Kinda ballsy for a brand to get as sweary as this. Using KP’s brand equity for their own? Criss cross. Criss cross.
Nicely cut together. And simple. And…

Cannot sugar coat this. It’s the rad-est thing I’ve seen all day.
Student project by Maximov. Pretty frickin’ nice.
Another story from America I’ve never heard of. Nice short.

This is just… ugh. Incredible to see the work that goes into something like this. So much heart for the craft and just the workmanship that’s in it.
People are so interesting. That sounds dumb, but bloody hell. Humans. The way we can be engaged on such a base level and open up in ways that both surprise and astound. These are just random people on the subway, answering questions honestly and off the cuff. Seriously, our ability to lower our shields in a flash to reveal our hearts to strangers and share loose-leaf thoughts – it’s one of the joys of existence. It blows to doors off my brain. Yay, humans. That’s all I have to say.
(And then there are the assholes. But shepherd them out the back door if you can.)
QUICK UPDATE: By the way, I don’t find the subway to be that depressing. There are times when I look around and think ‘what a cheerless bunch’, but others when you laugh with a stranger or talk about a book they’re reading etc. I’m more talking about the responses of those he spoke to. I wonder how intelligent my own responses would sound if put on the spot like that.
Via… somewhere. Ugh.
If you are not subscribed to Hennessy, I suggest you get on that (though be warned if you’re a little sensitive to bad language, you’re gonna blanch). Super watchable and kinda mind screwy, because although funny, they are some pretty sharp observations in there. How to make an art is another goodun. I don’t know why I love them. They just tickle some sad part of me.
Here’s an interview with him “Ali G With an MFA: Q+A With Hennessy Youngman” over at Art in America.
Prosthetic knowledge over on Tumblr got me hooked on him last week. And now, I pass the torch to you.
