Proof that 1967 was their best year

in 1967 the beatles became FREE.

Free from their iconic and teen image they gave themselves for the screaming fans and magazines. They were not 4 cute lads anymore. They literally could do what they wanted with their image, body, clothes, and life. Also, they grew up, they became independent. Each one of them got a new house, an independent life. They stopped touring. They could handle their public and private life as they wanted. That’s why I love how it’s even more blatant that John and Paul spent countless time together, in London, full of fans who turned out to be their paparazzi, taking candids and following them everywhere.

First proof, look at this:

This is my favourite photo of them of all time. It was late night, they were going to abbey road recording sgt pepper, coming from Paul’s house. They look like a married couple to me. They spent more time together than with their supposed girlfriends and wives. 

v This was taken by a fan. John in front of Paul’s house v

Alwayss together. Always.

This looks like a peaceful sunday afternoon to me.

In his interview, Paul likes to tell how many times they wrote songs in the evening, and spent the night in the studio, recording.

John going to Paul’s house, writing songs with him, have dinner together, having fun with Martha. Domestic bliss.

^ ^ ^ Another favourite of mine. ^ ^ ^

This was taken by a fan who saw them getting out Paul’s house together to bring Martha at the park. They look like today rockstars in LA. Look at Paul, he looks like he was born in 1992. Sneakers, tight jeans, a shirt and a stylish jacket. And John? He’s wearing Paul’s poncho. Or John’s. I still haven’t understood, since they both shared their clothes. And in 1967 we’ve got many proofs.

1967 is also the best year for their look. 

Paul has always been beautiful, but in my opinion nothing will ever beat 1967.

And John?

Wasn’t he damn beautiful? Finally expressing his true self and look. The iconic glasses, the hair. And that smile.

Tell me there’s something better than this, I won’t believe you. It doesn’t exist.

Here you are. The greatest music partnership of all time. My secret desire is to see a David Bailey photoshoot remade in 1967. How beautiful it would be.

1967 was their first and last year of free marital bliss. Before India arrived, before Yoko arrived, before the end.

Thomas Jefferson’s Birthday

Joyeux anniversaire to a dear friend of Lafayette’s and a true American Francophile. Thomas and Gilbert kept in touch for years after the War for American Independence and during Lafayette’s tour of the new United States in 1824-1825, the two were reunited at Monticello where they embraced one another, wept, and then proceeded to drink nearly all of Jefferson’s wine cellar dry.

No kinda party like an old people party cuz an old people party got booze. And, you know. Probably mac and cheese. ;)

Être indépendant est l'affaire d'un très petit nombre ; c'est le privilège des forts. Et, qui en prend le risque, fût-ce avec les meilleures raisons, mais sans y être contraint, prouve sans doute qu'il n'est pas seulement fort mais téméraire jusqu'à l'extravagance.

“Rhythm Of Love”


I don’t think the 5sos fam can take this anymore. On top of all the new songs and announcements we’ve been bombarded with the past two days, we now have a closest-to-a-nude-as-you-can-get picture of Luke Hemmings…

Help us…


Nukeme, Fashion Designer

Latest episode from toco toco web documentry series on Japanese creatives looks at artist who explores glitches in fashion making, as well as a little tour of independent fashion spaces:

Nukeme is a fashion designer based in Tokyo. He works on various creative projects, that recently include a collaboration with Urusei Yatsura license and other projects leveraging new technologies. His latest creations feature glitch art, that he creates by hacking into embroidery software, which generates a random aspect to his works.

First we will follow Nukeme to Hayatochiri, a select shop located in the Koenji area, whose owner, Goto is also a creator himself. The store features unique creations made by young local designers, and it was the first to feature Nukeme’s work eight years ago. The store’s walls are fully decorated with manga pages, so the store’s visitors can also enjoy some reading while browsing through its wares.

Our second stop will be at House@Mikiri Hasshn, a store and gallery space located in Omotesando area. The store combines original fashion creations from Japanese creators, vintage clothes and a gallery space located in the basement. We will have a peek into the current exhibition, Korisho, featuring items that combine traditional Japanese craftsmanship with new technology, such as laser cutting. Its peculiar interior combined with its concept make the store one of Nukeme’s favorite spots in Tokyo.

Lastly, we will head to Nukeme’s atelier, where he will tell us about his work inspiration and creations, some of which involve a unique use of 3D printing…
