Courtney Barnett "Pedestrian At Best" dir by Charlie Ford

Music // Thursday, February 05, 2015
Some people are scared of clowns. Some people don't like to see sad clowns. And we are sure some people will be on the flipside and like to see Courtney Barnett dressed up like a clown for the track "Pedestrian At Best" that will be on her forthcoming LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit is out March 24 via Mom + Pop. For any song that begins with the lyrics, "I love you I hate you," we approve.

Chris Berens “Nethermoor” @ Roq La Rue, Seattle

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 05, 2015
Chris Berens is a Dutch painter whose work features a fantastical mélange of exotic creatures and 18th century imagery in soft focus. Startling, photorealistic, and distorted; his narratives feature totem-like animals and childlike people floating through dreamy European cityscapes, or decrepit ships in stormy seas shimmering as if in a fevered dream. Berens show opens on February 5, and runs through the 28th.

Sam Haskins' Levis Shoot

Erotica // Thursday, February 05, 2015
Yesterday, while looking through the work of legendary South African photographer Sam Haskins we came across this shoot he did for Levis in the 1970s. At the time, Levis had a traveling exhibition of denim decorated by their customers and a competition along with it. Unfortunately (but not surprisingly) Levis executives got cold feet over the nudes and the photographs were never used commercially. (via)
