xo.jpgI love reading i-D. I learn something new every time. My favorite thing to do is lounge on my couch with a big cold lemon-lime seltzer and the new i-D and read that thing cover to cover. Their enthusiasm is contagious. I'm in school right now and have just come from taking a test so my mind is totally in note-taking mode. Here is a list of things I have learned from the World Wide Web issue of i-D: John Waters describes his style as "disaster at the dry cleaners," Designer Siv Støldal's raincoats can be turned into tents—the more coats you have, the bigger your tent, Naomi Campbell is... whoa, Sonia Rykel is rad, the 60th anniversary of Dior at Versailles looks like it was insane in its fabulosity, I could go on... Also in there is Pharrell Williams, new fashion from Antwerp, London, and the ITS competition in Trieste, shoots inspired by www stuff like facebook, google, modems, computers crashing, downloads, etc.

On a more sober note, I also just bought the new Adbusters. It begins with an excerpt about our disturbing fascination with the cult of celebrity from Al Gore's book The Assault on Reason. There are a couple articles about America's financial disasters: one on the national debt and the other on the cultural and environmental costs of constantly living and shopping above our means. More on rethinking our alliance with Israel, marketing guru Bob Garfield, and thoughts on Maxim's Sexy Israeli Soldiers story.

Doingbird issue #12 is finally out. Yay! Model Natasha Poly is on the cover, shot by Alasdair McLellan. Inside are contributions from some PF favorites: Ann Demeulemeester, Collier Schorr, Helmut Lang, Kim Jones, Taryn Simon, and Vashti Bunyan. Find this beautiful Australian magazine online here or at your cooler newsstands.
