Japanese animals really have restraint.


Antiques Web Show, Vol. 28 (A Double-dose of Afro-soul & Funk)

These records are both so good. They’ll keep you dancing all day long. African Scream Contest is a compilation of many bands from Benin and Togo, while Vodoun Effect is an sort of “Best of” album by the very talented and unknown Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou.

J.D. Salinger – A Sad Day

My whole life I’ve been told he was an angry drunk who hated people, but I never believed it.

Now that he’s gone, I know even more awful things will be said about J.D. Salinger in the coming weeks.

I will not believe a word.

In my mind, he was a private person who simply couldn’t deal with the fact that he would never be able to write something new without the world saying it wasn’t as good as The Catcher in the Rye. I mean, can you really blame him?

I’m sad today.

I sure hope he and Roald Dahl are hitting it off up there.

Hello Fwends and fwends of fwends AND fwends of fwends of fwends,

I’m doing a bit of shameless promotion here. I’ve been working with some friends who are starting up a submission-based triannual publication. They are all photographers as well as curators, editors and photo editors.

Here’s an excerpt on what it’s all about:

We, as Trifecta, are a submission-based triannual publication. We curate a collection of multimedia works by diverse artists and offer a broad range of perspectives on a simple idea. Our intent is to create a contained archive for collectors. Think “treasure box.”

Trifecta manufactures each individual archive by hand. We design the inside of the book around what you submit. We strive to work with our artists to create something unique, so we ask participants to be creative with the presentation of your submission and challenge us.

Each issue has a theme, which can be interpreted in any way you see fit. 

They’re accepting submissions now on the theme ” BAMBOOZLED” and you can find the full brief at 

It would be a great project to get involved in if anyone is interested in doing some new work!
