!! OMG, ØTHERWØRLDLY: Sølve Sundsbø shoots Tilda Swinton for W Magazine Korea !!

Tilda Swinton W Magazine Korea 2013-005.jpg
Despite an initial lack of attention from the fashion world London-based Norwegian photographer and previous Nick Knight understudy Sølve Sundsbø has now worked with all major fashion houses [Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Cartier, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Gucci, Hermès, Armani and Alexander McQueen to name a few]. Designer Tom Ford applauds his work, having collaborated with him many times over the last couple of decades:

“Sølve is a great talent in the fashion industry…his photographs speak for themselves. They are powerful, beautiful [and] always fresh.”

Working for W Magazine Korea, Sundsbø shoots Tilda Swinton in an editorial entitled ‘The Aura’ in which Swinton poises in an aural albumen of icy blue, clad in Gareth Pugh, Ann Demeulemeester and Haider Ackermann.
Click below to see the remainder of the editorial, plus a brief insight into the historically held interpretation of the blue aura.

!! OMG, TABLE TOPOLOGY: Clare Strand’s ‘Skirts’ !!

EAW0054O_04.jpg
Having posted 2 NSFWs in a row, I thought it best to post something extremely safe for work, because you have to look at something to procrastinate plugging cleaning product sales data into an excel form 8 hours a day.
UK based artist Clare Strand‘s black and white photo series ‘Skirts’ photo-categorizes hired table skirts in a council-owned ballroom. These photos made me laugh so hard I nearly soiled my own skirt.
Anothermag had a chatter natter with Strand about Twin Peaks, table topology and the complex navigation of absurdity. You can also see the remainder of the pleated tabular photo series after the jump.

!! OMG, not Putin up with it: Barbie Breakout’s ‘Open Your Mouth’ [NSFW] !!


Newly divorced “family values” bill-signing Russian President Vladimir Putaaang has made it his sole mission to be a hypocritical INTERNATIONAL DANGLEBERRY. Just like dangleberries he is unwanted, embarrassing and leaves shit stains wherever he hangs out.
In response to said -formerly titled- “law against homosexual propaganda” which stifles, denies and generally suppresses, oppresses and depresses the LGBT community of Russia, German drag queen Barbie Breakout posted the above video which sees her sew her lips shut to represent the attempts of the Russian parliament to violently silence the voices of those who don’t fit into their “traditional sexual relations” closet box.

“The pain I felt inside when I had to see in the media what is happening in Russia was greater than the physical pain of the needle.” _Breakout Barbie

!! OMG, collecting dust: Records made of cremated remains !!

And_Vinyly_750_685_60_s.jpeg
A few months back we posted a record made of ice, an ephemeral piece which would -on listening- likely melt and run all over your record player, your teak dresser and your favorite Disney princess carpet-rug. Well, British company And Vinyly will take that dead Disney princess magic carpet and press it’s cremated remains into a record, which could play the soundtrack of ‘Magic Carpet Ride‘ [aka ‘A Whole New World‘] from Aladin, whilst you weep and [maybe leak] over the loss of several woven Disney princess friends in your own personal -not gay at all- Disney princess wake ! With a little more permanence than that icy leaky disk you bought back when !
If you didn’t buy the ice record so non of this ever ever happened but your Guinea pig called -let’s say- Mr Snugglepusspuss just died, And Vinyly will press that pig in a record, you can select a special sing-a-long song from their online ‘raveyard’ and even have Mr Snugglepusspuss released in record stores..one day an unassuming slightly overfed wad of fuzzy-fluff, the next a global pop sensation, I know £3000 seems a little expensive as an initial investment but -you know- Britney has sacrificed a lot [hair, sanity, lactation, umbrellas] to become the old Mommy Smurfette superstar she is now…

!! OMG, home alone: Kelpe’s ‘Go Visible’ !!


I’m pretty sure when the note reads “make yourself at home” it insinuates that you might take a shower or have a bowl of Kellogg’s Cornflakes not fashion wigs from the pot plants, eat all the eggs in the fridge, sniff the books on the shelf and play ROLY POLY IN THE PRICEY PERSIAN RUG !
From his self-released decade album “Fourth: The Golden Eagle” comes Kelpe’s “Go Visible“.
If I came home and my female friend had gorged on all my eggs and morphed into a shiny black hovering monolith I think I’d get right on Facebook and de-friend that gem-stone right that instant !
