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

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.

You don’t have to make this stuff up

In light of MIA’s recent redhead persecution video, which was a bit of an overpriced joke, I thought I’d share a music video that is chock full of “controversial” imagery, most of it real and current. The first 40 seconds or so are quite strong. Nicked this from the most excellent Pampelmoose…

Felix really is. Nuts, that is. Watch for him to set a new world record as he hits mach 1 in a free fall from space, or possibly die trying. I don’t drink much Red Bull, but I’m a massive fan of their committed involvement to extreme sport, or crazy sports, or record attempts that seem to be all about doing something juvenile yet undeniably cool.

Fiona Banner

When I was a kid I was mad about aircraft. I was the type to have multiple plastic model projects on the go, and I could identify and list the specs on just about any military plane. Janes was my preferred reading… well, you get the idea. I suppose had I grown up to be an artist, and realized I could mess about with full scale versions of my dream jets, I’d be doing what Fiona Banner has done. These two recent installations at the Tate Modern are gorgeous, and for me, drool inducing.

Veyron Super Sport hits 267 mph

That is… truly fast. Totally useless info really, nothing grounded in reality, at least not in mine, but still an impressive machine for those who can afford it.

Doing the impossible

©The Impossible Project

Pictured is the Impossible Project founder Dr. Florian Kaps.

I love the defying-all-odds story here, the bringing a product offering back from the edge of extinction. I’ve been a fan of Polaroid cameras for a long while, having used them years before they became a trendy staple of a hipsters arsenal. I’m conflicted though by my affection for the unpredictable and painterly images one can create and the concern I have for the chemicals involved in making it happen. The biggest plus for going digital is moving away from all the sketchy toxic elements needed for instant film and traditional lab work. In any event, the Impossible Project is a cool development, and shows that insurmountable odds can be overcome with passion and determination. Plus their stores are bright, modern and actively engage their customers and fans.

Streets of fire

Streets Of Fire
When the night’s quiet and you don’t care anymore,
And your eyes are tired and there’s
someone at your door
And you realize you wanna let go
And the weak lies and the cold walls you embrace
Eat at your insides and leave you face to face with
Streets of fire

I’m wandering, a loser down these tracks
I’m dying, but girl I can’t go back
‘Cause in the darkness I hear somebody call my name
And when you realize how they tricked you this time
And it’s all lies but I’m strung out on the wire
In these streets of fire

I live now, only with strangers
I talk to only strangers
I walk with angels that have no place
Streets of fire

The Katana

Posted: May 14th, 2010 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, design | Tags: , | No Comments »

The incredible Suzuki Katana. Still so distinct… and an example of a design aging well. This shot, of a modifed Katana, is courtesy of the sweet bike site Bike Exif. This example was built by the fastidious Steve Adams.

Arc 572/582

Posted: May 12th, 2010 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, design, in store | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Titanium watch by Jacob Jensen Design. Seemingly very simple and clean, but with a large amount of thought behind the design. There is a clever hinged cover hiding a crown…

I once had the privilege of visiting the Jacob Jensen design studio to meet up with Timothy Jensen. I spent a beautiful summer afternoon at their gorgeous studio, and it proved to be very interesting and inspiring. I quickly realized Tim was whip smart, funny, and an incredibly gracious host.

Embalmehn Placen Beeldeegnn - Malmö, Sweden

Posted: May 5th, 2010 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, design | Tags: , | No Comments »

The new EPB structure, designed by Tham & Videgard Arkitekter, is absolutely beautiful! The building instantly catches your attention against the backdrop of more traditional architecture.

The austere, cage like building perfectly rejects it’s surroundings, making for a harsh and theatric effect. It is so out of context and disconnected- but then that is the genius thinking behind it’s design. Why? Because it’s a place for not-so-alive people. It’s cold, metallic box form truly speaks to its contents- as a bearer of the dead and embalmed. The exterior is perforated, in the same way cardboard pet holders are- how ingenious! Plus this building looks so out of place- as though it were dropped in from space, a 2001-esque monolith turd if you will. Truly inspiring. When I die they need to ship me to this beautiful example of fantastic modern design thinking.

Bill Moyers

Posted: May 3rd, 2010 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, life, news, people, politics | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

Bill Moyers is sadly now off the air. What a huge loss for journalism.

Check out his final show here. It’s a very enlightening episode, highlighting citizen activists in Iowa, and recent protests on Wall Street. Encouraging stuff. We need more of this, not less.

Chris Ware’s send up

Posted: April 28th, 2010 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, art, humor, life, politics | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

What an awesome big fuck you to Fortune-types. Lovely. Sad that a magazine of this stature can’t stand a little heat, or rather, truth. I wonder if Chris was hoping his cover art would be rejected. See his beautiful artwork here.

Clinton “Clint” Eastwood, Jr.

In a month Mr. Eastwood will be turning 80. The dude is officially OLD. Quite the milestone, and he doesn’t seem to be showing signs of slowing down. To celebrate his birthday we’ll be going back and watching a few of his notable films, and posting some reviews during the month of May.

Joan Jett

Love these images of Joan Jett circa 1977 by Brad Elterman.

Divey West Hollywood “rock n’ roll” motel. Black tee. Raw denim. Worn in vulcanized army-style gym shoes. John Wayne on the tele - perfect.

The genius of Welles

Posted: November 20th, 2009 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, film, people, politics | Tags: , , | No Comments »

I love this trailer. So different from the ones they do now, where the entire movie is shown in “best-of” snippets. Welles was a bloody genius. From the series of doc segments (after the jump) you can see how he started to unravel. So it seems most everyone has to deal with a failure in leadership, or management armed with grand myopia… I’m not sure if I take comfort in this realization, or if its a sad comment on the world.

Still going

Posted: November 12th, 2009 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, film, people | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

Mickey Rooney. Still going after all these years (89 of them). He’s a constant even though you’d figure he passed away years ago. I’m happy to report he is still alive and kicking, though he looks a bit different now from the photo above. He was a massive film star in the thirties, served in WWII… the guy has seen so much, lived through so many era’s- he’s a walking time capsule.

Block block block

Posted: October 30th, 2009 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, Not on the Runway | Tags: , , | No Comments »

For full effect, you need to watch this in HD. I like the dude that is sitting way to close for comfort (4:24)- shades of Corsica in the mid 80’s for sure. Its not WRC, but Block is pretty quick.

Vidal’s blistering critique of the US

Posted: October 8th, 2009 | Author: ninski | Filed under: Inspired, life, news, people | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Gore Vidal had a few things to say in a recent interview with the Independent, and he didn’t mince words.

I love his crotchety comments, especially on the current state of the US, though some of what he says is terrifying to contemplate. At age 84 he’s at the tail end of a fascinating and rich journey. Given his extensive life experience, Its worth listening to what he has to say.. harsh as it may be.
A few soundbites:

“To me hell is the United States of today.”

“But remember – the Republican Party is not a political party. It’s a mindset, like Hitler Youth. It’s full of hatred.”

Also have a look at a similar fireside chat with him, via the Times.
