Morning Linkage (Jan 17)


Contemplating the changes in the cul­ture of rac­ing and rule mak­ing. Reims in ’54 the return of the Mercedes and a grid full of indi­vid­u­al­is­tic machines.

Really I spoil you all. I should be look­ing these bikes up and dol­ing them out one at a time. But what the hel­lz. A bonan­za bou­quet of old (real­ly old) bikes at the Bonham’s Las Vegas auc­tion. Munch Mammut, an H‑D Peashooter from a mine in Western Australia, and my fav the Indian Camelback.


Jogging, not just hat­ed exer­cise but per­haps an adap­tive evo­lu­tion­ary advan­tage? Something called endurance hunt­ing may have been an impor­tant fac­tor in the suc­cess of our ances­tors. Oh hell, pass the fries.

I’m going to lose big kar­ma points for post­ing this but… cats con­fused about what’s up and what’s down in weight­less­ness. On video.

Art, Images, and Design

Paper — cut and lay­ered by Britteny Lee. Her ani­mals always have way too much personality.

Impulsive kiss­es. Given on a street cor­ner. Painted on a street cor­ner. C215 and, prob­a­bly, his girl Alice.

Betraying a sense of the del­i­ca­cy of the divide between humans and their fel­lows that is far more sophis­ti­cat­ed than you expect from a 21 year old. Russian artist Eugene Soloviev cre­ates stripped-down float­ing landscapes.


Street art, meets stop-motion, meets flip-book. 294 walls, 4 cities, 3000 kilo­me­ters. Think about what that means. Think about how the vid ends. By the Turkish group, Sokak Savasa Karsi.  (Video 1:30 — music)
