Last time we went to a garage sale, we found He-Man action figures and a poster of some crappy Charles Grodin early 1990s movie, and this dude finds “65 glass plates in boxes of photographic negatives created more than 80 years ago by Ansel Adams”? Well, that is just great. Why isn’t Charles Grodin an icon like Ansel Adams?

Oh, these are the long-lost images of Ansel Adams, the missing link in the history of one of the most iconic American photographers to ever live? Oh how cute, the man who owns these now, Rick Norsigian, was looking for a barber chair. Wonder if he ever found it? Why aren’t they doing some investigative reporting on that?

Being married to Jarvis Cocker of Pulp for a bit (we think they may be divorced) is definitely helping up the icon factor here, but in our editor AK’s eyes, Camille Bidault-Waddington is a fashion/style icon. She hangs with the Purple Magazine crowd, too, which ups the ante.

The London Guardian on golf’s fallen hero

The London Guardian’s Gary Younge wrote a really great piece on the fallen idol that was Tiger Woods. It spans his first push onto the international stage by winning the Masters at age 21, to his ascent as a multiracial hero, to becoming the greatest golfer ever, to world icon, to sex scandal tragedy, to the questions that remain of his legacy now.

A good excerpt, regarding the aftermath of his sex issues…

Instead these transgressions were not understood as the tarnishing of racial purity but the contamination of a commercial brand. Those called to the podium to claim ownership or express distance were not the likes of Jesse Jackson, but Accenture and Nike – his sponsors. It was a brand, as James Surowiecki argued in the New Yorker as the story was breaking in December 2009, that was built on “the embodiment of bourgeois virtues: dedication, hard work, single-mindedness”
