Pete Doherty Auctions Off A Painting Featuring Amy Winehouse’s Blood

Musician Pete Doherty is one of my favorite misunderstood anti-heroes, a true artist and transcendent thinker whose messages are often sadly sacrificed to his drug-addled lifestyle.

The First High Fashion, Internet-Inspired Instagram Photoshoot, Brought To You By Nick Knight

Instagram is the latest billion-dollar craze, but you probably won’t see me hopping on the bandwagon. I am biologically averse to anything that leads millions of middle schoolers with iPhones to believe that they are, in fact, skilled photographers.
