!! OMG, puss puss: Paris Kain’s ‘Octo-Pussy’ !!


We started Tuesday with the 8-legged puss, so we’ll end with some more ‘Octo-Pussy’:
Wearing a Rick Owens SS 2011 leather shoulder-dress [stolen no-doubt from URSULA’S UNDERWATDROBE] artist Taiana Giefer plays with her Octo-Pussy for –Alexander Wang collaborator- Paris Kain’s new short.
He had this to say of the mystical puss-puss:

“In tarot, the octopus represents insight and esoteric vision. It is in constant motion, waxing and waning to the moon and guided by its goddess the High Priestess”

!! OMG, Ursula’s lighting collection for Bed Bath & Beyond: Octopus Chandeliers !!

11.-Negasonic-Teenage-Warhead.jpg
Not really, but if she were to branch out from underwater witchcraft I could see her coming up with a collection just like this.
They are actually by photographer Adam Wallacavage, although you can’t claim he wasn’t inspired my Ursula and all her wiggly black squidgy-limbs and SOGGY BACK-FAT FOLDS.
Jump in to see a few more from his long-limbed lamp collection.

!! OMG, She WAS somebody: [ft. Octavia St Laurent] House of Wallenberg’s ‘Be Somebody’ !!

octavia_m41p654HAD1qf3qk5o1_500.jpg
Somebody who knew a thing or two about being somebody was trans singer Octavia St Laurent, who you may recognise from the seminal ball-scene documentary ‘Paris Is Burning’.
Octavia died of cancer in 2009, having also spent a large portion of her life battling AIDS.
Her vocals and memory are captured in House of Wallenberg’s self-directed video for ‘Be Somebody’, featuring voguers from the ‘Homes’ of Ninja, Evisu and Milan, and a homeless man who also knows something else about being somebody.

The single is due to drop on March 18th and will include a B-side ‘Be Somebody Part ll’ featuring fellow Sweden-based Buffalo Stander Neneh Cherry [love love love] !
Work me god damn it !

!! OMG, “Oompa Loompa, do-ba-dee-doo”: Tate&Lyle’s edible hotel !!

hotelroomv4.jpg
Tonight, for one night only, British sugar-mamas Tate & Lyle open the doors to their edible hotel in Soho, London.
There’s 3 floors of themed rooms with macaroon walls, meringue rugs, fudge windowsills, edible books and when you’ve eaten yourself into a sugar-food coma, there’s vanilla-sponge cushions to lay your cotton-candy head on.
Guests to the edible hotel can visit the Mediterranean bedroom with edible bunting, rape-and-pillage a treasure chest of sugar-pearls and ginger spiced doubloons in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ room, and re-diSUGAR the South Pacific through an Easter Island statue made of chocolate mud cake.
You can see some behind the scenes and promo shots below.
Don’t forget, sharing is caring, you know some Willy Wanker is going to go in there all tongues blazing and BINGE-TONGUE-PUNCH the lot!

!! OMG, Defo! Deptford Goth’s ‘Feel Real’ !!

deptford.jpg
Covert footage from an extracurricular pottery class, where the peripatetic instructor decided she hated all the work the students had made so smushed it into a big pile in the middle of the classroom and art-pooped on it!

Makes for a pretty video to Deptford Goth’s ‘Feel Real’. His album ‘Life After Defo’ is out now on Merok.
Erm, there’s a queue of mid-life-ceramic-class-further-education students demanding a refund since that stand-in teacher went AWOL on their CAT-SHAPED VASES they made.
