Aubrey Beardsley – hyllad och hatad dekadent dandy i svartvitt  

Den brittiske illustratören Aubrey Beardsleys (1872-1898) sätt att betrakta och beskriva omvärlden gjorde honom både hyllad och hatad – men framför allt omskriven. Han blev en av det förra sekelskiftets största kändisar, med en stil och ett rykte inte helt olikt en självförbrännande rockstjärnas. Han blev bara tjugofem år. Aubrey Beardsley festade förvisso och beskrevs som ”spöklikt mager”, men anledning till hans död hette tuberkulos, en då obotlig sjukdom. Men under sitt korta liv och karriär gjorde han intryck, som gett avtryck ända in i vår tid. Han förekommer på affischer, skivomslag och i modevärlden – där hans ande svävar bland samtida illustratörer, på olika vis. Snyggt klädd var han också. I veckans STIL berättar vi mer om denne märklige man.

Aubrey Beardsleys stilrena garderob var influerad av den franske poeten Charles Baudelaires tankar och texter om "dandyism". Genom att klä sig medvetet nedtonat, men mycket omsorgsfullt, kunde man genom sin stil markera att man tillhörde, eller ville tillhöra, en ny typ av intellektuell elit, menade Baudelaire (som själv alltid bar helsvart). Och intellektuell var Aubrey Beardsley, utan tvekan. Han slukade böcker och sög i sig kunskap som en svamp. Även böcker om medicin där han studerade illustrationerna på aborterade foster och exempel på hur olika sjukdomar kunde vanställa kroppar. Det fick han nytta av som illustratör. Men han hade även koll på modetidningar och visste vad han tyckte om dåtidens överlastade dammode - löjligt. Kvinnorna i hans illustrationer bär ofta långt mer bekväma känningar. Under andra halvan av 1960-talet ställde Victoria & Albert Museum i London ut hans bilder - som passade tidens trender. Hans bilder med erotiska och "dekadenta" inslag snappades snabbt upp olika rockband. Beatles omslag till Revolver är inspirerad av hans stil, och han är en av personerna på omslaget av skivan Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, från 1967. De är långt ifrån ensamma om att ha inspirerats. I veckans program har vi tittat närmare på psykedeliska konsertaffischer från 1960-talets San Francisco. Under den här tiden jobbade radioveteranen Lennart Wretlind i en liten skivbutik strax söder om San Francisco. Han sparade affischerna som han nu - 47 år senare - ställer ut på Rönnells antikvariat i Stockholm. Vi har också pratat med illustratören Liselott Watkins som ofta fått höra att hennes illustrationer påminner om just Aubrey Beardsleys. Om henne talar vi om vikten av pennor med. Och så har vi mött Sven Bertil Bärnarp som varje vecka tecknar serien "Medelålders plus" i Dagens Nyheter. Veckans gäst är Björn Atldax, konstnär och illustratör och en av männen bakom Cheap Mondays döskallelogga.

Accidental Hero  

“It was a relief to see the team sheet and to find out that Beardsley was not there,” said Lenny Lawrence, the Charlton manager, “Instead they started with somebody we didn’t know. The relief turned very quickly into sheer horror. They set Ronnie on us and he tormented us that day.” In Episode Fifty Eight of the Blizzard Podcast we revisit 'Accidental Hero' by Shaul Adar from Issue Eighteen, first published back in September 2015. In it, he looks at one of the unsung heroes from Liverpool's last title winning side of 1989-90: supersub Ronnie Rosenthal. Signed on loan until the end of the season to provide a spark to a Liverpool side who were flagging under the weight of the number of games they were playing, as well as the psychological trauma of dealing with the Hillsborough tragedy, the Israeli provided a much needed injection of pace and aggression up front, and contributed with some key goals and assists to help Liverpool lift their 18th and most recent league title.

Issue Eighteen, like all issues of The Blizzard, is available on a pay-what-you-like basis from Digital downloads cost as little as 1p each (RRP £3), while a print versions are available from £6 + postage.

TMHS 184: Go For Your Win - With Aubrey Marcus  

Billie Jean King said, “A champion is afraid of losing. Everyone else is afraid of winning.”

It’s not that we are incapable of winning. It’s not that the life of our dreams is out of our reach. It’s the fact that many of us forfeit our shot to go for our win because of unwarranted fear and a few other nasty ingredients.

Well, what if you got your hands on the ingredients for a much tastier recipe where YOU get to live the life that you were destined to? That’s exactly what you’re going to get access to today. On this episode we have the founder and CEO of the mega-successful human optimization company Onnit, the great Aubrey Marcus.

Aubrey is the walking, talking example of what living a great looks like. He’ll definitely argue that it wasn’t always like that. At one point he was down to his last dollar working to make his dream come true. Now he runs a multi-million dollar company that’s ushered in a new wave of integrity and care into the supplement and sports performance industry. He went for his win and there was no looking back. Many years and life lessons later, Aubrey is on a mission to share what he’s learned along the way. I’m excited to share this with you and I hope this is a catalyst for you to go for your win too!

In this episode you'll discover: Why the nucleus is not really the “brain” of your cells. What it means to Go For Your Win. What it means to have a purpose deficiency. What the two parts of your mission are (this is important!). How to uncover what your passion is. How to create connections with others that can help you to live a rich life. Why your beliefs are a strong indicator of whether you’ll be successful or not. Why choice is really a superpower. What it means to practice toughness. What the primary force of resistance is in your life. How to gracefully deal with attachment. How to handle and traverse through apathy to be your best self. Items mentioned in this episode include:
