This is a video for The Tree Ring that was shot by Destin Cretton. (I would have blogged about that fact alone. Finding someone with my name is like finding a straight dolphin.) The whole concept behind the shoot and how it was executed is fantastic. The moment at 3:21 could have been so cheesy, but they pull it off and it’s really kind of beautiful.
I really love Guess’ new campaign that was shot by the wonderful Ellen von Unwerth. Even though she uses a high contrast style, they all still seem so soft and have depth—perhaps due to how sensual the shots are. The classic Americana vibe throughout it all is awesome, too. It hearkens back to the simpler times of the fifties where men were men; women, objects; and there were no problems in life as they were all shoved into closets with all the gays.
Now I’m all about the brunettes normally, but hot pot of coffee do Elsa Hosk and Kate Upton look good here. As current US laws forbid me to have two wives (thanks a lot Obama), I will have to pick one to marry and one to be my mistress. Ahhh decisions!
It’s early summer and it’s twilight and it’s raining and all the girls are in sundresses and everyone is soaked and dancing and happy but also a little bit sad in the back of their mind.

This subtle and thoughtful video uses Carl Sagan’s The Pale Blue Dot (some of the best writing ever), and is perfect.
Rather than half, I decided to put my entire ass into making this mix. I hope you enjoy it. It’s been in the making for quite some time. Because of that, it clocks in at over an hour, making it the longest mixtape yet. What does that mean? That means you essentially get twice as much time to be fooled into thinking that I know anything about making mixtapes.
This one’s for Chris since he’s always saying nice things about me.
This is a wonderful short documentary about Scott Schumann, the man behind The Sartorialist. I visit his site everyday. He’s fast becoming an icon himself, with his eye for color, detail, and even tradition. He has one of the best jobs in the world, I think.
You know you never know what it is, what that the thing is that draws you to that person, but you just let it happen. It seems odd, but it’s almost like going out there and letting yourself fall in love everyday. // Scott Schumann
I went and saw Tron: Legacy last night. It was a lot better than I thought it would be, even with some pretty bad dialogue and plot holes. The movie still made me want to get a Ducati and a Daft Punk helmet. The latter duo did an impeccable job with the soundtrack. The whole album has this grand scale to it with this driving force, even when it’s just lingering right under the surface. The following songs occur back to back in the movie during a bar scene where the Frenchies make a cameo, and then an ensuing fight scene. I never thought I’d say this, but that would have been one fun rave.
