Unsurprisingly, Outerbridge worked in commercial photography shooting for the likes of Vanity Fair, French Vogue, and Harper's Bazaar magazines up until the '40s. Most of his outside work was too hot for public viewing and has only been revealed in galleries and such over the last 20 years. He died in 1958 on the sunny shores of the OC.

Anyway, this set took on a life of its own as I was making it and morphed into a '50s nostalgic ode to an array of late '70s punk, mixed with some '60s garage/psych/pop and a little indie rock thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!

Frequent Arthur magazine contributor and scholar/filmmaker Daniel Rushkoff has a titillating new book out about the unending tale of corporations taking over our lives, sliver by sliver. This may or may not be old news to some.
In a way more articulate and intelligent manner, Rushkoff's rants remind me of the suburban "punk kids" I hung out with in high school -- those fired-up-on-Minor Threat mini-anarchists who taught me that "corporate" was the dirtiest of all dirty words and whose parents were working for aerospace companies like Raytheon and TRW. Anyway, if you learn that expletive early, then I think you're in pretty good shape but you should read this book anyway.
