So this morning I hit timezone this had a go at the ‘double mirror paranoia revolution challenge’ on Dance Dance Revolution X3 and it turns out that some jerk was filming me.
Think the same bastard nicked my shoes and my sleeves.
Who’d of thunk ‘marvellous’ would be beyond ‘perfect’
I’ve no idea what’s going on in Alex van Warmerdam’s new film Borgman, but it looks pretty scary
Synopsis: Is he a dream or a demon, a twisted allegory or an all-too-real embodiment of our fears? BORGMAN is a sinister arrival in the sealed-off streets of modern suburbia. His presence unleashes a crowing gallery of distortion around the careful façade constructed by an arrogant, comfortable couple, their three children and nanny.
Check the new trailer for Refn’s new Bankok ball buster Only God Forgives
Kirsten Scott Thomas plays the cranky type pretty well huh?
I hope that Ryan and that Thai cop dude can work out between them who really is the strong silent type, without resorting to violence.
If anyone is super keen there’s a slightly different international trailer too
Kenojuak Ashevak RIP
(October 3, 1927 – January 8, 2013)
FineLine: We’re loving the honest simplicity of these pieces by Inuit folk artist Kenojuak Ashevak. Seemingly borrowed from another time, her confident use of color and composition is really refreshing. These pieces are from her Birds series, courtesy of 50watts.
Ashevak passed this January at the age of 85. For more information about her read on:
“One of the best known and most acclaimed Inuit artists of the last 50 years, Kenojuak Ashevak, is being remembered by many across Canada this week…. Ashevak began contributing to the famed Cape Dorset print collections in 1959, and […] contributed to them every year since, right up until the fall 2012 release.”
"I Am A Man" poster from the 1968 Memphis sanitation workers’ strike
Wiki: Historically, in countries such as the U.S. and South Africa, the term “boy” was used as a pejorative racist insult towards men of color and slaves, indicating their subservient social status of being less than men. In response, Am I Not A Man And A Brother? became a catchphrase used by British and American abolitionists. In 1787, Josiah Wedgwood designed a medallion for the British anti-slavery campaign. He copied the original design from the Society for Effecting the Abolition of the Slave Trade as a cameo in black-and-white. It was widely reproduced and became a popular fashion statement promoting justice, humanity and freedom.
"I Am a Man!" has been used as a title for books, plays and in film to assert the rights of all people to be treated with dignity. "I Am a Man!" signs were used in Arabic language Ana Rajul during the Arab Spring.
CA: The National Civil Rights Museum has two of the 1968 posters on display. Andrews said the origin of the “I Am A Man” slogan remains a mystery.
"There are several versions of where that came from," she said. "You just can’t substantiate it. We tried for a number of years, and the more people I asked, the more people who claimed it."
Just add ‘some kind of a’ to this and maybe it would apply to me.
(Maybe in fineprint as to not ruin the great lines of the letters.)
