The Sky Whale

by Patricia Piccinini.

I interviewed Patricia about ten years ago after she did the Venice Biennale but kind of lost track of her since. This ‘Sky Whale’ has a sense of poetry and downright weirdness that makes me feel all tingly inside.

Action Bronson

Strictly 4 My Jeeps

I’m trying really hard to come up with another word than ‘shenanigans’ to describe this video. But I know I’ll fail in the end.

Favourite lyric:  “I’ll punch you in the face on picture day.” NSFW, by any means.

Agent Provocateur

opened a new shop in Antwerp and photographer Tim Peters was there for our sister site Ü.

12 Years of DFA: Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic

A mini-doc, but not the boring kind. Narrated by Marc Maron, of the unmissable WTF podcast. Well worth the watch, just for the ‘Jamaican Cruise’ moment alone.

….aaaand a classic to finish you off:

Dazed & Confused re-published the interiew between

David Bowie and Alexander McQueen.

An excellent reminder on how taking things serious sometimes means not taking anyone else serious at all.

And just because I can, here’s my most cherished McQueen moment: the spring/summer collection of 2001. (VOSS)
