Miranda July is at it again. The director, artist, writer, and overall creative powerhouse just launched a new messaging service in collaboration with Miu Miu, and it's awesome—though anything involving both Miranda and Miuccia Prada is enough to turn my eyes into giant cartoon hearts. The app, titled Somebody, was created to explore the chaotic opposite of the efficient and concise communication we enjoy today. As July told AnOther, Somebody is the ... Read More
  In the past year, Buzzfeed, that pinnacle of workplace distractions, has become something of a crystal ball for those searching for a deeper understanding of his or her inner psyche. I swear sometimes it's like a tiny internet paw is reaching through my computer screen and telling me, "It's okay if your sense of direction is akin to a drunken toddler.

Upon purchasing these artifacts--such as Japanese dolls, oil paints, an old paper cutter, and deer hooves--July interviewed the sellers.  These items are being ... Read More
N.Y.C.-based editor/designer Hamish Robertson is a busy man. You would think that being the online design editor of Vanity Fair would be time-consuming enough, right? Yet somehow Robertson finds time to create websites for well-known businesses (like vegan treatery, Babycakes), publish zines and prints as Brown Griffin (from his Brooklyn apartment), and curate Afterzine, a beautifully compiled arts and culture publication.  Featuring a collection of ...
