Because they build museum-grade reproductions of the MA-1 flight jacket that require prospective owners to be on waiting lists for several years before one even has a chance of possibly, one day, owning the jacket. Because they can say to you, with absolute seriousness, believing that it means something, 'I like your lifestyle!'
Wer hat ihm denn einen solchen Knebelvertrag aufgezwungen? Die Plattenfirma? »Nein, das waren meine Kompagnons. Ich war exklusiv dabei, hatte aber keinen Einfluss auf die Arbeitsbedingungen und den Output. Ich konnte nur hinkommen und komponieren, das war eine unglaublich prekäre Situation. Eigentlich wollte ich gar nicht weg von Kraftwerk, es fiel mir unglaublich schwer, da hab ich jahrelang dran gebastelt.«
His whole life has been about proving things, to the people around him, to strangers, to himself. This has been successful and spectacularly unhealthy. If the boy in those letters from Chapel Hill is gone, it is this appetite to prove -- to attack and to dominate and to win -- that killed him. In the many biographies written about Jordan, most notably in David Halberstam's "Playing for Keeps," a common word used to describe Jordan is "rage." Jordan might have stopped playing basketball, but the rage is still there. The fire remains
there are all kinds of medication lying around and one band member has to have his bandage changed every half hour! It was so obviously existential, it just had nothing to do with show business. It was about getting completely immersed into a performance
“Paul’s Boutique” was a kaleidoscopically referential art-rap memory palace, constructed out of a thousand samples, at more or less the last moment before copyright law made that kind of music-making fiscally impossible. The album didn’t sell, and the president of Capitol Records, who signed the band, lost his job, but critics recognized it as an evolutionary leap, comparing it to “Sgt. Pepper” and “Blonde on Blonde.”
look at me in my bedroom with my flannel-shirted boyfriend, look at the perfect meal I made for a picnic on our living room floor, look at me admitting to the dry skin I cured with this yummy organic shea butter — suggests a world flung open to you by a friend who wants to share every worthy secret to help you improve every aspect of your lifestyle. Those secrets, though, are products and humblebrags. The advice they offer is merely how to make ourselves, as women, ever more decorative.
So the airport decided on a new approach: instead of reducing wait times, it moved the arrival gates away from the main terminal and routed bags to the outermost carousel. Passengers now had to walk six times longer to get their bags. Complaints dropped to near zero.
Kiyota told me he cold brews his coffee, then ages it for up to 10 days, “until it tastes like Glenmorangie.” It's an extraordinary flavor to tease from roasted seeds but he does it and you should try it. If he lets you.
We no longer need to toil away for months or years at a time crafting a ‘finished’ album, because digital media — by its very nature — has destroyed the hitherto-held understanding of what ‘finished’ really is.
Q. Did you ever think that the lessons you first learned on the stage of an improv comedy theater in Chicago would pay off later in life? A. It pays off in your life when you’re in an elevator and people are uncomfortable. You can just say, “That’s a beautiful scarf.”
Sollten die Artikel aber zunehmend über digitale Medien, etwa das iPad, gegen Bezahlung gelesen werden, wäre das kein Unglück – selbst die überzeugtesten Printadepten sind keine Holzhändler, es geht um den Inhalt, nicht um die Form.
Wir müssen uns andere Orte suchen, um einen Distinktionsgewinn zu erhalten, wie ihn Lancia versprach. Wir müssen den Exzess, die Exzentrik, den Eigensinn wieder suchen gehen: Den wüsten Exzess des Delta Integrale, die stille Exzentrik des Kappa Coupé – den Eigensinn vieler Lancias.
The production will be focused around the fact that when one amplifies the basic constituents of sound into a building such as sine waves and noise, what is reflected back contains an imprint of the space and all of its nuances; just as when an acoustician plays pulses and sine wave sweeps into a space in order assess its properties, or when a bat uses echo location to navigate through an environment.
Divided into two rectangles—one dark, one light—the relationship between sea and sky takes on an almost abstract geometry that carries from image to image and ocean to ocean around the world. Like Rothko, Sugimoto conveys a startling range of emotions within a limited vocabulary of black and white tones and a fixed format.
