2 wheel obsession

I have been riding my bike a lot these days and am feeling that an upgrade is due. I know there is a trend toward the fixed gear but, this bicycle from Kronan is my new must have. Classic in every aspect of the word, it’s like a sherman tank.

Reminisce Over This

It’s the bottom of the river, Tom Fun Orchestra


Tom Fun Orchestra, Bottom of the River.

This is a very cool collaboration of music, animation and storytelling. I feel it might have a little inspiration from Camille Rose Garcia.

Don’t red laces in Docs mean that the wearer has shed blood for his skinhead brethren?

Right?. I guess we can be glad that the ‘white pack’ hasn’t come out yet.

Coco 144

We were tipped off to a new website for Founding member of United Graffiti Artists (UGA) Coco 144.  There is some really great work, and it is pretty rad seeing how his letters, COCO, have evolved in his work over nearly 3 1/2 decades.

Have a look above, and see more on his site here

Lumen Tactile display lets you touch in all directions


The Lumen Tactile Display prototype has a lot going for itself. As for the “world of tomorrow” themed video, it needs some help. Now you need to hire a really good designer/UX/UI person to put a face on it. Created by Ivan Poupyrev

Thomas demand: a prototype of the real world

I recently was caught up on most of the podcasts from Monocle, and thought to tell you about this great interview with Thomas Demand I just saw.  Demand is a German artist who recently had a solo show addressing nationalism in Germany titled National Gallery at The Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin.  The amazing body of work was comprised of installations made out of paper then photographed. The models he creates are sterile, timeless fabrications of reality that make you question the relevance of the image and context as well as its reality. In the interview the artist speaks to his work and gives you an insight to his ideas, meaning and process. It is worth your time.

what I didn’t get for x-mas, Carbon Black Special edtion, Aston Martin.

If I could this would be it, a limited edition carbon black Austin Martin.

Do you really need to know more. This would also fit well in my black list.
