Preview mobile image of Supreme General from an upcoming releaseRequired Reading is a weekly listing of all the bits of visual inspiration, cool videos, news, hip links, and miscellaneous information that rattles my head during the week. The stuff that’s worth bookmarking and gets my brain-juices flowing.


• Real men swear is my recent guilty pleasure – and cutting the lawn certainly is a gentleman’s pursuit.

• The idea of a continuous feedback loop is a fascinating idea, especially for photographers whose impression is left as much left by the experience as it is by the product.

• Jamming 25 of Saul Bass’ amazing title sequences to ether into one retrospective video is almost too much cool film geekery to handle.

• ISO50’s list of the most refreshing albums of 2011.

• My old college buddy Douglas Sonders’ guide photography gadget gift guide for 2011. I definitely added few things to my wish list today – Especially that ONA waxed canvas camera bag.

• Jessica Hische on where inspiration turns into imitation – once again stressing the importance of editing.

• Glad to see more pros embracing the iPhone as a creative tool and not as the death knell of the photography industry as so many others have.

• The PlugBug seems to me like it may be the most amazing invention of this century – I need to get one of these for when I travel. Too many gadgets and not enough plugs.

• A bit melancholy for how happy they normally make me, but I love these images of Muppets confronting their origins.

 Sugru has proven to be infinitely useful in my photographer’s toolkit, that is why I am actually excited to be re-ordering it.

• I think I found my new favorite food blog – What Katie Ate.
