Photographer CHRISTIAN WITKIN photographed Tyra Banks… Yes that crazy one (the other crazy one) back in 1998. This shot looks like it was for a Ice T album cover. If you’re into buying limited edition prints check out photographerslimitededitions.com

Blackest of the Black Festival feat. Danzig comes to NYC October 15th.
The Roseland Ballroom’s celebration of dark, metal is not for the faint of heart or weak of ears. Glenn Danzig’s headlines, along with Norway’s Dimmu Borgir sound like turbocharged chants from the Middle Ages, with raspy verses and captivating orchestral passages — they’d be perfect for a horror-movie soundtrack. Portuguese metalheads Moonspell wield guttural screams and driving bass lines, while Winds of Plague and Skeletonwitch bring more variations on the theme. For more info check out Flavorpill.

Check out this CPCompany leather jacket. It’s a Mid-length double breasted, washed goatskin leather jacket with buttoned front fastening. Hopefully it will keep you warm this winter, when you can not afford your heating bill.
While trolling the internet, I came across this site, where a person was asked if they knew the source of imagery of a certain ‘Faile Dreams’ print. The writer did not but, a commenter directed them to the font source which was an issue of micronauts. Apparently finding out the origins of Faile’s images is pretty huge amongst some.
“Not unlike tracking down the sources of audio samples in hip-hop records, a ‘game’ that ensues for Faile enthusiasts is to try and determine the origins of the many visual ‘samples’.”
Which explains this thread in Faile’s Forum. Pretty interesting stuff.
Many folks see the next few weeks auctions as a defining point for the art market. Make or break. I was going to get a bit ambitious and include all of the lots I found attractive. I am however naturally lazy, so I found a way out of it by discovering an erroneus problem. There are too many desirable lots, and in some cases the difference between them is minute. I have however selected some great ones, pieces that should hold both their aesthetic and financial value and make their future owners very happy. Plus a couple steals!
