Storm Thorgerson: Grand daddy of iconic album...
Crowded in a dimly lit auditorium, an unassuming grey haired man ambled across the faux Semi-Permanent living room. In silence he carried the wizened charms of a beloved grandparent. A sweeping hush ensued and the atmosphere was electric. Unapologetically blunt, jet lagged, but with the namesake of mythological Nordic proportions weighing on his back, Storm did not disappoint. Starting out as a...

Prague based illustrator Pavel Fuksa designed 178 vintage matchboxes especially for this music video. It is Awesome!!
The notion of a museum of modern art has been called a contradiction of terms,...– John Carey
Recycling is mashed-up with art with a mystery artist filching empty milk bottles from unsuspecting doorsteps and returning them with elaborately etched pictures on them. Little frescos of animals and farmyard scenes. Although I suspect there may be a more over-arching socio-political message being orchestrated, I’m feeling this citizen’s art as the modern milk-man’s Zorro.
Food is loving, cooking is foreplay, and eating is making love.– Bunny Crumpacker
I like it when forgotten things fall out of old books. I love when strangers accidentally start walking in step. I want to notice the small things. I want to remember them. I was thinking to myself, “How do we know what to forget? Do we really know what’s important? I am still thinking about that. I will write it down in my journal. “Figure out what’s important.” There. I think, “Maybe we can’t...
There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well....– Jane Austen
It was an awesome day last week when all those who believe in equal rights for all as California’s Prop 8 was overturned by Chief US District Judge Vaughn Walker, deeming it unconstitutional. I remembered today this little short video, Devin & Glenn: Make Gays Marry, which injects some realism into the facets of everyday married life. Justin Long (the Mac guy) along with Mike White (awesome...

Conversation, Making Librarians should limit themselves to one “cat story” per day to avoid the risk of becoming a bore around the library workplace. Also, once you are home, limit yourself to one “library story” per day to avoid becoming a bore to your cat.
Turning the spotlight back onto New Zealand, these little snapshots belong to Andrew ‘last name unknown’ of Cuba Gallery. There’s a specific style and colour treatment that shines through his work and effectively plays up the dramatic elements of composition. The result are slices of spellbinding episodes you can loose your self in. Freeze frames of the slightly retro and of cinematic scope....

No Country For Small Men
In late night wanderings I stumbled over a series of models and photographs by Florian Tremp. A series of evocative, murky and humorous vignettes. Hasty burials, oil spills and torched late-model luxury cars all resonate the feel of No Country for Old Men, hence the nifty play on words. Watch this adventure unfold here.
I was packing for Brisbane about this time last month, to visit some magical friends I had met on exchange in America. As I walked around the city, traces of the I Knit Brisbane project were haphazardly spurting forth from trees. I thought this was a tad odd. Lo and behold the wool installations had reigned down on the urbanscape to prepare the river city for its rather mild winter. A type of...
The kids over at Palldium continue to be much more than a footwear company. They’ve created a spectacular series of videos themed around exploration… in Palladium boots, of course. There’s the subtle plug. In their latest installment we are traipsing around London’s high rise blocks to submerge ourselves in the underground culture of pirate radio. I admit I was quite surprised by the sheer...
