I like timelapses. I used to make my own when studying theology at Starbucks, but really it was just a fun thing to do…not really anything artsy about it. When I see a timelapse that catches my attention…I post it…like Zan Butler’s Anchorage and now this one titled “Fall” from Jamie Scott.
Apparently to make the film, Scott filmed in 15 different spots around Central Park, two times a week, for six months using the same gear in the same place creating an amazing time-lapse that shows us the color’s of fall.
Maybe you’ve heard of The Shops at Target before – if not – watch this video here. It’s a really cool project that the big shopping retailer has given small shops the chance to manufacture custom items on a massive scale and affordable price. I’ve looked into it before, but nothing was really catching my fancy to actually jump up off the couch and run to Target to buy some. But today - I found out that Odin, man’s one stop shop for style in New York, is partnering with Target to bring a line of “plaid shirts, black and navy jackets, and accessories” to stores around the country under The Shops banner.
From owners, Paul Biradi and Eddy Chai:
“It was really important to us that this collection measure up in terms of quality and style. There are obviously challenges when creating an affordable collection, but Target’s design team embraced those challenges in order to execute our vision.”
The items will be released Sept. 9, and I might be there opening day with a shopping cart. I’m always on the lookout for affordable clothing without losing quality in my style, but it’s hard to always get away with the best deal. This is a win in my book.
Watch a video of the lookbook for Odin @ Target:
Chances With Wolves is a radio show on East Village Radio out of New York City.
With the tagline “Repping hard for haunting beauty, magic, and the weird” CWW brings us the music that they love the most.
I didn’t know anything of CWW before I watched this video from Cool Hunting…
I looked everywhere for an actual download of one of their shows – all they had was the ability to stream it, and I couldn’t handle that. I needed a copy in my iTunes where I could sync it to my phone so I could listen on the go.
Yesterday I finally found on the Internet Archive about the first 9 of them. I haven’t looked for anymore since this will hold me over for a while seeing as each radio show is over 2 hours long. The thing I respect most about CWW is they don’t repeat music, as they said in the video. That takes a lot of time and searching to find good tunes to put out over 30 tracks each Monday. They’ve done this 161 times and are still going strong with new tunes.
Listen to them. You’ll see a lot of eclectic stuff in there…but it’s all good…you don’t mind…because it’s amazing.
Check them out over at their blog.
Every time I’ve been to NYC – I remember I always wanted to move there and get a job as a bike courier. I mean…it’s basically getting paid to exercise. Nothing wrong with that. There’s something that entices me to the idea of riding a bike all around a beautiful city and getting to know its in and outs and meeting people for just a couple seconds and possibly never seeing them again.
But…honestly after watching this documentary…I don’t think I would like it as much as I had hoped. First off…my illusion of bike couriers is all wrong. My thought was that young kids – like myself – would do it as a fun job, you know, earn a couple extra bucks, enjoy being outside, riding bikes, etc…but really…it’s the opposite.
If you have the time…watch all of the documentary…its worth it.
Watch the rest of it after the continuation…
