Bon anniversaire, Monsieur Proust! The beloved French author would have been 143 today. We’d encourage a reading of Swann’s Way to celebrate, but if you’re a little pressed for time, why not check out his poetry instead? Here’s a sampling from our Collected Poems, edited by Harold Augenbraum:

Time erases all just as the waves

Efface the children’s castles on the beach

We’ll forget these words so precise, so vague

Still sensing the infinite behind each.

Time erases all it does not efface the eyes

Be they of star, clear water, or opal

As rich as in the skies or on the jeweler’s table

They flame for us, joyous or sadly wise

The joyous, flown from their living bevels,

Will pierce my heart with their gem-hard glints

As on the day they were set in their lids

Gleaming with a precious, deceptive sparkle.

INTERPOL’S NEW VIDEO FOR ALL THE RAGE BACK HOME IS HERE

And it’s very nice, indeed. A black and white affair, cutting between the band slick and well-dressed in a studio and a surfer riding big frothy waves. A bit like that Guinness advert with the horses. Kind of. Great song too. We can’t wait for forthcoming album El Pintor.

Happy birthday to David Hockney! He painted this work in 1963, the same year he first visited Los Angeles, a city which greatly influenced his later work.

New York City during the 1980s was an entirely different kind of city than it is today. Street photographer Richard Sandler spent much of the decade capturing the urban grit found along the busy sidewalks, bustling street corners, and crowded subway trains throughout the city.
