My Sister, The Star
Friday Viewing: Factories
So far we’ve done magic and trains. When I got to this week clocks seemed like a natural progression but I somehow got sidetracked into factories. These films portray factories from fanciful to domineering. I know a Soviet film that framed the factory as a beautiful inorganic reflection of nature… A, you know it? Still looking into that one…. And so, the factory: ...
A bit back, I saw these dolls of Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington by Andrew Yang. He is amazing, and Tavi went to his show last month, where he remade his favorite FW10 looks, along with some McQueen legacies. Her flickr set it here, and I put my favorites below.

Friday (that's a lie, it's Saturday) Viewing
This week it’s all about trains, above and below ground. UPDATE:One more- Market Street, San Fransisco, shot 4 days before the 1905 Earthquake. Interior New York Subway, 1905. (with some YouTube soundtrack) Night Mail, 1936. The Lady Vanishes, 1938. As copyright has lapsed the whole thing can be...
Everyone is talking about Hatsune Miku
Is it weird that i think this is kind of awesome? If it weren’t for the unrealistic fetishized female body I’d sort of dig going to a concert for a totally computer generated band. It seems Gorillaz didn’t take it far enough. -via Huffpo
Terry and Jay
Together at last Though still not as good as Terry and the RZA, which is hands down the greatest interview of all time)
Taking J's Place, The Tourist's Titles
Usually J’s place to comment on titles, but… Can’t find word if this will be the style of the actual title sequence, but the new trailer for The Tourist features the most design school titles ever. Every presentation I have seen in a year and a half features grey and orange sans serif with strong tracking and dividing bars, ha! Watch Angelina and Johnny, in Venice, jumping and...
The 2010 winner of the Manser Medal for best new house in the UK by the Royal Institute of British Architects has been awarded to ACME for Hunsett Mill, for their extension to a 19th c. mill keepers house. The masses of the addition are hidden behind original brick house, so that from the view above, it is invisible. Photos are from Hindsvik Blog and Dezeen, and there are lots more on both,...
Oh, yes please.
Harris Tweed and Nike. Susie Bubble went to visit Harris Tweed and see the countryside and the tweeds get made. I really wish they came in my size.

Yeah, J and I REALLY like high tea. And as graduates from a rural liberal arts college, we also have weak spot for strangely groomed men doing masculine versions of girly things, like knitting, baking, and of course, having tea. From an old NYTimes T magazine. Also, its so cold here, anything warm (beards, tea, baking cakes) is really exciting to me. The recipe for the Green Tea and Raspberry...
A and I saw this several years back at the V&A show “Touch Me” in it’s first incarnation. Since then MIT has progressed the project as part of it’s distance lab. It’s kind of awesome.
