Browsing Esty today for what i cant remember because somehow i stumbled across the macabrely beautiful art of Ramon Maiden. Vintage posters & prints of women and military men adorned with his tribal/symbolic doodling, wooden hand etched tattoo pieces,custom razor blade collages…im hooked, love, liked and now shared (more…)
Jeff Leach stopped asking me out for dinner about a year ago, we first met in 2007, im so glad he finally got the message ;) Its not that i dont find him ridiculously attractive or his hip-hop speak when addressing me amusing, my polite refusals were more to do with the fact that he is just not boyfriend material…see above and be prepared Edinburgh he’s coming…for your women! (more…)
2 days before the coporate spectacle, and hey presto two new Banksys (source) nice But where are they exactly? Graffitti hunt ahoy please can anyone let me know if you find them
I dont wanna say anything that will detract from the effortless cuteness dripping from this picture.
Perfect for soaking up tears
Somehow whilst internet surfing this morning i stumbled upon Fab Ciraolo and his amazing illustrated design work, my favorite, above, is my new screen saver. I didnt think Marelene D could be more dope than she already was but with a sleeve and chest tatt?!? Stop it already! More amazing artwork can be found by Fab on his blog. (more…)
I fucking love this lady, she would probably hate me due to my uneducated feminist angst, i love her even more for that!
Love the little animation above the Google search box today, a series of contemporary dances moves by the late Martha Graham pictured above.
The above has made me smile more times than i care to mention this week. An awesome project which needs no explanation really thanks to its ‘does what it says on the tin’ namesake, check out the site by clicking the pic above, browse the photos and keep your eyes open next time your on the tube in Laaaan Daaan Taan
Honestly i have no idea what this is all about….however what i do know is that it stars Europes number one party girl on the underground (seriously shes everywhere!) Pippi Eluschka and her fabulous friends hangin in a Laundry Mat, seriously put a smile on my face this arvo….my laundry is so dirty
Lately i cant help but take photos with the black and white function on my camera, even in the most modern of settings i love the way it turns any scene into a 40′s snap shot, timeless and quite genius. (my snaps are in the Flickr photos top left in sidebar)Watching The Dreamers last night i made the link between the recent hue of my snaps and my Brassai obsession which began about this time last year. Wishing i lived when he did in Paris armed with a fierce set of post war suspenders and a camera. In that booth, that embrace, slipping into the misty shadows at the end of the street, red wine, smoke, velvet, metal, white tiles and cobble stones…
Annoying but not at all usual, sudden and quite unexplained, embarrassing in public and highly inconvenient at the departure gate…
Pop Justice tweeted yesterday that if i work in an office i should play this really loud, i agree but seeing as its the weekend im expanding that suggestion to where ever you are play it loud and boogie with Herr STyler on a Saturday
One thing that always baffles me about gigs i do is the amount of pictures/videos people look like their taking. What happens to them afterwards, i always wonder, as only a handful trickle down through facebook and the like. In particular my past tour in South America had the most amount of people in all 5 gigs waving cameras in the air (or standing still whilst achieve perfect framing) whilst i was performing…my questions is where did all the evidence go? In particular i request the help of my Santiago homies to find the Photographer (or videographer as he is in the above shot) with the red jumper and black A’s hat in the centre of the above picture, taken by Manuel de Fierro at Caja De Ritmos.. he was taking pictures of me at the sound check and then through out the night, very curious as to what exactly he was doing…. Any way easier to find and with awesome results i must link up the rest of the galleries from the people who took the time to upload their shots of all the action, Fede Welbe @ +160, Black Magic Sounds Venezuela and of course all the Sub Grave Sao Paulo crew
Somewhere in my frontroom is a monster, its present location is currently unknown. This unsettles me somewhat, having met if face to face only once i cannot be to sure of its exact type or species but one thing is for sure, its big and i dont like it. Sitting here on the couch half asleep i swear its somewhere watching me with its beady little eyes *skin crawling*. Fight the fear i must, be at one with the beast and so a dedication, to take this creepy crawly feeling away, ode to the eight legged invader.
Im here finally, living here til the end of Oct, i know its only for a short while but still right now im here… (more…)
San Franciso Mueseum of Modern Art, or SFMOMA are funny, they tweeted this yesterday for the Home Alone stars birthday!!
Its mid week Wednesday, so why not champion weird and wonderful, and think positivly! Lets do it all at the same time by watching the master of surrealism Salvidor Dali from the 50′s TV show ‘Whats my line?’ I swear this cracks me up everytime, you see the panel have to ask yes or no questions to decipher what his profession is, however Dali can answer yes to nearly all of them, ‘is there anything this man doesn’t do’?! So inspired by Mr Dali and some PMA from yesterdays social networking im going about the day with a big YES. Just dont ask to borrow any money ya spoil sports
One Night Stand (2010) Directed and produced by Jack Tew and Dave Humphreys
Its a weekday so hopefully not alot of you woke up to this predicament….
Artwork by Mark Trashynsky is finished for my feature with Mutated Forms….some people say we look like the Ghostbusters in this pic…just who in the Ghostbusters had an afro, the black guy had a skiffle mate! Anyways the single was written early this year and based on the thought process after an unknown goodbye, ‘Last Time‘ is out very soon on Allsorts, shouts to Crissy Criss for the support and of course the Mutated Lads, cant wait to work with ya’ll again
A week back today i was at Alexandra Park in Manchester enjoying the Mosside Carnival, the first time i’d been there in over 12 years! Shocked as i was to see Jesus and Harry Potter there i was even more surprised by the beautiful weather and rather pleasent crowd of all ages, creeds and cultures peacefully enjoying the some what community lead entertainment and tasty but pricey food. Snap happy as always here some pics from a very fun sunday… (more…)
Trying to understand the logic behind the latest crop circle whilst at my sisters with N-Dubz playing in the background (on the radio) equalled a very confused Jenna. It was the complete oppositeness of text i was reading to tex i could hear spoken that proved all to much for my fragile little mind. Heres an example…. (more…)
