New Shirt x SOPHIE Remix "Straight Men Suck"

New thoughts over beats by SOPHIE. One off her new album Oil Of Every Pearl's Un Insides and the other the song "Yeah Right" by Vince Staples and Kendrick that I hadn't heard before. You know I have to keep you on my journey.

Straight men suck I can't say enough
If you ain't man enough to say get your weight up

Independent, Fly Rare Car Dealer, Arthur Kar Talks To Ssense

This guy's life and work is something else. When thinking about people who freaked their whole shit, you gotta bring Arthur up.

Ssense: How does a 16-year-old kid get hired at Porsche? 

Arthur Kar: I got the job through perseverance. I visited the owner of the garage in Paris six times in a month telling him, “I wanna work for you, I wanna work for you, I wanna work for you,” until I got the job. I was at Porsche for four years, and then at age 20, I stopped because I realized I wanted to own cars. I couldn’t stay working as a mechanic if I wanted to do that, so I left and decided to buy and sell cars, little by little. 

Ss: You did what you had to do, and it paid off. 

AK: Well, I enjoyed being that 16-year-old guy washing the car. I still am that guy. I have just as much respect for the guy that changes the tires, the oil, that washes the car, as the guy who sells or drives the most beautiful car in the world. They’re all the same people because they all have the same passion and essentially, they do the same work.

Kilo Kish Talks To Ssense

If there's an artist nowadays taking them fucking pics and doing her damn thing out here, it's Kilo Kish.

The tendency to be easily distracted is a trademark of our generation. And so few of us value alone time or understand the benefits of it. 

Alone time kind of fucks with you if you're a millennial. You have this crazy fear of missing out on things. When you're alone all you have are your own opinions and we're such a groupthink culture. You need to ask yourself, "Wait, how do I actually feel about this?" What I grapple with now is the other extreme. I spend so much time alone that I have to force myself to live within reality. I have to force myself to be like, "Oh, fuck. I need to do social media.” It's really strange. What I like to explore in art is, what's acceptable to the public? What's not acceptable? What are the different ways I can get around this stereotypical way of presenting myself? It's a never ending conversation.

Heron Preston Collaboration Items With NYC Sanitation

I'm late but I really like what Heron did for NY fashion week. You think about all the corny shit someone so affiliated could be churning out and there's something very noble and special about going another way instead. Still infusing taste, meaning, quality goods etc. I'll spare you the details here but if you enjoy the aesthetic and care about the why, go here.
