With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.
Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.
Honestly, this is even better than you think it will be.
Holy living fuck, you guys.
Space Oddity. From actual space.
Just watched this with my boys.
The boys got new superhero shirts — Batman and Iron Man.
When I was in college, me and a buddy of mine had the idea to make a short film about Batman and the Joker as college roommates. We thought it was brilliant. Seeing this picture sparked a similar idea: Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark as young kids. It’d be like Richie Rich, but with violent crime-fighting.
Boone’s drawing of Batman, Robin and the Joker.
He traced a roll of duct tape to make Batman’s head, but the rest he drew freehand. And for the record, I didn’t help him with this other than to tell him how to draw the Batman’s cowl.
What an unforgettable shot!
From Feature Shoot:
Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys. Galimberti explores the universality of being a kid amidst the diversity of the countless corners of the world; saying, “at their age, they are pretty all much the same; they just want to play.”
Less than a century ago, women in the United States were not guaranteed the right to vote. Many courageous groups worked hard at state and local levels throughout the end of the 19th century, making some small gains toward women’s suffrage. In 1913, the first major national efforts were undertaken, beginning with a massive parade in Washington, D.C., on March 3 — one day before the inauguration of President Woodrow Wilson. Organized by Alice Paul for the National American Woman Suffrage Association, the parade, calling for a constitutional amendment, featured 8,000 marchers, including nine bands, four mounted brigades, 20 floats, and an allegorical performance near the Treasury Building. Though the parade began late, it appeared to be off to a good start until the route along Pennsylvania Avenue became choked with tens of thousands of spectators — mostly men in town for the inauguration. Marchers were jostled and ridiculed by many in the crowd. Some were tripped, others assaulted. Policemen appeared to be either indifferent to the struggling paraders, or sympathetic to the mob. Before the day was out, one hundred marchers had been hospitalized. The mistreatment of the marchers amplified the event — and the cause — into a major news story and led to congressional hearings, where the D.C. superintendent of police lost his job. What began in 1913 took another seven years to make it through Congress. In 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment secured the vote for women.

All of my cousins are having kids—all boys. And my uncle’s side of the family are almost all ranchers or horse trainers. Our boys are the oldest and the rest kind-of cover the spread from toddler all the way to baby.
Anyway, we showed up for Xmas dinner with the family and discovered that my cousin’s husband made this saloon for all the kids.
Not only that, but it was modular. So at the end of the night, they simply took it apart and loaded the parts into the back of his truck.
Jesus Christ, I feel pride when I hang a damn picture straight.
