We haven’t spotted a sign of the Posse in a while, but this sticker in Tehran, Iran makes it worth the wait. The Posse is in The Middle East! Iran! (”I ran so far awayyyy…”) Right in the center of the photo, you can see the Milad Tower, aka the tallest tower in Iran. Super cool. The anonymous stickerer sent footage to the JBVLA for some “provenance”. Somehow this makes the world feel just a little bit smaller and better. Thanks to Amir for sending this my way!
Naturally, I had nothing to do with this sticker appearing next to the handy trolley route map during San Diego’s Comic-Con 2010. My role is merely the observer, and it was nice to observe that despite the clean-up efforts of the SDCC crew, the Posse represented night and day. You can find more of my non-posse-related SDCC photos here.
If Jon ever manages to make it out to Northern California, the Posse has staked out Saturn Cafe in Santa Cruz for a great lunch. This place really is my “favorite space age vegetarian diner.”
Saturn Café offers traditional comfort food with a healthy twist. Stepping into the Saturn Café, you know you have arrived on another planet. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff strives each day to exceed your expectations, and engage and delight your senses. This is a place where dressing up in a costume can happen on any night of the year, where the foods of childhood fantasies are even more delicious than you remember, and magic might just lie around the corner of every sparkly, pink booth.
Also, the staff are cute punk kids, the tables feature dioramas and the restrooms throw gender to the wind, instead offering you the options of robots vs. aliens.
We love the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse. We think the Posse did good on this one, as Jon is really committed to reusing materials too.
The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse is an ecological treasure trove of art & craft materials, educational supplies, vintage furniture, home décor, paper goods, fabric, and much more. Founded in 1979 by two Oakland public school teachers, the Depot promotes solid waste diversion and resource conservation through the Depot store and environmental education programs.
In early Fall, we found the above Posse sticker in the company of Rock Hudson, a shout out to heavy metal and a merry assortment of sliced tomato and pepper magnets. When we returned this week, Jon had been joined by Alfred E. Neuman, Dead Eyes, the alphabet and some really GOOD NEWS. I got this picture, and Greta got 5 vintage patterns, 1 broken candle, the tiniest bath tub you ever did see and a clear Christmas ornament, all for $1.81. If you’re in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland, CA, they’ve got a ton of new hardcover Upper Playground art books for only $2.50 each.
The Posse hit up the Vivienne Westwood shop in Harajuku. Look to the right of the Union Jack. Or go southeast of the Sexy Dynamite sign. Whatever works for you.
Tokyu Security is no match for the Posse! Nice triple-play of Maneki Neko.
The posse struck in Miami’s Wynwood area, where thanks to the interest of hip local galleries and walls and walls of outdoor murals sponsored by Deitch Projects (and sidenote: Jeffrey Deitch just named director of MOCA!), street art abounds. Very cool to see the posse stickers hobnobbing with the project’s biggest influencers, Shepard and Andre. Closeups after the jump.
Spotted at a a hardcore/punk CD stand at the Persistence Festival in Eindhoven, Holland. This is the pattern we’ve seen before here and also as a cat-friendly tablecloth during Jon’s American Summer. Fashionable scarves and punk rock vending, it’s all posse-approved.
I’m stoked whenever anybody from the posse checks in from somewhere in the world, but these photos really made me laugh. Stickerbombing the CSI is just utter brilliance. Oh, it should probably be said that such stickering is not a direct endorsement of any illicit or subversive practices from, ahem, on high. That disclaimer aside, the official Doodlesplatter position is that some substances that are illegal are actually less harmless than those which can be bought at the corner store. Thanks to a posse member who was passing through Schiphol.
The posse is always on the move, and when we’re not riding the rails in Russia, we need some good wheels of our own. These two South Coast skate/BMX shops endorse the posse, and we endorse them right back. Bored of South Coast (above) features a 2D JB as their much cooler version of a Walmart greeter. And ESP put Jon up on their special message board. What’s poppin’ indeed! Click through and spot the posse. Cheers Bored, ESP and Posse Anon!
