NOW with MORE combat dogs with augmented reality goggles!

Welcome to nonostantement: a weekly newsletter with well behavedperfidious and off-centre stuff found all over the Internet.

Good morning, my name is Joele Lucherini and I spend my days designing and managing branding and advertising strategies, mostly online. Being on the Internet all the time I collect a lot of interesting and weird links. This email offers you a selection of the links from last week.

Do you need a soundtrack? Here we go: Matthew Halsall - The Sun In September (I know, I missed the opportunity to post this a couple of weeks ago, in September).

Don’t forget that if you like this newsletter you can now offer me a virtual coffee to show your support :)

Training Horses - Félix Thiollier c. 1899


I love this frame I randomly found on the internet - do you happen to know where it comes from? Please reply to this same email and tell me, if you do!

  • “Whilst the zero fucks given fun aspect of subverting a popular logo is hugely rewarding, twisting the multinationals branding to raise awareness of not only their wrong-doings […] utilizing an omnipresent visual to connect to an idea or movement that actively tries to either help or offer an alternative to a consumption-based existence is the great motivator here.” - Cease & Desists, Brandalism & Black Lodges. “Brandalism” in streetwear, that's a term I haven't heard in a long time…

  • The US Army has shown off augmented reality goggles for combat dogs, designed to let them receive orders at a distance. “Inside the goggles, the dogs can see a visual indicator that they can be trained to follow, directing them to a specific spot. The handler, meanwhile, can see what the dog sees through a remote video feed.”

  • As AI-generated deepfake technology is evolving fast and could become soon a problem for politics and a threat to our social fabric – this interesting article tries to give some potential solutions that can be implemented to keep it under control and guarantee a certain level of reliability of reality in the future.

That's it for now.
