Claire Sinclair Interview With COMPLEX Magazine – Talks “Playmate Of The Year” Honors, Role Playing, And Man-Boys

| Jun 2, 2011

Early last month, the coolest man alive bestowed Claire Sinclair , the October 2010 issue’s “Playmate of the Month,” as his 2011 Playmate of the Year. Having just turned 20 years old last week, the buxom Los Angeles native is one of the youngest women to ever hold the title; so young, in fact, that the Las Vegas club promoters that hosted her coronation ceremony had to shuffle her out of the venue immediately after her acceptance speech, due to the rampant alcohol on the premises. See, not all girls have it that inside nightclubs.

Sinclair isn’t your typical Playmate of the Year, though. Aside from her uniquely pre-21 age, she’s a throwback to the old 1950s pin-up days of Bettie Page, whom Sinclair has idolized since she was a little girl; a time when sexy ladies posed in vintage lingerie for the sake of thumbtacks stuck into guys’ bedroom walls. In fact, Hefner has cited Sinclair’s nostalgically sexy look as the reason why he selected her as Playboy’s latest 365-day queen.

The Fader’s Web Sheriff Interview

| Apr 25, 2011

Respect Yourself: Interview with the Web Sheriff
STORY BY: Duncan Cooper

This is a pretty long interview but Britain’s Web Sheriff is a pretty weird thing: an artist-hired, sometimes clandestine but always incredibly personable copyright enforcement agency that continues to leave a very real mark on art on the internet, probably differently than forces before them. The dumbest way of looking at the world is like it’s not changing, and the practices of the Web Sheriff reflect a really smart way of dealing with that: in the words of John Giacobbi, the company’s founder, they engage illegal-file-uploading music fans directly “to turn the perceived negative of anti-piracy to the positive function of viral marketing.” Leveraging essentially well-intentioned criminals for unpaid advertising is incredibly creative and maybe scary, but definitely something that we find, as people who download a ton of stuff, worth thinking about.
