Image of the Day

Jerry Hall by Ezra Petronio, creative director and publisher of self service magazine. An exhibition of Petronio's polaroids opens tonight at (?!) Dallas Contemporary.



Mica Levi,

(Micachu and The Shapes) take time out from recording to discuss a recent collaboration with the London Sinfionetta. (Order the album, Chopped & Screwed, from Rough Trade.)

Manly Arts

Glenn O'Brien on the topic of how to be a man, which also happens to be the title of a forthcoming book, How To Be A Man by Glenn O'Brien (Rizzoli).

You know what, actually? JUST CLICK HERE TO WATCH IT, because while Jay-Z's personal mythology may now include having a blog, it apparently does not include clean code for embedding video.
