Art You Know I’m Very Busy!

February 10, 2012 Leave a comment

It has happened again that rare occurrence where someone has used the internet to do something awesome!

Using the very contemporary idea of the “remix” Irene Gallo of tor.com has put together some great (and some not so great) works of art remixed, cut up, chopped and screwed, or what ever your preference.

John Mattos resets Marcel Duchamp‘s “Nude Descending a Staircase” and Pablo Picasso‘s “Three Musicians





























Kind of reminds me of the stop motion videogame art

Luke Radi resets Norman Rockwell‘s “The Runaway”


















Good for a little laugh if nothing else.

This is Kreayshawn she is a rapper. BUT she is also a video shooter -> edit0r -> director. This is her demo reel from the summer 2009 (kinda dated but what you gonna do) of course i love the song…

sometimes she is in videos

sometimes she gets interviewed with creepy dudes behind her

Rapper+shooter+editor+director+personality das a five tool playa. Whatever “it” is shes got some of it I think she has a chance.

STOPPPP Grammy Time!!! oh woo oh woo

February 14, 2011 Leave a comment

The Grammies were last night, I didn’t watch it because I have much better things to do with my time ….. and I’ve got absolutly nothing going on ….. I spent part of the time shredding old mail, and another portion cleaning my belly button. This says something about the grammies award show (not nessicarly the award). Honestly I think i’ve seen lady gaga be an attention whore and Justin Bieber prancing around somewhere before …..OH YEA ….. every god damn time i turn on, look at, or even get near any sort of media device…… I can’t get away from it ….. the best tweet i saw all night on the grammies was “if Lady Gaga REALLY wants to suprise everyone, why doesn’t she just show up in a normal outfit? Everyone would just die”

I did however look at some pictures on TMZ this morning and thats pretty much the same thing as being there so i will endevor to break it down for you.

First things first my golden child of the music business La Roux WON A GRAMMY for best dance album of the year. Everyone knows about my La Roux obsession so as expected I was happy about this. CONGRATULATIONs it was well deserved.

This girl here is like the anti-Kelly Osbourne ……errrrr…..wait that IS KELLY OSBOURNE are you freaking kidding me…..I bet I could have given you a million guesses and you would have never guessed this was Kelly Osbourne WTF happened she looks like she strolled over to the gig from her sorority house at USC. She does look good here no doubt but I have mixed feelings.

Ummmm do those jeans have a rubber nipple in the back that you hook your vacuum to and suck all the air out to vacuum seal them to your legs and balls….Like those space saver travel bags….I know you’ve fully come out and all but that still doesn’t justify this….

I didn’t realize Athena was nominated for anything this year……and where is Zeus (I bet the tabloids are buzzing about that).

Is that he-man wearing a red wig and a dress? P.S. you’re at the Grammies would it kill your hipster ass to crack a smile or at least not look like some one just told you to take out the trash, or wash the dishes…..

 

I see the traditional use of massive amounts of cocaine (most likely along with some potent psychedelics) is still alive and well in the music business. Some things are sacred.

where to even begin….I almost had to skip this one b/c her outfit is giving me vertigo….Seventy year Italian women working the make-up counter at Sears in New Jersey think that’s tacky. What can you expected from some one with a fake ass (literally). Here’s a rule of thumb if you’re going to suck, at least suck being yourself ….we already have Lady Gaga…and before that we had Madonna (the only one of the three that made good music, which is a problem since theoretically they are all 3 musicians).  Nicki Minaj is clearly something that was put together by some MBA‘s in a board room by people trying to create “what americans want”. This my friends is their best effort…..and they wonder why they can’t make any money any more….. here is a hint ONE THING THAT WE WANT OUT OF OUR MUSICIANS IS THAT THEY MAKE MUSIC THAT IS GOOD (see la roux above) AND THAT ISN’T GOING TO HAPPEN IN A BOARD ROOM OR VIA A VIDEO CONFERENCE. SO GET OFF YOUR ASS AND GO FIND SOME TALENT and, and this part is very important BY TALENT I MEAN MUSICAL TALENT NOT PORN POTENTIAL TALENT NOT SOMEONE YOU SAW ON A STRIPPER POLE THAT YOU FIGURED WILL SLAP SOME ASS IMPLANTS ON HER AND WE GOT A HIT……..if I want porn i’ll go watch porn, and the people that feel about fashion the way I feel about porn, when they want fashion they can go look at fashion BUT when we are looking for MUSIC from MUSICIAN what we are looking for is …. wait for it …. GOOD MUSIC … I know there has been some musicians that have become style icons etc. but people forget the ones that have done it were really good musicians first (madonna, david bowie to name a few) who just happen to have the other things along with it BUT YOU CAN’T SKIP THE MUSIC PART…..alright enough with that.

hmmmm new rule puffy shoulders don’t really work if you’re under 4’10”, you’re getting dangrously close to the hedgehog look.

You’re probably asking right now why not the hate for snooki like for Nicki Minaj? Because Snooki and all the Jersey Shore kids are who they are they’re not trying to be something they’re not. They’re were not trying to synthetically appeal to what people who have never been any where but Manhattan and LA think “americans want” they are how they are and they do what they do love it or hate it. I think that’s why the show was shocking to some people and why it has worked in part….take note music business we want people who are who they are regardless of what that is (see la roux above).

Since they made you leave your pistols in the green room you probably should have left your holster there too, and typically it is worn under your jacket. I just say that because I appreciate the attempt to at a very respectful, appropriate, and classy outfit but you TOTALLY fucked it up by wearing that OSHA safety harness over it. It’s just an awards show my friend I don’t think you have to be tied off for this one……..

This one was in the section “cute couples” but to capture the cute couple here they should have made the shot:

Oh and when did Steve Buscemi get married to J-Lo …. I guess that’s why he hasn’t made any movies in a while… If I was married to J-Lo I’d be prrrrrettttty busy myself…. might not see me around too often either.

how short do you have to be to make Paul Wall look tall….that dude must be a gnome….

Ponch put out a new album this year?

You and your bubby’s went through all the trouble to get all dressed up in expensive slick suits and roll out like a wanna be brat pack (or the guys from Swingers) and you go and screw it all up by not shaving……this is important the sound you hear in the back ground is your 15 minutes ticking down and then all you will have is the memories, memories you F#$%ed up by not shaving……

There you have it an all access inside pass to the Grammies. Now it’s like you were actually there also. So until we meet again I bid you adieu.

I’m weeping openly right now…..
It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen

Vodpod videos no longer available.

It is part of Swiss artist Guillaume Reymonds “Game Over” project, now this my friends is what art is all about (*interestingly I’m really not sure at all whether I mean the last statement sincerely or if it is sarcastic, which speaks to the information overloaded confusion of the present day, which perhaps is what makes the simplicity of these games seem comforting)… Just as the Realism movement brought comfort to humanity with its pastoral scenes, Impressionism brought joy to the world showing emotion through the use of color, Art Deco celebrated the burgeoning industrial and technological world and pointed the way forward to the egalitarianism it provided, and Abstraction symbolized the great chaos and incredible pace of modern life …. when my generation is in need of inspiration we look to ….. wait for it….. **drumroll please** …. pac-mac. I’m sure we would find this troubling if we weren’t too nihilistic to care … even if we had the attention span to notice and process, but this is not the case so I say lets roll with it …. I mean the mother F’in Dalai Lama has a verified twitter account so what did you expect?

And you must admit this is one of the coolest things you’ve seen in a while. It really does have a similarity to the Andy Warhol Soup cans or Marilyn Monroe thing, no?

but really if pac-man ain’t art then what is

Tetris?
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Space Invaders?
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Pole Position?
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Pong?
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Finally someone is making use of the internet for something besides pr0n or people getting hit in the nuts or shooting themself in the face with a water melon…..

However it does fail in 2 critical areas:

1. No frogger …. frogger would have been the perfect vehicle for this and could have tied in with the Seinfeld episode for even more pop culture panache.

2. Clearly the project should be called “g4m3 0v312” … plz this in internet and video game 101 I shouldn’t have to tell you this.

Still all in all well done!

Le Singe approves of this retrotechnogeekiodvideofriedfunkfuture movement!

TELEVISION!! … I’ll admit I indulged in some tonight, and frankly I saw some disturbing stuff…..

Guess who starring in a new movie ….

Piranha

That’s right PIRANHAS!! now don’t get me wrong piranhas are pretty rad (albeit very ugly), but are they really enough to carry a whole movie? Furthermore the movie is in 3-D, but piranha’s always work best when they are the unseen terror, don’t they? Where everything looks normal till a water buffalo tries to ford the river and all of a sudden they tear his ass up like 100 Tiger Woods’ would do to some hookers. So piranhas really don’t work in 3-D.

So it looks like the people at comedy central are getting lazy. They are roasting David Hasslehoff. That’s kinda like shooting fish in a barrel isn’t it? Do you really need to roast David Hasslehoff? Hasn’t real life done that well enough already. You know its bad when Hulk Hogan and Pam Anderson are the classiest people there. I guess Comedy Central didn’t get the memo.

Animal Planet is just as bad …

Shorty's Rescue

Pit Boss … How did they come up with this one did they write down a bunch of stuff that’s popular right now on scraps of paper and pick two out of a hat … “we got pit bulls and midgets!! run with it!!!”

And while we are on that, exactly how much cocaine did the programing exec’s have to do in their meeting to think that making a show out of the Geico cavemen was a good idea?

geico-cavemen-restaurant_display_image

I mean someone had to look at this and be like “I think we got a winner here”, and presumably at least a few other people had to agree. UNBELIEVEBLE for the love of god the commercials were getting stale by the time they came out with that….

I think I’m sticking with the internet….

Kick Start my Heart – Motley Crüe Best Hair Band Song Ever?

August 14, 2010 Leave a comment

 It depends is “Living on a prayer” – Bon Jovi a hair band song? Bon Jovi is a hair band … “Living on a prayer” is a classic

“Living on a prayer” is an epic tune … when nearly 25 years after it’s release the LSU band plays it and stops playing on the last refrain and you can’t even tell because so many people are singing along that’s saying something. Clearly “living on a prayer” is a better song, but I don’t know if it really captures the essence of what the hair band was all about and “Kick Start My Heart” captures it perfectly. So despite “Living on a prayer” being a better song “Kick Start My Heart” is still the ultimate hair band song of all time. Agree?
