2010 pirelli calendar by terry richardson

disclaimer: i know, this is the 2010 calendar, and i really ought be posting about the 2011 pirelli calendar (photographed by karl largerfield, no less), but i only just found this. excuse my lack of ability time to post current material.

the first segment of this clip seems somewhat pornographic, but sit tight (or enjoy it?) - as you delve further into the clip you get a glimpse of the talent and brilliance that is photography icon - terry richardson. a tad off topic, but might i add - abbey lee kershaw has such a beautiful personality. young, carefree and down to earth. amazing.

"Terry Richardson is an international celebrity as well as one of the most prolific and compelling photographers of his generation. Known for his uncanny ability to cut to the raw essence of whomever appears before his lens, Mr. Richardson's vision is at once humorous, tragic, often beautiful, and always provocative." -

tron: legacy

change the scheme! alter the mood! electrify the boys and girls, if you'd be so kind.

not in love

i saw your picture hangin' on the back of my door
won't give you my heart, no one lives there anymore
and we were lovers, now we can't be friends
fascination ends, here we go again
cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough

i'm not in love

could it be that time has taken it's toll
won't take you so far, i am in control
and we were lovers, now we can't be friends
fascination ends, here we go again
cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough

kozyndan short film

kozyndan's collaboration with motion theory resfest circa 2004. if you're familiar with kozyndan's artwork, at some point you will have come across the brilliance that is their panoramic works of art. artistic (married) duo - kozy sketches the artwork and dan colours the final sketches with his photoshop skills. below is a motion picture version of their work.

" ... moves from left to right. so instead of just watching it one image after another, it's almost like you're reading it like a book. so it's a crossover between still images and moving images because you have to read the screen before the stuff leaves the screen. that's the sort of different way of seeing that we were trying to capture. so that it's not just about the content but also about how you experience the content." - grady hall (creative director)


"Our bike frame bag was modeled after a vintage smaller bike frame bag we found in France. Check our blog page for more images. It's perfect for a paperback, gloves, phone, sunglasses or even a sandwich. Three loops with dull silver buckles to secure it to the frame. Collar button closures on the front flap. Adjustable. Hand-stitched with wax cording. Hand-oiled and edged. 8" x 5" x 2" Made in the USA." - n0. 211 bike pouch
"Our hand-stitched shoulder satchel is modeled after a WWII Belgium Map Case we had. It was just too small for our use so we re-designed it and made ours larger. There is nothing else on the market like this. Each one takes a few hours to complete. One solid pieces of cow hide is stitched with heavy wax cording to form the satchel. We had all the hardware cast in white bronze. Comes with an all leather adjustable strap with shoulder piece, dull silver rings and collar buttons. Hand-stitched detailing throughout. Hand-oiled and edged. 9 3/4" X 11." Made in the USA. There are a number of customer sent images on our blog page featuring their well-used No. 95's.

the geometry of pasta

"The Italians have a secret. Over the centuries, they have pioneered more than 300 shapes of pasta, each with a history, a story to tell, and an affinity for particular foods. These shapes have evolved alongside the flavors of local ingredients, and the perfect combination can turn an ordinary dish into something sublime. The Geometry of Pasta pairs more than one hundred authentic recipes from critically acclaimed chef Jacob Kenedy with award-winning designer Caz Hildebrand's stunning black-and-white designs to reveal the science, history, and philosophy behind spectacular pasta dishes from all over Italy." - amazon
