Screen Shot 2013-07-02 at 6.54.54 PM.png
Old Money drops the MOTHERLAND MOTHERLOAD in his new video, through a double-vision ritual that explores the Aztec and Afrique.
I’ve plopped the video after the jump due to it’s nudey rudey, and as I still can’t quite remember what happened on Pride Saturday night, that could well be me dancing around with my chicken cutlets hanging out and my cornrows hanging in!

!! 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, sounding good in a Buffalo Stance: Neneh Cherry & Afrika Baby Bam’s ‘Nina’ !!

neneh-cherry_2241001b.jpg
Neneh Cherry is communing with all kinds of motherland in this techy spoken word track with Jungle Brother Afrika Baby Bam.

Produced by Kieran ‘Four tet’ Hebden, the lyrics speak of freedom from social constraints and geographical placement. Hebden and Cherry are set to collaborate on a more substantial project which we can hopefully Buffalo Prance to in the not-so-distant future.

“she’s sounding good today…she sounding good in every way”

!! OMG, The Face [wrinkles edition]: Columbus Park’s Lok Tun Kun ladies !!


Filmed by Berliner Alexa Karolinski, fashion house Eckhaus Latta film the ladies of Columbus Park’s daily Lok Tun Kun “party”.
Donning pastel green and pink crop tops from Eckhaus Latta’s AW2012 collection, the ladies [and Mr Au, just ‘one of the girls’ at 01.55 in his cardi-crop-top] partake in their daily routine of dynamic synchronicity.
I’d love to see these ladies on the runway, all lined up in their off-white old lady corrective sneakers and elasticated poly-pantaloons, giving some seriously wrinkly FASHION FORWARD FACE!
