If you like the Strokes, you'll like The White Stripes even more. Happy and delicious.

Awesome stuffs to be sure!!

Surly you're aware that I created colored bacon, purple bacon is a big part of that!
But hey, that was wayyy back in 2010. Here's a close up, try not to salivate on your ipad...

Interesting colored bacon lore... much thanks & love for my interview with AOL, colored bacon was coined rainbow bacon. And on the west coast in Cali it is also known as pride bacon ...thanks to Hilton!

:)

But that's not purple specific enough, I want to do something typographic.

More l8tr sk8tr...

I always wondered, was it purple or just looking for purple people to eat?

Thanks.

A friend just gave me some old vinyl as thanks for a bit of pro amico design, one of which was WEDNESDAY MORNING 3AM by Simon and Garfunkel.

I had never heard of it, not surprisingly as I discovered (thanks to some googling), as it was their first album, released and ignored during the British Invasion of 1964. However, it was re-released a couple of years later, after their record company had added orchestration to The Sound of Silence, and that became a huge hit—which I was familiar with.

So I went straight to that track, and yes indeed, the album I had was the ’64, with the plain voice-and-guitar-only Sound of Silence. I had long known about how Columbia had jazzed up the song with strings and drums, but had never once heard the original, until yesterday. It’s nice!

A bonus is the awesome cover design, with its friggin’ huge distressed stencil lettering (NOT a font!), and the Cinemascope shot of the boys in suits and ties on a subway platform.

That's awesome! The text & the jacket art seems to be totally NYC!!

Well worth a bit of pro amico design.

Love that ampersand!

With all the sabre-rattling in N. Korea, there is only one appropriate song right now: Black Sabbath's War Pigs.

Quick Crew — China Concept 2013 (02:06). More of a cool dance video with an interesting back track, but I do quite like it right now. Fifty bucks says 5star does too…

I started to watch, but couldn’t stand the voiceover and cutting all over the place.
In general I detest documentaries, and would rather they show the musicians performing in long takes.
But I did like Buena Vista Social Club, Standing in the Shadows of Motown and The Future is Unwritten.

I'm doing the Stones North American Tour. Fun - and hard. Using Blair ITC for most of it, looks better to me than many of the new pretenders, Sweet Sans, Aviano, Idlewild, et al. I used Tungsten Narrow Semibold for the teaser campaign. Works well LARGE on signage.
Currently listening to 4'33'' looped.

John, this combined with the description of the 20-foot+ space around your desk over at the other place I am beginning to imagine that your office has a vaulted ceiling and would be very disappointed to discover that you do not have an organ in there as well.

Most everything about Soul Train is AWESOME!

My musical tastes can hardly compare in excitement to those of many people here; I am listening to such tunes as

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VffQceYVlxU
Germany's 1968 ESC entry, composed by Horst Jankowski (of Ein Schwarzwaldfahrt fame)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmdvzl9hcOI
A cover version of a song based on an old folk song about a farmer who lost his only cow... (not available on mobile devices)

Gottfried August Homilius (1714–1785)

The album Days by Real Estate has been my favorite music discovery of the year so far.

‘On the organ of the Great or Jacobijner Church […]’

Not a ghostly performance by Homilius himself, of course.

Bach's cello suites are absolutely perfect for type-drawing. I strongly recommend Roel Dieltiens' magnificent 2010 recording on Etcetera, on Baroque cello. (Not to be confused with his 1991 recording of the same work on Accent. No good.)

Magical three hours of drawing to 2:30-2:45 of Voodoo Chile.

Doesn’t sound like a loop to me.
