    Eight years ago, Alex and I were classmates in Rome. Six years ago, we were neighbours in Brooklyn. Unfortunately don’t see much of him these days, but seems he’s always up to a dozen or so new and interesting things, and is always an inspiration. Nice to see him get some Booooooom love.

    Really beautiful. I love the technique, but most of I love the theme and the evidence of past human activity, but the lack of actual humans. Call me sociopathic, but to me these look like really beautiful places. I think the evidence of what (was) todays chaotic western consumerist culture contrasted with the lack of movement after that culture has disappeared makes these pieces seem so much more peaceful, and our existence in the here and now seem so much noisier and aggressive. Really good stuff!

kanye-lifeofpablo-generator

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
