Alexander Puschkin K***** 1825

Я помню чудное мгновенье: Передо мной явилась ты, Как мимолётное виденье, Как гений чистой красоты. В томленьях грусти безнадёжной, В тревогах шумной суеты, Звучал мне долго голос нежный, И снились милые черты. Шли годы. Бурь порыв мятежный Рассеял прежние мечты.

west, nike, adidas

So then I start turning up in the BBC interview, so [Nike] said, ok cool, we’re gonna give you a bigger sandbox to play in. We’re gonna give you this amount right here to design, and two collections a year, and 30 skews — that’s the amount of items that you have. Would that make […]

Hipsterism

Go down any halfway reasonable checklist for what constitutes a modern hipster, and Ill stand up well. Tattoos and black-rimmed glasses? Check. Tight jeans and undersized hoodies with retro sneakers?

They often feel entitled […]

KEEP IT DEEP

Wer auf der Suche nach exzessiven Partys und fetten Bässen auf die kulturellen Werke dieser «Communities» stößt, sich diese aneignet, aber deren Wurzeln und Geschichte ignoriert, ignoriert auch die Entstehungsbedingungen ebendieser Subkultur selbst.

STOP CALLING IT DEEP HOUSE!

So, whether exploring the universe or the self, the known or the unknown, real deep house is something you feel in the blood in your veins rather than in the sweat down your face; it’s a feeling not a physical reaction. Theres a place in the world for the garage-influenced and direct house taking the […]

Weeds

Sechs Staffeln lang war Weeds die aufregendste Serie, die das amerikanische Fernsehen im Halbstunden-Format hergeben konnte. Weeds war der Grund für den plötzlichen Erfolg des Bezahlsenders Showtime. Der intelligente Plot der Serie, die großartigen Schauspieler und das Single-Camera-Format gaben dem Sender einen Vorsprung gegenüber Konkurrenten wie HBO. Eine Komödie, die bis heute Seinesgleichen sucht. Die […]
