Ethos / Justin Wu + Nick Bateman
I wrote the monologue voiceover for Justin Wu’s new video Ethos featuring actor Nick Bateman. I’m very excited and gracious that I got to be a part of this. It’s pretty cool when your words are put into some greater context that gives them meaning, or even an audience. I’ve been doing a lot of writing recently for a score of publications (read: like, two), and with rewrites...
Visionaries: Tom Ford
Anna Wintour Interview / Vogue Archives
Access to 400,000 pages of fashion history can be yours for $1500, a nominal fee equal to what it would have cost you to buy every issue of Vogue in real life when it came out, in order to look at it in “crisp detail, with all the illustrations and ads” on a screen. Do you live in the 1920s and wonder what shoes you should wear out in the rain? $1500 for the answer. Or free here (just...
Alexander Fury Lives Up To His Name
Alexander Fury lived up to his name today, when he took to twitter to rant about one Alexa Chung. I know, this ain’t a news blog, and this type of thing you’d more expect to read on Jezebel, but give me a break, I just had to use that pun. Chung, recent recipient of the British Style Award two years running, is basically one of those fashion floaters who cruises on by, adorned with...
Karim Sadli + 032c
Leave it to Beaver (read: 032c) to come up with a creative way to expand on the visual horizons of Italo Zucchelli’s chef d’œuvre that was the CK Collection F/W 2011. I want every piece here, mostly because I know that if I were given the money to afford anything resembling something more high fashion than Zara, I would splurge on these padded nylon-sleeved (at least, I’m...
Thomas Lohr + Sleek Magazine / Lowdown
Thomas Lohr puts a new spin on the shaved head. Too many editorials have featured bad haircuts, or Cole Mohr getting his head shaved. There should be a fuck yeah models getting their head shaved tumblr, because there are so many crummy examples that I’m too sloth to find. I swear all of the ideas I put on here that don’t get acted upon could really turn into million dollar ideas....
Peel Away the Outer Shell
I’ve been attending a party with children (follow me). It’s my output when I have little input. I’ve been busy working on closing the February issue of Husk (follow us), and a cool project with Justin Wu (follow him). Hopefully more cool stuff to come when I have more time. We’ve got a lot of exciting stuff for this new issue—working with some pretty impressive...
Derivative Works of Art
A video mashup (also written as video mash-up) is the combination of multiple sources of video—which usually have no relation with each other—into a derivative work, often lampooning its component sources or another text. Many mashup videos are humorous movie trailer parodies, a later genre of mashups gaining much popularity. To the extent that mashups are ‘transformative’ of original...
