To kick off the launch of Uncrate Issue 05 and the return of our favorite not-smartphone, the Punkt MP02, we've partnered with Punkt, Grand Classics, and Mark Ronson to host a VIP screening of 1983's The King of Comedy, staring Robert De Niro. Personally selected by Mark Ronson, the film is a timely choice given its direct influence on this month's release of Joker, and as De Niro also appears in Joker as homage to his character in The King of Comedy. On October 16th at the Public Arts venue, at New York's Public Hotel, a select group of guests and friends of Mark Ronson, Punkt, Grand Classics, and Uncrate gathered for the screening and cocktails. Punkt, maker's of minimalist technology, chose to partner with Grand Classics on this screening due the increasingly frustrating effect of smartphones on the film community. Often used to snap pictures that leak a film's plot details well before release, smartphones have become a drag on sets around the world. Punkt's MP02 phone, a camera-less work of art, fixes not only this issue but allows anyone to disconnect from the distracting while remaining connected via a good old fashioned phone call or basic text message. Animoji's need not apply.
If you think you've ever tried wasabi, think again. Most sushi restaurants serve a concoction of horseradish and Chinese mustard tinted with green food coloring. Even the most authentic sushi restaurants serve the fraudulent condiment. The reason is the real stuff is one of the most expensive crops in the world. In this short document, eighth generation farmer Shigeo Iida shares the tradition of growing Wasabia Japonica.
During the height of the Cold War, the US government built 1,000 nuclear ICBM silos across the country, mostly in the Great Plains. As the threat of nuclear war with the Soviets waned, over half of the sites were decommissioned — making them ideal doomsday bunkers for the ultra-rich and paranoid. The Survival Condo Project repurposes these sites built to withstand sustained nuclear war, converting them into condos that can support a family nearly indefinitely.
