Mr. Ocean’s album is expected to remain exclusive to Apple for only two weeks before becoming more widely available, according to that person, who was not authorized to discuss the release plans and therefore spoke on condition of anonymity.
I respect Mike heavy. Watch the video here cause I don't know how to embed Facebook videos.
I'm heartbroken over the beautiful, growing, living, breathing, laughing lives we keep losing at the hands of a fucking police officer. The man or woman who voluntarily has one of, if not the hardest job in the world. Yet a job sacred, an anointed position from whatever the fuck God you believe in. The job of protecting our life, the job of keeping us out of harm's way, the job of watching over us so we can all live a civilized life in America. But this is the experience we get? Kids being kids, young adults just learning what it is to fucking live, from making mistakes, to getting it right, from family men, to brothers, dads, hard workers, people hustling to live, kids told they weren't shit all their life. The senseless loss is staggering every time. Every fucking time. I'm gonna always do what I can to uplift but this shit has me down.
I was gobstruck, is the word. I was absolutely floored and honored, and I almost felt like crying. I think that Kanye and I embraced each other, and everyone else was sort of like that — they were all high-fiving me and hugging me. There are experiences like that in the arts where somebody actually gets what you're doing. Not that your goal is to communicate — it's more self-enlightenment. But at that moment I realized that Kanye and I were on the same page completely. He was an art student, and speaking to him was like speaking to the brightest of my peers.
This is so dope all I keep thinking about is how I'm not in Northern Italy at the moment and can't over in time.
Visitors can experience this work of art by walking on it from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which is framed by The Floating Piers. The mountains surrounding the lake offer a bird’s-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unnoticed angles and altering perspectives. Lake Iseo is located 100 kilometers east of Milan and 200 kilometers west of Venice. “Like all of our projects, The Floating Piers is absolutely free and accessible 24 hours a day, weather permitting,” said Christo. “There are no tickets, no openings, no reservations and no owners. The Floating Piers are an extension of the street and belong to everyone.” A 3-kilometer-long walkway was created as The Floating Piers extend across the water of Lake Iseo. The piers are 16 meters wide and approximately 35 centimeters high with sloping sides. The fabric continues along 2.5 kilometers of pedestrian streets in Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio.
“Those who experience The Floating Piers will feel like they are walking on water – or perhaps the back of a whale,” said Christo. “The light and water will transform the bright yellow fabric to shades of red and gold throughout the sixteen days.”
The guy's pieces and energy around the product is very interesting to me.
“I didn’t want to show again in Paris,” he says. “I wanted to move to a different city, do something different.” He considered Milan, then Pitti extended an invitation. “I had never been to Italy,” he says. “I wanted to go to Florence for the Uffizi gallery. I wanted to see Leonardo and my favourite Botticelli.”
One of his inspirations for this new collection is the director and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini. “Now is the right moment to think about what is Europe,” says Rubchinskiy. “Pasolini was anti-globalist and thought it was good to keep the spirit of Italy in Italy, of France in France, of Russia in Russia. I think it’s the right moment to remember Pasolini, and to think about what is Europe.”
