Mooneyes, Yokohama Custom Show. Yeah — none of us are gonna be there but this getting-ready video gives a nice overview of custom bike and rod builders in the US at the moment. “Demo reel” for this year and last year. Nice video — nasty music.
Much more fun can be had on the Mooneyes website. The loud, crowded feel of a 60’s hot rod magazine in a browser. And they sell dog toys? (Hidden Diaz bonus: photos from a VW Type 2 party in Sept.)
A little classic Ducati to get your moto week off to a good start.
Food and Science
Truffles, black truffles not the chocolate kind, have complicated sex lives. And same-sex dorms.
The sweet irony of finding dinosaur fossils in church marble is too hard to pass up. And the bonus of the recommendations for a couple of cool urban geology books makes this a must-link for a Monday.
Art, Images, and Design
Apparently I am hopelessly out of date. Not only can’t identify most of the musicians associated with these clothes when I looked up the answers I didn’t know who a good handful of them were. Can you do better? Ensemble: The Style of Music, 20 musicians identified by their clothing.
More images from music. This essay on Elvis Presley features some of the best rock and roll photography. Black and whites from the 50’s and 60’s.
We make our cities in our own images. And when we make films we make new cities to express our new vision. A look at a handful of iconic cinema cities going back to 1927 (Metropolis.)
alright my dears, let’s make this week just a smidgen better than last week shall we?
