Posted 12/2/14

In late October, a YouTube video for a hotel in Copenhagen went moderately viral—you may have seen it. Filmed using the glossy “people coming together” bank advert template, an orthodox voiceover man says things like “together we laugh at conformity” and “buzzing with authentic vibes” over footage of hipsters using their phones, visiting microbreweries, sitting in cafes, and generally looking like they’re auditioning for an alt reboot of The O.C. As the soun... [more]

Ruins Porn: The Art of Urban Decay  
10/5/14 Posted 10/14/14

When Matthew Christopher said "ruins porn" at his recent "Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences" Preservation Austin talk, sponsored by Suzanne Deal Booth, I was so guilty of it I blushed. I've had a penchant for the urban decay aesthetic for as long as I can recall. Fortunately I live downtown in a city that is constantly undergoing major construction and rapid population growth, so decomposing eye candy is part of my daily environment. Above is a snapshot I took of broken windows in my neighborhoo... [more]

Originally posted on Instagram as a @sebiart_walkingdiary snippet: Let’s call it the ‘little-train-that-could’. An Indian Food staple of NYC …so much so that a petition was drawn up to rescue it from ‘Death by Development’ that so many NYC mainstays fall prey to. This little canteen deli of vegetarian Punjabi food and sweets and Bollywood films is the best Indian you can find in the city…and certainly the cheapest. You stand in a narrow corridor, o... [more]

The 2012 Chicago Cultural Plan was recently released after roughly five months worth of town hall meetings, focus groups, interviews and conversations with artists and experts.

The preparation of the Plan was outsourced to the Canadian firm Lord Cultural Resources, who dressed it up with ful... [more]

PBS Blasts Romney's Snide Threat To Defund Public Broadcasting, Eliminate Big Bird and Fire Jim Lehrer  
10/4/12 Posted 10/4/12

  Last night's Presidential Debate revealed a new Romney style to the public: a smirking, manipulative and untruthful Mitt whose only strategy seemed to be lying baldfacedly about his policy ideas. Already, Romney has had to admit that he pushed misinformation in the debate to Mike Grunwald, the author of the brilliant new book - The New New Deal.     I agree with Paul Krugman and Tyler Green: Most of the commentary about last night's debate seems to be "theater criticism." MSNBC... [more]

These warriors come in various images; from the Roman gladiators or legionnaires, the Japanese samurai, or the medieval knight. We often romanticize these people in their exploits and most especially with thei... [more]
