Its Nice That : Red Stripe remix a visit to the corner shop by rigging it out as a musical surprise.

Really, really nice installation. Reach for a Red Stripe and watch the bottles and boxes turn into instruments. It’s like some wonderful genie cursed the members of Stomp into exile as comestibles in a corner shop. Click the link at the end of the video to see some behind-the-scenes.

Thin Is Definitely In: CES Sees Launch of CST-01 E-Ink Watch – Core77.

Lovely, well-thought-out watch highlighting the potential of e-ink. Great typeface. You set the time through its charging stand, eliminating all buttons on the watch itself. Relatively cheap, too.

After over a year (two years?) of angrily perusing Harper’s, I’ve decided to cancel my subscription of many, many years. Since Lapham left, it’s become terrible. Ideological without wit, a poor sense of what  fiction is… even the book reviews are disappointing in that they’ve become too accessible. I’ve decided to reallocate my reading time to Lapham’s Quarterly, which is a godsend. Really, it is amazing. A boon to the world, and a friendly door to the great writings of the past.

Anyway, I went to the website to enter my request to cancel and noticed this graphic on the side:


And then I thought, I wonder where this comes from. Dumping into Google Images, I found it here:

An Exaltation of Larks, or The Venereal Game,by James Lipton

And Amazon has it.

If you don’t know about dragging images into Google, you should get to know it. Powerful and fun stuff.
