Top 10 - February 2013

  1. Uncertainty, luck and Black Swans – Yes, more anti-futures and this other stuff called reality. Designers, please wake up, you can’t invent the future.
  2. Danzig
  3. Coffee shops that sell comics and play Danzig and also happen to be a 5 minute walk from my house.
  4. Not being precious about sketching and drawing – Recently I’ve given up on the idea of having a proper sketchbook because it was stressing me out having to maintain one more thing and be precious and all art studenty about. In art school the sketchbook is your bible, your rifle and your car and you’re trained to love it and protect it and prune and preen it like an exotic breed. Its just paper though. Its the shit you make, not in what form it gets laid out, that matters.
  5. Dennis Busenitz – The man crush continues
  6. Chewy Cannon – This guy is basically the UK’s Busenitz and actually smiles when he lands the ball dropping tricks he pummels with
  7. Flights to non-states (like Kosovo) – One of my erstwhile homes Ljubljana was also one of the first places that you could fly to a non-country from a couple of years back. This is amazing, that you can fly to a non-state, and yet has a capital.
  8. The School of Life Stricty Secular Sermons
  9. Sweet potatoes
  10. Greenleaf – No Time Like Right Now! – Just when you think classic riffs don’t really matter, or that, you know, they’re cool and all, but I have to talk to my accountant today so whatever – the rock gods drop this nuke on us and have us begging for more six string salvation.
