Milles David Lynch tegning er med i en ny bog, der hedder “Never Sleep With The Director - And 50 other Ridiculous Film Rules”. Kort beskrivelse af bogen:This book is meant for movie lovers, silver screen starlets and the people who get to yell ‘cut’ and ‘action’ on set. It contains 51 movie-related rules, their history and quotes by industry leaders, Hollywood big shots, indie directors and a whole list of actors and actresses.
I spent all my money on school books the other day. Look how lovely they all are!!
Paa en sømands grav - Vokser ingen roser
Back in the day Copenhagen was the tattoo capital of Scandinavia. In the wee-early 19th century newly-laid-drunk-out-of-their-minds sailors would let usually just as drunk Danish tattooists add an eagle or an anchor to whatever ink-entourage they had begun assembling through ports in New York, Hamburg, the far east, and so on.
Though Nyhavn 17, the world’s longest-running tattoo parlor, is still around, today the world of needled ink appears rather blah when put up against its former glory. Watching those terrible Ink shows it seems like 9 out of 10 customers come in asking for a fucking picture of their dead pet? Hail Mary, you miserable, boring doinks–no wonder your “almost human” canary punched its ticket. To sum it up, tattoos are just another item on the everything-list entitled “Stuff That Was Way Cooler in the Old Days.” Recently Jon Nordstrøm sent us his beautiful book, Danish Tattooing, which proves this sad truth. The book covers more than a century, but the ones we’re showing here are from the 60s– before silly bikers, former pet-owners, and advertising executives ballsed it all up. Enjoy.

I received this beautiful book in the mail yesterday. It’s a huge book about danish street art. This edition has a special cover made by the ever awesome Husk Mit Navn (click here if you want to see the entire cover). The original cover is made by Christian Elovara Dinesen and looks like this:
So far I’ve just looked through it very quickly, but it looks great. I think I’ll add it to my Summer Vacation Reading List so it wont get too depressing to spend the entire summer in Jutland…..
