The 2 door station wagon (or is that 3 doors?) has always been a bit of an odd fish. But Ferrari thinks that it’s the answer to the demand for a four seat super-car, the FF. And Pininfarina can make just about anything beautiful. I think 12 cylinders is all the justification it needs. With Ferrari-in-the-snow video goodness Woot!
I’m a total sucker for Nick Clements videos. Pretentious as hell and too hip for their own cool. Still… pretty scenery, pretty bikes, and gorgeous cinematography. Featuring Cro Custom’s BS1. (Video)
Chopcult provides a fine set of images and info on the BS1 and the builder, Cro Custom’s, site has a couple of other more typically chopper bikes.
Arty interior shots featuring motorcycles, and the bikes are for rent to use in your own shoots. The carefully distressed Crossbones is, well… actually, a really appealing piece of rolling sculpture. Gentry Dayton is creative director of EvaGentry.
Art, Images, and Design
Ray Caesar is one of the many painters currently doing pallid, big-headed girls in peril. Much of a muchness, except that once in a while he does something that stops me dead. Like the sleigh and courtier in Homecoming. (Pardon the hellish URLs — they are shortened ;)
View the full show, A Gentle Kind of Cruelty, at Jonathan Levine Gallery’s website. (Some NSFW when zoomed)
Elaborately composed photographs can go either way for me. Some are just noise, others like the first two of these from Simon Proctor’s Daystar series captivate me. The videos created from the stills and other elements I’m very much on the fence about.
I’ve always loved the Burr puzzles. Now there’s this… Burr tables!
More about the Burr puzzles. (oh lordy that’s one seriously ugly website but it’s all I’ve got…)
Moving Images, and Animation
Did you know that there was a Japanese version of the Flintstones produced in the 1980s? Nope, neither did I. It’s a giggle.
Dancing robots… I said, Dancing Robots. New ident spots for (UK) Channel 4’s, T4 programming. (Video and loud music)
