Thug Kitchen launched in 2012 as a domain “to inspire the shit out of some motherfuckers to eat better and have a healthier lifestyle.” It’s as if Big Ghost took his humorous album review rants to the fridge offering cheap recipes with a heavy dose of in-your-face, hip-hop influenced lingo. In a recent how-to post for a smokey eggplant dip, the glorified hood chef referred to his main ingredient as a “Grimace-looking son of a bitch” and followed it with more f-bombs than a Dennis Leary standup. Thug Kitchen doesn’t just provide a refreshingly brash take on recipes however, it also pushes readers to live a healthier life; from demanding readers to “drink some goddamn water” to suggesting visitors feed their dogs frozen peas to make their coats “shiny as fuck.” Although the collective prefers to remain anonymous, their website as garnered some well deserved attention over the past year reaching over 384,000 Facebook likes and even being mentioned by Gwyneth Paltrow on The Rachael Ray Show. Check out the site here.
Heres a look at GivenchySpring 2014 Pre-Collection. Again keeping true to their exploration of street style in the recent years, we see a selection of stylish looks with camo and floral prints. The combination and collage of prints and patterns make up a nice selection of items from shirts, shorts as well as outerwear from the label. And of course its well tailored suits go very well with its “over” usage of prints. Check out more pictures of the Givenchy Collection after the jump. (more…)
Although there are countless artists who use stencils as their key medium, Logan Hicks is one of the few artists who have actually mastered the complex technique of very detailed, multi-layered stencil painting. The evolution of Hicks is a particularly fascinating one, where he started to explore the boundaries of realism through stencil painting, then mastering it, only to push the medium even further. Thin Veils and Heavy Anchors is the title of his most recent solo exhibition in Los Angeles, and this video documentary underneath sums up the concept behind the show.
Ed Davis is somewhat of an online enigma, operating behind the facade of a couple of projects you probably should have heard about by now. As the co-founder of The Heavy Mental – a site that provides an always-interesting original take on city life and art – Ed’s got his fingers in a number of proverbial pies, including the recent launch of What Are You Doing After This? in February/March – a group show held at London’s Ivory & Black gallery that featured a host of raw, uncensored artists and their work.
Most recently however, Ed is in the process of launching a new, publishing wing for The Heavy Mental – a collaboration with Melbourne-based Smalltime Books – appropriately named, HEAVYTIME. In the spirit of HM, HEAVYTIME will release zines, books and other assorted paperback goodness with a strong focus on art, culture and the unorthodox. With all this going on, we spent 5 Minutes with Ed to get his take on the situation.
SLAMXHYPE // Hey Ed, can you introduce yourself and talk about your creative background?
Ed Davis // Nah. That’s boring. You don’t want to know that stuff. The things I do with HM are not about me.
SXH // OK then, in your own words describe The Heavy Mental.
ED // HM is a website that Todd Jordan and I have. Its main purpose is to shed a little light on people that we feel are doing interesting things. The website is just another platform though and we are not restricted by it. We are also beginning to organise exhibitions, product collaborations and are about to launch our publishing company HEAVY TIME.
SXH // There’s a definite element of a tight-knit – almost local – collective mindset on the site. Contributors offering inside knowledge through original content, be it stories/shoots/reviews etc… can you expand on that?
ED // It is very tight knit and it all happens super organically. If it feels right then it it probably is. If it’s not, fuck it. We don’t feel the pressure to have new content on the site everyday.
SXH // Can you talk about your involvement with What Are You Doing After This? The show has now hit the road, right?
ED //What Are You Doing After This? is an exhibition that we put together with HM friend Jeff Potocar in London. It started as a conversation between me and Jeff and turned into an epic show. Everyone in the show are friends and that was the whole idea. We had 10 artists from the show over in London for the opening and it was incredible. It’s just finished in London and we plan to take it to a bunch of places. We haven’t locked in the next location yet though.
SXH // So you were telling me about HEAVYTIME – what’s that about?
ED // HEAVYTIME is the publishing side of HM. It’s a partnership between HM and Smalltime Books. It’s going to be sick.
SXH // How did the Smalltime connection come about?
ED // I meet Rob from Smalltime and we became mates right away, everything else just fell into place.
SXH // So although there is an official launch around the corner, there have already been a couple of HEAVYTIME releases…
ED // The first two titles NECKFACE/FUCK THIS LIFE Trust Us You’re Dead and Jeff Potocar’s How to Make a Jailhouse Tattoo Machine are out and about in limited numbers. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. So many good things in the pipeline.
SXH // Was it a fairly logical move for you to expand into print publishing?
ED // It’s just another way for HM to show some of the amazing things people we know are doing. Like everything we do it has to feel right and working with Rob at Smalltime is awesome. A great dude with an open mind and a similar way of looking at things.
SXH // Is there a specific vision and/or agenda behind HEAVYTIME? How would you like to see it evolve past its early stages?
ED // Our agenda is to do great things with great people. It’s that simple. Hopefully it will grow to allow more freedom and allow us to do bigger and more ambitious projects.
SXH // How will HEAVYTIME’s publications be distributed?
ED // The distro will be limited and only with like minded crew and family.
Bike couriers may soon start cutting into their car counterpart’s market, thanks to a new bicycle prototype invented by British industrial designer Ben Wilson. The ‘Donky’ bike is the latest effort from the man who has made a name for himself in the art world attempting to reinvent the (bike) wheel, but the Donky is his first bicycle project with mass production in its sights. The Donky bike’s design has a hefty cargo carrying capacity, with two detachable steel holders that rest the weight of luggage on the frame instead of the bike handle. Cargo can be held in place with bungee chords. The Donky suits couriers with more than a parcel to deliver; picnic goers who want to put on an elaborate spread; and even those who think their pets should discover the joys of a leisurely bike ride. The Donky bike is available now in green or black.
Japan’s BEAMS previews their Fall/Winter 2012 Men’s collection with a new video titled, “Clean Heavy Duty.” While the three characters in the video seem just as lost and confused as you’ll feel after watching it, at least you’ll get to see glimpses of what the line has in store. Perhaps they spent all their creative capital on designing new sweaters, pants, outerwear, and other accessories for the upcoming colder temps, because the video itself is hard to assign meaning to. Then again, maybe that’s their point. Either way, click after the jump to see what these guys are wearing from BEAMS. Read the rest of: BEAMS – Fall/Winter 2012 “Clean Heavy Duty” | Video
Marking the release of its Fall/Winter 2012 collection, BEAMS has dropped this new video entitled “Clean Heavy Duty.” Depicting the likes of a badminton player, a mustachioed bicyclist and a lost tourist, the short piece sees each of the aimless characters in the latest sweaters, trousers, outerwear and accessories from the Tokyo-based label. The entirety of BEAMS’ Fall/Winter 2012 collection is now available online and in its storefronts across Asia.
