!! OMG, a contest: Almodóvar’s ‘I’m So Excited!’ !!

ImsoexcitedOnesheethires_lo.jpg
Enter to win a prize pack for the new film I’m So Excited!, written and Directed by Pedro Almodóvar.

A very varied group of people are in a precarious situation aboard a plane flying to Mexico City. A technical failure (a kind of justifiable negligence, even though it sounds contradictory, but that’s what human actions are) has endangered the lives of the passengers on Peninsula Flight 2549. The pilots, hardened, experienced professionals are striving, along with their colleagues in the Control Center, to find a solution. The flight attendants and the chief steward are atypical, baroque characters who, in the face of danger, try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, while they wait for a solution. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: sex and death.

I’m So Excited! opened in select theaters June 28. Check your local listings.
The I’m So Excited! Prize Pack includes one I’m So Excited! flight attendant t-shirt, one I’m So Excited! inflatable travel neck pillow, and one I’m So Excited! pilot wing pin.

!! OMG, Snoop around: behind the scenes of Robyn & Snoop’s “You Should Know Better” !!


From Robyn’s 2010 record Body Talk Pt. 2, we finally get to see the video for her “unpredictable duet” with Snoop [then Dogg, now Lion] “You Should Know Better” featuring Simone, the African green house Queen Solomon as “the bohemian lady” [after the jump].

“What would have happened with Snoop if he had been a She / what would happen with Robyn if she had been a little Him?”

In the above behind-the-scenery video you can KNOW BETTER about She-Snoop’s “hella funny lanky body language”, have tea and “bickies” with Mini-Robyn’s family and find out more of how the video ties in to Robyn-choreographer/stylist/director Decida’s ongoing 2Faced1 project:

“A 2faced1 is a person who sees power structures. They can see themselves from an outside perspective and know what type of biases are connected to classifications such as gender, colors, sexuality and class, but they don’t define themselves through these. 2faced1s have a double view on identity, they know identity is dependent on context and therefore is fluid.”

!! OMG, “tearing down that bitch of a bearing wall”: Emma Finn’s ‘For Everything to Go Exactly as Planned’ !!


ECA artist Emma Finn used to study Psych and then worked in mental health, which is obvious as her artwork is flipping off-it’s-nutty-rocker!

“I’m drawn to film because it is a curious place regarding dimensions. It’s sometimes referred to as the ‘fourth dimension’ because it contains time but it often appears to us on a flat 2D plane, on a screen.”

In her above video piece entitled ‘For Everything to Go Exactly as Planned’, what appears to be an on-site planning meeting takes place between three workers, as narrated by a pendulating wrecking ball.
Much discussion and gesturing ensues as the executives look to make a difficult consensus which would have been a lot quicker had Alaska been there, because she “takes her job very seriously [and] by God there better not be any bullshit”!
