True Christmas Stories
Like the JFK assassination or Kurt Cobain’s suicide, you never forget where you were the moment Santa Claus becomes not real. I’ll always remember where I was when the jolly fat man went up in a puff of smoke, and after reading this you wont be able to forget either. My father is one of those…
SMOKE: Epokhe Klara & Ostra
Did you ever cook French Toast when you were a kid? White bread, dipped in egg then thrown in the frypan. It was kind of crisp, but also soggy as all fuck. How good was it? That good. Lather it in butter and honey then devour each slice quicker than the time it takes to say “Good…
SMOKE: SDS MARINE PARADE
Summer is upon on us and you know what that means? Bikinis. Lots and lots of bikinis. Everybody loves bikinis. I love bikinis, my dog loves bikinis, the Nun at my Sunday School loves bikinis.

The Print Aint Dead Zine Review: A Place In The Sun
Print is alive and kicking, and anyone who disagrees should have seen the turn out at The Printed Matter Art Book Fair held at PS1 on the weekend. The attendance numbers were in the high millions, and they all came to checkout the 300,000 metric tons of artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, zines, and antiquarian publications–not…

LENS: DAVID HAUSERMAN
Baywatch taught us many things. Running in slow motion is the fastest way to get from A to B. At most beaches, you’re more likely to encounter eco-terrorists, yacht pirates, arms dealers, and/or diamond smugglers than you are to drown. A real lifeguard can handle sharks, salt-water crocodiles, giant octopi. And women have breasts. Large,…

The Muses, who were also known as the Water Nymphs, inspired the line between art and science. During the day they would go to the sacred springs of…
