from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, at the Buckler-Johnston Funeral Home, 121 Main St., Westerly, followed by a family-friendly reception, to which Neda’s little friends are cordially invited, at St. Clare Community Center, on Crandall Avenue in Misquamicut.

   In lieu of flowers, please donate to the “Neda Fund” at 224 Post Road, #181, Westerly, RI, 02891.
Proceeds will be used to help defray the costs of Neda’s final arrangements, and to establish a foundation in her name to assist families of children with developmental disorders like those with which Neda struggled so valiantly to the end. “

Street Artist Sabo Blasts Lena Dunham, Bill Clinton In Fake Rolling Stone Covers

 

 

 

” The controversial artist papered L.A. early Monday with posters featuring a photo of Dunham and the headline “Rape Fantasies and Why We Perpetuate Them”

  Los Angeles’ most controversial street artist, Sabo, has struck again — this time papering the Westside early Monday with posters depicting a fake Rolling Stone cover featuring a Lena Dunham photo and the headline “Rape Fantasies and Why We Perpetuate Them.”

  The poster also includes headlines that dig at Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby and Rolling Stone magazine, which recently retracted a gang-rape account at a University of Virginia fraternity house.

  In an email, Sabo told The Hollywood Reporter: “Remember (Dunham) accused a Republican of raping her in college, and that story is falling apart. Then you have the politics of Hollywood with her, Cosby, the Rolling Stone article that is being detracted. Last but not least, our beloved Bubba Clinton’s blast from the past and the double standard of why Rolling Stone didn’t run with his rape allegations but they ran with the UVA false story.” “

 

The Hollywood Reporter has more and be sure to check out more of Sabo’s work on his website here.
