Birdwell Beach Britches

birdwell-beach-britches

Birdwell’s have been my bathing suit of choice ever since my father bought me my first pair at age 6 (read: young).  It seems now that the fashion world has caught on to these gems with the news of South Willard’s collaboration with the 40 + year old brand.  With all hope this will be the only collaboration Birdwell’s does, because most of the time basic is beautiful.

Saturday @ Phillips in New York

saturday-at-phillips

Just to throw it out into the blogosphere, the upcoming Saturday @ Phillips Auction in New York is in my opinion their best yet.  Maybe it is a reflection of the times, because there are lots of stellar pieces up for consumption.  Included are favorites such as Barry McGee, Cleon Peterson, Shepard Fairey, Richard Colman, and Os Gemeos.  We’ll have our normal round-up of stand out lots as the auction draws closer.

Reminisce Over This

Dr. Dre, Let Me Ride, 1992

Totally forgot about that $20 Sack Pyramid

guess who’s back…

Eminem is back with a new polished video, “We Made You”. I thought he was fat and on drugs…. but it looks like he has been working out with Dre and making fun of everyone. It also seems like Samantha Ronson is played by Hillary Swank?

Caleb Neelon on Why Prosecuting Shepard Fairey is Bad for Boston

obey-boston

Caleb Neelon had a speaking arrangement at the ICA in Boston this past Saturday. In part of it he spoke of Shepard Fairey’s arrest and made some very valid points about Boston itself.

You should read all of it, which he has published here.

Below, a quick excerpt.

“Shepard’s arrest gave every brand director, location scout, art collector, ad buyer, and trend spotter reason to be wary of doing business in our city – all the while snickering into their hand and shaking their heads at us. People laugh at Boston for being a city of culturally clueless Puritans, and because of that, business that depends on an audience to the contrary, avoids Boston. This arrest has renewed our subscription to this unfortunate perception.”

Caleb Neelon also has a show opening up this weekend at White Walls in San Francisco, go see it.

march madness is over now what?

popsugar

Well, PopSugar thinks you will be spending your time here. The single-elimination contest is meant to determine who the most popular celebrities are in a given year….. If they were smart, they would figure out a way to license the software so anyone can create these single elimination contests and place ads in it.  I think we can come up with a few of these on our own. But, if your into celebrities check it out. I am confused how they were paired against each other? If you have any ideas, let us know.

Last week we had a pink stormtrooper….this week a stripping stormtrooper. And somehow, they are related. Check out artwars for more info and images.

All Hail The Bacon Sandwich

Scientists have found that a Bacon Sandwich cures a hangover.

“Bingeing on alcohol depletes neurotransmitters too, but bacon contains a high level of aminos which tops these up, giving you a clearer head.”

We don’t know if you will be hitting any handrails with this one, and there is very little room for graphics, but if you are a commuter and want to skate to work and do not want to sweat your ass off then this is an option. It has a wireless control, if you step off it stops accelerating, and has Automatic ABS regenerative braking. What more can you ask for?  How soon till we see this on a ramp? For more info click here.

I used to be worried about using atms in ghetto bodegas. Now I have to worry about your branch banks as well. A reader on gizmodo posted photos and wrote about his experience at his local Chase bank in the East Village (NYC).  To find out more what to look for and how it was handled by the bank go here (posted yesterday). Times are tough and skimmers are getting creative.

NIN is set to launch their app that does everything! Well, almost everything… there are so many features this thing will do that we can only list a few.

It is basically a music/video/image browser with a number if connectors to NIN.com. It turns a bands already existed social network and fan base into a portable social army and offers all of NIN’s music for streaming on the go for free. It finds fans near you, allows you to communicate with them, send photos, chat at shows, gathered,unit and rule the world. It also lets you see images from shows around the world when your sitting at home in Iowa. Look for it soon in the app store.
