I need to loose weight, jetting around the world in business class isn't helping.
Especially NOT HELPING AT ALL is that "in between snack" that SAS is serving. Danish smörrebröd, goddamit they're tasty.
(I had 4 last time, and swollowed them down with equally many glasses of Bollinger)
But hey, I'd rather be chubby and in business than skinny and in couch.
(I'm aiming for "Skinny in Business" for 2009, not very likely though)
Lee Edelkoort is an amazing woman, I've said that every time after listening to her, I know.
But anyone who serves mini sandwiches and a smoothie like this, suggests investing in bioplastics with the same ease as she's delivering the most mindblowing future analysis in the universe deserves to mentioned more than once.
She also said "Yellow is the new Pink and that shirts will take over a lot of the sales from jersey" (I wont go into why)
Two weeks earlier I picked up a frayed, sunbleached yellow vintage Brooks Brothers OCBD in NYC.
I rule, it's as simple as that.

Russian Art/Letterature Journal, much like Jar Ptitka. Published in Berlin
I've come to understand that Berlin was Da Shit in publishing russian
litterature and journals in the 1920's.
(I guess publishing anything remotly more funny than the obituaries in
post-revoloution Russia wasn't so good for your health)
The inside is so stunning you would go all topsy turvey.
Granma, if you got interenet (wireless?) in heaven and is checking this
out, I wished you would have told me about these when you where alive!
(Food for the Heart)Published in 1936, first edition.
When I started looking through it, I was amazed to find so many different bookmarks.
Everything was used, a small french flag, prayercards, letters and notes
with scribbles. Yes, I admit it's totally gay to publish this kind of
romantic frilly stuff. But hey, look me in the eyes and tell me your mind
doesn't start wondering. She obviously cared for this book so much, it's
beautiful. (Look closely on the letter, that handwriting doesn't come ease,
best font ever!)
down to business with some seriously pretty art. Here's the deal. My
grandmother passed away some weeks ago, and clearing out her place I got
hold of some rather amazing books and magazines. She was a photographer and
gramps was an accomplished artist. (No pressure at all..) First up,
pictures from one of the most important art-critic magazines ever, "Verve".
First issue (pictured here) came out 1937 and featured a specially designed
cover by Matisse, lito's by Leger & Miro (!) Photos by ManRay, Cartier

Another amazing early monthly journal.
"Zhar Ptitka". It's like the russian version of Verve, only perhaps not as much attitude.
1921 in Russia was not a good place to have a ballsy attitude I guess.
Never the less, cover by Bilibin, reproductions (heliograph printed) by Arkhipov and other great ones.
This stuff was seriously ahead of it's time. (I think..what do I know about russian post revouloutionary art?)
