ADELE – Listen up…

Very seldom do I write about good things or things that make me happy, but after feeling a little shitty tonight, I decided to find some new music that I could sit and smoke cigarettes too.  After surfing iTunes and finding nothing but shit, like sell out Madonna, the gold album of Juno (which I already own and TRULY is amazing) and some kind of musically inspired re-vamp known as Mariah Carey or Mimi, I came across something that stopped me in my tracks.  Enter ADELE.  At first listen, sounds a bit like Amy Winehouse without all the heroin, but this bitch has pipes.  Not Celine pipes, but deep dark, bluesy pipes.  A native of South London, England, she is my new fave for chillin with me.  Personally, its all about ‘Hometown Glory’ and ‘Chasing Pavements’, but take your own pick.  Best news – her tickets to her North American tour went on sale today.  I will be linking her MySpace and then you should go to iTunes and download some of her shit, she rocks my world.  Pour yourself a nice glass of red, spark a dart and sit back and let ADELE take you somewhere else.  She has the look of a classic opera singer meets Kelly Osbourne and the lyrics and musicality of k.d. lang meets esthero – my kind of bitch.  Alright, enough, just check her out at her MySpace   ADELE

Stupid Pictures / Stupid People

I got lazy today and ripped off another blog to post something, but let it be said that this other blog called The Fail Blog is REALLY funny and just shows pictures of life sucking.  It reminds me of something that a late 90’s Alanis Morisette would have written as Ironic – that was her nice term for my life sucks shit right now and I am going to put out a really angry album to figure it all out.  Check out the pics and check out The Fail Blog to see tons more…

 
God would not appreciate these children that close to Jesus’ erect penile

 Shitty…

RECYCLED ART / FURNITURE

Was sent this cool pic.  Took me a minute to figure if I loved it, and I do.  I like anything that is made into something it is not supposed to be.  This is the suitcase chair.  BeDesign, Turkish company behind the pieces has come up with an innovative way to use what the Salvation Army would normally get.  What do you do with Grandma’s suitcases after she dies and you have to sift through her basement?  Make a chair, clearly….I assume these are some of the coolest suitcases, there are definitely some that would not look so hot – and once again, this is more art than it is furniture.  But, for the eco friendly design freak on your list – consider this….

BACK WITH STUPID PEOPLE VIDEOS…

wow – it has been a LONG time since I both laughed and felt tragically sorry for an individual.  Enter Lil J.  This bitch is hardcore yo, she doesn’t take shit from no one – to prove it, she put it all over You Tube and My Space.  Yet another example of how harsh the trailer park can be.  Lil J is, unfortunately, a VERY misguided albino, white trash, frontin, skinny white chick who cannot quite pronounce all the words she wishes to use.  If you don’t like this video, you can hit me up on my mother fuckin myspace, alright, out….

 

DESIGNER GAS

I like these ALOT!  I like what I hope they are trying to say.  This is my take – if we are going to be a society who is going to be at war, voluntarily, why not look good while we do it.  In a time where everyone is soooo worried about what they look like and ‘who’ they are wearing comes three designers who got together and are going to take this to a whole new level.  Designer Gas Masks – this way, nobody has to be out of fashion in the middle of the desert.  Take a look at these – they are quite erie and yet quite familiar…isn’t that sick in itself?  That a gas mask is a perfectly recognizable object – further – that the LV logo on the gas mask also makes sense?  As always, I am a fan of Louis Vuitton, but the Gucci isn’t bad either.  Maybe my thoughts on war would change if it looked this good….sigh…

CLASSROOM HY-JINX AVEC THE JEHOVAH’S WITNESS…

Haha – I laughed out loud when I saw this or (lol) because I remember being that immature student at James R Henderson school as the first kid got his calculator (I think it was the same Chinese friend because they always have technology long before us white folks – thats just a truth of society).  Remember how you figured out pretty damn quickly all the bad words you could spell on it and pass it around the class and the teacher couldn’t do ANYTHING and then you would show it to the Jehovah’s Witness kid in the class when she got in from standing in the hallway because her faith forced her to be isolated and lonely while the rest of us celebrated the national anthem the the fairy tale of the Lord’s Prayer.  She did not think it was funny – nor would I if I was a Witness of Jehovah and had to sit and whip myself while the rest of the kids exchanged Valentine’s and mutilated cheap drug store Easter Candy.  Poor Tanya.   Pure and utter brilliance…PLEASE get the nearest calculator and do it – at least for Tanya’s sake….

WWF – PLAIN & SIMPLE

Alright – I am back.  Not going to comment much on these photos – just let them be – they are the new campaign from the World Wildlife Federation that I think works.  They are finally coming into the millenium with ads that speak to todays generation.  Although I enjoyed Betty White talking about the duck billed platypus and the plight of, I like to make my own words for these scenes.  Think about the larger picture here… paint.jpgface.jpg tree.jpg robot.jpgCheck out http://www.funforever.net/archives/category/art/advertising/ for more WWF Ads.
