!! OMG, where the wild things are: Charles Frèger’s ‘Wilder Mann’ photographs pagan costumes from around the globe !!

Artist and photographer, Charles Frèger travelled the world to 18 different countries including Italy, Poland, Scotland and the Czech Republic to document the many different, still-practiced, pagan rituals and their costumes throughout Europe. Frèger was searching for what they call “The Wild Man”:

A centuries-old, legendary figure, the Wild Man continues to be an important symbol of transition associated with festivals that mark the cyclical patterns of life: the changing of the seasons, special religious holidays, rites of passage, life and death. In full-length portraits, the artist photographs celebrants enveloped in traditional costumes crafted from layers of animal skins, local plants, bones and antlers, which visually transform the masqueraders into a wooly bear, a long-horned goat, a demon or man of straw. Fréger photographs these imaginative creatures in their native landscape and explores human fascination with myth, ritual and tradition.

Back in 2005, I spent a whole summer sitting in my friend’s dorm room watching the first and second seasons of The O.C. It was addictive then, and now teens over in Turkey are about to get their first taste!
Variety reports that “the Fox youth drama that ran from 2003-2007, has been adapted for the first time by another country through Turkey’s Star TV.”Check out the trailer for Med Cezir the new, Turkish O.C. after the jump.
Which O.C. character are you most excited to see brought back to life? Do you think anyone in Turkey could ever possibly fill Julie Cooper’s 8 inch heels? Who is Turkey’s new Mischa Barton?

!! OMG, the dinosaurs are back!: Leaked pitch-teaser for ‘JURASSIC WORLD’ !!

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 4.04.39 PM.png
A slick, new teaser that appeared on Youtube yesterday suggests that the wheels are now in motion to produce a new addition to the Jurassic Park franchise, titled Jurassic World!
According to the YouTube poster:

All I can say is this video was shown as part of Iain McCaig’s presentation at the recent Star Wars convention in Germany (he’s the fantastic concept artist and designer of Darth Maul). I can only presume it was part of a pitch for reigniting the JP movie franchise, if anyone can confirm please let me know. It was apparently shown to Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg. Mr McCaig actually said “it certainly got Steven interested in dinosaurs again…” I just think is so cool.”

Are you excited about the possibility of a new Jurassic addition? Check out the new pitch-teaser after the JUMP:

!! OMG, mummy — look what I found!: 10 year-old German boy finds a real mummy in the attic !!

mummy-2-1.jpg
In “it’s-never-too-early-for-Halloween” type news (my local dollar store already has its decorations out): A ten year-old boy in Diepholz, Germany was playing in his grandparent’s attic when he discovered a sarcophagus hidden in the corner. Inside was a human mummy, which forensics experts say that after scanning, revealed to have an arrow lodged inside of its eye.
Another expert who attended a CT scan of the mummy says that while the skull is real, the rest of the mummy is a fake, compiled of “several human bodies”! Fierce!
Police say that if the mummy is found to be more than a few hundred years old, they won’t investigate foul-play. This is why I don’t have children.
