Nowness captures Malcolm Venville’s crusade to pose a single Question to the illustrious designer (Karl Lagerfeld) at His Alpine Exhibition.
“There aren’t many people who you’d endure several flights, two long train journeys, exceedingly early wake-up calls and a soggy McDonald’s hamburger dinner to spend one minute with—but that’s how powerful the pull of fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld can be. And that pilgrimage is exactly what director Malcolm Venville undertook for a brief encounter with the Chanel and Fendi designer, artist, photographer and one-man cultural phenomenon in St. Moritz in February, where the polymath was revealing an exhibition at Galerie Gmurzynska.” More via Nowness
A message from Sean Brown of Art of Reuse: “It would be next to impossible to squeeze every Neptune’s produced record into a single set, but alongside DJ Mike Rizzy, we’ve managed to narrow down some choice cuts into an hour long episode that includes a bit of everyone’s favorites. Diving back and forth from old to new, no one can deny the impact The Neptunes & N.E.R.D have on our generation – consider this a soundtrack to your Summer.”

Video: Nokia x Sundance – New America Noise
Nokia Music, a free music streaming service from Nokia that offers consumers free and unlimited access to playlists and songs on Nokia Lumia smartphones, today announced its partnership with Sundance Channel. The Nokia Music produced series will feature 6 short films created by some of the world’s most respected independent directors, including; Abteen Bagheri, Bob Harlow, Emily Kai Bock and Tyrone Le Bon.
Each film will take place in a different city and tell the story of music’s evolution in America while also capturing perspectives of music fans from all walks of life — resulting in authentic narratives about the ‘real’ music scenes of the USA. From the strip clubs of Atlanta, GA to the shoegaze scene in Portland, OR and from the sensation of New Orleans, LA’s sissy bounce to underground alternative rap culture in New York City, each of the films will reveal cinematic portraits of distinct music sub cultures.

Don’t be scared to run this–run this–run this back. Hello World! I trust that all is well. Yes, I am doing well–I’ve been plotting and planning new summer business, alot of meetings no offers yet (a Jay-Z verse, it just sounded good to use). Please take a gander back to your calender of March; I made a Reprise to New York during my Spring Break. After seven days of working (oppose to laying by the sunset) I had massive amounts of photos that I wanted to post, but they didn’t make the cut. Unleash the unreleased–I heard from a bird that you sleep when you die, so I turned into a Dove–watch me Fly. My whole mental; ain’t shit to lose. LateBoots Nation; lite like some roman candles. Boy this blog is crazy! Coltrane Curtis on my right, Team Epiphany on my left; I’m safe. Now let’s get back to bizness.

So, you remember my trip to Philly last week yes? Good, because I was snatched. For the final stop on the 2012 Heineken Red Star Access (6-city) tour, Wale, Nas and Q-Tip joined forces in Philadelphia. Concertgoers lined up outside of the famed Electric Factory, hours in advance to catch the concert. Q-Tip entertained the crowd with a DJ set alongside comedian Affion Crockett. Fans were surprised when the rapper Wale invited Philly hip-hop artist Freeway on stage for a performance of his 2002 hit, “What We Do.” And because you and I are friends, here is the video of all the fun.
