And then TEXTE ZUR KUNST rolls in from Europe again and proceeds to blow our minds (again). Beguiling, always, here, “speculation”, conceptual possibilities, mental zeitgeist, contemporary kultur.

MOOD, music and food. Issue 4: The Punk Issue. Home brewing, flamingods, Minneapolis’ CC Club, hangover breakfasts. (Um, it’s pretty interesting, but not very punk.)

Spring is here! I’m pretty sure! Here’s a quick blast of some of the fashion journals flowing through recently….


SYSTEM, Issue #2, love these guys: Comme des Garçons, Joe Einhorn’s Fancy retail, Lynn Wyatt’s Texas couture, and the infamous John Casablancas of Elite Model Management.


POP magazine, Issue 30, interview with Pussy Riot in Paris, photographed by Juergen Teller (if you go for that kind of thing).


WORN, Issue 18, “The Underwear Issue”, everybody’s. (We love these guys.)


BON International, Spring/Summer 2014, “Freedom”: Cultural appropriation, Prada and fourth wave (fashion) feminism (!?), the Hong Kong art scene, perfume scents and sex.

S MAGAZINE induces feelings of goodness in me. It’s not that it “turns me on”, so to speak, but that when I leaf through its pages I feel alive. Is that sexual? I have become more open to certain facets of my sexuality looking through S (often alone) over the years. This new issue has a photograph of a man tongue-kissing what looks to be a marble sculpture that can only be described as an “amorphous blob shape”, or perhaps a giant man-size limp penis—-some kind of sensual monster sans form. The man caresses tenderly while kissing. The photo is from an artist book titled, “Wrong”. There’s another photo of a woman tenderly holding her poodle—-which has the face of a primate. It’s terrifying. The level of “interest” both these photos engendered in me is both mildly troubling, and invigorating. I don’t know what it says about me. This is what S Magazine does. There’s also an insert from the filmmaker Jørgen Leth (who I’m a big fan of) that I find a little “troubling,” though many other photos in the issue I’m perfectly okay and fine with. As the editors note, this is part of "…the human form and the human condition…ideas of what is physical, sensual, and figurative”. Part of what S Magazine stirs in me. I do not call it sex. But perhaps it is.

WATAD MAGAZINE (WTD), Issue 05, TRANSIENT. "In an age both fleeting and transformational what is permanency? It seems ridiculous that our structures do not respond to our lifestyle. Is it time to look into what it means to exist in this transitional state? To develop varied spaces that fulfill our ever-increasing need for temporary snatches of life; some that can move, collapse or disappear without a trace. Only to re-appear when needed".
