Earlier this year, designer Stefan Sagmeister released his book “Things I have Learned In My Life So Far” to much acclaim and much criticism. I have to laugh at all the people who hate on Sagmeister just for being in the privileged position to make work for fun and still have people buy it. I finally got my hands on the book and I am really enjoying it so far! I guess it’s not actually a book – it’s actually 15 separate little zines each with a different image that can been viewed through the open slots of the front cover.
I don’t want to turn this blog into a gadget blog but I know there are a lot of photo enthusiasts browsing the site and The Leaf AFi 10 camera just sounds ridiculously cool. 56×36 mm true wide frame, 56 megapixels, and can shoot up to iso800. Oh, did I mention this baby’s got a 6x7cm touch screen so you can view a true 1:1 raw image?!
oobject is like ffffound (what’s with all the websites with repeated letters these days, haha sheesh), if ffffound were organized by a really anal person. Actually oobject is one of several “curation” sites that are becoming really popular. You suggest images, they curate and compile. 16 giant bucket excavators. 10 ski jumps. 12 ejector seats. 18 tiny projectors. 10 luxury trains. 20 classic 8mm cameras. The images below are from a list of craftsy weapons.
In keeping with the theme of double v’s, I present you with Nevver. The premise is simple, Peter posts one img and one mp3 every day. Two reasons why it works. 1 – Peter’s taste in music is excellent and 2 – The images are all from random films that would please even the most hardcore cinephiles. Take a look, you’ll be hooked in no time.
Not too long ago I featured a bunch of tracks from Toronto-based MSTRKRFT. Well it’s that time again, not for more MSTRKRFT but for more from Toronto. DEADMAU5! This is his 2-hour Essential mix! Pete Tong’s voice on the intros to these essential mixes always gets me pumped up. Throw this on while you work and you’ll be at home before you know it or throw this on over the weekend and you’ll be back to work before you know it. This is the type of music that makes me speed on the highway.
