_"Re-bel was being distributed outside in the courtyard of Somerset House. It’s an impressive feat, a manifesto that rebuts the bloggy brevity their peers opt for. In fact, Re-bel looks so substantial that it made the clothes feel like an afterthought. But, from Karl Marx to Malcolm Maclaren, London has always been the city that is kindest to manifestos."

_Old Interview magazines. I've collected them for about 7 years now, but in the last few months I've met a dealer who always comes to me first with his new stock - This is both a blessing and a curse - since December I have spent over £XXX pounds on limited issues.

_A few friends of mine produced this throughout the second year of there graphics degree at CSM - its really great, and I loved collecting all the differing coloured screen print issues through the year.
"Functioning in conjunction with, and acting as an additional alternative space to our second year show, this publication was produced with the intention to give light to previously unseen, unfinished and unrealised ideas. This was a monthly publication displaying work by second year BA Graphic Design students at Central Saint Martins."

_And if so where?!
The Buyer at DSM told me on Friday that they weren't getting any of the stud print or tartan from SS10 - WTF?! - With no Givenchy store in LDN, and the only other place that stocks it being Harrods (and lets be honest, are they gonna stock me a full stud print look?!)
Please, someone, inform me where I can find this?!

_How we in the UK are a month behind on Interview magazines - in the modern day world this is totally ridiculous. Just a the JayZ cover drops here, the Lara cover releases in the US - Bullshit, I want this issue NOW - it looks total genius.
Get it sorted Fabien.

_The all black customizable PVD Rolex Daytona Chronograph by Bamford and Sons. Only £8500 - I want this more than anything in the world right now, and I have been told that nothing holds its value more, than Diamonds, and Rolex's - Does this justify buying this watch?!

SPRÜTH MAGERS LONDON
FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 27 2010
Sprüth Magers London is delighted to present an exhibition of work by the legendary filmmaker and artist Kenneth Anger, in his first solo show in London for five years. Making films continuously since the late 1940s and considered a countercultural icon, Kenneth Anger is widely acclaimed as a pioneering and influential force in avant-garde cinema. His groundbreaking body of work has inspired cineastes, filmmakers and artists alike. Many channels of contemporary visual culture, from queer iconography to MTV, similarly owe a debt to his art.
The exhibition will feature his seminal 1969 film Invocation of My Demon Brother. This work, a hypnotic montage of jarringly edited images, shifting intense colours and symbols with a repetitive synthesised soundtrack by Mick Jagger, is typical of Anger’s sinister and subversive aesthetic.
The Perfect place to hide away on a rainy afternoon (exactly what I did on Friday, while the rain poured outside)
