Memories of Sex

MEMORIES OF SEX FROM FORUM MAGAZINE: One of the most prescient pieces published about 430 King’s Road in its incarnation as SEX appeared, appropriately enough, in sex magazine Forum in the mid-70s. Continued here.

Steve Jones, Unknown, Alan Jones, Chrissie Hynde, Jordan, Vivienne Westwood. By David Dagley, circa 1975.
On a related note, I've been meaning to mention that, after literally a couple of years of waiting, probably the best website dedicated specifically to the Malcolm McLaren/Vivienne Westwood-era of 430 King's Road has finally relaunched! Visit Only Anarchists Are Pretty now!

Now On eBay, Home Movie of Don Kirshner's Son's Bar Mitzvah

Here's an interesting item currently available on eBay - a home movie of Don Kirshner's son's bar mitzvah in 1973 at the Waldorf Astoria here in New York. As the description says: "Silent 16mm home movie of Don Kirshner's son Ricky's Bar Mitzvah in 1973 at the Waldorf. Approx 1200 feet that runs on silent speed. Don Kirshner is notable for many things including Don Kirshner's Dance Party and The Monkees. No vinegar,very slight warping,nice picture and color. Got this a few years ago in a lot with some other films,not knowing what was on it till i got it home. I had someone check with the family and no interest was expressed so here it is now for auction. Tony Orlando and Dawn was one of the entertainment acts as seen and other people look familiar but i am unable to identify anyone ,being born in 1970 i'm just a generation too young. any questions feel free to ask,thanx for looking! Sorry for the poor screen caps but its the best i could do, film looks great!"

New doc alert - The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975

The title of a new documentary recently shown at Sundance caught my eye this morning in one of my RSS feeds. The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975 is a new documentary by Swedish director Goran Olson that covers the movement from its beginnings to its seeming demise in the grasp of the drug plague that followed in the 70's. Due to a surprisingly deep stash of vintage, previously unseen, footage found in Sweden (see the trailers below), it looks like this will be something worth seeing despite some lukewarm reviews.

Includes appearances by Stokely Carmichael, Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis, Huey P. Newton, Louis Farrakhan, Erykah Badu, John Forte, Davis, Abiodun Oyewole, Seale, Melvin Van Peebles, Kathleen Cleaver, Harry Belafonte, Talib Kweli, Robin Kelley.

Turbospoke: The Bicycle Exhaust System

Posted: 18 Mar 2011 10:00 PM PDT

What's up people? Remember when you were a kid and put a baseball card near the spokes of your bicycle, so it made that horrible clicking sound as you pedaled? Well, imagine if you had access to the following invention. Check it out.

I guess the good thing is that it'll warn people that kids are approaching (or idiot city bicyclists). But seriously, wouldn't a baseball card be cheaper?

Hip priest - the photography of Paul McDonough

A bunch of amazing Paul McDonough NYC photographs popped up online recently and reminded me of how great his work is - see them here. I first discovered his work a couple of years ago upon the event of some show or another of his. Click away on the links and appreciate these fantastic shots taken between 1968-1972.

A book of his work, Paul McDonough: New York Photographs 1968-1978, is available from the Umbrage Gallery.

Hip Priest by the Fall

As a somewhat recent story in the NY Times said, "They are ... timeless narratives, perfectly current in their story line. They’re suffused with detail and a lot of wit. And they repay close examination." Continued here.

Magnus Racing Finishes Seventh in Sebring

Posted: 20 Mar 2011 11:13 AM PDT

Magnus Racing #077 © 2011 DPerceptions.com, 12 Hours of Sebring

Photos: © 2010 Darren Pierson | Gallery after the jump!

Magnus Racing's start to the 12 Hours couldn't have been any better. Good friend, Craig Stanton put the Flex-Box Porsche 911 GT3 Cup into second during qualifying. From the drop of the green, Craig John and Matthew would motor on, swapping drivers and positions. Leading the class in the eighth hour, Potter was hit resulting in radiator, tire and body damage. The crew was able to get the Porsche back out, coming home in seventh.

Prior to the start of the 59th Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring, the wing endplates of the no.077 Magnus Racing / Flex-Box Porsche 911 GT3 Cup were decorated with decals that proudly stated 'Party Barge Sebring'. The decals were placed in honor of team fueler Bruce Sallet's yearly tradition as part of the 'Turn 10' crowd at the 12 Hours of Sebring – unable to take part this year due to his duties with Magnus Racing, the team's car would now be known as the 'Party Barge'.

Craig Stanton put Magnus Racing's Porsche second in the GT-C field during qualifying, in his return to the circuit for the first time since 2008. He was also tasked with starting the race and after a clean start, he spent the first several laps behind polesitter Leh Keen before moving the Party Barge into the lead for the first time. Magnus Racing team owner John Potter relieved Stanton after his first stint, and as differing pitstop strategies began to play out Potter spent the duration of his stint in third place but turned the car over to Hong Kong's Matthew Marsh in second.

Putting in quick times, Marsh also moved into the lead and maintained it throughout his time at the wheel. Another turn at the wheel for Stanton saw the no.077 machine move solidly into the lead as the race moved into its eighth hour.

Unfortunately, that's when the party would come to an end. After a restart, Potter was hit in turn eleven while being lapped by an LMP1 car, puncturing the radiator and front tire and causing significant front bodywork damage. Used to working miracles, the Magnus Racing crew took the car back to the hauler and repaired the damage, returning Potter to the race but suffering a loss of fifteen laps.

After that, it was smooth sailing home for the team but despite Marsh's and Stanton's best efforts, the best the car would do was seventh in the class that it had dominated throughout the day. The car did see the checkered flag, however, an accomplishment in its own right at the team's first attempt at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.

Magnus Racing will compete next at the Rolex Sports Car Series' Porsche 250 at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. They enter as the points leader in the GT class. The week after, however, they will return to ALMS GT-C competition at the Grand Prix of Long Beach in Long Beach, California.

John Potter – Owner, Magnus Racing

"It is really, really frustrating when one of these races gets away from you because a prototype doesn't give you enough room and can't wait a turn or two. The guys worked so hard all week and made the car so good. It's really hard to come away from this one feeling positive about something when we had the car to win – and were leading. However, this team will give us fast cars all year long and we'll have more chances to get more wins."

Craig Stanton – Driver, no.077 Magnus Racing / Flex-Box Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

"It's a really tough break, this was new territory for the team. John, Matthew, and the whole team just absolutely nailed it. It was easy to drive fast, a total joy, and we got taken out. However he fact that they did things so well this time means I am really confident that we will have the car to beat in GT-C again at Long Beach, and I'm really looking forward to that."

Matthew Marsh – Driver, no.077 Magnus Racing / Flex-Box Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

"This wasn't the result we wanted, especially after things were going so well in the early stages of the race. We had a competitive car and the team did a great job preparing it – this was definitely the most comfortable team experience I've had yet. It was great to take part in my first 12 Hours of Sebring with this organization and I'm looking forward to doing it again."

Race highlights will be shown Sunday, March 20, at 12:30-2:30 PM ET on ABC. The entire race will also be available on demand soon at AmericanLeMans.com.

Flying Lizards 8 Hour update from Sebring

Posted: 19 Mar 2011 03:40 PM PDT

With four hours left to go in the twelve-hour race, the No. 45 Flying Lizard Porsche is P8 and the No. 44 is P10. Patrick Long is currently in the No. 45 for his second stint, and Marco Holzer is in the No. 44. The season-opener of the ALMS has proved to be a tough one – teams have navigated a constant stream of cautions caused by on track incidents.

The No. 45′s string of bad luck started early in the race when an incident with the No. 45 and the No. 04 sent both cars back in the field and collected the No. 01 Extreme Ferrari, which was retired. By the 4-hour mark, the No. 45 had worked its way back up to P7. Bad luck struck again when Joerg Bergmeister took over from Marc Lieb for Joerg's second stint of the race. A scheduled change of the cool suit ice went awry, starting a cascade of events. On his outlap, under yellow, Joerg went off course, flat-spotting his right rear tire, an unusual event for Joerg. Several laps later, Joerg radioed in that the racecar had began to misfire. He was able to continue, but then had to pit early for new tires. In the pits, it took several tries to get the car to restart. While Joerg headed out to complete his stint, the engineers were working to diagnose the problem. As the misfires continued to build, Joerg was force to pit yet again. The engineers had determined that an electrical component had been damaged by water from the cool suit and were able to replace it on Joerg's last pit stop.

After a driver change, nearly 7 hours into the race, Patrick Long headed out for his second stint, now in P9 and two laps down on the GT leader. Meanwhile, the No. 44 held on to its position through the numerous yellows and cycling through Darren Law, Marco Holzer and Seth Neiman. By the 8-hour mark, Patrick had moved up to P8, and the No. 44 was P10.

As of 3:30, the No. 56 BMW is in the GT lead.

Craig Stanton wheels Magnus Racing Porsche to second on GT-C grid at Sebring

Posted: 18 Mar 2011 04:28 PM PDT

Driving at Sebring for the first time since 2008, Craig Stanton put his Magnus Racing / Flex-Box Porsche 911 GT3 Cup second on the GT-C grid for tomorrow's Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.

His lap narrowly missed the pole time set by Leh Keen by a scant 0.022 of a second. Keen, incidentally, raced for Magnus Racing in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series throughout 2010. After a long week of testing, the Magnus Racing team was thrilled with their driver and with their front row starting position – especially as this was the team's first trip to the notoriously difficult 3.7-mile Sebring road course.

Magnus Racing has one other start in the American Le Mans Series, at the 2010 Petit Le Mans, where Potter was joined by Andrew Davis and Ryan Eversley to finish third in GT-C.

John Potter, Magnus Racing Owner and Driver

"Qualifying only means so much in a twelve-hour race, but it is really great that Craig put in such a great lap and just missed the podium by a couple of tenths. And it also shows how good the car is. All three of us can run consistent laps and that is what is going to really matter tomorrow in the twelve hour."

Craig Stanton, Magnus Racing / Flex-Box Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

"It's great to give the guys a good qualifying position – but man I really wanted that pole! The whole team has worked really hard all week and it has been a long week, and everyone has been putting in a lot of work and very long hours to make the car so good. It's great to be back at Sebring with such a great team. Tomorrow will be a great race and I think this team has a great chance to finish on the podium."

Matthew Marsh, Magnus Racing / Flex-Box Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

"It was an extremely positive day for us to have the car qualify second for the 12 Hours of Sebring. I've been taking my time to adapt to the car and the circuit, since I haven't been here before, and it is getting better and better each time I get in it. That Craig was able to jump in and just miss pole position shows the car is quite good and we can be at the front. "

The 59th Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring will begin tomorrow at 10:30 AM ET and finish when the checkered flag falls at 10:30 PM ET. The race broadcast will begin at 9:45 AM ET on ESPN3.com, with a live audio broadcast available at www.radiolemans.com.
