Haters Gonna Hate
Wisdom is a soothing book by Andrew Zuckerman featuring portraits, thoughts, and lessons learned from the over-65 set of luminaries. This 2011 edition published by Abrams features new interviews with Yoko Ono, Jeanne Moreau, and Helmut Jahn.
If by some unlikely occurrence the lots by the likes of Steve Powers, Eric Haze, Todd James, or Shepard Fairey don’t do it for you, maybe the signed photo by Brad Pitt or the odd door piece by James Franco will tickle your fancy.
Support Style Wars if you can afford to.
Apparently there is some insane law in DC where you’re not allowed to dance inside of memorials. In the video above you can watch police use excessive force (including a bodyslam, and chokehold) to arrest some cheesy, idiotic dudes dancing. Park Police in DC are the worst.
“The Dutch government on Friday said it would start banning tourists from buying cannabis from “coffee shops” and impose restrictions on Dutch customers by the end of the year.”
Pictured above is Barney’s, a great first stop in the Dutch capital.
Congratulations to Jed Mildon for landing the world’s first Triple Backflip at the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo, New Zealand over the weekend. And also congrats to Team Hot Wheels for a branded world record for distance jump in a four-wheeled vehicle.
For those of you who vacated all types of media since Friday, you’ll be sad to learn that Gil Scott-Heron passed away at the age of 62.
We’ll be back on Tuesday.
The leaves have grown thick
atop the monuments
erected in memory
of horrible men
who amassed by horrible means
all of the wealth needed
to cement their legacies
Lindsay has an incredible emotional and physical presence on screen that holds an existential vulnerability, while harnessing the power of the transcendental—the moment in transition. She is able to connect with us past all of our memory and projection, expressing our own inner eminence. -Richard Phillips

A couple weeks ago I took part in a little staycation at the Mondrian Soho. Why? Because sometimes you just need a break from normality while still being able to go about your daily life. The room I had I can only phrase as a sky palace, as the ceiling did indeed match the sky, while everything else in the room was saturated with light and white. The hotel itself is a fantasy, with it’s designer Benjamin Noriega Ortiz taking cues from Jean Cocteau’s La Belle et la Bête. Along with a top notch restaurant in Imperial No. 9, that is perfect for every meal and a seductive club, Mister H, that finds itself full of models and various forms of celebrities until the lighter parts of the night, the Mondrian SOHO is your complete vacation package.
