Jeg Liker This American Life

februar 27, 2012

Riktig bra radio! Hvert show har et nytt tema – The European Debt Crisis, Fan Conventions, etc. Formen er et underlig sted mellom nyheter, skjønnlitteratur og dokumentar. Fungerer som kuk i kram snø! (Les: Temmelig jævla bra!)

This American Life

Stor Big Up til Janic F.H. for dette tipset!

‘Knuckle takes us inside their brutal, secretive and exhilarating bare-knuckle fighting lives. Chronicling a history of violent feuding between rival families, the story focuses on two brothers as they fight for their reputations and the honour of their family name.

Brutal, yet captivating and ultimately moving, this unforgettable documentary offers an exclusive insight into the world of Irish Travellers and the lengths they will go to protect their family.’

Ikke fan av denne typen boksing – ikke noe nobelt over dette. Men et interessant innblikk i denne kulturen er det nok…

Guts and Glory: The Golden Age of American Football, 1958-1978

august 24, 2011

‘In 1958, sports photographer Neil Leifer took the picture of Alan Ameche’s game-winning «Sudden Death» touchdown. This game, called «The Greatest Ever Played», signaled football’s emergence as America’s new national pastime. This title collects some the best of Leifer’s best, culled from over 10,000 rolls of film on the sport.’

Mye fint å se også for ikke-fans av football…

Ted Sorensen on How to Write a Good Speech

januar 5, 2011

Ted Sorenson skrev tross alt talene til JFK… Virket som en bra fyr, også (døde noen måneder før årskiftet).

Nyttige tanker å hente her!

Jeg Liker BBCs A History of The World

november 9, 2010

A History of The World

‘At the heart of the project is the BBC Radio 4 series A History of the World in 100 objects. 100 programmes, written and narrated by Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum, and focusing on 100 objects from the British Museum’s collection.

The programmes will travel through two million years from the earliest object in the collection to retell the history of humanity through the objects we have made. Each week will be tied to a particular theme, such as ‘after the ice age’ or ‘the beginning of science and literature’, and the programmes will broadcast in three blocks, in January, May and September.’

Veldig fengende!

Jeg Liker Retro Fonts

november 7, 2010

Retro Fonts av Gregor Stawinski

‘Retro Fonts is a fantastic compilation of over 400 of the best retro fonts from 1830 to the end of the 20th century. The fonts are presented in the style of old type specimen books as alphabets with sample words/phrases, shown opposite classic examples of the fonts in use in their historical context.
Arranged chronologically into eight sections representing different stylistic eras, each with an introduction discussing the typography of that era, the fonts range from Art Deco, Bauhaus and Swiss through to Sixties, Disco and Punk. Featuring both familiar fonts and lesser-known examples ripe for rediscovery, this is a unique source of inspiration for all graphic designers and typographers. The accompanying CD contains 222 copyright-free fonts.’

Ikke noe å tenke over en gang… Kjøp!

Jeg Liker Penguin Books’ Great Ideas Series

august 19, 2010

‘Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves – and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization, and helped make us who we are.’

Dannelse! Og bra omslagsdesign. Den femte og siste serien er snart å få kjøpt.
