    TIM & ERIC // DRAG DARLINGS FOR JUCO

    While you may still be soaking in the butt juices of PAPER’s Kim Kardashian spread, another series of images made their way online and they are much, much more tantalizing: the geniuses over there put comedians Tim Heideckerand Eric Wareheim in drag…and had JUCO photograph them! Now, know I am happy to write about anything JUCO […]

    Slowdive at the Ace Hotel Theatre // Childhood dreams come true

    Music saved my life… no really, it actually did.  I have no idea what type of normal person I would have become nor am I really interested in knowing, had I not had the influence of music such as Slowdive growing up.  I know it’s hard going to see bands you watched in the 90’s […]

Artist Crush // Liesl Pfeffer

Currently crushing hard on Liesl Pfeffer‘s Garden Study series for a multitude of reasons, the first being that she actually uses the scientific name for each!!! Then you get to the art. Liesl has completely mastered the skill of complex minimalism. Her shapes are simplified while the textures of the images she uses in her collages […]

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. // CELEBRATING THE MAN WHO HAD A DREAM

May we all take a moment today to honor and appreciate a brilliant mind that believed in justice and equality above all. As a society, we still have a long way to go to abolish discrimination based on the fear of the other, but thanks in much part to Martin Luther King Jr., we are […]

LITTLE SECRETS // KESTRIN PANTERA X NIKI SCHWAN

Director Kestrin Pantera was so inspired by stylist Niki Schwan’s new store that she wrote and directed a ‘Goldilocks-meets-Gaga film’ called “Little Secrets,” which takes place in Schwan’s fashion boutique: Girl breaks into store after-hours to live her dress-up fantasy and sneaks out… perhaps to do it again another night. Schwan has styled artists from […]

FOXYGEN // PERFORMANCE RETURNS

I was just having a conversation with myself about the lack of showmanship I seem to be coming across when going to live events.  Yes they may seem nice and entertaining, calm and deep…but after revisiting “Rock and Roll Circus”  that the Rolling Stones put on decades ago, and the emotion they gave to their audience […]

If this isn’t a movie, then please explain why you are sitting on the plush blue couch in our room at the Hampton Inn in Oxnard of all places quietly playing your guitar and singing “Be My Baby” while I lay face down on the lumpy white comforter on the bed (at least one of […]

MANIA // ALEXANDER WANG

In the summer of 2013, a group of die-hard T by Alexander Wang fans got a very special treat: the chance to clamor each other in the name of free stuff. The video below paints a terrifying picture of a consumer culture so desperate for more that all shreds of humanity are lost in the […]

HERB FRIENDS FOR WINTER // Part 1

Lizanne Deliz from @eyeofcrowherbs has lent us some of her knowledge to get us through this season.   The winter season with its weathers, its holidays, and for some of us its connotations of extended blood-family time, make it a particularly appropriate time to get serious about nourishing ourselves in loving, earth-based ways. Our plant (and […]
