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 […]

WORKAHOLIC // BEN ASHTON

As a child I was always obsessed with the idea of having a portrait, much like The Portrait of Dorian Gray, of myself that felt more like myself than my own flesh. Hyper-realism, or soul catching, as I like to refer to it, has always blown me away. The idea that you can mimic the […]

R.SWIADER // LENDING EASE AND HAPPINESS THIS SS/15

NATURE VS ENVIRONMENT // DAIDO MORIYAMA

When getting lost on the Little Big Man Gallery site, I stumbled upon Daido’s work and couldn’t continue my aimless search.  His work held me eyes, and the part of your brain that plays the games of recognition took over. There is a part of you that feels like you are more connected and more involved when you […]

THANKS FOR TRYING // CULTURE COLLIDE 2014

Besides the music and the beer, stylish fellow festival-goers can be quite an asset to a weekend of music. Now, I’m not talking about the one-size-fits-all flower crowns and cutoffs that a certain California festival provides, but more the outfits that seem to be inspired by an actual personal taste in clothing versus the need […]
