Is This the New Graffiti: Part 2

A couple months ago I posted about what I believe to be a "stuff" graffiti artist. Last time it was marshmallows scattered for blocks. A couple days ago I saw this pile of pennies strewn all over the sidewalk.Again, pretty clever. Not anything that's hurting someone or the aesthetic environment and it will probably be gone in a few days. I'm into it.

Down to There

Rarely can I say I love everything someone does, but everything Martin Margiela does is amazing. Here is a look from S/S 09 that is bananas. They made a Barbie out of it, too, which is enough bananas to split your head. Also Lady Gaga is wearing him and Jay-Z is rapping about him. Which is to say, if life were like the SATs, there would be a question like this: Tommy Hilfiger: 90's Rap: Martin Margiela: 2000's Pop, which makes him badass. Also there would be a sub question that would say: Tommy Hilfiger: monkey-faced: Michael Jackson: dead. What was the question again?

I'm Still In Love With You

Love this album cover. And as always, Al Green is still The Man.

Thought I'd include this video, too, because I know more than a few people who'd love to wear that blazer.

Tender Buttons by Broadcast

About 20 seconds into this video I realized my mouth was hanging open.

Zombie Stardust

I was thinking of being Zombie David Bowie for Halloween. Let you know how it goes.

Creepy Snow Globes

I love these snow globes depicting depressing, foreboding, surreal, and just plain ominous scenes. I actually got to see these in person last year at a Chelsea gallery, where a woman with white gloves was asking "Would you like me to shake this?". Why, yes! They are by Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz. I think I'm in aesthetic love.
