Sometime last year, Brad Pitt began giving a lot of thought to unhappy marriages. The actor was in Los Angeles filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith , Doug Liman’s thriller about a glamorous husband and wife who are secretly hired to assassinate each other. While the movie uses domestic ennui as a backdrop for a series of high-style action sequences, Pitt wanted to tell a darker, truer tale, one that explored the “unidentifiable malaise” that so often haunts a seemingly happy couple. “You don't know what’s wrong,” he says, “because the marriage is everything you signed up for.” That was the inspiration for this photo shoot, which Pitt created with photographer Steven Klein.

I’ve also felt that I wanted this blog to be more, and do more, than a normal blog does. Finding the new, cool thing is fun and all, but my blog has grown so much since it started that I felt like I should try and do something more, something that would benefit you, the reader. First and foremost I decided that I wanted this new project to be free. Well, free doesn’t leave a whole lot of options that don’t include me going into debt, so I had to be creative.
Ten days ago, on Friday, June 13th, 2008, I had the extraordinary privilege of talking to George Carlin. As far as I know it was the last in-depth interview he gave before he passed away yesterday at age 71. Originally it was slated to run as a 350-word Q&A on the back page of Psychology Today.
A very simple guide to leaving here quickly so you can get back to making something awesome. Ask yourself… Why am I here right now instead of making something cool on my own? What’s the barrier to me starting that right now? This is not an insult or put-down.
Five hundred of Amy Arbus's impromptu, edgy, and adventurous portraits appeared in her Village Voice style feature, On the Street , between 1980 and 1990. These black-and-white images captured New York City's most fashion-forward residents. For the first time since that decade of self-exploration, these photographs are being revisited. On the Street is a collection of more than 70 of the most influential images, those that lend a voice to an era when individuality and self expression were fighting for breathing room in a culture that valued economics over creativity. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
