CURRENT LISTENING:GIORGIO MORODER: E= MC2

Giorgio Moroder was the producer behind Donna Summer's genius "I Feel Love". There's a famous story, which David Bowie likes to wheel out, about that time in the late 70's when Brian Eno rang him up screaming that he had just heard the future. He dashes over to Bowie's hotel room and puts on "I Feel Love" . " That wonderful soulful singing over that cold Germanic machine music! It's the future!" Eno was said to have declared. He was right. TI loves cold Germanic machine music and this track is taken from Moroder's solo album E=MC 2. Get into the shout-outs to the production team at the end. Hilarious!

I can't quite call it " Current Viewing" because I just stumbled on this short film by the Japanese novelist Mishima via a tip from a TI reader. I'm so in love with cover design of this Criterion DVD however, I just had to post it. Thanks RD! I didn't even know Mishima had made a movie!

SCOOP DU JOUR: IT'S A SWITCH FRENZY

Hiss Hiss...By September shows in NY, a good half dozen of all those CK Jeans/ Hugo Boss/ Armani blue chip faces will have switched agencies. Its like we said at MDC..there seems to be a huge reset going on in the industry these days...And it looks like that July Vogue extravaganza is starting to have an ad impact already. A Very Important Hisser told me today certain clients have instructed our spy to be more "inclusive" in their future ad castings. Very 90's multi-cultural no?
