Woodstock ’69 Don’t know how many times I watched the original documentary of the 1969 Woodstock Festival. This was back in the late eighties, I was a late teen, wannabe musician. That film documented a unique, historic moment of music… Continue Reading →

Instagram? No, Autochrome.

These arresting ethereal images seem to be the product of contemporary art direction heavy on nostalgic whimsy. In fact they are from 1913. These are autochromes by one artistically inclined engineer, Lieutenant Colonel Mervyn O’Gorman, of his niece[?] in Lulworth… Continue Reading →

[Generation] Logo

Love, love, love this song. It’s “old” now, from 2007, back when the hipster movement was just starting to gain traction around the world. Ironic and witty. Your gran’s got her own logo.

Arlo Parks. Cola.

Beautiful

Espanish gitana Barcelones. K te cagas.

I prefer her track Malamente but this _video_ is a hum-dinger. Perhaps this more downbeat and mantra-like song helps the cinematically stylised symbolism shine through. Like a flamethrower.

Google owns .dev

Don’t use the .dev TLD (any more) for local dev work. Use .test instead. Google now owns/controls the .dev TLD, Chrome and Firefox are forcing HTTPS connections and local dev work is now at least tricky using the old localhost-dev-site on a .dev TLD… Continue Reading →

Banksy made a Simpsons intro? Yup.

Missed this one from a few years back. Where was I? NYT wrote up on how it got done in this article: ‘The Simpsons’ Explains Its Button-Pushing Banksy Opening. Fabulous.

The Rich Man’s Frug

Who knew The Frug was a dance craze of the sixties? Perhaps you’ve seen the 1969 Shirley MacLaine movie Sweet Charity the above gem comes from? Nor me.
