Former !! omg blog !! editor Bmad has another life as an author of books, and his latest one, The Island After, is available for a really short time for FREE on Barnesandnoble.com. Download it here!

A haunting novella by the author of SEPTEMBER GIRLS (HarperCollins) about recovering reality TV stars and the strange afterlife they enter once the cameras are gone. THE ISLAND AFTER focuses on Jake and Tanzy, friends and sometimes-lovers who competed together on an early season of a Survivor-esque show called The Island and have since struggled to reclaim their lives. Both hilarious and profound, THE ISLAND AFTER explores the fuzzy borders of truth and Reality as well as the hidden costs of fame.

!! OMG, the Amish are coming: Thom Browne brings his Amish inspired collection to London’s Dover Street Market !!

1045332.jpg
Designer Thom Browne unveiled his new window installation for London’s Dover Street Market yesterday, and set the tone by referencing the Amish barn raising rituals from his hometown of Pennsylvania.
I think it’s great that Thom’s making the Amish look so chic. I was scandalized after watching Devil’s Playground where they were all just painted as horny, truck-loving, meth-heads. I’m not saying that these models are any different, but I do believe that he’s really doing the community a service. Thank you, Thom — I hope they can see this!
Check out the rest of his Dover Street Market installation after the jump.

!! OMG, Judging a book by it’s cover: Keys N Krates’ ‘Treat Me Right’ !!


An exploration of various stunning harlequin romance novella covers Keys N Krates’ ‘Treat Me Right’ video I’m totally seeing more of a sort of would you rather [damsel decision dilemma version].
Would you rather:
1) kiss besides a caged waving panda?
2) make out with a denim all-over Nicholas Cage large-faced looky-likey [at 00.45]
3) ride atop a bejeweled Pegasus steed
4) or forget about all those basic bitches, I’m wearing a topaz blue circus catsuit [no bra] and fighting off mutant raccoon she-wolfs with my semi-auto that I got ?
It’s a rhetorical question, the ‘correct’ answer is ‘number 4’; NON-BASIC TOPAZ BANSHEE, those others are all rancid hungry-bum curb-slop!

!! OMG, total Tarth: Gwendoline Christie !!

Gwendoline+Christie+Dresses+Skirts+Evening+TbrHv5fF4y8l.jpg
Gwendoline Christie has acted for the Royal Shakespeare Company, been in the West End production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus’.
More importantly she saw Jaime Lannister’s peen last week in Game Of Thrones, as we all know her best as the butch-brawler Brienne of Tarth.
I am a big fan of Christie, not least as she told Wonderland Magazine she wanted to ban Uggs, and her favourite food is wood, but also because she is a 6″3′ glamazon and eats men for four square meals a day [probably between slices of wood].
Follow the jump to see Gwendoline looking like the absolute ultimate fashion tower that she is, and let’s face it, as Anna Dello Russo once almost kind of sort of said; “YOU NEED A FASHION TOWER”.

!! OMG, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz: Mounir Fatmi’s ‘Sleep (Al Naim)’ !!

If you are not familiar with Sir Salman Rushdie, read a blooming book some time. His first novel ‘Midnight’s Children’ won the Booker Prize in 1981, and his fourth novel ‘The Satanic Verses’ won him death threats and from angry Muslims and a fatwā issued by the -then- Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
Oopsie!
Paris-based Moroccan Artist Mounir Fatmi’s latest piece is a reinterpretation of Andy Warhol’s 1963 film also entitled ‘Sleep’, and features a 3D render of Sir Salman Rushdie…asleep…obv.
This 6 hour durational piece was censored at a show at l’Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris last year but is currently showing in Fatmi’s solo exhibition entitled ‘History is Not Mine’:

“Rushdie lives between different worlds, between countries, between life and death. It is at once boring and voyeuristic to look at someone sleeping for six hours. I want the audience to feel guilty about Rushdie’s destiny.”
