I’m the first of my kind and the only. So therefore I’m the best.
Posted
Friday, 12.02.2016

Lengthy interview with 22 year old creative fashion consultant Ian Connor by Mary Tramdack for ssense.com.

Another trend is how social media has opened up so many opportunities that weren’t there previously. But it’s also made the whole fashion and creative industry move at such a fast pace. And you seem like you’re so laid-back. How do you deal with that?

Cause I understand that I’m the first of my kind and the only. So therefore I’m the best. I don’t have to worry about competition and deadlines and shit. So I’m kind of lazy. What’d Rocky call me? “Unreliable sometimes.” [Laughs] Like there are times where he’ll tell me to come into the office and I’ll be like, “Yeah.” But I want to go hang out with the young kids! And I don’t know how to text back sometimes, like it sucks, I have to learn how to grow up with that. But it’s all easy for me. It’s like breathing. Creating for me is like breathing. The emotions that I don’t show for girls or other people, that’s my work right there. That’s my whole existence.

Aside from YEEZY, what are the labels you’re most excited about right now?

I love Palace. I love Bronze. Dime, from Montreal, I love them. So sus and weird. It makes me appreciate the clothes so much more, cause I know how sus [Phil Lavoie] is. And he is like, gone. Supreme still of course. I’m just really a streetwear kid. The high-end shit doesn’t excite me anymore. It’s still my everyday, but… I love J.W. J.W.’s really cool. Vetements. Alyx studios. Alyx is gonna be like… 2016 will be a good year for Matthew. For a fact. Matthew’s been the future. He’s the one that’s like, yo, this thing is the vision! I remember when he used to have like, tattoos, Latin Kings baseball jerseys with loafers, it was just so cool. He’s creative as shit.

Cogito ergo sum is a Latin philosophical proposition by René Descartes usually translated into English as "I think, therefore I am". The phrase originally appeared in French as je pense, donc je suis in his Discourse on the Method, so as to reach a wider audience than Latin would have allowed. It appeared in Latin in his later Principles of Philosophy. As Descartes explained, "[W]e cannot doubt of our existence while we doubt … ." A fuller form, dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum ("I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am”)[b], aptly captures Descartes’ intent.
This proposition became a fundamental element of Western philosophy, as it purported to form a secure foundation for knowledge in the face of radical doubt. While other knowledge could be a figment of imagination, deception, or mistake, Descartes asserted that the very act of doubting one's own existence served—at minimum—as proof of the reality of one's own mind; there must be a thinking entity—in this case the self—for there to be a thought.

Do Independent Magazines need Awards?

 

Rob Alderson, former Editor-in-Chief of It is nice that, now columnist for Magculture, run by Jeremy Leslie, ponders about indies and awards.

Dear Rob and dear Jeremy,

As independent publishers, here is what we think: No matter how hoary the relationship between creativity and awards are, we know very well that winning plaques is not a proof for creative effectiveness. Yet, any voice given to an independent magazine is a voice/sign in the right direction. It will be educating those who still need education and to learn about the importance of an independent medium, namely brands, advertisers and investors. And besides the independent market can be cleaned and diversified as well; an award could be a good tool.

Sunday, 31.01.2016

Scottie Cameron’s work is a result of his interests shaped by skateboarding, surfing, surrealist films, and the fashion world; he was once a men’s wear entrepreneur with his brother. His style touches minimalism with a graphic eye predominated by simple shapes, colors, shadows and a slice of humour. No wonder brands have discovered Scottie Cameron and have commissioned him for their advertising and editorial projects.

Viktor Frankl

 

Everything you have in life can be taken from you except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.

This is what determines the quality of the life we've lived – not whether we've been rich or poor, famous or unknown, healthy or suffering. What determines our quality of life is how we relate to these realities, what kind of meaning we assign them, what kind of attitude we cling to about them, what state of mind we allow them to trigger.

Za’atar

 

Zaatar is a generic name for a family of related Middle Eastern herbs from the genera Origanum (oregano), Calamintha (basil thyme), Thymus (typically Thymus vulgaris, i.e., thyme), and Satureja.

The name zaatar alone most properly applies to Origanum syriacum, considered by many to be the hyssop of the Bible.

It is also the name for a condiment made from the dried herbs, mixed with sesame seeds, dried sumac, and often salt, as well as other spices. Used in Arab cuisine, both the herb and spice mixture are popular throughout the Middle East, commonly eaten with pita, which is dipped in olive oil and then zaatar.

Qompendium x Cleartones
Posted
Monday, 14.12.2015

We at Qompendium are excited to present to you, dear readership, a very special gift, a result of a collaboration with Hugo Verweij of Cleartones.

There a bazillion of ringtones out there on the market but non so delicately written, so precise, minimal and yet ear piercing as these custom ringtones. You will not miss a phone call.

As a response to the ever growing amount of polyphonic and musical ringtones, Cleartones presents a set of minimalist ringtones and notification tones optimized for the iPhone and Android devices. These simple, monophonic ringtones are designed with a sole purpose: subtle notification.

Like the shoes you wear, a ringtone is part of your outfit. It says something about you. And, like with shoes, you have a choice. You might choose one of the standard ringtones and sound like everyone else. Or choose a custom ringtone. But be aware of the omnidirectional nature of sound: when your favorite Looney Tunes character, your favorite eighties disco anthem or your two-year old kid notifies you of an incoming call, your co-workers, students, or boss will hear it as well. Ringtones should be mood-less, personal, unobtrusive yet functional.

The Qompendium x Cleartones ringtone consists of a clear sound to grab the attention combined with a hidden message - the word QOMPENDIUM in morse code, on a very low volume.

Exclusive and free download here in friendly association with Cleartones. And some very special Qompendium Wallpapers going along with it.

The 43rd edition of the Pirelli Calendar was created by one of the most celebrated American photographers and portraitists, Annie Leibovitz, who shot the work last July in her New York studio. Leibovitz is also the creator of the 2000 Pirelli Calendar, which featured choreographer Mark Morris’s dancers. The 2000 pictures were the first set of nudes of her career.

Unlike previous Pirelli Calendars this time the focus is not on beauty and physiclity but more on intelligent, powerful and beautiful minds embodied by authentic talents.

The 2016 Pirelli Calendar features 13 women of outstanding professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishment: actress Yao Chen, the first Chinese UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador; Russian top model Natalia Vodianova, founder of the charity Naked Heart Russia; producer Kathleen Kennedy, the Chairperson of Lucasfilm and one of the most influential figures in Hollywood; art collector and patroness Agnes Gund (with her granddaughter Sadie Rain Hope-Gund), President Emerita of the Museum of Modern Art in New York; tennis player Serena Williams, number one in the world; opinion leader, critic and writer Fran Lebowitz; the President of Ariel Investments, Mellody Hobson, who supports charity projects in Chicago; film director Ava DuVernay, whose films include Selma, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture in 2015; blogger Tavi Gevinson, founder of Style Rookie and online magazine Rookie; Iranian visual artist Shirin Neshat; artist, musician and performer Yoko Ono; singer Patti Smith, one of the top rock stars of all time; and the actress and stand-up comedian Amy Schumer.

The women are of different ages and backgrounds and have different kinds of careers. As was the case with the first few Calendars of the Sixties and, more recently, in Peter Lindbergh’s 2002 Calendar, or Patrick Demarchelier’s 2008 and Steve McCurry’s 2013 Calendars, there are no nudes.

The Battle of the Martyrs
Posted
Wednesday, 25.11.2015

Since May 2014, St Paul's Cathedral in London has hosted one of the most recent works by Bill Viola, among the best-known video artists in the world. “Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water)” is a polyptych that, on four plasma screens, shows the same number of individuals being martyred by the natural elements. Around seven minutes long, the high definition films are shot in colour, without sound.

“At the start of the work,” says Bill Viola, “the four individuals are shown in stasis, a rest from their suffering. Gradually, each scene acquires movement. Each element of nature begins to disturb their calm. Flames descend, the winds begin to be unleashed, water pelts down and the land is raised. While the elements rage, the determination of every martyr remains undimmed. In their most violent aggression, the elements represent the darkest hour of the passage of the martyrs through death to the light. ”

The work is on long-term loan to the leading museum group, Tate, as part of the "St Paul's Cathedral Arts Project", a programme aimed at bringing together art and faith, which will soon be enriched with another work by Viola, dedicated to Mary.

The staging of the prestigious video installation in the splendid setting of the Cathedral was designed by the renowned architectural practice, Foster + Partners, which, for the permanent exhibition structure, assigned Marzorati Ronchetti.

The Blackest Black
Posted
Thursday, 05.11.2015

UK firm Surrey NanoSystems produces Vantablack, the current record holder for the least-reflective material.

 "There are probably 50 shades of black, if not more. But sometimes, and especially where physicists are concerned, even the blackest black isn’t black enough.

For many years, NASA has used a black paint manufactured by the international aerospace corporation Lord that has a reflectivity of just 3.5%. That’s several per cent lower than conventional black pigments. Dubbed Z306, it was applied to the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as other NASA instruments, to reduce stray light from the Sun, Moon, Earth and indeed the telescope’s own housing. Without it, all those images of distant galaxies and novae might not have appeared quite so spectacular."

Glengarry Glen Ross is a 1992 independent dramatic film, adapted by David Mamet from his acclaimed 1984 Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning play of the same name. The film depicts two days in the lives of four real estate salesmen and how they become desperate when the corporate office sends a representative to "motivate" them by announcing that, in one week, all except the top two salesmen will be fired. The film, like the play, is notorious for its use of profanity, leading the cast to jokingly refer to the film as "Death of a Fuckin' Salesman". The actual title of the film comes from the names of two of the real estate developments being peddled by the salesmen characters (Glengarry Highlands and Glen Ross Farms).

We are all global citizens of a global community. Our identity transcends geography or political borders and that the planetary human community is interdependent and whole; humankind is essentially one.

A person who is outside their home country because they suffer or fear persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, or political opinion; or because they are a member of a persecuted social category of persons; or because they are fleeing a war is called a refugee.

A refugee has thus lost her or his ability to speak as a ‘We’, and is ultimately subjected to a decision that the polity, and the polity alone, will take – including a decision of non-admission. We as world citizens should care for a political future and struggle for that reality.

Human Freedom Index

 

The Human Freedom Index presents the state of human freedom in the world based on a broad measure that encompasses personal, civil, and economic freedom. Human freedom is a social concept that recognizes the dignity of individuals and is defined here as negative liberty or the absence of coercive constraint. Because freedom is inherently valuable and plays a role in human progress, it is worth measuring carefully. The Human Freedom Index is a resource that can help to more objectively observe relationships between freedom and other social and economic phenomena, as well as the ways in which the various dimensions of freedom interact with one another.

The report is co-published by the Cato Institute, the Fraser Institute, and the Liberales Institut at the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom.

Capitalism vs Socialism: The 1984 Leonard Peikoff Debate

 

Leonard Peikoff is an intellectual giant. In roughly 25 minutes he unapologetically outlines in entirety the philosophical case for a laissez-faire capitalist society and swats away the socialist arguments with an ease indicative of a man who (to paraphrase Philosophy: Who Needs It?) has achieved the fullest understanding of his beliefs, the fullest confidence in his knowledge and his ability to express them, and the fullest certainty of the moral rightness of both.

And if you want to know why free market capitalism today is being assaulted on all fronts, it’s because its supposed advocates cannot and will not claim that same understanding, confidence, and moral authority.

Libertarians who criticize him because of a certain interview with Bill O’Reily (which will warrant another post) that he participated in would do well to watch this debate and reevaluate their position on a man who deserves nothing but to be held in the highest regard as a defender of freedom and a champion for human life. 

He’s a man who can be a education to us all — so watch the debate if you want.
