The Quiet Life with Andy Mueller

Design // Thursday, January 08, 2015

Juxtapoz Hyperreal: Connection - Alyssa Monks

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 08, 2015
We need to feel like we belong to this experience, we need to know our place, we need to know where we fit. We need to feel that we're accepted for who we are. So the goal you may think is to, get a show, get press or to make money or to have fame. But it's not, the thing we all really want is to feel connected.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 08, 2015

For Charlie Hebdo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 07, 2015
We are deeply saddened and troubled by the news that most of us in the United States woke up to this morning: three masked gunman storming into the offices of Paris-based satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people – including two policemen. According to the Guardian, the attack occurred at "11.30am on Wednesday after the magazine’s staff had gathered for their weekly editorial meeting." How numbingly sad about it is to hear such news, watching this event be reported from some of our favorite newsrooms in the world. You feel a connection even though the publications are vastly different. These were journalists as targets, working in a country with free speech. Working under the pretense of free speech, controversial content is meant to spark debate, effectively and metaphorically define the tide of the times. It is meant to incite discourse, not violence. Today, we send our thoughts and respect to journalists around the world who continue to publish, driven by the power of free speech.

We were lucky enough, along with Slow Culture and the Ace Hotel, to be part of a special art show, "Contemporary Psychedelic," that featured art inspired by the film that opened at the Downtown LA Ace Hotel this week.

LIFE Magazine Archives: Behind the Scenes at Disney Studios

Photography // Wednesday, January 07, 2015
Going through the LIFE archives is one of the most enjoyable experience a human can have. Seriously. We came across this really amazing series from a 1953 article titled 'A Silver Anniversary for Walt and Mickey," (that's 25 years to you and I), which captured some behind-the-scenes moments at the Disney studios with animators and Mr Disney himself.
