Dice Magazine Issue 30

January 25, 2010 | Filed Under Hot Rods, Just Cool

Just got the notice that the new issue of DICE MAGAZINE has been released. I am sure there was some kick ass chopper drinking release party over the weekend, but I am live across the country from all that so I just get the email announcement. If you have not checked out Dice magazine and you are interested in motorcycles, skateboards, vans or other time machines to a classic time, then you must order your copy today.

I got a subscription for Christmas from my wife. So happy to not have to run to order the new copy every time. Hell it might even be at my house when I get home, wouldn’t that be nice. I like a lot of magazines, but Dice continues to wow and excite me every issue. I think it is because of the casual approach to some topics taken seriously by some people. It makes your interests more fun and not just some facts thrown on the page for nerds. The general approach reminds me of the early issues of Big Brother or music fan zines. Some random words set to the printed images adds so much to the story.

Conan!

I am sure this is the most blogged topic today but who cares. The show was killer. Just watched the show again, so many great bits. The loose style added a lot to the goodbye show. Conan looks so focused when is playing the guitar, like he knows how to play but hasn’t played much lately. Maybe we will see a Conan album! What about Beck on stage with that crew.

Neil Young had a knock out performance. It looked like he was in the green room relaxing and they surprised him when he had to go on. But in perfect form just knocks out a song in tribute to a comedy king.

Isaac Lin: A Place Near Here

January 22, 2010 | Filed Under Art, Just Cool

Last night I went to see my pal Isaac Lin’s latest collection of work at Fleisher Ollman Gallery right here in Philadelphia. The opening was packed with friends and fans, everyone enjoying the playful space and diving into the patterns Lin creates. The photo collaborations were over the top and Lin was able to add another story to each with his signature patterns and directions.

Make sure to check out the work when it goes online or if you are in Philadelphia go take a look in person
