Norwegian Wood jewellery gems

BLOG POSTED BY LIFELOUNGESTAFF ON 06 APR 2010 @ 09:38 AM
Canadian designer Angie Johnson makes (along with some pretty embellished attire) some of the loudest costume jewellery that doesn't involve name-plates or fake gems. Her just released chain harness is beautiful and a little S&M-ish, but her extreme fringed necklaces and earrings are big fun too.

All available at etsy.com.

Lucia Fischer – The Holga Diaries II

BLOG POSTED BY 3DE8AEAC ON 23 MAR 2010 @ 09:45 AM
The Holga Diaries II is a raw and gritty double take of the urban landscapes and city streets of Europe as viewed by artist Lucia Fischer through the lens of her Holga camera. Captured on vagabond wanderings and travels, this body of work presents a series of hazy and desolate dreamscapes that evoke a sentimentality of times past and whose nostalgic presentation can be best described as hazy, dark and silent.

This second series on subjective documentation of urban environments, is an extension of her first Holga Diaries series. Compiled together from images brought back from my recent trip to Europe, the artist explains her visual story as:

"Travels seen through the eye of my holga camera. Holga the vagabond in Prague looking for the grit and grime of times past. The drifter in Vienna walking the cobblestone streets worn down by the characters of history. The wanderer in Venice tracing the gondola filled canals. The rogue in Hamburg listening to the melodies of the ages."

Holga is the brand name of my camera, a cheap plastic toy intended for mass market snap happy photography. It was originally a novelty item I purchased once on a trigger happy ebay night but later he grew to become my constant companion. For the past three years he has lived in my handbag, I take him to the beach, he comes out drinking, he gets dropped, he gets wet, he is a little rickety and sometimes he even pops open and splits in two. He is prone to light leaks, vignetting, blur and perspective distortion and it is these elements of chance and mishap that attract me to him. Because it is these raw and imperfect qualities that create expression beyond artist intent and allow for the intervention of fate and the image in its own action.

This will be Lucia’s third solo exhibition and will show a series of limited edition framed photographic prints. The exhibition will open at aMBUSH Gallery, 4A James Street, Waterloo (Sydney) on Friday the 9th of April 2010 at 6:00pm and continue Wednesday to Saturday from 12pm to 4pm until April 18th 2010.



ChatRoulette piano improv by Merton

BLOG POSTED BY CRAZYZO2000 ON 20 MAR 2010 @ 03:57 AM
Perfect for adding a little amusement to a boring day, especially if you come across the individuals who get really creative with it (and by "it", I don't mean their man parts). Anyways, Merton is my new favorite, and not gunna lie, I want to play ChatRoulette with my best friend who showed me this clip tonight, in hopes of running intothis improv mastermind. (While hoping to avoid as many chronic M-Bators as possible).


Also, here are a couple of unrelated links that caught my eye recently.

Maybe if you wore this dress, Robert Pattinson would glitter in the sun for you.


Lady Gaga and Beyonce against the entire world – Telephone

BLOG POSTED BY FUJIKO-SAN ON 13 MAR 2010 @ 08:15 PM

'Telephone' starring Lady Gaga and Beyonce is out to be seen: heavy handed on the Tarantino references, huge helping of Caged Heat, but 9 minutes 32 seconds later I had to watch it again.

 

It’s either brilliant or a total circus. The jury is out.  

 

But frankly who cares because who wouldn’t want to watch a video featuring weight-lifting, grandma inmates, hot Latinas, full-on girl-fights, lesbian jail-love, and Gaga herself channeling everyone (Billy Idol, Amy Winehouse, Naomi Campbell, Josie and the Pussycats, David Lachapelle, Micheal Jackson, Bette Davis, Thelma & Louise and Betty Crocker…), plus dressing like the wonderful fashion nightmare we know and love!

 

Let’s not forget Beyonce in black lipstick spouting dialogue just like a "real actress" (so cute!), eating honey rolls and wearing epaulettes (Yes! Epaulettes!), riding around in a Pussy Wagon, dressing like a Texas banana and killing people with Gaga (who, for the occasion, is wearing 'Telephone Hat No. 2').  

 

Sound nutty? Well, the damn video just gets better and better.

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

"I told you she didn’t have a dick."

"Police are searching for two women said to be fleeing the scene of the crime in a Pussy Wagon."

"I knew you’d steal all of my honey!"

"You’ve been a bad, bad, bad girl, Gaga!"

 

…plus some other crap someone thought would be clever while they were doing a lot of coke.



The new sounds of Jinja Safari

BLOG POSTED BY ELECTRICFEATHERS ON 12 MAR 2010 @ 02:24 PM
The person on the beach slowly grooves on their own. Beginning to clap, they start dancing in a flailing-limbed and animalistic fashion. Pipes, drums, flutes, lutes and a sitar played by a raccoon provide the beats and harmonies reminiscent of Neverneverland. This, friends, is the sound of newcomers Jinja Safari. Based on the East Coast of Australia, they are set to release an album around mid 2010. Get yourself involved in their musical jungle and join their family of forest rock.
