Tricia Messeroux is making me feel weird. Like, when you hear that someone has dressed a bunch of toddlers up as celebrities it sounds cute and awesome, right? Surely I'm not alone in finding a mo on a baby the pinnacle of hilarity.
However the New York-based photographer has taken it that one step further, and actually placed the children in movie posters. And maybe it's just me, but she could not have chosen more awkward situations for toddlers to be in.
UM, SO TRICIA? The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
is basically one long story about rape, murder and physical/psychological abuse. The Help
is about discrimination, miscarriages and physical/psychological abuse. Bridesmaids
has the word "Virgin" on the poster, AND I FEEL WEIRD ABOUT THAT. Just, don't. Make it stop.

The Mondo Spider is by no means a new thing. We know dis. But someone put it across our screens again recently and it still isn't any less awesome/terrifying now than it was when we first saw it.
It's been a feature at Burning Man which, i'll you right now, if I saw in the middle of Nevada desert half naked, painted in silver and cross eyed on acid, i'd probably never sleep ever again.
Humans shouldn't drive spiders.
"Kendrick have a dreaaam!". On a hot night in Melbourne, lovers of hip hop gathered at the Palace theater to see the newly anointed King of West Coast rap, Kendrick Lamar. And lemme tell ya, he did not disappoint.
When 'internet famous' acts come to our shores it's a pretty safe bet that they won't meet your expectations. After months of reading about their talent, listening to carefully curated (and usually, short) mixtapes and following their witty quips on Twitter, when you finally see them in the flesh they often don't match up to the Pitchfork perfect image. However Lamar definitely lives up to the buzz, with his songs from good kid, m.A.A.d city
even more impressive IRL. Only live can you really appreciate his actual skill, the speed at which he rhymes is kind of lost when you listen to him through your headphones.
Everyone bounced to 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe', when mental to 'Backstreet Freestyle' and 'Money Trees' proved to be the highlight of the night. But the coolest thing about the night was how much material he played from Section.80
. Dude still remembers where he came from, and there's something refreshing about that.

Got a spare 17 months? You could make your own DIY Daft Punk helmet, if you wanted.
The borderline genius Volpin
will show you how:
The time has come again for the Melbourne and Sydney dance community to unite in a throbbing sweaty mass at Melbourne's home of late night hedonism, New Guernica, for the bi-tri-quad monthly Road House and Slow Blow extravaganza, New Eden - Return To Paradise.
It's a bit of a Modular/Motorik showcase this month with a couple of special guests on board to really keep the jive alive.
SLOW BLOW (Modular/Syd)
SOFT WAR (Modular/Syd)
DJ BUTTFUCK (Motorik/Hoodrat/Syd)
JOBIN (Your hostesses with the mostestes)
These parties are always madness and need to be experienced in order to fully understand.
If you and a mate wanna hit it up for free, then shoot your name to firstname.lastname@example.org
And coz they're such awesome legends, Slow Blow have concocted a lovely little mix for the occasion to get your juices flowing and the sap rising.
So basically everybody in the entire world is going to Meredith
tomorrow. Whatever. Glitter and music and fun are totally overrated anyway. I wouldn't even go if you offered me a free ticket*, because you know what you can't do at Meredith? Watch this film clip directed by Sam Jones
for Boody & Le1f
over and over and over again until you're fresh2death.
You may have Grimes
but WE'VE got the internets and a relatively decent set of headphones, so shut the fuck up and just go already.
Seriously though. Will induce inappropriate body rolling/booty poppin'.
*TICKET GIVER AWAY-ERS PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY.
