Learn To Make Coffee At Intelligentsia

As you may or may not know, I am a licensed barista. That's right, I can make coffee anywhere in the world. Not just filters, but full on espresso (notice there is no X in the word espresso), cappuccino, and the best froth you can get. I don't like to brag, but I'll brag on my froth.

Anyway, the superb Department of the 4th Dimension - the premier short makers - has created a stunning set of shorts for exemplary coffeehouse Intelligentsia. And they are fantastic.

Check out the whole series here.


RRL By Ralph Lauren Is Nothing But Spectacular

I've long be a fan of turn of the century mugshots and stereoscopic photographs. Their atmosphere was deliberately evoked in my XTRMNTR series a couple years ago.

Ralph Lauren has released a lookbook for their RRL line, and the photographs are spectacular. Directly referencing to the work of early documentarian photographers, Lauren has created a legitimate collection of images, as stirring as any produced recently.

Additionally the site that supports the line is also a must see. Find the entire series RRL here. Find my XTRMNTR series here.

Simply brilliant.
