I work at TellApart and we are out standing in our field. Hat tip to our CEO for the Photoshop work and accompanying one liner. It still gets me.
Love this stuff

Street Life Community
This wonderful, gentle dude lives acros the hall from me and is always smoking cigarettes in front of the building. He’s like the mayor. When I’m locked out, he helps me get in. When old ladies are walking up the hill with groceries, he helps them. Shout out to you dude, you’re awesome! If you live in a city, I highly recommend Jane Jacob’s book The Life and Death of...

My James Turrell book came in the mail yesterday. I got it after going to permanent the James Turrell installation at the de Young Museum in SF, above. There I met this dude who studies how sounds and chanting can cure mental and physical illness. I could hear him chanting in a remote part of the installation for maybe five minutes before I introduced myself. He chanted for a while...
Gucci Mane (contd.)
Now, for your moment of Zen: highlights from the @GucciManeDoingThings Twitter account. Concurrent with his sentencing, it was renamed last week to @GucciManeInJail. This is one of the best fake Twitter accounts ever. INTROSPECTIVE, INTELLECTUAL GUCCI FRUSTRATED GUCCISELFLESS, WELL-INTENTIONED GUCCILEGAL EAGLE GUCCIGUCCI & WAKA, FRIENDS FOREVER
I’ve been a Gucci Mane fan for two or three years. He is great rapper. When I say he’s a great rapper, I mean he’s very good at recording rhyming words but world-class at being crazy. First, you have his jewlery. Other rappers wear diamonds around their neck, whereas Gucci Mane adorns himself with random shit (traffic signs, football helmets, a black version of Kenny from...

More Gonzo Architectural Tours
I was really vibing with the owner/operator ladies at the seaside tourist trap where I bought this. This brand Marushka is fire though. Handprinted in Grand Haven, Michigan. I’m gonna be stocking up on $30 sea grass print hoodies, do the Coastal Living street wear thing.
Today was all J.R. Writer
[DatPiff dl link] [DatPiff dl link] [DatPiff dl link] Shouts to everyone still following Dipset and the family, probably my favorite rap crew of all time — Jim Jones, Cam’ron, Vado, Hell Rell, J.R Writer, Max B, Juelz Santana, producer Araab Muzik. Love them all, no homo. You know Cam’ron popularized the phrase “no homo” right? I could go on….
I recently saw a Brenta 38. Beautiful. Those Italians know how to make pretty boats.
Executive Hand Gesturing
Doesn’t this scream effective business communication? Look at the hand gestures and level of engagement. Although this looks like it was taken straight from the pages of the business section, its actually just my brother telling my mom how difficult it was to paddle while learning to surf today. It photographs real well though. (cc CTO Mark and our forthcoming book of seemingly inane tips...

What Up Koch?!
Earlier this week I randomly started following Greg Mishka on Twitter after one of my favorite rap groups Das Racist retweeted him. Pictured above is a Mishka t-shirt I got back in 2005 or 2006 when I was at Columbia. Shortly after purchase, I went to see beloved former NYC Mayor and People’s Court Judge Ed Koch speak on a panel about NYC government. Only after getting to the panel did I...
I take a lot of screen grabs and I took this screen grab months ago and have been trying to figure out why it is so captivating. I just realized. She’s the Madonna! Couldn’t find her on Facebook, holla at me Jessica!

Helmut Newton's Autobiography
This book is so good. I read in when it first came out in 2003 and am rereading it now. Helmet Newton led an incredibly adventurous life. Most of the book focuses on the period before he was an established photograph. He left Nazi Germany alone at 18, landing first in Singapore then in Australia. Recommended.
This is a painting of a photograph my brother took while he was working as a reporter at the Shelter Island Reporter. This photo of his has got so much shine, they put it on the cover of the phone book. Really awesome.

Rob & His Antique Cars
I was walking home from an errand yesterday and the door to the garage next door was open for the first time in the months since I’ve moved to to my apt. The garage probably fit 40 cars, but there were only 6 inside, 4 of which were the incredible antique cars you see pictured below. These two were Mercury’s from the early 60’s, I think (I didn’t take notes). This was...
