Morning Linkage (Mar 24)


From Life mag­a­zine. Daytona in 1948. 22 pics. Take your time.

Another CB750, this one from Chicago. I like the rough edges.

Or per­haps this one — a tad rougher.


Society and Culture (Food)

Foodie Trend Watch. Your cup­cakes are no longer cool, hip, and indis­pens­able for (adult) birth­day par­ties. Meet the dough­nuts, the new cup­cakes. Yes there is a recipe, no I don’t want to know how good they are.


Art, Images, and Design

The Rhythms of Modern Life:  British Prints 1914–1939.  Exhibition from Miami’s Wolfsonian Museum.  So many things that go fast, bikes, cars, run­ners. Fabulous mod­ernistic style.

Scrap yard objects become moto-mechano-men. Or some­thing. Stephan Halleux.

Somewhat sim­i­lar, but not at all the same. Ron Pippen builds armor for angels.



Another selec­tion from the Academy Award nom­i­na­tions.  “The Lady and the Reaper (La Dama y la Muerte),” Javier Recio Gracia, direc­tor.  (Kandor Graphics and Green Moon) The lady would like to go now. All the sil­ly slap stick vio­lence of  Oscar win­ning Logorama — except this time it’s about death and it’s funny.
