hedi slimane beck photos

Friday, April 27th, 2007

Hedi Slimane is a fashion designer and is friends with Beck. He was the Dior Homme designer that Beck did the absolutely amazing Dior Theme for. Slimane has a photo diary on his site and today’s entry has a number of photos of Beck. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing. (Make sure to check the second page, too.)

(Thanks Hambeck for posting the link)

UPDATE: I was way off on the date and with the link to the entry above. The photos are from the March 5 and March 8 entries.

tour/new album update from JMJ

Friday, April 27th, 2007

JMJ has posted a new blog on his MySpace and his web site. Of note for Beck fans:

Just back from Beck Japan/Australia run, probably the final leg of touring in support of “The Information”. It was pretty fantastic. Lots of rocking, good meals, riding bikes, seeing temples, shaking hands, taking photos, going to clubs, and long flights. Got some super cute and bizarre presents for my Zelly. Good to be home, but it’s always sad to me to put the final button on an album cycle. I always wish there was more….

Starting on new Beck album in fairly short order…in fact, I’d say we’ve actually already begun a while ago.

There’s more there, so go read the whole thing.

Bonus link: Brian Lebarton has been putting up a ton of awesome pics at his Flickr page.

Pictures In His Wallet: Photo Requests?

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

Hi, so I thought one fun thing to do for Paper Tiger would be to include photos of different places that might be related to Beck.  Since I live in Los Angeles, I could go take them on a spare day sometime.  I’m thinking of things like, the address listed on the “MTV Makes Me Want To Smoke Crack” single, or Al’s Bar, or Zankou Chicken.  Got any other ideas?  (Don’t say his house.) photo diary

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2007 has a new photo diary up, featuring nice, large photos Beck is taking while on tour. There are a lot of scenery/landscape shots, many of which are fairly abstract, and some band member shots. Beck is a good photographer, it turns out. Although the link will take you to the March 1 page, there actually photos for a couple days in February, too.

You folks may want to save these pictures, considering what’s happened to journals/photos in the past.
