Lickshot is Ben Watts’ photo scrapbook and travel diary, converted into hardcover. We were first turned onto Watts’ photography through his monograph, Big Up, that featured photographs overlayed with blasts of primary colors. With Lickshot, Watts lets the reader into his own world, complete with celebrity, exotic locations and pure grit. A definite addition to any library, and for your pleasure a sampling above and fresh promo video after the jump.
I have been diggin’ the work of Japanese photographer Yasumasa Yonehara ever since I saw his exhibition at the Reed space ages ago. It might have something to do with the subject matter (pretty Japanese girls) but, his juxtaposition of images really enhances it all. Apparently he has a blog up on Hypebeast, where you can see these images (above) and more. Also check out his own site CexWork.
You have to love it when creative people do really smart shit. For example, Sophie Blackall creates illustrations from Craigslist’s Missed Connections. Buy some of her works on etsy to support her further in creative endeavors.

The band, which will play live dates next week, also includes Joey Waronker, Mauro Refosco and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.”
Dead cell phones, the formulaic scary movie plot twist. When all else fails, dead cellphones will do the trick. Watch this amazing compilation of scary movie, post cellphone age, using the excuse “no signal”.
Anybody who knows us, knows that our second headquarters is Baden Baden in Koreatown. After looking through NY Mag’s The Bucket List, we may have to stray from our comfort zone temporarily, to get some more of this city’s tasty fried chicken. Momofuku has got “the Old Bay–seasoned “southern style.” Say word, very loudly. See the entire list of delicious Fried Chicken here
