Tweed will be everywhere this season.
Sebastian Horsley was a freak of nature. And a damn good one. He was a known dandy (although too excessive to really fit the category), the first westerner to be crucified in the Philippines and a confessed class A drugs and prostitution addict.
He died from a drug overdose, at the age of 47, in June 2010 but left us with is “unauthorized autobiography”, “Dandy in the Underworld”. A must read.
Enjoy the Interview. A sneak peak of Sebastian’s wit.
Personal favourite bit:
“I: You said you spent 90% of your money on prostitutes and 10% on class A drugs?
I: It was the other way around?
I: So, what’s the equation?
S: I didn’t spend it. I invested it!”
“Powers of Ten” is a 1968 American documentary short film written and directed by Ray Eames and her husband, Charles Eames, rereleased in 1977.
The film depicts the relative scale of the Universe in factors of ten and is an adaptation of the 1957 book Cosmic View by Kees Boeke.
And the music was composed by Elmer Bernstein.
How insignificant are we?
