!! OMG, hand wash only: My Knitted Boyfriend !!

myknittedboyfriend02.jpg
What a hunk! ‘My Knitted Boyfriend’ is a woolen wet dream, created by Dutch designer Noortje De Keijzer:

He likes to sit on your floor, on your couch or at you dinner table. But most of all he likes to lay down next to you in bed. With your head on his chest and his arms wrapped around you. This way you will never feel alone ever again. With this man you can be sure, he will never leave you.

Got that girls, “never leave you”, so you can scream at him and be a total blooming bitch to him and he’ll still stay, just like a real life straight dude, and just like a real dude he can buy accessories and he has nipples and even a wooly 5 o’clock shadow, but unlike a real dude, you can bung him in the wash when he starts to get musty, and he wont try and cover up that HAMSTER PUBEY SMELL with Sea-Breeze Axe spray…pee-ew!
Basically he could only be more perfect if he had a massive knitted schlong that you could pop a woven condom on and ride ALL KNIT LONG!
You can read his story HERE, and see more pics and a video of ‘My Knitted Boyfriend’ [I’m calling him Fhread now], after the jump.

!! OMG, concrete [within] jungle: Tilda Swinton in ‘Stranger than Paradise’ !!

Screen Shot 2013-04-19 at 9.42.07 AM.png
Edward James was an English eccentric, poet, and surrealist collector who on inheriting a fortune from his railroad and mining mogul father fled England to grow orchids in the Sierra Madre Oriental mountains of the Mexican Jungle in the 50s. In the early 60s a freak snowstorm [described by the locals as “white ashes”] destroyed his orchadian nursery.
Following this, James dedicated the following 20 years to creating a series of concrete sculptures inspired by the surrealist artists work that he had previously collected, set within his rainforest estate of Las Pozas.

“I have seen such beauty as one man has seldom seen.”_James Edwards

These sculptures included totem poles, hidden rooms, towers, and staircases to nowhere which were often deliberately left unfinished like ruins amongst the trees
After James’s death, in 1984, the ruinous effect took hold, as lack of funding meant cultivated plants died, and the animals in the menagerie had to be released as the sculptures soon became engulfed by the surrounding rainforest.
In 2007, the estate was acquired by a charitable foundation who set to restoring Edward’s sculptures.
Photographer Tim Walker and Tilda Swinton -herself no stranger to surrealism [see 1992’s ‘Orlando’ or any of the work between Swinton and her late friend Derek Jarman]- set out to explore James’ restored jungle estate and those surrealist muses which inspired it’s creation, in [my emaciated opinion] the most incredible editorial I myself can recall seeing in W Magazine, for their May 2013 Issue:

“I hadn’t realized…how incredibly ambitious it had been of James to create another world somewhere so remote…where nature can be so destructive. It’s the power of the dreamer.”_Photographer, Tim Walker

Follow the jump to explore the remainder of their fantastical collaborative mountainous concrete [within] jungle editorial.

!! OMG, Vree your mind: ‘Diana Vreeland, The Eye Has To Travel’ !!

dezeen_Diana-Vreeland-The-Eye-Has-To-Travel_2.jpg
Directed by her grandaughter-in-law Lisa Immordino Vreeland, ‘…The Eye Has To Travel’ [trailer after the jump] follows Diana from the ugly duckling of the family to working as a columnist at Harper’s Bizarre for a quarter of a century, before becoming Editor of American Vogue and later consultant to the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The film reveals how Vreeland championed less conventionally beautiful women with stand-out features, famously having Barbra Streisand shot in profile to accentuate her Jewish nose at a time when noses were ‘supposed’ to be cute and small.
The film just won first place in the ‘Fashion’ category at the Design Museum’s Design Of The Year Awards in London, and is well worth a gander, purely as it chronicles the life of a woman who famously claimed the bikini to be the most important thing since the atom bomb, and announced the colour pink to be the navy blue of India.
I mean of course!

!! OMG, the vision of Divinity: Jeffrey Schwarz interview !!


Jeffrey Schwarz has directed over 100 films; documentaries about movies, films on films, covering the making as such classics as ‘Footloose’ [this amounts to several films, obsessed much?!], ‘Bewitched’ and ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.
His in-depth documentary on the queen of all queens, Divine, premiered this year at SXSW and features previously unseen photos and videos provided by Divine’s mother Frances Milstead who was still alive when Jeffrey was collecting together his material for what he describes as “the ultimate ‘it gets better’ story”.
Schwarz sat down with Afterelton to discuss his dream of one day making a Divine Biopic, his search for film-funding sugar-daddies or “donor angels”, and remembering that John [Waters] and Divine, were creating “movies for gay people who didn’t get along with other gay people”:

“Today’s queers need to remember people like Divine and the people on the fringes who made it easier for the rest of us.”

True dat!
You can read the whole interview HERE [I promise only a single mention of canine excrement] and you can browse the North American film screening deets, after the jump.
