“Sure it’s a big job; but I don’t know anyone who can do it better than I can.” —JFK
“The way I figured it, I was even with baseball and baseball with me. The game had done much for me, and I had done much for it.”
Today would’ve been John Belushi’s 64th birthday, and of all his memorable comedic moments, his turn as half of the outlaw do-gooders in black suits, fedoras and Wayfarers has always resonated with us most. So we’ve dug up some rarely seen photos of him in full Blues Brothers regalia to commemorate Belushi the elder.
Tomorrow marks what would’ve been Ray Eames’s 100th birthday. We’re speaking, of course, about the little lady at the helm of this motorcycle—not to be confused with her husband, and Kempt Icon, Charles. That means she was also at the helm of the most influential husband-and-wife duo in 20th-century American design. The Eames oeuvre has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance over the past few years—by now, Tumblr has probably conditioned you to recognize their molded wood lounger or fiberglass shell chairs on sight. But there was plenty more innovation (and quirkiness) coming out of the Eames design studio: educational math videos, textiles and art.
