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.
The Fun Issue includes profiles, features, interviews and editorials with the people behind the scenes of the things you love including photographers Ryan Hopkinson, Kim Jakobsen To and Nikola Lamburov - musicians Palma Violets and Elliot Power - actor Ariane Labed - cinematographer Evan Prosofsky and many more.
King Krule, aka Archy Marshall (and once upon a time in 2011, Zoo Kid) has announced a new album, 6 Feet Beneath The Moon, due for release in late August on XL.
We’re pleased to share a preview of photographer Ryan Hopkinson's 'Hall of Mirrors' accessories story from our upcoming issue of Discipline, out in July. The sets were created by Thomas Petherick.
Head over to It’s Nice That for an interview with Ryan and to see some of his most recent work.
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.
Little White Lies is hands down our favourite magazine when it comes to film - the thematically illustrated covers and thoughtfully curated content celebrate the art of film in all its glory, with a healthy dose of wit.
Now, LWL have teamed up with Macmillan Cancer Support and Art Against Knives for a special film-focused exhibition ‘Not For Rental’ at 71a Gallery, featuring exclusive work by an impressive list of illustrators and artists (spy the full list here: notforrentalproject.com/artists), all for a very good cause.
Now you can immerse yourself in the infinitely inspiring world of animation legend Norman McLaren in a distinctly modern way - the National Film Board of Canada have released a new free iPad app that allows users to create their own animation in the style of the master, as well as housing a treasure trove of McLaren’s own work. It’s a fascinating collision of an analogue artform and modern digital culture, showcasing the vast interactive and educational potential of technology in the dusty world of film history.

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…

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.
