Legendary musician Lou Reed passed away recently, and prompted a re-assessment of his artistic legacy. Among which, his photographic journey was the most interesting to me. You can see some of his work here.
Sony released the Playstation 4 console recently, and have been aggressively promoting the system with TV ads. Being a fervent NFL fan, I am bombarded with up to 10 of these commercials each Sunday. It so happens that a Lou Reed song is used in the commercial.
Over the weekend I watched Trainspotting for the first time. It is an amazing movie featuring a gaunt Ewan McGregor, and well worth the 90 minutes spent. Incidentally, there is a scene of his character OD-ing on heroin, during which the same song by reed comes on.
Now I can’t watch the PS4 spot without thinking about heroin addiction.
