Japanese friend of mine sent this link over - Pink Panther (and Shag) are selling Humming Flare deoderizer
(click the blue rectangle on the right of the 8/28). i recognize the woman in the ad, but i'll check back and make sure (she's one of the many Japanese TV 'starlets' popping up on talk/game/reality shows).
Is Shag known in Japan? i'd say no, but i was never with the 'hip kids' during my five years there. Amazing how, for such a consumerist society, Shag knick-knacks were never peddled (even Hello Kitty has a vibrator
and toilet paper
, not that i would want Shag-style versions of either).
The LA Times
has a very good article
about the Shag family's dwelling that just popped on-line today (20 Jan).
The Shag Be@rbrick is popping up on eBay
after being released at the Parco in Sapporo in December.
Just got word that the Tiki Quartet
serigraph set is still available
for $80.00 (+ Postage). Just become a Grand Member
for $24.00 and then you can get a set... all for the low low price of $104.00
Eight of the ten images from M-Modern
's upcoming Shag solo show "Gracious Oasis
" are up on the Shag site. AMAZING looking stuff!! Now that i'm gainfully employed and have the $$$$, i wish i had the time to drive the Scion xA (don't laugh) down to PS and try my luck at scoring an original.
Also, the "Show
" and "News
" pages have been updated too.
