!! OMG, Cole & Rubber: Lily Cole’s ‘Wild Rubber’ !!

English model Lily Cole has created a short film for Sky Rainforest Rescue in Acre, Brazil with the aim of helping to protect one billion trees from deforestation.
The film consists mainly of footage shot on an 8mm camera she bought in Paris with fellow Brit and film artist Tacita Dean, and contains images of a rubber-tapping community in Feijó, who’s livelihood is threatened by continued deforestation.
You can read a quick Q&A over at NOWNESS, where Lily discusses the accompanying rubber dress that Vivienne Westwood made specially for her to wear at last week’s Met Ball.

!! OMG, ∞ : I Will, I Swear’s ‘Long Days’ !!


Jonathan Van Landeghem and Fien Deman make up Belgian duo ‘I Will, I Swear’…yeah, I’m sure you do hon. Their video for single ‘Last Days’ comprises of footage from the –Shanah Noynaert directed- short film ‘∞’.
I have printed out a picture of my visage and stuck it onto a piece of Wheetabix box over her face in the video and now it’s my droopy-ass face he loves…”I’m shy, don’t look at my popsicle-stick neck!”
You can have a peaky-hear of their B-side ‘Sleep’ below and watch the melancholic-frolic-flick ‘∞’ entirely, after the jump.

!! OMG, this gives me JELLY BELLY: Takashi Murakami’s ‘Jellyfish Eyes’ !!

JE_Screen Shot 2013-05-03 at 8.52.57 AM.png
Animazing multi-medium artist Takashi Murakami’s directorial debut ‘Jellyfish Eyes’ [Mememe no kurage] tells the story of a young boy who is evacuated from where he lives to a small town and a school where all kids get given a remote control Furby/Tamagotchi-type pal [with monstrous ulterior motives].
One such ‘Poké-pal’ Luxor is like a fat humanoid Falcor, whilst Masashi’s own ‘Friend’ is Kurage-bo [Jellyfish Boy] who was made super cute for the film but originally was meant to be something altogether different, as Takashi told Flavorwire:

“He was almost naked, my original design…he has a big penis or something…and really, you know, smells stinky.”

Erm, ok hon…:s…It being, A BLOOMING CHILDREN’S MOVIE I think somebody smart decided this to be not too appropriate so the design was toned down to look more like an abundance of testicles [much better and far more appropriate of course]!
But fret not you Hentai whores, Murakami has already wrapped on the admittedly darker part 2 which even by his own standards needs custieing up a little. You can KONICHIWATCH the Japanese trailer after the jump.

!! OMG, Screen Lover come rescue me: Eli Craven’s Screen Lovers !!

screen_lovers02.jpg
Sometimes I watch an old Hollywood classic and I’m like, “erm honey he’s been staring at your pointy tatters for like an hour and a half, why don’t you just hurry up and black’n’white feltch-huff his ass already, it’s a blooming inevitability”, but then that’s much more ‘Buttsex With Tiffany’ than ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and anyway feltching was probably called something much more demure back then like “POPPY-TRINKLING” or “chiming the dinner bell” or something.
Well collage photographer Eli Craven also got a little impatient with the silver screen suspense and so took to crease-kissing and blowing and hugging the leading loves, the results of which turned out quite beautiful and just a tad human-centipedey.

“As I looked through them, I really wanted to see them come together, touch lips, make love, whatever comes next, so I started folding them into one another.”

You can peak amongst the folds after the jump, just don’t unfold them, they are stuck down with poppy-trinkle artist’s adhesive goop!

!! OMG, the chic tomfoolery of…: Lernert and Sander for Papermag !!

L&s_ac6c93776cd0e3efd261d1f7dd.png
Brand innovators, face painters and perfume mishmashers Lernert [Engelberts] and Sander [Plug] have worked on branding campaigns for the fashion likes of Kenzo, Viktor & Rolf, Selfridges and Elle.
Their work is the epitome of chic tomfoolery and they are serious about being humorous. They spoke to Papermag about bonding over wearing the same pair of agreeably “hideous” shoes, wearing “small…lesbian” shoes now, and secretly getting off to the underwear models in the JC Penney catalog.
You can read the entire interview HERE, and see their omg-featured projects ‘Everything’ HERE and ‘Natural Beauty’ HERE.
