There is nothing so agonizing to the fine skin of vanity as the application of a rough truth.

More travels.

Ok, so the pic above doesn’t really represent what I was up to the last couple weeks - it felt much more like work. Enjoyable work, but still work.

I just got back from lapping (see below) Italy for two weeks and I’m a few days away from heading off to Hong Kong again. I really don’t do a great job of updating things on here while I’m gone, but I do have a few insights I will share in the coming weeks.


Tough.

I bought a Land Rover earlier this year but have always had a thing for these old Ford Bronco’s. But this one is simply bad ass - and not just your ordinary refab. Read more here.

Another double header…

Quote:

Fox News: Have you ever had to settle a claim, given money, or paid someone because of a claim of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct?

Cain: At the Restaurant Association… now, outside of the Restaurant Association, absolutely not.

More importantly, stick around for the end for the campaign finance improprieties that have gotten lost in all this.

“He’s like Bush only without the brains,” cracked one former Republican governor who knows Perry.

Fox “News” wouldn’t air it, but everybody else did.

The news media, including your garbage local news, doesn’t want to speak to the intelligent members of society and will only air the schmucks and morons.

This guy is so legit you can even accept the fact that he is wearing a Union soldier cap.


Phosphorescence Erin Wasson

Posted: September 22nd, 2011 | Author: christopher | Filed under: style | Tags: | No Comments »

I’m in China at the moment, but before my current trip I was in Vegas and LA for the shows (ugh), shopping, and visiting with friends. While I was in LA I stopped by Union and came across the Phosphorescence sunglasses, pictured above, designed by Erin Wasson. They are like a matte black version of my prescription Moscot Lemtosh’s. But where my Lemtosh’s go clear at the bottom these have a depth change. It creates a very nice illusion and is a great classic look but with a little bit of an edge.

My only complaint is that, although made in Japan, the quality is a little suspect for the price. Definitely not on par with a Dita in fit and finish. But don’t get me wrong, I still picked them up for myself. I just couldn’t pass them by.


The Changing Countryside by Jorg Müller

Posted: September 9th, 2011 | Author: christopher | Filed under: art, life, print | Tags: | 2 Comments »

Ninski has owned The Changing Countryside by Jorg Müller for many years. He shared it with me for the first time 6 years ago and I was just in awe.

Although this is sold as a hardbound book it is not really a book at all. It’s an unbound collection of seven meticulously rendered fold-out spreads meant to be viewed successively. It’s truly a work of art. And it is really meant to be viewed much larger than you can on a computer screen, but please click on the images to enlarge them a bit as you go through them.

“The hero of the story, a pink Victorian house with a mansard roof, stands surrounded by rolling meadows in the German countryside. Cows graze, trees and shrubs blossom, and a farmer tills his field in an image dated “Wednesday, May 6, 1953.” Spread by spread, industrial development encroaches as the prominent hues move from gold and green to gray. A train station goes up in the background of the 1956 spread. In the autumn twilight, a bulldozer fells a stand of old trees, making way for two storage tanks (1959). Boys still skate on the pond in 1963, but construction vehicles work behind them, and smokestacks obscure the view of the mountains. By 1969, the house, choked by development, falls to the wrecking ball. In the final spread, all evidence that the house, pond, fields and trees ever existed has vanished. A four-lane highway runs through the center of the spread, surrounded by high-rises, factories and a shiny discount store. Müller’s (The Bear Who Wanted to Be a Bear) wordless murals show progress as a kind of slowly-moving violence whose victims do not speak. Talking about change with children who haven’t been around long enough to see it happen is not easy; here Müller offers parents and educators an invaluable—if disheartening—resource.” Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

T.O.T.D.

Posted: September 6th, 2011 | Author: christopher | Filed under: humor | Tags: | No Comments »

Really, this could be T.O.T.Year for both. But they get to share this honor today. Cantor for using FEMA funding, being used to help Hurricane Irene victims, as a political tool and Boehner for showing such little respect for the office of the presidency by denying Obama his request to speak to the House on Wednesday.


The disaster that was.

Posted: September 1st, 2011 | Author: christopher | Filed under: news, people | Tags: | No Comments »

I have to say I’m more than a little annoyed that many of the ‘menswear’ blogs, especially those that are NY based, have dismissed Hurricane Irene as over-hyped and uneventful. They are doing a disservice to the thousands of people who are still dealing with flooding and power outages across the northeast. Mind you, Paterson, New Jersey (amongst other towns) still looks like this today almost a week after the storm passed through. Not sure the residents of this town feel it was much to do about nothing.


Out of touch much.

A teacher wants to teach.

Posted: August 30th, 2011 | Author: christopher | Filed under: news, politics | Tags: , , | 2 Comments »

When I first saw a clip of this video clip on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell last week I initially thought, wow, good for Matt Damon for standing up for what he believes in even if I didn’t fully agree. But after getting an opportunity to see the unedited exchange I realized how much he was aided by the ill-prepared interviewer and he sort of comes off as d-bag.

Don’t get me wrong, I support union rights whole-heartedly. It’s just hard for me to understand how the current rules under which public schools are run are benefiting our children. It is a system that is set up to simply protect jobs rather than quality teachers. We are spending more money per child now than ever with no results and it is clear that is not the solution.

I am a product of the public school system but more and more I question whether my own children will be the same as I must consider private options if they are going to be able to thrive in an ever competitive global community.


As you may have noticed…

Posted: August 15th, 2011 | Author: christopher | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: | No Comments »

As you may have noticed NewDandyism is officially off our hiatus, or at least I am, I think Ninski is still looking for some time off.

Life has been very busy for the both of us the past 8 months or so that we have been away, but I think there is just too much to talk about not to be using this as a place to share some thoughts, ideas, and interests.

As we get geared up and start letting the posts flow again I think you will notice a shift in the tone and focus of the site. As time goes by, like all people, we evolve and we are finding there are new things we would like to share and other things we have no interest in talking about anymore.

There will be no huge sight relaunch with a corresponding launch party - just some subtle tweaks as we go along and some new content.

And as always, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section or contact us via email at contact@newdandyism.com.

And to those of you who have been checking the site regularly despite the lack of updates, we apologize for wasting a few minutes of your day and hope some fresh content will make up for it.

thanks,
Christopher

We’re not dead.

Just staying away from the web for a while.

Giving the blog thing a little break.

Ninski gave away his television… he feels smarter.

Gang of Four sold there music to be used in the new Xbox campaign.

Seriously sad.


Paris gets some Botox

Posted: September 13th, 2010 | Author: ninski | Filed under: design, life | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

As you know, there are so many design blogs out there. Fast Company’s design blog is one of the few good ones, employing some great oversized imagery and raising some interesting topics. But much of what is out there is rehashed, regurgitated, parroted. More and more I’ve been noticing there is a blind enthusiasm to these things- rarely do I hear a critical review, or even a different point of view. For me a critique can be more interesting than simply echoing others. So forgive me, but (again) I’d like to provide a different view on the various “developments” in the world.

This time around I’d like to give a hearty thanks to Foster + Partners, for their completely crappy (and oh so glossy) Hermitage Plaza scheme in La Defence, Paris.

It will be built in 2016, and I must say it proves once again that these guys, and firms such as OMA, are totally lost. What the hell do two massive towers have to do with the fabric of Paris? La Defense is already a tragedy- a completely soulless collection of barren, windswept facades… and now, this. To add insult to injury they’ve added a miniature park at the base of these monstrosities. Awful. People love Paris for a reason, and its not because of these sorts of buildings. This slick garbage can be seen in Hong Kong, NYC, anywhere there is big money and oversized egos. I say these architects are lost because they are so self involved, so focused on design philosophies, styles, and of making grand statements, they completely miss the point of what they should be doing. Please (and really, If it helps, I’ll beg), do us all a favour F+P, shut down operations and make this world a better place. Spreading your “designs” around the globe is more than just distasteful, it is damaging.


That’s…

Tony Judt, R.I.P.

Posted: August 10th, 2010 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, life, people | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Not to be a downer here, but I wanted to note the passing of a really intelligent and inspiring man, Tony Judt. His awful struggle with ALS was covered in the media until his demise… was a shitty disease to die from. I’ve been reading some of his articles for a while now… his views were most enlightening and humanistic, and he wasn’t afraid to say it as it was. An old interview with him can be see here.
