Finish Watching This Kanye Talk With Zane Lowe, Here's Part 2, 3 and 4

I don't want to say something crazy just completely out of my ass like I want to right now. All I know is it's wild hearing this guy be who he is and still not be able to get his true passion out, which seems to be design through clothing and footwear, and products, and experiences. It's just super interesting. So much is to be said of Jay's continued achievements and accolades but it's rare we hear the other side from those already successful pushing for more. The struggle, the moments before the breakthroughs. I just love this rap shit so much when it goes to such a real place. Ambition is something else. Great ideas and making a person feel differently because of something you can have your hand in is contagious. This guy is high on the feeling. I hope they give him what he wants and just let him give. I don't know maybe I'm bugging.

Apple's Head Designer Jony Ive Talks To USA Today

Great article.

"I would love, love, love to show you what we are working on now, but I'd lose my job," Ive says with an impish grin. "But you've got a sense about perhaps not what we are building, but the way we approach problems as a group," he says. 
"About how we go back again and again until something is just right. I do sense that people can tell we really care. We make products that we think are right, that maybe you can't easily justify or evaluate, but they feel right."

Frank Ocean For Oyster Magazine, Cover Shoot/Interview

Photos by Nabil.

Frank Ocean did not want to do this interview. (In fact, for the first hour he thought I had called only to discuss the feature, and didn't realise I was actually interviewing him.) Sorry, Frank! "That’s cool," he said. "I'm happy to talk about whatever. Just make it good." Over the course of two hours we discussed all the usual things you might talk about with a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter — like the function of pants, Oprah's facial expressions, and selling crack in high school.

"Station To Station" Art's Big Road Trip (Video)

Such a great thing.

Four years ago multimedia artist Doug Aitken began thinking about the experience of viewing art, and watching movies, and listening to music, and how it all seemed the same: confined within the walls of a museum, gallery, concert venue, or movie theater. “Things created within art or music or film or architecture, they’re often restrained by the system that surrounds them,” Aitken says. So he came up with Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening. It’s what he calls a “liquid art platform,” a constantly moving and evolving venue with no set parameters for experiencing the art. It sounds abstract, but, put simply, it’s art on wheels. On September 6 a train will depart Washington, D.C., and over a three-week span it will make its way to Oakland, California. Filled with artists, musicians, chefs, and seemingly everyone in between, the circus of players will collaborate on site-specific performances at each of the nine stops along the way. The shows will take place at the train stations and other locations, and a few will even happen on the train. Other times, Aitken says, they’ll stop spontaneously and perform for anyone who might just happen to be present.
