Beatnik Bandit to Show at World’s Oldest Concours d’ Elegance

There’s a couple of intriguing things happening here, first it’s interesting to note the Hillsborough Concours d’ Elegance is the longest running Concours in the world and perhaps the best kept secret in the world of car shows.

Full text: T Bone Burnett rips Big Tech “surveillance capitalists” in

The apps, books, movies, music, TV shows, and art are inspiring our some of the most creative people in business this month An award-winning team of journalists, designers, and videographers who tell brand stories through Fast Company’s distinctive lens Music industry veteran T Bone Burnett has no big love for Big Tech. In a scorching keynote speech this week at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, the Grammy- and Oscar-winning musician/producer spoke out against the growing power of Silicon Valley giants like Google and Facebook while affirming the importance of artists’ rights. “Artists create conscience,” the O Brother, Where Art Thou? producer said. “The artists are our only hope.” I am going to begin today with a quote from Marshall McLuhan from his 1962book, The Gutenberg Galaxy: “Instead of tending toward a vast Alexandrian library the world has become a computer, an electronic brain, exactly as an infantile piece of science fiction. And as our senses have gone outside us, Big Brother goes inside.” I would like to come to you today with a message of unity and love and peace, and I will try to get there by the end, but I have to begin by stating a fact that must be be...

There were varying reports as to why General Motors decided to keep the current model around for one

There were varying reports as to why General Motors decided to keep the current model around for one more year.  Some speculated that the launch of the C3 was intentionally delayed because Chevrolet had introduced the Camaro to its lineup in 1967.Although many critics and enthusiasts proclaimed that the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray would in fact be the first of an entirely new generation of Corvettes, it turned out that it would actually be the last – and most refined of the C2’s. Factually, however, most of it stemmed from the large levels of apprehension about Corvette’s successor, especially centered around issues with undesirable aerodynamics.  Zora Arkus-Duntov, who had been directly involved with the development of the second-generation Corvette and was now championing the third-gen, had demanded that more time in the wind tunnel be given to the new Corvette prototype. The early results of such testing on the prospective third-generation model had proven that the car had undesirable aerodynamics, an issue Duntov had hoped to clear up well before the new Corvette went into production. Not surprisingly, the 1967 Corvette proved to be the most sophisticated of all the Sting Ray mo...

From a sports car set covered in flowers by artist Andy Dixon for Versace to Etro’s Star Wars-inspired collection, Canali’s Black Edition apparel line debut to an intimate Cineclub held by footwear brand Santoni, we present the Wallpaper* picks of Milan Fashion Week Men’s S/S 2020… Tod’s: Set in the grounds of the grand Villa Necchi Campiglio, Tod’s presented a collection of fine menswear staples, giving each a luxury makeover. The collection was titled ’The Ride’ and consisted of pieces fit for a man who travels but also likes the exhilarating high driving a classic sports car gives when hitting top speed. A classic biker came in super soft tan leather with contesting racing stripes racing down its front, while a field jacket and vest came with multiple pockets making them perfect utility travel companion. Elsewhere, a tech fabric printed with graphic geological map lines was used for windbreakers and board shorts, and a car coat cane in lightweight suede. As always footwear was key – the classic Gommino was updated with an espadrille sole and sneakers appeared with suped-up soles reminiscent of the sleek lines of a sports car. Tod’s: Set in the grounds of the grand Villa...

Here is another look at the far-southern-Virginia town of Danville: once a thriving tobacco-and-textile center, now

Here is another look at the far-southern-Virginia town of Danville: once a thriving tobacco-and-textile center, now trying to figure out what to do after all the mills have shut down. In keeping with the previously announced intention to keep drawing connections, parallel themes, and lessons from the communities we visit, here are three aspects of Danville’s story worth noticing elsewhere, as boiled down as I can make them. A summary: Previously, I did several reports on Danville’s attempt to put its extensive (and beautiful) inventory of old mill buildings to modern use: “The Reinvention of Danville’s Downtown, Part 1,” “Danville’s Story, Part 2,” and “How Danville Avoided Omaha’s Mistake.” Deb Fallows has written about the involvement of Danville’s faith community (and others) in dealing with rural health issues (“A Regional Approach to Rural Health Challenges”), and about the exceptional new Y that has opened alongside the Dan River downtown ( “A Community Within a Community”). 1) The role of foundations—and foundations of a particular sort: Institutions called “community foundations” are well known, active, long-established, and important across the country. Each year, they ...

HEX Patrol Backpack review: Stylish and roomy functionality

While I love a good laptop messenger bag (like the Waterfield Executive Leather Messenger I reviewed), sometimes I just find backpacks to be easier to carry. That’s because I can have the weight evenly distributed on my back, and not just all on one shoulder. I’ve been wanting a good, high-quality backpack for my laptop and tablet for a while, but I never really looked seriously into it. Then the HEX Patrol Backpack just kind of showed up at my doorstep one day. I’ve honestly never heard of the brand before, so I looked it up and discovered the company was founded by two musicians living in Southern California, which is my neck of the woods. It’s a local company, so I was intrigued. I decided to give this backpack a go. Bottom line: The Hex Patrol Backpack is comfy and has plenty of room for laptops up to 17 inches in size, as well as your tablet and other essentials. The Galaxy Black Reflective color illuminates when exposed to light in the night or low-light conditions, helping to keep you safe. Again, I wasn’t expecting the HEX Patrol Backpack at all, but it has become one of my favorite bags to carry my mobile office everywhere. When I use any b...

The Righteous Gemstones Season One Episode 4 Review: “Wicked Lips” Finishes On a High Note

The terrific third act of “Wicked Lips” begins to realize The Righteous Gemstones’ abundant potential. “Wicked Lips” is akin to an amuse bouche of The Righteous Gemstones‘ deeper-seeded ideas and explorations; though one might expect that to occur in the first few episodes, there’s a lot more meat on the bones here than say, last week’s entertaining-but-gaudy “They Are Weak, He Is Strong”. More importantly, it accomplishes this by focusing on some of the show’s more shapeless characters, giving strong definition to characters like Amber and Kelvin in a rather impressive third act. There’s still a bit of tonal chicanery for The Righteous Gemstones to figure out, but “Wicked Lips” is a step in the right direction, the episode recalculating its own formula on the fly. What begins as severely dated comedy (cyber goth dancing!) eventually gives way to something much more ominous, as Danny McBride and his writing team begin to pull on the many, many loose threads left in the wake of the Gemstone empire. Baby Billy’s desperation to be integrated back into the business, Gideon and Scotty’s burgeoning plan to rip off the family, Chad’s inability to delete his emails… these stories all be...
