The Death Of Uncool

november 26, 2009

«As people become increasingly comfortable with drawing their culture from a rich range of sources—cherry-picking whatever makes sense to them—it becomes more natural to do the same thing with their social, political and other cultural ideas. The sharing of art is a precursor to the sharing of other human experiences, for what is pleasurable in art becomes thinkable in life.»

Brian Eno

Interessant liten kommentar av Brian Eno i Prospect Magazine.

Ikke nødvendigvis enig i ‘the death of uncool’, enkelte ting er fortsatt teit uavhengig av kontekst, men enig i at kulturen viser vei for politikk, økonomi, sosiale institusjoner, etc. Kultur definerer hvem vi er, hvem vi vil være, hvor vi kommer fra og hvor vi vil hen.

Jeg Liker We English

november 23, 2009

«Simon Roberts travelled throughout England in a motorhome between August 2007 and September 2008, for this portfolio of large-format tableaux photographs of the English at leisure. Photographing ordinary people engaged in a variety of pastimes, Roberts finds beauty in the mundane; the result is an elegiac exploration of identity, attachment to home and land, and the relationship between people and place. This is the most significant contribution to the photography of England in recent years.» –Chris Boot, Publisher

Bra for alle med og uten dannelse, for de som har lest alt og de som kunne tenke seg å lese mer…

Eller man kan bryne seg på klassikeren.

David Cronenberg

‘I’m just observing the world. I was born into it, like you were, and then I found out there were some really disturbing aspects to being alive, like the fact that you weren’t going to be alive forever – that bothered me.’

Sub Mariner SweaterSub Mariner Sweater

“The Submariner Sweater was War Office issue to the Royal Navy in both World Wars. In the 1950s motorcyclists adopted them to wear under a Barbour or Belstaff jacket to keep out the cold. They used be available from army surplus stores until about 10 years ago until original supplies “dried up”.  These hard-wearing sweaters are manufactured by a family firm in Nottinghamshire, England, using pure new wool and will last for many years.”

Fra f.eks The Garbstore.

Hell yeah!
