!! OMG, she keeps dancing on her own: Michael Langan’s ‘Choros’ !!


Scored by Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians, Michael Langan’s ‘Choros’ traces the female dancer’s movements 32 times over…or she has 31 sisters who are all part of her horribly precise line-dancing troop.
If you enjoy this you should definitely watch 1982’s Fase by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, which was also set to Steve Reich’s music [Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich] and is mind-blowingly intricate and complicated as the dancers ‘share a shadow’ on stage.
I did a miniature version of this in my living room, using two anthropomorphised bottle openers and a flashlight [scored by Bewitched’ ‘C’est La Vie’]…there was an encore featuring an electric wall-mounted tin-opener to rapturous applause!

!! OMG, what a pair: Pantone Pairings by David Schwen !!

Brad and Angelina’s pink wine, Rihanna and Chris’ cake cake cake, the Olsen Twins’ pill purse [ok not really food but still totally edible…here then, a pic of them sharing a cherry-cola with hats that I’m super jealous of]…some food pairings just work.
Designer David Schwen’s Pantone Pairings series takes foods synonymous with one another and makes colour swatches…which I’m totally hoping they make into STRIPY SCRATCH’N’SNIFF WALLPAPER very very soon!
In the meantime, click below to see a few more delectable decoratable colour-combos.

I’m très jaloux of my mister-sister Produzentin [“she’s that girl you like”] who made it to Gaîté Lyrique’s ‘Monsters in Fashion’ exhibition in Gay Paris last week…I’m literally VERDE with envy!
The exhibition, originally called ‘TOYS’, features the spookier-cookier side of fashion, showing pieces by the yikes of Craig Green, Cassette Playa and Rick Owens, plus a few monster-mashups from the monster mayoress [along with many Antwerp luminaries] herself Walter Van Beirendonck:

“In my case, I refer to rituals from ethnic tribes using masks, clothes, and installations around the body to uplift the human to a kind of God”

!! OMG, Painterly: Valentina’s ‘Wolves’ !!


The new video for Valentina’s song ‘Wolves’ was created by English artist Richard Forbes-Hamilton, and fits the song super dooper pooper.
Much better than those blobby potato-prints I made last week, I used massive baking potatoes and lets just say the paintings looked very abstract.
Maybe Valentina could do a POTATO-CRAFT SHOW next…it’s called ‘Valentina’s Potato Patinas’ and her top tip for potato printing is “don’t boil the potatoes”. See, I blooming knew I’d done something wrong.
