"What’s it like to grow up working on the streets in a warzone, or to spend the first 15 years of your life pretending to be a boy? How does it feel to be one of the first skateboarders in a country, and at the same time a girl in a conservative Muslim society? In a nation divided along ethnic and gender lines, how do art, education and skateboarding create change?

This 320-page colour book features stunning, previously unpublished photographs accompanied by essays, interviews and personal stories from Skateistan’s founder Oliver Percovich and the young Afghans that have gone from being streetworking kids to teachers in the skatepark and classrooms. Full of hope, beauty, brutal honesty – and skateboards – this is a story about Afghanistan that you won’t find anywhere else.”

Su JunkiePop c’è una specie di mia recensione di Only Lovers Left Alive, il nuovo film di Jim Jarmusch con Tilda Swinton e Tom Hiddleston, All’incirca un film di vampiri col dito medio ben alzato nella direzione generale di Bella & Edward. Dai, leggi.

Anonymous said: Do you know where the Lubitsch sign that hung in Billy Wilder's office is today? Or who to ask? Thanks.


Hmm. Since the only photo I’ve seen of this sign (drawn by Saul Bass!) seems to be modern and museum-like, I want to say it’s hanging in the lobby of the Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum in Westwood Village in southern California. That’s my guess. I wouldn’t know who to ask except the executor of his estate or his relatives.

Any readers know the whereabouts of the Lubitsch sign?

If you are talking about the “how would Lubitsch do it?” sign, it’s in the Deutsche Kinematek Museum für Film und Fernsehen in Berlin > 

It’s my 2nd-favourite item in the permanent collection, number 1 being the vast array of Peter Lorre’s passports under different names/disguises from when he escaped Germany and subsequently moved to Hollywood. Also, Marlene Dietrich’s complete luggage set and the original backdrop art for Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari. A fabulous film museum.
