Now with LESS links!

Welcome to nonostantement:
a weekly newsletter with intoxicating, dubious and strange stuff found all over the Internet.

Hi, Joele here! I worked a lot during the last few days so this issue will be a short one, sorry about that.
Last week we published two websites, launched a couple of advertising campaigns on social media, started prepping a big online event for the end of this month - all while watching people gathering on Barcelona’s waterfront from this amazing webcam.


#ART
  • [In Italian] - Contro Banksy, il pubblicitario scambiato per artista
    ”Perfetto per un pubblico in cerca di ammaestramenti morali ma con un costante deficit di attenzione, non stupisce che la parabola dello street artist senza volto sia approdata da tempo a una retorica indistinguibile dal populismo più becero”

  • [Video] - The Rise of Graffiti Writing - From New York To Europe
    ”The story of Graffiti from its beginnings in 1970s New York to its arrival in Europe in the 1980s. Developing in the creative cauldron of the Bronx before crossing the Atlantic, the street style spread like a virus in Amsterdam, Paris, London and Copenhagen before taking over the entire continent”

#PEOPLE
  • A NEW YORK CITY WEED GUY ON DEALING DRUGS IN THE AGE OF CORONAVIRUS
    ”How does it feel to be a non-essential, but illegally essential worker right now? We chatted with our weed delivery guy about his thoughts on drugs in the time of corona and what it’s like to be keeping New York City stoned today.”

  • [Video] - DINE O MITE
    ”Skateboarding, surfing, and dirt biking in Santa Monica, CA, captured by a pre-teen David Markey on 8mm film in 1976/ '77”

  • 15 Old Computer Sounds That Will Take You Back to the '90s
    ”In the '90s, there were distinct sounds associated with computers that we don't think about today, but they're lodged deep in our memories. Let's go back to some computer sounds you probably haven't heard in decades.”
