The best part of blogging
is getting the chance to
celebrate a talent

A Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan
Proves why Rem Koolhaas is a genius
and why architects should dress-up
as their buidlings.
El Morocco's Family Album
The 1937 blue cloth edition.
I got a rare glimpse of this once,
and I can't stop thinking about it.
El Morocco was the place to be.
Truman Capote, Bogart, Ingrid Bergman,
and Marilyn Monroe were known regulars at
John Perona's east-side speakeasy.
No Captions Necessary.
J.Zerbe's photo album...for MEMBERS ONLY
captured the feverish energy, insanity, and fantastic
debauchery of El Morocco nights. Think Misshapes.
And the iconic blue & white zebra-striped banquettes

that it was taken in El Morocco. brilliant.
[In 1950, Bogart was banned for life for
bringing in a giant stuffed panda bear]

I think I was drawn to Moby's
daily reflections on mundane
things, like, the weather.
It was comforting to
read about snow falling
on his feet, just as it
fell on mine.
...his travels from
one place to
rock star_super_ status,
his posts + photos are truly
honest & expressive in thought.
everything is so approachable,
laid back and revealing.
...as if you, the world,
are a dear old
ps: he cares about things.
Julian Schanbel's latest

How to describe 'Chupi'...
1. pink, sandstone, "Pompeii red" layer cake.
2. neo-Moorish, arched-window monument to ego.
3. "Baby-Boomer Bohemian Bourgeois"_living
4. ...a monster?
It's so bizarre that I like it.
