For any wandering minds dreaming about taking off… watch this short shot on super 16mm relating the hopes and desires of those who go for a road trip.
“It’s simple, but truly enough to make your heart beat.”
I have a huge crush on artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera. A parisian artist, she fills the holes in sidewalks with beautiful colored yarn. I love the idea of taking something damaged & making it beautiful just as much as I adore any form of public art.
Talk about a badass combination. The Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture takes you on a journey exploring punk fashion from original punk garments to more recent, high fashion pieces by some of the worlds more influential designers. The exhibit gives an in depth look at the relationship between the all too familiar punk concept of D.I.Y and the more mysterious couture concept of “made to measure.” The seven galleries bring music and fashion together in an amazingly visual way. The installation even opens with a re-creation of the graffiti stained unisex bathroom at CBGB, an iconic music venue where many of punk music’s finest found their start.
Whether you’re a die hard fan of the Sex Pistols or Vivienne Westwood, PUNK will give you a rad view of how this anarchist musical movement of the 1970s wildly influenced both couture and ready to wear collections over the past 40 years.
The exhibition runs through August 14, 2013 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The Soho House team has done it again. Event manager, Zoe Fletcher, joins forces with Bombay Sapphire to bring you a wacky new sensory experience of film and food, called Edible Cinema. Set at the Electric in London, moviegoers are seated in plush leather chairs or beds (yes, beds) while they’re thrust onto a roller coaster of taste and texture. I saw cult classic, This is Spinal Tap, and it was amazing.
Greeted with a gin cocktail that’s covered in edible glitter and pyrotechnics, you find your seat and settle in. Near your feet you’ll notice a tray, with little boxes numbered 1-8. Throughout the movie, a lovely lady to the right of the playing film flashes correlating numbers onto a small screen. When the number appears, you open the box and shove whatever is inside of it into your mouth. The flavors are unexpected and the textures are sure to imprint already memorable moments into your mind forever.
Peach flavored marshmallow puffs (appropriately called Bum Cakes) started the movie off during the first song, “Big Bottom”. My mouth was filled with an explosion of airy, yet gummy bizarreness. It was like eating a dessert of soft flesh. The horror of Nigel’s miniature bread sandwich is perfectly translated with a tiny piece of rye, smoked ham (vegan options available) and a pitted olive. I felt like I was in the film. Next, the band’s ill-fated attempt to harmonize at Elvis Presley’s Graceland grave is met with spoonfuls of dark chocolate mousse, cake crumbs and edible flowers. The sensation of having dirt in my mouth was brilliant. But my personal favorite? As bassist Derek Smalls is forced to remove the foil-wrapped cucumber from his pants at airport security, you’re signaled to guzzle a gin mixture of the same vegetable. It was comical but impacting - just like the boys of Spinal Tap.
The Edible Cinema is experimental and off the wall. It may not be for purists, but it is absolutely something worth experiencing. At least once. But be forewarned - the amount of gin definitely outweighs the peckish little bites. It’s not a bad idea to have a meal before, unless you want to come out buzzing from both the experience and the booze.
Screening dates are kept under wraps until right before tickets go on sale, but I have some insider information that suggests the next Edible Cinema will be at the end of June at the Aubin Cinema in Shoreditch. Follow them on twitter to stay up to date on the details.

Visual inspiration collection for today:
I had the pleasure of seeing Devendra Banhart in Joshua Tree this past weekend. We arrived right before sunset, fed some pigs, walked around admiring the desert flowers in bloom and chatted with Devendra’s fiance the very talented and quite funny Ana Kras.
When the band took to the stage, it was complete darkness. The moon was only a sliver that night, but the lighting on stage illumiated the musicians in that perfect kind of mood lighting that can only exist when performing outdoors in the middle of nowhere.
The thing that struck me the most was the fan base. Women were crawling on top of each other to get as close to Devendra as possible. Singing their hearts out. Clutching their breasts. I had seriously never seen anything like it before. With his smile and beautiful voice it was almost as though he put them into a trance.
The band made of many talented men with past experiences in the Strokes, Joanna Newsome’s Recordings, Los Hermanos & Little Joy.
Watching them under the desert sky was an ethereal experience only made more special by the delicious drinks at Pappy & Harrietts served in mason jars. (I am a cocktail enthusiast)
To end the set, Devendra called up his fiance for a song. The admiration in their eyes for each other made my heart flutter and her desert jacket certainly sweetened the deal.
Los Angeles be sure to catch them tonight in Hollywood!
