I have a new-ish blog going on Tumblr. It's an image based blog of vintage furniture, girls, ads and other things that I wouldn't normally post here. There's definitely a little bit of a crossover except for all of the photos of 50s gals.
Thanks for following!

Here are some stills from Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation from 1974. I've been trying to watch more movies lately and have been specifically drawn to movies from the 70s for one reason or another. I came across this one and immediately loved how amazing the shots are and how awesome the audio is as well. (There's a lot of tape splicing sounds, rewinding, street noises, etc. Stuff that I've often tried to incorporate into my music.) While watching it I said to myself several times that I should be taking screen shots of some of these, but today I took the easy way out as Filmgrab has done all of the dirty work on this one. I plan on taking more film stills to post, but figured this would be a good starting point. Thanks Filmgrab!
The Conversation stars Gene Hackman and is available on Netflix instant. I highly recommend it. There's also a lot of cool analog tape equipment in here if you're a gear nerd.

I've never been a huge fan of remixes of songs, but this one is pretty great. Million Young came through with a great one and I've been playing it almost every time when I DJ. Both are beautiful in their own right.
Today's post on ISO50 brought my attention to these Black Swan posters from a few months ago and figured it was worth a re-post. Why aren't all movie posters treated like this? It seems like it's a lost art as it's very rare to see clever or well designed movie posters these days. Lately the winning formula for movie posters seems to be an actors face, type that's racing off a page, and an explosion or car in the background or something.

Been on a bit of a Milton Glaser kick lately. I recently came across this lecture from Creative Mornings and this blog post from Container List that I love. There's some other really awesome stuff on that site so browse around it.
