b-sides and besides

darkryemag:

Phones are great, but phones aren’t cameras. They’re little point-and-shoots. Every now and then, take out the proper one, the camera with lineage. Bring it along and remember your friends and your neighbourhood exactly as it is, right now—in the way that only a proper camera can.

But for god’s sake, don’t dare expose your film properly. That way, it makes your picture look grainier and old-timey (this means cooler and closer to an Anthropology ad).

"Sometimes working with the camera, somebody does something that’s just beyond belief. Garry Winogrand takes pictures of things that in your wildest dreams you wouldn’t think could exist in the world. There’s a picture of a cow’s tongue in a cowboy’s hat that becomes a beautiful thing; it looks like a piece of architecture. In your wildest dreams you couldn’t come with that and that’s just because he was aware that it might be possible. He was there when it happened and his head worked that way.”

One of the best hip hop producers around, 9th Wonder. If you haven’t ever listened to Murs 3:16 or Murray’s Revenge, do it now. In my opinion, it’s two of the best underground hip hop collaborations in last 10 years.

9th Wonder spent the 2012-2013 academic year as a Harvard Fellow, teaching at the Hip Hop Research Institute. A new documentary captures this unlikely scenario
