Parks Project is a brand that proposes to use their business to help solve some of the problems facing our parks. "It all started a few years ago, when we joined up with the National Park Service to do volunteer days," they told us. "We learned there was much more to do in supporting our public lands during a time of budget cuts and low youth involvement. According to the NPCA there has been more than a 7%, or $173 million reduction in the account to operate national parks and more than a 12%, or $364 million reduction in the total budget for the National Park Service over the last five years in today’s dollars. Ouch. Could we use business to solve problems in our parks?

Geoff McFetridge grabs my attention. At the local coffee and surf shop a few months back, a mural of Geoff’s work went up, a static mapping of his already brilliant animation about the impressive 100% traceable down standard Patagonia employs for their uber-popular products. The animation got us thinking, not only about the way brands communicate with consumers, but also how the brands we wear everyday wear on the world around us.

Pre-Conscience/Conscience, or PCS/CS for short, is an experimental art series by fashion photographer Julien Vallon who has clients such as Kanye West, Vogue, L’Officiel Brasil and Adidas. This artful nude series is “a long reflection on subconscious movement.” Julien explains: “During several hours, according to Jung’s precepts, I try to open the inside world of my models to reveal their true identity through their own movement, until each impulse becomes natural.”

The 1970s must have been a weird time. I wouldn't really know because I wasn't born in the '70s, but it seemed like a time where a lot of shit was being worked out. Musically, you had your Bowies to disco, disco to punk, and a whole lotta Pink Floyd in there, too. Which is fine, some of it good. Hey, I love Fleetwood Mac. And did we mention cocaine? There was a lot of that. Fashion-wise, again, lots of shit was getting worked out.
