I really dig these fotos by Mario Pucic.  The stark minimalism, the soft colours, the framing, and the sense of space.

Velvet-covered Porsche Panamera.

It’s no secret that i LOVE the Porsche Panamera.  I think it is simply the most epic looking sedan on the market today.  I know that many of you hate it…but I want one.  Pretty badly.

Now, having gotten that out of the way…this velvet-covered Panamera spotted in London is definitely one of the most bizarre finishes I have ever seen on a moving vehicle.   So………….is it possible to get one finished in Alcantara?

Gods are bored.

the-datsuns-gods-are-bored

I saw The Datsuns live several years ago in Chicago and they absolutely blew my mind.  Easily one of the finest live bands i’ve ever seen…..fierce and full of raw power.   If you have a chance to see The Datsuns play live…GO.

This past week….”Gods Are Bored” has been looping around my headphones.

In session:

here’s a clip of them playing “Gods are Bored” LIVE:

as a bonus, “Sittin Pretty” from the same show LIVE:

quiet motion.

quiet-motion-by-bmw

 

I am loving the idea of this…movement in silence.  There is something very epic about the sounds of silence….if one can appreciate sounds extensively, one increases their appreciation of silence.

This installation was done by BMW in relation to their “i” sub-brand.

petrol station lounge.

Well this is quite lovely, as created by Sophie Valla Architects:

“the construction of the north-south subway presented amsterdam north with the opportunity to turn the center of district into a park. sinking the nieuwe leeuwarderweg highway by seven meters allowed to merge three existing green spaces to create a central recreational zone for the residents of the area. located in a site where two gas stations from the eighties were going to be demolished, buildings mirror each other on both sides of the entrance – uniquely suited for public gathering.”

i’d like to sit there, in winter, and have a coffee.

Beady Eye: Flick Of The Finger.

beady-eye-liam-gallagher

The NSFW (sorry, that’s a late warning innit?) album cover to the new Beady Eye album:

beady-eye

 

It’s no secret i’ve been a massive Oasis fan since I was a kid.  I’ve never cared much to meet heroes or mingle with celebrities…..BUT meeting Liam Gallagher when I was 18 was quite literally a life-changing experience.   He was friendly, real, and most of all— super nice to a kid who was finding his identity.  Fast-forward many years…and Beady Eye have released their first single from their new album “BE” and it is one hell of a single.  The new album comes out in June.

quote of the month: mediocrity.

I’ve never read anything that a gentleman named Norman Mailer has written, however while perusing Nolan Bushnell’s twitter feed, I came across this quote which is just phenomenal.

Dazzle Ship.

A beautiful oil painting by Edward Wadsworth from 1919 as a part of the glorious Vorticism movement, entitled “Dazzle Ship In Drydock At Liverpool”.

I’m currently on the lookout to buy some original Vorticist paintings by people such as Wyndham Lewis and Edward Wadsworth, amongst others, so if anyone reading this has any leads to places which may have such paintings for sale or on auction, please shoot me an e-mail or leave a reply here with your contact info.

Anatomy book re-imagined.

This is beautiful.  I wish my Anatomy books looked like this when I was in Med. School.  A concept for a futuristic/re-imagined/beautiful anatomy/osteology book by Irene Shkarovska.

Irene: if you’re reading this.  I want a copy….or two!  Just take my money.  I’m blown away.

Match.

I need this lighting in my life.  “Match” is marketed by Vidia and designed by  Jordi Vilardell & Meritxell Vidal

“This innovative product stands as a new lighting concept based on co-creation. Match allows you to create structures arranged chaotically, automatically planned on-line and adapted to fit into the room and the space available. The result is infinite artistic configurations based on thin rods of aluminum and LED light terminals, forming a light sculpture that illuminates central themes of space and interior decoration.”

CLA45 AMG.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is NOW.  An AWD, 4-cylinder, turbocharged, 360hp, dual-clutch gearbox, in a beautiful slope-y sedan outline ready to launch this week at the NY Auto Show. 

In the past, i’ve been very excited about this entire generation of upcoming MB ‘smaller’ cars…..even though i had spewed some critique about the original A-class concept back in the day.
