Question And Answer

Laurent Fintoni, OriginalCultures

Laurent Fintoni, OriginalCultures

COB? What has been your latest travel location?
LAURENT Technically Berlin, though I’m about to go to Galway and Limerick tomorrow.

COB? For business or for holiday?

COB? Do you draw inspiration out of traveling?
LAURENT Yes very much so. London’s great but it grinds you down, getting out of it for any length is essential to staying sane and realising when you come back that it’s not such a bad place to live in.

COB? Chicken or beef, when the stewardess asks you?
LAURENT Beef all the way. Airline chicken always tastes of nothing.

COB? Five things you take with you on a solitary island?
LAURENT My laptop, a dongle for internet connecting, the latest book i’m reading, note pad and a pen.

COB? Who should be asked next these questions?
LAURENT Jim Coles aka Om Unit.

COB? Thanks a lot Laurent!

Just rediscovered the website by Canadian-born photographer and director Joey Lawrence. It’s not really hard to recognize that this guy is not only deep into traveling but also fantastic in seeing the world through the camera lense and orchestrating his impressions around the planet. Also have look at the camera equipment and lenses he uses.

Johnny Bastard is made of real flesh and blood! But he isn’t a member of the famous Wu Tang Clan. He even doesn’t have entered the first of 36 Chambers but he heard of this funny Wu Tang name generator via the pretty cool and relaunched Interview-Magazine and tried it out. This magazine was originally founded by Pop Artist Andy Warhol in 1969 and is art-directed by Mike Meiré in the german version. The current one features the King of (Art-)Pop Andy Warhol himself, Lana Del Rey and Chloë Sevigny. Very nice to read, but a bit too large in format for the backpack.
