Shush Monthly 1: Isle of Gods: the dazzling Wes Anderson
With the recent release of Isle of Dogs, I have once again dived head-first into the world of Wes Anderson. I jumped down the internet rabbit-hole and curated this collection of videos, articles, and music for those looking for a bit more Wes Anderson in their lives.
In this month’s SHUSH publication, you’ll find all things Wes Anderson, retro style, beautiful cinematography, meticulously curated photography, and some words on man’s best friend.
I have fallen in love with kogonada in two ways, first discovering his beautiful debut movie, Columbus, which I watched at Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley, and then discovering his Vimeo channel during my Wes Anderson binge.
A beautiful compilation of Wes Anderson’s best, centered shots.
Even more Wes Anderson, but this time, from above.
Cinephiles often compare the styles of Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick (director of 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, and A Clockwork Orange). Although their movies vary greatly in plot, their directing and cinematography styles can be profoundly similar.
FOOD & DRINK
Playing along the Wes Anderson's beautiful retro colors…
Let’s first take a moment to appreciate the name of Modern Times Beer’s new Brewery in Downtown L.A.
Hands down, the most incredible food or drink institution I’ve ever set my foot in. First the decor draws you in.

Each wall has a curated art piece, from exploding-out-of-the-wall Piñatas to a giant Lite-Bright mural to a diving helmet coffee tap, the Modern Times Dankness Dojo has it all. Bathrooms and columns are covered floor to ceiling in old comics, giving the entire bar a Retro 90’s aesthetic.
Then, the beer. With the Hazy IPA trend ripping through the nation, Modern Times is sure not one to miss out. In April, they had multiple hazy IPAs on tap, and many other beers for connoisseurs to explore.

"COLORS is a unique aesthetic music platform showcasing diverse and exceptional talent from all around the globe."
Basically, COLORS is a beautiful youtube channel that pairs colors, outfits, aesthetic, and live performances together for an ethereal listening experience. In my opinion, many of the performances that artists sing on the channel are better than the recorded versions.
