Blxcklist is a highly curated movement. No format is left untouched. Raw, spacial, textural qualities play an important role in the essence of the Blxcklist brand. Blxcklist strips down the standards of design. Partial Satisfaction is a series inspired by post humanism, separation from reality + the unknown.

Industrial pop duo, AZAR SWAN ( Zohra Atash and Joshua Strawn ) have just released a new music video that will transport you into a world of Bauhaus movement-esque imagery and the dance moves of the late 80’s. Two of my favorite things. Enjoy !

Relaxing at the beach. Weekend brunches. Napping under trees in the park. All part of a beautiful & amazing summer repertoire. Summer is about relaxing, after all. However, sometimes you need to get those hands and creative brain churning and for that otherwild is here to help!
They have planned a summer camp series with the following events:
Taking place in Otherwild’s main location in echo park, it’s truly inspirational to see these homesteading workshops becoming popular and having people be inspired to make things from scratch.Get in on it! WORKSHOPS
Monday was Bastille Day (and National Nude Day, which in my opinion is no coincidence), but since we were embodying all things French, we were too busy eating baguettes and drinking wine to trouble ourselves with the inter-webs. Lucky for you, the laissez faire life… consuming fresh bread daily, being devastatingly stylish and in the buff… well, those are things worth celebrating every day, non?
Welcome to our installment of: Baguettes & Boobs
Grant Doolittle’s approach in life resonates not only in his craft but also in his calm aura. His meticulous, incredibly considerate, and delicate to the eye yet strong to the test works of art are pieces that you do not just wear or hang; you live with them, and even farther so, you live IN them. Having objects that lose their objectivity and become a part of you, growing with you, aging with you, that is the type of object we should strive to collect. Something made by the hands and life of another to then join into your own and connect, I think that’s the good shit right there.
Grant let us come into his downtown LA studio and see his space, inspirations, and his pup Monkey and made us a WORKAHOLIC playlist.
This is Grant Knits, and he is a WORKAHOLIC:
What do you do?
I knit, clothes for men and and women, costumes, wall hangings, and interior objects.
How did you get to where you are now?
Laguna ———-> Long Beach ————> Seattle————> San Francisco ————-> Paris—————> Los Angeles
How do you find your inspiration and do you find it easy to stay organized?
I find inspiration everywhere, my favorite is the library, but I also get inspired on the street, at art shows, music shows, museums, parties, really anywhere. I never know when something will strike a chord.
How important is your work, and do you feel it defines you?
In the grand scheme of things I’m not sure how important my work is, I think that’s for other people to determine on their own. My work is an extension of who I am as a person and most people who know or meet me understand that very quickly.
What has been the most exciting thing you have done with your work, and what is a dream situation you’d like to find yourself in?
The most exciting thing is always making pieces for my friends, It’s honestly so rewarding and provides the best feelings. My dream situation would be to take my knitting on the road with me and knit different pieces inspired by all the places I want to visit.
How do you define your personal style, work and clothing, etc.
Do you listen to music during your work day?
Yes music is a big part of my work environment, though sometimes I just like background noise. Right now I’ve been listening to (in addition the the playlist I made you) :
What’s something someone may not know about you?
I have a dog named Monkey.
Grant’s WORKAHOLIC playlist:
Anything else you would like to say or for us to know?
Thank you for reading this. :)
UPCOMING SINGLE RELEASE SHOW IN BROOKLYN @ ROUGHTRADE Gold Collar Records
Outfest, the Los Angeles based LGBT Film festival—which is in it’s 32nd year—starts tonight!!
While we live in our liberal bubble it’s important to remember that these sort of events make a difference and show a completely different perspective of how it is to live and be gay in other countries and cultures. Don’t worry—there are comedies as well. Including the one showing at tonight’s Opening Gala.
Check out some pictures below from for the screenings—which you can find here.
