Hey, we're not always on the attack here. There are things we Sharks appreciate. I intend to intermittently present booster-like praise for deserving people, places and actions. Here's one.
I'd like to draw attention to a website and a specific post on it. Iconoduel is a Chicago art and culture blog which I have often enjoyed reading due to its creator's in depth comments and the excellent research with which he backs them up. As Art in America accurately wrote about the author and his site,
"[Iconoduel is] Dan Hopewell's enthusiastic, informed, intelligent commentary on the art scene in his hometown of Chicago and elsewhere. Iconoduel offers considerably more intellectual content than most art blogs."
A wonderful example of this is his newest commentary on the beginning of a come-back for Roky Erickson, musician, garage and psychedelic rock pioneer, shock therapy survivor and former lead singer of the 13th Floor Elevators . Go check it out, and listen to amazing sound files! Shark congrats Dan!
