It has been quite a while since I’ve seen a musical performance in such a pure, authentic style.
From The Basement is a back to basics music TV show. It allows the artists to come into the studio and perform intimate live performances without the usual TV format getting in the way. That means no audience and no presenter. Just great music.
Artists featured include; Radiohead, The Raconteurs, Iggy & The Stooges, Beck, Gnarls Barkley, Jose Gonzalez, Fleet Foxes, Eels,The Kills, Sonic Youth, Queen Of The Stone Age, CSS and many more.

Kawakubo created another Parfum together with Monocle.
I found it last weekend at Frenchtrotters. Tyler Brulée wrote that the scent was “inspired by a trip to the Bekaa Valley, it’s a fresh clean scent that has warm laurel notes.” It was developed by Antoine Maisondieu, who also launched the Hinoki scent. Even though some of my friends think it fots more for guys I use it every day and I can't get enough of it. You can get it in the Monocle shop

Like these guys from Best Made Axes say :
Axes shouldn’t only be in the hands of lumberjacks: anyone who respects the merits of an axe should have one in their name. An axe is indispensable and sublime, the epitome of fortitude and strength, a perfect design object, a timeless instrument.Check out their axes here !

For over a thousand years, surfboards were carefully shaped solid pieces of wood, hand-hewn from logs. These boards were very heavy and the excess of weight limited their range of performance.
In 1929, Tom Blake created the first board built around an internal frame - this made boards a bit lighter. Within six years, half the boards on California’s beaches were of this “cigar-box” construction.
Grain’s boards are a natural blend of this traditional construction style with New England boat building craftsmanship.
The beauty of Grain Surfboards lies in the blend of local softwoods and the artful patterns naturally produced by the growth of the wood itself.
If you have the opportunity to travel to the coast of Maine, Grain Surfboards offers wooden surfboard building classes in York.
You’ll learn alongside the same builders that craft their custom wooden surfboards from locally grown, sustainable white cedar.
By the end of a Grain class, you will walk away with your own hand-built, wooden surfboard.
