Ryan McGinley: Naked and Famous by Alice Gregory

In the beginning, Ryan McGinley was an outsider. He used his band of beautiful friends to create photographs—rarely not naked but never quite sexy—that he now calls “evidence of fun.” But in the past decade, McGinley’s vision has evolved and expanded into a tidal wave of influence, affecting the look of art, advertising, music videos, film, even Instagram—and making him arguably the most important photographer in America. So why are so many of us just learning his name?

Asian Smog

The reason North America has been getting walloped with storms in the winter.

In a recent study, researchers found that when the pollution particles from Asia’s cities get pushed into the northern Pacific, they interact with water droplets in the air, resulting “in thicker and taller clouds and heavier precipitation.” These strong storms then feed into weather systems to the east, most noticeably during the wintertime. With no end to pollution in sight, expect winter to worsen forever.

“The Blob is 32 minutes of beats & sounds that have otherwise been orphaned by their hell-bound father. It is largely unmixed and occasionally offensive. James Lynch played bass on the one that sounds like an elf orgy. Allyson Baker played guitar on the last one. Mastered by Joey Raia.” – Aesop Rock

Space Blossoms

space-cherry-trees

In 2008, Japanese astronauts took cherry tree seeds with them to the International Space Station. After 8 months and 4,100 times around the globe, the seeds came home and were planted in various locations around Japan. Four years later, some of the “space cherry trees” are now blossoming with just five petals—compared with around 30—a full six years ahead of schedule. Hypothesizing about the radical growth, one researcher said “there is the possibility that exposure to stronger cosmic rays accelerated the process of sprouting and overall growth.”
