If you’re attending these festivals and looking for something to wear, Kate Beaton has a vintage photograph of a man dressed like “a side of bacon.” He was a hipster before he knew it.
Also hipster, but in the most wonderful way possible, is ~Flow, “electro-acoustic musical machinery powered by the River Tyne.” Very impressive, and beautiful as well.
I found ~Flow via BLDGBLOG, which also has a fantastic entry on New York City’s quarries of yesteryear.
In related rock-smashing news, the Daily Mash has reassured us that the dramatic increase in potential fracking activity will cause only a 30% chance of awakening Cthulhu. Don’t you feel better? Er...hello?
