Shit is About to Hit the Fan

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

So… it’s been about a year since I’ve written in this blog…

– AND –

nickpolifroni.com has been hacked… so now it’s going to be strictly portfolio. remedy667.com is going to be all font related, because I have no idea how to integrate that into my own design portfolio. Plus, it might get me some feedback on stuff. The main reason that I say shit is gonna hit the fan is because, I’ve gotta update WordPress on this site… I can’t even upload images anymore. I’m probably going to have to make the template a lot more modern as well and integrate it with the other sites (I’d post pictures of the idea, but I can’t until I update.) Anyway, it’s way past time to go to bed… I’ll try to import any past blogs I have in other places and this will become my central blog (again) …just like old times.

JFA – Mad Garden

Monday, July 11th, 2011

All through high school people told me to check out this band. Back then that was a lot easier said then done, it took me until the creation of Napster before I ever heard the sweet sounds of Jodie Fosters Army. This is probably my favorite JFA of the EPs, it just kicks right in with its title track and keeps the same energy throughout (Perhaps with the exception of the Peanuts cover). Either way, this is a classic for fans of early skate-punk and other classic California acts like Stalag 13 and Black Flag.

TRACKS

  1. Mad Garden
  2. Rushing Bull
  3. Charlie Brown
  4. I Want

Intro5pect – Realpolitik!

Monday, July 11th, 2011


I don’t really consider myself to be a fan of Electro, but I’ve always been a loyal fan of punk rock. The first time I heard this was a demo version of the first track, The War at Home, on Myspace a couple years ago. At the time I liked it because I was a Leftover Crack fan, and the track had Stza on it. I’d never really heard the rest of the album until pretty recently though, and I must say… this shit is quality. A lot of the singalong chorus parts really remind me of Anti-Flag, while the overall sound is reminiscent of Atari Teenage Riot or the Refused.

TRACKS

  1. The War At Home
  2. Opressing You
  3. Crooked Lies (Make Baby Jesus Cry)
  4. For Blood, Under God
  5. No Compromises
  6. Nazi White Trash
  7. Goodbye, Goodnight

Not to be Social, Just to be Normal.

Monday, May 17th, 2010

As I always say… it’s been a while since I updated my blog. Yeah, and that’s not fucking retard. Anyway… here’s some new shit… Coats & Corpses is live, check it out if you haven’t already it’s “interesting” to say the least. I know I’m always talking shit about music so you might as well listen to some of mine and make fun of me. It’s got free downloads as well, and just in case you didn’t know… I’m not in every band, but I do know people who were.

Hey Weird

Yeah, so this is totally not news. This band hasn’t existed for at least 2 or 3 years, but I just ran across it today at work. Decided to put it up on Coats & Corpses. Just click the link on the right.

Sketchbook

So I was in a slump for a minute, and I thought I had forgotten how to draw. (Which sucks, because I actually have to do it very often.) Then today I decided to do up a couple of sketches available on flickr…

Fuck Your Guns We've Got Guns Too Not to be Social, Just to be Normal

…and also here apparently. I will now be filtering all images through flickr because this WordPress site has a back end that is fucked and dying. Meaning that I can no longer upload pictures to it (Insert sad frown face.)

Remedy667

That’s right it’s back, and in full force. Check that shit, yo!

Niki’s Pizza

Rolling out the 30th Anniversary for a Detroit favorite they’ve got me doing some lightboxes and billboards. Presumably a new menu design as well, but stay tuned for all of that shit. However, it’s neighbor…

Loco’s Tex-Mex Grille

…had an awesome Cinco de Mayo this year. Did the posters… here’s a little bit of the process…

…and the final.

Cinco de Mayo Poster

Anyway, there’s always more, but that’s all I feel like sharing right now. Check out those few websites, and my flickr page. Also, look for more lies from a dead acrobat in the near future.

Back from the Dead…

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Well, it’s been a hectic few months… sooo… Here’s some stuff I’ve been working on recently…

doDetroit TV

Well, phase one has begun on doDetroit TV. Check it out at www.dodetroit.com/tv/. We’re still looking for music videos from bands, short films by local filmakers, commercials,and other places that would like to be featured. Check out the contact page if you would like to be featured, or if you would like to run the DVD in your business starting in the next month or so.

The Hadituptoheres Record Release Show

March 19th at the Old Miami. I designed the poster for this one, and they’ll be available at the show. Probably with the purchase of a record, but I’m not sure exactly how the band is handling that.

I’ll have a few additional ones for purchase at $3 each. If there are any left for the People’s Arts Festival, I’ll be giving them out as change. Yes, I do have plans of doing the festival this year… but we’ll see how that plays out as August 28 & 29 approach.

Ded Dave Show

I’ve got some paintings currently hanging up on set, you should be able to see them in an upcoming episode. Also, the St. Paddy’s Day Parade this year will feature the Ded Dave Show, and I’m going to try to make it out for that walk.

Detroit Dance N Graff 2010

I’m actually pretty pleased with how this logo turned out. It’s damn near impossible to find Graffiti fonts that aren’t total crap, so I opted for no fonts. Amazingly, I was actually able to come up with something. I’ll post an image of it later. I’ll be working on the website and flyer for that one later tonight.

I’ll do an image posting later tonight (if I have time)…
