• Marianna Rothen // Shadows in Paradise

    A red dress is lying like a carcass on the lawn. Shoes abandoned next to it; the chair tipped up.

If the women in Marianna Rothen’s earlier series (Snow […]

LITTLE SECRETS // KESTRIN PANTERA X NIKI SCHWAN

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 […]

Weather better // by Yasi Salek

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 […]

Our plant (and […]
