Art For Obama book

Alison Zavos Contributor

By Alison Zavos in New Products on Tuesday 6 October 2009

Previous Guest Editor of Lost At E Minor, Shepard Fairey, and Jennifer Gross have a fantastic new book out through Abrams entitled, Art For Obama. Featuring artwork from more than a hundred International artists, including fellow Lost At E Minor Guest Editor Ron English [illustration above], Lukas Ketner, Kwaku Alston, Maya Hayuk, and Lisa Anne Auerbach, many of the works were created before the election to raise money for the Obama campaign. Pieces range from fashion to installation, and most refer back to Obama’s likeness. This will be a great book to look back on many years from now.

Pure Evil

Andy Howell Reader Find

By Andy Howell in New Art on Thursday 1 October 2009

In the midst of a neo-contemporary art movement muddled with carbon copy exhibitions and copycat galleries from all over the globe, artists and musicians assemble in a space in East London’s Hoxton district to showcase art, make music, and create whatever the hell they want. This is the essence of multi-faceted artist Pure Evil, descendant of Utopia scribe Sir Thomas More and mastermind behind the gallery, the music, the clothing lines, and the message.

The Polyphonic Spree

Ron English Reader Find

By Ron English in New Music on Tuesday 16 June 2009

A religious experience tailor made for the soul hardened agnostic hipster scene would be a good way to describe a Polyphonic Spree concert. Tim Delaughter’s unabashed joy is infectious enough to cultivate a Dead Head-esque cult of Jesus-robe-wearing followers, who have, throughout the band’s history, been allowed to join in on the on-stage festivities.

Now you can make the apple strudel from Inglorious Basterds and eat it too

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Food and Packaging on Friday 7 February 2014

So, about that strudel scene from Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. The hot apple strudel, topped with whipped cream and too much suspense for us to take, was simply cinematic food porn at its best. We love that The ShortList actually got the head chef at the Cotswold House Hotel to come up with this epic strudel recipe for Tarantino aficionados everywhere to make.

Take a whiff! Tins of French air selling for 5.50 euros

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Products on Thursday 12 December 2013

Student Antoine Deblay is behind this somewhat genius idea of selling air from his hometown, Montcuq. His idea garnered attention from the press, and not only because of the gimmicky idea, but because ‘the name Montcuq is frequently mispronounced as ‘mon cul,’ which translates to English as ‘my ass.’ So, ‘Air de Montcuq’ roughly translates as ‘the wind of my ass’.

Did they have a Corgi to inspire them, like, 200% of the time? Read on to find out. [Photo above: Stephen King working in his study]

Cormack O'Connor Contributor

By Cormack O'Connor in New Music on Saturday 4 May 2013

Well, well, well. What is there to say about Groovin’ The Moo? As you should know by now it’s Australia’s ONLY regional touring music festival, which means one thing: highly excitable punters.
