The Rolling Stone Interview: Stanley Kubrick in 1987

My first introduction to Kubrick was through A Clockwork Orange sometime in the early 90’s via a very degenerated, over-saturated VHS copy, that bizarrely my mother had somehow got hold of.

Newly discovered star clusters that up until were obscured by galactic dust. Beautiful.

Matthew Dear – Slowdance (Video)

Taken from the beautiful (and now year old believe it or not) Matthew Dear album Black City. Love the use of oil projectors in this.
