'The Fun Issue' - The Second Issue of Discipline is Out Now

Our cover star Susan Boyle is joined by John Prescot, Tom Cruise and Leslie Nielsen in an exclusive feature by Carl Burgess.

The pursuit of ‘LOLs’ and ‘likes’ is about instant and permanent fun. It’s about ditching the dull and provoking the standard. The second issue of Discipline is a celebration of the big business of fun, where bold is always better. We take a look at the makers and thinkers setting themselves apart from the crowd and we witness just how much hard work and discipline real fun takes.

Jordan McGarry Tells us 10 Things She Likes a Lot - From Our Last Issue

From our last issue: Jordan McGarry, Senior Curator at Vimeo, gave us a list of 10 things she likes a lot. 

1.  Orlando Von Einsiedel at Grain Media

I worked with him on a project for Dazed & Confused and Diesel years ago. He made a brilliant film about skateboarding that he shot fearlessly in Afghanistan. Lately he’s been out in the Congo working to highlight an amazing cause. He is incredibly brave. This is quite difficult to watch in places.

2. “The Storytelling Animal” - Jonathan Gottschall

A fascinating book from one of my favourite speakers at the Vimeo Festival + Awards. There is an excerpt on his site.

Learn From a Master With the New Norman McLaren App

102 Tracks to Define Your Summer, chosen by Diplo

Vulture asked producer/DJ Diplo to put toghether the “ultimate summer barbecue mix”, and he dutifully picked out over 100 tracks in response. It’s the next best thing to having Diplo himself DJing at your party - there’s a little bit of everything with a focus on the kind of big party tunes that get pretty much everyone moving, whatever they’re into. 

Now here’s hoping there’s enough summer ahead of us to play all 102 tracks…

Smythson Spring into Spring with a Playful New Film

It’s fair to say we love Smythson here at Discipline. They perfectly tread the line between heritage and modernity – a 125 year-old luxury goods brand that still appeals to contemporary tastes. They’ve just unveiled a rather upbeat new spring film, directed by Milanese filmmaker Virgilio Villoresi, which perfectly showcases their unique blend of fine craftsmanship and playfulness.
