HILLMAN from Hillman Curtis on Vimeo. I’m watching this in that strange state when you realize how much someone has affected you only after they are gone. This happened to me recently with the death of Maurice Sendak (creator of Where The Wild Things Are) a little while ago and when Miriam Makeba passed away. […]

Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) is like a photographic gun-slinger, I like that, even though I’m not that into ‘fashion.’ Of course this is a commercial, but it’s still nice, just close your eyes when the logo comes up at the end (6:43).. lol

John Forte spent seven years in prison after being closely associated with Lauryn Hill and the Fugees and their enormous record The Score. Since then he’s been pushing at his own music and struggling to break through. This is a trailer for a documentary that documents a Russian tour he recently did and his fight […]
Another one from the blog of Tigist Selam. I don’t know how she finds this shit.

It asks the question “how did the revolution of 2011 change Egyptian artists and their work?” via (my favourite blogger) Tigist […]
I like this. A short conversation with photographer Jimmy Fontaine who I know nothing about. Everything Went Black by Paul Stone.
I like Kendrick Lamar. I think he’s one of the most interesting young rappers out right now. Although I don’t really like everything that he does he seems to be on a path that is a little deeper than most of his contemporaries.
I pulled this from the Manifesto blog quite a while ago but never posted it. The Boombox Project is an interesting project and a beautifully shot short doc piece on it’s creator.
