We’re on our way out of the renaissance and into the fin de siècle by way of Genova, Aix en Provence and a gypsy caravan in Burgundy. Our chariot is packed to the gills (well done Ben) and spartapuss is in his new urban tote. To the sea!

"The fact that our friends who were creative people totally got it, but the business-y type people we spoke with were totally baffled by it, was a strong sign to us that this was something worth doing."

Yancey Strickler, on starting Kickstarter (via maxistentialist)

Monte Carlo. Lunch stop. I have genuinely never even imagined a super-yacht with a helicopter on it, and room for two speedboats in the bottom.

You can imagine the conversations that we had after seeing this….thing…over sandwiches and cola.

As I said at the time, I am both repulsed and aroused, disgusted and attracted. A juxtaposition of emotions inspiring fierce battles within my mind. My soul. I came close to a deadly sin there, I tell ya.

But as I’ve never been to a super-rich tax haven playground, it was rather exciting to be there, and indeed to see with my own eyes not just one super-yacht (tho only one had the helicopter) but many. Taunting me. Which I must not rise to.

Also, I mostly recognised this strangely nature-free miniplace from years of watching other people play Grand Prix on PSX.

Nice sandwich.

Ivan PuigArtificial Growths (2008).

I saw the picture before the title and thought “sinking,” not “growing.” I am pleased with the discrepancy.

"The Zapatista conception of nationhood is a fluid one. It is malleable in the hands of each individual. Engaging a diversity of tactics in the struggle against…pervasive oppression is not only pragmatic, but it indicates that the refusal to be limited by ideological schisms is the future of a decentralized, autonomous liberation movement."

Subcomandante Marcos and the Zapatista Movement: Land, Nationhood, and Autonomy

Exactly.

The Savannah Project by Price Street Projects in Savannah, Georgia, USA

As a port city, Savannah has an abundance of obsolete shipping containers. Artist Julio Garcia repurposed two of these containers to create his residence and studio in the Savannah woods.
